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. :-)

In the winter after the war, Ginny navigates not only her own recurring nightmares, but also the demands of Quidditch captaincy, the weirdness of double-dating with one's brother and the surprisingly difficult path back to Harry, along with Hermione's obsession with inter-house unity, Neville's retreat into his books, Luna's lonely family life and a gaping hole in Ginny's family where her middle brother used to be.

In the winter after the war, Ginny starts putting the pieces back together, with a little help from her friends.

Summary: Crookshanks disliked the loud, ginger-haired one from the first.

Characters: Crookshanks, Hermione, Ron and others

Words: ~1,100

Notes: Something short I dashed off today, while the idea was in my head – [livejournal.com profile] stereolightning (“The Cat in the Night”) and [livejournal.com profile] gilpin25 (“Found in Translation”) inspired me, and I thought I’d try my hand at Crookshanks fic!

And it hurts even to have to say it, but: Warning for major character death in this chapter. (But if you've read OotP, obviously that's not exactly a surprise.)

LIKE A CAT IN THE SUN

Summary: Remus is in a house full of women.

Characters: Remus Lupin, Nymphadora Tonks, Andromeda Tonks, Molly Weasley, Ginny Weasley, Fleur Delacour

Words: ~1,000

Notes:

Yet another story inspired by something [livejournal.com profile] stereolightning said. Thank you for being a wonderful muse!

In my head, this takes place very shortly after "Easter Sun," i.e., after the start of Hogwarts' Easter break, but before the Weasley family has to go into hiding, during Deathly Hallows. An incongruous time for a happy, sunny scene, perhaps, but I really wanted it to be there.

Easter Sun

Hello there, LJ friends! Yesterday was my birthday, and I found – to my amusement, though perhaps not my surprise – that what I wanted most was the chance to write myself a one-shot. (I've been making myself hold back on the one-shots for a while, so I can focus on my long fic.) Here it is! This is unbetaed and was written fairly quickly, so I'd be honestly interested to hear any feedback about what does and doesn't work.

EASTER SUN

Summary: Even when everything's falling apart, sometimes a chat with an old friend can bring a little sunlight back into the world.

Characters: Ginny, Tonks

Words: ~2,800

Notes: I’ve wanted for a while to write a scene between Ginny and Tonks, but it took a bit to find a spot in the timeline that worked – I wanted it to be during Deathly Hallows, at a time when they could plausibly run into each other, but before the end-game events of the book started going down. As soon as I had the timeline pinned down, the rest of the conversation fell into place! This takes place at the very beginning of Easter break of DH.
