Fandoms: Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling
17 Oct 2017
The summer after her fourth year is the worst one yet and Harry knows with grim certainty that her Uncle is going to kill her before she can even reach her fifteenth birthday. So she leaves. Finds herself by the edge of an forest - knows that no one is going to look for her out there.
And she's content on her own - finds the rhythm of survival. Learns.
She knows that the day she meets Nagini that she should have left. She's had dreams looking out from those exact slitted pupils - knows that she puts her life in danger every day she stays with Voldemort's familiar. But it's hard to be scared when Nagini huffs about her 'silly speaker' and complain about him working too hard and praises him for his toasty winter bed.
But then, it's not Harry Potter who Tom meets that day in the clearing.
It's Nagini's 'Little Wolf' - and that changes everything.
She wakes up in a massacre, drool and blood dripping down the front of her shirt as she stares emptily at the two dead bodies before her.
A part of her mind is screaming, howling at the memories of countless deaths carved into it and the burning betrayal of his brother.
The other is sobbing hysterically at the memory of hands that took and took until there wasn’t anything left to take.
It takes her months to come to terms with the fact that she’s not dead but alive and trapped in the body of a six-year-old little boy whose brother had massacred his entire family. She feels disconnected from the world she's awaken in, where children are being taught to kill and she's living in the same house the boy saw his family be slaughtered and no one seems to care.
Being reborn isn't fun.
Being reborn as Uchiha Sasuke is a mess and a half.

He’s twelve when he realises, from notes and scribbles and an unsteady conversation with the vigilante Stain, who speaks with him as if they’ve met before, that dying picks at his brain – erasing bits and pieces of his memories and leaving his mind in a shoddy patchwork of a mess.
At that point it’s already too late – whatever he’d been before he was Deku is completely gone, dissolved from his mind with only a vague idea of a woman who’d meant something.
