What if Sirius had been completly aquitted of killing Peter and the 12 muggles?

Imagine that all other canon factors are still in place. Answer with whatever you think might have happened, but try not to carry it out too far -- leave some room for someone to add on. For example, Joey could write "James would have a heart attack and die" and Karen could add "And then Lily would have to move in with the Dursleys, having nowhere else to go." If you don't agree with what someone else thought would be the outcome, post your own idea -- if you think Lily is the one who'll have a heart attack, take advantage of the way the LJ comment system works and start a new branch of that train of thought.

Assuming James and Lily are still dead, I think Sirius would have taken custody of Harry, but would have gone into hiding since Death Eaters would still be looking for him, and Voldemort, though reduced, could still cause trouble. Lupin would be with them, because I'm just really fond of that 'ship'.

They would move to a remote part of the Scottish Highlands, and live simply and quietly. Harry wouldn't know anything was special about him, because they don't want to burden him with too much information.

Harry, however, doesn't have the "I'm a wizard!" culture-shock of canon, since Remus and Sirius both use magic around the home.

In addition, for Sirius to have been aquitted, someone would have had to find Peter, so Peter would be in Azkaban.

After being interrogated. He doesn't know much these days, having been hiding so long, but he can point out the once-was Death Eaters who may have been undetected, and may still be practising evil.

Once Peter gives in the other Death-Eaters (being the coward that he is... understandibly) There would be no one to help bring back Voldemort in years to come...

Lucius Malfoy moves to the Soviet Union, which is rather estranged from the politics of the Muggle and wizarding worlds, to avoid being sent to Azkaban for Death Eater activity.

With Draco's family in the USSR, Harry has no one to keep his ego in check at Hogwarts and becomes a pompous ass.

No Draco, no Midnight Duel, no finding Fluffy.

No finding Fulffy, no stopping Voldemort from getting the Stone.

*chips in random two cents*

But Voldemort's gone, without followers, by this point, isn't he? Maybe it's someone else's turn to take over the world. Like... Harry-the-pompous-ass-and-great-wizard?

If James and Lily are dead, Sirius would technically be Harry's guardian.

But Dumbledore would have still wanted Harry to live with the Dursleys. (Remember, he had Hagrid bring Harry to him, and that order was given before Sirius was thought to have killed Peter and the muggles.) So Sirius would probably not be happy that Dumbledore took Harry away from him. There'd probably be a lot of conflict there.

I think Dumbledore would win the fight and Harry would be left with the Dursleys. But Sirius would be allowed to visit with him and get to know him. Harry's life would have been a lot happier.

If that happened, the Dursleys definitely would have been kept in check knowing that Sirius might show up any time. Not only would Harry have a nice person in his life, but the Dursleys would also be a lot nicer.

That being said, I think Harry still might have gone to Sirius. Lily and James's will just can't have said "Send Harry to my aunt, who hates everything about our world." I imagine that, despite whatever Dumbledore might have wanted, Sirius would have put a lot of effort into becoming Harry's guardian.
