Disclaimer: I do not own Harry Potter, I'm just using it for my own fun. I do own Isobel Trisvinaté, as well as any other original characters who may pop up, as well as the plot of this story.
Summary: What if... One of the other students who had detention with Umbridge wasn't as prideful and selfish as Harry, and actually did something to rid of Umbridge, which causes a effect that they couldn't have foreseen.
Okay, this fic is mostly an idea that wouldn't leave me alone, a what if idea that basically questions certain things, not just what's been mentioned in the summary. Some of what will be seen is a What if the ICW had a certain act they've been itching to enact on England, but were unable to do so with Dumbledore has head; what if Fudge was replaced by a more competent minister who had her own ethics code that was pretty at odd with most of the Dumbledore's ideas, as well as the Pureblood factions; and what if Harry learns certain fact that has him beginning to question if Dumbledore actually deserves any of the praise and loyalty he's had, from anyone.
These are the main three ideas that you'll be seeing, with many little facets to them. As I don't actually have more than a vague idea on how this story is going to go, I might end up confusing people, but I'll try to make it seem flow as much as possible. Some of what goes on may appear a bit out there, but please bare with me, this is an idea for a what if senario, so you probably should definitely expect AU senarios.
Edit 12-25-15: I've begun to edit this story, partially because I know that it needs it, and partially because my rereads through it in order to remember some of what I've put in it have made me realize that there are a few things that I mixed up.
Telling the World
The corridors were silent, empty of the students that usually graced it during the light of day. In fact, due to the hour, most of the castle was silent, the common rooms almost completely empty of students, almost all of which were tucked into their beds, falling asleep if they weren't already sleeping. However, there was one girl who wasn't sleeping, or even in bed about to fall asleep. Instead, this girl had just arrived in her common room, due to the fact that she'd just had detention with one of her teachers. There was glassy sheen over her eyes, suggesting that she was trying not to cry.
That stupid bitch she thought as she made her way over to one of the chairs near the fireplace. Her left hand – her writing hand – throbbed in pain. She looked down at it, seeing the words I will not tell lies carved into the skin, inflamed and slightly bloody. She read the words over and over again, along with remembering what had caused the need for them to be there to begin with – expressing her opinion that Harry Potter was not lying about Voldemort's return, pointing out that he'd be the last person to proclaim it without it being true.
Professor Umbridge – also known as Umbitch to the majority of the students – had overhead, and had unfairly assigned her detention for saying that. She wasn't sure what to think about that, since she hadn't heard a word of what went on there, other than they had to write lines, but that very night, she learned what it was that Umbitch was doing, the result of which was on her hand.
A wave of anger ran through her. What it was that Umbitch was doing was nothing short of torture, and, without another thought, she pulled out a piece of parchment and a quill. Within moments, she had finished quilling her letters. There was one to her father, one to the editor of the Daily Prophet, another to the new Supreme Mugwump of the ICW, and a final one to her uncle, whom was the head of her family house. She chuckled to herself as she thought about what Umbitch's reaction would be when her head of house showed her the error of her ways. After all, she was Isobel Trisvinaté, of the Most Ancient and Most Noble House of Trisvinaté. And, while the other Most Ancient and Most Noble Houses with heirs – or heads, as Harry technically was – in the school didn't seem to be doing anything – then again, from what she saw, Harry didn't seem to show a sign of even knowing what his heritage actually was – she wasn't going to be like them.
However, remembering who backed Umbitch up, Isobel knew that she would need more than to just tell her head of house. Having learned of how things were often swept under the rug at the Ministry, and also knowing that Fudge would make sure that what she had to say would never see daylight – and he wasn't above going over his station to do so – Isobel knew that she would have to employ every inch of the Slytherin that the Sorting Hat had sensed in her in order to get what she needed to get done. And she could hardly wait to see the results of her work when they came to be. More than that, though, knowing what would happen once it became known what Umbitch had done to her, was the fact Umbitch would get her just desserts.
I cannot wait to see that bitch put in jail, where worthless beings like her belong she thought as she sealed her letter up, and called her personal elf to her. After all, she wanted the letters to get to where they needed to, not be found by Umbitch. Then, dreaming of what the consequences to Umbitch would be, she fell asleep, a happy smile on her face.
I know, this is a short preface, but it's not a sign of how each chapter will be. I'm going to at least try to get chapters close to being three thousand words before I even consider posting them, though the first few chapters might just barely come close to that.
At the moment, the chapters for this are coming out pretty quickly, though I won't be posting them all at once. I want to know if the story is worth continuing before I make a commitment to continue it.
Please, please, please review, it's the only way I'll know if you like the idea or not.
