Hi! I'm Branwen. This is my AP for my Sidenote: Full Story Harry Potter fanfic series. They are theoretically sort of in the same universe, but also there's been a bit of a timeline split. You can find my OF/other fandom fics at my other author page, abhorsen. If you're looking for my staff profile, you can find it at abhorsen_staff. :)

rulebreaking can generally be divided into three categories: some are nbd, some are dangerous, and some are outright illegal.
victoire and fred understand these distinctions, but they have never been particularly interested in them.

a series of Astoria-centric discussions between her brother and Draco Malfoy
Astoria is a traumatized and sometimes hostile mess. Draco is completely obsessed with their friendship and is very bad at hiding how much he really fucking likes her. She eventually notices. Then they start to take their clothes off.

It's not every day you find a golden snidget in a beautiful forest.
Scorpius isn't staring at Rose, and he's definitely not jealous of his cousin Noah for flirting with her.
