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).

Petunia Dursley is enjoying dinner with her family when someone starts pounding on the door. Ready to tell them off for being so rude and refusing to leave when they didn't answer at first, Petunia opens the door to have a baby shoved into her arms and told she is his only family. Years after the great Harry Potter defeated Voldemort, Death Eaters have risen to power and taken over Hogsmeade, Hogwarts, and even the Ministry of Magic. Their marriages announced invalid, their children in danger and their lives hanging by a thread, the heroes of the war with Voldemort must once again take a stand against evil.

*Quote from The Epilogue*
Suddenly Harry was kissing her as if he couldn’t resist the temptation. There was a kind of frenzy to the kiss at first, a kind of desperate need, but it melted into something soft and sweet and gentle, a promise of a future when kisses would never be limited. When they broke apart he rested his forehead on hers, sprinkling a few affectionate butterfly kisses across her face. “I love you,” he murmured.
Author's Response: Thanks! :)
Author's Response: I'm glad you think so!
Summary: London: Four murders have taken place under bizarre circumstances, for what seems to be an equally bizarre reason.
Harry, a happily wedded man with a wonderful wife and a cute daughter, is an Auror at the Ministry of Magic and is now given a new case to solve with Ron and four other Aurors. Incidentally, the four Aurors include Ginny, Harry’s ‘schoolboy crush’; and it turns out to be much more than a crush when Harry sees her again. What’s more is that Harry is working upon a case that seems to connect to him directly. And once again, it opens up old fears: fears of losing loved ones.
Ron, on the other hand, seems to be tired of Hermione. Tempers are running high and fights are breaking out more often than usual. Are they really falling apart? Or can they sort this out before it is too late?
Then there is the case itself. Who is trustworthy, and who is not? Who is deadly enough to murder four people in cold blood?
Indulge into the gut-wrenching action, combined with warm romance and tingling suspense; while I tell you a story of love, ambition and obsession… a story of what those killer instincts can do. EDIT: MAJOR revamping going on, with regard to plot, characterisation, and general style of writing. I would urge you not to read this until I've removed this notice because I wasn't very good six years ago, and this is as bad as I was. *Places traffic cones*
Love the story. Please keep posting. Thanks.
Author's Response: thank you so much! The story's been updated!
Author's Response: Thanks for reviewing!
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.
Author's Response: That's great! cj
Summary: The war has been over for four years and everyone is moving on -- except for one. Nobody has heard from Harry Potter since he left after his defeat of Lord Voldemort. But now, in the year 2002, new threats against his life, a wedding between old friends, as well as a secret connection between his past and present will draw Harry out of his self-imposed exile and towards an ending that he long ago gave up upon. It is a journey about love, life, heartbreak, and the long road taken to get back home.
The story is great keep up the good work. Give it time and more people will chime in. Keep them coming.
Great chapter can't wait for the next. This is one of my favorites.
Please update soon. It seems everybody with a great story just quits. Please don't I love the story and would like to finish it with you.
Author's Response: I am so so so sorry for leaving this for so long. I have an excuse, although I'm afraid it's not very good: First, I was focusing on my other chaptered fic because I didn't have any inspiration for this on. Second, I got inspiration and then my laptop got stolen along with most of the next chapter, so I've had to start it from stratch again. And of course, it's always harder to write a chapter another time when you were happier with it the first time. I haven't gotten that inspiration back yet, but I hope it doesn't take much longer; I'm really missing writing this story.
Keep up the good work. Please post soon.
Very nice chapter. It must kill him not telling nobody.
Great story. Please post more.
Hello, did you quit? Where is the updates for a great story? Its a shame.
Author's Response: Hey, thanks for reviewing! No, I havent officially quit, but Ive had major writer's block since starting school, plus, i just have next to no time to write because of school! I know where Im going with the story and i hope to complete it someday, but for now please just be patient.
Summary: Harry Potter returns to Hogwarts for his seventh year. With Quidditch, NEWT's, and a pompous new Transfiguration teacher this year is certainly not going to be dull! Mix in some Marauders, a couple jokes, and a bunch of good friends and this will be Harry's best year yet!
Nominated for QSQ'a Best General Fic. Thank you!
so far so good. keep it up.
Author's Response: Thankyou for reviewing. Chapter seven is in the queue now. I hope you will keep reading. --ginnygirl16
So far so good.
Author's Response: Thanks for reviewing! Glad you are enjoying it.
It has been six years since the final war against Voldemort. Harry has now joined the Ministry of Magic as an Alpha, an elite class of Ministry employees who work to thwart the traces of the Dark Arts that Voldemort and his followers may have left behind.
In general, Harry now has everything that an adult wizard can hope for – a great job at the Ministry, power, influence, and a most affluent lifestyle. However, all is not well.
Everything has changed since the war. Ron is now in Egypt, working with Bill, and Hermione is no longer in touch with Harry or Ron. How has the inseparable trio finally been separated?
Thanks to all my betas, bling_baby, Bookofsecrets & Colores for helping me put up my first chapter. Mostly to the last two who were patient enough to put up with all my eccentricities.
This is my very first fic on the archives. So please guys, I can use some descriptive reviews. XD
AHH! Something fresh.
Summary: After the Wedding comes the reception. Once the guests are greeted and seated, the meal is served, the Wedding Breakfast.
