Summary: Keedie Dante has experienced many amazing things during her time at Hogwarts, including the hushed up drama that was the Chamber of Secrets. However, with two overachieving friends and a headmaster who does not even know she exists, Keedie feels that perhaps her seventh year will not be too spectacular. However, Dumbeldore sees her potential as a writer and enrols her in a simple writing course. Here, she meets the mysterious and terrifying Tom Riddle and they instantly get under one another's skin. She is drawn to his dark determination towards some unknown goal and he is fascinated by her, in every way. However, Tom's friends do not approve of Keedie and her unconventional ways and Keedie has many people trying to keep her away from the dark young man as well. Something inside tells Keedie that she can make him better, but even he assures her that this is an impossible task. But she's not one to give up easily...
"He is a dark one, Keedie. Try not to let him consume you entirely."
This story has the characters Albus Dumbledore, Armando Dippet, Moaning Myrtle, Rubeus Hagrid, Aaron Dante, Harry Potter, Ebony Abbott, Minerva McGonagall, Melena Creevey, Ollivander, Gregor Holmwood, Horace Slughorn and, of course, Tom Riddle and Keedie Dante...enjoy!

Hey, will you make Riddle (Stop calling me that shouts Voldemort!!!) fly without a broom like DH? Because that was seriously one of my favourite parts from the book, the way he flies to Nurmengard and confronts Grindelwald (wonder how that'll look in the movie!)
Author's Response: Yeah! Basically, Tom and Keedie go flying around London to get away from Greg and Melena. Next chapter should be up tomorrow or very soon! :-)
Interesting new excerpt. One can almost relate with Voldy after what happened to Keeds and the baby. Makes it more plausible, him not sparing Lily's life if his own Keeds was taken from him. A bit stupid of him though, not anticipating the 'ancient magic'!
Author's Response: His mother never protected him. He judges everyone by his own standards. I'm afraid the epilogue is all pretty upsetting. Not too many laughs. :(
He called Bella 'KEEDIE'!!! Bella will be pissed!
Can't wait for the next chapter.
Author's Response: Gosh darn those slips of the tongue. Next chapter soon :D
Summary: Remus Lupin and Potions class have never been the best of friends. And then he brews something unusual... “It’s like some kind of liquid Imperius! You tell me to do something and I want to do it!” Sirius shouted.
Nice story :)
Author's Response: *Takes a bow* Thank you very much! I'm glad you enjoyed it!
Summary: Al doesn't like his name. Or being named after two oddballs. He asks Uncle Ron, “Why couldn’t Mum have named me instead?” so then maybe he could have had a better name. Well, this is why...
Big thanks to Azhure for beta-ing this!
Author's Response: Thanks!
Summary: After The Quibbler is banned from the school, a group of Ravenclaws answer by publishing their own secret newspaper, The Fourth Estate, and leaving copies around various points of Hogwarts for the students to read. If any of them are caught, the worst wrath possible will fall on their heads.
But that fear has done nothing to stop them.
I am OliveOil_Med of Ravenclaw, and this my story for the Term Challange, for Project Censored.
An intriguing story, can't wait for more!
Author's Response: I'm glad you like the story. I'm hoping it will do really well in the Term Challange. Wish me luck!
Ha, loved the 'girl things' part, poor Snape must have been so embarassed!
Author's Response: Yes, I have always felt that just by looking at a teacher, you can get out of anything if you spot a line you read in a sex ed. book. Snape is most definantly one of those teachers. And don't you believe I was ever above using it!
Summary: When Lavender Brown returns to Hogwarts for her seventh year, she knows things will be hard. Professor Dumbledore’s death has scared everybody, and with her Muggle-born mother in hiding, she makes a promise to her father to stay safe.
But to stay safe she must ignore her instincts and turn her back on her friends.
This is a Lavender Brown/Blaise Zabini story, but also concerns that last year at Hogwarts when the Trio were a'hunting Horcruxes.
Thank you to Laura (bookofsecrets) and Terri (mudbloodproud) for beta'ing the first chapter, Alyssa (Harry4lif) for the second and Emma (Amortentia x) for taking over the reins. And Natalie for the last chapter.

ATTENTION: Because of prissy glitch on the archive, stories with a rating about 3rd-5th cannot be read. I have lowered the rating to enable access, but the content remains the same. This is a PROFESSORS rated fic. Read at your own discretion - the sexual situations warning is there for a reason.
Hey, loved this chapter! I was so relieved Blaise saved her in time and I can't wait for the trio to get there.
It was nice you showed some good in some Slytherins besides Blaise. Daphne and Draco aren't that bad, are they!
That was nice of Sluggy sending some food!
By the way, I forgot what happened to the Carrows. Did they die in the Battle or were they arrested? Are you going to cover any of that?
Author's Response: Well in the book, McGonagall ties them both up in the Claw Common room. So, not sure if they'll feature much. Thanks for reviewing ~Carole~
Amazing story! I really should have started reading this a while back.
I thought Thaddeus came up with a very clever story to account for his wife's disappearance.
I really enjoy Hogwarts fics during when the trio was on the run as I feel JKR didn't do justice to that aspect in DH.
