Rounding up the suspects, there's a bizarre cousin, a friendly housekeeper, a heartless mother, a self-centred father, an arrogant sister and a mysterious brother. Yet, as the story unfolds, lies and deceit are revealed and a tragic tale is disclosed. Everyone finds out that things don't always seem the way they are and people are usually not what they appeared to be...

Summary: Remus can remember it as clear as day. The noise is what he remembers most. Shouting and screaming and the sound of the castle being slowly destroyed around him. The heat as well. Many people don’t remember the heat, but it was there. Sweat dripping from every man, woman and child.
What was going through Remus Lupin's mind on his last moments on this earth?
My version of how Remus and Tonks died. Slightly AU.

Summary: “A friend is the one who comes in when the whole world has gone out.” ~Grace Pulpit
It’s been four years since the Fall of Voldemort, and the wizarding world has slowly returned to the peaceful time it had before the war. Life goes on, and those who perished are remembered by those who didn’t. But Draco Malfoy has found that instead of things improving, his lot in life only got worse. Ostracized by wizarding society, coping with the death of his father, and struggling to shape a new identity for himself, Draco decides to move to London. He applies for several jobs in the Ministry, and is hardly surprised when nearly all of them turn him down. But when one Department grudgingly accepts Draco as an employee, he is jarringly placed into close proximity with a young woman named Evelyn Longstone. That seemingly random placement will turn his entire world upside down.
Summary: Set in a world where HBP and DH never unfolded, Draco Malfoy finds himself facing an unnerving challenge: making peace with Hermione Granger.
Summary: A poem about the one thing Voldemort was missing.
Summary: Severus Snape fell off his broom the first time he tried to fly. He had no natural talent, not like the loathsome Potter, and couldn't really see the point at all in Quidditch.
But then he saw Lily watching a certain Chaser play and suddenly flying becomes very important.
I am not JK Rowling and I know nothing about flying on a broomstick. This is all made up.
Thank you Natalie (thelastolympian) for beta'ing this story in its original form a whole year ago.

Summary: Everyone’s excited for the upcoming Triwizard Tournament, but while George Weasley is excited about it and wishes to join, his focus is drawn more to the Champions' trainer than to the game itself. But while George is trying to catch the attention of a very powerful girl, the Weasleys, Hogwarts’ professors, Hermione and Harry have a bigger problem…Voldemort’s daughter!
Could the Triwizard Champions' trainer have anything to do with Riddle Jr or is it just a coincidence they both appeared around the same time and are both Children of the Dark?
