Expect shameless restructuring and abuse of myths and legends to suit my purposes.
I’m aware that someone with a noble title would be addressed by their title and not their surname. Assume it works differently in the wizarding world.
Borrowing the name “dverger” from Keira Marcos because I hate the term “goblin.” This story when originally written in April 2018 had goblins as dwarrow misnamed by wizards, so the story concept hasn’t changed, just the label used.
There were originally three novels plotted for this verse, but I don’t see myself ever returning in a big way to the HP fandom, so the epilogue was an attempt to tie up a lot of the loose ends and bring some closure to the story. There will not be a sequel to this story.
