Raised and shaped by Pure-blood knowledge and tradition, Harry will have a far different impact than the ignorant and abused child Dumbledore had expected to be delivered to him on September first.

Art by Tiffany



Thanks so much to my beta NCP for listening to my constant and repeated ‘what-if’s and second guessing.  And a major thank you to my artist, Tiffany who created four great pieces of art in a short period of time.  They look great and are a fantastic part of this project.  I am so glad I was able to work with these two great ladies!

Cast Pictures


I have been writing fanfic since I was twelve and despite my love of the source material I have found plenty over the years to twist to my own purposes so this theme is going to be a blast. I love turning things on their head and looking at canon from a completely different direction and making it totally different without changing the core.


  1. Oh, I adore this concept….

  2. LOL!! I read your summary and almost hurt myself laughing. Dumbles won’t know what hit him. What a wonderful change to canon and I’m looking forward to seeing how it goes. ::giggle::

  3. The pictures you chose are perfect. Little Harry, Neville and Draco were adorable. I’m so looking forward to this story.

  4. Your casting of the Malfoys has replaced my head canon
