“Harry — I think I’ve just understood something! I’ve got to go to the library!”
And she sprinted away, up the stairs.
“What does she understand?” said Harry distractedly, still looking around, trying to tell where the voice had come from.
“Loads more than I do,” said Ron, shaking his head.
“But why’s she got to go to the library?”
“Because that’s what Hermione does,” said Ron, shrugging. “When in doubt, go to the library.”

I’ve successfully sat down to write SIXTY days in a row! Slowly but surely writing my novel. The Scrivener App on my iPad makes such a difference, and the word tracker is both helpful and aesthetically pleasing.

Combeferre and Feuilly and a witches/wizards AU please?

“‘Become a wizard,’ they say,” Combeferre growled, trying and failing to extract his foot from a pothole filled with… something. “'Learn the true, unedited history of the mankind,’ they say. 'Advance the human race by understanding and accepting it in it’s darkest form.’ They do not say 'And by the way, learning to understand humanity is a lot smellier than you might expect and is probably going to result in a very untriumphant death by cholera.’”

“Oh come now, surely you are not saying that you don’t find our current preoccupation to be most edifying,” Feuilly answered, genuinely surprised, even as he had to admit that the idea of braving the rancid smell and darkness of Parisian sewer system during a hot summer day had never been high in his list of priorities.

Combeferre glared balefully into the impenetrable darkness that was determined to become the sole owner of his left shoe. “I do no like getting my feet wet.”

“That’s the problem. We let people say stuff, and they say it so much that it becomes okay to them and normal for us. What’s the point of having a voice if you’re gonna be silent in those moments you shouldn’t be?”

“Why was it, she asked herself, that ‘animals can sometimes subdue their predatory ways in only a few months, while humans, despite centuries of refinement, can quickly grow more savage than any beast.”
