A group of stories by [[Creator/AnneBWalsh Anne B. Walsh]] (known to her fans and friends as [[FanNickname the PAGE]]).

A very [[AlternateUniverseFic alternate universe series]] for ''Franchise/HarryPotter''. Its initial [[ForWantOfANail divergence]] is the existence of an older Granger sibling, college-aged Gertrude (nicknamed "Danger" thanks to a somewhat wild childhood). Orphaned by the recent death of their parents, she is the unemployed [[PromotionToParent guardian of her toddler sister]] Hermione at the start of the first story. When a desperation job babysitting brings her into contact with the (very) young Harry Potter, her life (and that of Hermione) takes a turn for the stranger... and better.

A cascade of events leads from this to her meeting Remus Lupin and the two falling in love, with unexpected effects on his [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent lycanthropy]]. Discovery of the Dursleys' [[AbusiveParents already-visible mistreatment]] of Harry leads them to kidnap the boy and go into hiding together. Then they break Sirius out of [[CardboardPrison Azkaban]] and facilitate a reunion with his ex-Healer ex-girlfriend Aletha; the two reconcile, marry, and join the household. Harry and Hermione grow up as brother and sister in a magical household, adding Meghan Black (Sirius and Aletha's daughter) and then Draco Malfoy (rescued from the clutches of his father in a complicated gambit) to their number, forming [[TrueCompanions "the Pack"]].

[[OnTheNext And that's just before First Year]].

Just a note: "Living with Danger" is the author's first real story, and she was sort of learning how to write as she went along. If you find yourself disliking the first few chapters, don't worry--[[GrowingTheBeard it gets better]].

Now has a [[ShoutOut/{{Dangerverse}} Shout Out page]], and a [[Characters/{{Dangerverse}} Characters page]] in progress.

------------------
This fanfic provides examples of:
* [[AbusiveParents Abusive Guardians / Abusive Parents]]: The effects of the Dursleys' canon neglect and psychological abuse of Harry is laid out in [[TearJerker excruciating detail]], as are the long-term effects, which JKR never touches on in canon. [[spoiler:Lucius Malfoy also qualifies, as, arguably, do a lot of the fanatical purebloods in regards to their kids, including Patroclus Nott, who gains compliance from his son by scaring the ever-loving crap out of him.]]
* AcademyOfAdventure: Hogwarts, naturally.
* ActorAllusion: Possible inversion. In one of the AU fics, Nearly Headless Nick names [[Creator/MontyPython John Cleese]] (who played him in the movies) as a [[IdenticalGrandson descendant]].
* AdultsAreUseless: Refreshingly averted--as often as not the adults are heavily involved.
* AdventureRebuff: Remus reminds Harry that just because the prophecy says he ''can'' defeat Voldemort doesn't mean it's guaranteed, and also that he should enjoy his youth while he still can. They're basically [[GenreSavvy trying to make sure]] Harry doesn't turn into a FearlessFool.
* AffectionatePickpocket: [[spoiler:While she is staying at the Weasleys' house after the Pack's adults have been arrested, Meghan hugs Mrs Weasley, telling her she is a great mum, and takes the chance to swipe her wand. She needs it to activate the Marauders' Map and find Hagrid.]]
* AlternateUniverse: it is one, and it is part of a [[TheMultiverse multiverse]].
** According to WordOfGod, every one of the [[AlternateUniverseFic AU fics]] holds clues to the actual canon.
* AnachronismStew: Averted for the most part; though some of the music mentioned probably qualifies--some of it isn't even written during the canon timeline.
* AncestralWeapon: The Sword of Gryffindor and (at least from Riddle's point of view) Slytherin's basilisk. As for the latter...
* AndroclesLion: [[spoiler:Harry [[AddedAlliterativeAppeal befriends the blinded basilisk]], which turns on its former master, Diary!Riddle. [[ChekhovsGun Considering we know basilisk venom kills Horcruxes, she's bound to come in handy...]]]]
* AnimalMotifs: the Wolf Pack, and the Pride
* {{Animorphism}}: The Animagus spell.
* AnyoneCanDie: Numerous canon characters have been killed off (though more than once it has involved a [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome CMoA]] or a [[CrowningMomentofHeartwarming CMoH]]), and numerous original characters.
* ApronMatron: Molly Weasley and Minerva [=McGonagall=].
* ArchnemesisDad: Lucius Malfoy to Draco.
* AristocratsAreEvil: The fanatical purebloods come across like this.
* AscendedFanboy: Brian Li admires Remus and ends up doing exactly what Remus did in the First War.
* AscendedFanon: More than one fan's suggestions (usually peripheral stuff) has become Dangerverse canon, and utilized in-story.
* AuthorAvatar: A character called Anne Walsh and who even looks like her hooks up a very hot male character. Subverted in the fact that she appears in three scenes. As a moving painting.
** One alt-story starts with someone asking to write the story that would follow a certain "What If" mentioned in the main line. The resulting story follows...
* AwesomeMomentOfCrowning: [[spoiler:after the Ministry falls and a new one is reformed at Sanctuary, Harry activates the enchantments on Merlin's sword, which will choose a new Minister for Magic. It picks Arthur Weasley.]]
* BackToBackBadasses: Meghan and Neville have a moment like this training with their potion pieces.
* BadassFamily: Arguably the Pack. Definitely the Weasleys. The Pride may also qualify.
* BadDreams: Sirius has these for a while in ''Living with Danger'', [[spoiler:a result of his guilt over Lily and James finally catching up with him after Azkaban]].
* BattleCouple: Dare we say, ''all of them'' to some extent?
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: Be very careful when wishing on a star in the Dangerverse...
** ''Be Careful'' is also the title of one of the DV AU stories. The first chapter is entitled "What You Wish For", and all of the remaining 110 (!) chapters follow this pattern, with the final one being called "You Just Might Get It".
* BestFriendsInLaw: Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Ginny seem set to become this for each other, with each of the boys marrying the other's sister.
* BetaCouple: Sirius and Aletha--''literally'', since the Pack thinks of them as the Beta male and female.
* BigBrotherInstinct
* BigDamnHeroes: Ranges from aversion to subversion to playing straight.
* BilingualBonus: A passing knowledge of Latin and Shakespearean English adds so much to the stories.
