I'm a fan of the so-called minor characters--McGonagall (my fave), Neville, Luna, Fred and George, Angelina, Colin Creevey, Cho, etc.   

I love new takes on old relationships, though I have a real hard time reading slash (unless it's backed up by believable background, plot twists, and characterizations.)  I have no use for gratuitous violence.

 I also like well-fleshed-out, invented characters.  Grace HasVictory's Ariadne McDougal/Remus Lupin ship comes to mind, as does the character of Alexandra in Cheryl78's 'The Snake and the Eagle.'

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.

What if Voldemort chose to mark Neville as his equal instead of Harry? That's the question that this story sets out to answer. Deals mostly with his childhood to date.
