Story Notes:
Disclaimer: I don’t own Harry Potter & Co. They belong to J.K. Rowling sans whatever other companies help commercialize it.

Author Note: When I started writing this story, book five was not yet out, so this entirely based on the first four books.

After much thinking, I have decided to include details from the fifth book, how much will depend on how the plot is working. But so far, in what I have already plotted in my notebooks, there will be more than I originally thought. It’s really working great, even though this will definitely remain an AU.

I don’t think the idea for this one is original, but I hope I can make it interesting and give it some twists (I have a few ideas there). I’ve read so many fics that I hope I’m not using someone’s ideas but if I am I apologize.

I don’t have a beta reader for this one yet, I really would like someone to help with the cannon and the grammar, so if you’re interested please e-mail me at animealam@fanfiction.net

Constructive criticism is always welcomed and if you find any errors please point them out, I’ll do my best to correct them. It also really helps me improve my written English. Thank you and hope you like this story.

Warnings:

THIS IS AN AU STORY (AU=Alternate Universe), even though I try to follow the original novels as close as I can.

Not a native English speaker writing.

Characters might be Out Of Character (OOC)

There might be spoilers for all four books.

I want to thank Phoenix Angel for editing this chapter and everyone that reviewed. I don’t usually answer reviews in my chapters, but I probably might start with the habit in later chapters.

Disclaimer: I don’t own Harry Potter & Co. They belong to J.K. Rowling sans whatever other companies help commercialize it.

This chapter is not beta‘ed’ yet as I wanted to get it out as soon as possible since I took so long in writing it.

4. Chapter 03 by animealam [Reviews - 2] starstarstarstar (3890 words) Printer

Disclaimer: I don’t own Harry Potter & Co. They belong to J.K. Rowling sans whatever other companies help commercialize it.

Author Note: Thanks to my beta Phoenix Angel, for checking the chapters. When I asked her she told me she found both Severus and Petunia OOC, I actually did too, but was not sure. I did some corrections, and hope they are more in character.

Still, you will find that Petunia is WAY to OOC, but that was on purpose. I've always thought she was quite bad, and would do just about anything to show Harry the differences between being her son and being her 'unwanted' nephew. So I'll be portraying her as quite abusive, and a bit more disgusted by wizards. Based on the supposition that her sister was greatly favored by her parents because of her magical abilities.

Author Note: 

I took too long getting this chapter out, so I have yet to have it beta'ed'.

7. Chapter 06 by animealam [Reviews - 1] (8051 words) Printer

Disclaimer: I don’t own Harry Potter & Co. They belong to J.K. Rowling sans whatever other companies help commercialize it.

Author Note: When I started writing this story, book five was not yet out.

For those who disliked (or liked) toad-woman Umbridge, she will be making an appearance in later chapters. I had planned on creating a character that would have a similar role anyway, so why not use the one that J.K. Rowling had already created? And I barely have to change a few things of what I had already plotted.

In this chapter some things will be explained, so it’s not one filled with a lot of action. This is to keep building a background and also explain things that will be happening in later chapters.

This chapter is not beta‘ed’, although I did as much proof-reading as I could some errors might have slipped past either MSWord’s grammar/spell checker or myself.

8. Chapter 07 by animealam [Reviews - 1] (7217 words) Printer

Disclaimer: I don’t own Harry Potter & Co. They belong to J.K. Rowling sans whatever other companies help commercialize it.

Author Note: I have not betaed this chapter, and I’m looking for a new beta if there is anyone interested please e-mail me at the account in my profile.

Well here is the next chapter. I hope you like it.

9. Chapter 08 by animealam [Reviews - 25] starstarstarstarhalf-star (7993 words) Printer

Disclaimer: I don’t own Harry Potter & Co. They belong to J.K. Rowling sans whatever other companies help commercialize it.

Author Note: Well finally it’s here. Chapter eight, I hope you like it.

To some Severus might sound slightly OOC, but my beta Aphy and I believe there is enough explanation to his behaviour in this and the other chapters to justify the changes.

I can’t promise I’ll update this soon, but I’m working on the next chapter for all the stories I have pending. So will try to get something up soon.

I’d like to thank Aphy for betaing this chapter. The explanations were great :)
