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. :-)

CHAMBERS

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

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.)

BRIGHT-EYED AND BUSHY-TAILED

Summary: Hermione's never stopped dreaming of inter-house unity. But these days she does more than just dream.

Characters: Hermione Granger, Minerva McGonagall, forty bright-eyed and bushy-tailed first-year Hogwarts students

Words: ~1,200

Notes: For the prompts of: “Hermione Granger,” “Minerva McGonagall,” and “screaming” (from a ficlet activity at [livejournal.com profile] rs_games, though I joined the party too late for this to be officially part of that).
This expands on a bit of my own headcanon from my story “Chambers,” but you don’t have to have read that to read this!

FEELS LIKE HOME

Summary: Sitting together on her dilapidated sofa over a cup of cocoa seemed like such a cosy, homey sort of thing to do. And Harry, to Hermione, always felt like home.

Characters: Hermione, Harry

Words: ~1,400

Notes: …And we’re back to my usual mode. As in, here, have a character-driven one-shot in which two people talk and reflect about things! :-)

Inspired by conversations with [livejournal.com profile] stereolightning about Hermione as a character, and about potential Hermione-and-Harry interactions. This is written to stand alone, but also draws on some of my headcanon established in "Chambers" (takes place about a year before this story) and "Saying Yes" (takes place a number of years after).
