It's no secret that magical libraries can be strange, even dangerous places. When the Hogwarts library starts behaving even more oddly than usual, Hermione Granger, curse breaker and book aficionado extraordinaire, is just the woman for the job. But why does she keep running into Snape at every turn?
Then the King flew into a passion, and ordered a dark tower to be built, into which no ray of sunlight or moonlight should enter. When it was finished, he said, “Therein shalt thou be imprisoned for seven years, and then I will come and see if thy perverse spirit is broken.” Meat and drink for the seven years were carried into the tower, and then she and her waiting-woman were led into it and walled up, and thus cut off from the sky and from the earth...

Love in three acts: friendship, romance, betrayal. The story of Sirius and Remus.
Every student knows that Hogwarts has a mind of its own. They probably wouldn't sleep at night if they knew what the castle really wants… When a number of students disappear without a trace, Minerva realises how little she knows about what goes on at Hogwarts.
Seven years after Praimfaya, peace has settled across the land, and Bellamy Blake and Clarke Griffin are reunited on the ground. Now all that's left is to face the battle scars that lay deep underneath their skin and the demons that haunt their dreams. But neither of them are ready for what that means -- not just for themselves, but for each other and their future.
Lily needs a little space from her family, so she does the most sensible thing she can think of: she runs away to live in Edwin Dursley's closet.

Perri Laughlin had a weakness and her name was Raven Reyes.
By now, the sight of blue lightning shooting through the streets of Shady Creek wasn't anything to write home about. Bram still remembered a few months prior when his streak of blue lightning was simply something a few internet conspirators blogged about. Sometimes, Bram thought those days were easier than seeing his own masked face on the news every day under a headline that read, "BLUE CHARGE SAVES THE DAY AGAIN".
He didn't pick the name, but it was starting to grow on him.

Roxanne Weasley had always traveled by Portkey or Floo. But for once, she thought that she would try something different. Her grandpa Arthur had gone on and on about this muggle invention called an aeroplane, a death trap made out of metal that soared through the air. He had made it sound like an absolute fairy tale, but with the first hand experience that Roxanne had, she could assure anyone that asked that it most certainly was not.
