A Simple Twist Of Fate (abbreviated as "ASTOF") is a story written by TheAwesomeWriter (known as HarryPotterRules1 on this wiki) and is based on a combination of ideas from Harry Potter, A Series of Unfortunate Events, Pride and Prejudice, The Noblility System of Britain, Debretts and many others.
The story takes place in an alternate universe in which Lily and James survive the attack on Godric's Hollow and give up their infant son, Harry, to an orphanage in order to raise his twin brother, Lance, without any distractions.
Ten years ago the Dark Lord Voldemort met his match in the form of a young boy. Now that young boy is heading to Hogwarts, and life will never be the same.
The idea of an active narrator, as seen in A Series of Unfortunate Events, along with the idea of not judging a book by it's cover, as seen in Pride and Prejudice, were the ultimate inspirations of this story. Merging these ideas with Harry Potter led to the story ultimately coming to fruition.
