Disclaimer: This story is based on characters and situations created and owned by J. K. Rowling, various publishers including but not limited to Bloomsbury Books, Scholastic Books and Raincoast Books, and Warner Bros., Inc. No money is being made and no copyright or trademark infringement is intended. (Also applies to Rand and Robyn Miller, Hyperion, Ubisoft, and anyone else involved with the Myst continuum, Piers Anonthy, whoever wrote Death Note, etc.)

Attributions: Rather than having these in chapter notes, I’ll just compile them here, so most chapters won’t have notes. Quite frankly, starting author’s notes piss me the fuck off in most stories these days, so I’m trying to avoid them in other chapters as much as possible.

Shout-outs to Xanth, Hunger Games (as the most recent incarnation of an ancient theme), a movie I won’t name because doing so might somehow inexplicably give away the reference, and appropriation of a (modified) boss creature from Silent Hill. As a shout-out to She Who Cannot Be Turned’s fabulous HP/SPN crossover Let’s Party ’til the World Ends, I am using the name Derek (with permission). Some passages (many of which are appropriately modified) pulled from Philosopher’s Stone, Prisoner of Azkaban, Goblet of Fire.

Batsutousai and I got very giggly one evening talking about certain parts of this fic, so... and she’s been awesome and pointed out errors.

Foreward: As some of you know, Pyrite was originally released as a oneshot. It finally came to me after reading the first few chapters of Batsutousai’s Xerosis what I could do with it. Now, I did speak to Bats and she was fine with me using her fic as an inspirational source, so I felt comfortable playing with this idea. (I didn’t even dare read that in full until I was well into this so I didn’t actually take more from it than the initial concept, some of its ideas, and some of those don’t even come into play for a good long time.)

And hey, I’m writing this because it amuses me, not because I’m trying to produce some deep, meaningful story. I have my guilty pleasures, too, and I’m not ashamed to dip my toes into the muddy waters of barely justifiable mayhem. So if you feel tempted to scold me for me doing what I just said I was going to do, I preemptively laugh in your face.

That being said, the text used here from Pyrite has been modified to better fit the current use I have for it (and a bit of canon, too) and the original version will remain, as is, as a oneshot. And to keep things from being too confusing, I used the chemical formula for pyrite as the name of this fic. I said in the “summary” for my Oneshots collection that “nothing in here will be linked to an existing story at this site”, but this was too good to pass up as an excuse for Harry to start over again (and for what I used from Deception).

Don’t be getting any ideas about Harry being perfect or having perfect reasoning. As I keep adding more to this story I see so many fallacies in “his” thinking coming out, or instances where he’s honestly afraid to know the truth, whether he admits it or not. But then, people do like to deceive themselves, yeah? There’s cherry picking going on, in a sense, so in some ways one could easily accuse this Harry of a lot of things one could accuse Dumbledore of. On the other hand, Harry does recognize that he’s a hypocrite, so.... yeah, whatever.

If you happen to be fond of people like Ron, Ginny, Hermione, Sirius, Remus, Dumbledore, and Molly... well, go elsewhere, please.

24052014—Finally. It took me a long god damn time to write this story, from February of 2011 to May of 2015, and almost a year of that was because my father died and I had no fucks to give about much of anything. I finally got sick to death of it sitting there, languishing on my hard drive, and figured out some kind of an ending. There wasn’t anything else I wanted to write that wasn’t of a crossover nature better suited to add-on chapters or a Snapshots file for those same crossovers (you’ll understand way at the end what I mean). I have already written these two into a different story entirely as a guest appearance (and heaven only knows how long it will take me to finish that story). You all may find the ending a bit abrupt or rushed, but I want this story out and posted, so there you go. I was going to wait until Saturday to start posting, but what the hell.

11062015—I realized, well after the fact, that I mucked something up regarding Uru. The building that comes up I say is K’veer, but really, what I was thinking of was the interior of K’veer and the exterior of Katha.
