    Summary

    It's not that you made a mistake, it's how you handle it that's important.

    Of course, Heatwave didn't count on making the same mistake twice. He has got to stop falling from high places.

    Summary

    Some people say that the best way you can get back at someone is to be the best that you can be. I didn't understand that until Lila Rossi made good on her promise. Most of the class thought of me as nothing more than a jealous bully for not liking Lila. They all gushed about her great stories and fantastic connections as they planned their futures with Lila's help.
    I could have continued to try to prove Lila wrong, but I'd already seen how that worked. So, instead, I focused on me. I threw myself in my Ladybug duties and my fashion designs. Lila could take away my friends, but I wouldn't let her take away the things I loved.
    It worked out, you see. For while everyone Lila pretended to be shinning gold, I grew into a diamond.

    Summary

    Harry did not know this and would not know this until Mrs. Granger mentioned it casually over a Christmas dinner years and years later-- but she and Mr. Granger reported the Dursleys for child abuse and neglect, over and over.

    The reports got lost-- minds scrubbed down, papers vanished-- but they kept calling in reports. They considered kidnapping. They couldn't imagine why the wizarding world might want to keep their chosen one somewhere so toxic, why they might want to keep this underfed child and his messy hair with those people.

    "My mother left me a blood protection spell," said Harry, whose scar had not ached in years. He poked at his mashed potatoes under the focused attention of Mrs. Granger's stern little forehead wrinkle. "I had to live with family, blood family."

    "Then they should have made them treat you right," Mrs. Granger said, as though it was that simple.

    Mr. Granger gave Harry another helping of peas.

    Summary

    What if, when Petunia Dursley found a little boy on her front doorstep, she took him in? Not into the cupboard under the stairs, not into a twisted childhood of tarnished worth and neglect—what if she took him in?

    Petunia was jealous, selfish and vicious. We will not pretend she wasn’t. She looked at that boy on her doorstep and thought about her Dudders, barely a month older than this boy. She looked at his eyes and her stomach turned over and over. (Severus Snape saved Harry’s life for his eyes. Let’s have Petunia save it despite them).

    Let’s tell a story where Petunia Dursley found a baby boy on her doorstep and hated his eyes—she hated them. She took him in and fed him and changed him and got him his shots, and she hated his eyes up until the day she looked at the boy and saw her nephew, not her sister’s shadow. When Harry was two and Vernon Dursley bought Dudley a toy car and Harry a fast food meal with a toy with parts he could choke on Petunia packed her things and got a divorce.
