  • A Light at Dusk: Minerva needs a quiet, peaceful holiday to recuperate from a difficult term. Poppy kindly loans her the use of a small country cottage. T. (ADMM. Not a RaMverse fic.)

  • Malcolm’s Tale of Angus Óg: Albus asks Minerva for a story. She retells one of her brother Malcolm’s tales, a story of his encounter with Angus Óg one late night, and of how Angus returned a favour of Malcolm’s with one very special one of his own.

As I assume everyone who is able to read knows, Harry Potter and the Harry Potter universe and its characters belong entirely to J.K. Rowling and those with whom she has contracts assigning certain of her copyrights (e.g., Warner Bros.). This fanfiction is intended as personal entertainment and as a humble homage to JKR’s wonderful fictional universe. It is not intended to infringe on her copyright in any way, but is intended to promote the continued reading and enjoyment of her books. I make no profit from this and strongly doubt my story has the power to divert any profit from JKR.

Please do not take any of my stories as an infallible source for information about the real world, whether scientific, cultural, social, literary, veterinary, geographic or otherwise. I strive for verisimilitude, and borrow heavily from the real world, including from world history, literary history, science, nature, and world culture, but verisimilitude is different from strict accuracy. (Some folk I have found to be either very literal or rather naive.) Obviously, the Harry Potter magical universe comes from JKR’s series, though I’ve added people, places, things, and concepts of my own — that’s what makes it fanfiction! :-) I hope you enjoy the stories!
