For Percy it was an unbreakable rule, for Fred and George it was a joke and for Ron it was an opportunity to be someone. Someday someone had to come to end it. Harry did.
Dark Harry; H/G; Story based on the fan fiction "The Darkness Within", by Kurinoone.
Nothing is mine. Harry Potter (the Weasley family and so on) belongs to JKR and those who publish her books. Damien is Kurinoone's (an absolutely wonderful fan fiction author) and Harry's background is kind of hers, too. I am doing this for fun (and to sleep peacefully) and I earn no money for this story. There are parts of this story that have been written by JKR and parts that have been written by Kurinoone. I haven't marked them, but if you want them to be marked, I'll do that.
Okay... this is kind of weird, seeing this is an AU to an AU story. But let me explain. Kurinoone has written these absolutely fantastic stories: "The Darkness Within", "A Part of Me" and "Deepest Reflections". I love them. (If you haven't read them, do it. It's worth every minute.) And now I have this idea and I thought about a million ways to write this without Kurinoone's universe but I just couldn't find one. So... here I am, telling you that maybe you won't understand everything if you haven't read the named fanfictions.
When Ginny left for Hogwarts for the first time, she had thought she would sit with one of her brothers. Her first choice had been Ron as he was the one closest to her age. She had been wrong. Instead of welcoming her, he had told her some nasty things about how older brothers didn't like to be seen with their little sisters.
She had found an empty compartment, because she was too afraid to search for her other brothers. Not long after that, a girl called Luna Lovegood sat down next to her. Ginny had thought she was a bit weird seeing as the girl talked about creatures Ginny had never even heard of before. Of course she hadn't known Luna would become one of her only friends.
Whenever Ginny had imagined Hogwarts she had seen herself with good marks, much fun and many friends. The last aspect hadn't come. With a house full of boys as only company she hadn't quite known how to treat girls. After only one night together in a room she had said a few things the other girls couldn't understand and so they avoided her. In the following time Ginny forgot those things. At first it wasn't that bad. She just began hanging out with the boys in her year. Naturally she hadn't expected the way her brothers reacted. She hadn't understood what it was all about either. And in the next years it was just so normal that she didn't ask herself again.
So she spent all possible classes with Luna and after a while she found another friend in Hermione Granger, even if she was a year above her. It was Hermione that convinced Ron of spending time with her. Later on Damien Potter became a part of their group as well.
Ironically it was because of their time together that Ron noticed the way other boys started to look at his little sister. Over the years she had grown up and Ron knew exactly what boys thought. He went to Fred and George and they agreed to keep the boys away. Ginny had to be protected after all and Ron was really serious about that, even if he sometimes suspected Fred and George didn't see it nearly as important as he did. But they handled their task. It didn't take too long to make the other boys see reason. It was only difficult if Ginny was the one interested in them.
But until the fateful day in Hogsmeade, the twins' pranks kept everyone in their places. It was that day that changed Ginny and that changed her interests in boys as well. She was only interested in finding her mysterious saviour as they all learned. Ron, Fred and George had never seen a boy that would fit her description so it didn't matter to them and even if she did find him, they would take actions, drastic actions.
The summer holiday came, Fred and George left school and the task of keeping poor, innocent Ginny protected was now only Ron's. He liked the feeling of having a responsibility for something so important. It was him that would be praised by his parents and older brothers. For a moment he had hesitated at the thought of managing the boys alone, but now he was a sixth year and the others knew about the rules and would keep away. Or so he thought. But really, he had never heard the name Harry James Potter before. How could he have known what would come?
