    Summary

    “I was afraid.” Her ribs expand in his palm as she takes a breath. “But I am not afraid now, Jon.” Tilt of her head as he sinks his mouth to chase away the heat of his fingers from her neck. “I am here with you.”

    Lips resting on her skin as he breathes the scent of her. “You are here with me.” Low and soft, voice curling from his throat like a fire burned down to embers. “Wherever we may go, you are always here with me.”


    A wildling scout finds a fire-haired stranger in the snow — but within each other they find something else entirely.

    Summary


    Jeyne Westerling, chestnut curls and slender figure everything she brought with her. A child on her hip. Auburn hair and blue eyes, a toothy grin and Sansa had never hated a woman so dearly.
    "Little Lord, Eddard Stark, Winterfell is yours," Sansa offered her brother’s heir, solemn words to a child who could not understand the misery attached to them.


    While the Dragon Queen keeps a white wolf as prisoner, there are more dangerous games being played North. While there is a stream, there will always be trouts, even if they share their blood with wolves.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    First in the Rigel Black Chronicles! A Song of the Lioness-inspired, gender-swapped take on HP: potions prodigy and halfblood Harriet Potter switches places with her cousin, Archie Black, to attend Hogwarts and fulfill her dream to study under Snape (blood prejudice is alive and well). Fantastic world-building and very compelling (epic-length!) series. Rigel/Harriet can sometimes feel a bit Mary Sue-ish (far too powerful/competent), but the rest of the series really makes up for it.

    This story covers Year 1; the author is currently working on the 5th installment in the series.

    Summary

    'She wonders if Voldemort had been a person once. She wonders if he had done nice things just for the sake of it. If he had ever shown kindness and mercy. She wonders if he had ever been shown kindness and mercy.'

    The war changes Parvati. How could it not? She searches for the meaning of life and death in the haunted hallways of Hogwarts and what she finds will eventually lead her across the world and beyond on a quest for knowledge, and a man who, unlikely as it seems, is the only person who will ever truly understand her.

    **long story short - not abandoned, but my laptop died and I lost all of this fic. One hiatus until I finish rewriting**
