TITLE: Voldemort's Children

Three people stand, lit harshly by bright orange light. In the center is Harry Potter: heavyset, hunched over, zir black hair wild. To the right, Luna Lovegood: very thin, with long loose blond hair, with zir wand tucked behind zir ear and an exaggerated expression of interest. On the left, Draco Malfoy: also thin, reserved, with zir arms behind zir back, zir hair short and neat, and zir face slightly flushed.

And so it begins.

I've been planning Voldemort's Children since September of last year, when I started analyzing the original series from a neurodiversity perspective. Voldemort's Children is an “Alternate Universe” fanfic - a reimagining of the story in which I explore one possibility of how events could happen in a world where we don't gloss over the implications of neurological difference in general and Harry's abuse as a child in particular.

I'm going to leave it at that for the moment, but I'll sometimes use these annotations to talk more about the purpose and structure of the story.
