The Eyes of the Confessor: Fragments (Alternate Book 7) by PensieveMaster
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 3]
Summary: Update (8/5/11): For some reason, prior to the seventh book's release, I had this idea for how I would have conceived the Harry Potter to end. Without giving much away it would reveal that, despite Voldemort being at the forefront of the conflict within the wizarding world, there actually lie beneath the surface a much older, much more worrisome conflict. The story and its title are in part inspired by the Joe Walsh song "The Eyes of the Confessor," though the rest, of course, is all my own.
Also, and this is a side-note, this story was a way for me to get the Harry/Hermione shipping that I believe existed throughout the whole series. While not a romance story, it is definitely a Harry/Hermione story.
Initially, I had written this story out on paper, and was typing it into a final draft on my computer (while concurrently posting it here). However, a hundred pages into the story, I lost my manuscript. At that point, my inspiration for writing somewhat faded, and I abandoned writing the story. However, with the Harry Potter high that I've been riding since the film premiere of the second installment of The Deathly Hallows, I've been remembering much of the story and would like to continue writing it. These are brilliant characters, and writing them can be just as fun as reading them, even when I'm diverting away from what occurred in the original saga.
Let me just say: this takes a very, very different route from The Deathly Hallows. I don't plan to match or rewrite the such scenes as Snape's memory and the defeat of Voldemort, mostly out of the knowledge that I could do no good job in attempting to do so but also because that was not this particular vision of the end of the series. So, it would be best not to think of Rowling's conclusion when (correction, if) you read mine. Hers was brilliant; mine is just a little germ of a story that infected my mind one evening. I hope you enjoy it, if you so take the time.
Neither can live while the other survives... It is the beginning of Harry's quest for the remaining Horcruxes, and a year in which he may uncover surprising truths about Severus Snape, Albus Dumbledore--even Moaning Myrtle. Harry is running out of time in his search for the broken soul, and will he ever be ready for the final encounter with Lord Voldemort?

Summary: This chapter-by-chapter Fan Fiction tells the story of Albus Potter's first-year at Hogwarts.

Harry/Hermione, only not really

Summary: Hi, my name is Ron Weasley. I am currently on the run with my two best mates, Harry and Hermione. We are on a secret mission left to us by the late Professor Dumbledore in search of Horcruxes - pieces of the Dark Lord's soul. Don't tell anyone.
We have no idea what we're looking for nor where we should be looking. Sometimes I think Harry's just taking us all for a spin. All we know right now is two Horcruxes have been destroyed - Tom Riddle's diary and Marvolo Gaunt's ring. We have found another - Salazar Slytherin's locket, but are not sure how we can destroy it. So, for now, we're just camping out, trying to find a clue as to where we can find the next Horcrux.
Between you and me, I'm downright irritated with things going on in this tent.
Summary: This was inspired by a TV spot for the last film. "We never left." What if this were true, if there were some truth to that dearest wish we hold when we have lost someone? This explores the idea with different characters.

Summary: “And quite honestly,” he turned away from the painted portraits, thinking now only of the four-poster bed lying waiting for him in Gryffindor Tower, and wondering whether Kreacher might bring him a sandwich there, “I’ve had enough trouble for a life time.”*
In search of some peace and quiet, The Gryffindor boys are reunited after the Final Battle.
