Over fifty people died at the Battle of Hogwarts. There are dozens of stories of loss, betrayal, heroism and sacrifice. These are some of those stories.
Nominated for: Best General (Chaptered) story – Quicksilver Quills 2011
What a touching story! I absolutely love the way you present it!
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. -N-
Summary: Life at Hogwarts is all but cheerful under the Carrows' reign. One of the changes that hurts the students worst, some even worse than torture, is the ban on Quidditch. Dumbledore's Army wouldn't be themselves, though, if they didn't find a way to bring some life back to the castle, even if it only lasts a couple of hours. But can even the best of matches wipe away mistrust and resentment?
This story was written by the Incaff Military Athletic Division for the 2011 Quidditch World Cup on the Beta Boards. It won, too! Our alternate was hestiajones.
Many thanks to the referees, who set this wonderfully inspiring prompt that gave us weeks of drabbling-frenzied fun. The prompt for this match was:
"One Last Match: When Harry was on his extended camping trip, I don’t think his thoughts extended much to Quidditch, but for those at Hogwarts it did. Under the new regime, however, the sport was banned. For the pupils at Hogwarts, this became a focal point of rebellion. They decide to play one last match, an inter-house match, in the spirit of Dumbledore’s Army. The two teams will not be from one house but a mixture."
When are the next chapter coming? I love the concept. The style is very good too.
Author's Response: Thank for the review. All the chapters are now up.
Summary: Two potions. Two plots. Two Marauders. What could possibly go wrong? Only everything--including their lives.

I liked your style. The plot was very intriguing. I also felt that the part in which Sirius compliments Peter's ability to keep a secret very ironical. I can't wait for the next chapter.
Author's Response: Thank you so much for the review! That line was exactly what I was going for, bitter irony. I'm glad you picked up on it. I appreciate the review. Hope you enjoy the next part! ~Gina :)
