    Summary

    But the thing that really cements it into a good, solid Idea comes to him the week after, when he listens to NEWT students arguing about space expansion and inertia charms in the common room. The Idea goes like this:

    A) Harry would like to always have food to eat.
    a) Harry has money to buy food, but is also scared of money, because Petunia has convinced him that he’s not worth a 3.99 pound sandwich.
    b) Harry also doesn’t know how much money he has, or how much money things cost, and would rather avoid this whole “money” thing altogether for as long as he can.
    c) Theoretically, food can be grown without using money.

    :::

    AU starting from first year where Harry's a bit more food insecure, doesn't actively hate gardening, and learns about portable greenhouses. Several cascading mistakes later, he's running a food bank as well as the New Hogwarts Orphan Peer Support Group, has developed capital-O Opinions about food quality and preparation, and has a new stoner godfather, which may or may not have something to do with a favor from powerful friends Harry made in the London restaurant underworld as a mysterious out-of-season morel supplier.

    Updated sporadically.

    Summary

    In 1993, Gilderoy Lockhart points a stolen wand at Harry Potter and Ron Weasley with the intent to Obliviate them.

    The wand doesn't backfire. Gilderoy's "discovery" of the Chamber of Secrets is a short-term success.

    Other consequences are not short-term at all.

    Lovely long, intricate, character filled, tale. Clever, capable people. Much to be liked and worthy of many re-readings too :)

    Summary

    In September of 1971, Severus Snape finds a forgotten portrait of the Slytherin family in a dark corner of the Slytherin Common Room. At the time, he has no idea that talking portrait will affect the rest of his life.

    On 31st July 1995, Harry Potter disappears from Little Whinging a few minutes after midnight. The means of his departure are unfathomable, and the Order's only relief in their concern is the fact that Voldemort was not responsible.

    The rest of Wizarding Britain is too busy tearing down their Wizarding Savior via the press to be much concerned, at least until certain Slytherin allies decide that enough is fucking well enough.

    Salizar or deslizarse......and out of a portrait comes the living past to help fix the present....and the good guys live :)
