Story Notes:

In this story Harry blows up Aunt Marge at the very beginning the summer.  In this story Dumbledore is good. He’s not manipulative or evil, or even barmy despite what Harry may believe. Dumbledore believes he’s doing what’s in Harry’s best interests. Whether he is, or isn’t, is up to the reader.


Snape appears in this story at first to be a great character assassin and cast doubt on Harry’s ability to make sound decisions.  As the story progresses however, Severus finds himself doubting his own decision making ability regarding the Boy-Who-Lived. He isn’t in the story much in the first five chapters, but appears more and more as the story progresses and begins to play a major role in the second half.  This is a Harry centric story because of Harry’s predicament and he spends a lot of time on his own without adults, so please be patient for encounters and interactions with our favorite Potions Master.

Here's an image of how the alley's are in the story now. I had to make this for myself to visualize things so I could know how to describe them. Dark blue buildings are buildings Harry owns. Light blue grayish buildings are ones he doesn't own. Green indicates the Muggle businesses and buildings along the Muggle roads.

I wanted to pause for a moment and thank KatebHarlow for letting me kick ideas around with her a few weeks ago.

Also note, new chapters will be coming daily all week!
