Lindsey Tonks appears to be a normal, almost invisible Hogwarts student, but underneath her is someone far from normal. What the world doesn't know is that Lindsey is the daughter of two well-known imprisoned Death Eaters, and has an identity she must hide from the world. Underneath Lindsey is a girl named Lyra Lestrange, a girl who is meant to be a secret forever. But will it last forever?
*Begins in GoF and follows the series through DH.
**Will appeal to fans of the Black family! Prominent characters are Bellatrix, Tonks, Andromeda, Sirius, and (to an extent) Narcissa.
Part Four Synopsis:
It's the summer after Albus Dumbledore's death, and the whole world is falling to Voldemort and the Death Eaters. Broken-hearted Lyra, unable to return to Hogwarts, must go into hiding with her family. It doesn't last long, and eventually Lyra is faced with a choice: join or die. Lyra's decision comes with many surprises, including a new ally who follows her to the final battle of good versus evil. While Lyra's path may seem clear, she finds herself torn between two sides for the final time, and in the end, despite tragedy and loss, Lyra accomplishes the impossible...which defies all of the agreements she and her family ever made.

It was like a wizard tale. The clever Slytherin helps a hag who later repays the debt. Except that Rose Weasley wasn't a hag, and Scorpius didn't expect to call in the favour.

OMG!! I CAN"T wait!!! You HAVE TO update soon!!! And, I CAN"T wait for the Andromenda Story!!!
Author's Response: I will update pretty soon, don't worry. Thanks for reviewing :-)
HEy!! This is a such a interesting story that I can't stop reading!!! I CAN'T wait for the rest!! Please, Please let them end together!!!
p.s: The voice in her head is Tom Riddle isn't it? But as Lord Voldemort?
Author's Response: *laughs* If you only knew how many have asked me that. As for being together, this story is sadly not AU. So glad you like it though. Please keep R&R ing. :-)
GOD, I can't wait for the rest!!! I don't want this to end, but I also want to know the end!!! Please update sooonn!!!!
Author's Response: Hehehe. Next chapter's in the queue, so glad you enjoyed this!
It's official. Malfoy has murdered sleep.
*A Ron pov outtake to Our Little Secret.*
Love your story as usual!!! I'm sure i'll come back and read the story for the 3rd time!!!!
Author's Response: You've made my day! :)
Aww, I love this story, I'm only on Chapter 2, but I know I love it! Just one unrelated question, where do the potters live? Grimmuld place? Also, where is Kreacher?
Looking forward to read some more!!
Author's Response: Hey, thanks for reading and glad you like it so far. I suppose they do live in Grimmuld Place. Not positive though :D
Ohh!! Now, I'm finished at what you have so far, I'm gonna tell you that I absolutely love this story!!! I want to know more!!!!! I love Isabella too, especially her name, it reminds me of Isabella d'Este, who I also love!!
Also, I was wondering if you're considering writing story about James & Lily (plus Snape triangle), and Scorpius and Rose etc. I have read quite a few stories others have written about them, but I never find them as satisfying as your stories!
Hope you will update soon about this and MFF!!!
p.s: I was just wondering, that if they are in Grimmuld place, it's rather a nice house, maybe a little dirty and ragged at first, but mayber Ginny redecorated the place, so it looks nicer and back to the Black's splendor? I think they should have the financial ability, since she's a famous Quiddetch Player, and he's a famous aurors, so they must be doing quite good, maybe not up to the standard of Zabini, but still above the average middle class. But then again, you probably are planning to write their family situation gradually, so I'm just being silly.
p.p.s: I love how life-like Bilbo is, and it make me miss Kreacher so much!!! maybe you will write him in in the future? Again, love your stories!!
Author's Response: Thanks for reviewing, I'm glad you like the story. It's funny you should ask, but the sequel to this story, which I've just started writing, features Rose and Scorpius. But I'll have to finish posting this one first, I suppose. I'll update soon, I swear :D
OMG!!! OMG!!!!! You're writing Scoripus and Rose!!!!!! I CAN"T WAIT!!!! I hope the capital letters give you a impression of my excitement, but I just can't wait for it to come out!!!!
