    Summary

    When the Headmistress mandates therapy and offers optional group support sessions for those heavily impacted by the war, most roll their eyes - but for the first time in a long time, Hermione Granger feels a flicker of hopeful healing.

    But as group session attendance dwindles, leaving two broken hearts with only wards between them - Hermione finds a kindred soul through bleak confessions and a companion for her demons she’d always thought she’d face alone.

    If only she knew who they were.

    A Hogwarts 8th-year inspired story.

    Summary

    In 2023, the battle for the universe has been won. At a cost no one can forget, the fight is over—for all but one.
    Stephen Strange has an idea. An impossible idea spanning dimensions and timelines, life and death, and the lines of good and evil. But he's played impossible odds before—perhaps he never stopped.

    All that Loki wanted was to fight, one last time, for the fate of his universe. So when he finds himself fighting for another, crashing into the past, he has a few intended words for the wizard that forced him there.
    But not before he finds a boy. Or, more accurately, before the boy finds him.

    Peter Parker has been waiting for the next mission. He just doesn't expect it to come from the future, armed with a ridiculous story demanding a ridiculous quest. And he doesn't expect not to be able to tell Mr. Stark.

    Tony Stark is trying to rebuild from the Civil War, knowing that someday, something will come that he needs to be ready for. And he doesn't know it yet, but two universes are trying to rebuild around him, and that something is already here.

    Seven Stones. Five dead. Two universes. And one impossible quest to tie it all back together.

    Summary

    Narcissa Malfoy was aware of the coming war, the rising of Voldemort, her husband's involvement, her son's cruel fate—all of it. She anticipated it, feared it, planned for it. To ensure her son's future she became a spy for the light and worked secretly to help bring down Voldemort and the Death Eaters.

    She only had three stipulations for her aid:

    (1) Draco would not be held accountable for any of his actions during the war. When it was over he would be released without punishment or penalty—his birthright and inheritance intact.

    (2) Lucius would go away for the rest of his long life as punishment for his actions and crimes against his family.

    (3) At the conclusion of the war, Draco will marry Hermione Granger.

    Now the war is won, Narcissa is dead, Draco is in Azkaban, and only Hermione is left to pick up the pieces.

    (Hermione's POV)

    Summary

    During the Battle of Hogwarts, Harry Potter walked into the forbidden forest, died, and walked out with crimson eyes as the new vessel of the Dark Lord. Since then, Hermione Granger served as an elite member of the True Order, isolating herself from other Order members and going on missions alone, not only haunted by the loss of her best friend, Harry, but Ron who had run away after the battle.

    Three and a half years later, Draco Malfoy shows up with his two year old son on the Order’s doorstep seeking to switch sides. Together, Draco and Hermione are forced to deal with not only each other, but their own past and confront who they’ve become because of the war.

    Summary

    Charles Xavier's entire life comes crashing down around him on the beach in Cuba, and he panics, and then he forgets. It only becomes a problem when Erik and Raven show up on his doorstep and Erik remembers everything.

      “Benefits of being a telepath. I only feel what I want to feel.” Charles told him with a rather smug grin, stretching out across the bed and humming contentedly. He stopped when Erik’s mouth suddenly left his skin, and he looked over his shoulder to find Erik watching him with an even expression that never meant anything good. Charles flipped around, crossing his legs underneath him so that the sheets pooled around his waist. He met Erik’s gaze and reached a hand out, gently brushing a hand against his shoulder. “Erik? What’s the matter?”

      “Feelings matter, Charles.” Erik murmured softly, bringing a hand up to cup Charles’ jaw, thumb brushing against his bottom lip. Erik looked at him with an intensity no one ever had before, with something beautiful and raw and just a little bit painful.

    Summary

    First year, Hermione stumbles upon a magical room in the courtyard. It is a small balcony overlooking the Black Lake. Through unfortunate circumstances, Draco Malfoy strikes a deal with Hermione. They will share the Balcony during their time at Hogwarts with lots of magical ups and downs. It takes them longer than they would like to admit to realize that they may not hate each other as much as they think.

    Takes place from third year until right after the Battle of Hogwarts. Not epilogue compliant. Will not be a super dark fic, but will have dark elements. PLEASE READ THE TAGS. This IS a wip, please bear with me.

    Upload schedule: Will post a new chapter within TEN DAYS of when the last one was posted (probably)

    Summary

    Torture smells like spring.

    Like daffodils and tulips and snowdrops. Like the bouquets brought inside from the manor gardens to lend their life to cold stone walls that house criminals. Easter mixed with madness makes sense in this twisted landscape; Draco’s only chance at survival is to endure it. He knows this. But that doesn’t quell the twitching in his calves, the flexing in his fingers.

    Granger lifts her hand off the floor and Draco nearly loses his lunch, stomach churning as he watches her extend her arm, reaching through the translucent cord, reaching towards him. He tries to blink it away, blink blink blink, but both she and the cord are stubborn, persistent things.

    Summary

    Draco Malfoy is harsh and cold and hated at Hogwarts. And Draco is fine with this. He’s even casting the Vanishing Cabinet spell again, although for a much less nefarious purpose. This time he's using Harmonia Nectere Passus to link his bed with the bed of a willing witch. But something goes horribly wrong, and instead of the buzzy flirt Draco's been secretly meeting, his bed keeps delivering an extremely unamused Hermione Granger.

    So begins Draco’s travesty of an Eighth Year on probation, where nothing ever goes to plan and good deeds NEVER pay. His Divination classes are a disaster, his mother owls him daily prophecies of doom, a rabid she-weasel stalks him through the castle, and his mad roommate from Durmstrang plots to avenge the Dark Lord.

    Each day sparks an internal battle between Draco’s calculating Malfoy nature and his reckless Black side. Every night brings Granger back again, wreaking havoc with his body and mind. Draco is convinced he's headed straight back to Azkaban and he’s almost looking forward to the trip.

    (FYI: This story is NOT part of “The Gloriana Set” universe. This is a whole new castle full of crazy.)
