This fic starts after Harry’s first year. The starting event is the successful appliance of physical violence against Harry by Vernon, almost killing him. He is then rescued by an ancient Brotherhood and nursed back to strength. While the basic events are the same Harry manages to achieve the goals more easily:
- Pettigrew is caught during the summer, freeing Sirius
- Riddle is defeated more easily, though with a greater trauma to Ginny, who repeats her first year and is sorted into Ravenclaw
- Courch Jr. escapes prematurely and helps Voldemort embody himself a year earlier
- Voldemort is killed at the end of the Triwizard turnament
On the side line there are other changes. Harry and Hermione come together and include Luna. Pansy strikes Hermione with a poisoned dagger almost killing her. As the Brotherhood all have Horocruxes, Harry and Hermione join them.
