This is the really, really long author's note that I'm putting before the story. Please read it, it'll help you understand the story.
In the story Abracadabra written by me, there are several things you need to know. First off, you need to know that the characters are sort of in a world that combines attributes from both the movie and the books. Reason being: a little something for everyone. Things that are straight from J.K Rowling's mouth, however, are true to what she says. Example of this: in an on-line chat, Ms. Rowling stated that James Potter was a Chaser on the Gryffindor quidditch team. Whereas in the movie he is said to be Seeker. In this fic he will be a Chaser, because J.K said so.
There is only one exception to the above mentioned: the years of this story are different. J.K. Rowling said Harry was born on July 30, 1980. In my story he was born July 30, 1987. Therefore James, Lily, and the gang all graduated in 1981. James and Lily were 23 when Harry was born. It also means that right "now", ol' Harry is fourteen.
I have been told several times that Peter Pettigrew belongs in the story. I know this. He's in there. Come on, let's face it, as much as we all hate the guy's guts and want to toss him into a volcano- he is part of what happened in the books. The Potters did trust him with their lives. So he's in there. Don't hurt me.
New, original characters are in this story. I would appreciate everybody not using them without my permission. I own them, because they came from my own twisted mind. I don't own Harry Potter or anything about it (except for anything original in there you haven't seen before), although I wish I did. All Harry Potter things belong to J.K Rowling, and are copyrighted to a lot of companies. I won't go through those companies, because we could be here all day.
Well, that said- read on! Please enjoy the story. I'd also like feedback so I can make it better.
