All this nonsense about me being a hero is crap. Just because I’ve been through hell and back doesn’t make me a hero.
I’m not a hero; I’m a survivor.

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.

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.

Sybill is coddled by her family for being too 'fragile' to be on her own. She's never had a 'real' job. Her family doesn't take her abilities seriously, because of the tragedy that befell her grandmother Cassandra.
So, armed with a handful of savings and more determination than talent, Sybill sets out to seek her own fortune...by telling the fortunes of others.

Clearly I underestimated the gravity of the situation.
Mix one Queen Bee, James Potter, and a whole lot of drama - and things are bound to get complicated.

Well, I've sort of erased Voldemort from history and trapped myself in a parallel universe, and things are pretty different now. For example, I don't actually exist. Brilliant.

"Have no fear, Quinn Jones."
Apparently, it is a truth universally acknowledged that I, Quinn Jones, a full-fledged Gryffindor, am actually afraid of three little words.
What a load of nonsense.

She was more than a pimply intellectual.
He was more than a Quidditch-crazed playboy.
She was worth looking at. He was worth listening to.

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.

The War revealed many truths about humankind...the most important of those truths is that all humans are innately inclined to violence and chaos. We are hosts to an entire horde of plaguing ailments like jealousy and greed and we lack the physical and emotional capabilities to cope with such diseases. That is how the War started. That is how the world ended. That is why there is a grand nothingness on the Outside, beyond the walls of the Sovereignty.
My name is Cyril Bernard and I play a highly important role in maintaining the peace and overall wellbeing of our wonderfully prospering society (despite what that Mark Van said because what does that peacebreaker know anyway).

Inspired by starbuck's awesome premade banner, I could write this.
Meet Lark Jordan: She’s the snarky Hogwarts Quidditch commentator, with a dad that narrates everything, a jealous twin sister, two best mates losing all sorts of virginities, a love for cheesecake, and Freddie Weasley. The new flirty commentator that she has to work with. Oh, bugger.
Much to her family's dismay, Dominique Weasley is bringing yet another boy home for dinner, but just maybe this one is for real.
