In the midst of the madness, all hope lost...[/b]
The year is 1977, and trouble is brewing in the wizarding world. The world seems to stand, balanced as a coin on the edge of a knife. Outside of Hogwarts, wizards and witches everywhere live in fear - or else prey on the fearful. He Who Must Not Be Named has followers in every corner, lurking, as it were, behind every door. And no one knows who they can truly touch.
Chances of achieving no longer an option...[/b]
Within Hogwarts, it is not much different, especially among the older students. So close tot he real world, the young witches and wizards wish to be a part of one side or the other. Unable to join the organizations they support, they are forced to band together themselves. These student groups, good or bad, cause tension within the school. Fights break out. Students are injured. But they can do little, in the end, but watch as the world turns outside of their hands.
What you've been expecting and fearing is finally here...[/b]
The world is turning. Times are changing. A shadow is felt lying across the brows England. Even the Muggles have begun to notice the change in the tides, the funny murders, the things no one can (or will explain). The Ministry of Magic is at its busiest, most harried it's been in many, many years. And though he is not yet at the height of his powers, He Who Must Not Be Named can feel it, close to him. He need only reach out his hand, and all of the world shall be his...
But as long as things fell your way, devil may care...[/b]
...and maybe he's the only one.[/font]
