A/N 1 (written before starting): I have to say, I’m pretty damn blown over by the response that Grease & Lighting got. I wasn’t prepared for it to do better than my 300k HGSS fic that I spent two years on and given that I began posting it while also stepping away from my discord server—which had seen me through publishing both of my fics—it’s been a Godsend to have that support. With that in mind, I dedicate this sequel to everyone who read G&L, who liked it, who faved it, who bookmarked it, who left reviews, and comments and kudos. They’ve really cheered me up and onward during a bit of a rough time, and I’m grateful for all of you.

I wish to thank my husband for patiently answering all of my silly questions about cars and rock history, who stays up late beta reading my fic for me and texting me his observations and corrections when he ought to be practicing for his band, working on his own YouTube guitar videos, or fixing the vacuum lines in his truck. You’re every woman’s dream.

And an enormous thank you to JK Rowling, without whom these stories would be impossible. I’m not sure what my life would have been like without her characters and world, but I know I’d have been poorer for their absence.

A/N 2 (written after finishing the Epilogue): Well... it’s been a year and a few months since I finished posting G&L, and in the span of 15-16 months I managed to write a modest 420k words for you all. I sincerely hope you guys like what I’ve put together. I have hopes to add illustrations in due time, but I’ll admit that I feared focusing on drawing would detract from my impetus to write, therefore I abstained until I finished. Plans for a podfic produced by myself and my husband (of both the original and this fic) are forthcoming but a bit on the backburner for reasons.

A lot in my life has changed in that time, including all nine months of a pregnancy. As I type this I’m 38-39 weeks in, and my hope/plan is to post this first chapter for you the day my second child is born while she sleeps. It really put the pressure on me to finish in time, let me tell you! I cannot thank you all enough for all of your comments/reviews/faves/bookmarks/etc. on G&L, for without them I’m not sure I would have had the inspiration to keep writing.

My plan for updates is once a week until the fic is posted in full, and I humbly ask for your feedback because that feeds my soul, particularly while post-partum, although by no means are you obligated.
