"Mum!" James groaned. They had just got off the Hogwarts Express for the winter holidays and James was practically being suffocated.
"Sorry dear. Hi Sirius, Remus." She said warmly and hugged them to. "Oh, you must be Harry, come here don't be shy." She said once she released Sirius and Remus and suffocated him also. She was much stronger than Mrs. Weasley.
"Don't suffocate him, Jane. Hello Harry, I'm Damian, James' father." He said shaking the teen's hand.
James had sent a letter home saying who Harry was and where he was from. He didn't tell them of his Hogwarts years because that is not something that you want spread around.
"Hello sir." Harry said politely.
"You're so polite, probably got that from his mother." Damian teased. "But I don't want any of this sir business, we're family call me Damian or grandpa. Wow that sounds weird to say." He said as an after thought.
"Okay, you boys know how to Apparate, go to the house, I'll bring Harry." Jane said and there were multiple pops.
Like always Harry landed roughly. When he righted himself he stared at the manor in awe. It was as large as Malfoy Manor.
"Coming Harry?" James called from the front door.
"The boys can give you a tour once you settle into your room." Damian said and Harry nodded.
"Come on. I have my own wing but since Remus and Sirius are here a lot we named it the Marauders Wing."
As they were walking Harry was staring at all of the walls, there were paintings all over the place. Once they reached the Marauders Wing Harry passed several rooms and noticed the boys rooms had their animagus forms on the doors.
"This will be your room. As you can probably guess our animals are on the door." James said waved his wand and a horse appeared on Harry's door.
Harry's room was across from Remus to the left of Sirius and James was across from Sirius.
"Thanks dad." Harry said and walked into his room. He gasped. His room looked like the Great Plains in America. There were murals on all of the walls of the grass with horses and Buffalo. There was a campfire area in the center with charms so it wouldn't spread. He had a bathroom attached. There were no couches in his room. There was a desk however. Someone knocked and walked in.
"Like it?" James asked,
"I love it. How'd you manage this?" Harry asked.
"I had this wing charmed so that whatever animal is put onto the wall their natural habitat became the theme of the room. Padfoot's is the countryside. Mines a day forest and Remy's is a night forest. Personally it creeps me out but Remus likes it so nothing I can do." James said.
"What else is in your wing?" Harry asked.
"Dueling room, small library, rec room and more bedrooms. The charm I had was added on later so if I put an animal on the rec room it would adapt."
Harry was impressed.
"How about the rest of the tour?" James suggested and Harry nodded his head.
There were only two floors and a basement but there were three main wings and a staircase each led them to it. Under James' wing there multiple living rooms of different colors and at the end of the hallway there was a large ballroom. Under the middle wing (Damian's) there was the dinning hall and the kitchens were located just behind it. Underneath Jane's wing there was the main library and offices. Guest bathrooms were scattered about. In the basement there was a giant pool with a slide and diving board. Outside there was a Quidditch Pitch, a mini lake a large garden and a gazebo in the middle. Harry was staring at it all in awe. This place was magnificent. Harry could definitely get used to living here.
Harry had send Lucius Malfoy a letter and they had agreed to meet on neutral territory at the Leaky Cauldron in one of the rooms. Lucius had been intrigued and cautious as to why a Potter would want to talk to him privately. He of course knew he was from the future, his friend told him as soon as he could.
Harry's family had been extremely worried that he was going to meet Lucius by himself but after a lot of talking and a memory showing what Harry was capable of they let him go without any more fuss. Harry arrived there first and he went to the room and ordered tea. Two minutes later Lucius walked in.
"Hello Mr. Potter. I hope I didn't keep you waiting long." Lucius said.
"Nope I got here two minutes ago."
"What is this all about? When I received your letter saying that you wanted to talk to me I was very curious." Lucius said as they sat down in the chairs.
"First I want an oath saying that you won't tell anyone what I say or do." Harry said, he couldn't risk having Voldemort find out or the Horcrux hunt would be much longer.
"I Lucius Abraxas Malfoy swear on my magic to never reveal what Harry Potter says or does. So mote it be." There was a soft glow then died when the oath took place.
"Okay, so you know that I'm from the future. What you don't know is that I kill Lord Voldemort at age sixteen."
Lucius' eyes went wide. He only followed his father because he thought that it was the winning side. Now he was sure it was the wrong choice.
"Why tell me this?" Lucius asked.
"Because I need something that I hope you have to destroy him in this time."
"What is it?"
"A black book with the initials T.M Riddle on the back"
Lucius thought about it for a long time. He vaguely remembered his father carrying a little black book to the library.
