cover by Leela Starsky


Harry's seventh and final year of school at Hogwarts. In a time of uncertainty, the Muggle world has found a source of comfort and stability. Only Harry suspects that it isn't safe. Wizards are more concerned about themselves than Muggles since Voldemort's return, but are only Muggles at risk? Will anyone listen to Harry? He must decide whether Draco Malfoy is ultimately friend or foe and discover the identity of the Daughter of War and get her help in defeating Voldemort; and finally, Harry must decide whether to make a sacrifice that will change him -- and the wizarding world.

The Author Looks Back

At any rate, in observance of the tenth anniversary of the first fic, starting on the day I began posting it in 2001 (somewhere around the third week of May--I'll check the exact date before I begin), I'll post about what I posted on that day on the day I originally posted it. Sort of an annotated version of the fic without putting in footnotes or scribbles in the margins. Now, I expect to be doing a fair bit of face-palming during this process. When I was interviewed about the trilogy by the Potterfic Weekly folks last year I replied perfectly honestly, "Yeah, when I reread some of the early chapters I do wonder now, 'What was I thinking?' about some things." I'm the last person to believe anything I've written is sacrosanct. That was part of what made it such a valuable learning experience for me. And now I can look back and laugh and marvel at what an innocent I was. (Oh my GOD, chapter five. CHAPTER FIVE. WHAT WAS I THINKING?)... [3]