Aaaaaaaand I'm off to read the next 4 chapters.
Author's Response: Thank you for reviewing and pleased you liked the time I set the story in. MMM, Thaddeus is quite a smart man, but ... is he always right? ~Carole~
Gosh, Crabbe is so evil. I'm glad JKR killed him off.
Author's Response: He is evil, isn't he. I'm so pleased I was able to use him as the bad guy. He's not Draco's stooge anymore. Thanks for the review.
Wow! Slughorn sounded menacing there.
Another excellent chapter. I really liked how you brought in the Support Harry Potter party and other stuff from DH.
Author's Response: Sorry, I forgot to respond to your review. Thank you for reading and enjoying the story. I do appreciate it. ~Carole~
Brilliant! And I am so scared for Lavender now, what on earth will Neville be thinking??!!
Blaise overhearing Snape and Dumbledore talking was really interesting. I wonder what he makes of it.
I thought 'Why in Helga's name...' was an interesting change from Godric and Merlin!
You keep dropping these hints about Malfoy being increasingly isolated, very good job.
And onto the fifth...
Author's Response: Sorry, I never responded to this review - so thank you very much and I'm glad you're enjoying the story. Hmmm, Draco. I'm interested in Blaise and Draco's interreaction on the train (in HBP). They don't seem overly impressed with each other do they? Thanks again ~Carole~
Fianally done with the marathon reading and I really enjoyed it!
You really did a brilliant job of tying things in with DH! (this is the thirs time I've said it, I think)
It said somewhere near the end of DH that Neville questioned Alecto's blood status, etc. Is this when they're all going to go into hiding in the Room of Requirements?
Author's Response: Thank you for all your reviews. I really appreciate it. I'm glad you recognised all the canon bits. I know some people find canon dull, but I love working within its confines and tweaking it slightly to suit my story. Yep, you're right that Neville questioned Alecto's blood status and was still showing a cut lip when the Trio turned up - so .... not long now. ~Carole~
Noooo! Crabbe saw the note :( How will she get out of this one???
Yayyyyy! Harry and the gang will soon be there! I wonder if Blaise will fight at all or will he leave with the rest of the Slytherins?
(The above text makes me sound schizophrenic, lol)
Dumbledore was funny as hell when he told Blaise he knew about her and Lavy.
Madam Pomfrey made me laugh too when she thought Seamus was the father and Lavender said '...Merlin, no!'
Overall, a really enjoyable chapter, can't wait for the next one.
Author's Response: Mmm, I think he may have seen the note. Unless I suddenly decide to go all AU in this story, the Trio will be there soon *YAY!* You shall have to wait to see what happens to Blaise ...
Thank you for reading and reviewing. It's a real pleasure to see someone getting involved in something I've written. ~Carole~
Summary: Neville, along with the company of three members of Hufflepuff, make their way through the school corridors in the dead of night so that they can have an important document sent to the Order. But then, they are caught and taken straight to the new headmaster, Professor Snape, so that he can deal with this form of treason personally.
But the way he actually reacts leaves the four of them confused and...still confused
I am OliveOil_Med, and this is my story written for the I Challange Thee thread. Winner of the 'I Challange Thee' Contest!
Wow!!! I love reading fics about what was happening at Hogwarts when the trio was on the run and this didn't disappoint!
Author's Response: Well, I'm glad you like it. The judging for the contest will take place tonight. Wish me luck!
Summary: This story contains an OOC Snape, a Harry with an idea and a shock!
Thank you, Wiflen 07, for betaering my story. Preguel to 'Don't Want To Know'
Summary: Severus Snape has just killed Dumbledore and is thus considered the most loyal servant of You-Know-Who. But his new position as headmaster of Hogwarts leaves him with more challenges than he ever anticipated.
Nicole Shaw never understood why she had been Sorted into Slytherin. Now, at the age of seventeen, the Sorting Hat’s choice is going to lead her into a dangerous situation. She cannot find it in her to accept the new regime at Hogwarts, but she is too scared to take action either.
This is a story about the painful reality of Hogwarts under Voldemort's control. Whilst Harry, Ron and Hermione have disappeared to find Horcruxes, life at Hogwarts must somehow go on ...
I can't wait for Snape to reveal the truth to Nicole!
Author's Response: But where's the fun in that? :-P
Another brilliant chapter!
I was so tense when Lucius notices the Polyjuice and the Imperius but kudos to Snape for wiggling out of that one too!
I thought it was really clever of Nicole to come up with that but Snape was too quick for her!
Author's Response: Well I figured something had to go wrong! Lucius is one of my favourite characters so I hope you don't mind him popping up every so often to cause trouble.
Yay! I'm so glad you decided to repost this! I remember bits and pieces of the next few chapters and can't wait to read them again once they're put up!
Author's Response: Yay - I'm really glad I have a returnee reader already! I'm sorry for taking it down, but at the time I was suffering from major writer's block! Shouldn't be long before some fresh chapters come your way ...
Awesome! I have exams as well and this was a well-deserved break for me after all that studying!
Author's Response: I'm glad you're still enjoying it. I am finally done with Uni so updates should be quicker arriving.
