    Summary

    “Alright.” Hecate says, through clenched teeth, fingers clutching at the fabric of her pinafore by her waist.

    Pippa lights up. “Really?” Hecate nods, quite stiffly. “We’re going to have a great time, I promise. We can share a tent and toast marshmallows and chant around the fire and tell stories and we don’t have to join in all the time either. We can sit things out if you want to, okay?”

    And even now, Hecate is amazed by Pippa’s absolute consideration for her, she’s almost sure she doesn’t deserve it. But still, she’ll never take it for granted.

    Summary

    “Apprentice?” Miss Hardbroom’s voice is very strangled, like she’s chewing on glass.

    “Don’t you think that’s the ideal solution? Mildred needs a guide in the ways of the magical world. And who better to teach her than someone as dedicated to The Craft as yourself.” Miss Pentangle smiles sweetly.

    Mum is still looking between them all only now she seems about to laugh. “Yes, that’s right,” she leans in again, her smile every bit as sweet as Miss Pentangle’s. “How kind of you to offer, Miss Hardbroom.”

    “I never offered -”

    “I’m sure Mildred will benefit greatly from everything you can teach her. After all, you are rather an expert in The Code, I hear.”

    Miss Hardbroom continues to sputter.

    Pippa befriends Julie Hubble.

    Hecate suddenly finds herself with an apprentice.

    Mildred has watched The Parent Trap one too many times. But she should have been watching You've Got Mail instead.

    Summary

    When Ada Cackle departed for the Michaelmas Headmistresses' Conference and handed over responsibilities to Hecate Hardbroom, she issued her Deputy with three, clear instructions: 'Don't let Pendle near the larders, check on Agatha at least once a day lest she attempt escape, and for goodness sake Hecate, under no circumstances expel Mildred Hubble.'

    A feat which may be easier said than done, when Mildred Hubble's attempts to research her family history put not only herself, but the entire academy in mortal peril.

    Featuring a wicked ancestor, an angry Julie Hubble, and Hecate Hardbroom having to both climb stairs and express emotion within the space of a single day.

    Summary

    Hecate had a plan. It allowed for a number of contingencies; the way she needs days even weeks to build herself up enough to talk about her feelings, the possibility that Ada didn’t feel the same, the need to seek employment elsewhere should things become too awkward.
    The one thing Hecate didn’t plan for: the possibility of Cackle’s being invaded by a coven on the run and kidnapping students left and right. And of course that’s exactly what happens three days before her plan is meant to be executed.

    Summary

    Hecate Hardbroom thought that her summer would be time dedicated to her craft as a potion expert and no students to interfere with that. Of course, though she was wrong in assuming that's what she would get, as a Mildred Hubble appears in the dead of night weeping about a broken arm and a dead mother. It is up to Miss Hardbroom to look after her, and become her guardian for the time being. The only thing is can she do it alone? Pippa Pentangle keeps reminding her it takes a coven of witches to raise a child.

    Summary

    When the ice melts, when the magic comes pouring back into the walls, breathing tremulous life into the castle, reversing the effects of the magical death of the grounds and its occupants, it meets the emptiness inside of her and she collapses.

    (Magic is an organic thing; it lives and breathes and grows at its own rate. It cannot be forced along, can only be nurtured or confined and repressed, and although it grows, although it regenerates, it cannot be manifested suddenly out of the aether. It’s fundamental magical theory, really.

    And it's for that reason Hecate lies, slack-jawed and frightfully pale, in the infirmary for five days before regaining even a whisper of consciousness.)

    Or, the magic at Cackle's takes some time to recover, and Hecate has some personal demons to battle in the meantime.

    Summary

    Her mind is swimming, so it’s a terrible thing for her to do, to perform magic when she is not nearly as focused as she should be. Her mind thinks of the security of her bedroom, as she stomps down the thought of everyone looking at her, laughing at her, and then she thinks of Pippa. Pippa wouldn’t laugh at her. Pippa would be her security around all of those people. And she’s already started the spell but now she thinks only of Pippa, wants only to be with Pippa. And then-
