IF YOU'VE GOT A LANTERN HOLD IT HIGH

Summary: Three years after the war, a stranger arrives at Hogwarts with a letter addressed to Minerva McGonagall by the familiar hand of an old friend. Before the summer is through, the contents of the letter will bring together several lives that might otherwise never have touched.

Characters: Minerva McGonagall, Andromeda Black Tonks, original characters (Serena and Joy from "Raise Your Lantern High"), Teddy Lupin, briefly Hagrid, offscreen but alluded to often: Remus Lupin and Nymphadora Tonks

Words: 
12,900 / Chapters: 4

Notes:

Set a few years after “Raise Your Lantern High” (not a sequel, since that story is complete – more of a “bonus extra”!) but it also works as a standalone if you haven’t read that story.

“Raise Your Lantern High” followed Remus and Tonks throughout HBP; the two original characters in this story, Serena and her daughter Joy (also known by her werewolf name, River), are characters Remus got to know during his time living with a werewolf pack that year. I’ll include some more background at the bottom of chapter 1, if you’d like to know more, but again, I don’t think you’ll be confused if you just dive in!

(Note for those coming here from “Raise Your Lantern High”: the character was known as Joy in that story, because it was from Remus’ perspective and he thought in human names; here you’ll see her as River, because it’s from her own perspective. And yet I’ve used Serena’s human name here, because she’s among humans and thus using her human name …And yes, I do realise I made this complicated for myself when I created the construct of werewolf vs. human names!)

My great thanks to [personal profile] gilpin25 who provided such a thoughtful beta-read of this story. (And Brit-picking, too!) I appreciate it so much.

Chapter One: A Visitor at Hogwarts )

LITTLE AMUSEMENTS, OR HOW ANTHEA GOT HER NAME


Fandom: 
BBC Sherlock

Summary:

She made up secret personas each day to keep from going mad with boredom at her job. It amused her, and it didn’t matter since no one noticed anyway.

Until Mycroft Holmes noticed.

Characters: Anthea, Mycroft, original character

Words: 3,500

Notes: This is for [personal profile] indybaggins, who once said "I'd be curious to see how you portray Anthea," so ( . . . a little bit later . . . ) here she is.

I suppose I should further note – though it’s not hugely relevant for this particular story – that as a whole I’m pretty much ignoring the existence of S4 . . . so I’m writing the characters as they were around S1/S2-era or so. :-)

Thank you to [personal profile] pipmer1 for betareading!

Note: This was timing too good to be missed: This chapter takes place around and during Beltane, the Celtic celebration of spring. And out here in the real world, too, TODAY is Beltane. (Well, not in the UK anymore – but here in the US it's still May 1 for another hour or two.) Happy northern hemisphere/pagan/Celtic spring, everyone! I was out celebrating today, as part of a long-standing family tradition, despite the pouring rain.

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. :-)
