Old faces, old rivals, and new romances. And guess what? Our favorite James Potter is once again a bachelor.
Mistakes & Regret
There was nothing but the sound of Norah's quiet cries, the rustle of the wind against the trees, and the lapping of the river water along the shore.
“How do you know James Potter?” Clancy asked.
“I’ll be brave and say what both of us know but neither are willing to admit: our relationship was already in jeopardy because of your anger. What will you ruin next? Your relationship with Al?”
A Cruel Reminder
“Don't apologize,” said Parker. “Some events leave painful scars.”
“What's done is done, and what matters is that I love him, and I know he loves me, too. That means we're both willing to forgive each other and work together to be a couple again.”
Confinement Cell #6
“Someone you should fear. He'll show you the true meaning of misery. He'll take everything you love, and just when you think you've fallen as far as you can, you'll realize you're wrong. You'll see just how far you can fall, Harry Potter, and it's a long way to the bottom.”
A Time To Act
The plan had already been set in motion, and it was time that Parker caught up with the game.
“Don’t worry, Al,” laughed Parker. “I’ve done my damage. The rest will come. All in good time.”
“The wound and his pain will only worsen with time. We can only make him comfortable now.”
“This wasn't a random jumping in the streets!” cursed Harry under his breath. “This was planned. This was strategized, and this was made personal!”
“Don't doubt me,” threatened Harry. “I will always do whatever it takes to save my children.”
Truth Will Out
“Dad,” he asked, his voice nothing more than a whisper, “whose horcrux is this?”
It was now or never, and she knew it. She didn't know what she was thinking or what her plan was, but she found herself treading into treacherous waters before she could think twice.
“You just have one choice to make, so which will it be? Al's life? Or Dominique's?”
An Inevitable Fate
He had to know. And he was a Seer, wasn't he? With enough concentration, couldn't he will himself some sort of prophecy? He knew the answer to that was no, but he had long ago been deemed the greatest Seer in the world. His strength was beyond comprehension; therefore, James believed anything was possible.
Goodbye Little Brother
Albus had heard. He had heard every word. He was going to die. And soon, too.
Loving a Mad Man
“I had some news I thought I’d share with you,” he said with a smirk. “You’ve had a death in the family.”
A Weapon Yet to Espy
“I demanded to know Al’s fate. Whatever part of me that predicts the future, I demanded it to tell me if he would live or die. It took a lot of effort, but it worked. I made a prophecy about his death. What if I could do the same again? What if I could demand to know where she is?”
“As soon as I walk out that door, you’re no longer Teddy Lupin but Parker Namken.”
Take Him Down
The deep and burning desire furthest back in Harry’s mind, though, was the hope that this could all end with Parker Namken’s death in less than 24 hours.
“Albus wasn’t the—” Parker stopped and clamped his mouth shut as he caught himself nearly saying something he hadn’t told anyone.
“You—killed—my—son,” hissed Harry.
Undesirable No. 1
“Hermione…” began Harry gravely. “They’re here to swear you in as Minister for Magic.”
The Calm Before the Storm
Harry had married them beneath the stars and intimate candlelight.
The Beating Locket
“So you’re telling me that…that locket right there is prepared to receive a horcrux, and I…”
“I thought I was dead. When I realized I wasn’t, I couldn’t fathom how I could have possibly survived everything that day—the Killing Curse that sent me over the ledge, the fall, the impact of the water, or the freezing cold of it. But this…This would answer everything. This would explain why I survived that day. I couldn’t die.”
“My relationship with Clancy has nothing to do with this,” snapped Parker.
The Potters had just been puppets on the ends of strings being held by Parker, bending and breaking at his will because they had no leads.
“Please,” he begged. “I don’t have much time, but come with me. You don’t have to go back to him. Come with me, and I’ll make sure you’re safe. You and…And the baby.”
Once More into the Fray
Parker ran at Clancy with his brow pulled together in utter betrayal and hatred. He grasped her by her jacket and began to shout wildly. “You brought him here, didn’t you?!”
Do Not Go Gentle
Then Harry and James looked across the field of debris to Parker and Pansy. And in that moment, there they were—a mother and her son fighting for what they believed in, and a father his son doing the same. They were all vulnerable in their own way; they were all fueled by their own desires. They were all the same in that moment and yet so different.
“He cannot be saved. The one you hold on to so dearly faces an inevitable fate. He has reached his end and has naught but two days to live. Fear not, though. He shall return to you when you reach your darkest hour.”
Hell Hath No Fury
They had to take the opportunity James had given them. They had to spring while Parker was weak.
Even though she was unsure if he was ready to talk about it yet, she broached the topic they had both clearly been trying to avoid: who he was and who he would be without Parker. “And how are you…How are you feeling?”
His Name is Albus
