Author's note: Do not worry people, I am still continuing my "read the books" series. I just had this idea passing through my head so much that I couldn't properly write them.
I will try to update both stories regularly, but the "read" series will take priority for now.
This series has been influenced somewhat by Luna the Moonmonster's story, "Amulet of Time". They're actually a pretty good read.
-year long between timelines.
-exact moment time jumps (though it is different)
-before fifth year
-And, the characters are going to write books about their experiences, but they will be diaries as well as write education books.
DISCLAIMER: I DO NOT OWN HARRY POTTER. NOR WILL I MAKE MONEY OFF THIS! GOT IT? GOOD! THIS GOES FOR ALL CHAPTERS!
It was a bright and sunny day in London; the kind of day that just causes you to want to go outside and play. Indeed there were children everywhere, on the sidewalks, in the streets and in the parks. It was great, it was perfect, and it was completely missed by the inhabitants of Number 12 Grimmlaud Place.
The residents of Number 12 Grimmlaud Place were instead stuck inside the dreary home of a mad old witch, as some would call her. Though the witch was dead, she still haunted them with her old portrait. Anyone in the house would tell you that it screams when there's too much noise; although anyone outside would surely not believe it. The place was dirty, smelly and full of evil. The kind of place no decent human being would ever be. And, that's why the purest and most devotees of the light stayed there.
Confused? Well, it just so happens that this is the old home of the escaped convict Mass Murderer Sirius Black, and he decided to make use of the home he ran away from. If for no other reason than to laugh in the face of that evil old witch he called "mother". Now Mass Murderer Sirius Black was an unusual man; for one, he's actually innocent and for two he, just like all of the other inhabitants guests, is a wizard.
But, Sirius Black isn't the main character here. No, that title goes to his Godson, Harry James Potter, the Boy-Who-Lived, the son of James and Lily Potter, and he has just arrived with his guard the night before. Now why would a fifteen year old boy need a guard you ask? It's because he's made an enemy from a snake that was formerly a man. This snake had the name of Tom Marvalo Riddle from his poor dead mother, but he didn't like that. No, he didn't like that all. After all, Tom was extraordinary! He was great! He was above everyone! Tom was a much too plain name for a boy of his caliber, so he created a new name for himself. A name that only his most devoted servants would know, Lord Voldemort, but he couldn't stop there, no he had to make sure everyone else knew his name. He started to do things, things no decent witch, wizard or living creature would ever do. He did such horrible things that anyone who heard of him would only call him "You-Know-Who" or "He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named". He was horrible. He was evil. He was invincible. That is until he met a baby Harry Potter. A baby that somehow destroyed him for thirteen years, ending eleven years terror; but, Lord Voldemort has returned and he wants revenge.
Harry lived with his magic fearing Aunt Petunia and Uncle Vernon, and their great bullying of a son Dudley Dursley. For ten miserable years he lived with them, in a cupboard under the stairs, ignorant of magic and the fame he gained the night his parents died. But, when he was eleven he received a letter, a letter he could not read until a giant, actually half-giant, named Rubeus Hagrid gave it to him. A letter that told him he had been accepted into the magical school known as Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. There, at this Hogwarts, Harry had learned about magic and made friends with a gangly red head boy named Ronald Bilius Weasley and a bushy brown haired bossy genius of a girl named Hermione Jean Granger.
But, school was not fun all fun and Quidditch, the flying equivalent of football for witches and wizards, no Harry has nearly been murdered each and every year. His first year, not only did he face a twelve foot mountain troll, but a giant three headed man-eating dog, a strangling plant, a giant killer wizard's chess set, a logic riddle that involved poisons and fire, and facing a man that was possessed by Lord Voldemort. His second year had him face a twenty foot snake, called a Basilisk, that could kill just by looking in its eyes. His third year involved him nearly having his soul sucked out by foul creatures called Dementors. And, just this last year, his fourth year had him face a dragon, saving his friends from drowning and going through a maze that was loaded with nothing but thefoulest creatures in a wizard's mad idea for a fun competition. A competition he was forced into by a man trying to kill him. For at the end of the maze was a trophy. A trophy that meant fame, fortune and glory; all of the goals Harry already had from that fateful Halloween all of those years ago. But, the trophy was a trap, it was a teleporter called a portkey. A portkey that took him to a graveyard, a portkey that took his fellow student, Cedric Diggory, to his death, a portkey that gave Lord Voldemort a chance to come back to life and a portkey that ironically saved Harry's life.
Now it was summer, but Harry's always hated summers. And, you would too if you lived with the Dursleys. But, this year was worse because someone had sent Dementors after him, he may be expelled from Hogwarts, he has to face a trial and the Minister of Magic, Cornelius Fudge, does not like him anymore.
After the attack it was decided to move Harry to headquarters, Number 12 Grimmlaud Place, and this where he is, cleaning with Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley and Ron's little sister, Ginny Weasley.
He was cleaning because he wasn't allowed to join or be part of meetings for a group called The Order of the Phoenix. The Order was the main anti-Voldemort group. In fact it was the only anti-Voldemort group. Sadly, Minister Fudge does not believe Harry about Voldemort returning, and instead is using his influence to make him out to be a liar and an attention seeking prat.
So, here he was cleaning to pass the time before his trial and hopeful return to Hogwarts. He can't ever remember feeling so frustrated in his life.
"Cheer up mate, it's not that ba-" Ron started to tell him until Ginevra "Ginny" Weasley elbowed him in the ribs. Hard. After all, anyone with even a half of a brain knows that what Ron was going to say would be the wrong thing to say.
And, indeed it was because Harry was now giving Ron a glare that would kill a Basilisk on sight. Harry knew he was being a bit unfair but they did keep him in the dark for the first half of the summer. Hermione bit her lip; she had never been on eggshells like this around Harry before. It doesn't happen often, but she just didn't have the answer to this problem. So, the four just cleaned in silence, hoping something would happen, but also hoping nothing would.
That's when Harry found it. It was a black stone a stone that had "Destiny", "Fate" and "Time" written on the visible part. A stone so unusually heavy that he needed help lifting it out of the way. A stone that Harry, Ron, Hermione and Ginny felt like their magic was being drained away when lifting it up. It was a stone that caused a golden aura to glow around their bodies. It was a stone that caused them to disappear. It was a stone that made such a loud noise that the portrait of the mean old witch to wake up. It was a stone that caused the Order run upstairs in fear of attack and their children's safety. It was a stone that caused Sirius Black to groan and smile at the same time. It was a stone that caused Harry James Potter, Ronald Bilius Weasley, Hermione Jean Granger and Ginevra Molly Weasley to look at the people in front of them in shock and disbelief. And, it was a stone that will change everything.
