    Summary

    In 1993, Gilderoy Lockhart points a stolen wand at Harry Potter and Ron Weasley with the intent to Obliviate them.

    The wand doesn't backfire. Gilderoy's "discovery" of the Chamber of Secrets is a short-term success.

    Other consequences are not short-term at all.

    “How does it feel to be the Boy Who Lived again?” Snape asks Potter that evening.

    “It’s stupid,” Potter replies. “Why does Wizarding Britain only have one newspaper that’s considered legitimate, Snape?”

    “Harry, I have no idea.”

    The question surprises JD. He can see it surprising JD, the split-flash shock of blankness that spreads outward from JD's eyes, like the blast radius of a detonation. Then JD smiles, and it's the most terrifying look that Spence has ever seen on his face. "I'm always fine," JD says.

    Summary

    It is said that when Alexander the Great was on his deathbed, his advisers and companions gathered around him and asked, to whom shall your ring of rule be passed? He answered, tôi kratistôi -- "to the strongest". (If you try to call Tseng Hephaestion, though, he'll probably shoot you in the face.)

    The boy -- man -- who is smirking down at him, soft and amused, before returning to tending Tseng's wounds with his own hands. And that is the reason -- one of the so-many reasons -- why Tseng would bend knee to Rufus without thinking twice while the President will never have anything more than the most cursory measure of Tseng's obedience. Jonathan Shinra has never shown a single sign that he understands the weight of what is owed to, rather than simply what is owed from, those who look to him. Tseng went out tonight to kill at Jonathan Shinra's orders and in Jonathan Shinra's name, but Rufus Shinra is the one here to do a liege's duty, and that is why Tseng is not the only one of Shinra's people beginning to turn his face towards Rufus's rising sun.

    Summary

    The wind lifted Damen’s hair in a wild tousle of loose curls. His gaze traveled from Laurent’s face, moving lower. He said, “I could throw you over the back of my horse.”

    Laurent felt a shockingly crystalline pulse of dizzy fear, quickly subsumed as a prickle of heat swept down his chest. He focused on keeping his eyes clear, impassive. But even as he responded, he imagined how it would be.

    Being assigned guard detail is not exactly what Maria Hill wants from her first week at S.H.I.E.L.D. HQ, but she really didn't expect it to turn out like this.
