Seventh-year, continuation of Red Tide Rising. This fic continues with the story, with important contributions from smaller characters like Luna, Tonks, Charlie, twins, Neville, Morag and Blaise (girl). Also, OCs continue to develop. This first chapter is simply excellent, and I know you'll agree if you read it. Please review.

Last Man Standing by Bren

Red Tide Rising by Bren

A sixth year fic, no AU. A new teacher comes to the school, which leads to some problems. Snape hates her, and she doesn't really like anyone, except herself, maybe. Hermione starts a newspaper, with proceeds to SPEW, but what's her secret? Harry discovers too much, much too fast, and nearly explodes, but instead decides revenge can be very sweet, especially against Snape... And Ron is deeply disappointed with Dumbledore, who requires him to continue Divination, even if he nearly failed the OWL, and swore he'd never listen to another tea leaf. Other little bits and pieces that fall lovingly into place (or bitterly, if you're Draco), and this first chapter sets Harry up for a difficult (but plausible) sixth year.
