Status: WIP. Posting in progress.
Rating: PG-13 to hard R.
Warnings: Violence, hints of torture, suggestive to crude language, character deaths, angst.
Timeline: A year and a half post the marauders last year at Hogwarts: The first war continues.
Summary: The war continues with more battles and losses. Caught up in the middle, Buffy and co. have to do their best to find light in the darkness. Buffy search for her roots and a balance in her life: what does it means to be the Slayer in the new world she now calls home - but can answers be found anywhere but in Sunnydale? Voldemort's hold on Britain grows stronger and the Order weaker due to death and betrayal from within. Can a prophecy change the tide for the better or will its existence result in even more death?
