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.
“So,” said Harry, “the diary. . .the ring. . The cup, the locket, the snake. . . and something that was once Ravenclaw’s or Gryffindor’s.“
“An admirably succinct and accurate summary, yes,” said Dumbledore, bowing his head. (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, p. 507, American Edition.)

Ryn pulled her gaze back to Maddie. She had the biggest eyes ever. They sat in her face, those round robin eggs of eyes. Unblinking, fragile, waiting to hatch into hairless twiggy birds that would squirm out of her eye sockets. But there was nothing birdlike about Ryn.
“Helen let me stay here.” Ryn turned to face the log and stone cabin behind. “She visits often.”
“She told me that.”
“I am trying to make my own life here, in this house.”
“Yeah?” said Maddie again, smiling. “Let's see it, then.”
Maddie goes to visit Ryn.

and it was limitless, endless...
His gaze locked with hers and it was almost as if he’d performed a body binding spell. His eyes were full of shadows. “That’s the thing,” he said his arm stretched out, as if he could close the chasm between them with his reach. “Sometimes resistance is futile.”

“Well, you didn’t seem all that bothered to me,” sniped Sirius. “You rallied pretty well. Tell me,” he demanded of her, “is it true that Matt gurgles like a clogged up drain when he laughs?”
“Oh, for Merlin’s sake!” exclaimed Kirsty in exasperation as Sirius allowed himself a small grin of satisfaction. “You’re so immature! If you didn’t like me talking with Matt then you only have yourself to blame.”
“I can’t imagine he had anything interesting to talk about,” said Sirius, continuing with his tirade of obscene insults.