* BloodOath
** BloodBrothers (technically brother and sister, and the bond is placed on them by a third party, but they accept it readily)
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: [[spoiler:Draco is obliviated and has his memories replaced by Lucius so that he thinks he was mistreated by the Pack his whole life.]]
* BrainyBrunette: The Granger sisters, and Remus.
* BrattyHalfPint: Meghan sometimes verges on this to the Pride (and AnnoyingYoungerSibling to the other Cubs). [[CharacterDevelopment She gets better]] after she nearly gets her [[TrueCompanions Pridemates]] killed.
* ButtMonkey: Lucius Malfoy.
** Snape borders on this, especially in the first book.
--> '''Author's Note from Chapter 21:''' Our favorite Potions Master will make an appearance in this story, and get his greasy little rear kicked. Which member of the Pack would you like to do the [[GroinAttack kicking]]?
* CallBack: See CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming below.
* CallForward: Most of the prophecies, naturally.
* CallingTheOldManOut: Draco gets a bit of this with Lucius.
* CaptainObvious: Referenced a few times; Hermione even calls Ron CaptainObvious once or twice.
* CardboardPrison: Azkaban, while ostensibly TheAlcatraz, sometimes resembles this. [[spoiler:So far there have been three breakouts, and each time more prisoners manage to escape.]]
* CardCarryingVillain: Lucius Malfoy sometimes resembles this, even if his apparent motivations--[[spoiler:getting his son back so the family name will continue, and becoming immortal so he can make sure the family name always means something]]--make a twisted sort of sense.
** [[BigBad Voldemort]], on the other hand...
* CareBearStare: Harry shows Voldemort how LoveHurts.
* CatchPhrase: Sirius punning on his name.
* CerebusSyndrome: Averted. There is still plenty of humor; much like the canon, the tone and story perspective have aged with the characters. However, the dark element--again, like the canon--was there from the beginning.
** And now, like the last few books, it is definitely taking a turn for the darker, but with touches of the author's signature humor.
* CharacterDevelopment
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: Averted in the case of Narcissa Malfoy (as in the canon, does it all for Draco). Played fairly well straight with Lucius Malfoy.
** AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Then again, his motivations when it comes to Draco make more sense if you consider that he doesn't love his actual son so much as the ''concept'' of his son--in canon, Draco is very much a reflection of his father, which Lucius is perfectly fine with. The Dangerverse version of Draco, however, ''hates'' his biological father and everything he stands for, and is determined to be his own person. Lucius himself has lost everything and, with no wife or son to try and save, all he has is his master.
** Tonks probably qualifies, though--the author clearly didn't see her relationship to Remus coming. (But then neither did most of the readers.) It was, however, alluded to.
** [[spoiler:Debatable in the case of Dudley Dursley. In this version, he is both a wizard and a Slytherin, and never has the experience with the dementor that triggers his HeelFaceTurn. In canon, he moved beyond being a bully--in the Dangerverse, he's surpassed JUST being a bully, and considering that in the Dangerverse, a wizard can read as pureblooded after wiping out any Muggle relatives, it wasn't going to end well. After killing his parents, Dudley is killed himself.]]
* ChekhovsGun: The author [[ChekhovsArmoury LOVES]] these, to the point that not unlike the canon fanbase, the series' fanbase has become [[GenreSavvy savvy]] enough to actively look for them.
** ChekhovsGunman
** ChekhovsSkill: Each of the Pack and Pride's various skills has come in quite handy.
* ChewToy: Lucius Malfoy and the Dursleys. Lampshaded in Author's Notes.
* TheChosenOne: ''That'' much hasn't changed! (Just gotten more complicated.)
* CleaningUpRomanticLooseEnds: Eight people in their early teens pairing off romantically without anyone "settling" is a bit unbelievable (but then [[JustifiedTrope the same thing kind of happened in canon]]).
* CliffHanger: Most chapters end like this.
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: red for Gryffindor, yellow for Hufflepuff, blue for Ravenclaw, green for Slytherin--it's inescapable and usually plot-important.
* CommLinks: The Zippophone, a lighter with Floo Powder that is recognizable as a Wizarding cell phone... about a decade before cell phones had gotten that practical for Muggles.
** Possibly justified in that the Pack and the Pride appear to have the only ones in Britain, and they were provided by Aletha's wealthy aunt in America.
* CompensatingForSomething: when Draco sees Lucius is using a big wand, [[CrowningMomentOfFunny he mentions that Lucius must be compensating]].
* CompetenceZone: Averted; adults in-story are presented as being competent, intelligent, and perfectly aware of what's going on around them. That said, the kids save the day more than a few times. The story tends to center more and more on the kids as they grow up, and need the adults' help less.
* ContrivedCoincidence: Remus all but trips over Harry in the beginning of the first book, which everything after it stems from. This is, of course, [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]], and [[ThePowersThatBe there were other forces involved.]]
* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: Arguably worked on Wormtail by, of all people, Danger. She supplies the [[spoiler:magical wedding rings he uses to marry his Muggle "reward", Evanie Meade, after they have fallen in love]]. When Sirius asks why in the world she would do that, she asks him what he hated most about being [[spoiler:held prisoner by the Death Eaters along with Aletha--his own suffering or hers?]] She has essentially condemned Wormtail to a lifetime of [[spoiler:fearing for another as much as, or more than, himself]], which she considers exactly what he deserves for sacrificing the Potters and the people he killed in his "street scene" to try to save himself.
** The Christmas present from the DA to Cho Chang after she betrays them to Umbridge: [[spoiler:a necklace of 30 pieces of silver]].
* CoolCar: The Weasleys' [[FlyingCar flying Ford Anglia.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: Alex Slytherin.
* DeadSerious: [[spoiler: Hagrid's death]] is a textbook example of this.
* DerailingLoveInterests: Played with. Though this version of Cho is significantly less weepy than her canon counterpart, [[spoiler:hearing of Harry's swearing an oath in blood causes their relationship to go very rapidly downhill and contributes to her eventually betraying the DA.]]
** [[spoiler:Played pretty straight with Krum, though. He even admits it didn't take much prodding to motivate him to [[MurderTheHypotenuse take Ron out of the equation.]]]]
