    Summary

    When Regulus is eleven, he meets Harry Potter, the only recently turned up, distant cousin of James Potter. The first surprise is that, despite being a Potter, he's sorted into Slytherin. The second surprise is that he manages to convince Regulus to prank Sirius for being an ass about his sorting. The third is that he turns out to be an amazing friend.

    The surprises don't end there—quite the opposite, really. The biggest might just be that Harry refuses to give up on him, and how it changes everything. His worldview, the relationship to his brother; his whole future.

    Scratch that, it's the Master of Death-thing. It's definitely the Master of Death-thing.

    In the end, though, Regulus finds he's rather fond of surprises.

    Summary

    The Storyteller is bored with the way Harry Potter's story played out. She decides to try a different scenario: sending a disillusioned, sad, hopeless, about to become a Death Eater Regulus Black back in time to his first train ride to Hogwarts. Deciding to take advantage of this unexpected second chance, Regulus decides to live for himself instead of for parents that don't love him. In doing so, he finds himself embroiled in adventures he couldn't have possibly imagined, armed only with cryptic warnings about what might happen in the future. He will perform magic he didn't know he was capable of, learn the secrets of powerful men, and fight in a war even more destructive and violent than the first time around.

    All the while, Regulus struggles with who he is and what he's meant to be: little brother, trusted friend, warrior, leader. Each battle leaves scars, and Regulus wonders if, by the time everything's over, there will be enough of him left for anyone to love, assuming, of course, that he makes it out alive at all.
