When tragedy strikes, Lucius Malfoy is forced to make a difficult decision. He then hands his only son over to the Order of the Phoenix, in the hopes that they will protect him from Lord Voldemort. Now, with nowhere else to go, Draco Malfoy is stuck living at the Burrow with the Weasley’s. But when another new witch from America moves in too, things start to get... interesting.

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.

"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.

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.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to travel through time?
To experience life in a different decade?
To live through the pages of your history of magic text books?
Well, I wondered. Vaguely. I just never expected it to actually happen to me.
"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.
A (Magic) College AU

Caprice ~ Unpredictable...
Of all unpredictable things love is by far the most notorious. It binds, breaks, ruptures, hurts, punches, kicks, embraces, consumes, inspires, gives and takes. And all of it, you can never know when to expect...

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.

When we graduated, they always said we had bright futures ahead of us.
If only I knew then what I know now.
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.

Character exploration: Mary MacDonald c. 1977
Sirus Black x Mary Macdonald
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.

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.

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)

A story about a teenage inferius. Stranger things have happened.

Being alive is difficult.
So is living.
Deciding who to be and what to believe combines to create eight revolutionaries.

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
