    Summary

    And, most importantly, she doesn’t let herself think about why she signs up for a study group almost involuntarily, almost indiscriminately, five months out of rehab, wondering if this will be the moment when someone will turn to her and say You know, I’ve been a part of a lot of study groups that fell apart because of unresolved tension.

    (Sometimes the Study Group shares more than soulmarks.)

    Bookmarker's Notes

    This is a hurt/comfort story that's not about a romantic relationship. It's about the terrible pressure that comes from other people's expectations of you, well-meaning expectations from people who don't really see you.

    Summary

    “No, I’m serious, I really do have like, uh—a goblin… thing… in my house!” Jaskier insists. “Will you come take a look at it? I don’t want it to, I don’t know, eat my liver or something?”

    Geralt massages at his temple. “Very few monsters are that picky. It would probably just eat all of you.”

    Aka: The one where Jaskier hires Geralt to investigate a monster in his house, and the outcome is somehow better and worse than Geralt expects.

    Summary

    Ginny's pregnant, then she's not and Harry's single. Harry, again with no family, doesn't know what to do with this turn of events, or how to find a new life—post-war, post-Ginny, post-abortion—in which he belongs. He doesn't expect that life to include dancing to the Backstreet Boys with Hermione and Draco Malfoy. A story of finding belonging in the unexpected.
