"He is a degenerate, Muriel. There's nothing else he can be called. He is simply bad news. And it breaks my heart that my old friend should find someone like that in his own family."
Albus Dumbledore. Stephen Strange. Power and wisdom come face to face.
He would let his followers murder at leisure. Then...
The voices exploded in Voldemort's head as he sat on his throne, reflecting on his plans....
Most of the time, I can live with it.
Minister Kingsley Shacklebolt has to learn on the job, fast, and painfully. Everyone thinks they have a claim on him; everyone has demands; and no one is willing to listen. And the sinister Black clan seems to have plans of its own.
The first victim of the Death Eaters. Who she was, why she was hated... how she triumphed over her enemies.
An old warrior and a young one look down on a great city and contemplate war, fear, and humanity. And one of them falls in love.
Two old men of great power meet for the first time. What they have to discuss may change the wizarding world for ever.

Mrs. Zabini. Seven young and healthy men have died with her ring on their fingers; and still men fall in love or in lust with her. Listen as she tells her secrets to Albus Dumbledore...
A sinister visitor troubles Minister Cornelius Fudge. He has come to bring a warning - one which Fudge has no desire to hear...
The war is nearly over. The avengers are closing in. But the losing party has prepared a legacy - a wound in the side of reality, which will outlive even their final defeat. (Note: WRITTEN BEFORE DEATHLY HALLOWS)
When Andromeda Tonks demands that her daughter should bear a ridiculous name, there is a row. Her husband will not hear of it. But Andromeda has a very good reason to want that name and none other - a reason as strong as a broken heart, and a good person whose very memory has been destroyed...
You have made me happy. And it is for you that I am going to risk my life.
After the murder of Albus Dumbledore, an awful silence had settled upon magical Britain. Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger had apparently vanished from the face of the Earth; and as if in response, the killings had stopped. Nobody could doubt the meaning of this. The Dark Lord had thrown all his resources into the pursuit of his three enemies. And yet the house of Weasley decided to throw a party.
Your enemies will triumph. Your friends will believe their lies. They will think you are a traitor. You will die like a dog; and nobody will ever know how and where you died.
A treasure from the dawn of time. Something so ancient that the mere rumour of it makes the whole wizarding world boil over with curiosity, nervousness and excitement...
You must watch what you say. You must weigh every word. Among Death Eaters, one word out of place - and you would be hurtling screaming towards destruction. Severus Snape and Narcissa Malfoy have a chat.
Four Aurors raid a house where someone is selling a particularly addictive kind of Dark Magic for money. And Tonks wants to know why anyone would ruin their lives like that, and pay for it too.
Grindelwald was the wisest wizard of his generation. Unfortunately, he was also the most wicked. But when he was finally defeated, one question had to be answered: who would dare to try and condemn him? Who was wise enough, and mighty enough? Or would the villain go free, because he had no equal to stand against him and condemn him?
Blaise (or Biagio) Zabini has lost the woman he loves: she has been claimed by a band of immortals called the Dark Elves. But Biagio himself is not a young man to be crossed, as the Dark Elves and many other creatures will find out before this is over.
Oliver Wood, captain of the England Quidditch side, is kind, but insensitive. Ginny Weasley, star Chaser, is obstinate. When they disagree, you do not want to be caught in the middle.
It was a dark and stormy night... the kind of night when ghosts are abroad...
There she goes again, thought Severus Snape. That girl just annoyed him... Two long knitting needles and a mass of red fluff on top, according to the unchivalrous definition of one of his Slytherins. (Of which he had heartily approved.) Spoiled. Thinks she's the centre of the universe. And a Weasley to boot...
And so, when Minerva McGonagall saw Dolores in the Hogwarts SCR, with a triumphant smile hovering over her lips and threatening every second to break out, she knew what it was about. In that smile lay the horrors that Dolores would single-mindedly pursue for a whole academic year: the pursuit of Dumbledore, the assault on Minerva’s prize student Harry Potter, even the attempted murder in the night near Hagrid’s hut. Minerva doubted that Umbridge had ever had any loyalty for anyone but herself. It was not about ambition, cruelty, or deception – at least, not primarily; for all these things could be indulged just as easily elsewhere... It was all on account of the little Russian girl.
There are nights that seem made on purpose to go romance the woman you love. There are nights in which it is all too easy to get your heart broken.
A head of thick black hair and a head of flaming red... each turning in the orbit of the other, like a moon and a planet, like a planet and a star.
Glimpses from the magical world.
The bluer the blood of a noble wizarding family, the worse the crimes it has committed. And no family has bluer blood than the Malfoys. But they should have made sure that all their intended victims fell...
