Summary: The first time it happens, he is fourteen. Sitting at the Gryffindor table, Peter thinks of murder. (What's wrong with him?)
[Peter Pettigrew, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, and the logic of fives. Dark, some disturbing imagery. One shot.]
That was brilliant!!!!
Summary: Was it possible to save two lives in the past without altering history? Was it possible to give his parents a future twenty years after they had supposedly died? Teddy Lupin thought so...
That was brilliant!! I just read the entire story today start to finish, I couldn't quit! Thank you for saving them!! Fantastic job!! (ps I also loved the mention of the former student named Warwick!!)
Summary: DH SPOILERS! Harry is so consumed with his career as an Auror that he loses touch with Ginny and their children until a letter arrives to help him remember what really matters. But is something sinister waiting out there to take it all away? An escape from Azkaban, the first in twenty years, stirs up Harry's worst fears from the past as those he loves are threatened.
Romance, mystery, and drama combine to make this a story you won't soon forget! Set one year before DH epilogue. Completely canon compliant. All reviews receive responses.
THE EPILOGUE IS UP! I don't know whether to laugh or cry as this story comes to an end, and Harry finally figures out where it's really at. (Thanks again to the amazing mods for your rapid-fire response!)
I started reading this two days ago and found it hard to leave it to do other things! Wonderfully written and this has totally filled in that horrible gap that happens at the end of Hallows. The characters are true and the new ones provide a wholeness to the story! Awesome work! Truelly a really great job!!

Summary: With McGonagall firmly entrenched as Hogwarts’ new headmistress, Harry is enticed to return for his seventh year under unique conditions. Aided by Ron and Hermione, he embarks upon a Horcrux search-and-destroy mission using the school as the base of operations. Recognizing that saving the wizarding world from the ultimate evil is a rather daunting task for a seventeen-year old wizard, the Order of the Phoenix steps in to assist Harry on his journey. It soon becomes clear, however, that not everyone has the same lesson plan in mind for our hero. As the headmistress attempts to lay a clever trap to reveal hidden agendas, Voldemort waits in ambush at the one site that Harry is sure to visit.
But before Harry can face his nemesis, he must face down the inner demons that plague his own life and truly grow into adulthood. His activities are punctuated with school pranks, Quidditch, parties, and the requisite amount of rule-breaking that readers have come to expect from the trio.
Snape's back! Love it! So I meant to ask in an ealier chapter, how much of this did you have done prior to DH being published? I'm enjoying this alot!!
Author's Response: When DH came out, I had taken the story as far as the trioís arrival at Hogwarts. Some of the major plot points were already mapped out, though. The more I read of DH, however, the more determined I became to continue to take things in a different direction; namely, to follow the framework of the first six books to the final confrontation. I canít say I wasnít inspired by DH, though, as will be blatantly obvious when you reach the end. (Canít say more without spoiling it, though.)
Of course Snape would be back! To leave him out would be like eating food without having salted it first. It just took me a while to be able to work him back into the story after his tumultuous exit at the end of HBP.
Oh! I meant to comment, that I loved the last chapter alot! Great job bringing in more info on the characters!
This chapter is amazing too! Love the part where they explore his memories of Dumbledore's death. I cried in JK's telling of it and your version brought tears back to me too!
Author's Response: Thanks for the compliments. Filling the back stories is so much fun. An alleged Seer like Trelawney taken in by an unrepentant polygamist was just too rich to pass up. Severus grinding his teeth in the face of her romantic notions made for a bit of farce. A foolish and poignant story in one.
As for the scene atop the Astronomy Tower, Ir17;m glad you felt I maintained the spirit of the original version. It was vital to my story that Harry come to view things with a more open mind so that he would not try to exact vengeance the first time he faced Snape in person, as he threatened in DH.
I read through this one so fast, I had to go back and make sure I didn't miss anything! :)
Author's Response: There are definitely a lot of niggling little details in that chapter, some of which are poised to bite Harry right in the arse. The ride is not over, not by a long shot.
