|Originally written prior to the release of OotP, this is the August 2009 re-edited incarnation of Harry Potter and the Third Key, a broadly canon-style, 360,000 word fifth-year fic that's now firmly, firmly AU.|
Sword fights, apocalyptic battles, new kinds of magic. Love, betrayal, angst. Doing the right thing, doing the wrong thing, and doing it in style.
This is epic. This is dark. This is TTK:Reloaded.

Professor Vellum launches the Muggle fencing club, and Harry finds himself with an unexpected partner for the term's first Hogsmeade weekend.