Author's Response: Yes, I am indeed writing a little S&R, along with Al Potter/OC, but like I said--I have to finish posting this one. Glad you're on board ;-)
The OC/Albus eh? Well, if I'm right, the story would be SUPER interesting!! I just hope the OC and Al pair won't take away too much light from the Scorpius and Rose pairing, since I guess the the OC would be super beautiful due to her genes! Again, can't wait!!!
Author's Response: Better finish this one first tho...:D
Ron knows Hermione said they'd take the lift to allow Scorpius and Rose to walk downstairs without him dogging their heels, but he still kinda hopes to get stuck.
Aww~ it's my second time reading it, and still I had so much fun! I smile almost at every line!! Please keep writing more, you are soo good at it!! x
Author's Response: Thank you! I can't see them getting old and dull, just more mature and sexier. :D
The story is great!!!! Hope to read more very soon!!! I like the story line and your description of character, they all seem quite alive and natural!!! Update soon please!!!
Author's Response: I really appreciate that, thanks!! Developing the characters is my favorite part of writing... it's the plot I struggle with, so I'm glad you're enjoying that, too :)
Thanks for the update!!! Can't wait for more!!!!!!!!!
OMG!! I loved it!!! I think you're definitely getting better at controlling their characters!! Keep up the good work, i'll always read it!!!!
omg!! Your story just getting better and better!! I love the plot!!! I can't wait to read the next one!!!! Please update soon!!!
This is great!! I really think you write better and better as the chapter goes!! I can't wait to read morez90; I really hope you update soon!!!
When I finish reading your first 4 chapters, I know your novel is not going to disappoint me. I understand you're trying to draw a picture of the character by your detailed reading, and I saw on the last review you're a little indecisive on what kind of social mode or etiquette you should use.
Although the novels and writers the last reviewer recommended are great read, I don't think the mood of "Gothic" would be right for the time period you're describe (which is 1933, according to you). The Brontes are all lived during the 19th century, but your period would be early 20th century, the time of change and modernism. This is the time described by historian as the "decline of British Empire and the peerage system."
1933 is the period of the between WWI and WWII. People, including aristocrats who hadn't fought that severely for centuries, are pretty shaken up and trying to adjusting back to their usual idle life. But the idea of changes and independence lingered among them, especially among the young and women, since they have began working in factories when their husband are at war. Even though the aristocratic women did not have to work, the idea and the feeling of independence began to seep through to their class. So it's only natural that Cedrella is feeling that as well. You have to remember Chanel house has been founded, and the liberating roaring 20s ideas are still present.
Maybe the Wizard world is bit slow with the change, but I don't think setting the scene in an 18th century mood would be right. If I remember correctly, Grindelwald is rising or is in power around this time until he was defeated in 1945, the same time of WWII . So I think J.K Rowling was trying to link the wizard world timeline to the real world.
Anyway, sorry for going on for so long. If you want to feel the mood of this period of "aristocracy decline", you should see the movie (Gosford Park), (Brideshead Revisited), (Easy Virtue) (Atonement) etc., all these movies are describing noble class in 1930s England. I know the storyline of these movies are all different from each other, but you can simply study their manner, fashion style, etiquette and language (basically the entire system) around this time. Maybe that could help, if that's what you are looking for.
Anyway, love your story, hope that I'll see a new chapter soon!!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I have been doing a bit more research and I appreciate your insights quite a lot. I am trying to create a balance between not only the Muggle and Wizarding worlds but between Cedrella's parent's generation, who are very set in their ways, and the young people, even if the young people are still manipulative Slytherins. Let me know how you think I'm doing! And it looks like I need to take a trip to the video store. :) Thanks again, Chapter 5 will be up soon!
this is soo good!!! Amazing!!!! I really liked it!!!! I think Cedrella's letters to her father is a really nice touch, and it completely reflect the character's inner senses. I hope you will update soon!!!!
Author's Response: Thanks! the letters to and from Cedrella and her father take me forever to write, because it's not natural at all how stiff they are...I'm glad you like them! Thanks for being such a dedicated reader :)
OMG!!! U finally updated!!! I'm so happy!!!! Keep going, i would love to see some more!!!!!!!
