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.
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.

Lavinia trembles in the dim light, torn between the life she is trying to escape and the life that awaits her on the other side of the door.
Sirius Black was a womanizer.
Well, that was one way to put it, anyway. There were others, but they weren't so polite. The point was, Sirius had been with a lot of girls. Peter wasn't really keeping track - really, he wasn't, it wasn't like he was keeping a list or something - but he knew that it was an impressive number. A number that put the rest of the Marauders to shame.
A Farcical, Turbulent Wallowing about a Facetious Faction of Separatists. An iconoclastic conglomerate of nonconformists. A story of social relations as written by an unsocial introvert. . . this should go spiffingly.

There was a small thud as Albus Potter walked into the table, and Scorpius looked up when the boy started chuckling. "Sorry, wasn't watching where I was going."
