    Summary

    Short ficelt inspired by a gifset on tumblr, where Dudley stands up to Vernon and tells Harry he doesn't think he's a waste of space and I went off on a headcanon tangent of "whatifs". Not beta'd not proofed, just copied from the post so people could read it easier :)

    Summary

    Lucy kept faith. Peter kept steady. Edmund chose, again and again, to earn his title every day of his short/long life, trying to make up for a sin that everyone but himself had forgiven him for.

    Susan lives.

    Summary

    When she was small, Susie’s aunt Amelia had taken her to work whenever her parents asked her to babysit. She toddled around her office. When Susie was older, she got to sit under her aunt's desk in court and listen to her give out rulings, verdicts, decrees.

    There was tradition there, scripts and structure, and Susie had felt herself lean into them, comforted, strengthened. Over the years, she saw so many ways the system could be corrupted. Umbridge used it like a blunt weapon and blood purists had snuck into it for years like burrowing termites, undermining the foundations, making it their own home.

    When Susan Bones was twenty-three she would look across her steaming mug and the Ministry breakroom table, and see Hermione aching to burn it all down to ashes. Susan wanted to scour it to its roots, instead, wear it down to its rebar and concrete, and then rebuild from the old, worn foundations on up.

    “Your parents died for you,” Susie told Harry Potter once. “My aunt died for this. Now either shut up and get me a fresh cup of coffee or try to drag me out of here before I finish this.”

    But that was a war away. That was a childhood away from now.

    Summary

    It felt like this: with so much past sitting like an anchor between the two of them, it was impossible to simply be. She needed to write that book, and he needed to read it. (Post TLG)
