Night falls, and four people are out to observe the full moon: Severus Snape, heartbroken over his loss of Lily Evans, Sirius Black, keen to take advantage of his enemy's despair, James Potter, rushing to rescue his hated opponent from his best friend - Remus Lupin, confined to the Whomping Willow - and Lily Evans herself, seeking solitude after her argument with her ex-friend in the corridor. But instead of solitude and comfort in the Hogwarts grounds, she finds out some things she wasn't supposed to know....Severus Snape is lured inside the knothole, Sirius Black crows over his triumph, James Potter rescues his foe, Remus Lupin, werewolf, nearly destroys any future for his human side - and Lily Evans weeps in the shadow of the beech tree, for too many reasons to count..... A more eventful moon than any of them wanted.

Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 24]
Summary: Post-DH, pre-Epilogue. Ron/Hermione one-shot. Ron and Hermione have a discussion following the trio's visit to the Headmaster's office (you know, the one where they talk to Dumbledore's portrait about the Hallows). Fluff and teeeensy bit of angst--really the only way to go with this pairing. ;)
Summary: The battle is over, but Remus and Tonks are trapped in the darkness. Trapped between life and death. Trapped among their memories. Will they find the strength to wake up and find each other or will they be trapped in the darkness forever?
Summary: On the run for nine months, Dean spent his time deliberately not thinking of his friends as he struggled to survive, but he could not control his thoughts at night.
In his final year, Seamus longed for release from the daily torture of the Carrows' regime.
In her room, Parvati had made a list of all the things she wished to do if she survived, but wasn’t sure she could carry it through.
After the Battle, the three of them relax by the lake.
Who knew their thoughts had been so intertwined?

The unbearable pain of separation and pangs of love and angst makes Remus Lupin let go...let go of the dead and those alive.
Summary: It's Valentine's Day, seventh year, and James Potter is determined to make it one to remember. Unfortunately, so many things go wrong that Lily Evans will probably remember it for all the wrong reasons.

Summary: One year that will change everything. Two relationships that are destined to happen. Three words that are bound to impact more than one person. Four boys that are determined to make their last year at Hogwarts as memorable and legendary as possible. Five pranks that will drive Severus Snape to do something he only ever dreamed about. Six years that James Potter has been chasing after a certain red-headed witch, will this finally be the lucky year? It’s going to be one hell of a seventh year for the Marauders.
To the tune of O Little Town of Bethlehem, join the Marauders on one of their monthly nights on the town.

Summary: It's Christmas, 1998. The first Christmas since the Battle of Hogwarts, and, coincidentally, the first Christmas George Weasley has spent without his twin.
Wallowing in misery and dwelling on the very real emptiness George feels, he abandons his family at The Burrow and all its Christmas trappings, and heads for his bare, unfestive flat above the shop. However, someone unexpected arrives to try and remind him that at this time of year, he should be celebrating and doing best to honour Fred's memory in style.

A war is brewing in the Wizarding world. Hogwarts is not the safe haven it used to be. Students are beginning to consider the unthinkable, desperate to save those they love. The corridors are filled with eager spies who are too young to realise the severity of their decisions.
In the midst of it all, the Marauders are closing in on their last year of schooling. James is learning that letting go is sometimes the only way to move forward. Lily discovers that what she was looking for all along is right in front of her, while Sirius and Remus struggle to keep the group together, each in their own way. And Peter begins to realise that he can be more than a tiny piece of a large puzzle, perhaps the most dangerous epiphany of all.
Sides must be taken, a war must be fought, and prices must be paid—some higher than others. Choices are made that will undoubtedly change the course of the future. And from this darkness, the phoenix must rise.

This is the tale of a birthday… A seventeenth birthday, no less. It tells of a present given to a redheaded teenager by the love of her life, a gift that became the best present she would ever receive; better than all past and all future presents. It tells of a present she would never, ever forget.
Summary: This is a character study of Draco in poem form.
