Life on Privet Drive is about as boring as life can get. Especially for a teenage witch. But when the lights go out one night, a panicked run for help turns my life upside-down. From family secrets to complicated love, I can't keep my head above water. One wrong move can mean loneliness. It can also mean death.
The core story that begins the AU for which many of my stories take place.
"... Wilkes saw him, Lucius. While he and the Carrow siblings took down the Brockdale Bridge, they saw him!"
She stopped me with The Look. Twisted lips and one eyebrow disappearing into her hair line. "Ahem?" she said, holding out her hand.
Oh. Right. Reaching into my pocket, I pulled out that thing I wasn't supposed to use outside of school and handed it to her.

I quirked an eyebrow at her and then made it turn rainbow and back. "A normal kid?"
There was a popping noise and I turned to look at what it was, but nothing was there. No one was there. I was alone.
"Your hair was changing when I found you. That's a sign of Polyjuice Potion," she said accusingly.
She glanced at me again and grinned slyly. "You know? How do you know?"
"Harry, er, talks in his sleep." He grinned.
"Apparently. What did he say?"
"Something, something, parseltongue."
"Potter! I might have known it was you. Would you mind going at least one year without getting my girlfriend wrapped up in your adventures?"
"You've only just started dating her this year. I didn't know there were rules. Send me a memo next time."
"Oh, no. That is not going to be a thing. He's a boy, for crying out loud!"
"So? Maybe he's a gay Pygmi Puff! Don't you judge him!"
"At the end of the day, I didn't really want to be with Barney Shunpike-"
I... Am very tired... And I have a lot of ground to cover, so screw story mode. This is summary mode. There is a lot to tell and they don't serve coffee at dinner.
"Call me 'ickle' one more time. I dare you."
"What are you doing?"
"Keeping. You're the Chaser. I'm not letting you to the goals."
"Did you forget that I'm actually the Beater?"
