Stuck in a magical purgatory, Lily and James Potter watch their only son grow up through the shadowveil, a magical veil through which they can view the living world, but no living person is aware of their presence. In anguish, the Potters wait in the wings until Harry needs them, and their purpose is fulfilled. 


This story follows canon, and occurs parallel to the original books timeline, simply from the perspective of Lily and James on "the other side."
