    Accio Stone

    Accio Stone by KrisLaughs

    Summary: This is what might happen if Lily and James Potter had survived Voldemort’s final attack, if Harry grew up in a close-knit family far away from the wizarding world, if it was Harry’s eleventh birthday and there was a whisper of trouble in the air… Oneshot, AU, 8,800 Words.

    Why You Should Care: This is an AU about what possible turn of events might have left the Potter family alive and whole instead of dead and Harry orphaned. The strength in this fic lies not necessarily in the writing (which is still quite well done) but rather the brilliance and originality in which Kris justifies her AU world, and the great sacrifice Lily makes for her family without having to die. When you figure it out, you will understand what I mean.

    Why You Might Not Care: There’s a happy ending here, and I really feel a little like that is a cheat. I would have preferred Lily’s choice had more staying power, and I think it would have made this story stronger. As is, it is good — but there is real potential here for an astounding AU world that means as much as JKR’s original.

      I could feel myself start to smile when Lily came back to the real world. It was such a sweet moment, especially with Harry saying that it just “felt right.”

      And the last paragraph was just perfect…

      “And then… they flew away.”

      Great and awesome and everything in between and beyond. Thank you!
