    Summary

    On a dark night long ago, Sirius Black took a wrong turn and never found Peter Pettigrew. Instead of Azkaban, Sirius settled down in Little Whinging to keep an eye on his godson, and hired Remus Lupin to run his bookshop for him. Then one day when Harry was eight, Sirius found out how the Dursleys treated him, and stole him away.

    Stealing Harry is an alternate universe version of Harry Potter's life before his time at Hogwarts. It is the story of Harry's family: Sirius and Remus, Ted and Andromeda, Nymphadora, Neville Longbottom, and even Severus Snape, all banded together against a newly powerful Peter Pettigrew who is still searching for a way to resurrect Voldemort.

    Laocoon's Children follows Harry through his time at Hogwarts as he develops a very different group of friends: Hufflepuff Draco Malfoy, Ravenclaw Padma Patil, and Gryffindor Neville Longbottom, strange companions for a Harry who was sorted into Slytherin -- the house of his beloved Professor Snape.

    This universe ends in Harry's third year, and is partially incomplete. As it is not likely to be finished, the last story in the series is a group of notes I made on where the story would have gone and how it would have ended.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    clever, neat storytelling that explodes off the blocks of canon to truly explore the wizarding world and ground it into historical & cultural reality.

    though i am fiercely protective of Harry's connections with The Weasleys (Ron and Ginny in particular), the way this AU unfolds is so deliberate in balancing parallels and fates so that, even in triumph and love, Consequences strike and many are inevitabilties of the very grounded realities the 'verse sets.

    my head burns with things to specify as well done, things to note for when next i think of this series and the odd lack of heartsickness at not having it all.

    the writer's post on moving on from the series: the guilt at it being unfinished, the awareness that re-sorting canon that was yet-to-come into a 'verse that was doing well enough on its own... i got into the HP fandom LATE: i'd had the epilogue and deaths spoiled to me before having read any of the books, then i had the last book to read first (i needed the distraction badly), and thus was never in-synch with all the big commotions of it.

    i am very weary now for once i'd started this i didn't stop (trye for the canon books as well... but this time even breaks to sleep were gone without) but this is Good Learning Material, of good storytelling structure & good writing ettiquette & a solid spending of time i do not regret.

    Summary

    This is my take on how Child of the Moon should have gone.

    The Henry, Gold, and Regina scenes remain, because really, I liked them a lot, but the rest... well, let's just say I've tinkered.
