Advent is a time for hoping, for waiting, for believing; a time when gods descend to the earth, and the celestial is made temporal.
A shame then, that Grantaire believed in nothing but Enjolras.
Or, Grantaire lit four red candles, one each Sunday of Advent; each time, he was visited by a god: a god who performed miracles.

Laila (n): Arabic word for 'night'.
And this was a night unlike any other. Laila eclipsed all else, and that changed everything.

March 16th, 1980: Remus Lupin is waiting for the full moon, alone in the mountains of the Lake District.
(He's not dreaming of Sirius, or of martyrdom, and the anger's just the wolf clawing at him, impatient to be out.)
Hope is like a flickering candle. It can be snuffed out, but it can also be relit.
The Christmas Eve before Sirius' escape, an unlikely encounter with two young Aurors drags up memories of a time thought forgotten long ago...

It had sounded like a good idea at the time.

By now, the sight of blue lightning shooting through the streets of Shady Creek wasn't anything to write home about. Bram still remembered a few months prior when his streak of blue lightning was simply something a few internet conspirators blogged about. Sometimes, Bram thought those days were easier than seeing his own masked face on the news every day under a headline that read, "BLUE CHARGE SAVES THE DAY AGAIN".
He didn't pick the name, but it was starting to grow on him.

As he leaned over to pick up the coat hanger, an idea popped into his head. A wonderful, spectacular idea that would make his Mum smile -- he was sure of it.

It is 1998 and the nation is at war, fallen to the Dark Lord's control. Astoria Greengrass, as the daughter of Voldemort's own chief spy, must navigate rebel societies, Pureblood expectations, and Draco Malfoy - who, with the revelation of one small secret, could send her world crashing down.
In the end, war heroes are, too, only humans.

I don’t really know how I got to the point where I was entirely too drunk and alone in a Death Eater’s flat with him, but there it is.
