Harry saw Aberforth again, his gray hair flying as he led a small group of students past. They look like they might be breaching the north battlements, theyve brought giants of their own!
Have you seen Remus? Tonks called after him.
He was dueling Dolohov, shouted Aberforth, havent seen him since!

Killing with Kindness PrologueThird Year Hermione Jean Granger was scowling at her schedule; she hated Divination and really didn't feel like going to class today. She couldn't stand Professor Trelawney and her bogus area of study. Divination wasn't even real magic; it was just guesswork and BS-ing your way through. But, then again, if Harry and Ron had anything to say about it, ALL their classes were just guesswork and BS.Killing with Kindness Prologue4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Hermione sighed and pulled the time-turner out of her robes; she'd have to go to class, or face the revocation of her double classes and the time-turner. She began to turn the rotating magical hourglass, but suddenly, Draco Malfoy slammed into her, sending the time-turner into a frenzied spin.
"Crap," Hermione said before the scene around her began rushing backwards. The sun rose and set outside the window to her right and kids rushed to and from in the hallway. Summers came and went, and all the seasons passed in reverse right before her eyes. She had no idea how far she was going to go back, b

As the sun rose over Diagon Alley, an alarm clock went off in the bachelor pad over number ninety-three, Weasleys' Wizarding Wheezes. A calloused hand immediately swatted the nuisance off the nightstand between the two beds and into the far wall. Being enchanted and quite used to this kind of treatment by now, the clock fell silent.
A muffled groan came from across the room as the other resident peered up from under his pillow. "S'your turn to make breakfast, Fred."

"You'll see in a minute," Lucius Malfoy yelled over his shoulder, snaking his arm around Narcissa Black's slender waist. She blushed and giggled in the way all fifteen year-old girls do.
The Hogwarts students were out on a Hogsmead visit and the brilliantly white snow crunched under their feet as they walked up through the forest. Lucius said he had a good idea, so Barty, Bellatrix, Rabastan, Narcissa, and Crabbe all picked up and followed closely. Barty was the only one without a hat, so the wind had blown his shaggy brown hair in all directions, and his face was turning red in the cold wind as he kept tripping over his lanky legs. Being the only Fourth Year in the group, he was sometimes teased about his age, but because he hit a growth spurt early and was the tallest of the group, he got teased for the awkward way he got tangled up in his legs and arms.

It was on one long February day, when the wind howled blustery and cold through the Whomping Willow to the lake beyond, that Professor Sprout was approached with a most peculiar request. Classes had finished for the day, allowing her some much-needed time to deal with a particularly troublesome weed that was threatening to take over Greenhouse Three. The plant, a variation of clover that had apparently bred with a variation of Devils Snare, curled up and around the greenhouse, strangling other plants, and managing to crack a piece of glass. The breeze from the lake whistled in through the hole like a dying cat; already, several mandrakes had shrivelled up in their pots, exhausted from the unnaturally cold temperature that was threatening their home.
Off, Sprout said hotly, her chubby cheeks going red as she gave a hard tug at one of the vines. The plant fought, then yielded with a snap; more glass shattered, and the Herbology professor tumbled backwards.

On Halloween Tonks had to work.
And work that day was another load of brutally boring reports to file...Tonks and Kingsley were both in charge of the filing, because Voldemort's Minister puppet, Pius Thicknesse, knew they wouldn't carry out the cruel, unfair missions, raids, and arrests that the Ministry made these days; those jobs were given to only the most "trusted" Aurors.
Tonks loathed the paperwork, and could have probably done some sort of magic to make it go faster, but she'd taken to glancing over the search warrants, etc. so that she could inform the Order, who would in turn, warn the person the warrant was for so they could go into hiding.
Kingsley had taken to doing the same; it didn't feel like much. All around them Voldemort's grip on everything in their world tightened continually.
In that retrospect, it wasn't much, but it was saving people.
And if that was all they could do, then thank God they could at least do that much.

