Harley Potter And The Sorcerers Stone
A Harry Potter Story
The Girl Who Lived
Author Note/Disclaimer: I do not own the Harry Potter universe. The only thing I own is some of the storyline. I also own any original characters that you may see. Everything else is owned by famous people that actually have money. Pairings will not occur until third year, though second year will have boys flirting with Harley and what not, but nothing will happen.
Updated 08/08/13- I've decided to go through my Harley Potter stories once again and edit some of them. It's been awhile since I've actually written anything for this story series, and so I need to re-read some of it and change some things. I'll be doing that for this story, going through each chapter and editing it so the new ideas I have come up for this series will work. Harley and many other characters may end up in different houses and there will be many, many OC's of all ages in this story. Many will be related to canon characters and others original but know other canon characters.
Summary: This is a new year for Harley Potter. Another adventure is in the rise. What will happen? What new and interesting mysterious will arise, and what old ones will be solved? Is Harley ready to handle these new truths or will it be too much for her to handle?
Pairings: James Potter/Lily Potter

The Potter's Residence
October 31st 1981
The night sky glimmered with millions of sparkling stars. High up in the sky the moon remained hidden as dark thunderclouds rolled in. The storm clouds thundered and flashed white from within as thunder shook the earth. Lightening struck and the wind hollowed. Trees swayed and danced along with the fierce weather. In a small cottage at the end of the street, hidden by Fidelius Charm, was a small cottage filled with light and warmth. Shadows danced across the ground outside as the light from inside escaped through the front window. Figures moved amongst the rooms inside as loud voices spoke joyously and happily amongst one another, enjoying each others company. A loud bell like laugh echoed in the warm room, filled with a roaring fire and close friends.
"Sirius Black! Look at this mess! Look at what you did to my poor kitchen and daughter!" The soft voice of Lily Potter laughed with a roll of her bright green eyes. She was a beautiful woman with thick, dark red hair that fell to her shoulders and bright almond-shaped green eyes. Her green eyes were extremely distinctive, every person who knows Lily always sees them in her young daughter Harley.
Sirius Black was a tall, well-built, darkly handsome man with fair skin, long, lustrous black hair, striking grey eyes, and an air of "casual elegance". He looked to the hot tempered red head innocently. A meek look graced his features.
"I did no such think. It's prongslet that started it!" Sirius denied. His voice was playful and happy as he pointed to the fifteen month old toddler. Harley sat in her highchair, happily slamming her hands against the mush of carrots, causing it to splatter even more amongst the room's wall and flooring. It also seemed to splatter more on Harley and his godfather who stood near the young child.
The twenty-one-year-old mother raised an eyebrow, shaking her head in amusement. Her comfortable black pants were form fitting, much like her emerald green top. "Right. So you had no part in causing this small food war? Causing this disaster?" Emerald green eyes sparkled with laughter. "Which I should remind you, you were feeding him." Lily accused as she pointed a pale slim pointer finger at Sirius.
Sirius shook his head with a look of playful shock. "Why, I'm hurt Lilyflower. Why would I want to cause a food war with my goddaughter?" He paused for a second. "With a fifteen-month-old at the least?" He demanded, crossing his arms over his silk shirt that was covered in mashed up carrots.
"Oh...I don't know Sirius. Really, maybe it's because you're a child at heart?" Lily rhetorically replied with heavy sarcasm.
Sirius gasped and placed a hand where his heart is and spoke in a high-pitched voice. "Why Lily that has got to be the sweetest thing you've ever said to me." Lily laughed at his acting and shook her head. Strands of red hair tumbled over her shoulders and into her eyes. She sometimes wondered how she remained sane when around the Marauders, the ones she called friends and husband. Especially when she was around her husband, who along with Sirius, acted the most childish. She felt like she had two children instead of one at times, maybe even three? She'd have to figure that out later.
"I've said nice things before to you." She defended herself with a small huff. With a purse of her lips and a cross of her arms over her chest she squinted in a mock glare at Sirius.
Sirius chuckled at her statement and shook his head, as if finding what she said to be the funniest thing. "Only if it includes an insult afterwards." He shot back with a smirk, knowing he was finally winning the battle of wits the two had been having since they were in Hogwarts. He knew she knew it was true. The two had never been the best of friends when they were younger. They had both thought rather differently about each other during their school years, up until she started dating James and got to know Sirius, Remus and Peter better.
At the sound of a familiar giggle Lily turned to see her husband holding Harley in his lap, having picked her up from the high chair while she and Sirius argued. He had, while the two childish adults battled with each other over who was wittier, cleaned 'Pronglest' as Sirius so affectionately called her, with a wave of his wand.
