I would also appreciate if NikkiSue/Nicole could mod this for me :]
In times of peace, tales of strife and angst tend to fall out of favor with the masses, but stories of happy endings and the concept of everything turning out all right don’t often make for good reading. There are rare occasions, though, when both can be met with equal accord and form a bond in the written word.
The first sentence in the Charles Dickens classic, A Tale of Two Cities, simply states that ‘It was the best of times; it was the worst of times.’ An anonymous writer sent in a letter to Roxanne Weasley’s weekly featurette in the Daily Prophet, telling the story of his father’s murder and his journey to recovery, which seemed to be the incarnation of that very line. Sometimes, it takes a loss for one to truly appreciate what one has in life and even in death.

Excerpt from Prologue
It cried out of the womb, but minutes after it had adjusted to the warm air of the orphanage, it quieted. A half an hour passed while they cleaned mother and child, rinsing the dried blood and changing the white sheets of the bed. Midnight drew closer. When they were through, Abbey helped wrap the baby in a dark blue blanket. It looked healthy, though pale. But as it gained strength, the mother on the bed seemed to lose strength. With care Abbey handed the bundle to her, placing it in her weak arms.
“His name,” Merope gasped, “Tom Marvolo Riddle… Tom’s his papa’s name; Marvolo his grandpapa’s… he would’ve wanted…” and trailed off, her eyes fluttering.

Summary: Grand sweeping AU. What if there was no Harry Potter? No “Chosen One” to stand between the Dark Lord and his quest to rule the world? This is a question that one rogue Death Eater set into motion and, in another frame of time that was torn from our own, it has been answered none too prettily. It is in this world that three heroes must unite to salvage the remains of humanity’s goodness left behind in the whirlwind of violence and oppression that have scarred it so deeply.
Callie Conleth is a beautiful, brilliant, and charming young witch whose seemingly pureblood heritage grants her an enormous blanket of protection while she works as a spy for the Order of the Capricorn with her partner, Jerry. This blanket, however, did not save the person she loved most, her elder—werewolf— brother, Gary, from “disappearing” when the Dark Regime conquered North America. Nor has it afforded her any peaceful sleep when she knows how all of her Muggle and Muggle-born neighbors have mysteriously vanished as well. Always thinking one-step ahead, Callie acts with fire running in her veins.
Mel Cúchulainn, childhood friend of both Callie and Jerry, is a Dragon Rider who, thanks to the treaty the Rider Tribes have signed, has kept on the outside of the great wizarding war. A blind eye is not something that settles well with the fierce, skilled, and tenacious Mel—or many other Riders either—and she, along with her Dragon, Chance, finds herself in a unique position to help change the Tribes’ minds. Cool headed and deadly, Mel fights with all the might of her soul.
Jerry Moore also finds nothing for himself in the pureblood credo that the Dark Regime holds. Brave, intuitive, and jovial to most people, Jerry’s smile hides a sensitive young man who cannot accept a world that offers little to no protection for not only helpless humans but also elves, centaurs, and other so-called “half-breeds” persecuted beneath the new rule. With a chivalrous intent to defend those in need, Jerry always looks with the inner eye of his heart.
The winds of change are blowing and whether for bad or good only time will tell. What is certain, however, is that these three friends will be very close to the eye of the storm as it rages. They are unique magicians bound together by the past, love, and fate, but is even the steely resolve of the young a match for an army of Death Eaters? With hope such fragile thing in this war-ravaged world is mankind lost without a “Chosen One” to lead the way? Or can fire, strength, and sight be found before it’s too late? The path is dark and painful but does that mean our heroes cannot travel it? Find out the answers to these questions and more in: Intus Temporis Infractus.

CHAPTER THREE IN THE QUEUE, Excerpt:
“As I was saying,” Lily continued, “Professor Goone...well, he hasn’t moved for the last twenty minutes, not even with all this noise.”
Peter breathed in, heavily. “You don’t think he’s dead, do you?”
“Shouldn’t we...I don’t know, try to wake him up?” she suggested, ignoring Peter’s remark.
“Are you mad?” exclaimed Sirius. “Why would you do that? He’s having a jolly good time sleeping; we’re having a jolly good time talking. Everybody wins.”
Lily didn’t even spare a glance at Sirius; instead she kept her eyes focussed on Remus. “So, what do you think?” she asked him.
Remus shrugged. “I’m not sure–wouldn’t he feel embarrassed that we caught him sleeping in class if we wake him up?”
“Right,” said Sirius. “We’d hurt his feelings!”
Summary: The war has been over for four years and everyone is moving on -- except for one. Nobody has heard from Harry Potter since he left after his defeat of Lord Voldemort.

It is a journey about love, life, heartbreak, and the long road taken to get back home.
