OH MAN ARE YOU IN FOR A TREAT
on mobile rn, so not a link but copypaste this url and begin reading my favorite ever hp fic: http://archiveofourown.org/tags/Stealing%20Harry
basic premise is as follows: sirius never goes to azkaban, opens a bookstore with remus in little whinging so they can keep an eye on harry but not intervene in his life. obviously this changes, and the two of them start raising harry at age eight. the first fic (stealing harry) is finished, as are the stories about Harry’s first two years at hogwarts. the third one is unfinished, and the other books were never started, but there are other, shorter fics and a long summary of what the rest of the story would have entailed to help with the pain.
good luck, and if you like it feel free to yell at me about it omg I love it so goddamn much.
