Disclaimer: This is a multi-chapter story, detailing the events of Harry's Seventh year at Hogwarts in an alternate universe wherein events happened much differently, diverging from Canon after "Order of the Phoenix." This tale was written and first published online at Phoenixsong.net just before book six, “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince”, was released. Everything but the plot and a character or two are J. K. Rowling's, and this story never was, is not, and never will be intended to infringe on any copyrights, trademarks, or other legal declarations of ownership held by anyone anywhere, being written merely for the amusement of those who just knew that Harry and Ginny were going to wind up together!
This is the first book of a trilogy, chronicling an AU version of Harry's 6th and 7th years at Hogwarts and a few years beyond.
The second book in this three-book collection. "Harry Potter and the Philtre of Promise", was the first written, originally published as chapters at www.phoenixsong.net, where it is still available in its original form, culminating with a release of the epilog on July 15th, 2005, the day before Ms. Rowling's sixth book, "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" was released. I was pleasantly surprised that I had unwittingly anticipated and duplicated several plot points.
This book, the first book in this series, "Harry Potter and the Rampage of Ages", was then started, to explain several points revealed but not explained in "Philtre of Promise", as well as to introduce plot points critical to the whole trilogy -- and to explain a few items that are not true to canon. The first sixteen chapters were published in fairly rapid order, but a series of debilitating strokes has delayed my continuation of the story until this time -- I am editing these chapters to correct a few mistakes, explain better some events, and to make the whole cohesive.
The third book, "Harry Potter and the Legacy of Evil", had been plotted out for writing when the strokes occurred, but most of those notes, along with the notes for the final chapters of the first book, were lost when a power surge fried the hard drive they were stored on. It has taken me far too many years to reconstruct those notes to complete this trilogy, working at recreating the salient plot points that were needed as I slowly recovered from the stroke. It is my fervent wish that my efforts will prove to be worthwhile, and that you, the readers, will enjoy this foray into my version of the world so beautifully created by J K Rowling.
Please note -- this collection is fan fiction, with everything but the plot and a few characters based on J K Rowling's work, and never was, is not, and never will be intended to infringe on any copyrights, trademarks, or other legal declarations of ownership held by anyone anywhere. These stories were written for the amusement of myself and other fans of the Harry Potter series as FAN FICTION, and I thank Ms. Rowling for allowing fans of the series such as myself to play in her created universe.
