    Summary

    March 1984. Walburga Black sits alone in Grimmauld Place, accompanied only by her ghosts, a broken woman with little left to live for. The House of Black lays in ruins, it's members scattered, awaiting its inevitable demise. Until, one day, a Ministry owl comes tapping at her window, bearing news that offers a last chance to change the course of her life - and the fate of the Black family.

    Seizing the opportunity to free her son from Azkaban and secure him the trial he was denied, Walburga quickly finds out that three years in prison has done little to quell Sirius Black's rebellious spirit, and it is soon clear that he is not going to simply follow the plans she has so carefully laid out for him.

    As the impending trial approaches, both Sirius and Walburga must grapple with their broken relationship and stormy past - and Sirius himself must decide whether he will seize the chance of the freedom offered to him, or whether he will send himself back to Azkaban for the punishment he is so convinced he deserves...

    My take on the "Walburga gets Sirius out of Azkaban" scenario.

    Summary

    At six years old, Harry Potter knew many things. He could recite the alphabet, and count to fifty without any help. He ( mostly) knew how to read and to write. He learned his colors and even had a favorite (grey). Harry knew how to tie his shoes,dress himself, and clean himself up at night. He knew how to run really fast, and climb trees really high, and to hide in the shadows.
    He learned to stay as quiet as possible; recognized the difference between a sprained ankle and a broken leg, and understand that fingers were not meant to be bent backwards, or that the sound of a snap meant pain. He knew what it felt like to be burned by the stove, the sound a belt makes on a bare back, the feel of a fist hitting his stomach and his face. He quickly learned that to silence his tears, and that a mumble or a cry would make it worse.
    Yes, at six, Harry knew a lot, and not much of it was good. But this isn't just a
    story of what Harry knew, but also a story of what he will learn, and of how he will use that knowledge.
