    Summary

    Instead of becoming Voldemort, Tom Riddle established a school of “secondary importance” for Muggleborns, half-bloods, and Squibs. Since the school frees Hogwarts to continue drifting more towards the purebloods’ whims and wishes, they haven’t raised any large fuss. Besides, everyone knows that half-bloods and Muggleborns don’t have any real power. Just look at Riddle, who had ambitions that outpaced his magical strength. They don’t see the revolution coalescing under the surface.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    If you read science fiction about dystopian human futures, this might appeal to you. This isnot asneasy story to read when you consider the real wotld parallels.

     

    Warnings:

    There is race segregation in schools and restricted jobs as well as restricted access to shops a la South Africa and the American Southbefore 1969. Muggleborns can be refused education at Hogwarts or be expelled from schools, as were Jews in 1930s Germany.

    There is the implications of ethnic cleansing and genocide a la Second World War and the 1990s wars in the Balkans. No rape camps and no extermination camps but there are hunts organized for blood traitors and "uppity" halfbloods or Muggleborns resulting in torture and their Magic being harvested for the hunters. The victins die, of course.

    There are also horrific experiments conducted on Muggleborns a la Mengele in the death camps or the Japanese army in occupied China.

    Summary

    What if the sliver of Lord Voldemort's soul in Harry's scar wasn't a Horcrux at all. Instead, when the Dark Lord's curse rebounded that Halloween night, a piece of his fractured soul sought out the one thing that had felt similar, equal even. And after his abuse suffered by the Dursleys, Harry shows up to Hogwarts with a very different outlook on things. Dark Harry! TR/HP SLASH

    Summary

    Harry has promised that he will not do anything to upset the new head of Magical Creatures. Even if it is Draco Malfoy. When three centaur foals appear in Cumbria, far from the Forbidden Forest and all too close to Muggles, Harry’s promise is thoroughly tested. To say nothing of his equestrian skills.

    Summary

    When this season's purple courgettes are woefully thin, Draco Malfoy thinks it amounts to small beans. Next thing he knows, the Department of Standards is over-run with leeks, Brussels sprouts all sorts of legislative difficulties, and somebody appears to have put a roquette under Harry Potter. Can Draco seize a marrow victory? Or will his plans for peas be squashed?

    All along, Kingsley Shacklebolt finds himself pining for the good old days, when, instead of governing, all you had to worry about were Dark Lords and imminent death,

    James foreshadows a reindeer with "his nose so bright".
