    Summary

    In the wake of the Dark Lord's resurrection, fractured shards of the Black family - once scattered - are pieced together as the embers of resistance flicker to life once again. Unlikely partnerships are forged, and trust must be earned in a race against time to protect the next generation from the mistakes of the past and guarantee a future for the wizarding world.


    A "Regulus Lives" AU in which Regulus survives the horcrux cave in 1979, but instead of remaining in England, sets off to France to destroy the locket and learn how to exist outside the context of the Family - and when Voldemort returns, so does Regulus. This trilogy begins at the very end of "Goblet of Fire," progressing through the Second War primarily from the perspectives of Regulus and Sirius Black, with additional POVs occasionally included for broadened perspective. Against the backdrop of a budding war and a horcrux hunt, the brothers begin the healing process for their broken family.

    Backstory, as well as side stories, are organized in approximate chronological order in the companion series, "renascentia: between the lines."

    Summary

    In another life, Orochimaru never leaves Konoha, opting to remain within the village that equally reveres and reviles him. Fighting a bitter battle against forces within the village that are more influential and well-positioned, he finds himself gifted with one last shining opportunity: three children, a team of genin, handed to him because Konoha has no better choice. Orochimaru agrees to become a jounin-sensei for the first and the last time, taking into hand the next generation's Team Seven: Uchiha Sasuke, Nara Shikamaru, and Uzumaki Naruto.

    [ A gradual exploration of the author's most prominent Naruto headcanon, with a good!Orochimaru (well, sorta good) who eventually becomes the Godaime Hokage. Lots of chakra theory, cool jutsu, in-depth backstories, diverging plotlines, relationship development, political intrigue, and den mother Orochimaru parenting feels! Be prepared to suspend your disbelief, for this will be another one of my long-running intense worldbuilding reboot AUs. Let's go have fun! ]

    Summary

    “I guess I’m not ready to join the land of the living just yet,” Harry says. “Need a little more time here at Hogwarts, with all the ghosts. You know what I mean?”

     

    In the aftermath of the war, Harry doesn't feel ready to leave the safety of the castle, and to go out into the world at large: he wants to stay. The Room of Requirement - with great reluctance - grants his wish.

    Summary

    Your first kiss was with your best friend when you were both thirteen, behind the high school bleachers during the homecoming game. Hob bet you ten dollars you wouldn’t do it, but ten dollars was two tickets to the movies at the old theater on the square, and they were showing Godzilla vs Mothra that weekend.

    And Mike was grinning when you kissed him, because he knew that second ticket was his.

    (Or, Woody grows up, graduates, and goes to college with his best friend. Somewhere in the middle, he falls in love, too.)
