The morning the war ended, James dreamt about death.
You roll your eyes at Scorpius' accusation. James wasn't dead, not really.
He was still twitching on the cold stone floor of the corridor.

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-shattering war and falling in love with a Death Eater is even harder. Karkaroff x OC

When tragedy strikes, Lucius Malfoy is forced to make a difficult decision. He then hands his only son over to the Order of the Phoenix, in the hopes that they will protect him from Lord Voldemort. Now, with nowhere else to go, Draco Malfoy is stuck living at the Burrow with the Weasley’s. But when another new witch from America moves in too, things start to get... interesting.
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?

It’s about the way that your memories of that day are either picture perfect or missing, with nothing in between.
Choosing to take the Dark Mark wasn't the easy choice he thought it would be.

I don’t really know how I got to the point where I was entirely too drunk and alone in a Death Eater’s flat with him, but there is is.

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.
Cormac McLaggen has been apppointed flying instructor at Hogwarts, but he has a dark secret in his past. Luna Scamander teams up with Rita Skeeter and Hermione Weasley to push through changes in the way the law treats dosing someone with Amortentia.
Warning: the sexual assault advisory on this is real, and it explores also the demeaning questions that lawyers ask victims of sexual assault.
There are much more fearful words than silence. Words like alone.

Harry's been having bad dreams and needs to take time off from his job as an Auror when he gets an emergency call from George Krupp. Events lead them both to Hogwarts.
A sequel of sorts to 'Graverobbers.'

They always said we had bright futures ahead of us.
They always said we had a choice.
I've learned that neither of these things were true. The truth was, I was dying inside and there was nothing to be done about it.

As one of the Ministry's most respected Aurors, Harry Potter receives many strange reports. But none are as strange as the one that sends him to the Ottery St. Catchpole cemetery, where he must hunt for a ruthless grave robber. What is the connection between the disturbed graves? And why does it almost look like the corpses have crawled out by themselves? Harry must race against time to solve the mystery before it becomes a waking nightmare.
There was a life outside of the order, outside of the dark lord’s inner circle.
Neither denied their loyalties, but in the hush of night it wasn’t spoken of.
Instead, there was only them. Perfect banner by heartfelt @ TDA
