The word hung in the air for a long moment. No one who heard it knew the full gravity of it. They knew what it meant, sure. But why was it said? What happened next? ...
Chapter 8 is up!
Lily Evans had loved her daughter very much; enough to use magic that shouldn't exist.
(Danger had dogged the Childe's path for years - )
James Potter had loved his daughter very much; enough to help.
How dare they -
They could not have her.
When they were gone, a ward would be left in place of their sacrifice, constructed to protect their child the only way possible: at all costs. But they hadn't planned on Voldemort's eventual return; or the ward deciding to seek their help in protecting their child...
It was the last true summer of their youth, but the fellowship of the Marauders was blighted by an act of thoughtless anger. Now, Sirius' gone missing and no one has seen him for more than a week. Where did he go, and just as importantly, does Remus really want to find him?

The battle was over. The victors woke into a new dawn, a new era had been born. They were free to live, free to find happiness, free to love. But a cloud drew across their world almost unnoticed, a darkness gathered strength. A new plot conceived. Vengeance approached. Harry must face a new battle, a war for his very being. A story of the 14 months after the battle of Hogwarts.
Christmases in the Black family are boring affairs... especially in the afterlife.

-This story features a darker version of the Marauders era-
Severus has called her a Mudblood not three days ago and now he's hexed James with a new curse of his. But what was unexpected was her reaction to this. Was she turning dark as well? Or was this her role in the war brewing outside of the safety of Hogwarts?
With the initiation of the Death Eaters, the threat of war has become real. As a potential Death Eater, a Mudblood and two Purebloods clash within the walls of Hogwarts, the future seem pretty cut out for them.
But where would there petty childhood rivalries land them?
Banner by me.
A witch hides from the society that shunned her for being a muggleborn...and a slytherin. That is until two broken men, fighting on opposite sides of a war, give her no option but to return to the wizarding world. Magic hasn't managed to convince Clara that she belongs, but friends are more persuasive than any spell could be.

Chloe never asked to become a member of the First Order. She didn't ask to join in the fight against Voldemort; to betray her mother's paralyzing fear of the magical world. She didn't ask to watch her friends die by their own hands. It only took standing in the wrong place, at the wrong time, to change history—and history still needed a martyr.
Winter of 1979 brings with it an age of terror.
Diagon Alley is almost always deserted, propaganda fills the media, and people scurry away from shadows and quiet corners. Voldemort's on the rise with sneaky attacks in prominent places, and the Department of Law Enforcement is stretched thin trying to stop him.
With the Dark Lord preparing to land a heavy blow on the Wizarding World, will a covert operation by the Aurors be able to tip the scales in their favour?
Join James Potter and Sirius Black in Operation Basilisk to find out.

If I'd known a certain messy-haired idiot was going to be in the cottage next to my family's when we went away for winter holidays, I would've stayed at Hogwarts.
"How would you feel about a free trip to France this summer?”
“That depends. What’s the catch?”
“It’s a trip with my family,” Marlene says.
She can’t quite bring herself to look Sirius in the eye as she continues, “I’d be introducing you as my boyfriend.”

"Sirius, this isn't a game."
Caught between a family one one side and sympathies with the other, Cassiel Yaxley started her seventh year at Hogwarts attacked from both sides.
Haunted by dark marks and hunted by people she once called friends, the only person she could turn to was the last person she would ever ask, Sirius Black.

Dollie Kent has a chip on her shoulder and a dilemma on her hands.
Everyone's in love with Sirius Black, except his girlfriend.
A furry little problem and would-be betrayal plagues Remus Lupin.
Three hearts are on the line and no matter what she decides, someone's heart will get broken.
The question is, whose?
A Marauder’s Love Triangle, told from three PoVs...
The trials and tribulations of growing up during a war, and the losses faced, the friends made, and loves burned.

Lily Evans is locked in a broom cupboard and is making lists of reasons.
Reasons why broom closets suck; why I now hate my friends; why I hate James Potter himself; revised reasons why I hate James Potter himself; why Lily Evans is currently confused; why Lily Evans likes James Potter; and why Lily Evans is ridiculously happy.

Sirius Black was ready to go murder Peter Pettigrew until he realised that Harry had survived the attack on Godric's Hollow. He was Harry's godfather, and why should he let Dumbledore overrule the Potters' will?

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!

Stir counterclockwise until trouble occurs. Watch them as they deal with love, sorrow and Death Eaters. Follow their lives through the last year at Hogwarts to the final battle two decades later.
Chapter 20 is in the queue! Chapter Twenty Excerpt:
“Well, you didn’t seem all that bothered to me,” sniped Sirius. “You rallied pretty well. Tell me,” he demanded of her, “is it true that Matt gurgles like a clogged up drain when he laughs?”
“Oh, for Merlin’s sake!” exclaimed Kirsty in exasperation as Sirius allowed himself a small grin of satisfaction. “You’re so immature! If you didn’t like me talking with Matt then you only have yourself to blame.”
“I can’t imagine he had anything interesting to talk about,” said Sirius, continuing with his tirade of obscene insults.
