Thanks for the Mudblood by Grimm Sister09/12/2007
I always knew what you were, Severus. It wasn't that one word that made me realize. I always knew. You think that that was the moment you lost me. You have no idea. That was the moment I almost joined you, the moment you almost got everything you wanted from me but I couldn't give. Then you saved me, saved me from your fate.
In Your Eyes by Grimm Sister09/09/2007
"Remus sometimes says how frightening it is that all it takes is one bad week to utterly destroy your world, but I think that he knows better than that. He knows that the events of that week had been in the works for years, had their beginning as far back as our fourth year. It's not even surprising that everything came to a head at once. The events of that week could never have happened one by one. Our lives were too tightly intertwined for isolated tragedies, much less deaths. We couldn't have stopped it then. We were already too different from the way than we looked through the eyes of those that we loved best. What happened was inescapable."
The Will of Alphard Black by Grimm Sister09/05/2007
Alphard Black was a second son groomed to take a step back from the Head of Family responsibilities of the Noble and Most Ancient House of Black. That sole fact made up the bulk of his identity. That was why it shocked the ever-living hell of him when his favorite daugther challenged everything. It changed everything, and when Sirius ran away he seized his chance to let her know.
Flying and Dying with George by Grimm Sister08/27/2007
They didn't die together. Fred wasn't prepared to handle that. This fact is so shocking that he hesitates in limbo. The Weasley twins were different people, but they always acted together. They were separate bodies and minds, but they always pooled their efforts. It is hard to make a life and death decision without George. It is harder than he would have thought to think what George would have done.
Cauldron Tales by Grimm Sister07/12/2006
The invention of the Wolfsbane Potion was accomplished by three of the most unlikely people imaginable: Remus Lupin, Severus Snape, and Mariella Goring. Two halfbloods and a pureblood. Two Gryffindors and a Slytherin. Two Order members and one Death Eater. Two lost souls hoping to atone for one terrible day, one terrible death, and one hopeful spirit seeking to do some good in the world.
A Chance You Only Get Once by Grimm Sister12/05/2005
Some people live and die in a brilliant flash of light. Lily and James were such people, as were Marissa Fletcher and Sirius Black. Others, seeing them, live their lives almost too afraid to light their own candle, for fear that it will burn and die as quickly. Remus Lupin, Peter Pettigrew, and Mundungus Fletcher were such people. They saw some of the brightest lights of the wizarding world shine fearlessly at Hogwarts during the Reign of Terror, but they also lived to see how quickly brilliant fireworks fade away into darkness. But fireworks can light the entire nightsky while they do burn.
