A fan of sci-fi/fantasy since childhood, James B Stigma was introduced to the Harry Potter series by his wife to-be during their courtship. "Tricked" into seeing the first film (as he puts it), he soon found himself fascinated by the deeply drawn characters of the books more than he ever thought possible. Thus Harry Potter became his favorite literary hero of all time, along-side his many friends going through their amazing adventures. Now, through his fan fiction, he hopes to put a touch of his own imagination into the wonderful world he has come to love, with every possible respect to its creator, Mrs. Rowling.
"James Sirius Potter, it is the judgment of the Wizengamot that you have been found guilty. You knowingly, in possession of sound mind and body, used the Cruciatus Curse and the Killing Curse in the intentional torture and murder of one Gregory Goyle the Third."
James Potter was going to Azkaban for the rest of his natural life, and his whole family was in shambles. His wife and child have fled the country, his sister was missing, and his parents were a wreck. However, James knew that he had larger problems: his guilt was coming more and more in question.
Though he knew that James was withholding information about the circumstances of the murder of which he had been found guilty, Harry had secrets of his own; however, even he could not handle this torrent of trouble alone. Can Harry trust his darkest confidences to anyone? Even family?
How will the Potter clan stop the downward spiral into pain and disaster, and can they recover what they've lost?
