With everything in life, there is a season for change.
Maria Wynstone is mostly content living a quiet life at her family's country estate ever since an incident during a previous Season left her reputation tarnished. But as the daughter of a gentleman farmer, a few bad seasons can make all the difference to one's circumstances. Reluctant to return to town, Maria discovers that she has little choice when she receives a letter from her brother’s commanding officer that he has been discharged from naval service. Maria must embark on a journey to London, should she wish to not be a burden to her family and to also uncover the truth about what happened to her middle brother, Gerry.
Arthur Colbourne does not mind the law per se, but an embarrassing bumble in court rattles his confidence to the point where he questions all he's ever worked for. However, when his uncle unexpectedly dies and he inherits his estate, Arthur finds himself thrust into a role that he is quite underprepared for, particularly when he meets the daughter of his new neighbour, Miss Maria Wynstone.
Drawn to her quiet charms and wit, Arthur finds himself feeling things he's never experienced before. And when Maria receives startling news about her brother, Arthur cannot help but offer his services to help her find the truth of what happened to him. As the hunt for Gerry reaches a critical turning point, both Maria and Arthur are confronted not only for their growing feelings for one another, but also ghosts from their pasts. They must then find a way to move beyond their individual failings, should they want to succeed together.

When Evanora Perrot accepted the position of Hogwarts Head Librarian she expected enchanted books, student study groups, manuscript refurbishment, late nights pouring over the catalog, and only leaving the library to watch quidditch games and filch food from the kitchens.
She did not bargin for Albus Potter and his many exploding cauldrons.

Tiramisu is the name of an arctic fox who was brought to medieval England by an Italian trader and left at an abbey in Cambridgeshire to be the pet of two young boys who had been placed in the abbey by their families. Set in the disastrous Fourteenth Century, this is the story of one of those boys, Martin, who had to endure what no fifteen-year-old should have to face--calamity. loss, grief--but also a story of friendship, survival, spirituality, and ultimately a connection to canon.
Written for the Bookshelf Challenge of Bex (Beyond the Rain). The random quote prompt, "I started to step out of my clothes as Tom leaned against the doorframe," is from the book Queenie by Candice Carty-Williams. My eternal thanks to Bex for giving me the impetus to write this one-shot that grew into a novel.

"Someone learns something unexpected about his ancestry and acts upon it." That was the challenge for a 700-word HP drabble that grew from a drabble to an 8,000-word story to a 120-page screenplay, evolving along the way from Draco-Astoria-Scorpius Malfoy to Denis-Aurelie-Silvestre Paridelle, but the HP clues are still there, discernible to a knowledgeable eye. Can you spot them?
The original drabble ended at Plot Point One, where Scorpius/Silvestre says, "If you don't open them, then when I'm an old man and you're dead, I will do it. So we might as well look at them now. Don't you want to know?"
vic and gallagher definitely didn't wait until the wedding, but the engagement thing is apparently kind of a turn on.
There is freedom in knowing what’s in your heart. There is comfort in knowing you are not alone.

Elara Avery was entering her seventh year of Hogwarts with a broken engagement to a dangerous man, the threat of expulsion held over her head by her extortionist Headmaster, and the expectation that she either be engaged or prepared to join the "family business" by Christmas. All of this because of one fateful night where that idiotic fourth year helped the Dark Lord rise again and inadvertently ruined all of Elara's most well laid plans. With the help of friends new and old, a turncoat potions professor, and a certain devious redhead she might just be able to graduate keeping everyone satisfied...
Or she might just die trying.
