    Inspired by a post on Tumblr, this is a AU story set during Harry's sixth year at Hogwarts, with one big, foul-mouthed difference. Instead of Horace Slughorn, the position of Potions professor will be taken on by...Gordon Ramsay.

    Summary

    “Don’t worry little duck, I don’t think war will reach this side of the world.” Katniss added trying to ease her sister’s concern.
    “But what if it does, what will happen to Rory or Gale… or Peeta?” Prim asked her eyes sad.
    A chill sank in her bones, and she stopped short, breathless. She thought of them dressed in an army uniform. She thought of the trenches of the Great War her father used to tell stories about.

    Summary

    Prompt: What about Lupin? Lupin, who lost everything the night James and Lily died, who forgave Sirius, who died in battle?
    --
    When they told him the news about Lily and James, Lupin finished the mission he was on before he went to Godric’s Hollow. He stood in front of the Potters’ ruined home and fell apart in the cold streets. He picked the pieces up, slowly, over years and years.

    In the first half hour, he remembered how to breathe. He picked up his composure sometime the next week. He patched together nights of sleep. Sometimes the stitching couldn’t hold; sometimes he couldn’t pull himself out of bed in the morning.

    Remus kept picking himself up and patching himself together. Today, he walked by a beautiful woman with long red hair and when she laughed he didn’t flinch with sorrow. Today, he made a joke, the kind James would have collapsed at and Sirius would have smirked at. Remus patched himself together, scars and sorrows, kindnesses and chocolate.

    We are the ways we rebuild ourselves.

    (a brief, rambling character study of Remus Lupin)

    Summary

    The beauty and the beast; the boy and the land-bound siren; the least interesting quality in either of them is the shape of their skin. Fleur is vain, selfish, petty, pretty, and she falls whole-heartedly into a war that isn’t hers.

    Fleur is horrified when Molly thinks she will leave Bill for his scars. She is horrified that anyone would think her love skin deep, because Fleur Delacour, above all, knows what it is to be skin deep.

    They have been casting her as that all her life, but this beauty was her skin, not her vanity. This was her birthright, as much as Harry’s green eyes or Bill’s red hair and the war on his heels. This was so far from her self.
