The War revealed many truths about humankind...the most important of those truths is that all humans are innately inclined to violence and chaos. We are hosts to an entire horde of plaguing ailments like jealousy and greed and we lack the physical and emotional capabilities to cope with such diseases. That is how the War started. That is how the world ended. That is why there is a grand nothingness on the Outside, beyond the walls of the Sovereignty.
My name is Cyril Bernard and I play a highly important role in maintaining the peace and overall wellbeing of our wonderfully prospering society (despite what that Mark Van said because what does that peacebreaker know anyway).

“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.)

Charlie Weasley had pretty much resigned himself to solitude. He was content with his life, fulfilled by his work, and not particularly interested in seeking out a mate.
Besides, where was he going to find someone else who shared his passion for magical creatures and would want to talk about dragons for hours on end?
Right in the middle of Weasley's Wizard Wheezes, as it turned out.

Then she saw it. Two broken, wavy lines across the top of his wrist, not pink from the coffee spill, but actually glowing from under his skin. At the same time, she felt her own wrist burn like it never had before. The marks were shockingly familiar, like the underside of her own arm. They matched hers.
No. It couldn’t be this man. There had to be some mistake.

Love can be quick like a flash of light in a pan lasting today and ending tomorrow. Love can also be eternal, everlasting and take even beyond a lifetime to run its course. For Minerva McGonagall, love had a way of taking the long road for her.

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...
A story of love on the American prairie.

It had been a long time since he'd been touched by a woman. But this... this was something different. Different because it went beyond the sexual realm to a place where a soul is comforted and given peace.
Separated by war and desperately missing each other, both Harry and Ginny write letters to one another, despite knowing they can never send them.
Monsters under the bed come in all shapes and sizes, and sometimes, even people can get overlooked.

Gellerd Grindelwald, the second darkest wizard of all time. How did he learn of the Deathly Hallows? How did he rise to power? How was Albus Dumbledore able to defeat him? And why, at the end of his life, did he try to protect the one who had locked him away?
With prematurely graying hair, one lazy eye, and a nervous stutter, Xenophilius Lovegood has always been prone to fading into the background. But when the adventurous Capria Lindfield steps in and offers him an experimental stuttering remedy, he learns to step out of himself and into her light. It's not just her cherry-flavored tonics that are addicting.