* DiscontinuityNod: In a version of this trope, the author has ignored [[HoYay Dumbledore's feelings]] [[FoeYay toward Grindlewald]] (to be fair, they had little relevance to canon anyway, and he comes across as asexual), but does make some nods to Dumbledore's canon man-crush on Grindelwald: in a recent chapter, Dumbledore's reading room is revealed to be a closet.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Magnus Gladius means "big sword" in Latin.
* DoomyDoomsOfDoom: The patented "Minerva [=McGonagall=] I-Know-What-You-Did Look of Doom."
* DoorStopper: The mainverse alone has more words than ''all seven'' Literature/HarryPotter books (1.4 ''million'' words and counting), and (at the time of this edit) it's only at the start of Year Six! Taking the AU fics and side-stories into account, the number is probably closer to 2 million...
** Not bad for a story that, by [[WordOfGod the author's own admission]], was born of a bit of FanWank (Hermione's similarity to Remus, Harry and Hermione being LikeBrotherAndSister), was originally supposed to be "[[{{WAFF}} completely fluffy]]", "plotless", and with an original outline that was only eleven chapters long! [[CaptainObvious Needless to say]], it didn't work out that way. [[spoiler:The original plan involved a TimeSkip from the first meeting to the final defeat of Voldemort, but she got to enjoy writing it.]]
* DoubleInLawMarriage: Considering how Harry and Hermione were raised, their relationships (with Ginny and Ron, respectively) are likely to end up as this.
* DownerEnding: ''Dealing with Danger'' ends with [[spoiler:Voldemort returned, an unidentified spy playing both sides and Harry being sent to the Dursleys. ItGetsBetter, honest.]]
** May qualify as a BittersweetEnding.
* DragonWithAnAgenda: Lucius Malfoy sides with Voldemort believing Voldemort will share the secret of immortality.
* DreamingOfThingsToCome: Danger (and, to a lesser extent, Luna).
* DreamLand / TalkingInYourDreams: The Pack share dreams in this sculptable world.
** DreamWeaver: Hermione and Danger seem to share this ability. [[ChekhovsSkill It comes in handy.]]
* DyingMomentOfAwesome: More than a few.
* EarlyBirdCameo: More than a few characters make early appearances in the story, usually involving [[EstablishingCharacterMoment Establishing Character Moments]], then reappear later on.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Certain bits of magic appear early on and are never mentioned again. Arguably part of the story's beard growth.
* EasingIntoTheAdventure: Both for the characters and the readers, not unlike the canon.
* EmbarrassingFirstName: Gertrude Granger. No wonder she goes by "Danger"...
** Also the canon examples, such as Nymphadora Tonks [[spoiler:who does not take well to being called "Mrs. Weasley" after marrying Charlie...]]
* EmbarrassingMiddleName: Sirius ''[[BeMyValentine Valentine]]'' Black
* EmbarrassingNickname: Hermione goes by "Neenie" as a little girl. Needless to say, she likes it less and less as time goes on.
** She does eventually let Draco ([[BloodBrothers her twin via blood bonding]]) and Ron (her boyfriend) use it. [[IfItsYouItsOkay It's just because it's them, though.]]
* EvilCannotComprehendGood: Voldemort, as in canon, plays this one pretty damn straight.
* EvilDetectingBaby: Harry as an infant--he latched on to Sirius, but couldn't stand Peter. Subverted in that it's only years later that Remus realizes that Harry understood what no one else did.
* EvilGloating: Voldemort is prone to this, as is Lucius Malfoy.
* {{Expy}}: Patroclus and Theodore Nott are pretty much Lucius and Draco Malfoy. (Lucius and Draco have other roles, on opposite sides, as TheDragon and TheBigGuy respectively).
* EyeScream: [[spoiler:Poor Ron...]]
* FakeDefector: [[spoiler:Percy Weasley to the Ministry of Magic.]]
* FandomNod: The author manages nods to both the Franchise/HarryPotter fandom in general (including [[TakeThat jabs at numerous]] {{Fanon}} and FanFic cliches such as, for example, [[FandomSpecificPlot Veela!Draco]]) and the Dangerverse fandom in particular. A chapter in FD even (repeatedly) references the Literature/HarryPotter fanfiction podcast Podcast/PotterFicWeekly, which featured ''Living With Danger'' several months before. (The section in question is essentially a series of inside jokes that are funny in themselves, but a great deal funnier if you listen to the podcast.)
* FantasticScience: Most of the classes at Hogwarts.
* FanVerse: Fans have written [[RecursiveFanfiction numerous fics set in the Dangerverse]], as well as several [[AlternateUniverseFic AU fics]].
* FieryRedhead: Ginny and Molly Weasley. Lily is also portrayed this way.
* FireForgedFriends: Played with: Harry, Draco, and Hermione bond with Ron over a running snowball fight with the Weasley Twins. Ron even shows the first signs of his future role as a tactician.
* FixFic: Arguably, [[http://whydoyouneedtoknow.fanficauthors.net/Of_Alex_and_Anne/Chapter_1_Alex_Speaks/ from the Founders' point of view]].
* FlashbackNightmare: Harry and Draco have to deal with these after being rescued from their respective "caretakers".
* FlawExploitation: Both by the good guys and the bad guys.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Blatant and subtle.
** Best example (also a BrickJoke): after the encounter between Danger and the Founders, Danger curses both Gryffindor and all of his descendants to waking up on Christmas and discovering their best present was opened by someone else. [[spoiler:That same Christmas, Draco opens Harry's present with James' Invisibility Cloak, in an oh-so-subtle way to foreshadow that Harry is Gryffindor's descendant.]]
* FormerTeenRebel: The Marauders. The cubs are well aware of it, hence the need for what's called the Hypocrisy Agreement, which basically states that the cubs won't be punished for things the Pack-adults do themselves.
* ForWantOfANail: See InSpiteOfANail above.
* FriendlessBackground: Draco (before the Pack rescues him); Ron (before the Pack moves to Devon); Neville (before meeting the Pack at King's Cross). I'm sensing a pattern here.
* GenkiGirl: Meghan. [[CharacterDevelopment She gets better.]]
* GoodParents: The Pack-parents (along with the Weasleys and the Lovegoods. [[spoiler:And the Longbottoms.]]) Or at least they do the best they can.
* GoofyPrintUnderwear: Draco wears green boxers with little yellow smiley faces on them.
** At one point the Pack-parents sleep in their underwear [[spoiler: to keep their clothes clean for their upcoming trial]]: Sirius is embarrassed at his choice of Christmas tree boxers... ''but at least they aren't the ones with little yellow duckies.''
