Summary: THE END IS NEAR. . .
Even Draco Malfoy is fearful of the end and joins ranks with Harry for his own protection, or at least that is what he leads everyone to believe. An unidentified Deatheater is found murdered in a dark alleyway. A Hogwarts teacher is found dead within the halls of the castle with Harry's name engraved in the forehead. It is definitely dark times.
Harry finds himself in constant self-conflict about who he really is, realizing new strengths and weaknesses. Hormones begin to flare. Secrets are created and exposed. Hearts are broken. Friends are lost, and the darkness of death envelopes the magical world, and even the Muggle world.
With the aid of the mysterious Grace-Fallen Widow, will Harry finally end all this chaos or shall he be destroyed in it?

Summary: “I know you love her.”
“I know, but…” James head leaned hard into his as he tried to explain. “That night when was I with her, as much as I planned it out to do it, it didn’t feel right. I knew I couldn’t go through with it unless….” he sighed. James looked back into Sirius eyes, knowing that Padfoot could finish his sentence.

As a new year starts, the Marauders are all bogged down with their own trifles, Remus Lupin in particular. His sneaking around with a certain peer turns out to be his demise with his mates. Especially the one whose attention he craves the most. Does he feel it's a big enough deal to dangerously reveal things in order to only possibly earn back this boy's friendship? (Maybe more if all goes well.) Or does he choose to wait until the anger subsides? If it will ever. . . .
