Ginny sighed and slumped back in her seat. “You’re letting him win. He’s winning the breakup!”
“Everything you’re saying is ridiculous! You can’t win a breakup.”
“Obviously you can, and Ron is doing it!”
“You’re being childish. Not everything is about winning and losing.”
Ginny frowned at Hermione’s nonchalance.
Ron and Hermione have recently broken up, and Ginny — concerned for her best friend — has decided that the only thing for Hermione to do now is to date someone new to make Ron jealous. And who better than Hermione’s best friend (and coincidentally Ron’s younger sister) to drive him absolutely mental?

EDIT: 6/9/21 — I've decided to go back through this story and change the formatting around! Not adding anything new or changing anything too much, I just decided to separate the chapters a bit more, make it a bit easier to read. Sorry for those thinking this story has been updated — besides some light style fixes here and there, it's all the same!

9 years after the battle of Hogwarts, the war still rages on and everyone is much changed since their days at Hogwarts.
Hermione is the most lethal soldier in The Order, spending her days on rescue missions to free captured Muggleborn slaves and fight on the front line.
For years, she's been meeting in secret with a spy within Voldemort's ranks to exchange information.
But, when she's captured and made prisoner at Malfoy Manor, of all the dark and evil ways she'd envisioned Malfoy would torture her, she never quite imagined anything this horrific.
I just wanted to make it abundantly clear that I was originally inspired to write this fic after I read the masterpiece that is Manacled, so I would like to thank SenLinYu for her amazing work!
The memory searching aspect of Manacled is what inspired me, and although I have adapted that, (and also made Draco head Death Eater, because... ya know... we all love it when he's Voldemort's right hand man 😅😉), Secrets and Masks will be a very very different fic all together.

You've been a recruit for the Death Eaters for a while now, training under the most terrifying woman in the Wizarding World. But no matter how much time you spend with Bellatrix Lestrange, you doubt you'll ever get used to the emotions you have around her.
Takes place during book seven.
Going back to Hogwarts was supposed to be easy. It was supposed to be simple: in-and-out, grab your NEWTs and go. But it was Hogwarts, and she was Hermione Granger. And nothing ever seems to be easy anymore.
When a placement with the Ministry arises, and Wizarding Britain starts falling deeper into a recession following the war, Hermione tries to do all she can to stay afloat. But things are growing darker, and the Death Eaters might not be as defeated as they seemed. Throw in Draco Malfoy, and a courage that seems to be failing her, and 'staying afloat' is proving more difficult than she first thought.
When one becomes embittered enough towards one side of a war, it often happens that they turn to the other side. When someone's fate has been decided for them, they often become that exactly what is expected of them. Anastasia Potter's role has never been as the hero, and who is she to prove them wrong. While Alex Potter enjoys the luxuries of being Britain's hero, Anastasia gets to be the hidden twin, like Rapunzel up in her tower. One surprise meeting later, and she's gone from dirty little secret to mysterious musical sensation. How will this change her story?
This is the first installment of what will eventually cover the entire original series, though it will be split into multiple works.
