I like the idea of holding Dumbledore accountable for his crimes. It would be even better if they also managed to break his reputation and expose him as the Dark Lord he is.
I wonder whether Rowling really believes him to be somewhat good, or whether it is a secret test to teach people to gather the facts and think for themselves instead of believing everything that is presented to them.
Dumbledore is responsible for many problems.
First, we know that he believes wizards should rule the whole world, with the argument that they are more powerful than muggles. By the same reasoning powerful wizards should rule the average wizards, which conveniently means him.
He forced Riddle back every summer into the orphanage, thus contributing to Riddle's hate against the wizarding world.
He made sure that Harry's childhood is similar, maybe worse than Riddle's. I guess that even in Riddle's time an orphanage had regular meals and rooms with some kind of bed and window, not cupboards.
To get Harry to the Dursleys, he had to get rid of Sirius. While it is explained that Sirius couldn't be Harry's guardian because he was in Azkaban, the truth is that when Sirius and Hagrid meet at Godric's Hollow, Hagrid already has Dumbledore's order to bring Harry to the Dursleys. Sirius gives Hagrid his motorbike and then continues to chase Wormtail. So either Dumbledore had already planned that Sirius would chase Wormtail (compulsion charm) or he just took advantage of the situation. In that case, the question is, what else had he planned to get rid of Sirius. Maybe Sirius was "lucky" that he just went to Azkaban instead of having some fatal "accident".
Harry is then sent back every year, even after the death of Cedric and Sirius, and even his friends are ordered not to contact him, until Dumbledore comes to his "rescue".
Harry receives not training (Riddle's home life doesn't count). It is clear that he is not expected to survive. In fact his while childhood is a big gamble. Beat him so much (physical, mental, emotional) that he either gets an angry young man and becomes the next Dark Lord, or make him so submissive that he willingly walks to his death. Also remember that Dumbledore says at the beginning of book 1 that he wouldn't remove the scar (Horcrux) even if he could.
Harry's life is not Dumbledore's only crime.
He has many positions and more informal influence. Instead of sending Sirius to Azkaban and let most of the others walk free, he should have tried his best to make sure that everybody get a fair trial and the guilty don't claim the Imperius defense.
Allowing incompetent teachers is a problem for society. Whatever Snape may be, he is not a teacher. Potions are required for at least Aurors, Healers and Potion Masters. With Snape in Potions students who would consider these careers would either miss the required grades or choose something else to avoid Snape's lessons.
Dumbledore risks the entire school in book 6 for his experiment whether Draco would kill him or not. How many more people died under his command for similar experiments.
His withholding information to Harry in book 7 leads to the death of many people and only a sequence of extreme luck leads to Voldemort's defeat, which by the way isn't by Harry's hand.
That Harry would name a child Albus Severus is one of the worst parts of the epilogue (even worse than poor Hermione with Ron). It shows that Harry has still not recovered from his brainwashing.

Excellent don't quite cover it, but is close. It's hard for me to
believe that a mother would write a story condoning child abuse but JKR did and made billions.

All fan fiction is completely alternate by its very nature. Canon exists to provide a launching pad and you made great use of it.

Very good! Different and a little creepy but I completely agree. Great job!

you know, this is a good start to a full on story, actually its the perfect start to a full on story. but thats all I see, a start, not a one shot, there is WAY too much that can be explained in further chapters and too many loose ends too tie up for this to be a one-shot

So the child or ward in question was Luna Lovegood? That's good to know. Great story!
| Mionefan chapter 1 . 5/18/2015
Well, I figured it was Luna, and yes, it is totally AU but in a good way.
| Anime Princess chapter 1 . 12/12/2014
I like this version!

Quite interesting! I'm glad Dumbledore isn't going to get away with obliviating everyone. I often wonder how many teachers and school authorities he must have Obliviated between Harry's Kindergarten anf fifth grade years (American system). As a retired teacher, I can say with confidence that Harry's poor physical condition - apparent malnutrition, bruises, poor eyesight and broken glasses - and his excessively baggy clothing would have brought him to the attention of teachers, the school nurse, the principal, etc., on more than one occasion and probably each year.
Petunia would have had to provide proof of immunizations or reasons for their not having been given, both of which would have been verified by a doctor who gave Harry a physical exam. Surely his condition would have been noticed and recorded. The lack of such information suggests that Obliviation must have been used on more than one occasion. Perhaps that's why Lockhart wasn't a problem for Dumbledore, as he himself was another Obliviation King.

im just trying to pick if the stones are a reference to ANYTHING... but i doubt it, and quite the AU really, very far back, but quite posible too, it could all fit too well, with the lovegoods having such a peculiar family setting and luna been so quircky yet sane and smart somehow, and she been such a supporter of his father printed conspiracy theories, likely a inherited thing from her mother that, at his fathers ears, could sound to much like futher support from the mother from beyond, keeping the father at the helm of the quibbler... this is, somehow, an incredible posible "butterfly effect", like just "lets go shopping tomorrow better"
