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?

Elizabeth Clarke, Alice Murray, and Lucy Wilson all found themselves travelling on the grandest ship the world had ever seen: the RMS Titanic.
Elizabeth was travelling first class on her way back from her European honeymoon. Alice was being sent to care for her ailing grandmother in second class, escorted by her elder brother. Lucy was an Irish immigrant, heading to the United States with her family.
The three had no reason to meet until the unthinkable happened and the unsinkable ship hit an iceberg.

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.)
Immortality is as much ambrosia as it is poison: it is selfish, egotistical and all-consuming.
We fell; or rather, one fell - the other was already at the bottom.
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.
It is a truth, universally acknowledged, that a young witch in possession of prodigious talent, must be in want of a rival.
See what happens when a Rose full of pride (and not a little prejudice) meets a Scorpius full of neither.
Like P&P the romance will eventually come, but Rose has to fall in hate with Scorpius long before she finds out how much he really means to her.
*sigh* because it is a thing now, I have to say that this was started before the Cursed Child came out, and as such is probably non-compliant with it. *even deeper sigh*
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.

A sequel of sorts to 'Graverobbers.'
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

Life on Privet Drive is about as boring as life can get. Especially for a teenage witch. But when the lights go out one night, a panicked run for help turns my life upside-down. From family secrets to complicated love, I can't keep my head above water. One wrong move can mean loneliness. It can also mean death.
Leah's comment really summed up what Bram was thinking.

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.

They always said we had bright futures ahead of us.
They always said we had a choice.

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)
Draco Malfoy merely wants to buy his son his first wand, but he's unwelcome everywhere.
