James and Harry are dead; killed by Voldemort. Lily was spared. Griefstricken but determined, she sets out to avenge their deaths. Everyone that played a part must suffer: Their traitorous secret-keeper, the Dark Lord himself... But what Lily didn't count on was that her childhood friend, who insists on joining her on her quest, also played a role in the tradegy.

1 Halloween Night

As Voldemort tried to shove her away, Lily had a terrible thought: She didn’t have to die. She could save herself.

2 The Secret-Keeper

“It makes me feel better, doing something,” Lily admitted. “And, I… I want to avenge their deaths. I won’t stop until I do.”
“How do you plan on doing that?”
“I don’t know,” she sighed. “But I will. Or I’ll die trying.”

3 Horcruxes

 “Killing Voldemort isn’t as straightforward as killing anyone else…”
Lily frowned. “I know it will be hard for me to track him down, and then I’ll probably have to duel him, but—”
“That’s the least of your worries, for the time being,” Dumbledore interjected. “As of now, even if you were able to point your wand and Voldemort’s head and say ‘Avada Kedavra,’ it wouldn’t kill him.”

4 The Deathly Hallows

The Invisibility Cloak… the fabled Elder Wand… and, lastly, the Resurrection stone: The one that had most captivated him, and had evaded him longest.

5 The Dark Mark

It was the hideous skull and snake, chillingly familiar, tattooed into his pale skin.

6 Malfoy Manor

“The hard times are over. The enemies are defeated. The Order of the Phoenix is all but destroyed. They have no rallying point now that their false-savior, the boy, is dead. No hope. No chance.”

“I want you to know that I could kill you and get off scot-free. There’s so much chaos around these days, who would notice? Who would miss you?”

8 Tom Riddle

“Voldemort grew up in an orphanage. The building is in ruins now, but I think if were to go there… you might find something. It certainly couldn’t hurt.”

“I know a bad lead when I see one. There are no Horcruxes here!”

10 Confessions

“Do you know why the Dark Lord targeted your family and Harry in particular?”
Lily nodded bleakly. “There was a prophecy.” Her voice was flat. She ran her hands through her hair. “Listen, I don’t want to talk about this…”
“I have to tell you!” Severus blurted. “I can’t stand it anymore.”

11 The Hunt Continues

“I will not claim to know there is a Horcrux there, but there’s a good chance,” Dumbledore said.

12 The Cave

In the bottom of the basin, clearly visible through the liquid, was a locket. Salazar Slytherin’s locket… one of the Horcruxes.

13 R.A.B.

“Who’s R.A.B.?” Lily asked, snagging his arm as he passed. “Sirius, who is it?”
He looked up at her, his expression bewildered. “My brother.”

14 Parseltongue

“Well, I was thinking,” Sirius began in a conspiratorially low voice, “we can’t very well find a person who speaks Parseltongue to open the locket for us, right?”

Lily frowned in disappointment. “Yeah, that’s the problem.”

“But we don’t have to use a person…”

“I daresay the Dark Lord must be more careful about whom he trusts,” Bellatrix said.

“Now we’ve got to figure out how to break into Gringotts. I don’t know if anyone’s done that and lived to tell the tale.”

17 Gringotts

“Someone broke into my vault!”

“That’s impossible, Madam, you can’t break into Gringotts.”

“I know exactly who he is and exactly what he took. You will not let anyone out of this bank until we find him.”

“For the past few months, we have been on a special… mission. And now we need your help.”

19 Where Everything is Hidden

Only a few seconds had passed, and Voldemort was circling Severus and ready to strike. Lily didn’t have the time to think—she had to act.

20 The Master of Death

“Severus wasn’t the only one who knew about your Horcruxes. And the cup and Nagini aren’t the only ones that have been destroyed. We’ve got all of them. The diadem, the locket, the ring and the diary. They’re all gone. You’re a mortal man once more. There’s nothing to keep you from dying when I strike.”
