  1. Summary

    Family is a concept that extends well beyond the ties of blood.

     

    Alternatively: Star Wars is painful, I am determined to make it less painful, and everybody finds their family in the end.

    Summary

    Perhaps it was time, the Doctor thought, looking down at the book she still held. She wore a new face now, one that River would never see. Perhaps it was time to read River’s diary at last.

    Summary

    On the train platform, Harry suffered a hug from Remus, a hair ruffle from Sirius, and a "don't do anything I wouldn't do" from his mother, and then he ran for the brick wall, cart rattling before him. The snowy owl they'd gotten him hooted softly in protest. Harry had named her Ororo after the Muggle comic books his mother had introduced him to. Lily took Harry to the comic store every time he sat through a whole visit with his aunt, uncle, and cousin and didn't kick anybody unless they kicked him first.

    Bill tried to wipe some dirt off a dodging Ron's nose. Ginny complained loudly about being left behind. Fred and George ran off to see Lee Jordan's spider. People watched the Weasleys from all directions--they were hard to miss--and Ron's shoulders slowly rose up and up to his reddening ears. He missed the big empty orchards behind the Burrow already.

    Ron was one of the last people on the train. He slid past staring eyes and finally stepped himself into an almost unoccupied compartment-- there was just one small boy tucked in there. He had messy dark hair, slightly askew round glasses, and a comic book held up in front of his nose.

    "Is it okay if I sit here?" said Ron. "Everywhere else is full."

    Summary

    In the Shire, hobbits say, "What lovely weather we've having." They also stir their teacups for four and a half clockwise rotations, place their left elbow seven-eighths down the way of the arm rest, and sniffled pointedly, which roughly translates to: "This tea is over-steeped and bland, your furniture is both uncomfortable and horrifically tasteless, and you're a twit of a host."
    And I think that's beautiful.
    ~
    Hobbitish is a language of manners and etiquette, the dwarves don't even know that Hobbitish is a thing, and Bilbo is trying to keep a straight face and his peace of mind while the Company unintentionally keeps sexually propositioning him and challenging him to pie-eating contests to the death.
    ~
    Actions speak so much louder than words.

    Summary

    Bilbo Baggins hated Lobelia Bracegirdle long before he'd ever met her. And in turn, Lobelia Bracegirdle, being the ambitious and overachieving sort that she was, absolutely, totally, wouldn't-have-spit-on-him-if-he-were-on-fire despised Bilbo Baggins long before she'd ever met him too.

    Against all odds and their feuding families, they get married.

    But it's not that kind of love story.
