|Challenge Name||The Girl Who Lived|
|Challenge Type||Personal Challenge|
|Category||Harry Potter > Buffy-Centered > Theme: Real Family|
|Description||When Harry Potter's parents were killed Dumbledore and co. decided that the only way to keep him safe was to hide him from the surviving Death Eaters. His muggle relatives were obvious targets, they had to look at other options.|
Since Voldemort was looking for a boy, they changed his sex. Since he was looking in Britain, they found relatives in the USA, just close enough for protective spells to work. Finally, they cast memory charms to ensure that the child and her family would never remember that she wasn't originally theirs. They even found a Secret Keeper to guard the spell; a Vengeance Demon called Halfreck, patron of children.
But now Halfreck is dead, the spell is slowly disintegrating, the child is starting to dream of her real parents, and Dumbledore is trying to track her down.
The child can be any woman of the Buffyverse; Buffy, Willow and Dawn are the obvious ones, but it might be interesting if it was someone like Cordy, Tara, Fred or (dare I say it) Harmony. Or Joyce, perhaps, if a time turner was used to send her back to the past.
This can be set at any point in Buffyverse canon post S6, and post-Hogwarts (but without Harry) and very AU for Harry Potter. Voldemort is on the rise again, Hermione and her friends are about the same age as the Scoobies, and the war is beginning to get extremely nasty. Oh, and Dumbledore wants to cancel the spell and restore a male Harry Potter.
If it's Buffy or Faith the whole Slayer thing really doesn't work for men, whoever it is will be really squicked by the whole idea of becoming male. If it's Fred post-Illyria the attempt to restore her as a male Harry will just give her a new form she can take.
Preferably funny, and preferably not too much character bashing - except for Snape, Voldemort, and the Malfoys.
