A new school year at Hogwarts is starting for the Golden Quartet, and it doesn't look good.
As the Marauders try to pick up the pieces of a damaged friendship and Harry struggles to get used to a new family and a new identity, Neville has to deal with his resentment for a role in the wizarding world that wasn't supposed to be his and discovers that maybe there's a reason if he belongs in Slytherin.
Meanwhile something obscure is crawling, menacing the safety of the students inside the castle...

Leanna Selwyn is a pureblood orphan who was taken in by the Longbottoms at the age of four. Her biggest misfortune is her natural tendancy to be evil and sarcastic. It could have been all right if James Sirius Potter and Fred Weasley were not in the same grade as her.
James is talented. Leanna is only gifted with a good memory. They have absolutely nothing in common save one - They both hate each other's guts.
Children. Warriors. Heroes. Victims. Survivors.
Harry Potter and his friends struggle to move on with their lives after the Second Wizarding War.
Sometimes to know where you're going, you have to face where you've been.
Sometimes to know the true meaning of friendship, you have to take a journey in the dark.

The War revealed many truths about humankind...the most important of those truths is that all humans are innately inclined to violence and chaos. We are hosts to an entire horde of plaguing ailments like jealousy and greed and we lack the physical and emotional capabilities to cope with such diseases. That is how the War started. That is how the world ended. That is why there is a grand nothingness on the Outside, beyond the walls of the Sovereignty.

Magic is a gift. A tool to change the world. But the wizarding world has fallen into a new age of darkness and fear, walling itself away. Scorpius Malfoy tried to fight that once, and lost.

Then she saw it. Two broken, wavy lines across the top of his wrist, not pink from the coffee spill, but actually glowing from under his skin. At the same time, she felt her own wrist burn like it never had before. The marks were shockingly familiar, like the underside of her own arm. They matched hers.
No. It couldn’t be this man. There had to be some mistake.

Some people need only a single second chance at life to realign themselves with who they wish to be. Others require many more second chances.
