Patrolling the streets of Hogsmeade one snowy day Ron encounters an unexpected duo and returns to the common room late in the evening with a changed personality. Harry thinks it’s just the effects of the ever nearing Quidditch match but is it so?
Unknown to the trio, a master planner has hatched a sinister plot that is far more dangerous than it actually seems. Will Harry, Ron and Hermione figure it out before it’s too late?
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.
The third story in the Scorpius Malfoy and the Sins of the Fathers series.
Lucius Malfoy took control of the wizarding Criminal organization of England in the second story and has vowed to get revenge on Harry Potter and to set Scorpius up as the next 'Dark Lord'. However, first he must hewn his minions into a weapon strong enough to bring the 'whelp' Potter, his Aurors and the Ministry they serve down.
Meanwhile in the United States, Scorpius, Rose, Albus, James, the Jones cousins (Kaitlin and Rhys) and Geoffrey Grindus are the members of the United Kingdoms under-15 Quidditch team competing on the campus of the Salem Witches Institute. The U.K. is one of 36 countries competing in the first Junior World Quidditch Cup Tournament.

Summary: This novel picks up immediately after the Battle of Hogwarts.

Summary: This story is a sequel to Paths to 9 and ¾ 2017 and Beyond.
It’s been almost one year since the twentieth anniversary of the battle for Hogwarts was celebrated. The good feelings between the Weasley/Potter clans and the Malfoy/Greengrasses had lasted but a short time. When Draco Malfoy had married Astoria Greengrass he’d become Chairman of the Society of Pure Blood Families. His in-laws founded the Society and having the son of Lucius Malfoy as the Chairman had drawn many of the old-line Pure Blood families. The Society had opposed, with some success, many of the modern progressive changes that the Ministry of Magic under Kinsley Shacklebolt has tried to implement. The Society blames the Weasleys as the chief architects of these changes. The animosity between the two groups was never greater.
Meanwhile, at Hogwarts School the students are mostly ignorant of the depth of this feud. They are interested in their studies, Quidditch and romance, and not necessarily in that order.
The story centers around two young lovers that will interact with Harry, Ginny, Ron, Hermione and their children. This will not be a pleasant trip for the Weasleys, Potters, or the Malfoys as their paths continue down a sometime very rocky road.
The World of Wizarding England and many of the characters belong to J. K. Rowling (who I am obviously not.) I’m just happy to be able to play in it for a while.

Rated: Professors [Reviews - 1]

Amid the excitement of parenthood the Potters are made aware of a 'game changer' that Harry never saw coming.

Summary: It is six years since the Battle of Hogwarts. Ron and Hermione are married, as are Harry and Ginny, but a new force has arisen that threatens their very existence. They and the Weasleys will need to call on all their reserves of strength, intelligence, courage and, above all, love as they race against time to defeat it. HG/RW HP/GW
