Summary: My take on the first of those 'nineteen years' between the 36th chapter of DH and the epilogue.
Warnings: contains an unusually-shaped ring, a nosy neighbour, a rude shop assistant, shaving mishaps, thoughtful gestures, threatening goblins, and, unexplained appearances of Romantic!Ron and Romantic!Harry. You have been warned.
Rating is for *mild* innuendo and *mostly* innocent interactions but I wouldn't let my 9 year old read it.
The Wizarding War is over.
Auror training has begun and Harry and Ron find that their lives are centred round London and the Ministry of Magic.
For Ginny and Hermione there is the inevitable return to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Their lives are centred round schooling in Scotland.
Do these divided duos have different destinations and divergent destinies? When, where and how can these parted pairings meet? Opportunities are limited to holidays, Hogsmeade visits and school Quidditch matches.
Nominated for: Best Post-Hogwarts (Chaptered) story - Quicksilver Quills 2012
Summary: Ron, Hermione, and Harry move into a Parisian flat the summer after their final year. Hermione deals with University, Ron struggles with the working world, and Harry learns about some news nobody expected. Mostly Ron's POV.
R/Hr & H/G.
Rated Professors for safety and later chapters.
*** I started this story before DH came out. For that reason it's AU. However, I've tried to make it as close to the details as possible, so you'll find there are canon details in this story. Thank you all so much for your amazing and encouraging reviews (and your PATIENCE with me!), I appreciate every single one :)
Summary: The seventh year of Hogwarts is the end of an era for most students, however, for Harry, Ron and Hermione it is just the beginning of a new chapter of their lives. The war is becoming hectic, the Ministry is in havoc, and the wizarding world is sick with fright. Now Harry has a way of beating You-Know-Who at his own game...but at what cost? In all the mayhem, will Ginny still be safe? Will love prevail through all like they were told or will the war tear them apart?
Summary: With the help of an ancient spell, his friends, and love, Harry embarks on his mission to destroy Voldemort. What will happen on the way? With Ginny, Ron, and Hermione by his side, will Harry find the solution? And where do Neville and Luna fit in all this?
And, as of August 25, 2006, I'm done. I sure hope you liked it!
