Summary: Voldemort is back, but due to Lucius's failure in the Department of Mysteries, the once prosperous Malfoys find themselves disfavored and dangerously close to obliteration. Draco returns to Hogwarts in his sixth year as a Death Eater, wanting to fulfill his mission and redeem his family. Hermione tries to keep calm in the face of increasing danger, but things change when she discovers a diadem in the Room of Reqiurement.

They begin to cooperate with Harry's mission to destroy the Horcruxes, but their journey has unforeseen consequences: for themselves, for their friends, and finally, for two other people they end up saving in the process.
