Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 266]
Summary: A companion piece to the Potter's Pentagon trilogy... it's better if you've read the Potter's Pentagon trilogy, but you don't necessarily have to.
It's five years after Emma Weasley and her chums graduated from Hogwarts. Ted and Ivy are married, Haley is working at Madame Puddifoot's while trying desperately to break into show business, Jordan's doing whatever it is he does, and Emma is an Auror trainee working as a guard at the Chudley Cannons' stadium. The Cannons have actually been doing much better lately, due to their new star Beater, Tyrone Thomas. Unfortunately, Tyrone is Emma's ex-boyfriend. OH, THE AWKWARDNESS.
Follow Emma through her awkward adventures told in her usual insane way, as she experiences angst, hilarity, obnoxiously strange people, misadventures involving a deceptively dashing cad, Haley's wedding, the birth of Ted and Ivy's baby, and her own eventual descent into LURRRVE.
Written for the marvellous Vindictus Viridian's Pride and Prejudice NEWTs class on the Fanfiction Beta Boards, based on Jane Austen's fantastic novel, "Pride and Prejudice.".

Summary: It’s been almost a year and a half since the war ended, and life is looking good for Susan Bones. She shares a flat with Hannah Abbott (and occasionally Ernie Macmillan, now Hannah’s boyfriend), plans on applying to train as an advocate soon, and follows no less than five programs faithfully on the WWN. And then things get even better when she falls into a weird but wonderful relationship with a violinist named Robin Chanticleer, a larger-than-life character who reminds her of her favorite radio personalities. In fact, you could probably sum up her life right now with the phrase “weird and wonderful.”
But good things don’t always last forever, and her relationship with Robin, and even Robin himself, are not all they seemed at first. Will she and Robin work things out and live happily ever after, or is their relationship doomed to founder?
This story is a sequel of sorts to Honest to the Bone, but you probably don't need to read Honest to the Bone to understand what's going on so whether you choose to read it first or not is up to you.

Hannah Abbott was up to her eyeballs in a business she scarcely knew how to run. Out of money and sleep deprived, all she could do was grind out day after day, but she couldn't last forever that way.
