The year is 1997, and an order has gone out from the Ministry of Magic that all students between the ages of eleven and seventeen who were formerly taught at home must now present themselves for attendance at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
Howard Sutton, the seventeen-year-old son of sheep crofters on the Isle of Skye, who formerly received his magical education at home, arrives at Hogwarts at the beginning of what will be the calamitous school year of 1997-1998. The Sorting Hat says, "It's not a matter of which House you need, but of which House needs you." What can a crofter do for Hogwarts?

"I like it when he shouts my name."
But it wasn't always that way. And he wasn't always the only one who ever said her name in a way she liked. Nor would he always be the only one.
The week after Lan Xichen turns twenty-three, he is told that the elders have decided it is time: the matchmaker has been called.
Sect Leader Lan must find a wife.
It will, he is assured, simply be a process of him dictating his perfect woman to the matchmaker who will find the girl and make suitable introductions. Zewu-jun is, after all, the First Jade of Lan; who would refuse him?
This is less comforting than it's supposed to be because Lan Xichen is left with the awkward, mortifying ordeal of considering the prospect of a wife, and all the books on the subject are, well, unhelpful for a man of his temperament.
It is his greatest challenge yet, so, naturally, he ropes all his brothers into it - willing, unwilling, unwitting.
(Shufu is simply grateful there are no more Explanations required. Twice was twice more than enough.)

But as she navigates the politics surrounding Wizarding Society's London Social, Cedrella finds herself inconveniently bumping into Septimus Weasley, a flirtatious fortune hunter with a family secret. While her parents push her to marry another, she slowly discovers she has more in common with Septimus than she ever dreamed possible.

There are Jiangshi corpses on the streets, a statue dancing through the parks, and rumours of Yin Iron and corruption slipping in with the mists from the sea.
These things are normal.
There is a toddler found alone on a boat and burning, a strange man with a red ribbon sits in Lan Wangji's seat, and the Little Apple Twist mocktail now has vodka.
These things are not.
Or, Wei Wuxian returns to Hong Kong and really, everything spirals out of control from there.

With Albus Dumbledore dead, Severus Snape assumes the unwanted role of Headmaster, charged with bringing the students of Hogwarts through the rest of the war against Voldemort somehow intact. Severus’s heart tears itself in two, trying to hold on to Miranda Rose, his reckless American fiancée, while still following Albus’s orders from beyond the grave.
Unfortunately, the more he reveals to Miranda, the less she trusts him. And the harder he clings to the loyalties of the past, the faster his future disappears.
