Disclaimer: I do not own Harry Potter... blah blah blah
Summary: My take on the 'Potter in Azkaban' theme. Harry and Daphne have spent the last 4 years in Azkaban for a crime they did not commit. Dark! Powerful! & Unforgiving! Harry & Daphne. Graphic violence and even a bit of dark humour. You've been warned.
Cornelius Fudge's voice boomed in the courtroom:
"On behalf of the magical nation and after hearing all the testimonies, I hereby sentence Mr Harry James Potter to lifetime imprisonment in Azkaban Prison for the murder of Miss Luna Lovegood. This verdict is effective immediately."
"On behalf of the magical nation and after hearing all the testimonies, I hereby sentence Miss Daphne Alyssa Greengrass to 20 years imprisonment in Azkaban Prison for aiding and abetting Mr. Harry James Potter in the murder of Miss Luna Lovegood. This verdict is effective immediately."
This was it. The verdict had been passed. Harry Potter and Daphne Greengrass had both been convicted for a crime they did not commit.
The people that Harry believed were closest to him had testified that they had seen Harry murder Luna Lovegood in cold blood with the help of Daphne Greengrass.
Harry's ex-best friends had testified against him. Ronald Weasley and Hermione Granger had both testified that they had seen both Daphne and Harry laughing over the body of Luna Lovegood.
Ginny Weasley had testified that she had seen Harry use the cutting curse on Luna which had led to her death.
Sirius Black, who had been cleared of all charges following Voldemort's appearance in the Department of Mysteries last year, had testified that Harry tended to have mood swings and convulsions. It had taken some time for him to believe it but he couldn't help but acquiesce to the belief of Harry's guilt.
Albus Dumbledore, Harry's supposed mentor had testified about Harry's connection to Voldemort and about how it had led to Harry's moving over to the Dark side. He had further explained Harry's rather rough treatment at the Dursley's which might have pushed him towards evil.
Neville Longbottom and Susan Bones were the only two people who had believed that Harry didn't do it. They had come to visit him in his cell and told him that they would try their best to get him out of there. Their application to attend the trial and testify in favour of Harry had been rejected by the Ministry.
Remus Lupin, his father's other best friend had not testified. However, he did believe Harry to be guilty. His belief was evident by the look of disdain on his face.
Things had gotten worse however as Harry had seen both his and Daphne's wands snapped. He then had to endure his supposed friends burning up all his and Daphne's possessions. Daphne had broken down but Harry hadn't cried. He had a steely glare on his face as he saw his photo album burn, the last memories of his parents evaporating in a puff of smoke.
Ron had taken his Firebolt whereas Ginny had taken the Marauders Map. Apart from that, all that was remaining of his possessions were ashes.
Two people sitting in the back row hadn't been able to keep the smirk of their faces. Their master's plan had worked brilliantly. It was amazing how a couple of stunners and a bit of Polyjuice Potion could help frame someone so easily.
It was Draco Malfoy's idea to frame Daphne Greengrass as well. The bitch had kneed him in the groin when he had tried to have his way with her. The Ice Queen was getting her just reward now. You never messed with a Malfoy, Never.
Severus Snape had initially refused to frame Daphne but then after a lot of persuading from Draco, he had agreed to do so. He couldn't help but agree with Draco now, the sight of the sobbing girl amused him to a great extent.
However, what worried him was the steely look in Potter's eyes. He had never seen that look on the prat's face before. However, he didn't worry too much about it. His Master was going to be very happy with their work...very happy indeed.
After the proceedings in the Courtroom had ended, both Harry and Daphne were escorted by Aurors to Azkaban prison. They were thrown into cells opposite each other, so that both of them could look at the misery that the other one was going through.
The Wizarding World didn't know it yet, but as soon as both Harry and Daphne were thrown into their cells an alliance was formed.
An alliance formed between Daphne Greengrass and Harry Potter. An alliance that would make Voldemort's reign seem like a piece of cake.
