    Summary

    Bhallaladeva had wanted to believe that there had been no choice for him. Next to such goodness, what path had been open to him but evil?

    Now there was no brother against whose standards he might justly fail. Alone, Bhallaladeva could only judge his actions for what they were. He saw himself clearly. And, in the end, Bhallaladeva saw nothing he did not already know.


    A slightly canon-divergent exploration of Bhallaladeva’s psyche. No redemption, no sympathy for the devil, just an exploration of the motivations and interior world of a man consumed with envy, hatred, and obsession. Warnings for one-sided incestuous longing between cousins raised as brothers and for violence.

    Summary

    Harry Potter spent his eleventh birthday in a cabin on a tiny rock in the middle of the sea, listening to his cousin snore on the couch.

    When a knock sounded on the wind-swept, rain-drenched door, it was not a giant fist (or a half-giant's fist). It was a short sharp rap that sounded once, twice, three times before Minerva McGonagall simply charmed the lock open and stepped inside.

    "Apologies," Minerva said crisply, as Vernon raced out brandishing his rifle and Petunia pulled Dudley up off the couch and behind her. "I wasn't sure you could hear me over the weather.” The rain fell down behind the professor in a roar. She was perfectly dry.

    Minerva fished in her pocket without looking, because the only things allowed in her pockets were only ever exactly what she needed. “I've come to deliver this," she said, pulling out a letter and handing it to Harry, who was cross-legged on the floor, "because our owl post seems to have been unable to get through.”

    “And I've come to deliver this," she added, pulling out a second letter, "because Hogwarts by-laws require a professor to hand-deliver acceptance letters to Muggleborn families for their explanation and comfort."

    Summary

    She moved into a new apartment, got herself a new job and a few new friends. What she didn’t realize, was that on the other side of her wall was someone who would change her life. A man with bright green eyes and a charming grin.

    The neighbors met on the balcony, but can their little world up there survive when it meets the real world?

    Summary

    Short stories from the Toasterverse, because the author gets panicky writing long form stories built around plot and has to finish something in order to function.

    Phil has problems with these people. So does the Author.
