Ginny Weasley is where she used to dream to be someday. She is being hailed as the next great Quidditch player. She is the starting Chaser on the Holyhead Harpies and is playing Seeker for the first Unified United Kingdom Quidditch World Cup team. However, Ginny has discovered that being a 'Quidditch star' has costs. You have no privacy, and people will talk about you, saying things that have little or no foundation in truth.
Ginny is facing a turning point in her life. She will be going up against Viktor Krum and the favored Bulgarians. She also has a long term contract with the Harpies awaiting a signature after the match.
And there's always Harry Potter, the other part of her dream. Can she or does she still want both of them as the main part of her life?
Summary: "It's like I 'm lost
It's like I'm giving up slowly
It's like you're a ghost that's haunting me
Leave me alone
And I know these voices in my head
Are mine alone" -Addicted by Kelly Clarkson

CHAPTER 3 IN QUEUE!"My name is Elia Shacklebolt. I am sixteen years old. I am the daughter of Kingsley Shacklebolt, an Auror, and his wife, Eliana, who died giving birth to me. I take after my mother in looks, but after my father in skill. I am a sixth-year Ravenclaw and a Prefect at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and I may very well be on the road to being Head Girl next year, if I keep my anger in check. This is who I am, and this is who I have always been. At least, that's what they tell me..."
It started as a dream. A vision of Azkaban, of a woman who was calling out to Elia, calling for her to come and find her. People tell her that they're just her dreams, but Elia knows otherwise--and that's what scares her. She knows they aren't just dreams, she knows they mean something. And she is determined to find the truth. But she doesn't realize how terrifying the truth really is, the truth of who she really is, and what she's really meant to do. And by the time she realizes it, by the time she learns that some truths are best forgotten, it will be too late to turn back...
