Summary: An AU-Crossover exploration into a possible evolution of the HP world to an altered redux of Final Fantasy VIII, where part of the motto is: stamp out the stupid.

Spoilers: FF VIII (and only the odd points from HBP & DH really matter)

Warnings: AU-Crossover (massive canon mangling), mild slash

Consults: FF VIII sources include (but are not limited to) a game script by Shotgunnova and video references at Blue Laguna. (You can obtain the entire canon story in video from there, under Disc 0. The Disc 1-4 videos are CG cutscenes only.) Certain concepts are borrowed from other places, one of which might be considered FF VII.

Disclaimer: This story is primarily based on characters and situations created and owned by Square-Enix, but also by J. K. Rowling, various publishers including but not limited to Bloomsbury Books, Scholastic Books, and Raincoast Books, and Warner Bros. No money is being made and no copyright or trademark infringement is intended.

Notes: The majority of this is set within the world of FF VIII, not HP, with Harry being the only character who exists in that time frame due to ‘mysterious’ circumstances. In fact, we spend almost no time whatsoever in Potterverse. Game canon is gleefully mangled to allow for the inclusion of Harry with a massively heavy dose of ‘truth lost in the mists of time’. That sort of thing.

Like the summary says, this is a redux, so expect to be dragged through the full story, minus any parts I’d rather spork myself than recap (or any parts where Squall is not there, because this is all from his POV). Frankly, I expect parts of it to be really, really boring, simply because there are some staggeringly boring parts to this game. And frankly, sometimes it really shows that I couldn’t bring myself to give a flying fig. So, feel free to get tetchy over that, but I did warn you.

Psssst! RPG Speech Disorder abounds! Aaaaaahhh!
