Back to School
It's the first day of school for my kids.
Harry Potter, Ginny/Luna: The year after Deathly Hallows is Ginny & Luna's 7th year at Hogwarts. They & Neville were war heroes; they have trouble getting any studying done with all the requests for authographs and such. (Plus Ginny's dealing with the death of a brother, and Luna's father is, ummm... well, Luna has some family issues too.) Hounded by groupies, the two girls wind up seeking some quiet time in the Room of Requirement. It takes them a while to figure out why it keeps giving them a big bed and a dresser full of interesting toys.
Harry Potter, young James/Neville: pre-Epilogue; James has a rough time being the son of the great war hero--maybe rougher than Harry did, 'cos Ginny plays up to the celebrity status. James feels lonely and overwhelmed. He seeks comfort with the one professor who's also a friend of the family, who understand what it means to have every minor setback feel like an utter catastrophe. Neville is perhaps a bit too supportive, too comforting. (I'm sure he's wracked with guilt for feeling attracted to his good friends' son. Oh, the angst. James will have to kiss him & make him feel better.)
Firefly, Mal/Simon: River needs to go to flight school to take over for Wash. Mal's trained her all he can, but she could really use real training about flight theory and the schematics of various ships. They forge an identity for her so she can attend a 6-week course on a not-too-far from core planet. The long stayover allows Inara to establish clients, everyone else to relax & resupply. Mal & Simon stay in a cheap hotel room a few blocks from the school, so they're close in case of any problems. Close quarters, worries, River dropping weird hints at the two of them... by about day 5, they can't keep their hands off each other anymore.
M.A.S.H., Hawkeye/Father Mulcahey H/C: Father Mulcahey starts up a school for Korean kids, to teach them some basic English phrases and first aid/simple health care practices. The class includes six boys and a 10-year-old girl, whom most of the boys want to kick out ('cos "girls shouldn't learn"). The girl gets attacked by the boys; Hawkeye has to patch her up on the spot with Mulcahey as an assistant. Mulcahey is overwhelmed by their casual cruelty, and Hawkeye winds up holding him and comforting him through the stress. (Much penance later.)
