AN: This fic presumes that Sevie stopped Harry and the rest of them before they went to the department of mysterious and that Voldie staged a devastating attack on Diagon Alley instead which not only announced his return to the world but cost many innocent lives.

DISCLAIMER: I do not own Harry Potter no matter how much I wish I did.

The Price of Peace

Chapter 1

The Terms

A letter from the Dark Lord Voldemort to the Ministry of Magic shortly after Harry Potter's fifth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry:

AN: So I don't know if I should continue with this or not. It has been waiting in my computer gathering dust just begging to be posted for a while now and I do have the next chapter written but I am not if I even want to post it and I probably won't update so you tell me if the idea is good or not. This idea is kind-of done a lot…
