STRAY is now available on An Archive of Our Own in its “intended” format as the first novella of three. (For various reasons, I decided that formatting the novella as several short chapters would work better for the Petulant Poetess archive, so it will look different there — but the content will be the same.)
Summary: When Madam Hooch’s heart goes out to a stray, what will it mean for her — and for Hogwarts?
Canon-compliant (as far as possible!) and set during The Prisoner of Azkaban.
Characters: Rolanda Hooch, Severus Snape, Sirius Black, Poppy Pomfrey, Albus Dumbledore, and other canon characters (including Minerva McGonagall, Rubeus Hagrid, Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, and Crookshanks).
Rating: Unrated on AO3; most content T-rated.

Characters: James Potter, Sirius Black, Peter Pettigrew, Remus Lupin, Severus Snape, Edward Burton.
