  1. Summary

    Notes
    A while back, I started writing short snippets of fic that I called, Saturday Morning Serials. I wrote them on Sundays and used them as a way to work through ideas or issues in my head. I always thought that Hermione deserved a second life after Hogwarts that didn’t involve Harry, Ron, the Ministry, or any of the obligations to which she’d tied herself during her childhood. I thought she deserved a place where she could thrive and be challenged, and struggle in ways that every young person deserves, in ways where they are the sole hero of their own story and not the sidekick in someone else’s. The only place that I could think of in fandom that remotely fit the bill or shall I say Brakebills, was the universe of the Magicians series. It was perfect. This was an exceedingly accessible place to which she could transition where she was a stranger and her skill was not foreign. In fact, she would be easily matched by other magicians who studied and worked as hard as she did, if not harder. For me, a studious brown girl with frizzy hair who never fit in no matter how hard I tried, Brakebills was the place Hermione was always meant to be.

  2. Summary

    Kara and Alex have always been fairly codependent throughout the canonical Supergirl tv series. Kara's appetite is often referenced as a result of her Kryptonian biology interacting with exposure to "Earth's yellow sun". I recently considered that maybe Kara's appetite might in part be a psychosomatic response to the trauma she suffered as a child. There seem to be many inconsistencies between Kara and Kal-El and I began to wonder if their upbringing may have more to do with that than their biology. It would make sense since Kal-El has no experience of trauma. He doesn't remember Krypton or his trip to Earth. Kara remembers Krypton's destruction and awoke periodically while trapped in the phantom zone. Because of this, I thought she may have suffered from Attachment Disorder as a child. Untreated, several of the choices she's made as an adult seem to reflect symptoms of Adult Attachment Disorder. What if, largely by serendipity, Kara and Alex stumbled upon an effective therapeutic intervention in the form of adult nursing?

    Summary

    Finally fed up with the useless advice of healers, Hermione is sure she'll never be able to remove the scar left on her arm by Bellatrix's knife. In a last act of desperation, she seeks out Narcissa Malfoy, now a veritable recluse after the war, in the hopes that she might know something… anything that could help. However, when Hermione finds herself reading Bellatrix’s journals, working for Draco, and growing closer to the mysterious lady of the house, she learns that nothing in Malfoy Manor is as simple as it appears.

    Summary

    Just days after Emma announces her engagement, Regina is found in her vault without any memory of the past five seasons. The newly returned Mayor Mills is caustic, scheming, unnerved by her own future, and loves only Henry– and she might see more clearly than anyone around her.

    Then again, that might not be for the best.

    Summary

    Under the extravagant hair and harsh makeup, it’s still Regina’s eyes gazing back at hers. There’s something hard and malicious in them, but the Queen smiles and Emma shivers at the dark melancholy beneath the surface. “She wasted every chance we had with you,” the Queen breathes. “And you would still choose her?”

    After 5b, Emma and Regina find themselves struggling with an unpredictable Evil Queen who's just as likely to kill as she is to kiss, to destroy as she is to help, and to hate as she is to love.

    Summary

    It had been a simple dare, one that had made sense when Emma had been two drinks away from passing out. She doesn’t know what exactly Ruby had done to bind it– is still very new to magic as a real thing, flowing through Storybrooke– but it’s now a dare she can’t back off on.

    Ruby had laid out the rules, more and more smug as she had gone on. “So if Regina wears a red dress, you have to pick a fight with her.” Emma hadn’t questioned that one. “But if she wears blue, you have to give her a compliment. And if she wears grey, you gotta call her Your Majesty.” She’d been a little drunk, too, enough that she’d gotten bold. “Light colors mean you have to tell her whatever’s on your mind. Whatever.” Her eyes had narrowed in ominous delight. “And for black…for black, you have to flirt with her.”

    Summary

    “I’m sure there’s people in Storybrooke who would jump at the chance of fucking you, Regina.” Regina makes a face, as if Emma’s words are distasteful, and sure they are but Emma’s out of herself, and if her vocabulary is vulgar while sober, then she doesn’t know what the hell Regina expects when she’s not. “Try Tinder.”

    “Emma… Storybrooke is the size of a shoebox. I know every person in this town and believe me, none of them are viable options.”

    “Why?”

    “Because… We have history.”

    Emma scoffs.

    “So what? We have history and I would fuck you.”

    Or, Emma would swear Regina is trying to kill her with just how much she's teasing her. (The thing is, Emma will most definitely let her).
