    Summary

    Tony had … mostly… given up the fantasy that Gibbs could or would ever settle into the role of surrogate father. So, it shouldn't have hurt so much to watch Gibbs willingly stretch himself with Damon Werth, the should-have-been-Silver-star-medal-recipient, now disgraced for having taken the illegal but clearly effective route of steroids to overcome an anaemic disorder and become the marine's marine he had become.

    He should have been used to life's little reality checks, by now. He really should have, but who was he kidding, no matter how much Tony had tried to convince himself that he had grown out and of beyond the need for it, something in Tony still wanted and needed acceptance and approval from his chosen father figure.

    But if he hadn't been clinging so desperately to that last little pathetic illusion, it couldn't have gained the mental and emotional power to become his last straw - snapping before the narcotics easing his dislocated shoulder had even worn off. That may have been a blessing, though - in and of itself- allowing Tony to stay numb as he planned his exit from NCIS, the MRCT, and his wistfully-chosen, once-upon-a-time family.

    Summary

    Hermione Granger knows she's not a good person. Disillusioned with life at only twelve years old; she is cynical, manipulative, ruthless and, above all else, a survivor.

    For six years she has lived on the streets of London with only her sharp mind and her sharper knives to keep her alive, but a letter from an owl changes everything for Hermione, and the bond she forms on the Hogwarts Express with a timid boy with broken glasses, skinny wrists and a lightning-shaped scar will change the whole of Wizarding Britain.
