It's 1979 and Voldemort is rising. On the great stage of the magical world the dancers take their places, adjust their costumes, and let the audience await with hushed breath.
The Deatheaters are becoming more brazen and vicious in their attacks. No one is safe, be they muggle, halfblood, or a Pureblood "traitor". It's only a matter of time before they commit wholesale slaughter in broad daylight.
The Ministry is in chaos as people wonder if their co-workers are passing secrets or attempting to recruit them to either side. Some fear extreme measures will need to be taken to regain control. Others prefer to live in denial.
The Order is fighting hard against two sides, attacking the Deatheaters where possible and defending themselves and their actions from the Ministry. Tensions run high in the group as people start to see betrayal where none is meant, and give trust where none is deserved.
And in between it all people try to live their lives, through fear and death and blood they fall in love, marry, raise their families and hope they'll survive the dark times and live to see the light again.
Let the dark waltz begin...
