Summary :

This is AU now that Order of the Phoenix has been published. It begins in the middle of Harry's Fifth Year and is a Severitus challenge. Harry struggles with his losses and isolates himself from everyone around him.

This is still a WIP (work-in-progress).

Update, 09/2003 :

Chapter 12 is up. Additionally, I have edited all chapters for grammar as well as adding things in that have previously been omitted or badly stated. Chapters 1-12 have been beta'ed.