* GratuitousIambicPentameter: Well, ''tetr''ameter, but it still applies--all of Danger's prophecies are in meter, to the point where it's become a convention for others writing in the 'verse.
* GratuitousSpanish: the basilisk's name is Sangre.
* GroinAttack: [[spoiler:Hermione [[CrowningMomentOfFunny pulls one of these on Snape]] in the first book. Though he ''was'' trying to kidnap her at the time. She was [[MomentOfAwesome not quite seven years old]].]]
* GrowingUpSucks
* HappilyMarried: Quite realistically; just because the various couples are quite happy together, it doesn't mean they never fight.
** HappilyAdopted: All of the cubs, save for Meghan (Hermione is at about the halfway point, raised by her sister, but adopted by Remus).
* [[HasTwoMommies Has Two Mommies And Two Daddies]]; the Pack is essentially two married couples sharing parenthood of four kids, so the cubs basically share two sets of parents.
** [[spoiler:During a trial at the Ministry to determine whether Remus, as a werewolf, can adopt children, this is actually discussed:]]
-->[[spoiler:"Most people do perfectly well with just one father.” Shybrook smiled as if he’d said something clever.]]
-->[[spoiler:Hermione raised her eyebrows. “I suppose I’d do perfectly well with just one hand, too,” she said, “but that doesn’t mean I want the other one cut off.”]]
-->[[spoiler:The spectators laughed again, and even Warlock Longwood chuckled at this.]]
-->[[spoiler:Shybrook looked down at his hands, frowning, then back up at Hermione. “Yes, but having two hands is a natural condition, Miss Granger-Lupin. People are born with two hands.”]]
-->[[spoiler:“And as far back as I can remember, I’ve had two fathers and two mothers,” Hermione said. “That’s a natural condition to me. It means I have more role-models, more places to go when I need help, more hands to help me up when I fall. More people to love me. Why do you want to take that away from me?”]]
* HeelFaceTurn: Quite a few.
* HeroesWantRedheads: As per canon.
* HeroicBSOD: Ditto.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: Remus and Sirius. And, to a certain extent, their wives. Harry and Ron probably also qualify.
* HeyLetsPutOnAShow: At the Quidditch World Cup. With armor made out of tinfoil. Or didn't I mention it was a slightly shortened version of Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail?
* HiddenInPlainSight: Honestly, who'd think to look for the Boy Who Lived, [[spoiler:the Boy Who Disappeared]], and the most wanted fugitive in wizarding Britain in a little semidetached in the London suburbs?
* HoldYourHippogriffs: More than a few--for example:
--> "Well, you know what they say." Alex reclined in his chair. "If one man calls you a niffler, ignore him. If another man calls you a niffler, think it over. But if a third man calls you a niffler, dig for treasure." [[note]]The original version is: "If one person calls you a drunk, laugh it off. If two people call you a drunk, start to wonder. If three people call you a drunk, go home and lie down."[[/note]]
* HonestyIsTheBestPolicy: Luna (of all people) [[CrowningMomentOfFunny manages this one]].
* HumiliationConga: Lucius Malfoy. [[spoiler: In the first book, he loses his wife, son, home, fortune, influence, and his freedom--his wife pulls a HeelFaceTurn and gives Draco to the Pack, knowing they'll raise him better than she could, before turning herself in and telling the Ministry of Lucius' various crimes and atrocities. The Aurors then throw Lucius in Azkaban, where he stays for nine years. Upon his escape, not only does his plan backfire, he is then ''turned into a werewolf'', though this was unintentional.]]
** What happens to Umbridge also probably qualifies. [[spoiler:However, in the Dangerverse she gets a shot at payback. Before Voldemort offs her, anyway.]]
** What happens to the Dursleys definitely qualifies; the author once asked in an A/N if her readers "want the Dursleys to stay part of the story, or should I let them fade miserably into the sunset?" The fans [[AssholeVictim naturally]] chose the former.
* IAlwaysWantedToSayThat: A meta-example--the ''author'' pulls one of these. Thanks to an [[http://potterficweekly.com/archives/358 podcast interview]] on Podcast/PotterFicWeekly) a lot of people saw it coming; a character named William Robinson, apparently created solely for a scene where he would be introduced to Danger.
--> Charlie led the way back across the room. “Will, this is Gertrude Granger-Lupin, but she always goes by Danger. [[LostInSpace Danger, Will Robinson]].”
* IdiotBall: Not too often, but when it does happen, you will cringe.
** Draco receives a rather sinister looking globe marked with dozens of runes, described as a "study tool." None of the adults think to check it out at all, despite knowing that there are two dangerous fugitives dedicated to causing Draco harm or capturing him.
** Third year, Sirius and Aletha not bothering to stun Malfoy or Pettigrew, leading to their escape.
** Fourth year, Danger being a complete idiot and 1) Not stunning Karkaroff, 2) allowing him to take out his wand ''by her command'', and 3) not reacting fast enough to a spell he cast after all of that.
** And then Cedric decides to literally run away from Voldemort instead of Apparating, despite outright saying that he could a minute ago...leading to his death.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: Sometimes played straight, but subverted from time to time.
* IKnewIt / AccidentallyAccurate: Anne has anticipated canon on a couple of occasions.
** Narcissa's sacrifice for Draco in "Living with Danger" (she hands him over to the Pack, then commits suicide so that he will never have divided loyalties) was posted in late 2004/early 2005, mirroring Narcissa's outright betrayal of the Death Eaters and Voldemort in [[Literature/HarryPotterandtheDeathlyHallows DH]], published in summer 2007.
** Similarly, JKR's revelation that goblin-wrought silver absorbs things like basilisk venom, making Gryffindor's sword a Horcrux-killer, did not appear until DH; in the middle of "Living without Danger", posted through the first half of 2005, the Pack's cubs receive goblin-wrought silver daggers, and at the end of the year, in the Chamber of Secrets, [[spoiler:Ginny stabs Sangre the basilisk with Harry's dagger, then gets the dagger back to Harry, who uses it to kill Tom Riddle's diary.]]
