Summary: Imagine if you had a good life: one with a family who loved you and great friends who would do anything for you, maybe even a boyfriend whom you really liked and maybe even loved and he returned your feelings. But then one night all of that was ripped away. And now everyone who was dear to you hates you because you have been forced to become someone you would never would have chosen to be. What if there was no escape, not even death? This is the story of my life, for I learned so long ago that there is no such thing as "Happily Ever After."

Summary: It is a blustery day in Hogsmeade, and Arthur and Bill Weasley are minding their own business. That is, until they each receive letters instructing them to mind each other's business in a most intrusive and rather final sort of way.
But this is not just about Arthur and Bill. They happen to be a small part of a much bigger, much more ambitious scheme that they know nothing about, run by a frighteningly powerful organization. What exactly is going on, and what exactly will Arthur and Bill do?
Written as an entry for the Gauntlet, by Schmerg_The_Impaler of Hufflepuff house (most of the Bill bits) and Neville's Girl of Slytherin house (most of the Arthur bits). Probably the strangest thing either of us has ever written.
