27 Falcon without Bells a bit of a compromise between the book With Fire and the Sword and the film. I wanted to give Jurko a happy ever after and I never could see him having that with Helena, who is a nice girl but wouldn't give him room. Rated for the general violence. After Jurko has left, released by Jan, he is followed by someone who thinks he looks dangerous enough to be safe ...

He and Hermione make a new friend, and Snape recognises the lack of self-worth of the abused. A Snape-mentor fic with a 60 foot twist. This has four years/chapters, and it's a good place to stop.

12Lady Molly Married Sequel to Baroness Orczy's 'Lady Molly of Scotland Yard' taking the same braided novel approach of the original. Lady Molly has left Scotland Yard; she might expect a quiet married life, but her skills are too well known. I own nothing but effrontery

79 Petunia's Atonement The Dark Lord won; and it's all thanks to the Dursleys. However Petunia has a second chance to do better by her sister, and to change the future. Oneshot.

70 left on the doorstep like a milk bottle remembering that the milkman gets to the doorstep at about 4 am, is any decent man going to just leave a baby on a doorstep? Another reason why wizards might do better to study muggles more closely rather than just despising them.
