    Summary

    Maya never imagines a life other than this, other than hanging out with the cool kids from the Sorcerer’s University, running and flying around the vibrant side-streets of Avalir with the wind rustling through her glossy feathers, waking up each morning to the voice of Avalir’s Herald ringing out over Excelsior Plaza.

    Maya never imagines a life other than this, but it comes rushing to meet her, anyway.

    ~

    In the final hours before the last sunrise that will ever shine upon the city of Avalir, Patia Por'co sends away her life's work into the hands of a young child, thousands and thousands of miles away. She does so with nothing more than a wild hope, a plea, that someone will continue to carry out the dream that she cannot.

    Avalir dies in a rush of fire, soot and pure ether; an arcane marvel is no more.

    Avalir is dead. But her memory lives on.

    Summary

    “You and Nev did Herbology together, right?” Hannah prompts with a smile, glancing between the two of them.

    It’s second nature to downplay and deny it after all those years of trying to keep her interest in it under wraps. But just now, the solid warmth of Neville’s thigh presses against hers and she feels the shift beneath her ribs, like latches clicking into place and giving space for her lungs to expand normally for once.

    “We did,” she says, letting herself meet his eyes for a fraction of a second.

    “He told me you were better at it than him, which I find hard to belie—”

    “That’s because it’s not true,” Pansy interrupts, turning to Neville. She raises a brow, feigning confidence when her insides are a twisting, pulsing mess of something with a terribly long wingspan. Pixies? Doxies? A fucking hippogriff? “Are you taking the piss?”

    Neville shakes his head, eyes bright with mirth though his mouth stays serious. “No, are you? You’re brilliant. Always have been.”

    Summary

    It happens like this:

    Hermione is hunched over her desk like some kind of Tolkien goblin, essentially deep-throating three Sambal fish tacos from Del Seoul in a desperate bid to finish a late lunch before her next appointment (she’d rather choke to death than be late) when a light knock on the open door makes her head snap up.

    “Dr. Granger?”

    Holy shit. 

    Holy shit

    Her previous nonchalance about choking to death vanishes when she sees who’s standing in her door and a piece of fish hunkers down for a long winter in her esophagus. 

    “Are you--shall I perform the Heimlich?” He asks, face familiar and concerned as he moves a step closer. “I don't think your face should be that shade of purp--”

    She cuts him off by vomiting into the trash can.

    Airway finally clear, she gulps a few greedy breaths. Her lungs expand and her face burns, and Hermione genuinely wonders if she’s hallucinating. She’s not prone to fantastical thinking even though she’s well acquainted with the fantastic, but...why else would Draco Malfoy be standing in front of her?

    Malfoy, on crutches.

    Malfoy, handing her a tissue?

    Malfoy, but...not.

    It’s complicated.

    Summary

    Pike is a cleric of Sarenrae, leading her parish as best she can. Scanlan is a pop star, disillusioned as they come. Grog quit competitive fighting years ago, but the spirit still fuels him everyday. Vax is an antique picker. Vex, a park ranger, who found a man in the woods one day and now she's married to him - That's Percy, by the way. He runs a repair shop occasionally. Keyleth, well, we're not so sure about her, but she's always doing something.
