Pairings: Rabastan Lestrange/Regulus Black
Word Count: 1,210
Warnings: *Implied canonical character death*.
Summary: Everyone copes with the war in their own way, but Regulus doesn’t seem to be coping at all. Rabastan doesn’t know what to do except for love him; whether it will be enough is a different matter altogether.
Author's Notes: I’m sorry I couldn’t give you a paring with Severus – it just refused to be written :/ So I genuinely hope you enjoy some Regulus instead.

Medium: Pencils + collage + digital editing
Warnings (Highlight to View):  *None*.
Summary:  In moments like these, they feel like home - like all their missing pieces fit together again.
Artist's Notes: I was very surprised to see that there aren't many fanarts (or fics!) out there featuring Firenze (with a delicious exception for the twice lovely "A Fish May Marry A Bird"). I have tried to express what the characters mean to me (their past, present, personality...), and drawing Firenze has been very fun!  It's the first time I make a fanart this complex, so I really hope you'll like it, dear sealcat! :)

― Anton Chekhov
Author's/Artist's Notes: I hope that this story pleases you, wwmrsweasleydo. When I finally found the right story to tell, it all seemed to fall into place. Thank you to L, my invaluable beta and dear friend, who never fails to improve anything she touches.

Together they attempt to solve the case that has haunted Moody for a decade. Together they face immense dangers as they land on the Unplottable Isle of Drear.

Warnings/Content Information (Highlight to View): *[None]*.
Summary: Garrick Ollivander is a lost soul after everyone leaves Muriel’s house to go fight in the Battle of Hogwarts. How will he fit back into a world where he feels responsible for handing Voldemort the ultimate deadly weapon?
Author's Notes: Beta’d by my dear friend B, who is, I am sure, regretting her rash offer to beta this story, since she got it over a weekend when both of her boys were sick. Thank you, my dear, you went above and beyond the call. Any remaining mistakes are my own bloody fault.
I hope this fic is to your liking synn, though I profusely apologize for the lack of pr0n. The two main characters had a long, plotty story to tell and by the time they were done, I ran out of both time and room (see the ridiculous word count). It is a bit angsty, though I don’t think it’s excessively so, but I think you will like the ending. :-)
