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.
Translated from original runes by Hermione Granger. Includes additional notes by Albus Dumbledore.

If Severus successfully completed his apprenticeship, he'd get the opportunity to earn a title for himself. A Master. Prequel to 'Until We Close Our Eyes For Good'.
The North of England is a region rich in history and heritage, and its tales are passed down through the generations.
These are the stories of how the North was born.

Phineas Nigellus Black, the least popular Head Hogwarts ever had, according to his Great-Great-Grandson.
It was written for “nott theodore's Fairy Tale Challenge”.
I got a hint, a concept for this story from a traditional old English ballad, “Reynardine (The Mountains High)".
I'd like to dedicate this story to Holly, Alopex.
Faithful friend, tender lover, patient teacher- the epitaph of our hero, Remus John Lupin.

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.
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.

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.

Rejected Twin, Quidditch Towel Boy, and quite possibly the Worst Potions Student Ever, Edmund escapes the daily humilities of his life through his sketchbook. But when a drawing of James Sirius Potter (who is Most Definitely Not His Crush) falls into a potion and conjures a clone of him, things get twice more complicated.

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.)

"Charlie unfolded the letter for the umpteenth time since receiving it. He knew reading it again wouldn't do any good - in fact, it would most likely continue to make him feel worse - but he did it anyway. It was all still too hard to believe."

She's a Muggle-born rebel who needs to be a conformist. He's a pureblood conformist who wants to be a rebel. They're an unlikely team, but helping each other is essential if they're going to make it through Voldemort's new regime alive.

Hogwarts was a place where dreams were supposed to be realized. Where students were encouraged to dream of all they could be. But in a time where war made mosters of them all, there was no place for dreaming. Follow the girls of Gryffindor as they come face-to-face with their own demons. Are they strong enough to face the shadows or will they be consumed?

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

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.
