Heh. A little campus fetch-questing with our alternates-of-agents OCs? Fun! I didn't comment on it during the mission in which they first appeared, but "Kupferbäcker" and "Platinfersken" are some top-notch surnames! I love the sound of them.

Is that cold for Arizona this time of year? Because here, that’d be pretty unusually warm.

Outside, the nights drop down into the 50s or 40s. I am being extra cheap this year and not running the heater, just bundling up with blankets and extra clothes to save money on the electric bill. It dropped to 65 overnight! I'm generally most comfortable in the 70s.
At least with the rain that's been coming down outside for hours, I can probably skip watering the trees around Small Mammals building tomorrow morning. That will save some time, and increase the odds of getting a full lunch break!

a cookie for you if you can answer correctly what the four's last names reference.

Kupfer is German for copper.
Platin is platinum in multiple languages.
Iron is self-explanatory.
Ór is from Latin aurum for gold.
Augh, feel like I could have figured that out if I had looked closer. by

That is clever, though!

P.S: Belated, but for those unfamiliar with Fáelán's home continuum, his kind of fairy is human-sized, with distinguishing features being pointed ears and (possibly) animal motifs. They're not the tiny, winged Pixie Hollow kind of fairy.

Oof. I wasn’t too interested in the badfic up to this point, but it really does go completely off the rails at this point, doesn’t it? A teacher trying to start open polyamory with his students, spiking a student’s drink with truth serum, and Ron and Hermione turning evil out of basically nowhere. I mean, I guess not evil per se, since they still want Voldemort dead, but very treacherous and clout-chasing, which still feels quite weird. Plus, it feels like this whole story just exists to set up the second, by introducing (sort of) what Gren Tres are. At least your agents have Billy out of the way, now! Also, I love the idea of the Hyacinth waiting for the mission to nearly be complete, and only then texting from a distance that it’s a two-parter.
No typos, but one error in canon details: Although the Gryffindor girls’ dormitory has an enchanted staircase that doesn’t allow boys to walk up, the boys’ dormitory has no such precaution. In universe, the founders of Hogwarts felt that girls are more trustworthy than boys, and didn’t feel that the precaution needed to be reciprocated on the boys’ staircase. Out of universe . . . considering some of Rowling’s other views on people of different biological sexes interacting, I guess she feels that girls need protection from unwelcome advances, but boys don’t? But I’m sure there’s nothing to unpack there . . .

Meanwhile, in the room of Dumbledores . . .
“I must say,” said a Dumbledore who looked like Sir Michael Gambon, “you have a stately presence about you when you speak. You make for a very calm, and steady presence.”
“For my part,” pronounced a Dumbledore who looked like Richard Harris, “I appreciate the energy and movement you bring. It is a sight to behold!”
“Hey, what about me, guys?” A Dumbledore who looked like Jude Law pushed his way through the crowd of Dumbledores. “What do you like about me?”
Gambon!Dumbledore and Harris!Dumbledore turned their heads away and put hands up to block Law!Dumbledore’s view of their eyes. They began to slip deeper into the crowd.
“Guys? Hey, guys! What about me? Guys?”

Thanks for reviewing! by

Yeah, Yuki is right. The sequel is worse... though it is at least shorter. And don't worry--it doesn't explain Gren Tres at all. In fact, I don't think it ever even comes up.
I've edited the dialogue on AO3.
The Dumbledore skit was absolutely hilarious. Thanks for that!
Man, that Dumbledore skit is hilarious by

and trust me, the sequel is even wackier. Thanks for reading and stay tuned.

It was, as you say, elegant.
And I may have forgotten who the equivalents were at first but nevermind I figured it out
Yuki, I sent you that Twisted Wonderland badfic, not sure if you’ve seen it.
Yep, seen and posted to Blogspot for posterity (nm) by
