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?

We are all prisoners in some form, some physically but others mentally bound by our own sanity, anger, guilt and regret.

In small town USA where no one bothers to keep magic a secret, Friday night Quidditch reigns supreme. For the Fort Mill Eagles, finally having a winning season means having to balance school, practice, and personal lives while keeping secrets no one wants to come out.
It's more than just a game.

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.
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.

Fifty years after the fall of Grindelwald, old scars and wounds linger, as do the ideologies which caused them - some plan to use them to their own ends, no matter the collateral damage.
Six years later, the Second War against Voldemort has been over for a year, the wounds scabbing over, and Hermione Granger is determined to force change.
Viktor Krum is struggling to remember quite what hope is; that change does come, if slowly. There is poison in the past, but healing is possible.

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.

"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."

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.

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.
Leah stared at her phone screen, at the very first post on her Tumblr dash. Specifically, at her best friend's name. Her heart felt like it was in her throat.
Amidst scandals in the Ministry and wars and rebellions across the Muggle world, the first Minister for Magic is elected.
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
A drug fuelled, hierarchical Hogwarts, led by one Lily Luna Potter
Rule Number 143 of SS
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.
Penny has one goal- fix the broken public magical education system. However, when tragedy falls on her life, she's thrown into a dark world of anger and vengence. Two hands reach out to help her, but one will pull her into the light and the other will drag her down.

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.
In the fall of 1998, Hermione Granger agrees to help Unspeakables with a subject she has experience with. Yet, what seems like a simple matter results in surprising consequences. She has just found romance at the end of the Second Wizarding War, but a twist of fate has sent her to the midst of First Wizarding War and some unusual companions.

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.
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.
