Summary: After fighting the biggest battle of his life, Harry Potter finds himself in new, uncharted territory. Beginning a week after the final battle at Hogwarts, Harry finds himself with many choices before him. He spent the summer trying to sort out his future with Ginny and the Ministry, but now must find a way to balance both. Ginny has left for Hogwarts to complete her final year, with Hermione, and Harry is starting work as a full-fledged Auror. They both must find a way to make their long-distance relationship work. Ginny hopes to find peace at school and Harry hopes to build his life around the expectation that Ginny will be with him forever. Despite all of this, there is more to the work that Harry is doing with the Ministry then he realises. Will Gaunt prove trustworthy in these new endeavours? Will Ginny and Hermione have a horror-free year at Hogwarts?

He returned with a quiet sadness and a surprising new responsibility to keep him focused. She returned with a misplaced bitterness and the matching position that forced them to work with one another. Yet fear, resentment, and stubborn arrogance kept pushing them apart, even when they were meant to be together.

Summary: Scorpius Malfoy is the Seeker for Slytherin. Not only that, he's the best Seeker at Hogwarts, and it's his catches that win matches. But this year things are different; Albus Potter has switched to Chaser and the new Gryffindor Seeker is his annoying little sister.
This is the story of how one match and one missed catch can change your life.

THIS WAS EXCELLENT!!!!!
i have completely fallen in love with the way you portrayed all those characters!!!
have you written any spin-offs?
Author's Response: Um, yes, I have. Well, I have written prequels about Lavender and Blaise (Lavender, blue, a Gryffindor true) and a fic called Stars or Carousels about James and Dominique. I am hoping to write a chaptered fic that follows on from this and will be more of a murder mystery starring Scorpius, James, Lily (obviously) Hugo, and other Trio characters. OHHH, and Aaron Harper -the fifth year boy that Scorpius shares a dorm with, turns up in Swans, which is a story about Molly Weasley (jnr)
Thank you for the review and sorry for the pimping of ma fics :) ~Carole~
