James, Sirius and Harry were now at the Potter Manor. With them, was Remus Lupin. They had gotten hold of Remus and filled him in.

"I can't believe Professor Dumbledore would do that," said Remus who was shocked.

"But Moony, I put your name as the 2nd guardian of Harry and my assets after Sirius. Shouldn't you have gotten guardianship of my assets and Harry?" asked James.

"But the legal document that Dumbledore produced at court showed that you left him as the guardian," said Remus.

"What? I did no such thing. I should have known better than to leave the original document with Dumbledore. I bet he got rid of it and forged a new one," said James, hotly.

"I still asked Professor Dumbledore for Harry's custody, especially when I found out he was placed at the Dursleys, but Dumbledore insisted it was for Harry's protection. Something about wards involving Lily's blood and Harry's need to be placed with her blood. He also said that if I tried to legally question Harry's placement, he would use the fact that I was a werewolf against me. He never even let me see Harry all these years. He kept making excuses to prevent me," said Remus.

James and Sirius were red with anger.

"But Harry, why didn't you reply any of my letters? I couldn't write to you before you entered Hogwarts, but I did write to you several times, while you were at Hogwarts," asked Remus.

"But I never received any letters from you, Uncle Remus," said Harry, confused.

"I bet that's also that meddlesome old man's doing," said Sirius.

"More than Dumbledore, I'd like to get my hands on that sneaky worm rat," said James, with full fury.

They all agreed and the 3 Marauders swore Peter Pettigrew would have hell to pay when they got hold of him.

"Harry, I'd like to know exactly what went on in your life this past 12 years. If you're ready to talk, that is," said James.

Harry filled James, Sirius and Remus in on his life with The Dursleys and his first 2 years at Hogwarts. After he finished, the 3 Marauders didn't know who they felt like pounding and hexing more; Dumbledore, The Dursleys or Severus Snape. They were amazed at how Harry could recount the horrible events in his life without crying.

Before either of them could react, Dumbledore arrived through the Potter's Floo Network to be greeted by 4 very nasty glares. 2 glares in particular, from James and Sirius looked about ready to kill him. After Dumbledore, another face they all hated stepped out of the Floo Network, Severus Snape.

"Hello Professor," James and Sirius said sarcastically through gritted teeth. It took all their self-control to refrain themselves from attacking Dumbledore.

"Now, now, James and Sirius. I understand that you would both be furious. But I had to do it for Harry's safety. You were against sending Harry to the Dursleys. I had to put you in prison to carry out my protection plan for Harry. I knew I wouldn't be able to convince you to send Harry to the Dursleys," Dumbledore tried to explain.

"Darn right I would never have agreed to give Harry to those dreadful people," said James.

"James, you have to understand. It is essential that Harry returns to The Dursleys," said Dumbledore.

James and Sirius had to be held back by Harry and Remus as they lunged at Dumbledore.

Please review! I will definitely improve anything that is unsatisfactory to reviewers.


Would it be completely illogical if I wrote in a twin sister for Harry, who grew up with James' cousin and attended Ilvermony? She's not part of my plot yet, but if I do add her, I have a side plot of her transferring to Hogwarts and changing Draco Malfoy to be a better person.
