Happy Birthday, [personal profile] tetleythesecond!

At long last, here is the fic you commissioned from me in the [livejournal.com profile] help_japan auction. I've actually been sitting on this (in various stages of beta) for the last two months, having weighed up finishing the editing quickly and posting with the surprise of 'happy birthday, here's 15K of Amelia Bones'. I decided on the latter, and hopefully by now the fic is the best it can be. I hope it was worth the wait. (And also, since you don't list your birthday on your LJ, that I and the mutual friend I consulted on the matter got the date right, since this will be hilariously embarrassing if we didn't!)

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] an_fhanai and [livejournal.com profile] cranky__crocus for betaing this for me. The former wins all the awards for most dedicated beta ever (here's hoping that the posting of your baby's 'ink and paper twin' might magically trigger your long overdue labour) and to the latter, thank you for listening to me ramble on about this story and not bopping me over the head with your cane while we wandered around London. The Auror's Oath in the fic is adapted from the Oath of Allegiance taken by English police officers. I hope that my historical references are oblique enough to convince my recipient the historian; any mistakes on that front are my own.
