Description:

The functional Point Of Departure is that Lucius and Narcissa Malfoy have a child before Draco, and consequently their development is slightly different. By the time Draco meets Harry, he's realized the value of friendship and is more open of a person. The POD for Harry is when he meets Draco in Madam Malkin's robe shop. In TSH, unlike canon, he introduces himself to Draco. They shake hands and decide to be friends. They spend the next month before school exchanging letters, and on the train Harry is introduced to other children Draco knows. We see Ron and Hermione, but Harry doesn't interact with them. Things really deviate from canon when Harry is Sorted into Slytherin. The story is distinct from the many other Harry-in-Slytherin fics because it doesn't turn on Harry being sorted to Slytherin but rather on Harry becoming friends with Draco. This fanfic is an attempt to tell the big overplot of the Harry Potter series using the Slytherin characters.
