Ch. # Chapter Title Word Count Reviews
1 An Unwelcome Visitor

He was the one who was invading her home, and he was the one who would have to deal with the consequences of that decision.

1,934 57
2 The Lady of Greengrass Hall

It appeared that Lavinia Greengrass had perhaps, in the end, learned one secret too many.

2,051 40

"So you're saying this is about revenge?"

2,929 32
4 The Malediction Perfidious

“We all have scars, Mr. Malfoy."

7,066 19
5 The Stolen Truth

Here was one threat Astoria had no strategy for, one thing she hadn’t prepared to fight against.

5,413 18
6 A Changing Tide

“Somewhere, Draco Malfoy,” she said, tapping him lightly on the chest, those eyes, captivating and insistent as the tide, still pouring into his. “Somewhere, you still have a soul.”

7,467 16
7 A Family Affair

She wondered if he had always believed this, or if it was the madness speaking.

5,143 12
8 The Writing On the Wall

“Tell me you’re not doing something stupid tonight, Weasley.”

5,837 12
9 Behind the Bleeding Walls

She could live with not being a particularly good person, if it meant that she did get to live.

5,281 8
10 In Dark Spaces

People look away from tragedies.

6,988 6
11 An Admirable Thing

That is something that cannot be taken from you unwillingly. You certainly will still have your soul. 

2,105 8
12 Into The Sanctum

“Headquarters, Ernie. We agreed to call it Headquarters.”

5,605 4
13 A Rattle of Keys

Astoria, personally, did not think ‘the castle sent us’ was a highly compelling argument.

2,348 6
14 The Edge of Insanity

"There’s nowhere safe, so I suggest you pick a side, and bloody well stick to it.”

3,607 15
15 The Eyes of the Crowd

I suppose the invitations to the secret room, from the secret army just got lost on their way to the dungeons, did they?

7,703 7
16 The Weight of the Curse

She didn’t want to do this. This wasn’t a minor cruelty--a mocking laugh or knocking the books from someone’s arms--to make certain that she fit in, that she wasn’t suspected.

This was an Unforgivable.
(trigger warning for violence)

17 A Trace of Home

“I spent months as a prisoner with Mr. Ollivander. He taught me a lot about wands. They’re very interesting, you know. Yours especially.”

3,660 3
18 Beyond Blood and Bone

"Everyone inside is more or less a hostage."

2,971 3
19 An Unofficial Assistance

“This is going to blow up in your face. I’m telling you, I can feel it.”

7,966 7
20 A Dangerous Game

“Perhaps I should remind you that I don’t need magic to kill you and make it look like an accident.”

4,824 3
21 An Unexpected Ally

She was. In this moment, in this corridor, in her life. She was entirely alone.


TW: just to be on the safe side, due to some mentions of violence and a certain Death Eater being just...generally a creep. If you are sensitive to that sort of thing, this might not be the chapter for you. Leave a comment that you'd like a summary - sans creepiness - and I will do my best to provide one

4,015 2
22 A Dire Task

"We’ll talk later. But I need your help with this now. Neville isn’t out of danger yet.”

4,517 2
23 Gone to Ground

"This isn’t Hogwarts anymore. It’s time we started acting like it.”

3,242 2
24 An Intervention

It was fine. Astoria didn’t need Daphne. She didn’t need anyone. She could handle it all on her own.

5,063 5
25 An Uncomfortable Truth

It was about time the rest of them got a healthy dose of reality.

5,563 5
26 The Man in the Mirror

It wasn’t that he had some delusion that Astoria Greengrass had made him a better man. It was that she gave some home some mad kind of hope that, one day, he could be.
