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.
"From that moment forward, the dog returned to witches and wizards and Muggles alike to bear warning. His spectral presence soon became known as the Grim, an omen of death. Pray we heed his warning, should he ever come to us."
Written for ImaRavenclaw's First Kiss Challenge

Sirus Black x Mary Macdonald
Is destiny determined by Chance or Choice?
If it is a bit of both, then, the story began years before that fateful Halloween night. It began before the Prophesy was made. It began when a small, puny boy chanced upon a bright, cheerful young girl.

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.
War is no place for lovers or children, for late nights in the pub or early mornings in the sun. But for one group of friends, that matters not. This is a story about those with hearts brave enough to beat through battle, to withstand the lashings of fear. A story about those who refuse to surrender. Join them as they fight for light, even as darkness descends.
Sequel to Before They Fall
From virtually the moment they met, James Potter and Lily Evans were at odds. He was a hex-happy prankster with talent comparable only to his loyalty and arrogance. She was a clever student with a kind heart, but little patience for rule-breaking. This is the story of how two apparent opposites came to realize they were, in reality, a perfect fit.

There has been a death, but there is no body.
A collection of unsent letters, addressed to Sirius Black,
and dedicated to a certain prokaryote.
You were Sirius.
You probably don’t even remember my name. For I was closer a number on a list or a notch in your bedpost than I ever was a name to you.
A small confession from a forgettable fangirl. The unrequited love of just another number. Because some of us don't know how to let go...
The year is 1976. Lily Evans and the Marauders are starting their sixth year and things are changing. Voldemort is gaining power both inside and outside of Hogwarts. It is time to choose sides in the upcoming war, which may mean cutting out old friends and forging new friendships.

They always said we had bright futures ahead of us.
They always said we had a choice.
I've learned that neither of these things were true. The truth was, I was dying inside and there was nothing to be done about it.

The Order of the Phoenix were not the only rebels working to undermine You-Know-Who and the Death Eaters. Some people preferred to operate even further behind the scenes, away from the fighting. This is the story of a group of former Slytherins who assisted in their own way, unnoticed except by those who needed help the most.
Sequel to 'The Brave at Heart' (but can stand alone)

Being alive is difficult.
So is living.
Deciding who to be and what to believe combines to create eight revolutionaries.
She fights for a world she hates as much as it hates her. It never stops; not until the world of magic burns to ashes to be reborn, or destroys Lily Evans and all caught in her wake. From Hogwarts to the defeat of Voldemort, the rise of the bright young friends, allies, and enemies of the Order of the Phoenix - and how each and every one of them fell

Lily’s mouth twitched for a second as if she was going to laugh. – OotP.
Lily had a sense of humor.
Sirius had a plan up his sleeve.

Didn't like the ending to How to tame a Marauder? Well, I tried writing another one to see how it would turn out. I think it has holes you can drive a truck through, but that's by the by.
A series of one-shots based around How to tame a Marauder, featuring deleted scenes, missing moments and different POVs.
Thanks to mizzxpearl, DarkRose and NGSeries from the old HPFF, who helped come up with the story title.

In this issue, Millie and Sirius are back with another adventure! The task was simple: brew a potion that can turn people into man-bats - what could possibly go wrong?

"Conflicted interests" is one way you could describe Sirius Black and Millie White's relationship. At best, there's one-sided small talk. At worst, it's all-out war. But when Sirius manages to convince Millie into one of his hare-brained schemes, the coming clash will ensure that senior year at Hogwarts College of Magical Arts won't be what either of them expected.

As Sirius led me around the room, I took a deep breath and looked up at him firmly.
“So, was it a bet or a dare?”
“What are you talking about?” he asked, shiftily enough to tell me my guess had been right. When his eyes drifted to where James was sitting by the far wall, I grinned.
“Don’t play dumb. We both know you’d never ask me to dance in a million years. Not with ninety-five percent of the girls here gagging for it, and, well, I’m not. Besides, Potter just gave you the thumbs up.”
He groaned. “Are we really that obvious? Okay, yes, it was a dare.”

Fifth year’s barely over, but the future is all everyone wants to talk about. Regulus is determined to outshine his brother. Walden’s planning a marriage that’ll never happen. Tibs wants to be a politician. Becoming the next Bellatrix Lestrange is my goal, and the only one that seems achievable. Yet with the Death Eaters falling like flies, the future looks bleaker than ever.
In five years’ time, we’re all going to be dead.
