    Summary

    Harry just wants to have a quiet life and get along with everyone. He wants to be normal, and accepted. Being “normal” for the Dursleys yielded great results in improving his standard of living, and as he heads off to Hogwarts he still retains that impulse to keep his head down and blend in. Of course, life isn’t as simple as that, and Harry is a magnet for trouble. And what does "normal" really mean, anyway? The pure-bloods in his group of friends think he should learn more about their culture and religion if he wants to fit in.

    Summary

    Summary

    Merlin wasn't entirely certain that staying with the Order of the Phoenix—the majority of whom didn't know him—was his best idea ever, but it definitely beat being out of touch with the rest of the magical world for the summer. A little push here and a little nudge there, and he'd managed to get Sirius to invite him, Arthur, and Draco to stay with the rest of the Order.

    Or, Merlin was quite honestly exhausted from dealing with the so-called Dark Lord, but he still had to pace himself lest he throw the entire magical world out of balance. Even so, he was struggling with not showing up this pink lady from the Ministry of Magic. Was this seriously who the ministry deemed an acceptable teacher? She wasn't even teaching the students at all!

    Edit: extremely sporadic updates, somewhat on hiatus.

    Summary

    Before his third year of Hogwarts has even begun, Harry faces three whole weeks of unsupervised time in Diagon Alley. In that time he takes a trip to Gringotts - and that changes everything.

    Burdened with the knowledge that Dumbledore has been blocking his family magic, and manipulating far more than he ever thought possible, Harry doesn't know who he can trust; but he knows he can't keep going that way. There's a whole world of lore and politics and history to catch up on, and the more he learns, the more Harry realises his true place in the world, and how much is being kept hidden from him. All the while, Dumbledore's twinkling eyes are constantly watching, and Harry can't let on how much he knows.

    With help from unexpected places, Harry starts on a journey to end the war, and reshape the wizarding world. With how much he looks like James Potter, people have forgotten one important thing about him - he is Lily Evans' son, and she was one hell of a witch.
