    Summary

    Lily Slytherin, the new Crown Princess of the Dark Side, returns to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry with a two-part mission: create a scandal at Hogwarts by instructing the Basilisk to attack unworthy attendees, and figure out a way for her father to break into the school so he can reunite his diary Horcrux with the rest of him.

    Summary

    Draco had to wonder, though, why in Merlin's name it was always his family bringing about their doom, like a screwed up version of that ridiculous Muggle Christmas character Hermione had told him about. Why couldn't it, for once, be a distant Weasley relative to be led astray, or really, anyone who was not sharing a bloodline with him? But that would be too easy, Draco figured, and if his life was anything, it was always horribly difficult.

    Draco enters his third year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and if he expected himself to be used to drama and life-threatening plots this time around, he was, sadly, mistaken.

    Summary

    When a story is as old as this one, so old that it remembers when time itself was new, it’s impossible to not alter it with each new telling. However, even the most frequently adapted stories will always contain some hidden veins of truth, if not in its mutable players and setting, then hidden somewhere in its core to hold meaning for lovers of all persuasions. Perhaps here you will find nothing resembling the history recorded in textbooks, or as much similarity as you might like to the versions of this story known by heart to many, but fear not, the opening strains will remain familiar, for-

    Once upon a time, in a far away land, a young princess lived in a shining castle.

    Alternative summary: Maybe not the lesbian Beauty and the Beast retelling we deserved, but the one we needed.

    Summary

    He had always been mesmerized by the mural - by the mermaids - when he was a child. He would just sit for hours, looking at them, his chest filling with some unnamed emotion… His father used to shake his head fondly at him, telling him stories.

    ‘Once’ he used to say, ‘one of the mermaids made a pact with the Sea Witch; her voice for a pair of legs. A world of pain, just to follow her heart, and the dashing prince who captured it.’

    ‘Did she find it?’ Stiles would ask him, eyes wide, his little heart beating hard in his chest.

    ‘No, no she didn’t. She turned to foam, and her soul rose to the sky to dance with the wind for eternity.’
