    Summary

    His nose itches with the long dead scents of incense, saltwater, and spice but he doesn’t look back until -

    A choked, “Kakashi?”

    He closes his uncovered eye, takes a deep breath, and turns.

    Three ghosts stare back.

    -

    In this world, Team Minato returns as heroes.

    (This time, there was no disgraced Hatake runt carrying the most prized doujutsu of the famed Uchiha clan, no questions of theft or accusations of treason, no doubts of Minato’s abilities as a teacher let alone Hokage, no back-stabbing comrade killers-

    -no Kakashi.)

    Summary

    The last thing Draco wanted was to show up at Harry Potter's door, cursed blind and holding a boxful of his friends Transfigured into snakes, but here he was.

    Between breaking the curse, adjusting to life without sight, and teaching his Defence Against the Dark Arts classes, Draco's got his hands full. Being forced to live with Harry Potter might just be the death of him.

    This is a story about the bonds of friendship, fairy tale endings, and learning to ask for help (even from Gryffindors).

    Summary

    At first Harry wonders if they’ve managed to destroy his vaults and are trying to tell him in the most oblique way possible. But when he turns the page he realises they’ve found a vault. A vault in the name of Lily and James Potter.

    The parchment trembles a little in Harry’s hand. He takes another gulp of wine.

    Harry Potter left Britain after the war and didn’t look back. Ten years later, when Gringotts discovers a vault containing his parents’ belongings—including their badly spell-damaged wedding rings—he’s forced to face up to friends and family who’ve grown in ways he could never imagine, a wizarding London rebuilt beyond his expectations, and the anniversary of the Battle of Hogwarts. And if that wasn’t enough, there’s the entirely unforeseen problem of Draco Malfoy.

    Featuring pureblood wizarding traditions, ancestral magic, open mic nights, marriage equality, a diner in Brooklyn, and the return of Fleamont Potter.

    Summary

    “What’s your name? I can’t keep calling you Balto.”

    “What’s yours?”

    “Stiles.”

    Derek raises an eyebrow. That isn’t his real name. There’s no way. But now he thinks about it, he has a vague memory of someone, probably Uncle Peter, telling him that with the fae, names have power. “I’m Miguel,” he says.

    “Lie.”

    “Are you trying to tell me your real name is Stiles?”

    Stiles runs his tongue across his teeth and considers Derek carefully. “Fair enough,” he says, “Miguel it is.”

    Grabbing his groceries and pocketing the change, Derek turns to leave; he’s nearly at the door when Stiles calls out, “By the way, Miguel, if you’re interested, it’s two for one on bags of kibble at the pet store down the street.”

    Derek doesn’t look back, doesn’t hesitate, just raises a hand and flips him off on the way out.
