All your idols are gilded; all your idols are false.

Home was a rather relative word for the girl who bounced between countries to divorced parents (who continue to do so, going for the record there Mom?), but perhaps, as Carson Wood is coming to find, the word can mean more than just a house with furniture inside.
Or of family, friendship, finding love, and a bit of Quidditch.
When a new group shows up, seemingly comprised of Death Eaters, and with a plan that baffles the entire Magical Community, Albus Potter and his friends are pulled into a mysterious journey filled with questions and danger. Albus finds himself battling his worst enemy - his own mind.

For Madeleine Ellison losing love meant gaining an entire set of friends.
“Hey, it’s no problem. Nobody messes with our squad,” Louis fist bumped Freddie across their tea.
(inspired by a tumblr story which I will credit shortly)
"And I think it was the shock of his friendship that finally made me fall apart..."
A story of complicated friendships, dysfunctional families, incompetent aurors and a surprise ally in Albus Severus Potter.
Adulting really isn't all it's cracked up to be.
Just ask Dahlia Darzi.

Teddy couldn't pinpoint the exact moment when he'd begun to fall for Victoire. She was, after all, his very first friend. But no matter when it started, and no matter how much he tried, Teddy couldn't shake his admiration for her.

Off the Rails: To start behaving strangely, in a way that is not acceptable to society; to lose track of reality.
James' life is perfect. He plays Quidditch for the Falcons, an England future seems certain, and the female attention isn't to be scoffed at.
Then he hooks up with a Muggle.
"Remember when you jumped off the Quidditch hoops without a broom? That was a better idea than this."

The idea of a misfit schoolgirl catching the attention of the most popular boy at Hogwarts is, in Abigail Higgs' opinion, merely a story in one of the comic books her father is famous for creating. However, with a love of comics and a determination to turn fiction into reality, James Potter would like to disagree.

It begins with a disappearance: missing, presumed dead.
Pulled from obscurity at the Daily Prophet, Roxanne Weasley has the rare chance to cover one of the biggest stories of the year. But as she pieces the fragments of the mystery together, there's suddenly much more than just her story at risk.
I'm obsessed with a lot of things like pink coconut ice, bows, Kirley Duke and apparently Louis Weasley. My whole life was a horrendous embarrassing mess around him. It never made sense until Dominique Weasley let me in on their family secret.
"Sorry but do you really not know that Louis is using his powers on you?"
When Albus Potter and Rose Weasley begin their first year at Hogwarts, they're targeted by what seem like malicious practical jokes involving the name of the Dark Lord. Even after nineteen years, who would joke about a man who caused so many deaths? The magical world must once again face the issues which still exist and may again prove divisive.
Thanks to MrsJaydeMalfoy for helping with the summary and to SpoonyLupin for the banner.
The Sorting Hat does take Albus' choice into account, but is it really the right choice?
