    Summary

    The first friend that Newt Scamander makes at Hogwarts — well, his first wand-bearing friend, as opposed to one with fur or too many legs, which is only a distinction that needs to be made to people that don’t know better — he doesn’t meet until the Easter term of his second year, when Leta Lestrange comes back from a six-week absence with a different haircut and an ebony prosthetic where her right arm had been.

    Summary

    I started writing Reprise in November of 2015 after... well, I can't remember the details. I remember being hellbent on reading a good time travel AU, and not finding any that featured Ben Kenobi physically going back in time instead of mentally reappearing in the body of his younger self. So, naturally I decided to write one myself.

    If you want something done...

    I was fresh into a new graduate program, stressed, and lonely, and this monster came tumbling off my keyboard faster than I have written anything, ever. After I hit 100k words, I figured I should start splitting it up into easier-to-chew chunks. It's been my pet project ever since, and frankly, I did not know I had the ability to write this much this quickly. This story has taught me how to critically edit, how to cut chunks and rewrite them, how to listen to an editor (and voice of reason, thanks dear), how to use at outline, and how to plan a long, long plot.

    Ten months after penning the first page, I'm 230k words in and gearing up to start writing the third (and hopefully final) installment of this AU. Hopefully, it'll go as smoothly as the first two parts.

    Have fun reading!

    Summary

    “That’s all very flattering,” Etta says when Diana has finally run out of steam, “but surely you have more qualified candidates than me?”

    “You are of the world of men.” Diana looks a little embarrassed. “But not a man.”