James was a tall, thin man with hazel eyes and untidy black hair that stuck up at the back. Near the end of his fifth year he had started wearing glasses, although in his first year he had not. For the last few minutes James had showed his daughter magic tricks with a wave of his wand, while whispering little ideas in her head with a mischievous sparkle in his hazel eyes.
"You're be a great prankster when you're older Princess." James whispered in his daughter's ear with a proud loving smile on his lips. Harley gave a giggle at her father. Her large emerald green eyes, so much like his Lily's, gazed up at him with a small happy smile. "You'll prank those nasty little snakes in Hogwarts." James continued with a glint in his eyes as he looked at Harley. With the threat of Voldemort he never knew what would happen and when it would be his last time he ever got to hold his daughter. He spent as much time as he could holding Harley, speaking to her and playing with her.
Lily Potter looked back to Sirius and spoke with a smirk. "We'll finish this battle later Black."
"Bring it Potter." Sirius sneered mockingly. Lily chuckled before turning back to her husband with her hands on her hips.
"James Potter! What are you up to?" She questioned her husband. Walking away from her argument with Sirius, who she wasn't going to let win, she raised an eyebrow at her husband while looking between father and daughter. Her bright eyes glimmered in the light from the fireplace as she stared at the man she loved. James glanced up at his wife, an innocent look crossing his face as he flashed his most charming smile at her. His circular glasses caught the light from the fireplace, making them glisten in the light. His own hazel eyes were filled with love as he gazed at his wife.
"Why, I'm doing nothing at all my Lilyflower. Just chatting with my daughter here and showing her magic." He replied with a grin. "Isn't that right Harley?" He questioned his little girl with a smile. With another wave of his wand he made small sparks shoot out from the tip of his wand in colors of bright red and gold. Harley squealed and bounced in her father's lap with excitement as she clapped her hands, staring in awe at the colorful sparks.
Lily smiled down at her daughter, who looked so much like husband, having the pureblood looks about her already, but had her eyes. "See?" James rhetorically stated with a chuckle. His face lightened at his daughter's giggling. He made two small figurines appear in front of Harley on the table and made them dance in a waltz. Lily nodded her head and took a seat on the love seat besides James and tilted her head. Leaning forward she glanced at her daughter who continued to look on in amazement at the dancing figures.
"You having fun my sweet Angel?" She whispered with a happy and gentle smile at her daughter as Harley continued to giggle oblivious to her mother's sweet little whispers to the beautiful child.
"Prongslet is going to be very talented isn't she? I can already tell, don't know about you lot." Sirius stated, sitting across from the two on the couch, which was near the window as he watched his goddaughter.
"I'm sure she'll be powerful, and very intelligent. Like her parents." Remus Lupin stated from his position beside Sirius. Remus had a pale face with premature lines, and light brown hair that, with each year, became more and more grey. The lines on his face and his greying hair were the results of the great stress his body underwent with each full moon. His clothing were consistently shabby and patched, presumably because of his inability to find a decently-paid job due to his status as a werewolf. A small smile graced his lips as he tiredly watched his best friends son. James glanced up at his friends with a smug grin.
"Of course she will. She'll be amazing, beautiful...gorgeous. Look at who her parents are, who her mother is." James replied arrogantly and proudly with a bit of flattery for Lily. Lily rolled her eyes fondly but smiled from beside her husband and shook her head playfully. She lightly slapped his arm with a fond look.
"Always the arrogant one James. I wonder how I put up with you at times." Lily teased. Her light pink lips turned upwards into a flirty smile. James, who had once again become distracted with their daughter, looked to his wife with a smirk.
"It's because you love me. I mean everyone does." He winked at his wife as he leaned forward, quickly capturing her lips in a loving kiss.
"I do have to admit, I love you." Lily frivolously replied against his lips. They interrupted by the sound of a small cough. Looking to Sirius he nodded towards Harley. The couple glanced down at their daughter and noticed she was looking at them curiously, his head tilted to the side with his small lips parted.
"I believe she's curious to know what you two were doing." Sirius barked out a laugh, sounding much like his animagus form. Lily gave a small giggle at the look on James face.
"She won't know what we were doing until she's older" He pulled Harley to his chest and kissing the on the top of her head. His over-protective, fatherly side shining through.
"We can't always be here for her James. She'll learn about sex when she's older." Lily consoled her husband with amusement. James frowned as his eyebrows furrowed at Lily's words.
"Not if I can help it. You're with me on this right Moony...Padfoot?" James questioned. Looking to his two best friends across from him with a raise of his eyebrow. Sirius and Remus nodded their heads, agreeing just for the sake of stopping James from a panic attack.
