  1. Summary

    It’s just another 16th of March in the year 1976 at Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry; the weather has been mild if still rather nippy and sunset’s almost over; it’s Tuesday.

    “Sirius Black showed he was capable of murder at the age of sixteen,” he breathed. “You haven’t forgotten that, Headmaster? You haven’t forgotten that he once tried to kill me?”

    “My memory is as good as it ever was, Severus,” said Dumbledore quietly.
    -Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Chapter 21: Hermione's Secret

    (The one where a sixteen-year-old Severus Snape traipses into the hidden passage 'neath the Whomping Willow, and in this world, where one Lily J. Evans follows in behind him.)

  2. Summary

    There are more things than dreamt of in anyone's philosophy, and the consequences of a dropped box of cosmic tacks are more far-reaching than anything could possibly anticipate. The world's not ready, but then again, no-one and nothing ever really is, after all:

    Summary

    A month ago, Mabel Pines fell through a portal, into the multiverse, and into the care of her long-thought-to-be-lost Grunkle Ford. Many interdimensional scrapes later, it's time for her 13th birthday, the first (and, she hopes, the last) she'll spend away from Earth.

    As a treat, and a sort of belated apology gift for her brother for not being at home with him, she and Ford record another instalment of her 'Mabel's Guide to Life' series. Starring some 'chicken-y flute-y critters', the robots they're fighting a local insurgency against, and a creative application of archery combined with high explosives.

    Summary

    After a thousand or so resets, Sans was out of ideas. Out of hope. Out of a point to keep trying.

    It was always going to be the same, always going to end up with him back in Snowdin, with that damn thing posing as a human child. In an act of final desperation, the skeleton destroys the machine in his basement he's worked so hard to try and repair, hoping it might free him from this loop. Even if by death.

    ...It certainly does change things up at least.

    Summary

    Your soulmate's thoughts about you appear on your skin.

    Alastor was sure he didn't have one, not a single word showing up on him in his entire life. Angel didn't see any words on himself either, at least not until much later than he was told to expect them.

    Summary

    This is based on a prompt posted by fangirlingpuggle on Tumblr, go check that Tumblr out! To quote the prompt, "So what if in Zero Hour although the signal was blocked the message kept recording (non-scrambled) and everyone heard the entire confrontation?" This prompt really stuck with me for some reason, so I decided to give it a short try.

    Summary

    "No. We were brought here for a reason, Sammy." He grinned at her, a flash of white teeth. "We're here to wreak havoc."

    Sam was not on board with that idea. Absolutely not. They weren't here to exploit this new world. They weren't going to mess with the story just because they could. And she wasn't grinning right back at him.

    No.

    Of course not.

    They were here to make things better. They were here with the foreknowledge of what would happen so they could help people. She wasn't thinking about how much chaos they could create, or how someone like Jim being Harry Potter was going to destroy the entire plot. And she definitely wasn't thinking about the damage they could do to just about everything with magic at their disposal.

    She wasn't.

    "You're right," Sam leaned across the table so they were inches apart as she whispered, "Let's fuck shit up."
