    Summary

    Here's what we know: Lily Evans, after years of badgering and bad courting attempts, dated and married one James Fleamont Potter.

    Here's what we know: Regulus Black, after years of slow separation from his popular, effervescently Gryffindor brother, died a slow drowning death, alone and friendless and forgotten.

     

    Here's what we know: Severus Snape lost his only friend in a moment of humiliated, misdirected, anger and spent the rest of his life closed-off and spiteful, hating himself- his life - his job - his decisions - but with no choice but to drudge drearily onward, to honor Lily's last sacrifice.

     

    But. What if.

     

    In this universe, an alternate and dazzlingly parallel world, Lily Evans, a girl who has fought and raged and will not fucking lose her best friend to the capricious smiles and dazzling arrogance of the blood-purists looks over, glances, really, at a table hung with green and silver, meeting gray eyes with her own poison-green.

     

    I wonder, Lily thinks, alight with hatred for James Potter and something else; maybe, Lily thinks, and pulls Regulus Black from the depths.

     

    So spirals a bifurcation. So springs our story.

    Summary

    “Joe didn’t lie back in that lab,” Booker tells him gently. “I am selfish. I am a liar. But beyond everything else, Nicky, I’m a coward.”

    “Really,” says Nicky, looking unimpressed.

    [Booker tries to save his family from Quynh. He's rather good at it, if not a little dramatic about the entire process. In the meantime, he learns a little more about himself, his family, and the definitions of bravery, forgiveness and love.]

    Summary

    On her layover in Munich, she stops in the ladies’. She’s washing her hands when someone pulls up at the next sink, and says, “Corporal Freeman?”

    Forcing herself to breathe slow, raise her head slow, she looks. The sight of desert camo takes her right out of the bathroom, back to the heat and the buzz of flies swarming to her own blood.

    Summary

    The team finds themselves trapped in a sticky situation at the end of a job in Canada, and Nile can't imagine they're getting out without a scratch (lots of scratches).

    But, Nicky and Joe have a long-standing tradition that Nile is about to discover: a tradition that Booker has had enough of.

     

    (Or: Sebastien le Livre finds himself officiating YET ANOTHER mildly legal wedding ceremony for his brothers in the middle of a battle)
