Adulting really isn't all it's cracked up to be.
Just ask Dahlia Darzi.
(ft. cold coffees, copious curses of an impressive variety, persistent Potters, and the unfortunate habit of apparating away from uncomfortable situations.)
Love strikes as fast as lightning and burns as slow as the sun for some. With others it takes many attempts to combust and backfires with an unpleasant bang. For some the spark never comes at all.
What will be the love story of Lily and Lysander?
Advent is a time for hoping, for waiting, for believing; a time when gods descend to the earth, and the celestial is made temporal.
A shame then, that Grantaire believed in nothing but Enjolras.
Or, Grantaire lit four red candles, one each Sunday of Advent; each time, he was visited by a god: a god who performed miracles.
For the Holiday and Diversity Challenge.
Fifty years after the fall of Grindelwald, old scars and wounds linger, as do the ideologies which caused them - some plan to use them to their own ends, no matter the collateral damage.
Six years later, the Second War against Voldemort has been over for a year, the wounds scabbing over, and Hermione Granger is determined to force change.
Viktor Krum is struggling to remember quite what hope is; that change does come, if slowly. There is poison in the past, but healing is possible.

Laila (n): Arabic word for 'night'.
And this was a night unlike any other. Laila eclipsed all else, and that changed everything.

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.

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.

Don’t tell your boy/girlfriend that you like their brother.
This will cause them to flip out.
And when the school explodes, it’s only a matter of time until we figure out who ratted themselves out.
A story about secret societies, unrequited romances, scalding hot tea, and the too often done human tendency of settling for second best.

The human breaking point is at a different level for every being.
For me, it does not exist, as I have always been broken.
A Scorpius Malfoy story.
Ronan is just your average teenager.
He draws a weekly page for his Zombie Cat comic in Hogwarts Weekly. He absolutely hates quidditch with a passion. And like any English-Dane he’ll drink almost any kind of tea.
His life was not supposed to get dramatic.
A Farcical, Turbulent Wallowing about a Facetious Faction of Separatists. An iconoclastic conglomerate of nonconformists. A story of social relations as written by an unsocial introvert. . . this should go spiffingly.
A poem about not fitting into the social normative as a Grey Ace.
Pool is anything but a game. Play with caution, because you're playing for keeps.

Alliah (shadowhunter, with an extra magic touch), Nicholas (Moroi with declared water magic), Jay (on the run from enemies and telekinetic.)
These three have been selected for the new Hogwarts Diversities program. It’s going to be a rough year for the existing Hogwarts students.

In the wake of the Second Wizarding War, people with connections to the Death Eaters are being summoned to the Ministry for an interview that will determine whether they can keep their wands. With her father among the Death Eater ranks, and her brother one of the werewolves in Greyback’s pack, on parchment Liv Montague is no different from her peers. Yet one thing sets her apart from the rest: the confession to murder that she’s waiting to make.

Ivy Westover has always dreamed of becoming a world famous magizoologist from the moment she set foot in her first Care of Magical Creatures class. Fast forward a few years, and she finds herself in a dead end desk job with no hopes until her former best friends, famed wizarding naturalist Molly Weasley and bestselling author Harriet Dursley, come crashing back into her life in a way that she could have never expected.

In death we are reborn anew; though the death doesn't have to be ours.
