Summary: A few months past the defeat of Voldemort, it’s a normal day for Harry, Ron and Hermione. Following the war, everything is pretty much fine and everyone is living life quite normally.
But how much has the ‘dust settled’, really? After all, there are people out there still waiting to seek revenge for the fall of the Dark Lord. And Harry, Ron and Hermione obviously have had everything to do with the death of Voldemort…
Some silliness, a bit of Firewhiskey, a few drunken kisses… all of it seems to be a part of the agenda as Harry, Ron and Hermione face their past once again, unprepared for any of it this time. Will they win, or will they be caught unawares?

If you only knew
I'm hanging by a thread,
The web I spin for you.
If you only knew
I'd sacrifice my beating
Heart before I'd lose you.
If I drown tonight, bring me
Back to life.
Breathe your breath in me;
The only thing that I still believe
In is you.
If you only knew...
They weren't sure, but they might have loved one another all along. Some avenues were always meant to be explored.
Summary: Frank and Alice Longbottom risked everything for their careers. When the rules have changed and the Death Eaters no longer play by common law, they, too, question the game.
As always, this one’s for Akay (PadfootPatronus) and anyone else who has questioned themselves.

They cannot keep doing this; it is only a matter of whose resolve will break first. They may have grown distant, their friendship may never mend, but something else has begun. Similarly to the sultry dance so reminiscent of their stolen kisses, drifting apart is only the beginning.

Summary: 'If you change your mind, I'm the first in line. Honey, I'm still free, take a chance on me.'
They say that your last year of school is supposed to be your best. Too bad that isn’t true for Lily Evans and James Potter. Who knew that everything can be ruined in a week? First an over-the-top crush, then two friendships. Can you fix everything by someone changing their mind or is it too late once it’s over?

Summary: Christmas 1976 and Severus Snape sits in his room with only his thoughts to keep him company.
This song/poem is a parody of probably the best (and bitterest) Christmas song in the entire universe. The original, called I Believe in Father Christmas' was by Greg Lake of Emerson, Lake and Palmer. I strongly recommend that you listen to the original.

Summary: Severus Snape, dangerously embroiled in his duties as Dumbledore's spy, encounters yet further obstacles when he begins to harbor feelings for a sixth year Gryffindor student. Succumbing to his desires sets in motion a chain of events that could very well destroy all that he and the opposition of Lord Voldemort have striven so hard to accomplish. Please keep in mind that this is written from the angle that Snape is no longer a follower of Voldemort, and that its events coincide with books 4, 5, and 6, with a slight continuation beyond HBP. (Chapters 1-15 need some fixing to work with Book 7.)
Summary: Brothers were strange creatures.
For as long as Lily can remember, there has been a gap between her and James which she never felt with Albus. When Lily is kidnapped, will James prove her wrong?

Summary: When Harry died to defeat Voldemort, it damaged him. Some indefinable part of Harry was left behind, leaving him dark and empty. Hermione has done what she could to shelter him, but perhaps there are some things from which there is just no coming back.
Summary: A poem about all those couples whose love was never meant to be.
Summary: "Sirius is slipping, Remus thinks, and it doesn't matter how hard he tries to hold him back, in the end it's no use." Remus/Sirius, written for the LiveJournal community 64damn prompts, for prompt #55, Landslide.
Summary: Hermione returns from Australia to finish her education only to discover one fatal error she made in her absence. She missed Snape's funeral. She has a reason, but she isn't sure it will be accepted.
Summary: Remus’ life has never been easy, but how much can he take before his life lies in ruins?
The story of Remus Lupin told through a series of snapshots.
Summary: A great man once said that it is our choices, far more than our abilities that reflect who we truly are. One of our greatest tools in life is the power of choice. A story of stability, choice and what it means to love. Of how leaving behind what is easy means walking out into what is unknown.
Andromeda Black needs to make her final decision.
Summary: “Guilt brings people together. It’s a takes one to know one type thing.”
James Potter has always been a spoiled, arrogant, lazy show-off. When he enters his final year at Hogwarts School, he’s Head Boy . . . and he’s still a spoiled, arrogant, lazy, show-off. But because of that terrible summer, he’s also guilt-ridden.
Lily Evans has always been a self-righteous, impatient, temperamental know-it-all. When she begins her last year at Hogwarts, she’s Head Girl . . . and still a self-righteous, impatient, temperamental know-it-all. But the first night back — and the murder that takes the entire school by surprise — leave her guilt-ridden as well.
With the darkness that’s surrounding the Wizarding world slowly seeping, at long last, onto the grounds of Hogwarts and into the lives of James Potter and Lily Evans, what comes next?
Summary: If Remus hadn't been born, the lives of the people he had entered would be different, correct? He wouldn't have caused them pain, disappointment... and grief. Most of all, he wouldn't have been the cause of why his parents' happiness was suddenly gone.
Of course, it was all just wishful thinking. He was still a werewolf, no matter what he did.
