Warnings: Relatively canon through fifth year, no Horcruxes, light may be not so good and evil might not be as bad as it seems.
Summary: After everything that Harry had been through since coming to Hogwarts, finding out about the prophecy involving him and Voldemort within hours of losing his Godfather was pretty much the last straw. When you’re at your wits end with no idea where to go for help, suddenly it’s an easy decision to trust in an ancient ritual calling on Hogwarts for help.

Warnings: AU, pretty much ignoring the last couple books and the entire Horcrux thing.
Summary: When Harry defeated Voldemort shortly before the beginning of his seventh year at Hogwarts, he had hoped it would mean a quiet, relaxing year for once. That hoped was quickly dashed when he began hearing hints about Dumbledore's plans for him now. With the help of some unexpected friends and allies, Harry begins a new battle to once again secure his freedom from a wizard bent on forcing both him and the wizarding world as a whole to fit their views.
"There are five keys to victory:
• Knowing when to fight and when not to, brings victory;
• Knowing what to do both when superior in numbers and when outnumbered, brings victory;
• Holding officers and men united in purpose, brings victory;
• Careful preparation to catch the enemy unprepared, brings victory;
• A skillful general given free reign by the ruler, brings victory.
These five together are the true path to success."

When Harry first joined the wizarding world, he did everything he was supposed to do. He sorted to Gryffindor, he was part of the Golden Trio and he was willing to die to defeat the man that had killed his parents. Unfortunately all that got him were seven uncomfortable years leading to an even more uncomfortable conversation with Dumbledore after he had apparently died. But while Harry was still considering his options between staying dead and Dumbledore's suggestion of somehow returning to finally defeat Voldemort once and for all, a third path was presented that would give him the chance to choose a different road to take on the day he'd first learned that Magic existed.
Once there was a Hobbit who loved his family more than any jewel, coveted them more than any coin, mourned their loss like the greatest of wealth. He watched everything he worked for crumble, his friends and family die, then he went home with a broken heart and a fierce regret. When he died this brave, loyal, foolish Hobbit looked back at all the destruction and loss. he looked forwards into the face of Eternity... and demanded a chance to fix it. Infinity laughed, and for his audacity granted a boon to the beloved Hobbit. He was sent back, into a new body and life, with the memories to change everything.
