Summary: Harry’s date with Voldemort at the conclusion of the Triwizard tournament didn’t go quite as planned. Fate steps in with a ‘unique’ opportunity, offering Harry the chance to live and mature in the past. For a while, anyway.

Warnings: Slash, brief het, time travel, the founders, moderate super!Harry, identity hopping, clichés....

Rowling, various publishers including but not limited to Bloomsbury Books, Scholastic Books and Raincoast Books, and Warner Bros., Inc.

Notes: This was written before Half Blood Prince came out, for starters. Next, this does include time travel and the founders, but I’m pretty darn sure it’s not like most stories which include the famous foursome. Finally, Harry does have both a het and slash relationship, but frankly, the het one is there only for a specific purpose, so don’t get your knickers in a twist over it.


“I like your Slytherin. You don’t try to redeem him too much and you don’t turn him into a sadistic monster either.” — Kassie

“Your dialogue between the characters is very well done, and I get a sense of each character as an individual.” — SeparatriX

“I like the way you are creating the rift between Salazar and Harry/Heru its very gradual and flows.” — Cataclysmic

“I like your Snape; he’s so very Snape and at the same time he’s different from all the other Snapes I’ve read before, if you know what I mean.” — Eaiva le Fay

“I have to admit that I’ve only just started reading this fic and my first thought was Oh No not another Harry going back to the founders time fic. But as I continued I realised that this is a very unique fanfic that you should definitely keep writing.” — FantasyChick

“Heehee, I loved Voldemort’s cheeky letter to Albus, that was brilliant! For some reason, I adore your characterization of Voldemort. In fact, I love your characterization in general. The scene where Heru and Severus finally kiss was so appropriate, so very *them*” — riantlykalopsic

“This is an incredible story and I am thilled at the complexity of the plot and the ways that you have worked out the plot.” — momma-dar

“Hey, wow. I’ll look forwards to more. This is eye poppingly good. I especially have to praise you for hoe very understated the relationship between Snape and Heru is. It’s a plot. With sidelides. Not an excuse for a plot to display the author’s favorite pairings. For which I must thank you. In fact, thank you for this fic in its entirety so far! I am finding it a most delightful and enjoyable read!” — Lady Cinnibar

“This story was interesting enough to keep me up all night reading it. I like the depth of your characters and they way they come off as real people. You actually come to be concerned for some of them.” — Celticdewin

“I am utterly amazed by the work that you have produced. Your story is extremely unique and it defiantly one of the best fics I’ve read so far. You are able to draw the reader into your story and leave them begging for more. Your attention to detail is astounding and I can only imagine how hard it was to work out the timeline issue.” — NiamhakaLadyHex
