We are all influenced by the actions or inactions of our parents. The same is true of Scorpius Malfoy; he has been raised by an overly protective mother and a father who is still coming to grips with the mess that his own father made of his life. Scorpius knows that he will be judged at Hogwarts by what others know or think they know about his father and grandfather.
At Hogwarts Scorpius will meet:
Albus Potter the middle child of ‘The Great Harry Potter’ and Quidditch star Ginny Weasley Potter. A boy who not only has things to live up to but an older brother ready to remind him of who’s boss.
Rose Weasley, Albus’ surrogate sister/first cousin, struggling in her own way, not her mother’s way, to succeed.
Kaitlin Jones, daughter of Tornados player Owain Jones and favorite niece of Gwenog Jones, who is at home on a broom and lost almost everywhere else.
Jimber Dokes recent immigrant from the West Indies trying to fit his own magical heritage Vardoo with the Western style of magic taught at the school
Thad Vance, the Gryffindor Quidditch captain, his grandfather and all of his uncles and aunts were killed by Death Eaters, maybe Lucius Malfoy
Meanwhile in London, Draco and Astoria Malfoy try to build a new life and legacy by betting all they own on a Potions Shop in Diagon Alley.

In memory of my Father Horace McConnell 1934-2010
Growing up fully immersed in the early sixteenth century English aristocracy, all Anne Boleyn ever wanted was the chance to make her own choices. When she is suddenly thrust into the magical world of wizards and witches, her life is forever altered.
The seventh son of a seventh son sifts through papers on his desk in the Headmaster’s Office. His cousin, the six son of a six son, toils in the shadows bring his brethren down. They both know that the support of Anne Boleyn will be essential.
This is the tale of Anne Boleyn, her efforts to preserve justice in the face of adversity, and her influence on society that continues to this day.
At the beginning of this tale, one may wish to note that Anne has five fingers on her right hand.
Everything is not what it seems.This story is down for revisions. You can still read the prologue, though.
I know why he acted like that, knowing his daughter a witch, he gain power and be promoted.
Author's Response: Hmmm, not necessarily, but you're on the right track! Peace, Virgil
Author's Response: Thank you! ~Virgil
All Teddy Lupin had ever wanted was to be the kind of man his godfather was. He even followed in Harry's footsteps and became an Auror.
Harry wanted nothing more than to be the father that Teddy would never have, but work and obligations always seemed to get in the way. Before he knew it, Teddy was all grown up. How had he missed all those precious moments? He knew he had to make up for it somehow.
After all, they had all the time in the world, right?
This fic WON a 2011 Quicksilver Quill Award: Best Post-Hogwarts Story
You made a mistake, you said that teddy just turned ten or he was ten how can he be Hogwarts if he's ten.
Author's Response: It wasn't a mistake. Teddy was ten and almost eleven, hence nearly ready to start Hogwarts.
In the epilogue it says that Tebby would have dinner with the Potter's 4 times a week. I don't remember which web site but its say Harry had a good relationship with Teddy. He also got along with lily pretty well.
I know what the epilogue says. You may also notice that, when Teddy enters the Auror academy, he's 18. Harry realised that he had made a lot of mistakes and that is when Teddy started coming over all the time, as portrayed when Harry told him to come over as often as he liked. And I didn't say anywhere that they had a bad relationship, just that it didn't play out the way either of them would have liked. Harry felt like he had done badly, but when they were together, it had always been good.
I'm guessing you didn't like the story, considering you haven't really had anything nice to say about it thus far. I really hope that's not the case, because to date, this is one of my more well-received and well-written pieces. I do want that you got some nugget of enjoyment out of it.
In her seventh year, Katie Bell knew what it was like to fear death. A year later, she learnt what it was like to see it in front of her. Nothing she had ever experienced had prepared her to deal with the aftermath of that. And then he came.
Caught in a whirlwind of Quidditch, heartbreak, and a rivalry, Katie struggled with her jumbled mess of feelings, one of which she hadn't expected but was growing certain that she could never live without.
Oh my freaking Salazar! This story WON TWO 2011 Quicksilver Quill Awards: Best Post-Hogwarts Story and Best Non-Canon Romance Story. *flail*
This (late) update was brought to you by the (belated) birthday of the ever-lovely Hannah / h_vic. She is a star and an excellent friend!
Glad you liked it. Thanks for reading as always.
Omg I'm crying. Awesome chapter, but sad. I love it.
Author's Response: No one feels worse about it than I do, considering I knew it was going to happen from the beginning, but to think that Katie could have such a run-in with a mega-powerful piece of dark magic and come out of it without any future consequences is not probable at all. This was actually the least horrible of afflictions I came up with, to be honest. I'm glad you love the story, and stay tuned next week for an update. ~Jess
Omg write more and more frequent.
No worries. The next chapter just went into the queue and should be out in a few days. Thank you for reading, and I hope you enjoy the rest of the story.
Its pathetic that I'm always checking for an up date, but I don't care I absolutely love this fan fic. Please do write more for the sake of your fans.
Oh, I so get the need to check for updates. I'm actually like that myself, constantly checking my mail to see if my next chapter has been validated so I can post a new one.
I'm really glad you enjoy the story, and the idea that i have fans makes me giggle madly. Thank you for that. :)
I'm glad you like it. After the project I'm working on is done, watch this space for updates. :D
I'm planning on it. I'm glad you enjoy the story so far. Cheers!
omg awesome write more please. Well Katie first wasn't bad. Lol lucky bitch. Oliver is such a sweetheart.
Well, Katie's first time couldn't suck, because I just can't allow that. Plus, Oliver loves her and wants everything to be perfect. Besides, no one wants to read about bad sex anyway, lol.
Thanks for reading and reviewing. It makes me ever so happy. :D
P.S. -- New chapter in a few days or so. Stay tuned!
I can't wait for the next chapter
Be patient (it's already written). Good things are to come.
Wow what an ass!!!
Hehe, Brandon is a special brand of jerk, isn't he?
Thanks for reading. :)
Summary: I was eleven years old when I first heard about Hogwarts, but my faith told me everything about that school was evil. This is the story of how I reconciled my religion with the truth about what I am.
WOW I LOVE IT. WRITE MORE!
Summary: Brothers were strange creatures.
For as long as Lily can remember, there has been a gap between her and James which she never felt with Albus. When Lily is kidnapped, will James prove her wrong?
A story about the discovery of what family really means.
I'm bit confuse in your story James and Albus are two apart? And James and Lily are five year apart?
Isn't James and Albus just one a part, Albus and Lily two year part. Then James and Lily are three yrs apart. Beside that little confusion I like it.
Author's Response: I may have not been completely canon-compliant with the ages... as far as I knew, there are 2 school years between each of the children. For the purposes of my story, I have written it that James is old for his year and Albus young for his, so there are nearly 3 years between them, and Lily is a year and a half younger than Albus. As far as I remember it doesn't say anything else in the Epilogue of DH, but I might be wrong. I'm glad you liked it otherwise :). Thanks for reviewing.
Summary: A look at moments of Ron and Hermione's life through the years. The narrative alternates between their two POV.

Beautiful absolutely beautiful
Author's Response: Wow, thanks!
Summary: It's Christmas, 1998. The first Christmas since the Battle of Hogwarts, and, coincidentally, the first Christmas George Weasley has spent without his twin.
Wallowing in misery and dwelling on the very real emptiness George feels, he abandons his family at The Burrow and all its Christmas trappings, and heads for his bare, unfestive flat above the shop. However, someone unexpected arrives to try and remind him that at this time of year, he should be celebrating and doing best to honour Fred's memory in style.
