    Summary

    After a very turbulent start in the wizarding world, Harry finally enters his second Hogwarts year.
    Well. If Aunt Petunia will let him go after at least five attempts on his life within the last nine months, that is. There's also the fact to consider that he still has lawyers and Amelia Bones to sick on a boatload of people, Sirius to free, Pettigrew to frame and a diary to steal.

    Maybe staying in the muggle world would be easier. But Harry wouldn't be Harry if he didn't try to use the situation to correct some serious wrongs in the magical world and further his political agenda. At least this time around, he has some semi-competent adults (and paintings) at his back and a bunch of friends to support him in all the crazy endeavours his heart desires.

    Besides, there is Dudley's vendetta against one Gilderoy Lockhart to consider. Nobody could pass up on that sort of entertainment.

    Summary

    When Ethan was fourteen, his world went up in flames. When he was fourteen, he took his mother's gun and escaped the city with a wagon of other survivors who knew better than to betray their names or faces to the smiling people in uniforms who claimed to be aid workers. He learned early that help is not always help, and that people are rarely who they claim to be, or even who they think they are.

    He learned early not to let anyone else decide for him the difference between monsters willing and monsters made.

     
    (Or, Ethan Winters, instinctive parent, Raccoon City survivor, and That Guy who the Gods just cannot seem to let die, does not kill the severely abused, mentally ill child bioweapon he finds in Louisiana. Instead, he takes her, and runs. To say this changes things is an understatement.)

    Summary

    The ignition weighs heavy in his hands, and gripping it too hard makes his grey fingers crumble and crack, but he raises his arm, his head, looks at the Megamycete in all its bulbous and fungal glory. It tilts its head, almost curious, but his thumb crushes against the button anyway.
    For a second, everything is quiet and still and peaceful. Ethan has just long enough to close his eyes and hope this is the end. The ground quakes, the bombs ignite, and the world is engulfed.

    He dies (again).

     

    (Or the one in which Ethan dies for two minutes, adopts two mold children, and proceeds to time travel.)

    It was just a dream, John kept telling himself. He eagerly awaited Garcia's reply.

    Summary

    Humanity failed to stop the Night King and his legion of undead until it was too late. The displeased gods decide it should take a greater role in the fate of humanity and wind back to a time before the world fell apart. Jon Snow, the Prince Who Was Promised, and Jaime Lannister are sent back to prevent The War of the Five Kings and unite Westeros under a single banner to avoid a terrible fate. Even with the advantage of hindsight, things never go as planned.

    5/27/19 - I began writing this post S7. The events of S8 do not apply to this fic.
