Notes:
Fox POV.
This line of thought requires a little explanation. Some time ago, I posed a question to Sandra
: What if Fox woke up in Utopia one morning? Kailen from Utopia (heretofore referred to as L'Hssein :)) lives and was brought up in a world totally different to Fox. Change the environment and the context in which a person grows up, and they'll be different; hence L'Hssein and Fox. So... Fox being Fox, and Utopia being a nasty place... what would happen if he suddenly woke up there? There's no explanation as to why or how, it just happens. I guess this mirrors a bunch of fics that Sandra wrote about this time where -- again, with no explanation -- L'Hssein is in the FH universe. However for him, he is finally treated with love and gentleness and respect by Collin. This is obviously the better deal in any kind of switch. As you will read. I've got to say, I've never written much of Utopia Collin... but he was fun. He's such a manipulative bastard, there's subtext to everything he says and does.

Notes:
Harley POV, This is AU, because it branches off from BMB canon from the time Mikhael finds out that an anonymous person kissed Harley at a party, and Harley failed to tell him about it, so Mik kicks him out. Some events have been changed to make it 'what if?', as well as some being added before a critical canon juncture. Apart from those little changes, it hopefully sticks to canon strips fairly well, and explains the situation regarding the Dean from Mik and Tybalt's past. This represented months of work, as I'm not terribly good at writing volume quickly. I hope you enjoy it!
Feedback: always welcome, as is constructive criticism. -- In my LJ I got some of the most wonderful, thoughtful, and personally satisfying (as an author) feedback I've ever gotten for something I've written. And I was lazy and I didn't always respond to it all. I'd like to take the opportunity to sincerely thank every single person that ever replied to this fic, it has been a personal favourite of mine for years, and to have had such an amazing response to it, still makes me very happy. I still go to the LJ pages listed below to read it because it makes me terribly thrilled and pleased.

Notes:
When I posted this on FFN not long ago, I got a reply that said the title seemed to be of a misnomer, because really, there is no 'rise' for him, at least, not in these 3 pieces. And I have to say, that was a conscious decision on my part. Because I don't believe that Sirius ever recovered from his fall from grace. Not really, anyway. The rise in the title and the rise in this fic is the turning point which begins the events that ultimately finally clear Sirius' name.
Unfortunately, he doesn't live to see it.
First HP fic. I liked how this one turned out, personally. My favourite chapter is the 2nd one, my favourite part being the aftermath of the explosion. I also didn't realise until ages after I wrote this, that each chapter ends with a sound; a crack, a laugh, a scream. That was completely accidental.

Notes: Supai always seemed as though once he got into the habit of being in a human body, he'd become quite the entrepreneur. Again, an obscure fic that I just love to bits. Even the revision was nothing more than a grammar-check, with no story details changed at all.
I should probably explain Supai, though. I wrote some original fic concerning Incan gods, that will hopefully be on here soon. Supai is the God of Death. He is a bit of a prick, yo.

Notes: Tybalt POV. This completes the trifecta of Tybalt Torture Fics (tm), I think :) Again, not sure how I came up with half the stuff to write this... it's so not me! That and I have a mild aversion to knives... how on earth did I ever write Tybalt torture fics? This probably gave me my aversion. I don't remember having it before 2001 :D As always Tybalt is confident in what he does, but is always left wanting. I'm so glad he went to Utopia, where he could shag gods, and BMB, where he could.. er.. be a bitch and get his nose broken. Whoops.

Notes: Tybalt POV. It references situations of the incredibly short-lived vampire fandom (and precursor to bmb) This Is Home (hence the crossover of some characters). You don't have to know about it to know what's going on here, as it really is all about Tybalt being the losing party yet again. Poor guy, I love him, but in my fic he never wins, not emotionally. Schadenfreude to the extreme.

Notes: The poem used is from one of iconic Melbourne artist Michael Leunig's books, and some of Spike and Angel's dialogue is paraphrased from my favourite song by the band *LYLAH*, called 'However Far Away'. We come to the end, finally! If I were writing this again now, I would've really toned down the sap. But I can't hate the series for it. Thank you to the people over the years who enjoyed this and sent me feedback, and massive thanks to Kita for betaing it.

Notes: I was always amused that during the writing of the series, I'd think of a thing that was just an incidental plot device at the time (like the book of verse) and in the next episode, suddenly it would become very important. Not by design, but by accident. Everything seemed to just fit together, ultimately.

Notes: Angel POV. Improv fic - glow, rain, bound, crave. Potentially a missing scene from Redefinition. Where did Angel get the cigarettes that he set Dru and Darla on fire with? I also think the quote at the beginning came from the 'Random Goth Quote Generator' that used to be on my website, Eternal Nightcap. Which is all shades of funny, but the sentiment fits the fic.
