Sirius is acting like ice and Serena's tired of it. But when her chance comes to speak up, will she? Or will she let him take the lead? A conversation in the Owlery leaves a few people wondering "What now?" and a plate of mashed potatoes ends up where food normally shouldn't be. Enjoy!

20 The Official First Day of Unofficially Officially Being Mrs. Black

The Big Chapter 2-0! In Word, this chapter turned out to be 20 pages long, so that's how much I love all of you! :) ------- So Serena has finally taken the plunge. But how long will it last? Follow along as Serena attends Quidditch (late as always!), gets a scare, feels like she now has a mortal enemy, wonders if she's just the new squeeze, and has a run-in with James in the library (I know, right?). What's a girl to do?

After stopping by and having some alone-time in the library with a good book, Serena finds herself bumping into someone unexpected and having her world turned upside-down. ...again.

32 The Winter Chronicles

 [Hufflepuff / Ravenclaw Game] [Winter Ball]

Serena attends the next Quidditch match with her girls, tries to calm down some arguments, spends some time with her boyfriend, and then heads off to an unexpected--and very intense (and romantic)--Winter Ball. Here, she accompanies her date to the dancefloor, gets a surprise cut-in from the Slytherin Snake (Yup, he's back!), instigates a conversation with a childhood friend, and ends the night curled up with some drink. And things will never be the same.

33 Crimson Orchard
