Summary: A fateful accident propels Hermione, Harry, and Snape forward to their destinies. Will they serve Hogwarts ancient purpose or will they fall prey to the latest incarnation of seductive old evils? coughLilycough Their resolve will shape the new millennium.

If you want to see the dark underbelly of the Wizarding world; if you hate all the Weasleys; if you like a writing style so oblique that even the explanations are confusing (expressive, but still confusing); then this may be the story for you. Perhaps.

This story folds, staples, bends and mutilates Harry Potter canon until it is unrecognisable. Oh, the people you thought were evil are still evil, but the people you thought were good are evil too, with a handful of exceptions. The story is soaked in malice and hatefulness. For the love of Merlin, don't read it. If you do, then you will need brain bleach in the form of kittens and sunshine, or songs about The Mississippi Squirrel Revival.
