We are all aware of what happened in the Harry Potter books. (Well, probably most of us are aware of that, being as you are here.) But what if, in JK Rowling's imaginings, something was a little (or a lot) different?
How would the story have changed if:
1) Lily Evans decided to dump James Potter and chose Severus Snape in their 7th year?
2) Petunia Dursley ended up taking a Kwik-spell Course when she was a teenager?
3) Dudley was friends with Harry, having managed (somehow) to be immune to his parent's brainwashing (and the resonances coming from them at Harry).
Or - is there another book or series of books, which would have some interesting changes in the story if something within the story changed? What book or story? Who is the author? What is the situation and what you suggest as a change? What might happen if that change was made?
