Sitting here with wet skin and Superman’s symbol sticking uncomfortably to his chest and Black Canary’s costume being no distraction at all, Superboy does not feel like something that can be helped.

silly: in defense of parvati patil (in memory of lavender brown)
The students of Dumbledore’s Army had many badges. A gold coin that called them first to lessons and then to war. Scar tissue that ran across the back of many of their hands. I must not tell lies.

Another: the sound of clacking footsteps on stone sent each and every one of them scattering, even years after. The only people bold enough to walk loudly were not safe.

Parvati went out on the anniversary of not the battle but the day she left Gryffindor Tower for the DA and the Room of Requirement. She bought a pair of heels, their red as loud as the sound they made on hard floors.

Dennis Creevey sent her Muggle sneakers for Christmas and she wore those when she needed to be stealthy (scuffed purple and white peeking out from beneath her robes) but she wore the heels on office days, interrogations, on nights out, because she wanted to be unafraid, because she wanted to be the scariest thing in the room.

“What? It’s totally an improvement. He’s not scowling, or dating bad guys, or slinking around in unsanitary places. Still a bit paranoid, but what can you do. At least he’s a lot easier to get along with when you can buy his affections with ear rubs.”

The Soldier came up with the plan in his spare time, though he never actually believed he’d put it into practice. Hydra’s reach seemed too complete – too powerful – to actually consider running. But he thought about it.

And then the man stopped fighting. And he said he knew him. And the Soldier felt…felt… He knew what he felt was important.

So, he ran.

the fatal plunge
Emma has hidden her face behind a curtain of unruly hair for now, but manages to tip it back on command--and Regina looks down at Emma’s chest and the heart she knows is beating there; wonders absently if any of her problems would be solved if she just plucked it out and kept it in her jewelry box upstairs--and looks at her with the kind of anguish that really and truly doesn’t befit a storybook savior.

“The curse. It didn't break right, so how do I fix it?”

[Part 1 of a 3-part post-curse AU that mostly ignores Season 2 developments; see the notes for details.]

Jack wakes up in the SGC to the news that his team is dead. If he weren't hearing the news from General Hammond he might not believe it--and even so it's not quite real until he sees the bodies. Once he does, he knows nothing is ever going to be the same again.

Sam wakes up in the SGC to the news that she is now the senior member of SG-1. Jack O'Neill is dead. For Sam and her team, nothing is ever going to be the same again.

SG-1 might be able to go on like this--Sam's going to keep her team together if it kills her--but a man who's lost his team is capable of anything, and Jack's about to do the unthinkable to make things right.

Chaos Is Come Again
Chaos has been cited as a response to the WIKTT Marriage Challenge, but is not: it's more a reaction to many of the rosier and more unrealistic stories that challenge produced. It was also written not long after the invasion of Iraq and institution of the Patriot Act -- not to mention during the prison abuse scandals of Spring 2004 -- and is chock full of political frustration, and examination of and commentary on those matters as well as more general Social issues such as Reproductive Rights and Marriage. Therefore, caveat lector: if you like Romance and more escapist fare, this is probably far too gritty for your taste.

Night-blooming Heartsease
This is a prequel to Transfigurations, begun as a birthday present to Resonant, at least two birthdays ago. Best laid plans, etc. This departs from canon when Transfigurations does, after PoA, and I've tried to avoid using anything from the later books. Massive thanks to Resonant, Cesca and particularly Mia, who fought for the story she believed in.

Then George raised his glass. "To Neville Longbottom," he said ... "And to Severus Snape, may he rest in whatever he prefers instead of peace." -- Transfigurations.

Too Much to Ask For
I think that he wound up in the middle of fucking nowhere, in Alaska or Montana or somewhere, as far away from people as he could manage to get, living out his life as quietly as he could and interacting with as few people as he could. And every morning he woke up, looked at himself in the mirror, and chanted, "I will not fuck up this timeline. I will not fuck up this timeline. I will not fuck up this timeline." But man, how brutal it would have been on him ... I mean, he arrived in 1929. You can't tell me he wasn't tempted to go and fix all the things that were about to go to hell...

As if the comment Obi-Wan had made to Luke about Anakin ‘dying’ when he became Darth Vader was literally true, a newly dead Anakin Skywalker wakes in a new world—given the appearance of his twenty-three year old self. However, the self-sacrifice that ended his life has also given Anakin an unexpected boon that he isn’t sure he can accept. Worse, it comes with conditions that might just be impossible to meet. A moment of redemption is one thing, but a full reformation another entirely. Set immediately after ROTJ.
