Summary: Dumbledore is gone, or is he? Harry feels the weight of the world rests on his shoulders, but he is soon to learn that his brooding nature and desire to face his fate alone may be his greatest weakness. It is his emotions, or rather his capacity for emotion that makes him strong, and his relationships his greatest source of strength.
When the summer begins and he faces a fortnight with the Dursleys everything he knows, or rather thinks he knows comes into question. Can he... should he do this all alone? And is he anywhere near ready?
Hogwarts is to be re-opened, the Ministry officially endorsing it as the safest possible place to be. As his birthday approaches there are monumental surprises in store for Harry. Who is he really? And what about his family, who came before his mother and father? Why is the Potter name so famous, and yet so unknown?
Encouraged not to run off to face his fate he returns to Hogwarts for his final year, but surprises abound at the school as well.
Can Harry become the wizard he needs to be to face the Dark Lord? Will he let the people he respects and love really help him? And what of help from unexpected sources; sources he might never trust?
This appears the only place where updates to this story happen, so I had to register here to say thank you for continuing your story, I had to read it from the start to refresh my memory of what of it. Good story I like it.

Author's Response: Thank you for reading my story. I love it when readers comment, so thank you. I do update this story, and I am working on additional chapters. Usually I update here first, quite frankly, because Mugglenet has the highest submission standards, and I want each chapter to be as good as it should be. I also post on Harry Potter Fanfiction, and on Fanfiction.net. I was also updating on Ginny Potter, but I think I am going to abandon that posting because submissions seem to take forever there. Anyway, I am glad you found the story and I hope you enjoy it. Please keep up reviewing, and Happy reading.
