    Summary

    Harry Potter is not safe at Number Four Privet Drive, but Lily Potter’s posthumous magic demands that he have a home, so in a crack of thunder four-year-old Harry flashes into existence next to Sirius Black, occupying Cell 12, North Tower, Azkaban.
    Harry is anonymous there. No one knows who he was before he joined Padfoot in Cell 12, so he is given a new name and raised by Death Eaters, trained for Dark Magic and maybe a little crazier than he ought to be.
    He knows only the stone walls and the cold until Minerva McGonagall stumbles into Dumbledore's office holding a first-year's letter addressed to the wizarding prison, and he is brought from its stone depths to attend Hogwarts.
    He is not the Martyr Dumbledore wanted, and he is not the Savior the Wizarding World asked for.
    This is not the Harry Potter you thought you knew.

    Harry senses an opportunity. A prophecy shatters.

    Summary

    chi·me·ra
    (noun)
    a thing that is hoped or wished for but in fact is illusory or impossible to achieve; an impossible dream.

     

    Harry Potter arrives at Hogwarts on September 1, 1991 and is everything the wizarding world expects. He is the Boy Who Lived: a brave, brash Gryffindor who will stand as a beacon for the Light.

    It's almost a pity that it's all a lie.

    (OR: an AU where Harry is taken from the Dursely's by a resurrected Voldemort and raised by loyal Death Eaters. To the world he's the Light's Golden Boy but his true self exists beneath a delicate bone mask and stands as the Dark Lord's equal)
