Summary: Embers in a cage made from bone
slowly growing cold
Albus needed her. She didn’t need him.
He was a shadow of who he used to be; there was no life in him.
She was the one who sucked the very soul out of him.
When all was said and done, nothing remained of either of them. They were human debris.
This was written for, inspired by, and generally blamed on Jamie (Acacia Carter). She’s an amazing author, and I hope I did the video, IKEA table, and her justice.

Summary: There have been a few alterations to the plot summary as I've been writing.
So, this is the basics of the new one:
Meredith Bradbury, a previously home-studied witch with a mysterious and tragic past, arrives at Hogwarts during theTrio's seventh and final year.
Things take turns for the worst, the best, the hopeless, and, of course, the unexpected.
Full of fluff, but a bit dark at times. --- Chapter 7 in process!!!!!!!!!!!! REVIEW and you will forever make me happy =)
Summary: It takes sixty years, but Minerva finally comes to understand the truth of George Bernard Shaw's pronouncement on tragedy: "Life contains but two tragedies. One is not to get your heart's desire; the other is to get it."
Summary: I realise that Muggles have always been wrong about ghosts. Ghosts don’t haunt the earth, we are haunted by everything that reminds us of those we love, and we will walk here for the rest of time, cold, alone.
Summary: One day, a dying man collapses in the woods, only to find a true friend...
Summary: As Severus Snape lies dying, he stares into the eyes of the woman he's loved all his life.
Summary: It wasn't love, exactly. But it was a little bit more than friendship. Twelve-year-old Luna needed Archie to remind herself of what she believed in. Archie needed Luna to save him.
This isn't a story about first love. But it is a story about childhood, and making the decision to leave it.
Summary: What happens when an enraged teenager goes after the man that ruined his life?
Inspired by the lovely hestiajones' story, The Receding. Thank you Natalie!
Summary: A look at the sacrifices Lily and Harry made
Nominated for Best Poetry for the 2012 Quicksilver Awards!
Summary: After Severus Snape left Hogwarts during the Battle of Hogwarts, and before the Dark Lord forces Lucius to find Severus, where did the Potions Master retreat to? And what were his thoughts as he spoke with the Dark Lord?
Summary: Haunted by his many failures and by the memory of his friends, Sirius Black comes to Hogwarts to seek the counsel of the only wizard who can help him. Until Justice is done, however, his only master is Truth.
Summary: His life is a wreck. His marriage is a failure. He no longer has a family to fall back upon. His career seems all wrong for him. Everything is just falling apart.
Yes, his life is a wreck.
Until she comes along.
Neville has the rest of his life ahead of him, but all he can do is look back. Molly feels as though she has already lived, and will spend the rest of her life sifting through her memories and regrets and never living in the moment.
AU in that Arthur Weasley dies in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. This is Jamie/AcaciaCarter’s and Soraya/babewithbrains’ fault, and therefore I present it to them.
Summary: In a perfect world, Neville and Hannah's wedding would go off without a hitch. This is not a perfect world.
Summary: History remembers the winners, but who remembers the losers? Everything in Hogwarts tells a story. At Hogwarts, Quidditch is as important as the classes; the Quidditch Cup lists the winning teams, but the bench in the changing room is a memorial to the losing teams.

A haunted house that isn’t haunted, a Muggle fortune teller who can’t actually tell fortunes and the legend of the Cursed Green Pearl! What happens when “the nation’s favourite television ghost-hunters” stumble onto something really magical? What (apart from a mysterious chest, a broken red stiletto and a corpse) lies within the topmost room of the Haunted Tower?
It’s time for the Auror Office’s Muggle Interface Team - Brown, Bones and Beadle - to investigate.

This is one of four mystery stories I wrote for the Challenge. Until now I’ve resisted editing this story as to do so will (I believe) mean that it can’t be judged as part of the challenge (editing after the closing date is cheating). I can’t wait any longer.
Summary: ”For the next hour, I say that for every regret we have from this war, we take a shot. Then, we let them go, and we never mention them again.”
On the eve to the first new year after Voldemort’s death, Oliver Wood finds himself suffocating in emotions he just can’t place
Summary: Draco Malfoy looks back at his childhood now that it is over.
Summary: Katie Bell was surprised to receive an official note from Harry Potter. Usually he just popped his head around the door when he wanted a chat, but then he tells her he needs her help tracking down a dangerous Dark wizard who is targeting Muggle girls.
She can't possibly refuse, especially not when it's Harry asking her.
Disclaimer: It is pointless me pretending any more. Look, I'm not JK Rowling, and never have been.
