    Title/Link: Out of Reach by Canis Major
    Rating/Warnings: 1st-2nd years; None
    Summary: His mum's a witch and his dad's a wizard, but Phoenix isn't going to Hogwarts.
    His parents have other plans, and they know their rights much better than Vernon Dursley ever did. It all makes perfect sense to them -- but not to their unhappy eleven-year-old son. The magical education authorities might have an opinion, too, if anyone were asking them. Or is it just that no-one is listening?

    Title/Link: The Ghosts That Follow by Nagini Riddle
    Rating/Warnings: 3rd-5th years; Abuse, Alternate Universe, Mental Disorders
    Summary: Haunted memories are as the ghosts that follow...

    Merope's life takes a different path when she meets Abraxas Malfoy, a rich young man who promises to help her out of her situation. But when she arrives at the designated place to meet, he isn't there, and all she can see is a ghastly green potion beckoning her to step forward and drink.

    Consuming the potion leads her into another world, where marbled structures speak in Delphic tongues, forests hold the mind prisoner, and poisonous bugs stalk their victims.

    But that isn't all. She comes to the realization that perhaps memories and experiences are naught but deceitful apparitions meant to drag her soul down into endless misery. It is then that she must make a decision - give in or simply give up.

    This is Nagini Riddle of Gryffindor, writing for Round 9 of the Gauntlet.

    Luna Lovegood has never been accepted, but remains perhaps the most content person Colin has ever met. As his feelings for her develop throughout their years at Hogwarts, Colin must prepare to renounce the acceptance of his friends; instead learning to accept her and, ultimately, himself.

    Summary: "Neither can live while the other survives."
    She often thought on that - ever since she heard it in Harry's hushed tones. Maybe before that even. Not in the exact sense, of course - she would not claim the powers of a Seer (Merlin forbid). But something close to it, maybe - a strange, half-formed thought; ethereal and not quite tangible.
    She sometimes tried to think about what it meant - she spent many hours puzzling over it, in fact. She always was one to think of all the possible outcomes. And think she did. And imagined and theorised and wondered and dreamt.
    Never once did she imagine this.

    Summary: Love - that's what Albus thinks sets us apart. The ability to love and the power that it gives you.
    I disagree: I think it's hate. Hate is pure, fierce and unyielding. It courses through you like fire and invests you with its strength. Hate guards you from other people - it protects you. If all you feel is hate, you have nothing to lose. You are untouchable.
    Love drains you. It forces you to care about others and their welfare and if they are harmed...well, then it brings grief, anguish and pain that rivals any curse. Love reels you in with its sweetness, comfort and passion and then destroys you with its absence. It is crueller than any curse. It is the Gryffindor affliction.

    Marauder Era

    Title/Link: Little Lions by SexY_LydZ
    Ratings/Warnings: 6th-7th Years/Character death, Sexual situations, Strong profanity, Substance abuse, Violence
    Summary: On a stormy October evening, a letter, a late night trip to the library and a secret conversation lead Lily Evans to discover that there are several mysteries in her life that only she has the capability and the inclination to solve. The first mystery is James Potter – what could turn him from the arrogant, could-care-less boy that she had previously known to someone withdrawn and far away? Then, perhaps more troubling, there is Esther Collins, the fifth year who has vanished without a trace. Furthermore, one of Lily’s best friends, Izza, is seeing a mystery boy and Lily is determined to know who.
    Then there is the threat of war, backstabbing friends and NEWT’s. A disinherited and emotionally battered Sirius Black is the source of heartache for his friends, except perhaps Izza, who, with her own terrifying family, might just understand him. Lily’s closest male friend, Remus Lupin, is hiding a dangerous secret from her. Peter’s girlfriend is screwing him over, and the whole time Lily is struggling to stop the people she loves from coming apart at the seams.

    Summary: Many know Sirius Black the Marauder, but few know Sirius Black the rock star.

    One Christmas morning, Sirius Black awoke with an idea that would change the lives of the Marauders forever. He'd be a superstar whose fame would make him untouchable, but he has a few bugs to work out first. Bugs like the reporter Rita Skeeter who refuses to leave before snatching a nonexistent scoop, his best friend who believes a girl will make the band more diverse, and the nagging feeling he won't be able to balance both the band, groupies, and Order of the Phoenix missions and meetings.

    In the meantime, he's living the dream. After all, what can you expect from a wizard rock star?

    Title/Link: The Sound Inside a Shellby Alice in Potterland
    Ratings/Warnings: 3rd-5th Years/Character death, Mild profanity, Sexual situations, Substance abuse
    Summary: "Voldemort meant little to us then. It was just a name our frightened parents tossed around. They had grown up during Grindelwald's reign - knew nothing but fear. They were paranoid. To us, fear was tangible only in the moments spent considering another loss to Slytherin on the pitch."

    Wedged comfortably between two eras of turmoil, the students of Hogwarts never imagined they'd go down fighting. Life at school was defined by teenage rebellion, tough classes, and nail-bitingly exciting Quidditch games. Grindelwald's defeat was news of the past, but some told of a new dark wizard on the rise by the name of Lord Voldemort...

    But for Alice Emerson and Lily Evans, for Potter and Black and the rest of her class, that was simply irrelevant. The outside world stopped at Hogwarts' gates until tragedy in their fifth year brought it violently to the forefront.

    Title/Link: Love Beyond Forever by mudbloodproud
    Ratings/Warnings: 3rd-5th Years/Character death, Mild profanity, Violence
    Summary: The year is 1979 and the Marauders are out of school and working for the Order. One Marauder is about to get married, one is finding life outside school harder than even he expected, one is about to turn traitor and one is about to fall in love.

    When Sirius Black flew away from the two Muggle policemen with James Potter on the back of his motorbike, he didn’t know he was about to come face to face with the one person who could change everything.

    Abigail Sampson was a shy, unassuming girl when she went to school at Hogwarts. She was friends with Lily Evans, but not the Marauders. She graduated and went to work for the Ministry. What very few people knew was she also went to work for the Order.

    What happens when this shy girl finds herself working with one Sirius Black to discover the truth behind his brother’s disappearance? Could this quiet girl hold her own with the legendary Sirius Black?


    This story starts immediately after J. K. Rowling’s prequel which she wrote for charity. If you can find a copy to read, I would suggest reading it before reading this story. Of course, you don’t need to read it to understand this story, but you may feel as if you missed something in the beginning of this story.

    By the end there will be a slight hint at Alternate Universe. I believe what happens in this story was possible, but it strays a bit from what we know of in canon.

    This is the prequel to my story The Unknown Heir. Though both stand on their own.
