Three short "fan fiction" stories that take place before, during, and at the end of the books we've all read how-many times. First a story about Professor McGonagall, then one about Charley Weasley and dragons, and the last is my own 'final chapter' to the last book (she didn't even give us a memorial service for our friends!)
