Disclaimer: I do not own Harry Potter, alas, and I am making no money from this, it is purely for entertainment and fun.
Harry Potter calmly installed himself as ruler of magical Britain and immediately began to make changes to the betterment of all magical beings, and not just to witches and wizards.
There were protests, of course, but they swiftly died down when Magic herself appeared and took the troublemakers to task, making good on her promise of stripping them of their magic and forcing them to live the rest of their lives as Muggles in the Muggle world.
After that, no one dared to protest too loudly, although there were plenty of angry mutters since most wizards did not appreciate learning that werewolves now had rights, as had other magical creatures, even the goblins.
It didn't take long, however, before the wizards and witches of Britain began to realise that their lives were getting better. The papers now only reported the truth. Taxes were lowered, and the products available in the shops got cheaper with a bigger selection of a higher quality.
The new court only employed knowable and competent people, drastically improving the services for the people, and Hogwarts got the long overdue overhaul she so desperately needed. New subjects were introduced, competent teachers were hired and the incompetent once were fired. (Among those were Binns and Trelawney.)
Needless to say, Albus Dumbledore was promptly fired as Headmaster of Hogwarts and Remus Lupin was instated in his stead. Sirius Black became the new Defence against the Dark Arts teacher, once he had spent a few months at St Mungo's to deal with his time in Azkaban.
Severus Snape did not return to teaching, although he did, somewhat grudgingly, accept truly gifted students as apprentices, wanting to make sure that the things he had learned from Slytherin and Magic was spread among the populous and would not be forgotten again. One of those students was Draco Malfoy who in time rose to be the second best Potions master in the world, only second to his mentor and godfather, Severus Snape.
Hermione Granger was at first thrilled to learn that Harry was the ruler of the magical world, especially when he began to work for a more just system for all magical creatures.
However, when Harry didn't immediately implement her suggestions, such as freeing all House Elves, things began to sour between them, until Hermione turned her back on her long-time friend, starting to campaign against him, proclaiming him Dark when he refused to follow her counsel. Not even when Magic went to talk to her did Hermione listen, stubbornly insisting that she new best, even going so far as citing several books that proved her point of view, no matter what arguments Magic came up with to counter her logic.
In the end, Magic was forced to strip her gift from Hermione, sending her back to the Muggle world where she lived out the rest of her life, becoming a dentist like her parents, taking over their practise when they wished to retire.
Ronald Weasley did abandon his dream of becoming an Auror. Even thought the new system was much improved, Ron could never get over his hatred of all things Slytherin, refusing to work someplace where a Malfoy would be his boss.
Instead, he became a full-time chess player, participating in the tournaments Harry instigated, and over the years he made himself a name as a Supreme Chess Master, finally finding the fame and recognition he had craved all his life.
Lucius Malfoy was happy spending his time helping Harry as his right hand man. There were many things wrong with the magical world, and he enjoyed wading in and fixing the mistakes of previous ministers. He and Harry did not always agree on the best way to deal with the problems, but whenever they seriously disagreed, Magic acted as referee, and since her will was absolute no harm was done to their bond, leaving them free to bicker and argue, and make up, to their hearts content.
Harry Potter went down in history as a hard yet fair ruler of the magical world. With time he was placed on the same pedestal as King Arthur and many scholars and wise men argued which ruler had benefited the populace the most.
Harry found the whole thing ridiculous and refused to comment. He did his job to the best of his ability, and was happy to retire with his mates to Magic's realm some five hundreds years later.
Albus Dumbledore was pushed to the side, no longer wanted as an advisor of any kind by anyone. Due to Magic's displeasure with his actions, Albus was forced to live on the fringe of the magical world, unable to do anything but watch as Harry created a world where anyone who wished to work hard could prosper, no matter who your parents were or what type of blood ran through your veins. It was with relief the old man was allowed to finally rest when Harry retired, although his next great adventure turned out to be not so great as he was greeted by a very displeased Lily Potter who made it her mission in death to make the next few centuries of Dumbledore's life a pure misery. The remaining Marauders were only too happy to help her with her quest.
As for Cornelius Fudge, he spent the rest of his life in self-imposed exile, spending most of his time in various pubs, crying into his fire whiskey and bemoaning his fate to anyone he managed to snare. Since everyone knew who he was and what he had done, Cornelius was forced to resort to using super glue to keep his captives in place long enough to pour out his feelings of injustice. (Sticking charms were too easily cancelled, allowing his victims to escape far too soon to the former minister's displeasure)
Since no one else appreciated this method, Fudge swiftly found himself persona-non-grata at a growing number of establishments, forcing him to travel from town to town looking for the next pub to drown his sorrows at.
And that, my dear friends, is how the event known as Fudge's Fudge came about. And the lesson we learned was to not suppress the truth, and to never, ever mess with Magic and her subjects.
A/N: And so we reach the end of this journey. I hope you have had fun reading this story; I most certainly had a blast writing it.
Until Next Time,