** An exchange in ''Dealing'', with the Pride trying to get Ron to finally say Voldemort's name, anticipates the Taboo (and, arguably, Ron getting it when Harry and Hermione didn't even suspect in ''Deathly Hallows''):
-->“Voldemort,” said Luna without hesitation. “I wouldn’t do it anywhere else,” she added, “be-cause sometimes the luck spirits hear you call someone you don’t want to see and bring that person to you to be mean. But it’s safe in here.”\\
“There, see?” Ron pointed to Luna. “There’s a reason people don’t say his name.”\\
He found himself the object of six disbelieving gazes.\\
“Well, it could be true.”
* IKnowYourTrueName: Comes up a couple times, [[spoiler:but most notably during the Battle of the Department of Mysteries]].
* InfantImmortality: Averted.
* InJoke: The author attended a college which has, as one of its campus legends, a future US President "borrowing" a cow from a local farm and leading it up the stairs of the college's bell tower:
--> The portrait hole opened, and Katie Bell tumbled in. “Everyone get outside, ''quick!''” she squealed. “Professor Umbridge is on the Astronomy Tower and she can’t get down and she’s ''mooing!''”
* InLoveWithTheMark: [[spoiler:Blaise Zabini]] starts off as [[spoiler:Colleen Lamb]]'s secret admirer (in ''Dealing with Danger'') because he wants something - namely, to prove that all Slytherins aren't evil. After a lengthy anonymous correspondence, he falls in love with her for real. She does the same, and they're still together as of ''Surpassing Danger''.
* InnocentInnuendo: Harry actually pulls this off once, though he is aware of how it sounds: "You all have dirty minds, you know."
--> [[spoiler:“What is it that mine is longer than Draco’s, Ron’s and the twins’ are all exactly the same, and Neville’s is longer than anybody’s?” [[note]]Their surnames: "Black" has five letters, "Potter" has six, "Weasley" seven and "Longbottom" ten.[[/note]]]]
** Harry, Hermione, Draco and Meghan are laughing about their hiding under Hagrid's bed when the Pack came back from America. Ginny asks Harry to share the joke, but he asks her for a sec until he stops laughing. Ginny immediately replies with the sentence [[spoiler:"No secs."]] She immediately realises what she said.
* InSpiteOfANail: Since the plot of the Literature/HarryPotter series [[TheStationsOfTheCanon must be followed in the main line]], if only loosely. It slowly diverges over time, though.
** A lot of moments from the series are turned around or happen quite differently:
*** Dudley still ends up falling into the python exhibit at the zoo, but earlier and under entirely different circumstances, [[spoiler:taking exception to Harry laughing at him]].
*** Despite Draco being his brother, Harry still makes the Quidditch team first year, and the Remembrall is even involved.
*** Despite no dragon, Harry, Draco, and Hermione still get a hundred fifty points taken away, thus earning Gryffindor House's ire.
*** Draco still gets turned into a ferret, [[spoiler:but he was under the influence of the globe at the time and provoked the Weasley twins into it.]]
*** The author ''really'' wants [[spoiler:Cedric]] to die, no matter how unlikely and nonsensical the events leading up to said death are. See IdiotBall above.
*** Draco still composes "Weasley is Our King"... [[spoiler:but as Draco is Ron's friend, it's meant to motivate Ron from the start.]]
* InsultBackfire: When, during the trial to determine whether Remus can be her guardian, Hermione says something that prompts the prosecution to ask whether she has lost her manners. Hermione answers that probably she forgot them because the man she regards as her father isn't there at home with her and her siblings.
* InvoluntaryShapeshifting: Part and parcel of Dangerverse's werewolf mythology.
* IsThatWhatTheyreCallingItNow: Played straight. The author enjoys this trope.
* ItSucksToBeTheChosenOne: Self-explanatory.
* KangarooCourt: Subverted [[spoiler:as they get off anyway.]]
* KidsPreferBoxes: [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]]:
-->Nearly an hour and about an acre of shredded wrapping paper later, the children were ignoring all their new toys and playing in the large cardboard box one of them had come in.
-->“Never fails,” Remus said. “We should stop getting them presents and just get them boxes.”
-->“Don’t think I haven’t considered it,” Danger said ruefully.
** Also taken from real life, involving numerous incidents with the author's three younger siblings.
* LampshadeHanging: [[spoiler:Numerous times in ''Living with Danger'', the characters muse on the oddity of recent events in their lives.]]
* LastSecondWordSwap: Sirius' corrected swearing.
** Alex does it too on occasion.
* TheLeader: Remus, Type II with some Type IV.
* LiteralAssKicking: [[spoiler:Harry (in wolf form) actually [[ButtBiter bites Lucius Malfoy]] in DreamLand. Apparently [[EvilSmellsBad Evil Tastes Awful]].]]
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: The canon cast, plus a whole crop of original characters, and not a MarySue in sight.
* LockedIntoStrangeness: [[spoiler:Neville.]]
* LonelyRichKid: Draco, when first introduced.
* LoopholeAbuse: [[spoiler:Voldemort takes advantage of a loophole in Sirius and Aletha's wedding vows--which dictated that there would be dire consequences if they ever used their magic against each other--but they never thought of what it would mean if they were forced to do so against their will...]]
** [[spoiler:Maybe they didn't take into account the possibility of being forced to use magic against each other, but they did take into account the chance that something may happen...]]
* LoveableRogue: The Weasley twins.
* LoveBeforeFirstSight: Danger for Remus.
* LoveHurts: Chapter title and plot point. Also qualifies as GoodHurtsEvil.
* LoveRedeems: Fairly mild example, but falling in love with [[spoiler:Colleen Lamb]] puts [[spoiler:Blaise Zabini]], who was already wavering about the usual pureblood doctrine, once and for all on the side of the Light.
** This may well be Evanie's goal with regards to [[spoiler:Peter]]
* LovesTheSoundOfScreaming: Umbridge is one sick puppy.
* LoveTriangle: [[spoiler:Draco, Luna, and Amanda]].
* MachiavelliWasWrong: [[spoiler:Narcissa's HeelFaceTurn, all done for Draco.]]
* MagicalAbortion: [[spoiler:But ''definitely'' not on purpose. Marcus dies during the Battle of the Department of Mysteries--in such a TearJerker way.]]
* TheMainCharactersDoEverything: Played with. If the main characters aren't doing something, they're either behind it or have something to do with the people who are.
* MamaBear: Most of the moms seem to qualify. [[PapaWolf The dads, too.]]
