    Summary

    "So you're adopted?
     

    "Supposedly."

     

    "So your Dad ... he's not ...?"

     

    "Seems like it."

     
    "Huh." Theo stares at Harry with those grey eyes that look silver in the cauldron smoke between them. "But you're the heir to this ... House of Prince, so he's probably -"

     

    "Yes. Probably." Harry looks at Theo sharply. "You don't know who he is, do you?"

     

    "No." Theo looks back just as sharply. "If I did, I would tell you. You know I would."

     

    "I do."

     

    Something loosens inside Harry's chest. Something that has been tightening ever since Cedric died. He may not have his friends, or Sirius, or even know who he fucking is anymore, but he has this. At least he has Theo.

     

    Summer of 4th year and Harry's all alone, dealing with his grief and the sudden revelation that James Potter is not his father. Support comes in a strange form. The form of Theo Nott, son of a death Eater. A strange friend who says he'll help him find his true father, whoever this Lord Prince might be.

    Summary

    It takes Skull forty-seven near-death-experiences, twenty-two murders, eight poisoned meals and the enforced proximity of five remorseless killers to find something worth living for. Because the Higher Powers do so love their irony.

    In which the problem isn’t that Skull doesn’t know there’s something wrong with him, it’s that he doesn’t think it matters. [It’s that he decides he does.]

    Summary

    Getting grabbed around the ankle at the last second by a screaming Uncle Vernon? Not great.

    Kicking Vernon in the face while Fred shouted, “Floor it!”, thus resulting in the Dursley patriarch falling out a window?

    Genuinely a top 10 moment in Harry’s life.

    ---
    After dying and being thrown back into his 11 year-old body with limited access to his memories from his past life, Harry's had to get by with only his ever-present sense of deja-vu to keep him from making the same choices (and mistakes) as he did before. But now that he's more connected than ever with his sixth-sense, the barriers that kept his past from him are breaking down. Dreams and visions are bombarding him more frequently, and just in time. The Chamber of Secrets has been opened, and as his deja-vu brain keeps saying, "It's not happening like it did last time."
