    Summary

    Summer, 1999. Harry comes home with news. Quite a lot of news.

    Harry takes a deep breath.
    “I'm quitting the Aurors,” he starts with, which is followed by a moment of stunned silence.
    “What?” Sirius says.
    “All right," Remus says. “Do you know what else you want to do? Did you think about it?”
    Harry blushes, the way James used to—a rosy glow lighting up his brown skin—and says, “I wanted to—that is, I thought I might be a teacher.”
    Remus, quite suddenly, seems to have something in his eye. "Oh."
    “What?” Sirius says.
    “And uh—there's more. I was thinking I might like to. That is. I want to become an Animagus.”

    Summary

    Richard John Grayson watches frozen as his parents fall, and in return everything changes.

    Dick isn't adopted by the billionaire Bruce Wayne, no, instead he's taken in by his grandfather William Cobb. Or rather stolen away, to be broken down and twisted beyond repair. But Cobb miscalculates, and underestimating a child was never a good idea.
    For Dick has his own goals, striking his grandfather down, attaining his freedom, then dismantling the rest of the Court of Owls.

    This is the story of how Dick builds a life for himself with bloody hands, refusing to follow any orders but his own. Even if that puts him on the radar of not only the Light but Batman and the Young Justice team.

    To him it doesn't matter, all that matters is he's a Grayson, and Grayson's are meant to fly.

    Summary

    Harry did not know this and would not know this until Mrs. Granger mentioned it casually over a Christmas dinner years and years later-- but she and Mr. Granger reported the Dursleys for child abuse and neglect, over and over.

    The reports got lost-- minds scrubbed down, papers vanished-- but they kept calling in reports. They considered kidnapping. They couldn't imagine why the wizarding world might want to keep their chosen one somewhere so toxic, why they might want to keep this underfed child and his messy hair with those people.

    "My mother left me a blood protection spell," said Harry, whose scar had not ached in years. He poked at his mashed potatoes under the focused attention of Mrs. Granger's stern little forehead wrinkle. "I had to live with family, blood family."

    "Then they should have made them treat you right," Mrs. Granger said, as though it was that simple.

    Mr. Granger gave Harry another helping of peas.