"Of course. We'll be there to make sure she remains oblivious to the joys of sex." Sirius stated.
"Of course Prongs. She'll be innocent until she's in her twenties." Remus promised at the same time as Sirius.
James nodded at his best mates words.
"So, has anyone seen Peter?" Lily questioned, breaking the silence that had fallen over them. Having had her thoughts wander to their other missing friend, she often wondered if they should trust him as much as they did. After all, it was impossible to tell who to trust and who not to nowadays. The room went silent at her question, besides the sound of Harley giggling and squealing at the spins and twirls that the dancers on the table did. The men in the room shook their heads, having not seen Peter since the last Order meeting. Lily made a small 'hmm' sounds to herself and nodded. For now, she pushed away any doubts of Peter to the back of her mind.
Lily looked away as the men began to speak of things that held no interest to her. Turning to look at Harley she noticed she beginning to fall asleep in her father's lap. With a tender expression Lily reached over and picked Harley up out of his James' arms and held Harley against her chest, Lily stood and began to pace slowly around the living room. She hummed lightly in her daughter's ear, singing a soft lullaby her parent's use to sing to her as a child.
"My heart always holds you
I promise you Angel it's true
I'm sorry if sometimes
It's hard for you to find
But Angel whatever you do
My heart always holds you
Even when I'm too busy
Or when you do something that I don't like
I hope you know there's always a glow
In my heart because you're in my life
I'm so thankful you're in my life
And my heart always loves you
I promise you Angel it's true
I'm sorry if sometimes
It's hard for you to find
But Angel whatever you do
My heart always loves you
My heart always holds you
Angel I always love you"
The men watched Lily as she sang to her daughter. Her voice was soft and soothing. The young mother seemed to glow with love for her little girl as she paced around the living room. James smiled proudly at how well his wife adapted to being a mother. She was a natural at it. Glancing to his friends he spoke. "I don't know about you mates, but I'm down right exhausted." He stood up from the couch, yawning and scratched the back of his head tiredly. Taking care of a fifteen month old all day was a tiring job. Sirius and Remus nodded, they too felt tired after spending the whole day with little Harley, who was a ball of energy.
"I'll see you tomorrow, yeah?" Sirius questioned his best mate. A smile crossed his lips as he looked at his best friend, his brother in all but blood.
"Of course Padfoot. Why wouldn't I?" James asked with a raise of his eyebrows. Sirius shrugged his shoulders and gave his friend a hug before pulling away. Walking over to Lily, he kissed her on the cheek before bending down and kissing Harley on the forehead. Rubbing her back he gave the sleepy child a smile.
"See ya soon Prongslet." Sirius whispered with a smile. Harley muttered to her godfather, causing his smile to grow, one word he had clearly heard was, 'Pa'foo'. Like Remus had said, she was very smart for her age. "See ya Lily." He stated, turning on his heel making his way towards the front door. He waited beside it for Remus to finish saying his goodbyes.
Remus walked over to Lily and Harley, giving Lily a kiss on the cheek and Harley a kiss on the head. "Night Harley." He whispered to the girl. He knew he had heard 'Moo'y' utter from her lips. Chuckling he walked over to Sirius and together they walked out of Potter Cottage and away from the small home. Heading for their shared apartment.
With another tired yawn James closed and locked the front door behind them, watching them disappear into the fog that had appeared over Godric Hollows. Walking over to where Lily sat on the couch, Harley asleep in her arms, he took a seat beside her. Harley's arms were wrapped around her mother's neck and it made James smile. Silently James wrapped his arm around Lily's shoulders and pulled her towards him. With a glance at the clock Lily noticed it was only around eight. That was the last thing she saw before falling asleep against James.
A Few Hours Later
Lily awoke with a jolt. Her bright green eyes quickly searched around the living room. Her mind clouded over with sleep and frantic thoughts. She shook her head, her eyes slowly becoming less wild and calmer as she stopped frantically searching. She glanced down at her chest to see her daughter, her precious Harley, still asleep in her arms. Sighing with silent relief she sat up and looked to James. Shaking his shoulder she whispered, "James...James." She waited for him to respond, but nothing happened. Rolling her eyes she glanced to the clock hanging above the doorway to the living room to see it was a quarter to twelve. "James!" Lily snapped, jabbing her husband in the shoulder. With a jerk James awoke and looked around blearily.
"Wha...what happened?" James questioned. His glasses lay crooked on his nose, hanging off his ear. Adjusting his glasses he ran a hand through his hair and yawned tiredly.
