Author's Notes

How Remus Lupin Saved the World (although He Didn’t Mean to, He Swears) (Tonks Helped)

Crack!Fic beyond human comprehension, endurance or hope of forgiveness; wholesale slaughter of all manner of sacred canon and fanon cows; apologies in advance to everyone I may have offended, both real and imaginary. I’ll be turning in my “Remus/Tonks Fan” badge at the door when I leave.

I combined several folkloric explanations for the ignis fatuus phenomenon to create my version of the title “character,” although its fixed grin and one of its defense mechanisms are entirely of my own creation. Ylva Schnee does indeed mean “She-wolf/Snow,” and she is based in part on the character of the Snow Queen, from the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale of the same name, as alert readers may have noted from the name of her young victim. Like her originator, Tonks is a bit of a nomenclature enthusiast, at least for the purposes of this story, and perhaps this explains a few of her more ambiguous name-related word-plays. Thanks to my LJ beta katyhasclogs and my CM beta ArcaneWeapon for their helpful comments and corrections.

po tolo

A poem originally written for the "Tales of Dogs and Scoundrels" challenge at "Red and the Wolf" on LiveJournal

Prompts: Come (here) and
Water were your limbs, and the fire was her hair
And then the moonlight caught your eye and you rose through the air
Well, if you've seen true light, then this is my prayer
Will you call me when you get there
- Cosmia, by Joanna Newsom

Yes, there is a Dogon tribe in West Africa that has records showing an awareness of Sirius B, white dwarf companion star to Sirius A, that goes back three millenia -- much to the puzzlement of modern astronomers, since "po tolo" cannot be seen by the naked eye.

Understanding

Originally written for the Valentine's Day drabble challenge at "Flist-a-Fest" on LiveJournal, to the prompt "heart"

Second Chances

Originally written for the "Ron/Hermione Valentine's Day Gift Fic Exchange" at Checkmated. Thank you to gingerale for my prompts (and eventual title) "Flangst" and "Second Chances."

Movie!canon for the purposes of slipping in a “missing moment” that the frenetic pace and other elements of book!canon would not have allowed

There Is No Marriage in Heaven

Originally written for the March challenge at rt_challenge on LiveJournal, to the prompt

"Don't cry --the best gesture of my brain is less than your eyelids' flutter which says we are for each other:then laugh, leaning back in my arms for life's not a paragraph And death i think is no parenthesis" from e.e. cummings' "since feeling is first"

Set during DH and no picnic for my favorite couple. Adherence to the prompt is less questionable if one takes the entire poem into consideration. And when the author says, “snippets,” she’s not kidding, so brace yourself for brevity.
