Summary: "A rose by any other name would smell as sweet," wrote Shakespeare. This story arose from a 500-word drabble in a Beta Forum challenge, presenting a character who gained new and startling information about his ancestry and acted upon it. I expanded the drabble into a full story for my Creative Writing class at the local community college, necessarily deleting obvious mentions of magic and changing the characters' names. Thus, Draco, Astoria, and Scorpius Malfoy have disguised themselves as Denis, Aurelie and Silvestre Paridelle, and the Death Eaters are masquerading as Nazis, with a little jiggering of the timeline to accommodate the date difference between the Second Wizarding War and the Second World War.
With its Harry Potter roots thus concealed, the story was well-received by my instructor and classmates; nobody suspected a thing, but you, my readers, will instantly see and understand everything.
Thanks to my instructor and classmates for being my unwitting beta readers. Their comments and suggestions were valuable and improved the story greatly. The story is rated Alternate Universe for the accommodations that had to be made, but I hope you will enjoy it anyway.

Summary: Hermione Granger is in a dilemma. A dilemma she never thought could happen. Least of all to her. During the battle of the Department of Mysteries in the trio’s fifth year, Hermione discovers something else in the Hall of Prophecy. Something involving her. For two years, Hermione kept what she discovered a secret, only confiding in her cat, Crookshanks. After extensive research and several well-thought out plans, Hermione came to the conclusion that there was only one thing she could do to ensure that the prophecy she discovered when she was fifteen would never come true. She had to run. Leave everything and everyone she had ever cared about behind. It was the only way to keep them all safe. Especially him. Five years after leaving her life behind, Hermione returns to England, in a disguise, of course.
In a final attempt at bravery, a stolen kiss and the sacrifice of taking a deadly curse to end it all, Hermione reveals herself, and so does her murderer.

Summary: A penniless thief, a carefree prankster, the school's golden boy, a rich player and a blue-blooded aristocrat.

Everyone always told them that Hogwarts would be some of the best years of their lives, but nobody mentioned how difficult life could be, or what would happen to their friendship along the way. However, despite their struggles, they always remembered this- you'll never have friends like the ones you make when you're seventeen.
Summary: Even in its abandonment and slow disintegration, it retains its power to destroy. This is my Poem #1 entry in the Sixth Annual October Triathlon: Race to Hallowe'en, a sonnet, prompted by this scrap of verse:
Curious, how she tried the window,--
Odd the way she tried the door,--
Wonder just what sort of people
Could have had this house before.
