    Summary

    For most of college, Grantaire was hopeless over Enjolras, and everyone but Enjolras knew it. Now he’s worked to get over his crush, and for the most part, he's fine. When Combeferre asks him to choreograph and dance in the Midsummer Night’s Dream-inspired opera he composed as his senior thesis, Grantaire says yes, even though he’s cast opposite Enjolras, as Puck to his Oberon. The chance to dance is worth the potential problems, and he'll have his friends as a buffer.

    He doesn't count on long hours of practicing and choreographing and talking together, while they try to figure each other and their futures out. As much as he tries to avoid it, it seems inevitable that he falls for Enjolras again, and this time it isn't a crush.

    Summary

    For The Quarantine Les Mis Big Bang!
    ABC Radio was not what you’d call popular. That word wouldn’t even make it onto a Top Ten Descriptors list. In fact, out of three campus radio stations, ABC had by far the least listenership. But, Grantaire thinks, that was what gave it its charm.

    Plus, if they had more people listening, they probably wouldn’t be allowed to be nearly as weird. And if there was one thing ABC Radio definitely would be called— it was weird.

    Summary

    When Petunia Dursley refused to take Harry in she forfeited his birthright protection, so Dumbledore took the baby to the safest place he knew: Hogwarts.

    The applicable staff (mostly just… not Snape) took Harry in on a rotating schedule as he grew from baby to toddler to child. They traded extra credit for babysitting among the older students, and Harry grew up knowing a few dozen different laps that were safe and warm to nap in.

    This was a Harry who grew up among books, among old transient walls and learned professors. They gave Binns night duty sometimes, and let him talk young Harry to sleep. This was a Harry whose world changed, on principle, daily. The stairs moved. The walls became doors. You had to keep your eyes open–you had to pay attention. So he did.

    He grew up in a school. Knowledge was power, but knowledge was also joy. This was his sanctuary. There was magic in his world from birth.

    Summary

    There is an eye watching over us, listeners. It hangs above in the moonless sky—yes i know, listeners, that thing up there, that looks like the moon, but that is not the moon—and the eye does not blink. It does not look outward,, no, this is the eye that views our interior, our dreams, the deep cracks and crevices of our souls where we hide our darkest fears. It watches. And it records.
    And it’s British! Oh, it’s great to see that the Night Vale Tourism Board initiatives are working and that visitors aren’t being put off by our, ahem, TOTALLY NORMAL mortality rate.

    But anyway. To our new friend: Welcome… to Night Vale.

    (Or: fear, love, threats, and small towns where the apocalypse is the fixed point around which life turns)

    (Or: Jon takes a detour while in America)
