As the daughter of the Dark Lord’s chief spy, Astoria Greengrass is well-acquainted with subterfuge. When her family’s loyalties are called into question, their lives will depend on her biggest deception yet.  But she’ll need all her wits, because the Death Eater she must deceive is Draco Malfoy, and the truth is, Astoria has a secret that could doom them all.

6 A Changing Tide

“Somewhere, Draco Malfoy,” she said, tapping him lightly on the chest, those eyes, captivating and insistent as the tide, still pouring into his. “Somewhere, you still have a soul.”

7 A Family Affair

She wondered if he had always believed this, or if it was the madness speaking.

“Headquarters, Ernie. We agreed to call it Headquarters.”

Astoria, personally, did not think ‘the castle sent us’ was a highly compelling argument.

14 The Edge of Insanity

"There’s nowhere safe, so I suggest you pick a side, and bloody well stick to it.”

I suppose the invitations to the secret room, from the secret army just got lost on their way to the dungeons, did they?

7703 7
16 The Weight of the Curse

She didn’t want to do this. This wasn’t a minor cruelty--a mocking laugh or knocking the books from someone’s arms--to make certain that she fit in, that she wasn’t suspected.

This was an Unforgivable.

21 An Unexpected Ally

She was. In this moment, in this corridor, in her life. She was entirely alone.


TW: just to be on the safe side, due to some mentions of violence and a certain Death Eater being just...generally a creep. If you are sensitive to that sort of thing, this might not be the chapter for you. Leave a comment that you'd like a summary - sans creepiness - and I will do my best to provide one

It was fine. Astoria didn’t need Daphne. She didn’t need anyone. She could handle it all on her own.

It was about time the rest of them got a healthy dose of reality.
