As the rest of the Wizard World reacts to Dumbledore's defeat, Harry develops the skills he needs to fulfill the Prophecy--including mastery of the Kedavra curse.
Mysteries are explored along the way, particularly the "missing 24 hours" from 1981--the span of time between Hagrid taking Baby Harry from the ruins of Godric's Hollow on Halloween Night, and his arrival to hand off Baby Harry on Privet Drive the following night. The Veil Room in the Department of Mysteries is also revisited. A traitor is uncovered, and Dumbledore's wisdom comes into question. And even when all goes as planned, things are not all they seem.

"Hermione, you shouldn't cry in public."
"But no one is here...."
That truth made her senses overwhelm with the grief, the cruelty, of losing him, of him slipping away so easily between her fingers. One after another, un-beautified, loud, painful sobs emitted from her lips, coming from low in her throat and projecting her agony across the area. She stumbled blindly, as if in a drunken stupor, towards the grave, falling down before it and grazing her hands as they caught on the grave stone, clinging to it. She scooted herself closer to it, wrapping her arms around it and holding the cold, icy, cement to her chest, as if her heat would make the body beneath her warm and be well once more.
She had never lost so much in her life as she had done in the last year, losing her dignity, her husband, her love, her happiness, her friends, the support of her family. All had slipped away, everything had gone so wrong, and because of her own actions, which she could have prevented if she had only been brave. She had been a Gryffindor in school, but as cowardly as a Slytherin in affairs of the heart. She thought upon the night that had changed her life forever, the night she knew she would never again be the happily married woman she so naively thought she was. The night that she had finally recognized what lay beneath the surface of exterior and into his soul. The night that Hermione Granger, a world recognized author, acquired the plot for what would be one of the bestselling books of the times.
They are insane.
They are both in St. Mungo’s Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries. I believe Neville visits them, with his grandmother, during the holidays.
They do not recognise him.
Frank and Alice Longbottom suffered a terrible fate. It is not one to wish on even your worst enemy. Maybe their fate was written in the stars, and maybe it wasn’t. But, before it happened, pre-set or not, they had a life. They shared a story together. You know how it ends. Do you know how it goes?
Summary: Companion to Torn Between Ice and Emeralds. You don't have to have read it to understand, but having a background story will make some things in this one-shot make more sense.

Through a glimpse into Voldemort’s mind, Harry finds out that Voldemort intends to pay Hogwarts a visit. The trio attempt to head him off, but while there, Harry anxiously arranges a meeting with Ginny by the lake in hopes of letting her know that she still owns his heart. He will soon find out that another has stolen her love in his absence.
I stared deeply into her russet eyes, willing my Ginny to come back to me. I could see in the tears now rolling down her cheeks that there was something on the tip of her tongue, something that would ruin me.
“I love him, Harry.”

My take on how events may pan out in book seven. Spoilers from all previous HP books.
The events of the previous year have brought home to Harry the realization of what has to be done, and the knowledge that it must be done alone. Now as he sets off on his final quest, making new acquaintances along the way, he must bring all his knowledge and skill to bear in his effort to destroy Lord Voldemort. But will it be enough, or is there something that he has missed which might prove to be his undoing?
Summary: Those we love and leave behind always have a way of finding us, though not always in the way we expect.
Missing moment in DH right before the Silver Doe arrives.
Summary: ‘I missed you,’ she whispered into his chest. ‘Two days is a long time.’
It would be expected for them to somehow be pulled apart, be it due to the status of their blood or the houses in which they lay, their seperation was inevitable. For Ted, the hardest part was knowing that Andromeda herself was the reason they had to be apart.
‘Not quite as long as two months,’ he said. ‘Which is how long I was left to miss you.’
A follow up to Don't Apologise, but it can be read as a stand-alone one shot.
Note: The non-consensual sex and violence warnings are minor aspects of the story, mainly written in small flashbacks.
