imagine a werewolf activist deciding that a biography really needs to be written about remus lupin. a tale of his lycanthropy and his contribution to the war and his life overall

imagine this person interviewing everyone who ever interacted with remus, including all his teachers and the students he taught and compiling a massive volume on his life

imagine it becoming a bestseller for a couple of years before disappearing off of shelves, before teddy is old enough to read

imagine harry sending him a parcel halfway through his first year with a note that just says “when i was your age, i had a lot of questions about my parents. i’m always happy to answer any you might have. but in the meantime, i thought you might enjoy this”

and it’s not the copy of the book, because teddy had already found that in the library and read it cover to cover (when he was in diagon alley next he was going to order his own). instead it’s a copy of every note the author had, transcripts of every interview. all the little things that wouldn’t make for much of a book, but that have teddy sitting up at 1am, reading under the covers and crying, because all these anecdotes make him almost feel like he actually knows his father.

HAPPY 50TH ANNIVERSARY STAR TREK  8 September 2016
Star Trek speaks to some basic human needs: that there is a tomorrow — it’s not all going to be over with a big flash and a bomb; that the human race is improving; that we have things to be proud of as humans. No, ancient astronauts did not build the pyramids — human beings built them, because they’re clever and they work hard. And Star Trek is about those things.”

Leverage: the next generation

  • Molly: Following a kidnapping as a young teen, she wanted to protect herself the way someone once protected her. What started with a simple self-defence course turned into a life-long affinity for violence and a successful run as an MMA fighter. Went off the grid and turned mercenary after her father’s death at the hands of a disgruntled employee left her destitute and unable to pay for college.
  • Trevor: Never forgot that time when the computer guy made him part of the team. Developed hacking and technology skills to rival his idol, along with a healthy problem with authority to match. It’s still the age of the geek, baby.
  • Widmark: After his step-father went to prison, life was a series of increasing challenges, but he never forgot his ability to make people believe in him. When the only job in show business he could get was as a singing waiter, he started to use his powers of persuasion and ability to reinvent himself for more self-serving purposes. And so, a con-artist was born.
  • Josie: Turns out landscaping is kind of boring when all you want to do is kick ass. Returning to a life of crime and becoming one of the world’s greatest thieves was much more her style.
  • Olivia: When fingered to take the fall for a crime she didn’t commit, CIA Agent Olivia Sterling leaves behind her career in espionage and cryptography - at least, as far as the agency is concerned - and disappears. She uses her contacts to assemble a motley crew of hustlers, felons, and thugs to track down and take out the corrupt organisation that set her up. But what started as revenge, a one-time gig, becomes so much more…

Bonus: 

  • Amy: Art appraisal expert. Also Olivia’s ex. They met while consulting with Interpol as a favor to Director Sterling. Years and a somewhat-amicable break up later, Amy gets pulled into the crew’s schemes which, after years of friendship with a certain legendary thief, is practically old hat. She shows up every now and then to help out with jobs and to flirt with Josie, which drives Olivia mad. (Whether she is more jealous of Amy or Josie is anyone’s guess).
