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?"
