After the first chapter of The Philosopher's Stone, I almost abandoned the Harry Potter world–and how unfortunate that would have been. Luckily, I did read chapter 2; and I’ve been a fan ever since.
1.29.2009: Dear readers, I have been remiss. I am so sorry for my long absence, but the “real” world has intruded and the editing process for these last couple of chapters has slowed to a crawl. So sorry, but my beta will be taking her LSATs soon and after that she will once more be able to give her full attention to my story. But you needn’t worry, one way or another, the complete story will be posted. I have even started scribbling the next story in the saga, but I am unsure if I’ll actually post it as I just don’t have time to write regularly…
This story follows the life of Angelina Lestrange, a young witch from a dark family, as she struggles through her first year at Hogwarts. Having been tricked into picking Ravenclaw, she is desperate to avoid the label of Blood-Traitor. Still, she can’t help but notice that the views her family has taught her are not shared by all. As Angelina struggles internally, wizards and witches around Britain are taking sides on the same issues that plague her. Ready or not, Angelina will soon discover truths she never dreamed of and lies whose validity she never questioned before.
A story set in the era of Lord Voldemort's first ascent to power.
