Men become accustomed to poison by degrees - Victor Hugo
It is October 1949: Lycus Malfoy is dying, quarantined in his house alone but for his wife, Adelaide, who still hopes there is a miracle cure; Eileen Prince has vanished into a Muggle life, washing the dead and arranging flowers, away from the sneers she endured at school; Cygnus and Orion Black are at war with each other even as they bury their secrets six feet deep.
There is a murderer on the loose, shrouded in paranoia, and the old structures, things of blood and age and time, are starting to crumble.
And a ship arrives from Lübeck bringing Tom Riddle home.

Yaxley had always considered himself lucky to be where he was in the Ministry. Gaining the position of Head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement wasn’t easy, nor was succeeding in placing the Imperius curse upon the Minister himself. He loved his job and position in life but all is about to change when falling asleep places him in someone else... that someone being Dolores Umbridge.

Banks of tall, pointed pine,

Pansy and Blaise never thought they'd get to live past their sixth yeras, let alone betray Draco in the way they never thought they would. Now, it's been three years since the war, and after rigorous trials, both are free with steady jobs and lives. What will they do when their best friend suddenly whisks a certain bushy-haired witch from the country?
She wasn't sure that she could love anyone.

Dominique Weasley had always seen herself as that meek girl with ink on her fingers and a nervous heart. The girl who faded into the background. The one you did not think twice of. To her that was never going to change. Until one day an opportunity arose that she could not pass up... a chance to study under one of the greatest living artists in the Wizarding world.
Soon she would find that she was a lot stronger than she thought.

Reserve Beater for the Tutshill Tornados. It sounded like a great career, but for Hollie Finnigan, it was a lot of bench warming and a chance for all of the people she ever told to ask, "Oh, so you know Roxanne Weasley? Can you get me her autograph?"
Hollie knew Roxanne all right. She was in love with her.
