Oh my goodness, Sarah. Despite the fact that I'm sure this plot has been done a million times over, you somehow still manage to make it yours. I love every detail about this, how things would have been different if it was Neville instead of Harry. I love that Sirius is there, with his wife, and he came to see Harry off even though his own child was too young to attend.

It breaks my heart that Remus is the one that betrayed the Longbottoms, though. I never saw that coming. But those details that you include - like Lestrange and Snape being put into Azkaban by James and Sirius - it makes this seem so real, like it could've happened this way and no one would've known any different.

Neville's embarrassment and desperate need to just be normal makes me want to give him a big ol' hug. Poor kid must've had a rough upbringing if his gran didn't want other kids around. That's no life for a child, especially one who's so different as it is. I love how Harry turned out - rich, spoiled, and popular, and that he gawked at Neville every time his family visited.

Everything is just so incredibly well-written. You have such a fabulous talent. I hope you continue writing forever. :)

Author's Response: Baww Missy. Thank you for this lovely review!

In my little head canon in this small AU universe, it was still Peter's fault, except this time Remus took the fall for it. Since Remus isn't an Animagus, it would be harder for him to escape Azkaban...which is a depressing thought. It's definitely better that Sirius went instead of Remus; their dispositions are different and I don't think Remus would have lasted too long in prison.

Harry's characterization was inspired by Dumbledore mentioning once that his being raised by the Dursleys made it so that he didn't turn into a pampered little prince. All things considered, I like him better because of all the bad things that happened to him (that seems so horrible to say D:)

Thank you, again, for reading!
