    Another Slytherin victory! That means the answer must be...

    Wands!

    In His Hollow Eyes ends with Hermione raising her wand to kill Harry, and the other two are rather obvious

    All three protagonists are facing the death of someone they loved.

    As of this moment in time, all three have a review count that is a multiple of 2. Plus, they go up in doubles, so
    A Lightness - 2
    Halos- 4
    Through the Veil - 8

    The connection is Gryffindors

    1) Marauders and the Draft of Living Death
    2) Their Last Chance - ToBeOrNotToBeAGryffindor
    3) Sleeping Beauty - Madame Marauder

    will return with less tenuous connection ... possibly.

    Each story features the Draught of the Living Death?

    Beautiful banner by the lovely Pooja/Ginny Weasley Potter.


    Keep calm and carry on my wayward son.

    Wow, you guys are good. I will have to think of something else.

    All three stories involve unsuccessful relationships:
    The Muggle mother of Remus Lupin leaves his father.
    Hermione declines Viktor's romantic overtures.
    Eileen Prince has an unhappy marriage with Tobias Snape.

    All three stories mention some historical background:
    The history of the plague village where the Lupin family lives.
    The reference to Grindelwald.
    The reference to the Brothers Grimm and the magical historical basis of fairy tales.

    (be prepared for some extremely tenuous suggestions)

    Each story features an unexpected visitor:
    Dumbledore visiting the Lupins
    Krum visiting Hermione
    Prince Phillip visiting Aurora

    All three feature forests:
    The Lupin cottage is in a forest
    Hermione and Krum walk towards the Forbidden Forest
    Phillip and Aurora meet in a forest

    All three feature magical creatures:
    Fawkes is mentioned as being in Dumbledore's office
    House-Elfs prepare Hermione's breakfast (and Hagrid mentions the giant spiders)
    A House-Elf tells Phillip that Aurora has fainted

    ...that's enough wild speculation for now, I think

    Fenella


    Thanks to majestic_ginny/Nadia for my beautiful banner & avvie!

    It's great to see more participants again! And once again we have a new victor because the answer is...

    Draught of the Living Death!


    Soraya takes this round for the Claws!

    Bonus points to Fenella with the unexpected visitors.
