From her dark hair sweeping below her waist to her soft, sexy curves, Tenley Page intrigues tattoo artist Hayden Stryker in a way no one else ever has…especially when she asks him to ink a gorgeous, intricate design on her back. Yet for all her beauty, there is something darkly tragic and damaged about Tenley that Hayden is everything.
You're already familiar with what life is like at Hogwarts, but what about other corners of the wizarding world?
Hidden within the Schwarzwald, Innestrad Academy of Magical Arts is not your typical school for magic. Here, where all sorts of creative passions are more than encouraged, students from all around the globe choose to continue their regular education by opting to specialize in various unusual and complex subjects.
One of which is music!
Innestrad is renown for its traditional musical festivals, where studentformed bands compete for the vote of the crowd in an attempt to make their way to stardom, find themselves spiritually or simply to become popular among their peers.
Daynen and Orianna have been best friends for quite some time, all the while playing in the most famous school band - Wands High. The band has been dominant for the past several years in the Battle of the Bands contest, but with their 7th year initially starting as normal, fractures within the group become visible, as long-suppressed opinions and musical differences quickly come into view.
Everyday life suddenly becomes even more interesting with the arrival of several groups of exchange students from some of the most famous of magical schools, as well as a pair of Aurors leading an investigation which could quickly indicate a serious, imminent danger.
As Daynen, a once somewhat wild and carefree party animal and favorite of the crowd, now basically wanting nothing more but to play his guitar and be left alone by people, tries to once again rediscover who he is, he finds himself drawn to a certain surprisingly knowledgeable young witch from Hogwarts. With that the path he had mapped out for himself is about to head into a completely different direction, changing his life and ultimately, the future of Innestrad itself...
Friends will become foes as new alliances, both forced and spontaneous, will be formed. The struggle towards the Great Prize has never been fiercer...
Oliver Wood and Ellie Diggory have been friends for years, even though all of their classmates swear that they should be more than that.
Oliver is a powerful muggle-born wizard who has to hide his extraordinary magical abilities. Other than that he is just a normal teenager who wants to pass his OWLS and NEWTS and maybe win the Quidditch cup for Gryffindor.
Ellie is a strong and fiery Hufflepuff who would do anything to support and protect her best friend.
Fourth year brings first loves and heartbreaks along with a new Gryffindor seeker named Harry Potter. When Oliver receives an invitation to join the deatheaters he must choose which side he will stand on and if he will fight for what he believes in.
Fifth year brings Oliver a new potions partner whose parents were known supporters of Voldemort. When muggle-born students start being mysteriously attacked can the two of them find common ground and overcome the blood-supremacy mentality that has divided the wizarding world for centuries.
Oliver, Ellie, and their friends find themselves unknowingly pulled into a plot to defeat Voldemort that is bigger than any of them. All they can do is take it one day at a time.
*Starts going AU between fourth and fifth year when Oliver takes it upon himself to not let Harry stay in an abusive environment*
Twenty-six year old Jacoline Holcombe believes herself quite firmly on the shelf. Faced with an unfulfilling silent life, she abandons all propriety, dresses in men's clothing, and goes fencing with her brother. There, due to terrible luck and even worse planning, "Jack" is introduced to - and tries to curtsy to - the reserved and unapproachable Duke of Aspen.
Aspen is scarred over most of his face and body. He is accustomed to fending off the advances of fortune hunters and their mothers and has never known a woman to want anything more from him. Self-conscious and cynical, he dislikes social occasions and avoids the company of women. Faced with an awkward and oddly effeminate young man, however, he goes out of his way to be kind.
Believing her a gentleman, Aspen shows Jacoline a man's life in Regency-era London and trusts her with his secrets. But as much as Jacoline comes to respect and love the Duke of Aspen, she is living a lie and the truth would ruin her. She does not know that her actions also risk exposing her brother's secret: an illegal male lover and a family hidden from the world. After Aspen discovers Jacoline's lies and the house of cards begins to fall, Jacoline must beg the man she secretly loves to save her brother...

The world became mundane with little magic, and even less hope. Tyrants have risen, and those able to wield what is left of magic are powerful. Forces surge in the darkness that threaten to topple the already fragile world. The plight of the world of Avern is not unknown, however, and those that watch from a distance have decided to intervene. The mortals are sleeping, however, unknowing that two great powers will soon by vying for control.Then something happens that changes things. A young princess makes a bid for power by murdering her father. She then attempts to murder her sister, the crown princess of Lineria, Keiara. Despite a true strike, aided by dark powers, Keiara doesn’t die. Instead, the strike pierces the barrier between her human soul and the soul sleeping within her, the soul of the Dark Phoenix. More than a goddess, the Dark Phoenix is the legendary mother of the gods. She is a part of the Eternal Phoenix that brought life to their world eons ago, one of the primal forces of the cosmos.
Love or Loathe? It's always a matter of questions with this mysterious girl. Always seen smiling by her friends, but sarcastic and slightly cold to everyone else. What's the truth behind her?

The story of the founding of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the 10th Century CE. This is a story of Godric Gryffindor (a lion), Rowena Ravenclaw (an eagle), Salazar Slytherin (a serpent), and Helga Hufflepuff (a badger). Everyone knows that Hogwarts was founded by four of the most brilliant but disparate wizards. But what not everyone knows is the story of how they came to be friends; how united they were with the vision of a formal school providing an extensive magical education for a united British wizarding community before the concept of a united Britain was ever borne. Nobody knows of the complicated and nuanced relationships between them nor the depth of their relationship; and of the joy and heartache that came from it. The story of Hogwarts is the story of Britannia itself. The story of the Founders Four is the story of magic.
This is first part of a two-part planned long fic of the story of the Founders Four.
The war is over. Tom Marvolo Riddle, more popularly known as Lord Voldemort, the Heir of Slytherin, the Dark Lord, You-Know-Who, He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named, has been defeated by Harry James Potter, the Boy Who Lived, the Chosen One, the Youngest Seeker of the Century.
But it's not over yet. Too many have died to achieve this victory. The death eaters are looking for an opportunity to gain power. The world needs to be rebuild.
How will Harry bear the loss? How will he stop the death eaters?

1995: Some say Voldemort is back, others say no, it's only a rumor. For Branda Burke, a newly graduated Slytherin, a more pressing matter is finding a home for herself and her four younger siblings away from Knockturn Alley and their harsh uncle. After meeting Lucius Malfoy, the elder wizard becomes intrigued by Branda, becoming a much needed benefactor, giving her money and gifts for her siblings. Abandoned by her mother and desperate to find her father, a vulnerable Branda welcomes the attention given her by Malfoy and his associates, who slowly groom her into a potential recruit — as a Death Eater.
*** Recruitment patterns — from “Handbook on Children Recruited and Exploited by Terrorist and Violent Extremist Groups” (c) “Infection”: when the target population is difficult to reach, an “agent” can be inserted to pursue recruitment from within, employing direct and personal appeals.