The Dark Lord used one of the most forbidden spells on Earth to distract Dumbledore and Harry during his final assault on Hogwarts. He failed, and he died; but hundreds of Hogwarts students have been affected - permanently - by his spell, with consequences that will last for decades.
Peeves flew away, disappointed. His plan to entice a particular couple in a particular part of the castle had failed. And so he did not see another couple - a bushy-haired girl and a boy with messy black hair and glasses - bump their heads together at the very same spot...
Beauty itself. How safe is it to live in it? The Malfoys are about to find out.
There is a book in Hogwarts that knows far more than Dumbledore knows. It deals out its knowledge only as it pleases, and plays with the lives and deaths of mortals. It ``seduced and ruined Salazar Slytherin. Now, in the shadow of the Voldemort War, it has killed a student... and for what reason? A follow-up to "Mary Sue at Hogwarts".
Being a librarian in a great and ancient library is the best conceivable job for a young woman who loves books. But when the library is a magical one, and contains many manuscripts of power, not alll the visitors may be well-meaning... what does one young girl with no particular powers do when Lord Voldemort comes to call?
The name of Mary Sue has gone down in Hogwarts legend for a person provided with certain extremely unamiable personal features. But who was the original Mary Sue? And why is she remembered? Be warned: there is a distinct shortage of laughs in this story.
Why is it that wizards hate and despise Muggles? The answer is not what you think; indeed, you probably will not be able to guess it.
There are people who seriously believe that the kind of betrayal shown in this story could not happen. It not only can, it does.
Some songs are so powerful that they can give you the answer to the dilemmas of life... or at least, make you feel as if they had. And what would a Muggle think if he heard an (expurgated) version of Harry's life?
What can the pounding music of Jim Steinman and his singers do for one green-eyed young man? Well, perhaps not help him win his war; but it can make a lot of other things much more pleasant. WARNING: very macho. If you are afraid of testosterone poisoning, go somewhere else
Sometimes it takes little to take one person out of suicidal despair and into the sun... sometimes it takes no more than one small flower.
One of the worst villains in canon. A valiant and true heroine. AND they're uncle and niece! So what's to keep them from (*ahem, ahem*) getting together? Sometimes personal relationships are not the worst issue...
Now, which is the most unlikely ship you have ever thought about? No, not that one! This one!
A tender-hearted werewolf. A lonely exile from a faraway country. More love, loss, regrets and dark secrets than you can shake a stick at!
So Lucius married the woman he wanted - certain legal impossibilities notwithstanding. But how does a certain third party feel about it? You don't just swear allegiance to Voldemort and forget about it...``A follow-up to "The Flesh and Blood of the House of Malfoy".
When a thoroughly good person is born among thoroughly bad people, how long can they go on together before the cracks start showing? A follow-up to "The Flesh and Blood of the House of Malfoy," "What Made True Love Run Smooth" and "The Unexpected Kiss".
The law is all too clear: every Muggle who strays into the magical world must have their memory rearranged and be returned to theirs. Only Harry and his friends can't bring themselves to do it. Will they? And what will happen if they won't? A songfic on Abba's EAGLE.
Dance for joy, dance for fun, dance to save your life in the sun. Dance the night, dance the day, dance to put a Death Eater away!
Two young girls come to Hogwarts from a background that is both unmagical and uncool. They will face snobbery, ignorance, and sometimes just plain evil. They will find themselves alone and depressed - until they turn to each other... until they make terrible choices... Until they have to show both all the good and all the bad that is in them.
In Hijja's PEEVED, we saw how Peeves worked as an unconscious lesbian-cupid and brought two young women together. This is what happened afterwards... and Peeves may well have wished he'd left well enough alone.
One of the mysteries of Hogwarts was the friendship between lovely, un-intellectual Cleo Malfoy and bushy-haired academic star Hermione Granger. It was just as much a mystery to the girls themselves; and when they tried to explain it to each other, they discovered much more than they had bargained for. (NOT femmeslash.) And what are those Malfoys up to?
How Lucius and Narcissa Malfoy fell in love. This is one of the nastiest love stories you are likely to read and only for strong stomachs.
Hermione Granger is a pacifist, a girl who believes in reason and in arguing things out. In this fic, she bears courageous witness to her beliefs in conditions of terrible danger. But can she succeed?
Draco has a younger sister. She is very lovely, very sweet and very silly. Blaise Zabini falls for her. What happens next -- shouldn't happen to a dog...
What happens when the miserable little rat of pedantry starts to interfere with real work? Read, and reflect...
How does news get to the wizarding public, and are wizard journalists really different from Muggle ones? Here is what happened to one "scoop of the year", why it was suppressed, and how it was published.
What Professor McGonagall saw when Minister Cornelius Fudge asked her to visit a place in California called Sunnydale...
