Hello everyone! I apologize for the delay in getting the second story started. It has been a whirlwind of activity as Christmas draws nearer! My Christmas gift to you all is that I have finally put up the first chapter of the second story titled "Our Own Strange Little Family and the Founder's Elements". Hermione and Draco head to Hogwarts early much to their delight. Amidst making new friends and growing closer as a family, trouble is brewing. This new family's bond will be tested when loyalties are questioned, the past is brought to the present, and old enemies loom ever nearer. I hope you enjoy the second story! Happy reading!
