Summary: The battle is fought, the war is won--but no victory ever comes cheap. Join Alice, Andromeda, Ginny, Narcissa, Luna, Molly, and Hermione as they discover the cost of war.
EDIT: I'm back! And I am SO SORRY I was gone so long. There is absolutely no excuse for making you wait almost three years for an update. *hides from angry reviewers* The next chapter is in the queue!
I am glad you are returning to continue this fic. I love your take on all of the three so far. Poor Alice no memory but a son that loves her so much. I really love the interaction between Molly and Andromeda, two mothers mourning together. The scene between Ginny and Minerva was a real treat. I can't wait to read Hermione and Narcissa. You do a wonderful job, the stories are well written and moving. Please keep up the good work. Oh and stay away from roommates with guns!!!!!!!
We are all influenced by the actions or inactions of our parents. The same is true of Scorpius Malfoy; he has been raised by an overly protective mother and a father who is still coming to grips with the mess that his own father made of his life. Scorpius knows that he will be judged at Hogwarts by what others know or think they know about his father and grandfather.
At Hogwarts Scorpius will meet:
Albus Potter the middle child of ‘The Great Harry Potter’ and Quidditch star Ginny Weasley Potter. A boy who not only has things to live up to but an older brother ready to remind him of who’s boss.
Rose Weasley, Albus’ surrogate sister/first cousin, struggling in her own way, not her mother’s way, to succeed.
Kaitlin Jones, daughter of Tornados player Owain Jones and favorite niece of Gwenog Jones, who is at home on a broom and lost almost everywhere else.
Jimber Dokes recent immigrant from the West Indies trying to fit his own magical heritage Vardoo with the Western style of magic taught at the school
Thad Vance, the Gryffindor Quidditch captain, his grandfather and all of his uncles and aunts were killed by Death Eaters, maybe Lucius Malfoy
Meanwhile in London, Draco and Astoria Malfoy try to build a new life and legacy by betting all they own on a Potions Shop in Diagon Alley.

I love this story. I think your portrayal of Draco is really good. I can't imagine his life after the war was anything but really hard. Your use of commas is a little confusing at times but I just reread and figure it out. I hope you continue this story. It's refreshing to find a point of view that is different and imaginative. Keep up the good work.
Summary: For decades he has been known as Knockturn Alley's most notorious go-to wizard. Renowned as a first-class potions master and prized by crooks and Dark wizards everywhere for his discretion and endless contacts in the wizarding underworld, he has only ever been known as 'Charlie'. Yet when a mysterious new Dark wizard calling himself Voldemort begins to send waves throughout wizarding Britain, Charlie finds himself befriended by good and evil alike. As his carefully constructed world begins to disintegrate and the battlelines are drawn, this old hand suddenly finds himself at the center of a growing reign of terror, in which his every decision could mean life or death.

Author's Response: Thank you again, eniroc! I have had half of the next chapter written now for two months, but real life stepped in and mobbed me! Good news is that the end is in sight for a series of deadlines with my job that have kept me running non-stop since Christmas - so I hope to get up a new chapter at some point in the not so distant future. Thanks for sticking with the story! :)

Author's Response: Thank you, eniroc! I've been on leave what with Christmas and law school applications due, but the next chapter is in the queue!

I would love nothing more than to read this story however due to the warnings I can't. Even though I'm way of age it keeps going back to the main screen. When I try to click on the print or the individual chapters it keeps sending the warning and will not let me continue. I'm sure this is a good story maybe one day I can read it!
Author's Response: Thanks for heads-up. I have adjusted the rating to 3rd-5th years and hopefully people will be able to read and review. -N-
Summary: Pansy Parkinson’s carefree world was toppled when she overheard her father’s murder and caught a glimpse of the killer. Forced into hiding by the Ministry, she is compelled to co-habitate with, of all the bloody people on the planet, Harry Potter. Can these two live together in cramped quarters without there being another murder, or can they find common ground that had eluded them since they last encountered one another?
Good start. I always thought Pansy was an interesting character and had a story to tell. Can't wait for more.
Pansy has her share of qualities that scream to be put into fic. This is actually the first time I've written her in a main character light, only to find that she and I have an alarming amount of things in common. :/
Thanks for reviewing. Next chapter goes up later today. :D
