The Revenant

Part 9 of 17 part seriesBestmainimagejamespotterI

Summary: James Potter has been watching over Harry for all of his life from limbo, not able to interact with the living world. While he watches, he gets more and more upset at the changes in Harry and his friends, feeling that they are pushing Harry away from the “good” path and away from him. When Sirius grants Harry the right to call him “Dad,” this was the last straw for James. When the last remaining Death Eater contacts the nearest spirit to bring them back to Earth, James jumps at the chance for revenge.

Status: Meh

Opinion: This story was such a deviation from the rest of the series, that it was jarring after the last long fanfiction. The sudden shift to James Potter’s perspective was harsh and it seemed out of character for James to want to stay without Lily for so long in limbo, and especially for him to get so angry with Sirius for taking over the father figure in Harry’s life. This did not really add any new information to the storyline and was actually not that interesting.
