Fandoms: Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling

Hogwarts is the home - the escape - Harley never thought she would find, but escape isn’t all she’ll find there.
She’ll find friends she loves, and power she’d never dreamed of. Magic that takes her breath away, and danger that could quite literally do the same - permanently. Love that she’d never had, and shadows she wished she’d never seen. Snakes, staircases, spellbooks…
And the hope, she thought she had lost forever.
Yes, Hogwarts is the home Harley never dared to wish for.

It is dark without stars, without a light to guide your way.
Let me tell you a story, boys and girls. Take a seat, grab your favourite blanket, and listen. Maybe you will learn a thing or two.
There is darkness in us all, some more than most. The path to villainy is fraught with indecision, but here is how they became.

How do legends begin? How do champions get written in the stars? What makes a hero?
Sometimes it’s a presence, sometimes a smile, a shout of, “I AM HERE!”
Other times, it's a hand in the shadows pulling you to your feet when you feel like you can stand no longer. Protection when no one else will give you shelter, leading you to the eye of the storm, helping you ride it out till you can see the sunlight again. The soft glowing light of the moon in the dark, warm and home but surrounded by night.
It might be all the little boys and girls out there that just want to help, that are aching to give the world just a little bit of kindness. Maybe that makes a hero.
We all see the bright stars of the Hero Industry, the flares of light. We praise, and we have hope.
But what we don’t see is the hands in the shadows, the quiet takedown of organized crime. The eyes in dark alleyways and the risk of going underground.
Izuku Midoriya has a quirk that scares people. Izuku Midoriya wants to be a hero. He cannot be a flare or a bright shooting star. He cannot carve his name in the stars, but maybe, just maybe, he can still land on the moon.

The first time Izuku remembers meeting Shouto, he’s fourteen years old and immediately smitten.
(AU where Izuku keeps getting killed during their first year at UA—so Shouto keeps travelling back in time to save him.)

Spite could and would carry you far. Zuko said fuck off to his father and the Fire Nation.
The first thing Zuko tells him during their first lesson after the whole Sun Warrior ruins ordeal, is “Fire comes from the breath.”
a lesson in learning, and re-learning.
In a world where violence is the norm and trust is a weakness, Pepper Potts is still diabolically efficient, Natasha Romanov is still as terrifying as ever, Bruce Banner still has breathtaking anger management issues, and Tony Stark is still a genius. This time, though, Tony has a plan, and Loki is far from the biggest threat the Earth faces.
(Or: I wanted to write Evil!Tony. What I wound up writing is not precisely what you would expect.)

No, she thinks, staring at the Met like it’ll change its name if she glares hard enough. But then Arianne sees Myrcella’s eyes. The joy. The best people in the business- they don’t do it for anything other than the glee that comes from winning, from fighting the entire world and coming up on top. And that glee’s written out on Myrcella’s smooth skin.
Oh, god, we’re going to go to jail, thinks Arianne, heart sinking.
[Ocean's 8 AU, where everything is complicated and everyone's tragic and the heist is the least important part of the show.]
