Author’s Note: I wrote this originally when I was nineteen to twenty-five and while it has been heavily edited, plot updated to reflect later books in the series — the over the top romantic plot was left largely in place because I’m rather amused by how sappy I was.
Rescued from his Muggle relatives before the age of five, Harry Potter was raised abroad by his adoptive father, Lord Sirius Black. At sixteen, he returns to Britain to attend Hogwarts for his NEWTS and to meet the young witch who he’s known to be his soulmate since he was eight years old.
Hermione finds the very foundations of her beliefs rocked when she comes face to face with her Fate in the form of Harry James Potter, the current Earl of Gryffindor. She’s drawn to his magical power and intelligence even as people around them try to interfere. She falls blindly into a relationship she’s emotionally ill-prepared for in the midst of giving up her last connection to the Muggle world and accepting an offer to be adopted by Minerva McGonagall.
A fated love awaits them both — if they are brave enough to let magic lead the way.
