Narcissa Black and Lucius Malfoy were put on earth for each other: the most perfect soulmate the other could find. But life wasn’t going to make it easy for them…
This is a story of young love, stubbornness, misunderstanding and forgiveness. This is the story of them.
I have upped the rating for later chapters. However, most warnings are for milder instances.
Summary: Hermione is secretive, Ron is clueless, and Hermione's Muggle cousin gets married. RW/HG, One-Shot, Post-Hogwarts. Epilogue compliant.
Summary: Astoria Greengrass has been kidnapped. Draco is so desperate to find her that he enlists the help of Harry, Ron, and Hermione. With a growing list of suspects, and Draco keeping secrets, finding her seems an impossible task. And if they do find her, how will she react to the friendship that is blossoming between Draco and Hermione?
Summary: Before she became a Death Eater, Bellatrix Black was young, bored, and went slumming places no other pureblood would go. What she found and who she met was kept secret. Until now.
Summary: It's three years after the end of the war, and it seems like Draco Malfoy can finally return to a somewhat normal life. He is still tormented by memories, but the last person he would expect to help him just might be his savior.
Summary: And there he was. The one boy she could not stand. His messy, jet black hair was ruffled and untidy and his glasses were sitting crooked on his nose. James Potter was here. With Lily. And all her Muggle friends. At a Muggle ski resort. Could things possibly be worse? Oh yeah, Sirius Black is there, too.
Summary: We fear most that which we don’t understand. Dorcas Meadowes is a journalist, devoted to telling the truth about You-Know-Who.
We fear least that which we have defeated. Alastor Moody is an Auror, fighting to end the war.
Their hearts are full - full of courage and steely resolve to win the war, with no room, they think, for anything else.
But they don’t know that even the most unlikely people can find love.
Warning: You might recall that Dorcas Meadowes was in the original Order of the Phoenix, and that Voldemort killed her personally. If you’re looking for an overwhelmingly happy love story, I’m sorry to say that you won’t find it here.
Summary: A chance encounter in the dungeons results in Hermione finding herself feeling sorry for Snape, who has become an outcast since the events at the end of HBP. She is now of age and a full member of the Order. The encounter causes Hermione to want to help Snape with his spying duties. But Snape won't accept Hermione's help or friendship. But their paths keep crossing. AU in the sense that it ignores DH.
Summary: Pulvis et umbra sumus. We are dust and shadows. - Horace, Odes
The Black family is made of ashes.
This poem, based of the prompt above by Horace, won first place in the first round of the October Triathlon 2013.
Summary: Lily Potter stares out her bedroom window, waiting for danger to attack.
Summary: Shangri-la (shaŋ-gri-ˈlä) is a remote, beautiful, imaginary place where life approaches perfection.
Or, it is where Luna Lovegood finds herself one day, completely accidentally.
Summary: Isolation. Anger. Guilt.
Amos Diggory isn't coping.
Summary: Amid the desolation of Diagon Alley, a tiny ray of hope lay buried. Nothing more than a tidbit amid the sweeping despair of Deathly Hallows, yet it would not let go of my imagination. Had I found the casually inserted pivotal clue that would rise like Nicolas Flamel from the pages of the first book? Or had I stumbled upon another Mark Evans: nothing but filler detail in the opening pages of The Order of the Phoenix, JKR having overlooked that he bore the same last name as Harry’s mother?
So I waited for my little gem to bear fruit, to become one of those climactic surprises we should have seen coming, but somehow overlooked. Only it never came to pass. The death count mounted to a staggering high, the epic moments came and went, Snape’s back story was finally revealed, and still nothing.
So it has lain, bereft and unwanted, among the detritus of a Diagon Alley the Death Eaters had turned into a bully’s playground. But in the intervening years, this rough diamond has become the inspiration for this story, spreading its tentacles into new and intriguing territories.
Although Harry mentions Chocolate Frog as the title of Mad-Eye Moody’s autobiography at the end of my previous tale, The Dark Phoenix, this version of the story goes beyond that. Nonetheless, the sections representing Moody’s memoirs are clearly labeled.
This story begins with events recounted in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and continues beyond the end of the series. I have attempted to conform to canon as much as possible, elaborating only where the circumstances are vague or passed over. It is an interpretation of the events that happened behind the scenes, so to speak.
Summary: As the morning approaches on May 2, the embattled defenders of Hogwarts staunchly maintain their hope. They know that Harry will not fail them.
Written for The Carol Challenge of December 2014, in which standard Christmas songs and hymns are rewritten for the Potterverse. Google Light of the Lonely Pilgrim's Heart to see the original which inspired this poem.

Summary: James is sitting in the common room one night unable to sleep as thoughts of Lily consume his mind after a chance late-night conversation with her.
This is a continuation of "The Game".
Summary: Albus looks into the Mirror of Erised. What he sees is a little more than just socks...
Summary: Ginny is stuck at Hogwarts while Harry, Ron, and Hermione are on the run. Blaise knows that no girl can resist him...
