Patrolling the streets of Hogsmeade one snowy day Ron encounters an unexpected duo and returns to the common room late in the evening with a changed personality. Harry thinks it’s just the effects of the ever nearing Quidditch match but is it so?
Unknown to the trio, a master planner has hatched a sinister plot that is far more dangerous than it actually seems. Will Harry, Ron and Hermione figure it out before it’s too late?
Story Notes: The AU warning has been given because Dumbledore is not dead and Snape is still at school. The events that took place on the Astronomy Tower at the end of book 6 have been altered. The modified version will be subsequently revealed in the upcoming chapters. But the rest of the events of book 6 are totally relevant to my story. Also, Draco Malfoy has not returned to complete his seventh year at school.
