Playing with Fire


The Dark Lord reigns victorious. Hermione Granger is the sole survivor of The Order and is taken captive, serving as means to an unknown end in Voldemort's master plan. Branded like cattle and isolated from anyone she's ever loved, Hermione feels utterly hopeless. If Harry Potter can't defeat Lord Voldemort, who can? ~ This work contains mature themes and content for 18+ ~ I do not own any characters in this story - all credit goes to J.K. Rowling

Hi! I just wanted to preface this with a few things:

This is a SLOW BURN so please be patient. I promise things pick up and get a little {spicy} but this is a storyline with smut so I couldn’t just jump straight into things.

Most of the chapters are relatively short in my opinion, but there are obviously a lot of them. I’m not a fan of dragging chapters out super long for no reason but some are definitely longer than others depending on what’s happening that chapter.

There are no warnings throughout the story, but this is written for 18+ so if you are not 18+ well, you’ve been warned. I don’t think there is anything in the story that would be considered triggering for the most part, but just know this is a relatively dark AU where Voldemort won. Things aren’t going to be all rainbows and sunshine.

Again, I’m not putting trigger warnings but if mature content and themes bother you - manipulation, sexual scenes, descriptive violence, etc. - don’t read it!

I’d love to hear your thoughts so comment throughout if you want to :) I also put one (and sometimes multiple) songs that fit the vibe of that chapter if you’re interested in listening to them. I even made a Spotify playlist with all the songs in order here:

This is an ongoing story but I usually post at least one chapter a day. I’m not certain how long it will be yet but I have everything mapped out so don’t worry - I won’t leave you hanging!

Without further ado, I hope you love the story!
