Summary: “Do you trust me, Alice?”
After all this strange talk of magic, and wizards, and schools I’ve never heard of, and invisible worlds? I bite my lip. I want, so badly, to say that I trust him. It would have been true up until last night.
I look him in the eyes. I almost think I can see his soul there.
Still holding my hand, he steps forward. I close my eyes and allow him to tug me along.

I'm rachelnotrach of Hufflepuff and this is my submission to the Great Hall Of Christmas' Past, Present and Future Challenge- Prompt 1.
The tale of Harry Potter ended with the defeat of Lord Voldemort and the start of a new age of peace in the Ministry of Magic and the wizarding world.
The tale of his second son, Albus Potter, however, starts with this, and with his journey to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. But in his first two years at the school for magic, Albus finds that his story will not unfurl as smoothly as one might expect in such a peaceful era. He finds himself confronted with a Hogwarts in turmoil, with a new Headmaster that seeks to chip away at the school's foundation as well as a student body that shuns their own kind. He finds himself opposing his family - such as his very talented, popular older brother James and his best friend and cousin Rose Weasley - and defending those who should be his enemies - such as Scorpius Malfoy, son of the ex-Death Eater Draco Malfoy, Emily Black, a self-centered and bratty girl with a big secret, and Katsurou Sen, the mysterious youngest son of a wealthy wizard family who is almost never seen. Albus even finds that his identity and desire to honor his father, once seeming so simple and sincere, could lead him onto a path he never imagined. Hogwarts has become a twisted Wonderland, where everything that had seemed good outside of the school shows itself to wicked, and everything that had seemed wicked...could possibly be good.
In the midst of all this, danger lurks in Albus Potter's future -- a danger that he will have no choice but to face differently than his famous father would have.

Summary: *”Not if he thought I was the spy, Peter,” said Lupin. “I assume that’s why you didn’t tell me, Sirius?” he said casually over Pettigrew’s head.
“Forgive me, Remus,” said Black.
“Not at all, Padfoot, old friend,” said Lupin, who was now rolling up his sleeves. “And will you, in turn, forgive me for thinking you were the spy?”
“Of course,” said Black, and the ghost of a grin flitted across his gaunt face…*
Those words, spoken between two old friends, lead one to wonder why two friends could have ever suspected each other of being a traitor. What could have happened once they left school to make them distrust each other?

I must also thank Bine for doing a quick and valuable beta job for me on this. Muse wasn’t interested in making sure it was all correct, she just wanted to write.
