    Summary

    Adeline is doing an apprenticeship with Nicholas Flamel to receive her Alchemy mastery. Together they are researching the similarities of the resurrection stone and the philosopher's stone. Adeline, Evangeline and Nicholas come up with a plan to resurrect the Dark Lord (to restore the balance of magic and their world) and with a plan to restore his sanity. They start to research and collect his horcruxes when they realise Harry is one, and that they cannot safely remove it.

    In the mean time Harry grows up in a home surrounded by love, books and the smartest people in the wizarding world and becomes a genius and happy boy. He doesn't like manipulation and questions everything, which ruins every single plan Dumbledore has for him. It frustrates the man to no end.

    This is the story of how Harry grew up and his first year at Hogwarts.

    Summary

    Nineteen-year-old Severus Snape is dangerously close to the edge. As the young professor struggles with depression, habits that he’d hoped to leave behind resurface, and he once again finds himself craving the solace of his blade. It’s up to his mentors, Albus and Minerva, to find him help before it’s too late.

    And, well, after the intervention? All Severus can really say is that the path to recovery certainly isn’t what he’d expected.

    Summary

    Wisteria "Terry" Petrovya, the daughter of two Squibs, finds a friend in Harry Potter when she and her dad move into Number Ten, Privet Drive, Little Whinging, Surrey.

     

    Harry held up Volume One. “‘The power to overcome reasoning is born from reasoning. Magic isn’t a miracle. When the ‘spirit’ that flows through us, and the ‘spirit’ flow in nature connects, they will form an embodiment for the first time… Pouring your soul into whatever you do is the magic.’”
    “You really want to do this?” Terry asked softly. Harry nodded. “Harry, there is magic in this world. You and me, we’re actually wizards.”
    “Not yet,” Harry said firmly. “But we will be, once we learn our magic.”

    Summary

    Harry is a Metamorphmagus who can change his physical age. When the Dursleys discover this, they send him out to earn his keep, making Harry pay rent to live in the cupboard, as well as charging him for using Vernon's hand-me-downs. Harry gets a job as a laborer and quickly discovers his knack for building and fixing. The Dursleys walk a fine line between their desire to extort as much money as possible from Harry and Harry's vile Aunt Petunia's desperation to keep him living at Number Four. Meanwhile, Harry builds a life separate from the Dursleys and very different from what Albus Dumbledore expected. Title is a reference to a quote discussed later in the story.

    Summary

    “All he had ever wanted in life was the approval of someone, anyone, and the only hope he had was from his family.”

    Hadrian Potter is different, unusual, and strange. He could go on and on, but he won’t because it would be useless. Be quiet, be obedient, be polite, follow the rules, and always do as you’re told. The rules as they are, and he will follow them, he will. When he does, maybe then he’ll finally be loved.

    Hadrian Potter accepts this as his life, but then a letter comes.
    What will this change, or will it change nothing?

    Summary

    One-shot. Based on a headcanon I have that in the Wizarding World prenatal care spells are focused on reading the child's magic, and how that would apply to a transgender child.

    More details on the transphobia tag can be found in the endnotes, for anyone concerned. It spoils a fair bit of the story, since this is a short piece, but I don't want anyone caught off guard or feeling like they have to disregard this story because they don't know what it will be like.

    Summary

    A bushy-haired eleven year-old witch and her family move in next door to Harry during the summer before their first year at Hogwarts. [HARMONY, but it's when they're 11, so it's not what would be considered romantic. Canon is assumed, except where clearly contradicted by this story. Mild Ron-bashing; Major Snake-bashing (I mean…Snape-bashing). But plenty of love for the twins.]
