**** Also, remember that theory of Discord being Star Swirl, and how Discord is a) personified chaos and b) likes to make weird things happen by snapping his fingers?

* Harry being killed without interference ín any prophecy wouldn't be likely, because that would mean the rest of the prophecies wouldn't apply, which would likely mean that they wouldn't have been told prior to said interference, which contradicts Dumbledore's stated series of events. The implied reason seems to be that it was to prevent harry from bringing any pets to Hogwarts (like canon!Harry brought Hedwig). The exact series of events in universes where Harry brought a pet is difficult to predict, but it would have apparently been a ButterflyOfDoom that led to humanity going extinct.

[[WMG: Voldemort wasn't an animagus ]]
Voldemort wasn't an animagus once he inhabited his new body, he no longer had the broomstick enchantment or the dark mark.

The reason Harry had a pet rock in the first place was a sort of dare after an argument with his parents. He wanted to have a pet, but Michael and Petunia, understandably, didn't believe ''he'' could take good care of a pet. The argument got louder and louder and eventually they yelled that Harry couldn't even take care of a rock if he tried. Harry, being Harry, ''tried'', and got his parents to swear to give him a pet if after a given period of time, his pet rock was still unharmed. Dumbledore had to smash it so that Harry would lose his bet and never get any pet, because a prophecy that Harry would get killed by his pet dog or something.

** Dementors are given cloaks because they are painful to look upon. Also, naked corpses floating around would be distracting.

[[spoiler: "I wanted it to be an anagram of my name, but that would only have worked if I'd conveniently been given the middle name of 'Marvolo', and then it would have been a stretch. Our actual middle name is Morfin, if you're curious. But I digress."]]

*** [[spoiler: Sirius did do it. In HPMOR, Pettigrew wasn't an animagus but a metamorphmagus. Sirius confunded Pettigrew into thinking he was Sirius. This lasted long enough for him to get thrown into Azkaban, where he lost his magic and ability to morph back into his own shape. The guards never believed him when he said, "I'm not Sirius!"]]
