A/N: Many, many thanks to the Mods, for not only organizing the games, but also for their patience and understanding. Also, this story would not exist in any intelligible form if it weren't for the beta work of Bironic (LJ), [info]jadzialove, [info]mimiheart and [info]klynie1. I'm fairly sure I owe a portion of my soul to each of you for saving this story, Thank you. And My thanks too, to the other members of team dragon, particularly [info]joanwilder, for all of your support and encouragement along the way.
Disclaimer:The Harry Potter universe belongs to JKR, WB, and probably a few others whose names I don't know, not me. I make no money off this story, it is written for the sole purpose of attempting to entertain a few people.
