    Summary

    In 1994, harried Muggle Studies professor Charity Burbage juggles You-Know-Who's resurgence, another tumultuous year at Hogwarts, her rebellious nephew's entrance into the school, and several frustrating new additions to her class. In 1976, unpopular Ravenclaw fifth year Charity Burbage is assigned pureblood classmate Regulus Black as her Transfiguration tutor. An unlikely, unwilling friendship slowly develops. The consequences of this happenstance are far-reaching and unexpected.

    (Or, Harry and Ron drop out of Divination and into Muggle Studies, the Dark Lord returns, and quite a lot happens in the Hogwarts' staff room.)

    Summary

    After the Christmas argument about Harry's Firebolt, Hermione decides that she's not putting up with the boys' sulking anymore, and she's going to do something about it. What happens next is a testament to the strong bonds forged through people actually talking to each other, the desperation involved in keeping your best friend alive and in one piece, and the desire to build a better, safer world for him to live in, no matter what the objections from the adults.

    In other words, the risk in manipulating things to create child-soldiers is that they will decide that you are also something to protect against.

    Summary

    Unexpected side effect of Jaskier praising witchers far and wide: children making the logical jump that witchers can handle ALL monsters. Including such subspecies as the under-the-bed variety.

    And, well, what are you supposed to say to a child who asks you to fight a monster for them?

    (Note: Chapter 5 is the reason for the M rating. All other chapters are T for language.)

    Summary

    The problem wasn’t really the talking. Geralt had heard humans talking constantly every time he’d been within a quarter-mile of civilization his entire adult life. No, it wasn't the talking at all. The trouble with Jaskier was that he cared about the answers.

    In which Geralt learns to face himself, his relationships, and his place in a human-dominated world. Taking place in the gap between the meeting in Posada and the banquet in Cintra, this story explores growth, trauma recovery, mental health, friendship, family, and societal bigotry.

    Summary

    Sometimes a family can be you, your not-exactly-boyfriend, your not-exactly-ex, your horse-sized dog, and your teenaged goddaughter you've never actually met before.

    ~

    Geralt's goddaughter, Ciri, never asks him for anything. Never, that is, until one summer she asks to stay with him to avoid being sent to the same old rich kid camp. So Geralt, Jaskier, Yennefer, and Geralt's Great Dane Roach embark on a cross-country road trip to retrieve Ciri and take her to the beach. Hilarity--and found family--ensues.
