A good half hour went by before Madame Pomfrey arrived and Harry had almost given up waiting by that point. His stomach had been growling in protest the whole time.
"Mr. Potter. Why am I not surprised that my first patient of the year is you? Well come on then, what's the matter with you?" She pulled over a little stool to sit on so she could sit as he described what was happening to him.
By the time he had finished, Madame Pomfrey was already checking all of his stats. Harry just sat still and watched as she circled him, casting spells and worked when she suddenly stopped still as if she had been hit with a petrifying curse. Although Harry's theory was proven wrong as she started scuttling off to a cabinet at the side of the room. After flicking th

Summary: Harry has changed over the summer. Secrets are soon to be revealed. Can curiosity really kill you? Harry will have a year at Hogwarts like none other.
From childhood every witch and wizard will know to never mess around near a faerie ring, fae are incredibly mischievous and cheeky creatures. It is never a good idea to mix with them. Although as our little boy hero knows all too well, every rule has its exceptions. Every blue moon (this being very occasional, bordering on never) a fae will leave its ring and clan to venture out on its own, although this is about as common as a dragon and crup becoming best friends. Anyway back to the story, centuries ago there lived a young fae called Destry Ryanous, a plucky little fellow who was more mischievous than most but as fate would have it he had a curiosity to rival his infamous cheeky-streak. This is something that set him apart from most fae, who were

While the following Death Battle has been proven accurate to all extents necessary by the creator, the creator has decided the fight was not accurately researched. Therefore, the prelude and research portions of the fights have been deleted. What remains is the host interaction and fight, because it is believed they are still entertaining. The fight is still accurate, but research was not detailed enough.

A Fireplace too Far
"While we all know people who have met either greatness or ruin when they have chosen to step off the so-called beaten path, the simple fact is that often the most significant events in our lives, for good or for ill, happen when we step off that path by complete accident."
General (ret.) Jigme Dorji Wengshuk
Harriet nearly leapt out of bed Wednesday morning. Mrs Weasley had said she would be waking them up early for the trip into Diagon Alley, but Harriet was too excited to stay in bed any longer. She had woken up nearly every other hour that night, looking at the clock eagerly before sighing in disappointment and going back to sleep. She couldn't help it. She was too eager to see all of her friends again.

I am a contradiction, something that isn't supposed to exist. Even among my own kind they doubt me. I'm a wizard, but not just any wizard, a wizard from America. To other wizards I come from a land devoid of magic, a land cursed. But when I showed up on their doorstep at the beginning of my journey, well why ruin the fun when I can just tell you.
I am Donald Cowl and when this began I was about to turn eleven. Now from the get go I wasn't like other children my age. To start I was an orphan, but even among them I was an outcast. Strange things happened around me, things that couldn't be explained by normal people. So my caretakers and fellow orphans feared me, thus I was a loner.

“I’m not doing it Hermione, I swear I just can’t.”
Lily was stood as close to the door as was physically possible, but was prevented from actually leaving by the disappearance of a door handle. Crushing the tips of her fingers into the gap wasn’t working either, and while it demonstrated for her friends her utter reticence to go along with another of their hair brained schemes. Behind her, the trappings of the room represented an utterly reprehensible idea, something she absolutely wasn’t going to be a part of, and she’d pound on those doors until someone, anyone, freed her from the awkwardness.
“Come on mate, it’s just a bit of fun,” Ron countered, trying at least to get his friend to turn around and face the room. It was hard though, seeing as how the whole place was set up exactly how the Winter Ball was likely to be the next day; down to the tables, the streamers, and the dance floor.

Harry Potter and the Descendent Covenant
This story takes place in a world where Harry Potter declined to be a part of the Triwizard Tournament, which was eventually cancelled after the exposure of Barty Crouch jr’s impersonation of Mad-Eye Moody. We find our heroes at the beginning of their seventh and final year, wherein Voldemort has not returned, there has been no search for the Horcruxes, and life at Hogwarts has gone on without interruption from dark wizardry. Professor Snape has finally been granted his dream job as defence against the dark arts teacher and is running the most successful program since before Voldemort’s attempt to interview for the job. Albus Dumbledore is still alive, as is Cedric Diggory, and anyone else who died in the interim within the books after number 3.
“I’m not doing it.”
“Come on Hermione.”
“I’ve told you Ron, I’m not stooping that low, you do it yourself and you like it.”
TG - Harry Potter and the Descendent Covenant 12They spent the rest of the day exploring the depths of the plague dormitories, finding little in the way of interesting booty, aside from a noticeably rotten human hand, and the remains of a rusting lance, which was protruding from one of the far walls. Dumbledore hadn’t been wrong when he’d said the school had needed extra space for all of the victims. The place was down right massive, and far bigger than Lily had imagined when her effects had been moved there. What she was dealing with was more of a school in its own right than a bedroom for a misplaced girl.TG - Harry Potter and the Descendent Covenant 1210 months ago in Romance More Like This
“What’s it like? You know, sleeping down here?” Ron asked, as the two watched Hagrid attempting to teach a lesson on the grass below through one of the windows of the room. She was struggling to keep the class under control, which was especially difficult as his students were first years. They were both admiring her ability to go back and begin teaching so soon after the change, but couldn’t h