* ManicPixieDreamGirl: Danger starts out as one of these, but [[GrowingtheBeard eventually matures]].
* ManipulativeBastard: [[spoiler:Of all people, Dudley Dursley becomes one of these--he slanders Harry so Dudley's parents [[UpToEleven hate Harry even more]], asserting that Voldemort's goal is to "keep the worlds separate". Dudley's lies have just enough truth to them that Harry is unable to do anything about them. Odds are, however, that Dudley's been manipulated himself.]]
* MeaningfulName: Quite a few characters (even some of the Founders' children) have these.
** For example, Alexander Slytherin, known for helping our heroes whenever possible, is indeed a "helper of men."
** Adam Hufflepuff spends a lot of time in the garden ("Adam" comes from the Classical Hebrew for "earth, soil, light brown").
** Sophia Ravenclaw is wise.
** Margaret Ravenclaw shares the root of her name with Meghan, [[spoiler:her descendant]].
** Brenna Ravenclaw is a "dark-haired beauty" whose Animagus form is a raven.
* MeaningfulRename: Draco Malfoy to Draco Black.
* MindlinkMates: Remus and Danger.
* MinoredInAssKicking: Remus and Aletha.
* MiscarriageOfJustice: Sirius' imprisonment is acknowledged as being this in-universe.
* MorphicResonance: Animagi and transformed animals can recognize others in form. This is also a Chekhov's Skill and even a plot point.
* MostWritersAreWriters: [[spoiler:Sirius writes romance novels under a pen name. A ''female'' pen name. Naturally, HilarityEnsues. Though, to be fair, it's not like he has anything else to do while the Pack's in hiding.]]
** [[spoiler:And they even manage to gain an audience among Muggles!]]
** Further hilarity ensues when it turns out [[spoiler:Minerva [=McGonagall=] is a huge fan of Sirius' works. She does not take the revelation well, though she seems to have adjusted by sixth year, as she shows up to the Hufflepuff Halloween Extragavanza dressed as the character Sirius based on her.]]
* TheMultiverse: The PowersThatBe watch over one.
* MurderTheHypotenuse: [[spoiler:Krum tries to bump Ron off during the Second Task, leaving the field open for him to gain Hermione]]. Also, as a meta example, [[spoiler: Cedric is killed off [[IdiotBall in a rather contrived manner]] so that Harry and Cho can get together the next year.]]
* MyGreatestFailure: Sirius' angst over Lily and James. [[CharacterDevelopment He gets over the worst of it.]]
* MythArc
* MythologyGag: Of a sort. Tonks' relationship to Remus obviously never comes to pass in this universe, but her crush on him is touched on.
* NerdsAreSexy:
** Danger and Remus to each other.
* NoManOfWomanBorn: The original prophecy: Voldemort knows only part of the prophecy, but it is more than enough to [[NiceJobBreakingItHerod set the rest of it into motion]]: marking Harry as his equal, and thus as the only one able to defeat him. [[SelfFulfillingProphecy Prophecies]] [[TheUnchosenOne are]] [[PropheticFallacy funny]] [[EitherOrProphecy that]] [[PropheciesAreAlwaysRight way...]]
* NoodleIncident: Referenced, along with the TropeNamer. One fan-written story has this incident as involving everyone in Hogwarts getting blue noodles for hair, but whether this is DV-canon is as yet unknown.
** It's even ''called'' the Hogwarts NoodleIncident, and is mentioned along with a few NoodleImplements:
--> '''Remus:''' Well, it all started with a comic book, an action figure, and [[CalvinAndHobbes a stuffed tiger...]]
* NoteToSelf: [[spoiler:In a rare bad-guy version, Dudley uses this technique after being Obliviated.]]
* OperationJealousy: Discussed by Hermione and Ginny.
* OracularUrchin: [[spoiler:Arguably deconstructed in the form of Luna Lovegood, who actually asks to be rid of her ability after seeing something she's not ready for, then is unprepared for and overwhelmed by it when she asks for it back years later.]]
* OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: Dangerverse werewolves are vulnerable to silver and cannot have children. [[spoiler:Also, [[TheVirus lycanthropy]] is a combination of a virus and a curse, and can be treated to a limited extent if it's caught quickly, [[InTheBlood explaining the difference between those like Remus Lupin and those like Fenrir Greyback]].]]
* OutDamnedSpot: [[spoiler:Danger struggles with this for a while after killing Quirrell.]]
* [[TrilogyCreep Pentalogy Creep]]: Considering this was originally meant to be a single story and the author is now extending the story into a ''fifth'' book... oops.
* ThePlan: Lucius Malfoy manages more than one of these, though they don't always work. Also the canon example of the events surrounding the Triwizard Tournament [[spoiler:though it doesn't work out exactly like it did in canon]].
* PlayingWithFire: [[spoiler:Gryffindor's power, passed down from generation to generation.]]
* ThePowerOfBlood: Type [[BloodOath A]] and [[BloodMagic AB]] either come into play or are referenced at one time or another.
* ThePowerOfFriendship: And family. Much like in canon, this seems to be the REAL "Power of Love".
* PowersThatBe: The Founders and those in their circle.
* ProducePelting: Umbridge shows up at the Pack-parents' trial with the clear intention of doing this. It's even lampshaded.
* PromotionToParent: Danger for Hermione.
** ParentalSubstitute: The Pack-adults for Harry, Hermione, and Draco. Neville's gran also qualifies [[spoiler:until Neville's parents are brought out of their insanity.]]
* PromptFic: A variation--[[spoiler:Draco's involvement was triggered by the author noticing a "Make Draco a Gryffindor" challenge.]]
* PropheciesRhymeAllTheTime: Danger's tend to, anyway (and in iambic tetrameter to boot), [[JustifiedTrope making them much easier for our heroes to remember]]. Trelawney's, as per canon, do not.
* ProphecyTwist: [[spoiler:In ''Dealing with Danger'', Remus believes that "when cup is touched, the respite ends" refers to Harry's name coming out of the Goblet of Fire--it actually refers to the Triwizard Cup, the respite being the time between the wars against Voldemort.]]
* PropheticNames: More than a few of the original characters, and more than one of the Founders' children. Confirmed by WordOfGod.
