    Summary

    Nearly a decade after his relationship with Draco Malfoy imploded, Harry has a good life. He’s riding a wave of entrepreneurial success in muggle Chicago, and, for the first time ever, he's beholden to no one. Meanwhile, Draco is in London, making a name for himself in politics, and appears to be happily married. And so what if neither one of them has ever stopped thinking about the way things used to be?

    Everything changes, though, when Draco shows up in Chicago and asks Harry to run as his Deputy Minister of Magic. It's a terrible idea, but before Harry knows it, he's leaving his life behind, buying a townhouse in London, and hitting the campaign trail.

    Old feelings and long-buried secrets are unearthed as Harry and Draco fight to save the world from the newest version of wizarding supremacists. Soon, it becomes clear that nothing they thought they knew about their past was true, and the truth is more dangerous than they ever imagined.

    Summary

    "We don’t drown. We float. That’s how Muggles used to tell, isn’t it?"

    -

    When Regulus is five, he nearly drowns in the sea off Blackpool.

    When Regulus is eleven, his brother befriends a ghost.

    It’s not until Regulus is eighteen and ready to die that the Black family’s darkest secret finally unravels. It might, perhaps, change everything.

    (A coming-of-age story with mind magic, star charting, pink petit-fours, two diaries, and a ghost.)

    Summary

    The Dementor finds him again. It always does. Remus feels it before he sees it.

    “You’re not my friend,” he tells it.

     The Dementor does nothing, says nothing. Remus expected nothing less, because what else would happen? He’s approaching as mad as Sirius Black, if he thinks he’ll get a reply from a loosely held together mass of soul and despair.

     1993. Remus Lupin has enough ghosts and spectres following him around the castle, without a Dementor following him as well.

    James. Lily. Peter. Black has escaped from Azkaban, and shouldn’t Remus say something about that? And the other Black. Regulus.

    It isn’t any surprise the Dementor is interested in him.

    Summary

    Revenge is the misguided attempt to transform shame and pain into pride. Being forsaken and neglected, ignored and forgotten, revenge seems a fairly competent obligation at this point.
    Skylar is the boy who lived, that's why he's important. I'm not Skylar.

    I’m going to tell you a story, although it’s a bit long. I’m going to make you listen, because I want you to understand how you made me a monster. I’ll call this story antithesis, and you’re going to learn every single moment where things went wrong. I want you to cry, and beg for me to kill you, and when I’m done with this, you’re going to want to do that to yourself. You’re going to listen, because in the end, you owe me that much. You owe me so much more, but here we are, and this is how it’s going to end. Who knows, maybe this useless battle between you and me and this bloody world, well, maybe we always were fated to kill each other.

    Do you know what it is like to be unmade?
