A sad dream at Christmas has Draco scheming to prevent it from coming true. The two get close and on the night of Dumbledore's death, she says, "No." But a magical book keeps them connected during the deadliest times of their lives.
"Granger, I hold on to every memory of you for dear life."
When faced with death Regulus cannot help but reflect on his life and the things that brought him to this point.
While Luna simply smiled and nodded, Harry couldn't seem to wipe the expression of shock and disbelief from his face. Finally, he spoke.
"And...if this plan goes wrong, and we all end up dead?"
Michael rubbed the back of his neck. "Well, there's worse things you can be in life than a cautionary tale."

In a brief moment, Tom almost hesitates.
In a remote Scottish glen, a castle stands, a castle that has seen a thousand different Christmases. But even those thousand years seem fleeting to the mountains themselves, for they stood before the castle was built and will last after the towers have crumbled.
It began with a light. A green light that surrounds him and engulfs him into darkness. It was new to him - this feeling, yet somewhat familiar in an eerie sorta way. What is this place? The sound of people began to fill his ears. His eyes opened to the scene of a train station, a well-known one, to him, anyway - Kings Cross Station.
He thought he'd finally escaped. But no, there was never an escape. Not from Azkaban, and not from the Dark Lord.

Ambrosius Yaxley: aspiring Death Eater and lover of all things illicit. Edward Bulstrode: aspiring Auror and lover of books and knowledge.
They make an unlikely pair, the two of them. When their relationship fails, they go their separate ways, thinking it is the end. But when their paths cross in the First Wizarding War, on opposite sides of the conflict, they find themselves torn as duty meets desire.
After his humilating defeat at the hands of Harry Potter, Voldemort must confront the harsh realities of being an underemployed dark lord in the midst of a recession.
Three very different characters.
One thing in common.

Leaving Hogwarts to leap into the cesspool of adulthood is hard. Leaving Hogwarts to leap into the cesspool of adulthood in the wake of a life-altering war and falling in love with a Death Eater is even harder.

When tragedy strikes, Lucius Malfoy is forced to make a difficult decision. He then hands his only son over to the Order of the Phoenix, in the hopes that they will protect him from Lord Voldemort. Now, with nowhere else to go, Draco Malfoy is stuck living at the Burrow with the Weasley’s. But when another new witch from America moves in too, things start to get... interesting.
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.
He didn’t even know how to say “Good-bye”.

Destiny is the result of people's choices. And any single choice can change it completely.
In this AU the Marauders are still alive and free (more or less...), Neville Longbottom is the guy with the scar, and Harry... Well, just read and find out!
Choosing to take the Dark Mark wasn't the easy choice he thought it would be.
At any rate, dear Tom was successful at recombining the remnants of his soul. The manner in which to do this is to repent for his cruelty and heinous acts by experiencing the feeling of true remorse.
Alas, Tom Riddle did not appear to have a shred of humanity left in him.
