    Summary

    He waves her off, kindly, but he does. “It’s the best place for him, Minerva. The only place for him.” He apparates away.

    Minerva does not.

    **

    In this world, Minerva McGonagall watches the Dursley's more and does not like what she sees. It turns out parenthood did not pass her by after-all.

    Summary

    Harry did not know this and would not know this until Mrs. Granger mentioned it casually over a Christmas dinner years and years later-- but she and Mr. Granger reported the Dursleys for child abuse and neglect, over and over.

    The reports got lost-- minds scrubbed down, papers vanished-- but they kept calling in reports. They considered kidnapping. They couldn't imagine why the wizarding world might want to keep their chosen one somewhere so toxic, why they might want to keep this underfed child and his messy hair with those people.

    "My mother left me a blood protection spell," said Harry, whose scar had not ached in years. He poked at his mashed potatoes under the focused attention of Mrs. Granger's stern little forehead wrinkle. "I had to live with family, blood family."

    "Then they should have made them treat you right," Mrs. Granger said, as though it was that simple.

    Mr. Granger gave Harry another helping of peas.

    Summary

    “I’m so sorry.”  Parvati gasped, feeling tears in the corners of her eyes.  Of course, of course the normal guilt had to set in now that Lavender was helping her.  She wasn’t sure if it was survivors guilt, after all they’d both survived, but it was something and she hated it.  Lavender looked confused as she wiped the tears from under her wife’s eyes.

     

    “Why?”  She asked softly, pulling Parvati to her chest as she pressed gentle kisses anywhere she could reach.  Her forehead.  Her lips.  Her nose.  Anywhere.

     

    “I wish it’d been me."

    Summary

    “You know Professor Lupin was a werewolf?” Hermione said, ten minutes into a very awkward lunch she had asked for in an equally awkward letter.

    Lavender pushed a sauteed carrot through a little puddle of pasta sauce. “I think everyone heard about that one. Someone told the papers, or something, right?”

    “Er, yes,” said Hermione. “Snape did. Which is what I– I mean, it’s related. Oh, I wish you’d gotten to talk to Remus about this. He was a lovely man.”

    “Not as lovely as Lockhart,” Lavender said and she and Hermione spent a moment in wistful remembrance. “God, I feel old,” Lavender said.

    “Anyway, Snape,” said Hermione. “Snape and Lupin. When Lupin was at school, Snape would make him a potion that would… tame him, on full moons. He could just curl up in his office and sleep by the fire. If you’re interested, I’m trying to learn how to brew it myself.”

    Lavender shook her head. “We’re not friends,” she said. “Never have been. So why are you doing all this?”

    Hermione looked like she was trying to say “we’re friends,” but she couldn’t get it out.

    Summary

    It was the second time Bella Swan went missing. The first time they found her dead to the world, shivering and cold as a statue. The second Angela finds her drunk, throwing rocks at a glass wall and screaming at the sky.

    In Angela's opinion, it's an improvement.
