The Minister of Magic has died unexpectedly, and Barnabas Oldridge has been asked to step into the void.

Stuck in France for his seventh year, Justin Finch Fletchley grasps out for reminders of home.

Didn't like the ending to How to tame a Marauder? Well, I tried writing another one to see how it would turn out. I think it has holes you can drive a truck through, but that's by the by.
A series of one-shots based around How to tame a Marauder, featuring deleted scenes, missing moments and different POVs.
Thanks to mizzxpearl, DarkRose and NGSeries from the old HPFF, who helped come up with the story title.

As Sirius led me around the room, I took a deep breath and looked up at him firmly.
“So, was it a bet or a dare?”
“What are you talking about?” he asked, shiftily enough to tell me my guess had been right. When his eyes drifted to where James was sitting by the far wall, I grinned.
“Don’t play dumb. We both know you’d never ask me to dance in a million years. Not with ninety-five percent of the girls here gagging for it, and, well, I’m not. Besides, Potter just gave you the thumbs up.”
He groaned. “Are we really that obvious? Okay, yes, it was a dare.”
