Mass Effect: No-One Left Behind

(no subject)

Title: Blessed are the Curious
Chapter: Two: In which Remus begins his tale, a bit of the past comes to light, Hermione makes fun of Ron, Ron makes fun of Hermione, and the picture-taker's name is revealed.
Rating: Teen for cursing.
Genre: Action-Adventure, AU, later romance, past-present, Sevitus, friendship
Summary: Alternate Universe. Harry Evan's mother died for him on Hallowe'en night, and he was left to the hands of the Dursleys. During his third year, he enlists his two best friends, Ron and Hermione, to help him search for information about his mother and the identity of his father. A photograph points the Trio towards Lily's two best friends during Hogwarts, Remus Lupin and surprisingly, Severus Snape, and starts them on the adventure of a lifetime.
Main characters: Trio, Remus, Lily, Snape, Sirius, James, later Cedric Diggory, Luna Lovegood, and Daphne Greengrass.
Disclaimer: I own nothing by a pack of cigarettes and a vivid imagination.
Author's Notes/Warning: Yes, James Potter is not Harry's father. As a quick catch-up, here are the following major deviations from canon:
1. Lily's two best friends.
2. The situation with Snape that leads to the events in HBP have not occurred.
3. James and Sirius are part of the story, but Sirius (nor James) are not Harry's godfather, and they were not close with Remus. This also means the Firebolt situation with Sirius does not occur, and Sirius is not an escaped convict. Both are still very much alive.
4. Harry does get permission to go to Hogsmeade.
The events of the first two books (besides the obvious James isn't Harry's father) does occur. Harry wanted to see his mother in PS, and so that's all he sees in the Mirror. Un'beta'd.

'Curiousity leads us to many things, Miss Granger. Danger, death, misfortune. But it can also lead us to the truth, and I believe Professor Dumbledore would have my thumbs pinned to his desk if I led you to anything but that.'

Is it true that there's a place in the library where the books scream?
