This story has a bit of everything in it. Humor, romance, Slytherin schemes, and mystery! Set during Christmas Holiday in Hermione's fifth year. Lupin visits McGonagall, Snape has a strange dream, Draco falls for Hermione, and Trelawney has a vision.

The vast majority of this story was written between 2003 and 2005, before the release of The Order of the Phoenix. I suffered from writer's block before I could finish the last few chapters, but I have experienced a sudden resurgence of inspiration and am working tirelessly to sew all my loose ends together.
