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.

Thank you Natalie (hestiajones) for doing the vast majority of the beta work on this, and Apurva for work on the early chapters
Squish for Natalie, Jess, Kara and Bob for helping me sort this out.
Due to an archive hissy fit regarding any story with a rating about 3rd-5th, I have temporarily lowered the rating on this story. However, I have NOT changed the content. This story is still a 6th-7th. You click at your own risk.
Inca is south american natives. Aztec and mayans are natives of mexico. Mayans are the southern part, which cover central america as well.
Author's Response: Thank you so much for the informative review. I shall change the offending words immediately. I should know better as my nephew has just toured the area, but really it was a throwaway line.
Mind you, Scorpius would be like me and not know the difference despite his Aunt Daphne visiting. Really he's only interested in the booze she sent him ... ~Carole~
YAY! An update, I've beening waiting for it! Awesome chapter and I most say that finally after so long they finally do it. :-D
Author's Response: Ha ha - yes, finally Scorpy can give into his 'base urges'. Thank you for reviewing. ~Carole~
Lol me too free booze, who wouldn't want that
Author's Response: heh heh. he has a good time with it, from what I remember.
Summary: Petunia sits at her husband's funeral pondering how her family has fallen apart. The last thing she expects is for her nephew to slide into the back pew of the village church to pay his respects.
Summary: Victoire Weasley is in her third year studying to be a Healer. She is beautiful. She is bright. But she's alone. Since splitting up with Teddy Lupin, only one person has come close to disturbing her dreams.
Unfortunately, he happens to be the professor standing in front of her. She knows he has a partner, but she also knows that he's distracted.
This story is a prequel to my Next Gen fic High. It is not necessary to read that to understand this, but reading Lavender, blue - A Gryffindor True might help, although you should get the gist.
Happy Birthday. Ariana (lucca4) You are an incredible writer. (She also left me a shedload of reviews when I deleted the whole of High.)
Thank you, Natalie. You are a stellar beta and a wonderful friend.

Lol I love it
Author's Response: Thank you. I had fun writing it (except the last paragraphs in the last chapter because endings keep causing me angst) ~Carole~

Summary: Lily Luna Potter is the youngest of three and the only girl in the Potter family. She's previously got by with a smile, a positive attitude and a fiery personality. However, things change over the summer and she becomes a shell of the girl she once was.

Summary: Because Angelina Weasley had an irritating tendency to match-make, Oliver Wood had made excuses the last few times he'd been invited to to one of her parties. But after the revelations in the Daily Prophet about his personal life, he rather hoped he'd be safe this year.
But he'd reckoned without her determination that everyone needs some festive joy at Christmas.

Thank you very much to Natalie (hestiajones) for beta'ing this and for being supportive. Thanks also to my flist who have put up with a lot of wangst from me recently. Thanks also to Maple for an interesting point she made in an SBBC discussion about Oliver ...

Due to an extremely prudish glitch affecting the boards, stories rated 6th-7th or Professors cannot be read, at the moment. For this reason I have temporarily lowered the rating, although this is really 6th-7th. You have been warned.
Beautiful absolutely beautiful. Write more oliver wood stories please. Oh yeah finish the story of High.
Author's Response: I will finish High. It's second on my list. Thank you for reading and reviewing this. I enjoyed writing it. ~Carole~
Thank you, is Oliver bi in this story?
Author's Response: Um, well, he's 'discerning' as he tells Daphne. I don't think he particularly applies a label to himself anymore. Although he did in Drowning not Waving. So, I think he can be attracted to girls, but hasn't been attracted to anyone particularly since Cedric - but that was love. (I will write the follow up to DNW very soon as I have half of it written. Not sure you've read Zeitgeist, which is another Oliver story. It's not compliant with this, btw. Thank you ~Carole~
Summary: All Scorpius Malfoy had wanted on the Saturday before Halloween was to spend some time in Hogsmeade alone with his girlfriend, Lily Potter. But Fate appeared to have other plans. Not only is her annoying cousin Hugo Weasley tagging along, but in the aftermath of a violent storm, a body is uncovered.
Working with his boss, Head Auror Harry Potter, to discover the identity of the victim, and the truth of her death, Scorpius quickly learns that not all skeletons are buried underground.
This is a the sequel to High. It is not necessary to read that to understand this, but what the heck, you might just enjoy it!
Many, many thanks to Kara (Karaley Dargen) for not only beta'ing this story, but putting up with the tortuous search for a title.

I can't wait for the next chaper
Author's Response: I do have the next chapter ... but I need to get a bit ahead of myself so there isn't an awful gap between them. So pleased you're enjoying the story. ~Carole~
Omg omg omg omg! Who is it?
Author's Response: Mwahahahahahahahahah - Not telling ... yet. (You might find out in chapter 12, as am about to start that one.)
Thank you ~Carole~

Summary: The year is 1543, and the heir to the Malfoy estate, Lucius, encounters the young Lady Elizabeth Tudor in the grounds of Hatfield House. It is a meeting, he later discovers, of his mother's engineering, for it is of the utmost importance that he strikes up a friendship with the King's daughter. But the Lady Elizabeth has a powerful protector in her governess, and only the highest political machinations can overcome the will of Kat Champernowne.
In the ensuing Tudor power struggle, no one factored love into the equation, least of all Elizabeth.
