I love that Harry and Neville are still very much themselves in their different circumstances, and the parallelism you're keeping up with Neville's first sign of magic. I very much look forward to its aftermath! I'll be interested to meet Vi and Pete. (I wonder what's happened to Peter in this 'verse?) It was delightful to see James, though I wonder whether he'd be "Mr. Potter" to Neville, à la Weasleys? Also delighted and selfishly relieved that Moony's professorship remains imminent; it occurred to me to worry about whether he might have been Dora's schoolteacher, which would have compounded things for them. We can also look forward to seeing him start teaching in happier circumstances.
Can't wait to see where this goes!

I promise, we'll get to Peter, though the fact that James named one of his sons for him is a start on things being different.

I think the Weasley parents are more old-fashioned, in a way. James is more of the, "Oh, my name's James" sort. Considerably younger than the Weasleys, after all -- he and Lily were only 20 or 21 when Harry and Neville would have been born.

Ahem... Lupin's been at Hogwarts for four years. He's definitely been Dora's classroom teacher. Of course, it may take a while (if it happens) for him to see her any other way.
