    Summary

    Hermione felt the pounding in her ears again. She would see him for the first time since the Great Hall, gaunt and stricken at the Slytherin table with his mother clutching his arm. She hadn't meant to look for him. Not in the corridors, not beneath the white sheets of the fallen, not on the way to the Chamber of Secrets with Ron, but she was a stupid girl.

    Summary

    When Petunia Dursley refused to take Harry in she forfeited his birthright protection, so Dumbledore took the baby to the safest place he knew: Hogwarts.

    The applicable staff (mostly just… not Snape) took Harry in on a rotating schedule as he grew from baby to toddler to child. They traded extra credit for babysitting among the older students, and Harry grew up knowing a few dozen different laps that were safe and warm to nap in.

    This was a Harry who grew up among books, among old transient walls and learned professors. They gave Binns night duty sometimes, and let him talk young Harry to sleep. This was a Harry whose world changed, on principle, daily. The stairs moved. The walls became doors. You had to keep your eyes open–you had to pay attention. So he did.

    He grew up in a school. Knowledge was power, but knowledge was also joy. This was his sanctuary. There was magic in his world from birth.

    Summary

    Derek Hale doesn't do love. He's tried twice; the first time it made him a killer, and the second time cost him his whole world.

    So he doesn't do love, and he definitely doesn't love Stiles. He doesn't care about Stiles' new powers or the fact that Stiles has been talking to Derek's dead mother, or even the fact that for some reason supernatural creatures from all over the country are sending Stiles offers of courtship.

    But when Stiles claims he's not part of Derek's pack and takes off for parts unknown...well, maybe Derek cares a little after all.

    Summary

    Peter's autistic. Yes, of course he’s still Spider-Man. Deadpool tries to accommodate, with mixed results.
    Then: plot.
    The fic is better than this summary, scout's honor.

    I play fast and loose with canon but try to stay true to (what I perceive to be) the spirit of the characters.

    • Rating *may* change to explicit later. I have an outline but the boys are already starting to veer off. I can't make promises.
    • Chapter-specific warnings will be given.
    • Story/chapter titles are all Eels songs.
