Fic: Albus Dumbledore and the Philosopher's Stone

I've thought for awhile about looking in more on child!Dumbledore, though I haven't paid much attention to him since his chapter in Of A Sort. (For those who haven't breathlessly followed my deathless prose for years: my set-up is that Albus was orphaned young, not long before Hogwarts--he begins in 1856-- and lived in the Forbidden Forest for a few months, because it never occurred to him to go to his layabout older brother, Aberforth. Nicolas Flamel, then a Potions and Alchemy teacher, helps him acquire the things he needs. Fawkes chooses to stay with him instead of with Flamel.)

Okay, it's an odd place to end it. Maybe I'll pick up some other time, but I'm not sure right now how it plays out.
