If someone had told George Weasley just yesterday that it was possible to feel this much pain and still be alive, he would have laughed in their face and called them a liar.

2 A Little Wounded

“You gonna be okay, mate?” Ron asked as they walked wearily through the halls.

Didn’t I just finish one?

The shouted curse fell on Percy’s ears like a hammer as he opened his brother’s hospital room door and walked right into a nightmare.

11 Unexpected Help

Moving slowly, Arthur Weasley made his way through the twists and turns of Diagon Alley, his heart heavy but resolved. That stubborn British will that hadn’t admitted defeat through centuries of trials wasn’t about to surrender now.  The wizarding community would rebuild – again – like a phoenix from the ashes and life would go on.
