After loving the books for years, I've recently wandered into the Potterverse. I've got a degree in writing, and am currently attempting to get into graduate school for more of the same. I'm also a multi-fandom writer who has a muse with an itchy foot; fanfic is my fun writing. My favorite hobby, aside from fanfic, is restoring My Child dolls from the 1980s and dressing them.

Post OotP. Harry must deal with the loss of his Godfather, Hogwarts gets a new Defense Professor with more than a few secrets, and Voldemort watches from the shadows, awaiting a moment to strike. Just a typical year for the Boy-Who-Lived, really...

Hermione's life is a mess. She's shunned wizardkind. Harry's dead. Ron doesn't love her. All she has left of the wizarding world are some photographs of her, Harry, and Ron from school. But when she dreams of the night that they stopped Voldemort, she feels the urge to run up and look at the photographs. And is surprised by what she finds.

Upping the rating because of mild swearing. Dirty words.

Takes place immediately (IMMEDIATELY) after Book 5. What happens if Mad Eye's warning at King's Cross Station has just the exact opposite effect than intended? When things take an immediate turn for the worse, will Harry be able to survive?

UPDATE: Many surprises are revealed, and an emotional day is had by all.

When Sirius Black's will is discovered in Grimmauld Place, Remus Lupin has doubts about who he is and who he has been in regards to Harry Potter. Some of could pass for meaningful, but some of it couldn't really pass as anything. Regardless of how much sense it makes, Nymphadora Tonks is only too happy to snap him out of his ridiculous funk.
