Welcome to the second books in my Hecatemus series. I very much hope you will enjoy it. It is the sequel to Gold Tinted Spectacles (

The fanon for this story was created in 2003 when I wrote Gold Tinted Spectacles, prior to the release of Half Blood Prince, so it does not take into account anything we have learned after Order of the Phoenix. It does not use Horcruxes, Dumbledore didn't die etc, and so it is completely AU after OOTP. This includes all the information about birthdays etc that came after the books.

It only took me 12 years to get round to finishing it! ;-)

Happy reading!


Many thanks to my beta reader Sophie, without whom this would be full of so many mistakes.
