Author’s Note: Please be aware that the casting section might contain what you would consider spoilers as there is a non-canon character that makes a surprise appearance in the first five chapters of the story. I’d recommend waiting until you’re ready to read the sixth chapter before checking out the casting page if you want to be spoiler free.

I did some casting while I was writing. It’s not everyone in the story but I thought you might like to see what I envisioned for the characters as I wrote.  Special thanks to Jilly James who helped with the pictures of James and Lily to make their eyes match the characters 😉

  1. This was totally worth the wait. Thank you for this story.

  2. Wow! I completely love your cast!

  3. I really don’t know what to say. You are amazing. I am in love with your imagination.
    I need to get into some of the other fandoms you write just so I can read your other fanfictions. I truly do enjoy your work.

    I thank J.K. Rowling for her universe but I swear it’s authors like you that have made it. Not only are you excellent at writing you really are great at not having so many plot holes that the original has.

    Please excuse me for my verbal diarrhea, I get so excited for a great story.

    • I transcend individual fandoms (flicks hair).

      Seriously, though, I write from an extremely “alternate universe” sort of place nearly all the time so you can read most of my other fan fiction as if it were original. Maybe you could read a wiki entry or two but not much more than that. And, of course, if you have questions about canon elements we can hook you up with links.

  4. Perfect casting, I love that you do that, it gives this extra layer of richness to the story to have that visual 🙂

  5. This is an amazing story and I love it. The relationship between James and Lily is a delight, their impact on each other, their friends, their whole society… excellent. Love to hate your Dumbledore. The privy council scenes were a lot of fun, the battle was awesome and nerve-wracking, and I adore Minerva McGonagall.
    Thank you so much for your story!

  6. I’m glad that you took the time away from Harry Potter, this return story was worth the wait. Excellent cast choices, though I still prefer Gary Oldman for Sirius Black. Just personal preference there.

    Still was a wonderful story and I look forward to more.

  7. Oh my god! The picture you have used to cast Daniel radcliffe as harry potter is super cute…

  8. OMG I love your take on ” What if the Potters left Britain before…” Also love the cast you put together and now I’m never going to be able to see other actors as most of these characters, lol. I also really like how you’ve written a Harry who grew up with both parents who have also been affected by the war and living in hiding since Hogwarts. I’m still deciding if I’m excited to see more Harry Potter from you or if I’m sad that it means there is more competition for your attention in the other fandoms you write. Of course it always makes my week when I find new posts from you no matter the fandom 🙂