* PsychicLink
** MindlinkMates: [[spoiler:Remus and Danger after Danger's first true-dream.]]
** TwinTelepathy: [[spoiler:A literal case--Draco and Hermione after being blood-bonded, though they have to be in physical contact. But to be fair, they'd pretended to be twins for most of their lives.]] Fred and George come pretty damn close. Twins in general seem to [[TwinBanter finish each other's sentences]], [[{{Fanon}} despite this never happening in canon.]]
*** The Weasley Twins probably fall under RuleOfFunny.
** WordOfGod has it that all first-degree blood relatives (parents and children or siblings) who have also sworn the Pack/Founders' Oath can speak mentally when in physical contact.
* {{Pun}}: Sirius falls asleep in the sunlight in his Animagus form. Therefore, he is a 'hot dog' and is eligible to be topped with condiments.
--> “Padfoot,” said Remus’ voice quietly. “You fell asleep in the sun. That made you hot. Therefore, you were a hot dog. And certain inhabitants of this Den took advantage of that.”
* QuickNip: Moody. [[spoiler:[[GenreSavvy Noticed by the Pack-parents]], as is the fact that what he's drinking smells like cabbage.]]
* RageAgainstTheReflection: Draco does this once, noticing his resemblance to his father.
--> "I hate my face."
* RaisedByWolves: Referenced: Draco surprises Theodore Nott by saying he was actually raised by wolves [[spoiler:though technically one was a wolf Animagus and the other a werewolf...]]:
--> [[spoiler:“—looked a little like a rabbit,” Draco was saying as Harry and Sirius rejoined the main group, who were standing outside Flourish and Blotts. “And he would not leave me alone--he kept asking me questions about what House I wanted to be in, and did I play Quidditch, and on and on, and finally he got offended because I was ignoring him, and he said, ‘Honestly, were you raised by wolves?’ And I said, ‘Yes,’ and by the time he recovered I was already gone.”]]
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Dumbledore, among others.
* RecursiveFanfiction: More than a few fans of the Dangerverse have written their own fics utilizing the author's interpretation of various Potterverse characters and concepts. Occasionally, Anne pulls a few plot elements from these stories into the mainline DV.
* RelationshipUpgrade: Several over the course of the series, [[spoiler: Lily and James and Sirius and Aletha in the backstory, more recently the couples within the Pride.]]
* RightUnderTheirNoses: [[spoiler:The Pride pulls off a version of this, rescuing a kidnapped student.]]
* SacrificialLion: [[spoiler: Andromena Tonks, though Cedric dies in the same place and time as in canon, so...]]
* SadistTeacher: Umbridge again.
* SchoolPlay: ''[[Theatre/JosephAndTheAmazingTechnicolorDreamcoat Joseph]]'' is played with none of the ''usual'' problems. The Pride want to take part and Luna and Draco kiss all the time but then [[spoiler:there is the problem of someone trying to kill Harry, which is actually quite usual.]]
* SeparatedByACommonLanguage: [[spoiler:At one point, Sirius asks for a "jumper" at an American clothing store. HilarityEnsues.]]
* SequelEscalation: To be fair, the original Literature/HarryPotter series did this too.
* ShootingGallery: Apparently there's even a spell (or set of spells) used to set one of these up.
* ShoutOut: Too many to count. Now has an entire ShoutOut [[ShoutOut/{{Dangerverse}} page.]]
* ShutUpKiss: Several times. Most notably, Aletha tells Danger to pull one on Lupin, leading to [[ShoutOutToShakespeare a reference]] to a similar scene in ''MuchAdoAboutNothing''.
* SingleTargetSexuality: Most of the ships.
* SnakeTalk: Taken advantage of here more fully than in the canon; Parseltongue seems to be a language of sorts (though the section in HBP where the Gaunts talk to one another in Parseltongue would seem to argue it can be canonically used this way by humans, at least). Harry has befriended several snakes over the years [[spoiler:including Slytherin's basilisk]].
* StockholmSyndrome: Evanie with regards to [[spoiler:Peter]], though one can argue she has good reason. [[spoiler:Namely, if she makes his life comfortable, he's unlikely to be mean to her thereafter.]]
** LimaSyndrome: And [[spoiler:Peter]] seems to reciprocate the feelings. [[spoiler: given that he marries her and seems quite happy with her being pregnant "seems to" might be a little too light a descriptor.]]
* [[DuctTapeForEverything Stuck Tape For Everything]]: Fred and George invent a wizarding version of duct tape.
* SuperpowerfulGenetics: The stories play a little with JKR's loose association of the Hogwarts houses with the four classical elements (Gryffindor with Fire, Hufflepuff with Earth, Ravenclaw with Air, Slytherin with Water). A direct descendant of a Founder will have control of a certain element:
** PlayingWithFire: Gryffindor's Heirs
*** [[WordOfGod Word of Anne]] has it that they are also very skilled at creating and using powerful magical artifacts, such as Gryffindor's Sword and the Sorting Hat.
** HealingHands: Ravenclaw's Heirs can heal with a touch, though it has its limits, [[MagicAIsMagicA draining them if they do it too much]].
*** [[WordOfGod Word of Anne]] has it that they originally also had full clairvoyance, though it has since then mostly become part of the Healing.
** GreenThumb: Hufflepuff's Heirs have power over plants, though it can also drain them if they overdo it, [[LockedIntoStrangeness which Neville learns the hard way.]]
*** They are also able to walk unseen.
** SnakeTalk: Slytherin's Heirs [[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway seem limited to this]] ([[ChekhovsSkill not that it doesn't come in handy...]]).
*** According to the [[https://docs.google.com/document/d/1O2uWA4F13yJUO-PRs_sYNE6QF25ejaFn6nhrQoK9A7s/edit?pli=1 Dangerverse summaries]], each Heir has two powers; one major power, one minor. Parseltongue is the minor gift, like Hufflepuff's invisibility, or Gryffindor's skill with magical artifacts, but the major gift, the power like Gryffindor's fire or Ravenclaw's Healing, is prophecies, such as those Alex provides for the Pack.
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: Usually along the lines of "I didn't prank ''you''."
* TheTalk: Subverted in that this happens entirely off screen. [[NoodleIncident The reader is left to fill in the blanks]].
** Averted now. There is a story on Fanfiction.net that shows us part of the discussion Sirius has with Harry and Draco ([[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin entitled ''The Talk'']]). [[NoodleIncident Please note the ''Part''.]]
* TalkingInYourDreams: A fairly common occurrence.
