A “New” RaMverse one-shot: “A Spree with Albus”

Hi, all!

I have uploaded a “new” RaMverse one-shot here to my WordPress blog. I say that it’s “new” because it’s an out-take from Resolving a Misunderstanding, rather than an entirely new fic. If you’re reading A Long Vernal Season (which was just updated on Friday), you may want to read this little one-shot. (If you haven’t read RaM and are planning to, but have read Death’s Dominion and A Long Vernal Season, don’t worry about any RaM spoilers, since there are no spoilers in the out-take that you haven’t encountered already in the other fics.)

Since this is an out-take of Resolving a Misunderstanding, I’m not posting it to TPP — it’s being posted this way as a convenience for readers, particularly any who are reading A Long Vernal Season, who only want to read or reread the duel without having to hunt for it, etc.

Setting: Hogwarts, 24 August 1957.

Part of the interview includes an encounter with a dragon and a duel in front of a crowd of spectators. Part of the Resolving a Misunderstanding universe of fics.
Not DH-compliant.
