    Summary

    In which a charming and dubiously-connected Frenchman hoves back into view; Peter gets to make several new entries in his Big Book of International Folly Contacts (Informal); Sahra displays an unexpected breadth of knowledge; Nightingale and Seawoll sneak around in the background trying not to make it obvious that they've started banging for England; and your author seriously starts to wonder if she's bitten off more than she can chew.

    AKA: 

    Le Retour de Laurent Martel!

    Summary

    Time and Destiny are a fickle thing.
    Do you know the feeling, when you know that you will regret it for the rest of your life if you don't do something?
    And when you can pinpoint years later the exact moment where you went wrong? If you had just reacted differently you would not be here, but somewhere else. somewhere better!
    Suche wistful thinking can drive you mad and give you a reason to better yourself. Peter Grant had several of this moment in his life. And as he lay dying in the ruins of the Pergola in Hampstead Heath, he contemplated all these moments. Would he act differently in those moments, if given the chance? hell yes. But those maybes and could have's, should have's are just dust and mist.
    But there are also those moments where you do the right thing even if it is not easy in that moment.
    Time and Destiny are fickle lovers, they have their favourites, their champions and they love to meddle.

    Peter Grant was the first English apprentice wizard in over seventy years. Again.

    Summary

    "Be honest, sir," I said, scrabbling around for the left flipper, "I look like a moron."

    "I’ve seen you look moronic before, Peter," Nightingale said, flicking the wheel right and sending us careening down a side street and me thudding against the left-hand door. "This does not even, as you put it, 'crack the top ten.'"

    Based in the 'Rivers of London' series and running in parallel with 'Lies Sleeping', this introduces a senior army officer and details his relationship with the Folly.

    Comments and (constructive) criticism are welcome.

    Summary

    In London, there is a very particular Bookshop. It doesn't look like much. It's small and old and rather dusty. But it's there all the same and sometimes, it's even open.

    Summary

    The deaths of Vernon and Petunia Dursley were, just as the rest of their lives had been, unfortunate, but ordinary and that was that – or so it seemed on the surface. Vernon’s death was to prove to be just a beginning……

    Set in 2019, pre-COVID, we join Harry Potter who is now 38 years old and has been heading the Auror service for the last twelve years. Peter Grant of the Metropolitan Police service has been promoted to a DS. This story which concludes the Vernon Chronicles, incorporates back story references to content of Serpentus Connexio set in 1991.

    Spoiler alerts/canon divergences

    Canon – HP: If there are conflicts with content from the dratted Epilogue & Harry Potter & The Cursed Child then so be it.

    Canon – RoL: It was originally drafted prior to the, then, predicted Autumn 2019 release of False Values (Ben Aaronovitch).

    Summary

    Spoilers: HP - This story's time line evolves in parallel with Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, interweaving elements of that plotline; believed to be broadly cannon compliant.

    RoL - Set approximately twenty years before Rivers of London, giving the younger Alexander Seawoll his first introduction to magic and The Folly. As a prequel there are inevitably spoilers to RoL or its companion works. There is some elasticity built into the RoL timeline.

    * * *
    It is the early summer of 1991 and a simple visit to Bristol Zoo by Harry Potter, an underage wizard as yet unaware of his powers, had coincided with the visit of a river god as yet unaware of his divinity.

    As outlined in Part 1, a boa constrictor was released and assisted on its way back to Brazil.

    Part 2 of the story begins back in Bristol, ten days after the snake’s escape occurred.

    Apologies for the prolonged delay to an update - part 2 now completed (March 2021).

    Warning - contains some unsavoury language.

    Summary

    In early 1945, Thomas Nightingale finds himself in a London hospital, having survived Ettersberg and recovering from the brink of death after being shot on his walk home. What seems like a feat of utter stupendousness to most proves to be an excruciating burden for Thomas himself. With most of the men he fought alongside lying dead, and his body and mind scarred by unspeakable trauma amassed throughout the war, how does one find the strength to allow oneself to live on?

    There are many lessons to learn, and many pieces to pick up after being broken apart.
    But in spite of how impossible it may seem, there will, eventually, be a path forward. Maybe not in the ways one would imagine, or even like.
    But, with time mending itself, a path there will be.

    Summary

    Peter is devastated when he finds out that Thomas Nightingale -- his boss, his friend, and the man he has a crush on -- is hiring out for sex. In Thomas's view, it is sensible -- better than getting attached to anyone he will simply lose or outlive.

    But Peter thinks someone as wonderful as Nightingale shouldn't keep himself locked away from getting attached. And if he wants a lover, he should at least consider Peter for the job, right?

    But trusting anyone with his heart is not easy for Thomas, no matter what he feels.

    Summary

    It’s not as if these things come with a manual, thinks Thomas with a touch of indignation. One just does one’s best. (Or-- Nightingale’s relationship with his body across the decades, particularly with regards to a certain Peter Grant.)

    Summary

    After a burglary at the Hogwarts Railways depot in Southall Harry Potter contacts his cousin with a sales opportunity, they meet and discover that before his death Vernon had made some unexpected connections.

    Set pre-COVID. It is a further instalment in the longer thread, The Vernon Chronicles. Lockdown demotivated me for finishing off my earlier works in progress so an apology for those delays. Updated 12th March 2021.

    Summary

    “Is there anything alcoholic in that drink?” he asked, eying the plastic cup she was holding in her hand.

    “Of course not.” The answer came too quickly to be truthful.

    “Somehow I don’t believe you”
