    Summary

    This began as an exploration of Elder Scrolls lore through the eyes, and adventures, of the Last Dragonborn. It got away from me.

    Act 4: The First Dragonborn is dead; his soul, his power, his knowledge, and his unfulfilled fate, added to that of the Last Dragonborn. It is time for Alexa to return to Skyrim and decide what being the Last Dragonborn means; not just for herself but for the world.

    Summary

    Someone is stealing computer equipment from across London, and no one can work out who or, for that matter, why. With alarm bells ringing, the legendary Flying Squad turn to Peter for help, and Peter turns to Dr David Mellenby, an astrophysicist who knows rather more about magic than Peter expected. In an investigation that criss crosses the capital, but especially the river, Peter learns more than he ever wanted to about quantum, cryptocurrencies, and just what it takes to destroy a computer.

    Summary

    Sometimes Nightingale wondered what would have happened if Molly had turned out to be human. Or, if he was being completely honest, if he himself had turned out to be more human.

    Summary

    "Augus was beginning to lose sight of what he wanted, why he had come here. Fuck the King, kill the King. Either he veered between extremes of hatred and devotion, or he felt nothing at all. Since that year in the dark he felt cut off from the part of him that knew itself and felt at peace with its desires, that still pool where things were calm and clear. When he slept, which was rare, he dreamt of birds. Of wandering in the dark, sightless, surrounded by the beating of wings. Of sinking his teeth in, feeling the crunch of those hollow bones. A mouthful of feathers. The taste of blood—whose blood?—like the iron tang of a bright winter day. The drives he could never quite separate: to love, to consume. Feathers lodged beneath his claws, the quivering of wings."

    In Augus' fourth year as the Raven Prince's consort, an explosive secret threatens the fragile accord between them.

    Summary

    There is, for various reasons, no easy way to say to a person hey - your friend and mine, the last competent magician in England, stepped out at ten this morning with a last admonition to his apprentices to get their latin homework done whilst he followed up on an uninteresting lead on our latest magical murder case and he hasn’t been seen in the eight hours since.

    Nightingale worries a witch; Peter is in the dog house; Lesley rails against the concept of politeness; the world is deprived of another Fenton video on YouTube.

    Summary

    In which a charming and dubiously-connected Frenchman hoves back into view; Peter gets to make several new entries in his Big Book of International Folly Contacts (Informal); Sahra displays an unexpected breadth of knowledge; Nightingale and Seawoll sneak around in the background trying not to make it obvious that they've started banging for England; and your author seriously starts to wonder if she's bitten off more than she can chew.

    Summary

    His attacker was on the floor, curled in a tight motionless ball. Nightingale stared, catalogued the long tangled hair, tattered and shabby clothes that had once been a maid's uniform.

    "Molly?" he said. "Molly, it's me."

    Summary

    Time and Destiny are a fickle thing.
    Do you know the feeling, when you know that you will regret it for the rest of your life if you don't do something?
    And when you can pinpoint years later the exact moment where you went wrong? If you had just reacted differently you would not be here, but somewhere else. somewhere better!
    Suche wistful thinking can drive you mad and give you a reason to better yourself. Peter Grant had several of this moment in his life. And as he lay dying in the ruins of the Pergola in Hampstead Heath, he contemplated all these moments. Would he act differently in those moments, if given the chance? hell yes. But those maybes and could have's, should have's are just dust and mist.
    But there are also those moments where you do the right thing even if it is not easy in that moment.
    Time and Destiny are fickle lovers, they have their favourites, their champions and they love to meddle.

    Peter Grant was the first English apprentice wizard in over seventy years. Again.

    Summary

    "Be honest, sir," I said, scrabbling for the left flipper, "I look like a moron."

    "I’ve seen you look moronic before, Peter," Nightingale said, flicking the wheel right and sending us careening down a side street and me thudding against the left-hand door. "This does not even, as you put it, 'crack the top ten.'"

    Plagued by the ghosts that he has left behind at Ettersberg, he stumbles blindly on through the German forest, desperately trying to reach the coast, the weight of the dead heavy on his heart.

    Summary

    In London, there is a very particular Bookshop. It doesn't look like much. It's small and old and rather dusty. But it's there all the same and sometimes, it's even open.

    Summary

    The deaths of Vernon and Petunia Dursley were, just as the rest of their lives had been, unfortunate, but ordinary and that was that – or so it seemed on the surface. Vernon’s death was to prove to be just a beginning……

    Set in 2019, pre-COVID, we join Harry Potter who is now 38 years old and has been heading the Auror service for the last twelve years. Peter Grant of the Metropolitan Police service has been promoted to a DS. This story which concludes the Vernon Chronicles, incorporates back story references to content of Serpentus Connexio set in 1991.

    Spoiler alerts/canon divergences

    Canon – HP: If there are conflicts with content from the dratted Epilogue & Harry Potter & The Cursed Child then so be it.

    Canon – RoL: It was originally drafted prior to the, then, predicted Autumn 2019 release of False Values (Ben Aaronovitch).
