Seifer used to be better at talking about his feelings, or so he thought; maybe he’d just been good at reacting to them, which isn’t really the same thing.
Seifer deals with students, the administration, birthday parties he'd rather not attend and memories he'd just as soon forget.
(Part III of the series, Part IV will be an alternating POV. As mentioned, this is a Seifer/Squall-centric fic, but the relationship is Seifer/Squall/Rinoa as a polyamorous V with Squall as the point.)
- Part 3 of come aboard (let's go dreaming)
After the Battle Of Hogwarts and the fall of Voldemort, Draco Malfoy is remanded to Azkaban along with his father and the other Death Eaters to await trial. To his shock, he's acquitted-- conditionally. He's to spend his summer under house arrest at the Manor, then head back to Hogwart's to complete his education as part of his "rehabilitation into society". He'd rather fight a Hungarian Horntail whilst naked, but he wasn't given the option. At least he's got a new wand (thanks for nothing, Potter) and a secret stash of euphoria inducing potions to get him through the year.
Hermione Granger cannot wait to get back to Hogwarts. Although she's dreading having to face the place where she lost so many friends, she's eager to make up the months that she, Harry, and Ron spent on the run. Taking seven NEWTs, she'll be spending the bulk of her time in the library and was looking forward to it. If it was a bit of an excuse to avoid the crowded hallways and noisy body of students in an effort not to set off the panic attacks she's been having since the war ended, well, no one had to know. Besides, surely they would go away now that she has a purpose and a plan for her future again.

The thing about redemption is it’s not easy. It’s hard. Probably one of the hardest things Ben has ever tried to do. But do it he will, because he knows it will be worth his while a thousand times over in the end.
Or, the redemption arc I wanted to see for Ben Solo.
(The title is the author's idea of being clever, and the author's sister's idea of a bad pun. Either way, in this fic Ben Solo will try his utmost to make right what he did wrong, and I will try my utmost to make right what TROS did wrong.)
