A Place Where I Belong
Harry Potter/Stargate XOver
Loprogue and Author's Notes
This is were I'm going to put all the legal stuff and I also wanted a place to put the answers to various questions or let you know when chapters had been revised since is most definitely a work in progress and probably all the chapters will be revised a number of times before I get story the way I want it. Also a number of people said they didn't know what Stargate was so I thought I would give you a little heads up on it.
First the legal stuff. I don't own any of the Harry Potter characters, plot, etc, (J.K. Rowling does) but I wish I did. Nor do I own Stargate (but I do wish I owned Daniel, or at least had him for a while. If you are old enough and have ever seen Daniel Jackson/Michael Shanks you would understand why.). This is not intended to infringe on their copyrights, it is just intended for my enjoyment and the enjoyment of others. If you decide to sue, then you can have all my Bills. That's about all I've got.
First if you have the Sci-Fi channel and want to see Stargate, I highly recommend it. Fox may also be running it in certain areas. In my area at the beginning of the week they run a block of 4 episodes from prior seasons, for those who missed them. Then on Fri they run 2 episodes from the current season. Also there was a movie that the series is based on, that should be available for rent.
However this is not telling you what Stargate is, so here we go, brief synopsis: In 1928 an archeologist named Langford found a big and I do mean BIG ring buried on the Giza Plateau along with a number of other things. Now we fast forward to the late 80's, early 90's (can't remember exactly when the movie came out) a brilliant if slightly off-the-wall young archeologist/linguist named Daniel Jackson gave a paper stating his belief that man's history is far older than established theory which puts it at about 5,000 years; The beginning of Egyptian civilization (he was thinking like 10,000) and that there had been some alien influence that helped it along, because of things that pop up in different places that should have had no contact each other (you know like the Mayan Pyramids that are on the same I guess it would be called longitude as the Giza Pyramids. I won't go into all of it, if you want to know you can see the movie) Anyway needless to say, he was kicked out of the gravediggers club for daring to go against older and wiser heads. He was promptly hired for a translation job by Katherine Langford, daughter of the guy who found the ring who is working for the Air force to figure it out.
His translation job is the coverstone that was hiding the ring, and he corrects their translation of the hieroglyphs in about 30 seconds, then proceeds to figure out the purpose of the ring and how to make it work in about a week without ever seeing it or knowing it exists. The ring is a stargate a device designed to create stable wormholes, between one point and another as long as you have the address to it (there are 7 points kind of like dialing a phone number) Anyway to make a long story short he and a military team headed by Jack O'Neill got to go through the gate to a place called Abydos. There they find an ancient Egyptian civilization. Jackson gets married, without realizing it's happened to a lovely woman named Shau'ri. Alien bad guy with glowing eyes who is pretending to be Ra makes his appearance. Daniel dies and gets revived by the bad guy who in typical bad guy fashion can't resist gloating. Daniel, Jack and the Abydonians kick Ra's butt. Daniel stays behind on Abydos with the girl.
Now we fast forward about a year, Air force is getting ready to close down the Stargate, when a glowing eyed alien came through and took one of the guards a female, and killed the rest. This leads to O'Neill and the remaining members of the original team being recalled. The Air force finds out Daniel didn't die, they go to Abydos to make sure the alien didn't come from there and find out there are more places they can go because Daniel found a whole room of gate addresses and figure out that the new bad guy must have come from there. While Daniel is showing the Air force the cartouche room, the new alien bad guy shows up and takes Daniel's wife and brother-in-law. You guessed, this leads to Daniel going back to Earth and getting involved.
And that as they say is History. Daniel and Jack along with Major Samantha Carter, and Teal'c (an alien who used to work for the bad guys) along with a cast of others try to defend the Earth from invasion by the parasitic Aliens, meet and greet with alien races as well as lost civilizations from Earth that were taken from earth either by the bad aliens as slave labor and hosts, or by good aliens like the Asgard (otherwise known to some as the Greys (you know the little grey guys with the big eyeballs)) and the Tok'ra who are or rather were Goa'uld, but are no longer taking unwilling hosts and are running a rebellion against the Goa'uld.
Questions that have been asked:
Lady Foxfire – I have no immediate plans to bring Sirius into this story, even as his alternate reality counterpart, but then again I didn't plan on bringing in Tom Riddle either. Harry's parents did find out what happened to Sirius. Magic does exist here, primarily Wiccan type, but wanded magic will work as well. There is however no wizarding community like in the Harry Potter universe.
Cat323 and Ravensblack – If I told you now it would spoil the story, you'll just have to wait and see what happens. I'm not really writing this story, they are. They just tell me what happens and I put it down on paper.
Sierra-Falls – I thought I'd explained it in the flashback, but the spell Harry did with young Daniel Jackson, basically transferred all his knowledge, skills, and potential (his soul in a way) to Harry at the moment of death. He is basically a merged person Daniel/Harry. That's why he didn't suffer too much when his alternate self was born, because Daniel's essence protected. I toyed with the idea of him getting the parents skills as well but decided that would be a bit much.
Melissa – He came in time in the same day and year he left his reality. He spent part of his time looking for a life to assume in the past, in case Dumbledore did figure out how to send someone after him. It took Harry's parents time to A) find the spell and B) reword it so that it would take them to the same reality Harry had gone to, otherwise it would have just opened a portal to the reality that was right for them. As for how Harry went back in time…. It was magic of course.
TheFirstOne, Saetan – The Stargate season is Season 5, after Summit, because I want to involve Anubis, but definitely before Meridian where Daniel Ascends. As for the rest of your questions, TheFirstOne just wait and see.
Kyntor – Rechecked OotP and while Mrs. Weasley says that the twins are allowed to do magic, no where does it say they are legally considered adults, in fact she states they are too young and if they were "legally" adults she couldn't ban them from joining the Order because she would no longer have full say over their lives. Their being allowed to work magic outside school when they are 17 is like being able to get your driver's license at 16 in the U.S. You are considered responsible enough to be trusted to know what to do and what not to do. I will be adding a section to cover that, but until I see from JK Rowling in the books, or on an official website that at 17 a wizard/witch is considered a "legal" adult, then I will leave the age someone is considered a legal "adult" at 18. As for your comment about Dumbledore knowing that the Dursleys would mistreat Harry, OotP disagrees slightly with that as well. Dumbledore stated he knew he was condemning Harry to '10 dark and difficult years', but further in he says: 'you arrived at Hogwarts, neither as happy nor as well-nourished as I would have liked, perhaps, yet alive and healthy.' To me this implies that Dumbledore knew they weren't going to treat him as someone special and that he might grow up without love, but that when he did arrive he looked worse off than Dumbledore originally expected.
j - No Daniel hasn't come up with a Degou'alding spell. The only magic in this reality is of the Wiccan type. As for how James and Lily connected Daniel to Harry. They have a tracking spell for the wand core of Harry's wand. There is only one Phoenix feather in this reality, that was given by Fawkes. That's what they were looking for when they broke into Daniel's apartment.
Anonymous - Harry's scar disappeared when he became Daniel Jackson.
Borg, borne-shadow-childe and others like them - I have only one comment for you. If you don't like my story, don't read it. No one is holding a gun to your head.
Now I have a Question for you, who read this story, if you know about the Stargate universe. If the Major characters (Daniel, Jack, Sam and Teal'c) were sorted by the Sorting Hat at Hogwarts, which house do you think they would be put in and why?
Revised chapters: (as of 11/1/04)
Chapter 1 and 2 - Have been revised to take of some errors that were pointed out.
