When he kisses her, she feels as though she could crumble, but the truth of the matter is that he is not her Perseus; perhaps there is no Perseus in this telling of the story.
The First Wizarding War is raging around her, and Andromeda Black has turned traitor.

Cœur du lion - mon cœur - mon frère, je suis noyé.
The line between the living and the dead is stretched thin, fragile and breakable like glass; there are ghosts in the stars, ghosts in his head, and everything fades with the dawn.
They say Regulus is dead. They say Lord Voldemort is fled, a wraith wrapped in smoke.
They say, they say - but what do normal people know?

Chloe is content with her quiet life amid her Muggle parents' fear of magic. But after suffering a brutal attack at the hands of would-be Death Eaters, Chloe is thrust into a world both exhilarating and terrifying. Marlene McKinnon and her friends, the Marauders, are rule-breakers. They leave laughter and chaos in their wake. They are everything that Chloe thought she never wanted, least of all Sirius Black: cavalier, reckless and so strangely alluring. As the years pass, Chloe's infatuation with Marlene and Sirius forces her to question where her loyalties lie in the shadow of a rising war.

Men become accustomed to poison by degrees - Victor Hugo
It is October 1949: Lycus Malfoy is dying, quarantined in his house alone but for his wife, Adelaide, who still hopes there is a miracle cure; Eileen Prince has vanished into a Muggle life, washing the dead and arranging flowers, away from the sneers she endured at school; Cygnus and Orion Black are at war with each other even as they bury their secrets six feet deep.
There is a murderer on the loose, shrouded in paranoia, and the old structures, things of blood and age and time, are starting to crumble.
And a ship arrives from Lübeck bringing Tom Riddle home.

Hogwarts was a place where dreams were supposed to be realized. Where students were encouraged to dream of all they could be. But in a time where war made monsters of them all, there was no place for dreaming. Follow the girls of Gryffindor as they come face-to-face with their own demons. Are they strong enough to face the shadows or will they be consumed?

Sirius is busy hexing Death Eaters and such. Lily is busy changing soiled nappies and singing Christmas carols at the wrong time of the year.
How many types of caged birds are there? And most importantly, who set the Jobberknolls free?

James wouldn't do anything to risk their friendship. Sirius would do anything for James.

“It looks,” he says, and maybe he’s cast some spell or maybe the music has quietened or maybe it’s just him, some strange effect he has on her, but suddenly she can hear him as clear as day over the noise of everything else, “like you’re sitting here watching Muggles like you’re in a zoo. Anthropological. Do you think we’re animals, Andromeda Black?”
Andromeda Black's life has been meticulously planned on her behalf. It was past time she refused the path laid out for her.

Fifth year’s barely over, but the future is all everyone wants to talk about. Regulus is determined to outshine his brother. Walden’s planning a marriage that’ll never happen. Tibs wants to be a politician. Becoming the next Bellatrix Lestrange is my goal, and the only one that seems achievable. Yet with the Death Eaters falling like flies, the future looks bleaker than ever.
In five years’ time, we’re all going to be dead.
Remus Lupin has noticed the changes in Sirius Black lately.
