    Summary

    Harry Potter hated his fame, hated the way everyone compared him to his parents – who he never got a chance to meet. Adults saw his parents in his hair or his eyes, whilst his ‘friends’ saw a celebrity first and a person second. He just wanted to be a normal pre-teen.
    Who would have thought the combined powers of the Mirror of Erised – a device that mirrored your greatest desire – and the Philosopher’s Stone – an artifact to give one immortal life – would team up to offer him a new start?
    Finding himself in a world not his own (repairing itself from a recent alien invasion of all things) Harry must survive the horrors of puberty, learn a whole different kind of magic, deal with sentient technology, oh, and maybe save the universe.

    Timeline: Harry from 11->14, The Avengers through to Age of Ultron.

    “Or I could fake my death-“

    “Really?”

    “I could become a hermit, living in a remote English village.”

    “Really?”

    “I’d adopt cats and just, make candles or something.”

    “Kid, you’ll have to go to school...it’s kind of the law.”

    Summary

    Harry can't say he was exactly thrilled about being thrust into a new world and leaving everything behind, but slowly, sometimes quite so, he carves out his place and makes a new life for himself. That said life somehow includes his long-lost godfather, a team of superheroes, a Norse god for a best friend, and a magical shop that caters to Muggles was not what he was expecting. That he ends up falling in love and getting a new family out of it was even less expected.

    He thinks it all might end up being worth it.

    “It’s in ruins,” Loki states, just as Harry says cheerfully, “I can work with this.”

    They both look at each other — Loki with the look of someone forced to deal with a person whose two rational brain cells have gone on vacation; Harry with what he expects is a ‘go get them’ smile.

    Will they ever find each other? What will they have to go through before they can find their other half?

    Rhodey nodded along like he knew exactly what they were talking about, which Tony knew he didn't because astrophysics simply wasn't his field of study. "That's what I'm talking about. Implosion cancels out the explosions, supernova and black hole at the same time, and matter remains constant."

    Bruce peered at him over the rim of his glasses. "Are you just quoting Dr. Who?"

    "Yes." Rhodey admitted with a shrug. "That's where I get all of my space science."
