Summary: We always knew that James Potter and Lily Evans would end up together, otherwise the Boy-Who-Lived would never have been born, but no one else did until the day they got married. Many people still believed the marriage would end in failure, but the two were deeply in love from a connection they developed during their seventh year. This is a story of that connection.
The Eyes of the Confessor: Fragments (Alternate Book 7) by PensieveMaster
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 3]
Summary: Update (8/5/11): For some reason, prior to the seventh book's release, I had this idea for how I would have conceived the Harry Potter to end. Without giving much away it would reveal that, despite Voldemort being at the forefront of the conflict within the wizarding world, there actually lie beneath the surface a much older, much more worrisome conflict. The story and its title are in part inspired by the Joe Walsh song "The Eyes of the Confessor," though the rest, of course, is all my own.
Also, and this is a side-note, this story was a way for me to get the Harry/Hermione shipping that I believe existed throughout the whole series. While not a romance story, it is definitely a Harry/Hermione story.
Initially, I had written this story out on paper, and was typing it into a final draft on my computer (while concurrently posting it here). However, a hundred pages into the story, I lost my manuscript. At that point, my inspiration for writing somewhat faded, and I abandoned writing the story. However, with the Harry Potter high that I've been riding since the film premiere of the second installment of The Deathly Hallows, I've been remembering much of the story and would like to continue writing it. These are brilliant characters, and writing them can be just as fun as reading them, even when I'm diverting away from what occurred in the original saga.
Let me just say: this takes a very, very different route from The Deathly Hallows. I don't plan to match or rewrite the such scenes as Snape's memory and the defeat of Voldemort, mostly out of the knowledge that I could do no good job in attempting to do so but also because that was not this particular vision of the end of the series. So, it would be best not to think of Rowling's conclusion when (correction, if) you read mine. Hers was brilliant; mine is just a little germ of a story that infected my mind one evening. I hope you enjoy it, if you so take the time.
Summary: Three generations of Potter men being told important news by their wives, in three different ways.

Summary: It's year four at Hogwarts for the Marauders and James Potter has a full agenda. Between keeping up with the rigorous coursework as OWLs draw nearer, studying to become an Animagus along with his best friends, and trying to catch the eye of Lily Evans, it's shaping up to be the busiest year ever.
Summary: Its the school year after their O.W.Ls and the Marauders are eager to start their N.E.W.Ts. But not all is well. Lord Voldermort and his supporters wreak havoc in the Wizarding World outisde of Hogwarts. It seems there is no place safe, except Hogwarts.

The trouble is, these bonds can be unravelled...
...This is The Turning Point.
Summary: I was eleven years old when I first heard about Hogwarts, but my faith told me everything about that school was evil. This is the story of how I reconciled my religion with the truth about what I am.
Summary: We all know Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger met at Hogwarts, became best friends, saved the world, fell in love, and got married.
But did they really meet for the very first time on the Hogwarts Express, or was there perhaps another moment in time, long forgotten by the time they turned eleven?

Summary: I cannot see their bodies, buried beneath the ruins of their life together, but I know they are there. I can imagine their green and hazel eyes, staring into the dark emptiness. It is all I can do to stay upright, filled with equal parts rage and grief as I gaze unseeing at the heartbreaking scene.
How did it come to this?
Summary: As the dawn's light steals over the rocky Portree shore, Oliver Wood can see no beauty in it. All it garners is pain – for the memories it brings him, for the cracks it illuminates in his marriage. Katie's not the woman he thought she was, and as the day breaks, so does he.
Perhaps he is not who he thought he was, either.
The second year has begun:
After a summer without a word from Voldemort the trio began their year at ease for the most part anyway. With a flying car crash, and an incompetent professor, they believe this year will be a dull one. How wrong are they?
The Chamber of Secrets has been opened.
The houses become even more split than ever before. The famous Harry Potter is being blamed because he can talk to snakes, but the other students do not know there are two other Parselmouths in Hogwarts. The Moon Twins can hear and understand the omen whispers and they search for the culprit. Will their secrets and old habits of working alone lead them to lose all the trust they have earned? Or will the trio bond together like never before and solve the sinister mystery, before it’s too late?

Summary: For me, the start of my grand love affair with the Potterverse didn't begin with Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. No, it started with Prisoner of Azkaban because of the Marauders. This poem is about them and my attempt at a goodbye to four people who inspired me. (Well, Peter - not so much)

Summary: What if You-Know-Who was defeated long before Harry had ever been born. What if Severus Snape had a shot at what he died for in the original series? Allow me to give you the romantic "What if?" you all wondered about when reading the original books.
