It must be why he worries about them more than the rest of the Fellowship, in my opinion.
Pft! I’m so not crying myself while making this gifset ;w; Insomnia antics I tell you
WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU
tHIS IS NOT OKAY
literally teary eyed. That is NOT OKAY.
Harry Potter/Inception crossover [inspired by x]
no but what if it was the story where Voldemort’s body wasn’t destroyed when he tried to kill Harry and he ended up in like a coma state or something but he couldn’t die because he had one more horcrux. they keep him in a ward connected to the ministry for “security” reasons (really to examine him, figure out what kind of magic he’s done)
Harry grows up with the Dursleys but goes to Hogwarts, only sans Voldemort’s constant interference (though he does have to deal with the odd old death eater trying to finish him off, which if they only knew, oh, the irony), makes his friends, etc, but… as he goes through puberty he starts getting these flashes of visions. faces bent over his, wands out, a bright glow at the ceiling. and sometimes he starts living these bizarre dreams that just play out while he’s sitting in class or walking around or once, horribly, on the quidditch pitch. (he manages to catch the snitch anyway, of course.) it’s after that Hermione is finally able to convince him to go to Dumbledore. who has Snape begin to teach him occlumency.
that goes as well as it ever did, but without Voldemort’s return to take Snape’s attention, the lessons continue and despite how much of a total douche Snape is, Harry begins to learn something. First it’s just the occlumency, and then the unvoiced spells — and after that, customising his mind’s defenses, hiding them under mundane thoughts, building traps for unwelcome observers that have them wandering in circles through the tunnels of Hogwarts or the streets around Privet Drive. Harry’s not bad at this part, but of course he tells Ron and Hermione about it, and Hermione really catches onto that bit. Constructing mindloops that fit seamlessly together, painstakingly building hidden traps, she is all over that.
after graduation, Dumbledore calls Harry to his office once more and tells him (some of) the truth of the matter. That Voldemort still lives, somewhere in the Ministry. That Harry of all people has the necessary connection to him, to access his mind, to bypass his defenses, to find out what it is that he might still hold in his memory that the Ministry so wants — and why he still lives even after all this time.
So Harry puts together a team…
I would read the HELL out of this AU.
I’m going to need someone to write this AU for me for christmas.
I KNOW THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE PRETTY AND COOL BUT I CAN’T STOP LAUGHING BECAUSE IT LOOKS LIKE IT’S FLYING UP AND THEN IT DECIDES IT GOING TOO FAR AND TRIES TO TURN AROUND AND IT KEEPS FLOATING AWAY AND ITS SAYING ‘SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT’
