    "Do you crave it, Tom?"

    Summary

    Eleven year old Harry didn't know how he knew--he didn't even know what it was he knew--but as he stood in Olivander's shop with Hagrid, he vowed that he would never tell a soul about the two words written on his wrist.

    Avada Kedavra.

    Summary

    When a little muggleborn girl walks up to the Sorting Hat, a number of purebloods (and a number of muggleborns, to be honest) wonder why they can't see her hair- why her head and neck are covered by a dark blue headscarf.

    In the ensuing months, they will learn the word hijab.

    ---

    Hermione Granger is faithful and studious. She hates breaking the rules and is a perfectionist.

    (She is also stupidly, irrevocably, wonderfully noble.)

    In this universe, as in most others, Hermione Granger carries these traits close to her heart, in her spine and in her head. She holds faith in things that do not have a ready explanation, believes in heroes despite all evidence otherwise.

    Summary

    Everyone knows that the seventh son of the seventh son has great magical abilities, that they are destined to become great.

    But a sixth son of a seventh son? That’s nothing special. There’s no guarantee of magic or heroics or special gifts. Just a little boy with lanky limbs and earnest eyes and a face splattered in generations of freckles, who grows up knowing that he’s nothing but a footnote to the glory of his older siblings.

    Ron Weasley grows up as a shadow. Every single one of his older siblings is extraordinary, in their own way- Bill, the exceptional linguist and cursebreaker; Charlie, the dragon tamer; Percy, head boy and prefect; the twins, inventors extraordinaire. His entire life, Ron is compared to them by everyone he knows and always falls just a little short, no matter how hard he tries.

    Is it any surprise that Ron wants more out of life, that when he arrives at Hogwarts, bastion of magical opportunity and the chance to change his fate, that he takes it?
