Summary: Shortly after Galileo's death, a young Catholic teacher must find the courage to teach what he knows is correct.
This is HorcruxHunter14 of Slytherin writing for the Educational Decree prompt of the Summer Challenge.
Summary: Voldemort's thoughts when he attempts to kill little Harry.
Summary: It is a blustery day in Hogsmeade, and Arthur and Bill Weasley are minding their own business. That is, until they each receive letters instructing them to mind each other's business in a most intrusive and rather final sort of way.
But this is not just about Arthur and Bill. They happen to be a small part of a much bigger, much more ambitious scheme that they know nothing about, run by a frighteningly powerful organization. What exactly is going on, and what exactly will Arthur and Bill do?
Written as an entry for the Gauntlet, by Schmerg_The_Impaler of Hufflepuff house (most of the Bill bits) and Neville's Girl of Slytherin house (most of the Arthur bits). Probably the strangest thing either of us has ever written.
Summary: Hermione is Draco's new boss. In this situation comes hatred, arguments, and maybe even some passion.
This was written for the Dumbledore's Hat Fic Exchange in the SBBC. My quote was: "Granger, I really can't believe what sort of crap I have to do for my job." (from a poem by coppercurls) Nikki, this is yours. I hope you like it.
Summary: A Marauder-era fic - this story takes a look at all the characters we've come to love (and hate), as well as an OC or two thrown in for good measure. Follow the Marauders through seven years at Hogwart's, with appearances from the infamous Black sisters, Lucius Malfoy, Regulus Black, and of course the one and only Severus Snape.
There are a bunch of pairings in this story (although romance is not necessarily the central theme) to include James/Lily, Lucius/Narcissa, a splash of Lucius/Bella and unrequited Snape/Lily, and finally, plenty of Sirius/OC. Enjoy!
Over 120,000 reads! Wow! Thanks everyone!
Summary: Its hard to wait around for something that may never happen but it's even hard to give it up, especially when it's everything you've ever wanted.
Mary is in love with James. James is in love with Lily. Why do these two simple facts kill Mary inside? Maybe it's because James is her best mate or because he is the only one that really knows her. Or maybe it's just the fact that she isn't the girl for him when she is positive he is the guy for her.
I would like to thank butter_beer_drinker for the title, laceymoibella for the chapter title, ix3thehpseries for being my advanced reader, MistressOfTime for helping me in the Excerpts page, Mistletoe and xhalyleexblackx for help in the character clinic with Mary. And of course last but not least my lovely beta, who also helped in the character clinic, th_poet14, for whom without this story could not be possible.
Rating is for later chapters.
Excerpt From Chapter Two: Running
In my last class of the day, which was Ancient Runes, Amos Diggory took me aside after class and asked me to go on a walk with him.
Amos and I are mates with reservations. He sits next to me in most of my classes and he's a good for a laugh. We just aren't close. Mostly due to me. I may complain about having no friends, but I do it to myself. I think we all sabotage ourselves, in the end.
Anyways, hanging around with each other after class seemed like a violation of our timid relationship. I did want to, I guess. Nevertheless, I was nervous about accepting the invitation. What if it meant something more, than just a simple walk between friends? I'm not very fanicable so that most likely wasn't the case. Still, the chance for a misunderstanding to occur was one I wasn't willing to take.
I don't date. Mostly because I'm way too hung up on James to consider someone else in that way. Partly because I will never be able to trust a man I don't know inside and out. I'm not exactly worth chasing, either. Lily or Isabella merit chasing after. The two or three blokes that asked me out didn't really care that I said no. They weren't even close to being persistent. With good grace, they moved on.
While I was having this major internal dilemma in my head, Amos was patiently waiting for my reply.
