A war is brewing in the Wizarding world. Hogwarts is not the safe haven it used to be. Students are beginning to consider the unthinkable, desperate to save those they love. The corridors are filled with eager spies who are too young to realise the severity of their decisions.
In the midst of it all, the Marauders are closing in on their last year of schooling. James is learning that letting go is sometimes the only way to move forward. Lily discovers that what she was looking for all along is right in front of her, while Sirius and Remus struggle to keep the group together, each in their own way. And Peter begins to realise that he can be more than a tiny piece of a large puzzle, perhaps the most dangerous epiphany of all.
Sides must be taken, a war must be fought, and prices must be paid—some higher than others. Choices are made that will undoubtedly change the course of the future. And from this darkness, the phoenix must rise.
I hope it will please you when I say that I actually got an account to follow this story... and the cliffhanger ending was very well written. (I can tell b/c it irks me :D)
Author's Response: Thank you, that is very flattering. I'm sorry to say that this story has been put on hold for a while, so updates will be very infrequent :( . Thank you again for this review! xx Ariana
Summary: After the Battle of the Department of Mysteries, Nymphadora Tonks has a dream about her last days at Hogwarts. The memories it contains and their links to her present situation give her a lot to think about. The main subject of her curiosity: what is the connection between Charlie Weasley and Remus Lupin?
Huge thanks to Soraya/babewithbrains for beta’ing this so quickly and so well. It was in rather a mess until she gave me some very insightful suggestions. Soraya, I hope I have satiated your craving for Chonks slightly!
This is The owl of Hufflepuff writing for the Illustration for Inspiration Challenge in The Great Hall. I was inspired by Jess/ToBeOrNotToBeAGryffindor’s picture, “Up to No Good”.
Disclaimer: I am not JK Rowling. I’m pretty sure that you’ll figure that out for yourselves if you choose to read on.
Stupid Remus... Well, he'll come to his senses someday, Tonks... and then he'll lose them again... but they'll come back... just before you both die... wow this is a really really sad story...
You know, I think I really like your writing. Great job~!
Summary: When Poppy Pomfrey begins her career as the Hogwarts matron, the first pupil she meets is one Remus Lupin. From that first day, she knows that she will see him at least once a month, and as she might have predicted, they come to know each other quite well. However, she couldn't have predicted how their relationship would change in the long run.
This is The owl of Hufflepuff writing for the Great Hall Valentine's Day Cotillion. My chosen pairing is Poppy Pomfrey/Remus Lupin.
This was very realistic, I can really see this as a part of the canon universe. Great job, will there be a sequel? I love reading about Remus, and you've written him very well.
