    Summary

    Fuck. Not once had he ever considered his soulmate would be anything other than a black woman. His opinions on that are already far too solidified to allow for anything else.

    Yet green eyes and a carbon copy soulmark are telling him otherwise.

    Fuck this shit.

    Summary

    The pairings in canon got a bit tight and close and...honestly, quite weird.

    Let's loosen that up a bit, maybe add a dose of reality or three, plus some books, coffee, and mysterious creatures.

    (More than three doses. Yes, yes.)

    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.

    Summary

    Bilba has been a slave her entire life. All she knows of the outside world is what she sees from time to time outside the gates of Moria and the stories her mother used to tell her. Stories of a place called the Shire where her mother once lived and a placed called Erebor where, as far as she knows, her father still lives. Stories of dragons a thousand times larger, and more intelligent, than the beasts the orcs rode and of a strange concept called freedom where one was allowed to live as they wished with no one to tell them what they could, or could not do.

    The stories meant little to Bilba. The only future she had was to live, and die, as a slave as countless number had before her.

    And then the orcs dragged an injured female firedrake through the gates, her rider screaming obscenities behind her as he fought to reach her side...and everything changed.
