TWENTY YEARS ON


Summary: Twenty drabbles about twenty characters, and where they are twenty years on from the start of the Harry Potter series – in honour of the twentieth anniversary of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, first published on 26 June, 1997. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, HARRY POTTER!

Characters: Aberforth, Andromeda, Angelina, Arthur, Charlie, Dean, Draco, Fleur & Bill, George, Ginny, Hagrid, Harry, Hermione, Luna, Minerva, Molly, Neville, Percy, Ron, Teddy

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. :-)

TWENTY YEARS ON )

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.)


Note: This is the final chapter of a story that has occupied much of my heart and my brain for nearly six years, and I can't quite believe this day has come! Like the great J. K. Rowling herself, I feel compelled to thank you, the reader, who have stuck with these characters until the very end.

WAITING FOR THE SNOW

Summary: Four days. Victoire will be back from France in four days. Teddy can survive that...right?

Characters: Teddy, Victoire, Andromeda, Molly, Harry, one OC

Words: ~3,300

Notes: Here's the first one of the fics I wrote for this year's [livejournal.com profile] rt_morelove... It's Teddy/Victoire (and Teddy + all his wonderful extended family), with mentions of Remus and Tonks. FYI, I use my own headcanons for Teddy, so my stories don't necessarily align with JKR's latter-day Pottermore and/or Twitter revelations. I've also left the context here vague enough that it can be compatible with my Andromeda story "Saying Yes" (in which Teddy of course features prominently) if you want it to be!

This year at [livejournal.com profile] rt_morelove I found myself on this odd kick of trying to use as many of the prompts as I could (I got in 10 out of 30!), so this was written for:

21, Write a fic with 'If you are reading this' as your opening line
and also:
16, Teddy finds his parents' friends have very different tales to tell about them
26, the first snow
20 [picture of tranquil winter woods with sun setting through the trees]


I really wanted to take that sad sounding "If you are reading this" and turn it into something happy. :-)

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

SCENTS OF SORROW, SCENTS OF JOY

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!

Notes: Here's the next-to-last chapter of Part 1! I'll post the final chapter of Part 1 post in about two weeks, and at that point I'll let you know how it's looking in terms of when I'll be able to start posting Part 2 (which covers the HBP year).

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.)

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.


Chapter 16: The Calm before the Storm )

SIRIUS...BLACK (SIX DRABBLES)

Summary: Sirius Black, and the most important people in his life. Six moments.

Characters: Sirius, Remus, James, Peter, Lily, Harry, the Black family

Rating: T / PG-13 (no pairings, but mentions of violence, grief, death, all that canon stuff)

Words: 6 x 100

Notes: This is a little challenge I set myself – six drabbles (each 100 words precisely), each set five years apart, each starting with "Sirius" and ending with "Black" – for “The Day of the Black Dog,” a Sirius-centric event happening today over at the [livejournal.com profile] sirius_black community. Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] huldrejenta for pointing me to that event!

Each heading shows Sirius' age/the year, and the person who's the focus of the drabble.
