I just love this chapter. I love that we get to see everyone, even if they are just glimpses. And I definitely love the photographs. You write happy family life exceedingly well. It's one of my favorite things about your writing. I'm like Dumbledore, oddly loath to stop reading. I do find it ironic that Dumbledore finds nothing morally wrong with spying on people, especially after he determines that they are doing nothing wrong. But, as he says, "business as usual." Also, I'm very jealous of the Pensieve. I hate that feeling of something you can't quite remember, and he just gets his confusion solved immediately.

Cynically, I have to wonder if Dumbledore didn't request Aletha so he could keep an eye on her and figure out if she knew where Harry was. There have to be other people he trusts in the Ministry (Arthur comes to mind).

Speaking of the Ministry, I love that you work politics into this story. So many writers (myself included) would focus entirely on the plot of our characters, and only work the rest of the world in when it was necessary. That you have the Ministry changes a part of the story from the beginning is a testament to your skill. I tip my hat.

Those pictures were adorable, the ring was beautiful, Dumbledore was excellently characterised yet again, and the glimpses of everyone else who will join the Pride in the future were all sweet aside from poor Draco. *hugs little Draco close* Don't worry, precious dragonet. You'll be saved soon.

Okay, at this point, Dumbledore could probably find a way to track Aletha home, or just lift the location of their home from their minds, yet he hasn't done so. I would have guessed he would do so just so he could ward the house they are in, perhaps with a fidelius with himself as the secret keeper.

At any rate the story is pretty good so far. I had initially put off reading this in part because I was expecting something out of Marvel Comics or similar with the title "Dangerverse", yet it is obviously not that. I wonder when they will get Danger a wand, so they can teach her some useful things.

That last part was very mysterious...hmmm. Haha, anyways, when did Danger get in contact with Dumbledore??? I don't remember that!!! Again, I can't wait to continue reading.

I've always been curiuos...that trick Dumbledore does with the magical photo. Did he make it show the same scene at a different time? Or was it what was happening there at that very moment?

Because if it was the latter, that could be a very handy and secure way to communicate, which might be useful down the road...

I'm not seeing anything that lets me pin down Sirius and Letha's wedding date. Does April 19 sound good to you, or did you have a specific date in mind?

I tried looking up the date of Easter in 1982, figuring that if Danger was wishing Dumbledore a happy Easter, then her letter was sent within a couple days of Easter. Turns out Easter was Apr 11. Bit more memorable than just a Sunday. Oh well.

Something suddenly occurred to me. The story makes sense with Fudge as Minister, and it would probably get worse if you tried to change it, but Fudge wasn't Minister this far back. He was a junior member of the Dept of Magical Catastrophes on Nov 1 1981, among the first there after the street went boom, and didn't become Minister till 1990, according to the Quibbler (which is unlikely to get wrong the year of election of the Prime Minister-equivalent). Millicent Bagnold was Minister in 1981, I'm positive of that.

This really isn't worth changing, I just thought you should know.

Wonderful. :) for some reason, the last line brought tears to my eyes.

Beautiful imagery and emotions.

Now I have to 'run' with the sweeper.
Every word of yours made it worth it.

Nicely, nicely done. We have Luna, Neville, Draco, Ginny and Ron. Dobby too. Are all the players assembled yet? It looks that way.

I should know better than to begin 50-chapter stories at night. A work-night, no less.

Thanks so much for sharing this story with all the rest of us.

Ch.13 - - This is delightful. Your last sentence:

"The world turned slowly on its axis, and just as slowly, reshaped itself from what it would have been into what it would now be."

...sets the stage beautifully.

I have never been an AU fan of fiction, but I have had an interest in Alternate History, which usually make matters worse than had really happened.

But recent AU Harry Potter fics have presented ways for Harry to have not endured the Dursley years, and still turn out fine.

I guess it is natural for us to want this for our hero. And you've done it here very well. Just delightfully. The best I've read that includes James and Lily still dying.

Cheers!
