Chapter Text

' Competition is always a good thing. It forces us to do our best. A monopoly renders people complacent and satisfied with mediocrity.'

Harry Potter: The Chronicles of Power

Hadrian James 'Harry' Potter, the forgotten twin brother of Alexander Michael 'Alex' Potter, the world famous 'Boy-Who-Lived', was sent away from the wizarding world as a young boy. Thought to be a squib, incapable of casting magic, he was removed completely from the Wizarding World by his parents, who were concerned for his continued survival. While the Dark Lord may have been vanquished, even his most loyal supporters continued to live among them.

Entrusted to the care of his only other living blood relatives, the Dursley Family of Number 4 Privet Drive, Little Whinging, Surrey; he grew up treated with nothing but a mixture of hatred at his presence, and apathy for his accomplishments, right up until the day he receives a letter from a place called Hogwarts.

Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

It is there that our story truly begins, as an eleven-year-old boy realises that he is, in fact, not strange, not a 'freak', nor is he even an orphan; but he is a wizard, and a potentially powerful one at that.

The Potters are simply desperate to now bring their broken family back together, but abandoned and mistreated children don't suddenly become well-adjusted members of society once they are able to move away from their abusers, nor are they particularly prone to bouts of forgiveness.

Harry soon learns though, that in the Magical World, and especially at Hogwarts, things are very really what they seem.

Book One

Harry Potter & the Whispers of Desire

When a trip the zoo ends with him having a rather enlightening conversation with a snake, Hadrian Potter realises that the Dursleys haven't been truthful with him, nor in fact, have they been wrong.

He is different.

He is a wizard.

His brother Alexander - Alex to his friends - is the world-famous 'Boy-Who-Lived', the sole survivor of the Killing Curse, which rebounded off of him ten years ago. An act that won a war and decided both boys' future.

For the first time since then, both brothers will be together, attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, enjoying their shared heritage of magic, as they come to grips with house rivalries, lessons, quidditch and two parents desperate to put their family back together.

All the while, something sinister is hiding within the castle, and it has its eyes on both boys; one, a world-renowned hero, known the world-over, and the other, a prodigy in the magical arts.

Darkness lurks around the corner.

Will they be ready when it strikes?
