    Summary

    Latin; a dead language with no practical applications except perhaps the deciphering of old texts and as a particularly quaint party trick.

    Thankfully, as Harry finds out, Latin is not as dead as he was first taught when he decided to learn the language. It wouldn't have mattered anyway, of course; he loved Latin, and would have been proud to know it even had it been as useless as it was pretty. But in the world of Wizards, the world of Magic, Harry realizes his rare talent with words is particularly valuable in the highly complicated and controversial subject of Spell Creation, a subject he soon becomes enamored with despite having to hide his interest from everyone.

    Besides, it's not like he's going Dark, after all.

    Summary

    Arya Stark, former assassin-in-training and current exile from the mysterious order of Faceless Men, nurses a broken heart and some serious grudges as she makes her way across Westeros, seeking revenge on those who have taken what is most precious to her. Will she find peace in a land still caught up in the throes of war, or will mysterious forces succeed in shaping her destiny, and with it, the destiny of all Westeros?

    Second in a three part series.

    9/29/19 I was working diligently on ch 28 until some major (and all-encompassing) work commitments took over my life. I am going to try very hard to finish it up so I can get it posted, and apologize for the delay. Believe me, I'd rather be writing this story than spending all those extra hours at work, but we do what we must!

    Summary

    Seven - the most mysterious of magical numbers. Seven were thrown back in time by the Seven Higher Entities. These seven come from four different futures: Two from a world where the One-Who-Lived is a girl and a Slytherin, two from a world where all is as it should be, one from a world where Harry Potter dies and the Dark Lord reigns supreme, and one from a world about to end after a too-long battle between the Dark Lord and Harry Potter. The last has yet to be revealed.

    Now together in an alternate past, keeping their time-travelling secret from each other, these seven are going to change the future with their chance of a second life.

    Tell me, "Do you ever wish you had a second chance to meet someone again for the first time?"

    Summary

    "... The last glimpse of sunset, a green flash shoots up into the sky... Some say—"
    "It signals when a soul comes back to this world from the dead."
    —POTC quote.

    The Higher Entities end up letting three souls have a second chance at life. One flash of green light the colour of death. Three souls return to the Living. History is rewritten. And Fate laughs.

    Or...

    The one story where Gellert Grindelwald takes a leaf out of Gru's book and adopts a kid despite being a former Dark Lord with no parenting skills whatsoever... And of course the kid is none other than Hadria Potter, who unintentionally drives him up the wall for all of three years. (After those three years, a number of people are driven up the wall, including Gellert, and it's totally intentional by now).
