The battle was over. The victors woke into a new dawn, a new era had been born. They were free to live, free to find happiness, free to love. But a cloud drew across their world almost unnoticed, a darkness gathered strength. A new plot conceived. Vengeance approached. Harry must face a new battle, a war for his very being. A story of the 14 months after the battle of Hogwarts.
First published on HPFF, since re edited and expanded, this novel length fic was the first I wrote after a three decade break from creative writing.

Please read "Harry Potter & the New Marauders", if you haven't already. Otherwise, you'll really need the recap in Chapter 1! This is the continuation of Teddy Lupin's first year at Hogwarts, and we begin with that recap of Book 1. Please also see "The Minstrel Boy" and "The 12th Moon" for additional backstory that might help, as they do tie into this one. We begin with the boys going home for Christmas, and with one of them finding that it might not be so easy to go home after such a long time. Canon characters not in list: Fenrir Greyback, Colin Creevey.
The prologue and first two chapters of this story intertwine with the last two chapters and epilogue, (covering, roughly, the last two weeks of term), of my sixth year story ‘What Goes Around…Comes Around…Lost And Found…Love’. If you haven’t read it, you’d better go through that one, or none of this story will make any sense.
