No matter the universe, Molly the Loud remains the same. Sorry not sorry, but I just do not like the loud-mouthed broad.

Stupid man. Yes, it does state that neither of them could live WHILE THE OTHER SURVIVES.

Pretty good story very different also, but it has so many plotholes and so many things you have forgot.
Such a bummer with the ending no way knowing the changes and it's so rushed.
-The potter's don't go out and they have Fidelius Charm on there house, voldy has something of the sorts too.. so there is rift in the plan already they have no know way of knowing where they are!
-What about the trace on there wands there not even 17 yet, also they can't even Apparate.
-Why save dumbles if he dies anyway?
-Why go back in time if the only thing you do is research and don't stop death eater's or change other things, they go to the cave but the soul piece was not there but at grimmauld which you overlook.
-If his parents are alive and others a lot of things change, would h/hr even be in the same hogwarts house, wouldn't done the parents nothing to prevent or stop the danger the kids are in, cause h/hr have not said anything.
There are so many things that don't add upp, voldy couln't known harry was in his mansion fighting.
Harry couldn't have met the weasleys on the train if he wasn't famous, at least not first or otherwise even been friends with them that would be such a small change.
So aggravating that there already friends at 3 years old for fuck sake wouldn't that change his personality too, very much doubt lilly could stand molly. it's not all about the damn weasleys.

The prophecy was being a philosophical with that line "Neither can live while the other survives" meaning that as long as one is alive they can't Live their life to their fullest and get all they want, they can merrily survive and go thru the daily motions. To live your life is to fully embrace it and enjoy it, however to survive is to mearly go on with the daily motions to not be dead. Put simply neither Harry nor Voldermot would get their happy ever after till one of them is dead.

That conversation between Draco and Albus that you took from canon verbatim except for the location is a minefield that..., after all those years I still can't get over it that Rowling gave us that scene.
The first is that Draco took almost a year (and he tried several other plans when he didn't succeed for so long) to get the Death Eaters into Hogwarts. It would've been so easy if he had a brain and weren't almost as inbred as the Gaunts. He could have welcomed his lord and all the minions, Death Eaters, dementors, werewolves, vampires, giants, doesn't matter, all of them, at the gate to the school grounds on September first right before the feast and led them into the Great Hall. They could've massacred the teachers and the guys, taken away the girls to rape them to death later, and the task would've been a success. What would've kept them from doing that? For six books (including events that are referred to but happened years or decades earlier) everyone and everything has access to the school. Death Eaters, dementors, illegal animagi, dark artefacts, dark lords, giants and monsters, lots of them, and quite a few Class XXXXX monsters among them. There are wards, that's canon, because Dumbledore has to deactivate one in the Great Hall for the apparition lessons. But they don't do ANYTHING else obviously.
And then Dumbledore admits that he knows about the other murder attempts. He did exactly NOTHING to prevent them or to help his students out of Draco's shit. That both Ronald and Katie didn't die was not an accomplishment of the ancient goat fucker. It was pure luck. So, he sits in his tower and lets one student murder other students at will, not punishing the Death Eater bitch ever, and what? Did he sit there and chuckle because again a stupid Gryffindor was in the way and almost was murdered by the little shit? He's proven over the years that he doesn't give a shit about the lives of his students, but letting a murdering student run rampant?
And it WAS luck. Draco has no problem with murdering someone. He has PROVEN that beyond doubt. Both the mead and the locket didn't reach Dumbledore but they almost killed someone and it was not because Draco hesitated at the last moment. He had set the attempts in motion and was elsewhere when they triggered but failed. And he's very quick with casting the Killing Curse (AND the Cruciatus. AND he uses the Imperius successfully.) as a reflex. You need to MEAN doing damage to be able to use the Unforgivables. Or must be VERY experienced and comfortable with casting them to be able to not need to concentrate on your hatred.
The question that comes up AGAIN during that scene that an observant reader must ask himself, is:
Is Dumbledore completely senile? Or is he evil? If he doesn't understand what happens around him the first is probable. If he does his intentions can't be good. Or is the redemption of one rich pureblood worth the lives of hundreds of mudbloods, halfblood freaks and blood traitors? It seems like that. I just say: a known child murderer and cannibal, full moon or not, running free IN A SCHOOL because of Draco's actions. Greater Good my arse!

Really, really nice H/Hr relationship.
Loved the wonderful Potter family interactions.
Some plot holes are rather blatant though. What's with Regulus and the locket? How did they never think of protecting the Longbottoms or Lunas mother. The whole potion thing was so forced, why not try bringing a sample home first? The leap of staying passive the potters made after overhearing was quite hard to follow. Then the fidelius, was pettigrew the secret keeper? Were they let in? Why not plan with Lily to make sure harry did actually go back instead of relying on an off chance? Aah.
Very good story though, I recommend a read for the relationship.
PS: Jesus, her fake name! Why keep that, the agent would never see them again.
