A/N: This is my first attempt at a Azkaban!Harry story, so please bear with me. This was not beta'd, so please excuse any mistakes on my part. This is more of a prologue, just so you can get used to my writing style. Constructive criticism is appreciated, flamers are not, but I can accept them if – and only if – you have a legitimate reason to flame. If you don't like a part, or it doesn't make sense, please (PLEASE) tell me. Also, I'm writing this as the inspiration strikes me, so if you have any ideas, please contact me with them~

My apologies for how short this is!

Warning: mentions of rape (possibly the act); Manipulative!Corrupt!Dumbledore, Bad!Weasleys (except the twins, Bill, and Charlie), Obsessive!Deranged!Ginny, Good!Malfoys/Slytherins, Betraying!Gryffindors

Note: Simply because this story may (or may not) have mentions of rape does not mean I approve of it, AT ALL. Rape is a horrible act, and destroys lives.


When Remus Lupin, also known as Moony, arrived at Number 12, Grimmauld Place, the Headquarters of the Order of the Phoenix, he knew something big, something important had happened. Owls constantly flew in and out of the windows, and wizards – as well as witches – were continuously apparating and disapparating on the doorstep with loud pops that rippled through the air that was already heady with the hum of magic.

The werewolf cautiously opened the heavy oak door, narrowly avoiding Nymphadora Tonks, auror, as she rushed past. She turned on her heel once she reached the front step and vanished with a loud crack. Lupin made his way down the startlingly clean hallway, looking at the freshly painted walls with interest. Even though Lupin hated this house, he couldn't help but admire the tasteful décor.

Lupin dodged two more members he didn't know – they had joined during the two year gap after Harry Potter defeated Voldemort. Harry Potter, the Boy-Who-Lived, the Champion of the Light, the Chosen One. Lupin's heart clenched at the thought of the Savior of the Wizarding World. The Ministry of Magic – here Lupin snarled, terrifying the two young Order members – along with Albus Dumbledore (THE Albus Dumbledore, the Leader of the Light, Headmaster of Hogwarts, Founder of the Order of the Phoenix, the man who believed in 'the Greater Good', convinced Minister Kingsley Shacklebot (how convenient it must have been to have one of his more useful pawns in a position of power) that Harry Potter – his cub, what remained of his pack! – was set to become the next Dark Lord.

The two conspired and had Harry arrested mere hours after his victory, telling the public that Neville Longbottom had been the true child of prophecy, and he had defeated Voldemort. Lupin sneered as he arrived outside the door to the kitchen after sneaking by the picture of Sirius' mother, Walburga Black. The werewolf felt no need to hear the scathing insults she screamed from her portrait. Taking a quick breath to smooth his expression, Remus Lupin slowly pushed open the door and strode inside to be met by the grim and dark faces of all the members of the Order of the Phoenix who had fought against Voldemort.
