Starts off with Harry after Hogwarts entering his house with some fire whisky on Halloween (or the day before). He also is commenting on how he wishes that on this day that journalists leave him alone to mourn.

He then finds a joker card with his mail and no matter what he does to get rid of it, it will always come back again. He also has the three Deathly Hallows even though he threw the stone in the forest and left the Elder Wand in the headmaster's tomb.

He can’t seem to get rid of them and after he tries they return to him.

Sitting in one of the room he waits for midnight to start drinking and at twelve is sent back in time or to a different universe. He also got sorted in Hufflepuff I think. I think I read it on fanfiction.net.

    This is super light on details. Is there anything else you can remember? See if you can check out How to ask a good story-ID question? to see if it helps jog your memory. – Möoz Mar 21 '18 at 19:27

I believe this is C'est La Vie by Cywscross, it can be found here, though it was on fanfiction.net at one point, I think it no longer is. I was recently looking for it myself, you see.

It does start with grumbling about reporters, and hyphenated names. There is a joker card, which was literally fate's calling card (she's the one who sends him to a different universe, supposedly as compensation - a chance to start over, as it were). That's the detail that makes me think this is the one. If it helps, in the universe he goes to his counterpart has his family and is rather spoiled, the hyphen-name and prophecy belongs to Neville.

  • Yes! That the one ! Thank you! Thank you! – Itsme Mar 23 '18 at 8:49
