Filed Under HP themed lists |
A fair warning: I’ve been out of HP fandom for quite a while by now. As I read HP fiction nearly not at all nowadays, please don’t expect these listings of mine to be kept up to date. If you report a broken link or suggest a new addition, I might fix/add it… in half a year. So please don’t use these lists as a proper gateway but rather as a general guidance for what to look in other places if you find a dead end here. For new stuff, check comments.
For Isiscolo because she’s a wonder and she loves time travel in fics.
What I take:
- fics with the use of Time-Turners;
- fics where potion or spell-casting accidents cause time travel;
- other kinds of travel in time.
- if a Time-Turner is mentioned but its use or the results of it (i.e. the very time travel) aren’t actually shown in the fic;
- Hermione’s use of the Time-Turner repeating that of canon;
- if characters are turned into their younger/older selves but stay in their time (no actual time travel occurs);
- dreams of time travel; for example, if Harry dreams that he goes to school with his parents, however detailed the dream were, it wouldn’t fit;
- if there are Time-Turner-induced musings about what time is etc but no actual time-travel;
- Voldemort’s younger self (as Tom Riddle) appearance in canonical present caused by the diary; also Voldemort’s older self (as Lord Voldemort) meetings with his younger self if the device isn’t specified (as in, he’s so mighty, let’s assume he can - that won’t do).
- no WIPs that have only a chapter or two written;
- no drabbles;
- do not bring fics you haven’t read;
- do not bring fics you didn’t like;
- do not bring fics the authors of which show no grammar or spelling skill even if you liked them;
- do me a courtesy, please, do not leave only a link. I’d be really grateful if you tell me (besides the title and author) whether the fic is a WIP or completed, who time-travels, what the pairings and the rating are.
# - liked
## - loved
NR - have not read
new - added in the last month or so
The stories are sorted by TITLE in alphabetical order (articles excluded).
These are NOT my recs; this is just a thematic listing.
If you are interested in the plot where Harry goes back in time to his younger self, check this list: Harry goes back in time to his younger self, compiled by Lira Snape.
If you want more time-travel fics, look at this thread at FA forums.
Many thanks to scorpla for the help with transferring this list here!
