    Summary

    Runway is the battlefield, not the prize. Miranda Priestly, seductive manipulator and strategist versus Andrea Sachs, Nigel’s replacement and Anna Wintour’s ex-protégé. What, exactly, are they fighting for?
    AU in that the story takes place three years after the movie which, incidentally, did not have Andrea in it but another second assistant who tossed the phone in Paris. Miranda is slightly younger (48), the twins are slightly younger, too (9) and she’s been divorced from Stephen for two years. Miranda got Nigel the EIC gig at Runway France. Before he leaves, he has one month to find and train his replacement...Andrea Sachs, recently from Vogue. Andrea is older (35), married to Nate who is a stay-at-home dad to their four year old daughter. I also took the liberty of ‘cherry picking’ scenes/dialogue from the movie for this fanfic disregarding chronology. 
    Usual disclaimer about nothing is mine, not making money, etc. applies.

    Summary

    It wasn’t like the thought had never crossed her mind, especially on those days when they wandered through parks. It could be so easy to get caught up in the idea that they were on a proper date, but most of the time the thought would fade away as fast as it came.

    They were friends, and Tonks liked being friends with Hermione.

    or: The one where they talk about missed opportunities to snog in a movie theater, and then they start going to the movies.

    or: The one where Tonks realizes gender is confusing, Hermione is struggling, and then they teach each other their intersections.

    Summary

    This story explores a world where Maura helps Jane come to the conclusion that she is asexual. And later how Jane and Maura navigate and build a relationship through that focal point. I would categorize this as ‘Serious Fluff’ – soft, romantic moments with a serious undertone. Not full of drama or angst.

    Note: It’s a little non-canonical – I’ve ignored some things from the later seasons or twisted them around for my purposes.
