The Dark Lord had a choice once. The pureblood or the half-blood? He decided who would be The Chosen One. But what if he had chosen the other? What if he picked the pureblood?
On October 31, 1981, it was the Longbottoms that the darkest wizard of all time found hidden away in a sleepy little town. Frank and Alice knew what Voldemort was coming for that night, and gave their lives to protect their son. Alice’s sacrifice protected her son and the Dark Lord ultimately fell.
Voldemort fled the little town and hid himself away from the rest of the world in one of the far corner of the earth. Most of the wizarding world believed him to finally be dead. There was no word of the Dark Lord. The word came out of darkness and a slight peace settled. But in this peace, there were some who were not convinced the Dark Lord was gone. They believed he was out there somewhere barely surviving.
The baby, named Neville, survived the encounter with the Dark Lord and was taken to his grandmother’s house to be raised. And the story has changed. Neville Longbottom is the Boy Who Lived. And as he starts his fifth year, he knows he’ll have to face He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named one day.
