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).
Written for scooterbug8515's Anything But Harry Challenge and just.a.willow.tree's Love, _____. Challenge
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.
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.
The first of the Stygian Trilogy. (Banner by Slide)
Anthony Goldstein, Ministry Prosecutor, has to prosecute a case involving neo-Death Eaters and the Imperius Curse ten years after the war ends. There's something more to it, though, and he can't get the Auror division to investigate -- so he's going to have to take it into his own hands.
a story about Jewish law, Wizarding law and moral law.
Dominique Weasley had always seen herself as that meek girl with ink on her fingers and a nervous heart. The girl who faded into the background. The one you did not think twice of. To her that was never going to change. Until one day an opportunity arose that she could not pass up... a chance to study under one of the greatest living artists in the Wizarding world.
Soon she would find that she was a lot stronger than she thought.

Strange events from the past affects the present in the life of Alexis Kanno; she knows little of the power running in her veins and even less of its potential.

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.
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.

She was told it was a miracle, but it was more akin to a curse, if one looked at how much she lost.
Or alternatively: What would happen if a wizard gave a muggle a blood transfusion?
They say that when a wizard grieves, a most treacherous and beautiful storm is conjured from their despair. This was one such evening… a night of sorrowful rain and painful lightning crashing. Scorpius Malfoy is dead.
Understanding grief from losing Ron, Hermione offers help to Draco, while Rose struggles with losing her father and now her fiance. Oh, the storms of sorrow...

A sad dream at Christmas has Draco scheming to prevent it from coming true. The two get close and on the night of Dumbledore's death, she says, "No." But a magical book keeps them connected during the deadliest times of their lives.
"Granger, I hold on to every memory of you for dear life."

Between the weight of her last name and the overpowering influence of her mother, Rose Weasley tries not to spiral as she attempts to figure her life out and to dismiss all the expectations that her family and the world have for her.
Reserve Beater for the Tutshill Tornados. It sounded like a great career, but for Hollie Finnigan, it was a lot of bench warming and a chance for all of the people she ever told to ask, "Oh, so you know Roxanne Weasley? Can you get me her autograph?"
Hollie knew Roxanne all right. She was in love with her.
A story about love and lies, fame, and a little Quidditch.
Welcome to the edge of control. Look out for the fall.

"Severus reached out and fingered one of the tiny knots, wondering how much of the picture would unravel if he let this one loose."
This story was written a long time ago, and became a character study for "Until We Close Our Eyes For Good". I keep this as a reminder of from whence I came.
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.

(He's not dreaming of Sirius, or of martyrdom, and the anger's just the wolf clawing at him, impatient to be out.)
Language shapes the world, for good or for evil. In silence, wounds fester and arguments begin. And what are wars but arguments out of control?

Off the Rails: To start behaving strangely, in a way that is not acceptable to society; to lose track of reality.
James' life is perfect. He plays Quidditch for the Falcons, an England future seems certain, and the female attention isn't to be scoffed at.
Then he hooks up with a Muggle.
"Remember when you jumped off the Quidditch hoops without a broom? That was a better idea than this."
