Sybella Brennan and Alistair Greyling were an item during their last year in Hogwarts. The beginning of their relationship hadn't been smooth. He was a school player; she was a new girl and a ginger. Through that last year at school they grew up, grew closer, faced Dementors, a halfdragon animagus, and then there was that incident with a mummy. Funny enough, these troubles weren't what broke them up - distance did. And Teddy Lupin.
Six years later, just as they've always dreamt, she's an Auror; he has become a healer. Investigating a case in Manchester, she gets injured - and whom does she see when she opens her eyes in the infirmary?
Set in the Potterverse, "Second Time Around" is a sequel to the fanfiction story "Thorin Durinson and the Conundrum of the Ginger Transfer Student" that can be found on my FF page: https://www.fanfiction.net/u/4633889/.
The initial story was written based on a reader's request to write a highschool AU for my usual protagonists, Thorin Oakenshield and my OC Wren. The sequel I'm posting here turned into a police procedural/romance/humour story; and seems fun enough to become an independent webserial.
