All this nonsense about me being a hero is crap. Just because I’ve been through hell and back doesn’t make me a hero.
I’m not a hero; I’m a survivor.
The word hung in the air for a long moment. No one who heard it knew the full gravity of it. They knew what it meant, sure. But why was it said? What happened next? ...
Chapter 8 is up!
Lily Evans had loved her daughter very much; enough to use magic that shouldn't exist.
(Danger had dogged the Childe's path for years - )
James Potter had loved his daughter very much; enough to help.
How dare they -
They could not have her.
When they were gone, a ward would be left in place of their sacrifice, constructed to protect their child the only way possible: at all costs. But they hadn't planned on Voldemort's eventual return; or the ward deciding to seek their help in protecting their child...

Finally Balsa got together with Tanda and had a peaceful moment. She looked back the past and smiled at her husband. They never know the next storm is coming.
Children. Warriors. Heroes. Victims. Survivors.
Harry Potter and his friends struggle to move on with their lives after the Second Wizarding War.
It was the last true summer of their youth, but the fellowship of the Marauders was blighted by an act of thoughtless anger. Now, Sirius' gone missing and no one has seen him for more than a week. Where did he go, and just as importantly, does Remus really want to find him?

Attempting to stay one step ahead of The Cause, which violently echoes the time of Grindelwald, Amelia Fortescue faces turths she'd rather not admit, especially the ones related to James Potter.
As she tries to make sense of her present, she needs to confront her past. Amelia must find her way, but it's not as far as she might think.

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.

It was wrong, they both knew what was happening was wrong, and yet, somehow they couldn’t keep their gaze or their attraction away from one another.

When Finlay Blishwick returns to Hogwarts for his sixth year, he expects his entitled life alongside Tom Riddle to continue as it always has. They are even tasked with finding Henry Potter's illegitimate child for Grindelwald. What Finn doesn't expect, however, is how short the fall from grace really is, and that it leads straight into the arms of dynamic Hufflepuff Brindley McCroy.

“Hello?” Kwai Sim says.
There’s a rustle at the other end, the plastic-pop of interference. Nobody answers, but the line is still holding.
Her heartbeat leaps to a frenetic pace before she even realises why.
“Daniel? Ah Khim? Is that you?” she says, very carefully. If she doesn’t say his name right, or with enough caution, it might not be him. Just her imagination, tricking the name off her tongue.
A series of conversations between two people.

We are a generation defined by the expetcations laid upon us.
-This story features a darker version of the Marauders era-
Severus has called her a Mudblood not three days ago and now he's hexed James with a new curse of his. But what was unexpected was her reaction to this. Was she turning dark as well? Or was this her role in the war brewing outside of the safety of Hogwarts?
With the initiation of the Death Eaters, the threat of war has become real. As a potential Death Eater, a Mudblood and two Purebloods clash within the walls of Hogwarts, the future seem pretty cut out for them.
But where would there petty childhood rivalries land them?

Clearly I underestimated the gravity of the situation.
Mix one Queen Bee, James Potter, and a whole lot of drama - and things are bound to get complicated.

Well, I've sort of erased Voldemort from history and trapped myself in a parallel universe, and things are pretty different now. For example, I don't actually exist. Brilliant.

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.

Chloe never asked to become a member of the First Order. She didn't ask to join in the fight against Voldemort; to betray her mother's paralyzing fear of the magical world. She didn't ask to watch her friends die by their own hands. It only took standing in the wrong place, at the wrong time, to change history—and history still needed a martyr.
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.

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.

Winter of 1979 brings with it an age of terror.

With the Dark Lord preparing to land a heavy blow on the Wizarding World, will a covert operation by the Aurors be able to tip the scales in their favour?
