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.

Love can be quick like a flash of light in a pan lasting today and ending tomorrow. Love can also be eternal, everlasting and take even beyond a lifetime to run its course. For Minerva McGonagall, love had a way of taking the long road for her.
Then the King flew into a passion, and ordered a dark tower to be built, into which no ray of sunlight or moonlight should enter. When it was finished, he said, “Therein shalt thou be imprisoned for seven years, and then I will come and see if thy perverse spirit is broken.” Meat and drink for the seven years were carried into the tower, and then she and her waiting-woman were led into it and walled up, and thus cut off from the sky and from the earth...
A story of love on the American prairie.

Isn't Milominderbinder @ TDA wonderful?
You know when you have a complete step by step plan for your life? Well, I had a perfect one, until Albus Potter came and stomped all over it. So instead of getting good grades, dating girls, and having my dream career, I'm a rockstar's pining boyfriend. Fabulous.
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?
Their romance seems like a sure thing until you throw into the mix a houseful of young adults at Burrow plus the large Potter-Weasley family and anything could happen.

“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.

Or so she thought.

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.

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.

Flick Saunders had a plan, becoming pregnant at 16 was not part of it. Having dropped out of Hogwarts, Flick spent her 6th year looking after her babies whilst being home schooled.
Now she's going back for her 7th year. The only problem is her friends didn't know she was pregnant and neither did the father...
A mysterious illness leaving a handful of uninfected. A school in quarantine, isolated from the outside world. Danger on all sides, striking seemingly at random. And, at the heart of it all, Scorpius Malfoy, the only one to believe this is a part of a wider, dangerous plot.

While Luna simply smiled and nodded, Harry couldn't seem to wipe the expression of shock and disbelief from his face. Finally, he spoke.
"And...if this plan goes wrong, and we all end up dead?"
Michael rubbed the back of his neck. "Well, there's worse things you can be in life than a cautionary tale."

Hi, I'm Lyra Saige Malfoy! You recognized the last name (I tried and failed to pretend I was adopted). As you can probably imagine, being a Malfoy is dreadfully hard work. From warding off weird stares to dealing with your brother and his boyfriend snogging at the breakfast table, things get tough. Which is why I resort to my Gryffindor spirit, and brave it out. Let's just hope things don't fall to pieces!
She had never felt more alive.

Go, go. Walk away from me. Don’t look back. Smiling, I wave my hand in the air.

It's 2015 and the world is perfect.
In a world ruled by science, where religion and superstition no longer exist and have become little more than horror stories, an occult shop opening in the middle of a normal little town terrifies Salil. But why is it that no one else can see it? Except for that crazy old crone that mans the bangles stall...
It's 2015 and somewhere in the shadows, something terrifying is brewing.