“So what you’re telling me…” Mandeville opened, trying to comprehend what he was hearing.
“Yes,” prompted Hagrid, hoping against hope that the Commander would understand the gravity of the situation.
“What exactly I’m hearing at this moment is…” he took a long sip, and then replenished the lost fluids in his glass. Jenkins looked a little worried, especially seeing as how he was completely and utterly able to grasp all of the information the two had been given.
The big tent had been cleared out of the men, who were ordered out into the northern lines to assist with the ditch digging and fortification preparation for the coming night, which was looming ever closer. It was just the Commander, sitting rigidly upright on his chair, which he’d of course ordered Jenkins to retrieve from his tent.

Breakfast wasn’t going down easily in the Great Hall. The streamers and banners were already up for the ball that evening, and as such, Lily was being reminded now, more than ever, of what was to come. For someone who had spent so much time battling the forces of evil, even continuing up until a few weeks previously, she should have been more than equipped to deal with the ever increasing amounts of butterflies in her stomach. But there was something about the atmosphere, a sense of tension, and of the unknown, which she couldn’t shake.
Ron and Hermione were bickering over this or that. It seemed that Ron had been demanding Hermione make him a suitable tuxedo, just as she’d made the dress for Lily, but that wasn’t going down well.
“Ron, your mother sent you that tuxedo for you to wear, she’ll find out anyway, she’s got ears everywhere somehow.”
Lily and Ginny made eye contact over the table. The unspoken conceit being that both of them kn

There was only so much to be gained from hiding from the world, so in the end, she began to assimilate back into school life. Ron and Hermione had noticed some drastic changes in personality from the Harry they once knew, but they were encouraging at best, and silent at worst, over the apparent new Lily Potter they shared as a best friend. The Quidditch season had begun with aplomb, though there would not be a Potter on the team, she showed as much support as she could from the sidelines. Far from quitting the team due to her changes in musculature and physicality, Lily just felt like she’d had enough of the spotlight for one lifetime, and she wanted someone else to share the glory of being the winning seeker.TG - Harry Potter and the Descendent Covenant 1610 months ago in Romance More Like This

Though Lily was moving slowly toward the door, one set of feet under the cloak was dragging, and it wasn’t Ron or Hermione. Draco Malfoy was struggling to reconcile what he was seeing, and fear was wiping the grin from his face. While the other three were used to something foreboding like this, Draco was not, having lived a coddled existence for all of his seventeen years.TG - Harry Potter and the Descendent Covenant 1910 months ago in Romance More Like This
“I… I’ve had quite enough of this Potter, time to go to bed,” he lurched backward, dragging the other three with him, but Lily wasn’t to be deterred.

Lily was completely taken aback, and almost fell over as she was grabbed by the robes, and thrust out through the doorway, straight into the face of Ron, who was sheepishly trying to appear like he wasn’t a part of this rude meeting. After a moment, Lily regained her balance, and then stopped, not allowing Hermione to drag her along any longer.
“Why is it that it’s always right after breakfast that I’m running around Hermione?” she gasped, “I’ve got a full stomach.”
“Lily Potter, we’ve got something to show you, I think you’re really going to like it,” Hermione replied tersely, as if this was all Lily’s fault.

Just as soon as she’d fell asleep, it seemed to Lily like she was being awoken by Hedwig rattling in her cage for breakfast. The day she’d been waiting for, or dreading, for months was finally there. It meant that later that night she would be accompanying Colin Creevey to the Winter Ball. Her dress was laid out on her table in the Plague dormitory, calling to her in a soft way, a way that brought butterflies to her stomach, but something else too. She felt like a girl that day. Not just a guy in a girl’s body, but a girl, inside and out. She’d been trying her best for weeks to hold back the fact that her identity was changing from within, but everything that was happening of late was confirming, rather than disproving, her fears.
Her feelings for Draco were in full bloom again in the bright morning light, and she had to close her eyes to stop it blinding her. She wanted to go to him, to feel him close by and protecting her, arms holding her to him, and feeling

During his time as the school’s transfiguration master, a lifetime ago, he’d taken his pacing out into the grounds, where he’d watch the gardens being tended to, the student’s practising their spells on the lawns, or even into the forbidden forest, where he’d walk among the terrible beasts that lay within. All was practice really for when he became headmaster, he knew the school like the back of his hand, he knew the students, and tried to participate as much as he could in the actual running of the school, unlike some of the more aloof headmasters that had come before him. He was respected, loved, and sometimes feared by those who called the castle and its grounds their home, but once he’d earned their animosity or their kudos, there was no more time for pacing outside.

