Albus Severus Potter and the Thingamajig of Destiny by TrueMarauder
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 28]
Summary: The scar had not pained Harry for nineteen years. All was well.
Or was it?
Voldemort is dead, but strange things are happening at Hogwarts (again). A mysterious object has resurfaced from the very origins of Hogwarts itself, and a wannabe Dark Lord is trying to steal it. With the help of a very unusual book, it is up to Albus and his friends to stop him.
One can only expect this when a Potter comes to Hogwarts.
Summary: “…and all the men and women merely players”
--William Shakespeare, As You Like It, 1600
When Professor Viola Cassio arrives at Hogwarts, she is dismayed by the lack of Muggle culture her students exhibit. She intends to make some changes - starting with the introduction of Shakespeare to her students. And organising a Drama Club seems like the perfect way to begin.
Compelled into joining by her friends, bookish Rose Weasley finds herself unwittingly sucked into Professor Cassio’s reproduction of Romeo and Juliet… as the leading lady. Unfortunately, it seems that none other than Scorpius Malfoy has been assigned the role of Romeo. But as personalities clash and sparks fly, Rose finds it increasingly difficult to distinguish where rehearsal ends and real life begins.
To top off the whole fiasco, someone is after the Drama Club’s closure, and will seemingly stop at nothing to get it…

Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 18]
Summary: Aberforth Dumbledore was once infamous throughout the land for casting Inappropriate Charms on goats. He never responded to the claims, never gave his side of the story and lived with an odd reputation for decades.
But now he wants to set the record straight before Rita Skeeter has a chance to twist things furthur awry.

The A/U warning is because some people will think it's A/U, but I happen to think it's the way it would happen.
Albus Potter was dying.
As his brother's body was ravaged by an insanely rare disease, James Potter set out on an incredible journey in search of a mythical creature that everyone was sure was extinct, because if he did not, the cure for Albus's disease could not be concocted and he would die a slow, painful death.
If the journey in itself was not strange enough, James encountered a legendary figure, who agreed to guide him through his quest through many lands.

Summary: A glimpse into the everyday lives of your favourite Marauders. In which Peter is not Sirius' mummy, James daydreams of lunch, and Remus just honestly can't stand his ex-girlfriend. I am LilyLunaPotter of Hufflepuff, and this is my final for MWPP class Autumn 2009.
Summary: The whoosh of a speeding Bludger was followed by the scream of a female voice.
Slytherin Chaser Armis Berkley was knocked off her broom, and she fell through the air.
James Potter, Gryffindor Chaser, gripped his broom and sped towards the falling body, even though he knew he’d never reach her in time.
Severus Snape blanched. Berkley always pestered him in the common room, asking him to help her with Charms homework.
Sirius Orion Black jumped up from his seat as the rest of the spectators did. A single obscene curse escaped his lips.
Peter Pettigrew prayed. Dear God, please don’t…no…no…
Lily Evans gasped as an odd monotonous sound rang in her ears.
Remus John Lupin shuddered involuntarily. DUMBLEDORE!
This is hestiajones of Hufflepuff writing for the final in the MWPP class on the Beta Boards. This story has just been nominated for a QSQ in the Best Marauder Era category. :D Thanks!
DISCLAIMER: So not J.K.Rowling.
Summary: The story begins a few weeks after the end of Half-Blood Prince, when Harry is back at the Dursleys' once again, waking up Uncle Vernon from his favorite golfing dream. On escaping from the Dursleys', he finds that Hogwarts is open again and decides to return there after all, but only to find himself face-to-face with both Snape and Voldemort much sooner than he thinks! Through the course of the story, Harry will meet the most mysterious DADA teacher yet, learn the truth of the misunderstanding that took place on the lightning-struck tower, and discover that there really is a little more to Petunia that meets the eye, all the while with references to the amorphous Deathly Hallows.
This is meant to be a humorous rendition of what could happen in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. It is intended to be a parody rather than a serious prediction of what happens next.
Summary: When your world has collapsed all around you, who would you turn to for solace? Could you find comfort in the arms of an enemy? Could you find your angel?
