Summary: From the ancient and noble house of Black to the obscurity of being Muggleborn, seventh year just promised to be another school year, although their last. Andromeda is testing her boundaries and the limits placed upon her. She's rebelling a bit from the ideals that she was brought up with. Ted is just living in the moment, still trying to decide what he wants to be. Fighting with habitual messiness and lack of organization, the cheerful, happy-go-lucky Hufflepuff soon finds himself in the midst of something he hadn't expected. Two unlikely characters, a spark of life, and the awkwardness of repeated encounters leads to more than they expected out of their seventh year.
I'm sorry for the long wait for the next chapter. It's finally finished. I graduated high school in 2010 and then entered college. It was quite a stressful time and quite the transition. I also lost the chapter once when my computer crashed. I had struggled with it for so long (writer's block) and when it was almost done, there it went into technological oblivion. I was so frustrated, I couldn't bring myself to try rewriting it until recently.
Lindsey Tonks appears to be a normal, almost invisible Hogwarts student, but underneath her is someone far from normal. What the world doesn't know is that Lindsey is the daughter of two well-known imprisoned Death Eaters, and has an identity she must hide from the world. Underneath Lindsey is a girl named Lyra Lestrange, a girl who is meant to be a secret forever. But will it last forever?
*Begins in GoF and follows the series through DH.

Part Four Synopsis:
It's the summer after Albus Dumbledore's death, and the whole world is falling to Voldemort and the Death Eaters. Broken-hearted Lyra, unable to return to Hogwarts, must go into hiding with her family. It doesn't last long, and eventually Lyra is faced with a choice: join or die. Lyra's decision comes with many surprises, including a new ally who follows her to the final battle of good versus evil. While Lyra's path may seem clear, she finds herself torn between two sides for the final time, and in the end, despite tragedy and loss, Lyra accomplishes the impossible...which defies all of the agreements she and her family ever made.
Three years later, the fic has been completely finished! Enjoy reading it without having to wait for new chapters. Thanks to those who patiently waited and faithfully reviewed!
Rose was a Weasley. She never gave Scorpius Malfoy a second glance. They were sworn enemies, even though they’d barely even spoken to each other. But sometimes all it takes for love to blossom is a Potions lesson, a few snide remarks and a dropped book.
Two people. Two entirely different worlds that are suddenly intertwined.
Summary: For once in her life, Hermione is faced with a problem she does not know how to solve...
Summary: Ten years have elapsed since Dumbledore's death and McGonagall has Hogwarts back on its feet again. Hermione and Malfoy both teach at the school. But when a new teacher is hired to teach Defense Against the Dark Arts, everyone seems to feel that they've met him before. A story of mystery, passion, friendship, and jealousy… not to mention that Harry Potter has been missing for ten years and Voldemort is dead. (All violence is mild).

Summary: Growing up together, Sirius and Remus formed a bond that even their two other best friends couldn’t understand. Then something terrible happened and both of their lives shattered to the ground around their feet. Fourteen years later, they are reunited and their worlds are turned upside down, however different their worlds had become.
The missing scenes of Order of the Phoenix.
Summary: Perhaps Dolores Umbridge didn't just take Moody's eye and stick it on her door because she wanted to spy on her employees. Perhaps Dolores Umbridge wasn't just wearing Salazar's locket because she relished the feeling of power the Horcrux instilled in her. Perhaps there is more to this woman's story than what it might first appear to be.
This is a story of differences, similarities, and love -- a story that goes beyond what the eye can see.
Summary: We all know that Lily and James fell in love after years of fighting ... but what about the years before that? Why did they hate each other so intensely? What caused them to argue so much?
Well, those are some of the questions I set out to try and answer!Follow Lily and James (or Evans and Potter as they like to call each other) through their seven years at Hogwarts; one chapter per year, and maybe we'll find the answers to some of these questions.
Summary: Ginny lures Hermione to do some sneaking about late one night, straight into mischief. Little do they know, a sneaky Slytherin sees it all...
Summary: That night defined him.
For Harry Potter, the battle never ended. It haunts his dreams, it haunts his waking hours. Drowning his sorrows in the intoxicating warmth of firewhiskey, his engagement to a girl he thought he loved but no longer knows is falling apart.
I know, I know...I'm the most wondeful person you've ever met.
Hermione Granger's life wasn't going according to plan. The boy she thought she loved can't seem to catch onto the fact that they are more than simple friends; her best friend is lost to darkness and depression.
What do you do when life keeps throwing you curves? Follow two people who attempt to dance around them...and wind up in each other's embrace.

08/23/08: Chapter 22 up.
Summary: Hermione Granger never really recovered from Ron Weasley’s death. She fell into bed with another man, but never fell out of love with her former fiancé. Unfortunately, the other man is Harry Potter, whose understanding as a friend can’t really reconcile with his desire as a lover.
And all of that mess was eight years ago. Now, Hermione’s be left in charge of Hogwarts as all the Professors with any sense abandon ship. It’s always been her haven, now she must be its savior. But can she pull it off, and at what cost to her own future? Or past? She has to contend with the students—the staff—Ron’s child—and then there’s that pesky Defense Against the Dark Arts position that needs filling once again. Of course, there’s only one man for the job, and he owes her no favors.
What is a story without a scandal?
Underneath every burn hole on the tapestry of the Black family tree, there is a story, and underneath every story, there is a scandal.
In 1924, the Blacks were the most powerful family of the Wizarding World. They were greedy, back-stabbing, malicious, and power-hungry. And Cedrella was no exception. She was her father's favourite daughter; the pride of the Blacks, and it has earned her a conceited nature like no other.
But during her seventh year at Hogwarts, her life begins to become a little more clear, her family a little more conniving. She is arranged to wed the infamous Abraxus Malfoy and has people watching her every move to make sure she follows through. It makes it even more difficult when Septimus Weasley, a blood traitor and fellow classmate, starts to convince her, that for once in her life, she could have what she wanted.
A scandal forms between the two; a forbidden love between Black and Weasley behind the walls of Hogwarts. If they are found out, their lives will be ruined. But even under the opposition, what a Black wants...
a Black gets.
It was full moon when the Dark Lord sealed a part of his soul within a magical amulet, and then broke it in half. One half was left to the faithful werewolves to guard. The other half was tossed into the impenetrable depths of time where no one but him could get it. When the first half has been found, the Order of the Phoenix selects Hermione Granger to go back into the past to search for the missing piece. What is waiting for her is a brutal task that will test her beyond her limits, and an undying love that extends beyond the boundaries of time.
No werewolves were harmed in the making of this story.

Summary: Harry and Ginny find a portrait tucked away in the Room of Requirement.

It is a painting of a couple who were once in love, and who were married at Hogwarts many years past. But fate intervened, and a tragic loss separated them. This is their story, a portrait of love lost – and found.
