Frank Longbottom slowly opened the door. The stench struck him with force. A young uniformed Ministry man behind him winced. 'Mr Slymme?' No answer. They exchanged looks. 'Ready?' he whispered. Alastor nodded. 'Lumos!' The blue light flashed over dark stains, coils of soft tissue, limbs, reflected upon sightless eyes. 'Christ.' The uniform bent over, retching. Moody patted him gently on the back. 'School's out, son.'

Welcome to hp_crime. We are a community devoted to the creation and propagation of HP-related crime fics. Detective stories, Death Eater plots, mysteries, and wicked criminal offenses are all encouraged here. If you are an author, please share your darkest, most devious page-turning plots with us. If you're a reader...well, climb into bed, turn down the lights, and pray that you remembered to lock the door.
- We don't insist on ratings, but you are free to use them. All stories are permitted (readers, be warned). - All fics should be LJ-cut. - Chapters should be posted separately, and only one a day please. - Thou shalt not kill...oh, did you know that one?
