Twenty years ago, the Muggle population of Great Britain was nearly wiped out by a devastating Dark spell cast by Lord Voldemort. In the aftermath, the survivors discovered that they could not leave the barren isles; Voldemort's Ministry in London and Dumbledore's refugee camp in Hogwarts were all but alone with each other.
That was then. This is now. It is the summer of 1996, and both sides have realised that they have little hope of survival if they cannot band together. With Hogsmeade newly declared neutral ground, and Hogwarts finally open not only to Dumbledore's people but to the children of London, an experiment in peace is about to begin. But two decades of cold war have left terrible scars. The people of Britain are living under a flag of tentative truce, not surrender. Though tensions rise, new bonds are forged, and there is a glimmer of hope on the horizon: maybe, just maybe, they can put aside their differences for the good of all.
