    Summary

    Magic is an eco-system, and the magical world has been culling magical people and creatures for generations. It has finally gone too far - and the collective consequences are finally being felt. When magic starts disappearing, crumbling quietly in post-war Britain, it causes a cascade effect across the wizarding world. Not a single magical child has been born in almost a decade.

    Twenty-three-year-old Harry Potter discovers this when the wards of Diagon Alley literally come crashing down on top of him. So ends the life of the Boy-Who-Lived. Yet again, he returns to the station between life and death.

    With a new chance in a new world, Harry - now eleven-year-old Harry Fleamont - is given a chance to figure out how to save his dying world. In a new world that seems much more perfect in every sense of the word, Harry is faced with a growing threat from a much more dangerous Voldemort, and the reality that jumping universes just makes vulnerable and poor wizards who just want to eat a regular meal and afford to buy a pair of Merlin-damned socks.

    Summary

    At the age of sixteen, Sirius Black orchestrated a thoughtless and dangerous prank. What if James had not been fast enough, and that prank had proven deadly to Severus Snape? When the first wizarding war comes, and Sirius acquires information on the secret of the Dark Lord's invulnerability, the estranged Marauders must work together to defeat him, mending their friendships along the way. Or in the case of the wreckage of Remus and Sirius' relationship, could it be more than friendship that emerges?

    [Title derived from the lyrics of "Heart With No Companion" by the late, great Leonard Cohen]

    Summary

    After Sirius sorts out the whole falsely accused mass murderer thing, Harry finally gets to come home Grimmauld Place with his godfather. Professor Lupin joins them there more often than not and together they work on patching up the Black family home and Harry learns more and more about the life that both was his and wasn't- the life with his parents he was too young to remember.

    “Not at first,” Sirius says. “The war began long before you were born. At first, the five of us were just doing what we thought was right. And then things got uglier and we were fighting for Lily and Remus’ rights to exist. And then you were born and we found ourselves fighting to create a world that you could grow up in safe and happy. I wish I could say we were more successful.”
