Summary: "Remember Cedric. Remember, if the time should come when you have to make a choice between what is right and what is easy, remember what happened to a boy who was good, and kind, and brave, because he strayed across the path of Lord Voldemort. Remember Cedric Diggory." ***
The night Cedric died, four people reacted in very different ways. Here are their stories.

Summary: It's the end of an era, a hero is dead.
But what to write on a grave?
Summary: Remus can remember it as clear as day. The noise is what he remembers most. Shouting and screaming and the sound of the castle being slowly destroyed around him. The heat as well. Many people don’t remember the heat, but it was there. Sweat dripping from every man, woman and child.
What was going through Remus Lupin's mind on his last moments on this earth?
My version of how Remus and Tonks died. Slightly AU.

Summary: We find out what goes through Harry, Ron and Hermione's minds as they listen to a Potterwatch, but what goes through the minds of other listeners, the casters, and what news do they bring?
Summary: "You are no sister of mine"
Just how did the infamous Black sisters go from being best friends to bitter enemies, and who is "the other black girl?"...It might not be who you think. A story of love, secrecy and betrayal.
Summary: For decades he has been known as Knockturn Alley's most notorious go-to wizard. Renowned as a first-class potions master and prized by crooks and Dark wizards everywhere for his discretion and endless contacts in the wizarding underworld, he has only ever been known as 'Charlie'. Yet when a mysterious new Dark wizard calling himself Voldemort begins to send waves throughout wizarding Britain, Charlie finds himself befriended by good and evil alike. As his carefully constructed world begins to disintegrate and the battlelines are drawn, this old hand suddenly finds himself at the center of a growing reign of terror, in which his every decision could mean life or death.
A huge thank you to my wonderful beta, Sapphire at Dawn, for both reading my story and exchanging countless emails to help me hammer out all the little details!
Summary: I have an ominous feeling that trouble is brewing. Call it whatever you want—foresight into the future or a Slytherin’s sense of self-preservation. Either way, I know something is going to happen tonight and it’s not going to be good.
Peer into the mind of Daphne Greengrass on the night of the Battle at Hogwarts

Summary: One above, two below. We know the boy's story, what about the girl's? One-Shot about Hermione's torture by Bellatrix.
Summary: The tale is set in Severus' sixth year at Hogwarts, during the surge of new young followers of the Dark Lord; Nagini Malfoy, the main female character, is a precursor to Voldemort's serpent.
Summary: The Second Wizarding War is at its peak. What does it look like to an observant seven-year-old Muggle boy?
Summary: If you knew that the consequence of doing the right thing might be torture, or even death, would you still do it?
This story was inspired by something Neville said in passing. “…And then Michael Corner went and got caught releasing a first year they’d [the Carrows] chained up, and they tortured him pretty badly…”
This is the untold tale of an unsung hero: Michael Corner.
Summary: Severus Snape, dangerously embroiled in his duties as Dumbledore's spy, encounters yet further obstacles when he begins to harbor feelings for a sixth year Gryffindor student. Succumbing to his desires sets in motion a chain of events that could very well destroy all that he and the opposition of Lord Voldemort have striven so hard to accomplish. Please keep in mind that this is written from the angle that Snape is no longer a follower of Voldemort, and that its events coincide with books 4, 5, and 6, with a slight continuation beyond HBP. (Chapters 1-15 need some fixing to work with Book 7.)
Summary: The Boy Who Lived discovers that he may not have escaped the Final Battle unscathed after all.
