When Finlay Blishwick returns to Hogwarts for his sixth year, he expects his entitled life alongside Tom Riddle to continue as it always has.

Chloe is content with her quiet life amid her Muggle parents' fear of magic.  But after suffering a brutal attack at the hands of would-be Death Eaters, Chloe is thrust into a world both exhilarating and terrifying.  Marlene McKinnon and her friends, the Marauders, are rule-breakers.  They leave laughter and chaos in their wake.  They are everything that Chloe thought she never wanted, least of all Sirius Black: cavalier, reckless and so strangely alluring.  As the years pass, Chloe's infatuation with Marlene and Sirius forces her to question where her loyalties lie in the shadow of a rising war.

Is destiny determined by Chance or Choice?

 

If it is a bit of both, then, the story began years before that fateful Halloween night. It began before the Prophesy was made. It began when a small, puny boy chanced upon a bright, cheerful young girl.

 

Once Upon The Marauders: The Untold Story of their journey through seven years at Hogwarts.

“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.

People may seem fine on the outside, but you never know what someone is truly dealing with underneath it all. So always remember to let your light shine in the darkness for those around you, even when you yourself may not feel as though you have the energy to carry the flame. You never know when a simple smile, compliment, or kind gesture in general can make someone else's day...

 

This piece is to all of my friends, family, and acquaintances.
