I probably won't ever update this. If you like the story though, feel free to finish it/expand upon it/borrow its ideas.

DISCLAIMER: I do not own Harry Potter… yada yada yada… if this disclaimer isn't good enough, tell me and I'll embellish it with some witty humor.

Kateydidnt has also notified me about adopting this story. If she does, link will be added here.

A few people have expressed interest in adopting this story. Because there are so many Azkaban stories out there already (although I don't really consider this very... Azkaban-y), I feel I have no right limiting who can or cannot adopt this story.

There will probably be more than one version out there, for which I will apologize for not making exclusive rights, but at the very least, I would highly appreciate any potential adopters notifying me first so that I may link to the stories here.

Also, from this point forward really, if you're going to adopt it, I'd greatly appreciate it if you could continue the story without my... very mangled... and very limited... storyline notes. This way, if there is more than one version, they'll at least be different where it matters. Thanks!

The Ashes of Hope By Laer … who has an Ear

Harry Potter was wrongly condemned to Azkaban, and a year later the 17-yr-old is Kissed and cremated. Only later does the Order discover his innocence, mere minutes too late. Is the light's only hope now a pile of ashes or is it simply hidden?
