She tells everyone she's fine. However, deep down, she knows that life is about more than just being alone. And maybe this is the year she finally reaches out?
Sort of, kind of a Sirius/OC intermingled with some drama sprinkled here and there, a couple of charmingly chubby Hufflepuffs, and enough kissing to make things interesting for everyone who is not, in fact, Cera Hipkiss.
Summary: Most wizards who know him would say twenty-eight-year-old Lorcan Scamander has it all. He is tall, handsome, brilliant, athletic, well spoken and charming. Lorcan followed the Scamander family tradition, becoming a highly respected naturalist.
Lorcan enjoys being in strange and exotic places searching for magical creatures and also previously undiscovered flora. His writing includes not only his scientific discoveries, but also his observations of the people and places he’s seen, which have made him a bestselling author not only in wizarding Britain but also the rest of the magical world.
There are a few people, mostly witches with whom he has had affairs, who say he is aloof, arrogant, and totally narcissistic. Lorcan is a bit of a rogue when it comes to women. He is called “love’ em and leave’ em Lorcan” by his brothers. Locan explains this by saying, “Why love one woman when you can make love to many?”
In a strange turn of events, Lorcan is about to reconnect with an old friend who will turn his well-ordered world and his perception of himself upside down.

Cho Chang doesn't know anything about Dudley Dursley other than the fact that he's a Muggle, he's standing next to Harry Potter, and he is watching her.
