    Summary

    As part of his penance program after the war, Draco returns to Hogwarts to retake seventh year. The Ministry is not at all kind (why would they be), his professors seem to both loathe and pity him, he's anxious all the time, and Harry Potter will always be a thorn in his side. Even if Potter is pretty okay at tutoring. Honestly, Harry is just trying to not make things worse.

    Summary

    Bellatrix entrusts her beloved sister Narcissa to look after her daughter if she does not return from the Battle of Hogwarts. Which she does not. Narcissa cannot look after the child and so turns to her cousin, one who she knows will keep the girl safe. Sirius Black takes in the child and she is raised as his own. The only people who know of Delphi's true heritage are Sirius, Narcissa and Andromeda. Not even Harry, his beloved Godson. It remains this way for years, the trust between Sirius and Delphi strong and their relationship close.

    That is until dark forces and rumours begin to circulate the wizarding community and the truth begins to come out piece by piece. A truth that puts Delphi in danger from her step-father and the Ministry of Magic. It turns out Sirius was not always as honest with her as she thought he was.

    *This is pretty slow burn, it takes a while to build up so pls be patient as i am halfway through my A-Levels right now and i'm stressed af. Anyway, enjoy, leave kudos, comments etc (comments make me happy) thank u <3

    Summary

    Severus Snape had never been overly fond of children, despite what his occupation might tell you. He’d been pushed into teaching out of necessity, not out of passion. Yet, here he sat, in his disheveled hovel of a home, holding a child in his arms and not hating it.

    Well not entirely anyway.

    Set during the backdrop of the Triwizard Tournament.

     

    Emilia Rosier – was called upon by Headmaster Albus Dumbledore to teach in Hogwarts. She has never met Professor Dumbledore and to receive his letter that requested her presence was bizarre, to say the least. She acquiesced and visited Hogwarts. She was later met with a rather brooding, quiet raven-haired Professor Snape.

    Will she accept the headmaster's proposal to be a Defense Against the Dark Arts professor?
    How will she endure the scathing, cold Professor Snape?
    What secret is she hiding?

    A slow-burn romance, that goes back and forth. A story of sacrifices, promises and compromises.A little warning,it will be a long story!

    Summary

    «You never stop being a Slytherin, especially if you have lived their story as I have lived it.
    I was born in September 1959, I am a half-blood witch, I am a Slytherin and I can tell you the tragedy as it was and as I remember it.
    As far as I know, at the beginning of it all, there were six young snakes and I met them, one by one. And although some of them have turned into monsters, in my heart there will be always a tiny place reserved for their memory, before power blinded them and evil swallowed them in its depths.»

    -*-*-*-

    A Hogwarts story that goes from 1975 to 1981: what happened behind the scenes of the First Wizarding War, told in first person by the true protagonist of the story.

    Work in progress.

    Summary

    It was a long time since she had felt like this, like a demon. Orion stood still and looked at her. He said nothing because he didn’t have to. She could feel that he was sending calming emotions to her through the bond. But somehow it made her feel even more angry. She screamed again, louder this time. More potion bottles exploded behind her and Orion’s desk moved dangerously. Orion now knew the seriousness of the situation and walked over to her an touched her gently on the cheek. “Show me your eyes.” His voice was soft but firm. It was a command, not a request. He didn’t use the power he had over her often but times like these when the bond was not enough he had to use the other option. She had no choice but to open her eyes to him. His frowned deepened. He did not like what he was seeing. Artemis could feel the worry and slight anger pulsing of the man. “You need to calm down. Now. Or I wont hesitate to knock you out.” She closed her eyes and took a few deep breaths. This time she let the calming emotions wash over her and she relaxed. Orion had cupped her face in his hands and he was stroking both her cheeks with his thumbs, similar to what she had done to him many years ago.

    Summary

    After the final battle, Snape feels a mental pressure lift.
    Lilly is gone from his mind. For the first time, he felt lonely, and his self control is slipping.

    The deep magic he had indulged in to hold her in his heart and mind all these years faded, leaving her to finally rest, but what damage had it done?

    Maybe Dumbledore was right, he couldn't be trusted to stay in the Light.

    Eyes he had seen locked away in a dungeon last year are back at Hogwarts. Gone are her raddish earrings, and in their place, a new penetrating gaze.

    He thought his adventure was over. He doesn't understand what's happening to him, but why does she look like she knows?
