Upon Albus Dumbledore’s death at the hand of Draco Malfoy, Aberforth Dumbledore knows he must do clean up the mess his arrogant elder brother left behind. It just took him three years to accomplish his goal. In 1999 he used means that the Ministry would never approve of, if that can even be said anymore, Aberforth traveled back in time to 1980. His original intention was to kidnap Sybil Trelawney before she could make the infamous prediction, but he was too late. So he went after his second target: Peter Pettigrew. Kidnapping, imperiusing, and then oblivating the young man was certainly the least of his crimes, but it kept him from betraying his friends’ most sacred trust and from innocent blood from being spilled. Harry Potter would never become the Chosen One.
Unfortunately, fate always finds a way in the end. Since he could not go after the Potters, Tom Riddle went after the Longbottoms. Augusta Longbottom put up a valiant fight, but on November 5, 1981 Lord Voldemort found his downfall with her grandson, Neville Longbottom. While the Wizarding World hailed the toddler as the Boy Who Lived, the remaining members of the Order of the Phoenix began the arduous task of hunting down and destroying the remaining horcruxes.
The year is now 2002 and the United Kingdom has had two decades of peace and prosperity. Neville Longbottom and his peers have attended and finished Hogwarts and are starting their careers. The World Cup is making it’s return to England. Word has it that Cornelius Fudge, Minister for Magic, is retiring to spend more time cultivating his prize-winning begonias with his wife, leaving the position without an incumbent since 1990. Purebloods, now gathered under the ‘traditionalist’ banner, sees this as their opportunity to take back the power they’ve ceded since the end of the War.
And then someone starts putting two and two together.
