I will lay down my heart
And I’ll feel the power
That you won’t

Summary: It had been three years since his wife's death, but the first woman to make him feel something is the last woman he'd have thought. The fact that he's closer in age to her father than to her does not help matters.
Otherwise known as All Soraya's Fault.
Important note: I used the Student/Teacher warning as a precaution; the relationship in this story is between a teacher and his former student, for whom he had no feelings while she was under his tutelage. Just to be clear.
Another important note: I'm not JKR. She has a much nicer house.
Summary: October 3rd. They still haven't told him; it's likely never will. This is the most and least selfish act they have committed, and in spite of it all they just can't let go. One-shot, Remus/Lily.

Summary: When the sun dies, can the shadow exist?
George had liked Angelina since they were third years sharing blackberries, but Fred had got there first.

Another Disclaimer: All the chapter titles are named after films. I didn't star, write or direct any of them. And there's a good few I haven't even seen.

She doesn't know why because not only do they look very different, but their tastes are different, too - even down to the flavours of their lip balm. For sunny, popular Hannah loves to try new things, and Susan stays with the same lip balm she's always known.
But perhaps she should try something new.
Disclaimer: I am not JK Rowling.
This story has been written for Lea (mugglegirlmarauder) on the occasion of her birthday. Although she is a Gryffindor here, Pottermore begs to differ and has wisely put her in Hufflepuff.
Thank also to Natalie (hestiajones) for the pairing and the lip balm. I'm not sure the story quite does your inspiration justice :(.
Summary: An account of Rose and Scorpius' relationship, right from the awkward beginning to what might be the end.
