Summary: There is a thin line between love and hate. There is an even thinner line between Gryffindor and Slytherin; the willingness to do anything to achieve their goals. Gryffindors cannot see the big picture, and if they come to a decision to choose between the greater good and their loved ones or himself, they would sacrifice the world for their friends.
Slytherins are different. We know the value of sacrifice, but there is something else that separates us from those who wear red and gold. We will fight as hard as we can, in any way possible, even if it may be seen as unjustified or morally wrong. Gryffindors let their consciences get in the way of the greater goal. We don’t, but no one believes that we can fight for the right cause. They remember us as the evil, idiotic, or simply power hungry. They don’t remember us for what we are; who we are. We’re here to change that.
They will remember us, and they will remember us as those who fought all prejudice and cruelty simply because were were done with it. They will remember us, and the next time they think of a phoenix rising from the ashes they will remember this phrase:
Remember the Slytherins.

Katie Bell is twenty years old and happily working as a consultant and practitioner of the Transfiguration department in the new and improved Ministry of Magic, under the benevolent rule of Kingsley Shacklebolt. She has a lovely flat to herself, an excellent relationship with her two parents and three girlfriends who have always been there for her. However, it's safe to say that something is perhaps missing from her life.
After her first sighting of the loathsome, but now annoyingly rugged, Marcus Flint, negative memories of Hogwarts and the battle that changed everything resurface for Katie and she is forced to face the question: is she really living her life or just existing?
But when someone starts to stalk Katie, she is forced to turn to the last person she could ever have imagined for help in the matter and the question becomes why would someone want to harm her?
And why is this Slytherin, someone she should loathe as she once did, making her feel things and say things that she could never have imagined.
