Summary: Part 1 of the "Wisdom and War" Trilogy
"Wisdom and War" is a series of three stories that beginn with a missing moment in HBP and go on from then - another version of MyBookSeven.
"Madness of Minerva" is, basically, a character study of Minerva McGonagall. The question is what will happen if after Dumbledore's death she figures out that Snape is no traitor, but no one believes her?
To make everything a bit more tragic it's based on an AD/MM ship, and also features all canon ships - that's why I listed it in the Various Pairings Category.
Although it's based on the AD/MM ship and deals with a lot of MM/SS friendship and trust issues, this is not a fluffy story. Dark times lie ahead. Oh, and there'll be little hints to a secret in Minerva's past, not essential for this fic but for the fics that will follow. And trust me, that's not a nice and pleasant little secret either.
Tonks' world has fallen into shadow. Voldemort has returned, the Order of the Phoenix has risen, and Sirius is slowly drowning in memories and Firewhisky. Tonks needs more than determination to fight the darkness. She needs Remus.
Summary: James and Lily are married and Lily is acting strange and emotional. More so than usual that is. However, James may have an idea as to what may be causing Lily's strange emotions.
Summary: “I don’t trust you, Snape, as you very well know!” Does Bella still have a reason to distrust Snape, even when he returns exalted for his actions in the lightning struck tower? And can Snape even trust himself?
Summary: One last desperate letter tells the story of how humility can find even the most corrupt of souls when death is the only way out. Things always look different in the end, but it goes to show that it's never too late to redeem yourself, to show compassion without prejudice, and to be merciful.
Summary: Hermione mourns herself, along with those who fell...
Summary: It had been two years since the final battle.. two years since Hermione Granger was thought to be dead my the wizardng world.. Thus, being 'shocked' would be an understatement when Severus came across a Miss Hermy in a remote Welsh village, whose unmistakanable brown hair hasn't change one bit..
Summary: When looking for Remus, Hermione, Ron, and Ginny stumble across a Pensieve, and find out the real story of Lily and James, told through the memories of their classmates.
What do you do when the man who murdered your best friend turns up and claims to be innocent?
What do you do when you realise you slowly start trusting him again?
What do you do when you fall in love against your will – with a man half your age?
This is a McGonagall/Snape fic about trust, friendship, shame, and love. It’s canon compliant otherwise; set immediately after HBP except for a mini prologue.
This fic also is my attempt at continuing the at Book 7, so you also have the war against Voldemort, the search for the Horcruxces, and the way they run Hogwarts during that year included in the plot.
Side characters like Ron, Hermione, Moody, Lupin, Tonks, Neville, Augusta Longbottom, Draco, Hagrid, and the rest of the Weasleys get their fair share of the story.
It is done novel style, which means that some apparently minor issues mentioned in early chapters will become important in later chapters. I do recommend you read them in the right order.
To be on the safe side, I rated this “Professors” because it contains violence, sexuality, character deaths, and torture - although none of them described in detail.
Also I now have added an AU warning - my story contains two detals that we will not see happening in "Deathly Hallows". I made the Sorting Hat a Horcrux, and Arthur Weasley will become interim Minister for Magic in my last chapter. Well, I wrote this before those rumors were shot down as non-canon by JKR, and I'd not like to change my plot now - so, sadly, my story has become a bit AU. You have been warned ;-)
Summary: There is no such thing as tommorow,
All there is for her is today.
Hermione lived through the war, but lost everything...
Summary: We all know that James loves Lily, but why? She hardly ever even smiles at the guy and she constantly turns down his repetitive requests to go out with him. So why, you ask, does he keep coming back for more? The answer is simple, true love just can't be forgotten. True love? How can they have true love when she hates him...?
Summary: One-Shot, no ships, mild violence, some strong language, slight suggestion of alcohol abuse.
Sirius Black has been locked away in Azkaban for twelve years, only to escape and be locked away again in the house of his father's, locked away with only an unrecognisable friend and haunting memories for company. The memories can never be erased, the guilt can never be forgotten. But when you have lost everything there is to loose, there has to be something - someone - out there to gain.
a good friend can comfort you...a great friend can understand you...but only a true friend can bring you back
Summary: It takes a lot to stop a twenty-three year old man in his tracks when he’s been walking along stubbornly, staring at the ground. Especially when he’s been pondering how to explain to the Ministry of Magic that he is unable give them the names of ten or more wanted men because of the Fidelius Charm, of which he is under. Granted, this is no ordinary man we are about to meet. No, this is one Mister Draco Malfoy, a wizard with white-blonde hair and soft, grey eyes. Five years ago he was described by many to be “steely,” due to his very pale skin, hard grey eyes, and overall rough disposition. However, we do not want to meet the Mister Draco Malfoy of five years ago, do we? No, we want to meet the Draco Malfoy of now.
Sexual Situations are only references. EDIT: And, I must warn you, it is a Dramione.
Summary: A poem from the point of view of a pure-blood wizard trapped in noble society.
Summary: The Final Battle is over and as expected Harry defeated Voldemort. Its time for everyone to move on with their lives but some are finding it harder than others. Everything and everyone has changed, but some people are finding to move on and some people can't help but hold a grudge.
Rating just in case.
This is my first attempt at writing my own fan-fic so I hope you all enjoy!!

Summary: Three young wizarding folk must overcome the prejudices their world has created for them. Can Draco Malfoy tolerate his former enemy, the irritating Hermione Granger; and then there's Morrigan Flaherty, the demented Death Eater who is favored about all by Voldemort and believes that Muggles should be wiped out entirely--all whilst he tries to keep a cool head and make his change for the good permanent. Hermione believes that using something as simple as Christmas can help her catalyze a change in the surly, hateful Morrigan. And while Morrigan is being forced into the reality that liars (such as Voldemort) do not exempt their followers from their lies, can she avoid other catastrophic changes? A tale of moral questioning, change, and love.
Summary: A Petrarchan sonnet describing Hermione's loneliness in her first year until she found her friends. User name on the Beta Boards is also Colores, and I am in Hufflepuff.
Summary: This is a poem about Ron's last moments on Earth. That's all I can say without giving too much away.
Summary: Albus and his girlfriend are having some misconception-related problems...which leads to a certain injury.
