Summary: 1692. A landmark year for wizards with the passage of the International Statute of Wizarding Secrecy. The Statute and concurrent negotiations in Paris are at the fringes of every wizard's mind as wizards across the globe must change the way they interact with Muggles. But for three young students, a much more important event is at hand: The Triwizard Tournament.
One is an observer, torn between two worlds. One is a determined competitor, willing to do anything to make his father proud. And one is a shunned outsider, his family name fallen from grace.
These Three Remain.

You have wonderfully constructed this story. JKR would be proud! I'll add it to favourites and read anything else your write.
Author's Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful reviews! I\'m very glad you enjoyed the story, and I must admit that I\'m 100% in love with the characters, so I\'m glad you appreciate them!
10,000 points to whatever your house is for not creating Mary Sues. You have original and interesting characters. This are the OCs we want in fanfiction, people! I'll keep reading what you've posted now.
Author's Response: Thank you! I accept the points on behalf of Gryffindor. :)
Summary: DH SPOILERS! Harry is so consumed with his career as an Auror that he loses touch with Ginny and their children until a letter arrives to help him remember what really matters. But is something sinister waiting out there to take it all away? An escape from Azkaban, the first in twenty years, stirs up Harry's worst fears from the past as those he loves are threatened.
Romance, mystery, and drama combine to make this a story you won't soon forget! Set one year before DH epilogue. Completely canon compliant. All reviews receive responses.
THE EPILOGUE IS UP! I don't know whether to laugh or cry as this story comes to an end, and Harry finally figures out where it's really at. (Thanks again to the amazing mods for your rapid-fire response!)
Great, again! Want to know who hit Teddy. Hope the admins don't take so long to validate the next chapter.
Author's Response: Thanks! Next chapter is a combination of fun and suspense. It\'s my own personal favorite and I think you\'ll really enjoy it.
*screams* Good one! I didn't see it coming. I'm glad you update fairly quickly. Wanna see the rest! I loved the Weasley gathering, it was such fun and I it was funny that Percy asked Harry that! I loved everything. I love your story. When you're done with this one, I hope you write more.
Author's Response: The Weasley gathering was the most fun I\'ve ever had writing anything in my entire life. My favorite part of the Bee episode was the way Harry avoided answering the question (Ker-BLAM!) though the answer was pretty much implied (after all, he and Ginny are human, right?). I don\'t actually have another story in mind right now, though if something else occurs to me I will certainly give it a try. Thanks for your review.
Another great chapter. Intense. Scrimgeour is such a lewwzer, lol! Just like Voldy, so blind! Victoire isn't gonna be pleased with Harry when she takes a look at Teddy. Oh, well, that's passion. I'm torn now that it's so close to the end. I'm dying to see what happens next, BADLY but also I don't ever want this story to end. It waiting for Deathly Hallows all over again, darn it. If your write more stories afterwards, though, I might not be so depressed *wink wink* It's what I'd tell JKR. But you be our saviour now!! Amazing writer you are!
Author's Response: I agree that Scrimgeour is a loser, but I think he\'s more of a sociopath than a pure psychopath like Voldemort. Scrimgeour is certainly self-serving (and very self-pitying) but probably not as hung up on taking over the world as Voldy was. Teddy actually plays a fairly significant role in the next chapter as well, as he has a bit of a \"secret\" that you\'ll find out about soon. I\'ve made a good deal of progress on that chapter already, but still have a few loose ends to tie up before I can post it. Sometimes that goes quickly, sometimes I get hung up on a couple of minor plot points, but I\'m hoping it\'ll be up soon. I really appreciate your very flattering words. Thanks so much for your review!
I just read your story this afternoon, all 12 chapters. I was hooked from the beginning by your writing style and how you've kept the characters true to themselves and how dynamic your plot is and how everything fits and it's accurate. I love it. Can't wait to see what happens next, I'm worried about Teddy!
Author's Response: I can\'t believe how worried everyone seems to be about poor Teddy! For a character that was barely introduced in DH, he certainly seems to have a very loyal following. Next chapter ends the suspense, at least on that score. It should be up very soon. Thanks for your review!
Summary: The hunt for Sirius Black is not going well. Two years after his mysterious escape from Hogwarts, Kingsley Shacklebolt is no closer to finding the infamous murderer, and to top it all, rumors of Voldemort's return are seeping through the Ministry. So when Mad-Eye Moody offers him a chance to join the Order of the Phoenix, Kingsley is more than glad to accept...until he meets someone unexpected at headquarters.
Wonderful! It was great! Very good! Very in-character. I love Sirius and Kingsley and Moody and Tonks and Remus and you wrote them well.
