Chapter 1: The Life-Changing Prophesy
Monday 2nd November, 1981, 0015,
Headmaster’s Office, Hogwarts
Perfect. Tragic, yes, but perfect.
It was informative. And information is knowledge and knowledge is power. And power is everything.
Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore was pleased, very much so. He’d been forever thankful for the interview he had with Sybil Trelawney, for it gave him something to do. Something to use, to manipulate, to bend the Fates to do his will. To use Neville Ambrose Longbottom and Harry James Potter to fulfil the prophesy that was obviously outlined for them; being born mere minutes apart, separated by midnight at the end of July.
For the next year Albus fought Death Eaters, once again being portrayed to the Wizarding World as a Leader of the Light. He played his part well as he gained the trust of many powerful and influential people, including the Potters and Longbottoms. Albus presented the two aforementioned boys mirrors that he strategically attached to the walls of their rooms.
These mirrors, of course, were not ordinary mirrors. They connected with a set of his own, which would act like a vision-box… velly-tision… whatever it was. Like the box that Muggles sit in front of as a form of entertainment.
His trusty spy, Severus Snape, informed him of Pettigrew’s Death Eater initiation. So, naturally, for the prophesy to be set into motion, Albus disillusioned himself and apparated to the Potters’ house, where they were accompanied with Sirius Black, conversing on the topic of Secret Keeping. Albus cast a mild compulsion charm to Sirius, whom, under the charm’s effects, convinced the couple before him to change the Secret Keeper to Peter Pettigrew, as he’d be the less likely choice and, therefore, most likely to be ignored by the Death Eaters. After the charm was cast on Pettigrew, he immediately betrayed the Potters.
A month later, Riddle attacked. Albus watched the screen before him as different coloured lights danced along the wall, accompanied by the yells of different spells being cast. By the time James was murdered and Lily shut the door of baby Harry’s room, Albus had a big bowl of popcorn which he was eating by the handful, anticipating the tragic scenes about to unfold.
The door blasted open, Riddle demanded Lily to stand aside, she pleaded to spare her son in exchange for her life, so Riddle voiced his demands once again, only to be met by defiance. Albus watched the conflict and Riddle’s preferred resolution - killing.
Then the impossible happened. A killing curse - cast by Lord Voldemort, no less - has rebounded and hit the self-styled Dark Lord, killing him. Needless to say, Albus was absolutely delighted - he had found the Chosen One that the Fates had hand-picked.
Then he started the clean up part of the plan. After he apparated to the Potters’ house, he cast a strong and complicated glamour charm, making it seem as though the house is on fire. After returning to Hogwarts, he ordered Hagrid to retrieve the any injured Potters to be looked after by the school healer, telling him that there was an attack on the Potters’ house. Of course, Hagrid left immediately.
Albus then left to set up the meeting between Pettigrew and Black, allowing the traitor to escape, Black to be captured by the Aurors, and Harry Potter’s life under Albus’ full control.
After Poppy checked up on Harry’s wellbeing, he took Harry and placed multiple binds on the boy’s magical core, leaving him with merely a tenth of his full magical power free for the boy to use. He then left the Potter boy at the Number Four Privet Drive, Little Whinging, Surrey the night after, leaving him with a thin blanket, a mild warming charm and a letter for the Dursleys, laced with severe compulsion charms keyed to the Dursleys to hate the boy.
The one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord approaches… born to those who have thrice defied him, born as the seventh month dies… and the Dark Lord will mark him as a equal, but he will have power the Dark Lord knows not… 4 girls and 3 boys will help him conquer the Dark Lord… the eldest girl will be his soul mate... and either must die at the hand of the other for neither can live while the other survives… the one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord will be born as the seventh month dies…
The prophesy constantly ran through the aged man’s head, but he knew, Harry would not know of his fate ‘till the timing was perfect.
Yes, Albus was pleased.