* TeamChef: Harry, interestingly enough.
* TeasingCreator: And how!
* ThatDidntHappen: [[spoiler:Ron and Hermione in third year; the RelationshipUpgrade happens a little less than two years later. Harry and Ginny also have a brief one before fifth year, and a one-shot, written by another author, has them pull a more spectacular one after an Animagus-form hunting trip in the forest.]]
* ThemeNaming: Many examples:
** The Blacks as [[StellarName constellation]] is canon.
** [[FloralThemeNaming Lily and Petunia Evans]] is also canon.
** The apparent tendency of the Grangers to name their daughters after [[ShoutOutThemeNaming Shakespearean queens]].
** [[BilingualBonus Magnus and Parvus]] [[OppositesThemeNaming are brothers]]. No guessing who's older.
*** Leticia and Felicity both mean happiness.
** [[ThemeTwinNaming Frederick Gideon and George Fabian Weasley.]]
* TrueCompanions: The Dangerverse practically runs on this trope: the Pack, the Pride, [[spoiler:the DA (to an extent), and definitely the second Pride.]]
* TwinBanter: Seems to be common among twins in the Dangerverse.
* TwoOutOfThreeAintBad: [[InvertedTrope Inverted]] by Draco, who thinks about how he once dreamed of being the person he would have been if nothing had changed:
-->...''Draco Malfoy and proud of it.''
-->''I'm Draco still, and proud of who I am...''
-->Half a smile made it onto his face. ''Two out of three. Not bad.''
** A comedic AU one-shot has this for a title.
* TyrantTakesTheHelm: When the former TropeNamer comes to Hogwarts.
* TheUnchosenOne: Harry, to a certain extent.
* UnexplainedRecovery: [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]] by the curses sent by Lucius Malfoy.
** [[spoiler:The globe curse, which was supposed to [[AndIMustScream lock Draco in his brain in a panic]], but give the [[FauxDeath illusion of his rotting corpse]], so that once Draco was buried, Lucius could come dig him up.]]
** [[InvertedTrope Inversion]]: [[spoiler:Lucius also had a potion which would kill Neenie but leave her body as a breathing shell for a few days afterwards]].
* TheUnfairSex: Hermione making Ron realize he has feelings for her by making him jealous.
* UpbringingMakesTheHero: Harry is a good deal far more well-adjusted, Hermione far less insecure, and Draco turns out all right. [[spoiler:Neville's parents taking over raising him after their revival doesn't hurt either.]]
* ValuesDissonance: Happens a few times in-universe [[spoiler:with one instance leading to both Harry's breakup with Cho and Cho's subsequent betrayal of the DA.]]
* VerbingNouny: The main titles.
* VictoriousChildhoodFriend: With the ships.
* {{WAFF}}: When this series isn't hitting you with angst, it's usually hitting you with this instead.
* WakeUpGoToSchoolSaveTheWorld: An average day in the life of the Pride.
* WasOnceAMan: [[spoiler:The Dementors.]]
* WeirdnessMagnet: The Pack, the Pride... Hell, Hogwarts in general could be considered this.
* [[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway What Kind of Lame Power Is Talking to Snakes Anyway?]]: Originally unintentional on the author's part, but when she reveals the special abilities associated with Gryffindor, Ravenclaw and even Hufflepuff, it's kind of hard not to think this about Parseltongue. Gryffindor could [[PlayingWithFire control fire]] and make magical artefacts, Ravenclaw had HealingHands and [[{{Seers}} clairvoyance]], Hufflepuff could [[GreenThumb control plants]] and [[{{Invisibility}} turn invisible]], and Slytherin could... [[SnakeTalk talk to snakes.]] Harry [[HeartIsAnAwesomePower does put the ability to good use]] in the story, and it's statted that Slytherin also had the gift of prophecy, but it still seems like Salazar got the raw end of the deal here.
** FridgeBrilliance: Is it any wonder the guy got so obsessed with blood purity? His "unique power" was a ''joke,'' and would have been even moreso to someone with his ambition and lust for power. He needed ''some'' way of feeling superior.
* WhatTheHellHero: How Sirius's prank involving Snape and Remus usually gets treated in the Dangerverse.
** [[spoiler:Aletha dosing Tonks with a love potion to get her back with Charlie. She gets hell for it, [[ParentsAsPeople and the cubs discover for the first time that the Pack-parents can make huge mistakes.]] It all gets sorted out in the end, though.]]
* WhatYouAreInTheDark: Referenced. Dumbledore is convinced the Pack are telling the truth once he sees they remain decent people when no one is watching them.
* WhiteSheep: Sirius, as in canon. Regulus also qualifies, as does Draco.
* WickedCultured: Lucius Malfoy
** Hell, most of the pureblood fanatics.
* WiseBeyondTheirYears: Most of the kids. Justified in that the author is writing from her own experiences, both as a child and as an adult.
* WriteWhatYouKnow: The author is a bit of a theatre geek (a bit of a geek in general, really) with a fondness for fantasy novels, Shakespeare, and the various things [[ShoutOut Shouted Out]] to. Also, at one point she planned to teach, and is apparently fluent in Latin.
* WrongfulAccusationInsurance: [[spoiler:One of the oddities of Sirius' trial.]]
** [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] if you know Canon well because [[spoiler: The Ministry didn't have the right to sell Sirius's wand without a trial (all wizards have a right to a wand (the DEs got around that by saying Muggleborns weren't wizards) so the Ministry doesn't legally own Sirius's wand), so Sirius's wand is stolen property, and you cannot commit an offence by taking back your own property. Sirius could actually sue the Ministry for whatever the ministry got for his wand if he cared to. As for taking Harry, that may not be kidnapping either. according to LwD, Dumbledore said he had made arrangements for Harry's care, it never actually says the Dursleys were awarded custody. Lupin actually explicitly says Sirius is Harry's guardian when they are creating the plan to take Harry. If Sirius was Harry's guardian, then again, I don't think it's actually an offence to remove them from their current living arrangements.]]
* YouCantFightFate: But it's not always what it appears to be.
* YoureNotMyFather: Referenced; the Pack-parents [[LampshadeHanging seem surprised that it never seems to come up]], even once the cubs are teenagers. Since the cubs are HappilyAdopted, it's of little surprise to the readers. Some of the other problems with raising teenagers do come up, though.
