Summary: "Sometimes," said Dumbledore, "we sort too soon."
Originally writtten for TTB's ReSorting Challenge. Many, many thanks to Riham (padfoot_returns) for her wonderful work on this story. :D
This story won a 2011 QSQ for Best Alternate Universe in the one-shot category.
DISCLAIMER: I am not J.K.Rowling, though everything you recognise belongs to her. AU because Dumbledore was a Gryffindor. ;)
Summary: Now, I knew better. Dead things should stay dead. I dealt with the devil, and we were both going to burn for it.
For Cedric Diggory, death was only the beginning. A deal is struck, a chance for justice, and a second life . . . but is resurrection a miracle or a curse?
After all, Death is the next great adventure . . .
Summary: It's been twelve years since the Wizarding world saw Harry Potter after he mysteriously disappeared into the Forbidden Forest during the Final Battle in 1998. Now Lord Voldemort has conquered, extending his reach not just over Britain, but France, Germany, and Spain as well.
Meanwhile, hidden deep within the Canadian Rocky Mountains in British Columbia, a terrifying secret is brewing at the magic school that McGonagall herself founded just after the second battle for Hogwarts. It is at this school where Muggle-born Leah Andrews and her best friends, Gwen and Cory, will find themselves thrown into the search for the truth: What is a dead snake doing hung from a tree like a sacrificial lamb? Who really is the new DADA professor with the strange colour-changing eyes and bad mood swings? And just what does a gentle half-giant gamekeeper have to do with any of this?
One thing is for certain - all is definitely not well.
This is the sequel to Alternate Ending. I strongly recommend you read that one first, although I don't think it's necessary.
Excerpt from the Epilogue:
As he sidestepped them, he glanced down again at the wrinkled slip of parchment Charlie had handed him two days earlier with nothing more than a quiet word that there may still be one last loose end to tie.
Summary: In the forest clearing, Harry Potter really does die. When he arrives at Death's door, Sirius comes out to greet him. He is given three options, to return to life and continue to fight Voldemort, to relive life with the prophecy on Neville, or to die and take Voldemort with him. Harry being the heroic and selfless person he is chooses death. But death turns out to be something quite different than he expected.
Summary: AU. There was more than one baby left on a doorstep that night. One ripple in the pond, one flap of a butterfly’s wings will alter the course of history and the Second War. Identity, politics, love, loss, and sarcasm. OC-centric. Pairings TBA. 1st in the Blackbird Suite.
“…he fell through the ancient doorway and disappeared behind the veil, which fluttered for a moment as though in a high wind and then fell back into place… Sirius must be just behind the curtain…”
Sirius Black didn’t die when he fell through the veil in the Department of Mysteries. He was transported to another world: our world, where Hogwarts doesn’t exist and magic lives only in the fantasy books. As Sirius tries to understand this strange new world and find his way home, he runs into some unlikely old friends. Nothing is the same behind the curtain.
Summary: It's the sixth year for Harry Potter and his mates, and there are two new people to contend with.
Summary: How would you feel if the only person who ever understood you disappeared from the earth forever? How would you feel if your unborn child would never know its father? It felt like someone had killed me rather than him, for if he was dead then so was I because how could I live or even smile without him?
This was how Lucy Black felt about the death of her beloved Sirius. When you grieve you become closer to those experiencing the same feelings as you. This story calls in the question: Can you ever be happy once the one you loved has died? And What if Sirius didn't actually die? How would you feel if the one you thought had died found you in the arms of his best friend?
Summary: Professor Dumbledore is presented with an intriguing mystery when a very unexpected guest pops up to his office for tea. But little does he guess the effect this seemingly innocent encounter will have on Hogwarts and the Wizarding World at large ... AU.
"It feels as if the whole world is falling apart," said Neville, "and I'm falling right along with it."
In the fifth instalment of the Neville Longbottom saga, Voldemort is back, but nobody wants to know. Facing pressure from all sides, and feeling alone and abandoned, the Boy-Who-Lived confronts the depths of despair and the darkest corners of his soul.
With a direct link to evil plaguing his mind and the cruel Dolores Umbridge determined to break him, can Neville find the hope and strength to carry on? And will he be prepared to embrace his destiny? The darkness falls in Year Five...
A note on the warnings: there's nothing there you won't find in the canon novel.
Summary: If a rose is called by any other name, does it smell as sweet? To Scarlet never realized how much fear a name could provoke. Throughout her life, the name Tonks had become as familiar as her right arm. She is estatic when she receives her letter inviting her to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Despite her happiness, she is confused at the name on the letter. How could one name transform friends into enemies? Who is Scarlet Black? But more importantly, who is she?
This is what she wants to know.
Summary: Weeks after his sixth year at Hogwarts has ended, Draco is forced to live with witches and wizards he was once taught to despise. Everyone must accept him, however, under the order of Dumbledore who has so generously welcomed him to the good side. As relationships are questioned, everything Draco once upheld is changed, beginning with the Mudblood whose first name he never cared to pronounce before.
Summary: We all know the real of what happened to our poor friend Harry Potter- The evil Lord Voldemort killed his young parents and forced him to spend several miserable years with his Muggle family, the Dursleys. But what if Lord Voldemort had never exsisted? What if Lily and James hadn't perished, but lived to see their only son grow up to be the man he is today? Whould Harry still be friends with Ron and Hermione? Whould Draco Malfoy still be an annoying Slytherin git?... Don't answer that. This, my friends, is the story of what should have, could have, and would have happened to the messy-haired hero we've all come to love- Harry Potter.
Summary: Living in a Voldemort run, utopia world, Lily Nightingale has always been a good citizen. But in her fifth-year at Hogwarts, things begin to spiral out of control.
Summary: Lydia Snape embarks upon a journey to put the past right in order to have a better future.
Summary: If Snape hadn't transferred his grudges onto a student, and Harry hadn't hated his professor as a result, they wouldn't have been friends or allies, but perhaps there would have been a grudging respect between them.
Summary: People often become who others expect them to be. When Harry was sorted into Slytherin, he realized he was alone, friendless, and apparently meant to be evil.
Summary: Eia Hunt is just a Muggle with no business in the Wizarding World. Or so she thought. On one unforgettable night she finds herself facing a werewolf, and ends up an outcast of both worlds with no place to go. So she asks a favour of her creator, a sixteen year old boy named Remus Lupin, who willingly agrees. AU.
Summary: He knows he shouldn't say it, but there's still a part of him that remembers being fifteen, that remembers thinking it impossible to get Lily Evans to give him a chance, and it's never really been put to rest. "Don't stop loving me," he whispers. "Please, Lily. Don't ever."
He thought the war couldn't become any more unbearable. But, somehow, it does. It probably has something to do with his wife driving off in the middle of the night. (Companion to "You Told Me Once, Dear.")
Summary: Well, basically in the first and second chapter it is describing what happened in Voldemort’s downfall.. but obviously in a different version as Harry Potters parents live.. and that is another thing I need to explain, Harry Potter is not the chosen one in my story, Neville Longbottom is..
The title explains it all for Harry and I am sure as you carry on reading it will explain everything and I am sure you will understand it!
So.. ENJOY =D
