Summary: After Sirius’s death, Harry is distraught. The people around him watch as he tries to suffer on his own. Hermione knows that he will try to push those he loves away to ‘protect’ them. She won’t let that happen. She wants Harry to have as normal a life as possible but realises that without Sirius that will never happen. In her summer reading Hermione comes across a spell that could help Harry be happy. She is going to save Sirius. After talking with Dumbledore she travels back in time to warn Sirius of the events that would lead to his death but she goes back as much further than intended: twenty years in the past. Now she has to fulfil the task bestowed upon Harry in her own time. Fate isn’t as kind as she’d hoped, however, and she starts to fall for Sirius and his rebellious ways. Can she keep the matters of the heart separate from her mission? A Sirius/Hermione fiction

very dark prologue, but it was good and the storying seems promising... if you do what your summary says, it should be really good. i look forward to the next chapter. you write really well though.
Author's Response: Thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed it. The second part to the Prologue is on its way! Romantic xx
Summary: Draco ought to have expected he'd end up dying facedown in an alley, but nothing could have prepared him for the events or the friendships that would follow.
Draco/Neville, with references to previous Draco/Harry and Neville/Harry, as well as references (nothing explicit, merely allusions) to non-consensual memories.
Beta'd by the inestimable Soraya, to whom I owe at least three tonnes of baked goods by now.
