Warning: This work is dark. Rape and non-consensual sex are a significant and ongoing aspect of the plot. There are also character deaths, psychological trauma, descriptions of battlefield violence, and references to torture. Reader discretion is advised.

Author’s Note: The characters in this story are not mine: they belong to JK Rowling, whom I happen to not be. The initial inspiration of this plot occurred when watching the first episode of The Handmaid’s Tale. In homage there are elements of it maintained throughout the story. The title High Reeve was drawn from Lady_of_Clunn’s use in her story Uncoffined.

This story diverges from canon following the conclusion of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

Alpha/beta work by jamethiel and pidanka. All remaining errors are my own original work.

DemonHunter: I liked the story line, I feel like the chapters could have been longer. Spaced the entire story out longer. I love the drama between them and the crazy ex. I feel like the story should be in either first person or third person, not in both. I know this is an ebook, but why not make the book long...

Bureche: Lovely story as always.The ending is a bit abrupt and somehow rushed. Otherwise, the story development up until the later chapters was wonderful.Still, a good dose of a cute ever after.

Isa: I like the plot but it has no scary piesces in it