"I think I do."
"If you could get it, that would be great. It's a very important piece to destroy Voldemort."
"Hold on, why are you helping me this easily?" Harry asked.
"I thought it would be obvious. I thought that the Dark Lord had all of the power; that he would win in the end. Then I learn that a sixteen-year-old kills a powerful wizard."
Harry nodded. "Ah, that Slytherin preservation thing right?"
"Are you marked? I'm not going to tell anyone, I'm just curious."
"No. I'm to be marked when I turn twenty one which will be during the summer."
Harry sighed in relief. "Okay, that's good."
"Call me Harry."
"Harry, what am I like in the future?" Lucius asked.
"You're Voldemort's right hand man. You're married to Narcissa Black and have a son, Draco. Intimidating pureblood lord who bribes the Minister for Voldemort, and probably yourself. You're cold and distant and a little arrogant in public but I don't know about your private life. You did deflect in the final battle but there had already been so much damage that people didn't care."
Lucius stared at the teen. He had become everything he didn't want to be.
"W-what about Draco?" Lucius hoped that his son wouldn't follow his path.
"He was an arrogant person who hated me because I turned down his friendship in first year because I didn't like his attitude. He's snobbish and always threatened to tell you what was happening since everyone knew who you were. He was marked but after the first month he started spying like Severus. He didn't die in the final battle but his arm became paralyzed."
Lucius sighed. At least it was better than his fate.
"What are your parents like?" Harry asked, he was curious and wondered if he needed to…do something about them.
"My father is a heartless bastard who follows Voldemort because he believes that Muggleborns should be exterminated. He's Voldemort's right hand man now. He's also powerful and has a lot of influence in the Ministry. My mother…she just wants me to be safe. She never really went out of her way to be with me but I guess that mothering instinct tells her to keep her child safe."
Harry nodded. He'd have to think about this before he took any action. On one hand it would be better to take out Abraxas not but he wasn't sure if that meant Lucius would be marked earlier than planned.
"Would you be sad if your father died? Would you switch to Voldemort again if he shows he's going to win?" Harry asked. He needed to know so he could plan.
"No, I would actually dance on his grave. Not really but you get my point. And no I will not switch. I know for a fact now that Voldemort will be destroyed no matter what time period."
Harry nodded again. "Well, that's all I needed to know. If you could get me that book as soon as possible I would be grateful, Mr. Malfoy."
"Call me Lucius, you earned it. And I will owl it as soon as possible."
"Lucius…wow it's weird to call you by your first name. And thank you." Harry chuckled and so did the blonde. They both nodded to each other and Apparated to their respective homes.
"So how did it go?" Jane asked worriedly when Harry came back. They all were in the blue living room.
"It went very well. Lucius is on our side now and won't switch back and he has what I need." Harry said grinning.
"That's good. What do you need?" Damian asked.
"It's something that can destroy Voldemort."
The two older Potters didn't say anything more.
After gaining their permission Harry had invited Regulus to Potter Manor the next day. The man agreed but was very wary being in this manor and with Sirius so close.
"What do you want, Potter?" Regulus asked, well more like snapped.
"I know you don't want to follow Voldemort." Harry said bluntly.
Regulus gave a surprised expression before putting up his mask again.
"You don't know anything."
"You do know I come from the future right? That I know what happens to you and that you don't like being a Death Eater." Harry said.
Regulus sighed. "What can I do though, it's not like I can deflect. And what happens to me?"
"Well, you can deflect, but I'll need an oath before we get into that. As to what happens to you, you die trying to destroy Voldemort."
Regulus' eyes went wide at that. "I Regulus Arcturus Black swear on my magic to never reveal what Harry Potter says or does. So mote it be."
"Okay, so you die by inferi attacking you. You go after Slytherins Locket. As to how you deflect it's actually quite simple. Just do it, be like Sirius, well not the pranking but you know what I mean. Are you marked?"
"No. But where will I go after? My parents will hate me." Regulus said.
"I'm going to have to talk to them but why don't you live here? Sirius does when he's not in school. Or I can talk to Dumbledore and you can live in the castle."
"I'd have to think about that."
"Understandable. Now follow me."
Harry decided to reunite the Black brothers and locked them both in Sirius' room. Three hours later they got worried and went into Sirius' room to find Sirius asleep next to Regulus and it looked like both had been crying. The room was a mess and Regulus was sporting pink hair but they couldn't help but smile at the two.
Harry had a huge grin on his face. Finally things were going right.
