The author's notes provide more information, but here is a brief summary: abusive!Dursleys, Sevitus, superpowered!Harry, good!Draco.
This story begins shortly after Harry's fifth year at Hogwarts. It ignores all canon other than the first 5 books: HBP, DH, interviews, none of that "exists" in this universe. Some information from there (for example, the name of Snape's childhood home) may find its way into this story, but do not expect it to follow that canon in any material way. Furthermore, there are small changes to the canon of the first five books; please see the Author's Note for more information on those.
Brit-pickers are warned that I am American and write in my own language, American English. Again, there's more information in the Author's Note.
Themes include but are not limited to: physical abuse, sexual abuse, neglect, abandonment, child abuse, childhood sexual abuse, verbal abuse, mental abuse, rape, mutual non-consentual sex, heterosexual sex, homosexual sex, graphic description of physical trauma, self-injury, depression, suicide, character death.
Phew. After writing all that, I'd like to say: in the end, (almost) everyone will be happy. Including Voldemort. Really.

The html version.
I have started a "random scene" file in which I keep different versions of scenes, partial scenes, scenes some distance in the future of the current update point, and the like. I will probably eventually create more than one, since I probably won't remove scenes from it when they go in the main fic, but I will list them all here. I try to keep it ordered roughly by time, but I also try to keep scenes that go together near each other. So you are warned: it may not always make sense.

The story posts on fanfiction.net now. I have now caught up with myself there, so it will most likely update approximately as often as I finish a new story chapter.
I also have a pdf version of a table for moon risings for 1996, which may help readers follow the timeline of events.
