I can’t find this fanfic I read a couple years ago. I remember the following details:

  1. Harry goes back in time and is de-aged to 10 and is the same age as James
  2. He claims he is the son of Charlus Potter’s lost sister
  3. He is adopted by the Potters
  4. Voldemort thinks Harry is his grandson

I think it might be Ripples in Time (2006) by padfootsrevenger.

Harry is victorious and Voldemort is gone, but not all is as it should be. Thrown into the past Harry takes on the role of James Potter’s long lost cousin and attempts to do the one thing Hermione always warned him about. Is this a second chance or curse?

It'd help the OP and other users decide how likely this answer is to be correct or not. Commented Jul 21, 2023 at 21:18
