    Summary

    On a dark night long ago, Sirius Black took a wrong turn and never found Peter Pettigrew. Instead of Azkaban, Sirius settled down in Little Whinging to keep an eye on his godson, and hired Remus Lupin to run his bookshop for him. Then one day when Harry was eight, Sirius found out how the Dursleys treated him, and stole him away.

    Stealing Harry is an alternate universe version of Harry Potter's life before his time at Hogwarts. It is the story of Harry's family: Sirius and Remus, Ted and Andromeda, Nymphadora, Neville Longbottom, and even Severus Snape, all banded together against a newly powerful Peter Pettigrew who is still searching for a way to resurrect Voldemort.

    Laocoon's Children follows Harry through his time at Hogwarts as he develops a very different group of friends: Hufflepuff Draco Malfoy, Ravenclaw Padma Patil, and Gryffindor Neville Longbottom, strange companions for a Harry who was sorted into Slytherin -- the house of his beloved Professor Snape.

    This universe ends in Harry's third year, and is partially incomplete. As it is not likely to be finished, the last story in the series is a group of notes I made on where the story would have gone and how it would have ended.

    Summary

    In the middle of their second year, Draco and Harry discover they're soulmates and do their best to keep it a secret from everyone.

    Their best isn't perfect.

    ~

    “Are you trying to get killed, Potter?” Malfoy drawls, stalking forward. Quick as a serpent himself, he reaches out and grabs the snake just below the head. It thrashes in his grip, but is no longer able to bite anyone. “This is a poisonous snake, and I doubt anyone brought a bezor with them.”

    Harry glares. He opens his mouth, and feels the beginning the snake’s language pass his lips, and this isn’t what he wants, what’s the point of insulting Malfoy if he can’t understand him –

    Malfoy’s eyes widen. He slaps his hand over Harry’s mouth, “Potter, what the hell–”

    Summary

    Raven’s hair falls wildly across the cushions, shining like tangled satin ribbons. She breathes softly and evenly, but it’s her voice, in those breaths. Quiet and solemn, but somehow innocent. Her eyelashes are long and dark and flutter with the REM movements beneath her eyelids, and it’s hypnotic.

    There’s no clear explanation as to why Tara wants to touch those half-opened lips and see if they’re as soft as they look. That’s probably just a side effect of being tired.

    It’s easier to sleep when someone is next to you, of course.

    Summary

    Time is not real, but that does not stop certain times from being existentially terrible. 3 AM is one of those times. Fortunately, it's easier when there's someone else with you.

    Summary

    “Is this a good omen or bad omen?” Carlos asks, thinking he already knows the answer. Cecil surprises him, which, he realises, is becoming somewhat of a routine.

    “Neither. Just an omen," Cecil says, quietly.

     

    In which people are disappearing from their beds, Carlos is NOT superstitious, and there are no such thing as angels.
