↳ "You think the dead we loved truly ever leave us? You think that we don’t recall them more clearly in times of great trouble?"
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013).
“Suicide is a form of murder - premeditated murder. It isn’t something you do the first time you think of doing it. It takes getting used to. And you need the means, the opportunity, the motive. A successful suicide demands good organization and a cool head, both of which are usually incompatible with the suicidal state of mind.”

In castles of glass —
It is the year 2022, a whole twenty-five years since the defeat of He Who Must Not Be Named. A lot changes in twenty-five years. A new government, a whole new Wizarding world, an anniversary commemorating the war quickly approaches. Life is…calm, routine, normal. A hard fought and hard won peace has settled on Wizarding society, while in the background reconstructive efforts continue under the ever vigilant, ever watchful eye of the Ministry. A new Minister for Magic has been voted into office on a platform that promises to continue the work and uphold the policies of the Shacklebolt era, the once disgraced Bagnold family returns to power, but Minister Shacklebolt’s shoes –vacant now for ten years due to health problems and a wish to focus on his family– are difficult to fill. Still, three Ministers in ten years, and Wizarding England is itching for stability.
The hunt for those loyal to the Dark Lord is over: those witches and wizards designated a threat to society’s continued interest in peace continue to serve their sentences in Azkaban Prison as war criminals. Some sentences are considerably longer than others, while others will see their release perhaps as early as the coming year. Lord Voldemort built his regime on the pillars of distrust and discrimination, anchored in violence and blood purity, but the destruction of his authority has left a legacy of confusion: wizards and witches Pureblood and Muggle Born alike struggle to forge for themselves an identity separate from the choices of their families. In the wake of peace, some will succeed. Others will not. Wizarding England and its Ministry are a very different place. In the shadows bygone sentiments and anger inevitably linger.
But it’s a new day. Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry has been rebuilt, entrusted to the stern hand and watchful eye of its Headmistress, Minerva McGonagall. In the interest of safety, an Auror Outpost has been constructed by the Ministry in Hogsmeade, to better defend the students and staff, as well as the residents of the village at the base of the school. Schooling has also resumed; the professors welcome anyone willing to work hard under their tutelage. In the halls and dormitories of the castle, new faces have been put to old blood and old names. Love, hate, magic, mystery, mischief, danger – nothing else has changed. You can’t expect anything else from a school so deeply rooted in its traditions, however unorthodox they may be. So the question must be asked: when the time comes and a choice must be made, how will you carve a name for yourself? Will you find your place amidst these pillars of history and tradition?
