    Summary


    Trish Una was a scared teenager who owned nothing but her name, the clothes on her back, and a knife hidden in her boot. She wanted to curl up in the corner and hide. But she had been trying to act like she thought another Trish Una might act, one whose father was a mafia boss, one who was a little mean and didn’t feel ashamed, one who wasn’t afraid of anything. She squared her shoulders, raised her chin, and pushed open the doors.

    Trish Una’s entire life has been stolen from her. Thrown into a world she doesn’t understand, surrounded by strangers.

    What happens in the quiet moments between the fights? She waits, she worries, she watches those around her. And gets to know them, if only a little.

    Summary

    "Proofing, also sometimes called final fermentation, is the specific term for allowing dough to rise after it has been shaped and before it is baked."

    Less than a year has passed since the final battle, and the Ministry is already up to its old tricks. Harry would very much like them to stop ignoring due process, tossing people in Azkaban, controlling the press, and menacing the populace with dementors.

    He would also like, if at all possible, to bake a passable loaf of bread.

    Summary

    They had left her behind. Again. Was this her role? To be left behind?

    A series of canon-compliant one-shots, each told from a different point-of-view, each telling a different part of the story, but each with a common theme. Sometimes waiting in the sidelines is just as hard.
