Rating: G

Words: 2,000 exactly

Notes:

By “twenty years on from the start of the Harry Potter series” I mean I’ve set this roughly in the summer of 2011, so it’s 20 years after the start of the main action of Philosopher’s Stone (1991: Harry’s 11th birthday/getting his Hogwarts letter), and 13 years after the end of Deathly Hallows (1998: when Harry’s nearly 18).

Probably some small deviations here from Pottermore and latterly JKR revelations about characters’ post-canon lives, since I tend to view those as interesting expanded universe but not strictly canon, and because in some characters’ cases I’d already written stories and established headcanons before JKR’s info came out. Minor stuff, though! Details like where Fleur works. :-)

RAISE YOUR LANTERN HIGH

Summary: In which Remus and Tonks fight battles, arrest criminals, befriend werewolves, overcome inner demons and, despite it all, find themselves a happy ending. A love story, and a story of the Order years. (My Remus/Tonks epic, which has been years in the making! This is the second half of the story, set in the Half-Blood Prince year.)

RIPE AS SUMMER QUINCES
(Part 2 of Golden, Ripe and Rotten)

Summary: “Albus, my white knight,” Gellert said, and something in Albus’ chest loosened and blossomed, as it always did when Gellert spoke those words. “What shall we do today, with all the world at our feet?”

Words: ~2,700

Notes: This is part 2 of a series of 3 stories about young Dumbledore and Grindelwald, from beginning to end of the summer they knew each other in Godric’s Hollow. Part 1 of the series is “Sharp and Bright against a Golden Sky.”

This is a (slightly) revised version from the one I originally posted. (The original one was here.) Nothing too major’s changed, just a few threads I wanted to highlight a little more, to make this a better set-up for the upcoming story #3. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] stereolightning, [livejournal.com profile] huldrejenta and [livejournal.com profile] gilpin25 for commenting and tossing around ideas with me!

BE THE LIGHT IN MY LANTERN

Summary: In which Remus and Tonks fight battles, arrest criminals, befriend werewolves, overcome inner demons and, despite it all, find themselves a happy ending. A love story, and a story of the Order years. (At long last, my Remus/Tonks epic, which has been years in the making!)

Note: Okay, so here's my posting plan for the next weeks – because things are about to get (even more) hectic for me, I'm going to switch to posting chapters every two weeks. So I won't post a chapter next Friday, but I will post on or around Friday two weeks from now. And on or around Friday two weeks after that. And then that's it for Part 1! (Part 2 will follow...) Oh, and as always, this story is simultaneously updating at AO3 and FF.