His body was lying on the cold, stone floor while it contorted and submitted to the transformation, but his head was being cushioned by something.

Snape rushed to the back of the classroom, thrusting the crowding students out of the way, and kneeling next to Harry, wordlessly casting as many disarmament charms as he was able. They lit up Harry’s body in brilliant colours, but did nothing to abate the ongoing malady.

She found herself a seat in front of his stacked desk, but was surprised to find the teacher wasn’t joining her. He was still stood up, waiting expectantly for her to notice him. The lamps were dimmer in this part of the dungeon, and Lily couldn’t help but feel like the darkness was making her uncomfortable. Thinking back though, all of Snape’s potions classes had always been this devoid of light, which was possibly to blame for the poor test results a lot of his students received in their end of year exams.TG - Harry Potter and the Descendent Covenant 711 months ago in Romance More Like This
“Is there a problem sir?” Lily asked, trying not to sound to angry at her lot in life.

As she grew closer, the assembled could hear the slightest, faintest, singing coming from her hands. It was divine, like that of mermaids or other beautiful magical creatures. Despite her appearances, Luna did seem to be proving herself knowledgable in areas even Hermione wasn’t aware of. Their skepticism was fleeting, and Lily began to feel warm and confident, as if all her troubles would be over soon.
That was, until she sat down next to them, and the singing stopped. It was as if she crossed a magical border, and what was once singing turned into the ugliest screaming and grunting that everyone, perhaps not Hagrid, had ever beheld.

TG - Harry Potter and the Descendent Covenant 17While Sirius may not have been replying to her messages, Lily was discovering that Hogwarts could be the escape from her troubles she had previously imagined it to be. Despite the fact that the student body were easily influenceable by rumour and actively pursued any scandalous developments with a zeal that would have made Rita Skeeter blush, they also had relatively short attention spans. Where Lily had been the flavour of the month time and again, once it was clear to some of the more fickle students that she wasn’t going to be all that entertaining, they moved their eyes elsewhere. Usually she would have been glad of their flighty nature, but Ron’s behaviour on the Quidditch field had drawn some in depth analysis of his own. Lily could walk the corridors as if under an invisibility cloak with Ron by her side, but she didn’t exactly want to exploit his notoriety for privacy.TG - Harry Potter and the Descendent Covenant 1710 months ago in Romance More Like This

As a veteran of the polyjuice potion, just like Lily, Ron expected that there couldn’t be much worse than the putrid muck that they’d drank in their second year. However, he’d never seen a femstrobe reversal potion, a particularly poorly named concoction if there ever was one. Admittedly, Snape had never had to brew before, but from the looks of things, it required a hell of a lot of the blighters, whose body parts were floating on the top, a sight that was causing Hagrid some second thoughts.TG - Harry Potter and the Descendent Covenant 1310 months ago in Romance More Like This

Lily and Draco made a long, and rather awkward, trip through the castle, in search of a secluded area where they could converse. It was close to curfew, and they were hoping not to end up in detention together again, but nevertheless, Draco apparently had something on his mind. The cobblestone corridors of the lower castle were poorly lit, and given the fact that there were no windows, Lily found herself tempted to hold onto Malfoy for direction and balance. As a Slytherin he knew the passageways of this part of the castle far better than any other student ought to, but in reality Lily really just wanted to be close to him. In the end she fought against her urges, and instead just fell in step with him, not wanting to give the game away, especially in light of his behaviour over the previous few weeks.
Ever since the Battle of the Library, Draco had been sticking to familiar territory, and remained with his remaining Slytherin cohorts, effectively shutting out Lily from his life. They&

It was just before sunrise, and the ebbing glow of the morning was just about beginning to reflect off the ice and the snow, revealing a brightness, and with it, a sorry sight. The remaining soldiers were burying their comrades deep in the snow. Another seven had been killed in the short firefight that had occurred about five hours beforehand. With them, the three enemy casualties were joining them in the ground, one having fallen victim to Hagrid’s loose interpretation of offensive magic, and the other two having paid the ultimate price for their being captured. Someone out there hadn’t wanted them speaking, and so they’d been silenced forever.

She was walking back and forth in front of them for what had seemed like far too long, and really had the air about her of someone who was chilled to their core, thus she was exhibiting such a raging outward persona. As the head of Gryffindor house, it was her responsibility to punish the three students involved in the disturbance, just as it was Professor Snape’s duty to punish Draco.