The door opened and a slow voice wafted out to them, followed by a thin woman draped in what appeared to be an infinite muber of shawls.
"Good morning class. I am professor Trelawney." the thin woman said.
Nearby students noticed Charles eager smile turn into a wide grin.
"You have chosen to study to ancient art of divination shall find the wonders of our world revealed to you in this room. I will teach you how to look beyond the veil of the present into future still to be lived...."

Spoiler alert, for all three of the people in the world that haven't seen the movie or read the book.Review of Harry Potter 6 movie5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Things I loved:
-My very first WTF moment in this movie was the scene with Mrs. Malfoy. Now, we all know and love Mr. Malfoy as one of the pioneering DILFs of this age, paving the way for other middle-aged men who are entirely too good looking for their own good. Now, Mr. Malfoy has long, blond, hair and appears to be in his early forties. Mrs. Malfoy, in the movie at least, has a good twenty years on him, is graying, wrinkled, and looks like Draco's grandmother. This leads me to the conclusion that Lucius is a TROPHY HUSBAND.
-Speaking of Malfoys, Tom Felton as Draco did a wonderful job acting and was really believable. He also is beginning to look exactly like Jason Isaacs, who pla

Spinner´s End, Cokeworth, Northern England.
Severus put down the book and puffed heavily. It was the sixth time the bloody doorbell had rung.
Probably the teenage delinquents who were in the inconvenient habit of roaming Spinner´s End on occasion. During the past few years, they had been coming over to that abandoned part of town whenever they felt bored or were being chased by the police. As a matter of fact, with the street´s alarming state of decay, most of its houses deserted, it was rather surprising that the juvenile gangster-hopefuls didn´t come around to "visit" more often.
Spinner´s End was after all a perfect hiding place...Nobody better than Severus knew that...
But the fact was that Spinner´s End was ruined to such a degree that not even those little punks took a more than passing interest in it. Sometimes they entered an abandoned house to smoke, played some loud music (that is, if that godawful cacophony could be call

Stuff I Loved:
-Griphook the Goblin. He was actually a really cool character, and he had this laconic way of speaking that made him seem really real.
-Lucius "Scruffington" Malfoy, still played by Jason Isaacs, is a riot in this movie. Every time he came on screen, looking like Hell with stubble all over and wearing a velour dressing gown like England's best-dressed hobo I knew that I was a happy girl.
-Lord Voldemort. I know, I know, but still! There is a scene where Harry "sees" Voldemort's mind and realizes he knows that Harry is hunting for Horcruxes, and it cuts back to Voldemort and he's gone absolutely NUTS in Gringotts. The floor's covered in blood, bodies scattered everywhere. Now THERE'S a villain.

Murmurs and whispers travelled through the hall, members from each of the four houses glaring at him as he reached the stool - his heart was racing and his stomach was doing backflips. His hands were shaking nervously and someone said, "That's the palest Malfoy I've ever seen."
Scorpius sat down nervously and Professor Longbottom carefully placed the hat on his head - yawning as if he already knew the outcome of Scorpius's Sorting. Scorpius's head turned towards the Slytherin table and he saw some boys clearing a space for him and some girls arguing with each other over which one would sit next to him. Scorpius almost slapped himself on his forehead.
"Oh great." Scorpius thought to himself.
He turned to observe the Gryffindor, Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff tables. The Hufflepuffs smiled kindly up at him, although Scorpius could tell many of their smiles were completely fake. Some of them looked terrified of him and shrunk away as he faced them.

Hermione was putting some books back in the library stacks when she saw the corner of a slim volume sticking out from behind a shelf at floor level. She tugged it out. It was covered in green suede with the title in gold gilt letters: 'Mad, Bad, and Dangerous to Know: Five Fatal Witches.' Also in gilt was a ghastly illustration of a Medusa-haired woman with wild eyes. Flipping to the table of contents, Hermione saw the name Agnetha Corvus. Her small whoop of delight earned her a glare from Madame Pince. She settled down onto a chair and read avidly.
Agnetha Corvus lived in the fourteenth century, and was known for both her bold innovations in potion-making and her refusal to bathe or even comb her hair. She was able to accomplish more than most any other witch that ever lived because she never had a man in her life to distract her. Because she stan