"We should head to bed." She stated simply, standing from the love seat she adjusted her hold of the lightweight in her arms. Kissing her son on his head, she brushed Harley's unruly hair down, trying to straighten it. "She has your hair you know. I wouldn't be surprised if she gets your attitude as well when she's older." Lily spoke, her voice still in a whisper. She didn't want to wake up daughter, not if she could help it. The living room was colder now the fireplace having long since gone out. The only lighting came from the hall.
"I bet she'll be like both of us." James replied with a smile as he followed his wife. Together they walked out into the long hallway that led to the staircase, the kitchen, and the front door. The couple began to walk towards the long staircase, both wishing for the soft bed that called out to them.
The sudden sound of a loud slam gave the couple a start as they turned and quickly looked to the figure standing in the doorway. Standing at the door, in all his dark and evil glory, with an air of death around him, was Lord Voldemort himself. "Lily run! It's him! He found us!" James yelled to his wife. "I'll fight him off for as long as I can! Go!" James yelled to his wife, kissing her one last time he pushed her away and pulled out his wand.
"James..." Lily started to say, but was caught off with James yelling at her to run. "I love you." She whispered to him with tears in her green eyes.
"I love you too." James stated as well, before pushing her up the stairs. Lily quickly scampered up the stairs, holding Harley tightly in her arms as the tears in her eyes flowed fluidly down her cheeks. Stopping at the top of the stairs she watched as a bright green light flooded the room for a moment.
"Oh Merlin...James." She sobbed as she ran swiftly down the dark hallway. She instinctively knew where she was going, having wandered down these halls so many times before. Reaching Harley's nursery she quickly slammed the door shut and rushed over to the window. Trying to open it, she found it futile. She closed her eyes and tried to apparate and found that hopeless as well. "Oh Merlin..." She muttered to herself. Quickly she walked over to the crib and held her daughter to her chest. Taking a small breathe in she set Harley gently down.
Harley had awoken to the sounds of the fight and was now looking to his mother with wide eyes. He could almost feel his mothers fear, sadness and pain, like it was his own. "Oh Harley." Lily sniffled as her tears quickly fell down her face. Looking down the young mother frowned. Wiping away her tears a watery smile crossed her shaking and quivering lips. She bent down and held the bars of the crib as she stared into eyes exactly like hers. "I love you so much Harley. You're father loves you very much as well. We will always love and watch over you." She whispered to her daughter.
Lily new her daughter would survive. The ritual she and James had decided on had said that if two lives sacrificed themselves for another, willingly dying and not defending themselves to protect someone else, than that person would survive even the darkest of curses. They had known what they were doing when they had performed the ritual on their daughter a few months ago. Now, it was her time to finish the ritual. She didn't care what happened to herself, as long as her little girl survived. Even if she was not able to raise and see her child grow, the knowledge that as long as her daughter remained healthy and happy was enough for her.
Lily stood quickly as the door to the nursery slammed open, rattling the pictures hanging on the wall. She turned and faced the man that had been hunting for daughter ever since she was born. She would not allow the monster to kill her child. She had made sure of that.
"Stand aside girl, and I'll spare you your life." Voldemort hissed from his cloaked hood.
"Please...Please not Harley. Take me instead...please…anyone but Harley, not him." Lily begged to the Dark Lord.
"Stand aside girl! I'll ask you one last time." He growled in impatience.
"Please...take me. Not Harley...Not my baby. Please, not Harley. Take me instead." She begged again with a pleading look. Glancing over her shoulder she gave a sad smile at her daughter. She had never expected to live and the knowledge that she was saving her child with her and James' sacrifice of willingly dying without truly fighting for their lives, was enough to let her go with peace.
The bright green light of the Killing Curse filled the nursery. A scream echoed through the nursery before the light dimmed. Lily Potter's lifeless body collapsed to the floor in front of Harley's crib. Harley Potter, the last living Potter, sat silently in her crib, looking at her mother's unmoving body before looking away and at Voldemort with her enchanting green eyes. The child and Dark Lord stared at each other for a moment. Shaking himself, Voldemort raised his wand and pointed it at the girl's forehead.
The Dark Lord seemed to hesitate for a moment, before hissing out the killing curse for a third time, having already killed her fierce and protective parents. "Avada Kedavra!"
What happened next was unexpected. The bright green light of the killing curse rebounded off of Harley, and shot back at Voldemort. With a cry of pain and rage, Voldemort disappeared, his cloak and wand falling to the floor. Harley sniffled as pain began to fill her forehead. Slowly, ruby red droplets of blood began to drip down her forehead and into her eyes from an odd shaped lightening bolt scar on her forehead. With another sniffle, she began to cry aloud, waiting for her mother, or father, for someone to pick her up and make her feel loved and protected again, but it never happened, not until an hour or two later.
So this chapter has been re-edited as of 11/12/12.
Reviews would be great.
