    Summary

    Albus Dumbledore rose to his feet, smiling at them in that way of his, like he knew something you didn't and he was proud of you for it. "Friends," he began.

    The door thudded open and the Marauders burst in, late and pink-cheeked with cold. The headmaster smiled at them, too, and Sirius gave a cheery little salute back.

    Severus sunk lower in his chair, staring witheringly over his butterbeer. "You told Potter about it, too?"

    "He might as well put all that energy to good use," said Lily. "And, to be accurate, I told Remus."

    "But Potter, really?" said Severus.

    "He and Black cooked up a jinx that gives you a boil every time you say a slur to a Muggleborn," said Lily. "It was either invite them to Alice's war club or bake them cookies, and I know where my skills lie."

    Severus sniffed. "Don't come crying to me if he tugs your pigtails."

    "Come crying to me if he pulls yours, and I'll deck him," said Lily.

    (Slight AU in which Severus apologizes, tries harder, and stays friends with Lily)

    Summary

    What if Elizabeth Bennet had accepted Mr Darcy's proposal in Kent? What if they married before he stopped being the proud, arrogant man she detested? What if, in order to avoid the ruin of her beloved sister, Elizabeth chose to swallow her pride and say yes to a pre-reform Darcy?

    Mr Bingley has left Netherfield, and in his stead a rich but unscrupulous man takes residence of the manor. While Elizabeth is in Kent, visiting her recently married friend Charlotte, she receives letters, which tell her how Jane is soon to be wed to a man Elizabeth can't stand. And then, unbelievably, Mr Darcy, the last man in the world she would ever choose to marry, proposes to her. If she accepts, she could introduce Jane to all the eligible men in England, and rescue her from the clutches of despair. Even if the man offering, has just insulted her entire family and seems to assume that now that he has proposed, he must be accepted. Elizabeth longs to put him in his place, but thoughts of rescuing Jane make her do something that will change the course of her life forever...

    Summary

    Tim flat-out refuses to use either 'ma'am' or the proper styling of The Right Honourable with someone who's been comparing him to various parts of a donkey's anatomy for as many years as Katherine has, so Prime Minister it is.
