    Summary

    "A second chance,“ Death said.

    Harry stopped in front of a bench and turned to look at the being. "A second chance at what?"

    "Life."

    Harry laughed bitterly. "Because that has worked out so great the first time?"

    Death tilted its head. "You've changed," it stated.

    "Life does that to you," Harry said and his mind felt clearer than ever, "Or should I say the last seven years. I never really left this place, have I? I lived a life feeling not quite dead and not alive either," he spat.

    "I know how you feel," Death said after a moment, grinning.

    "Oh, do you," Harry retorted and pierced Death with a look.

    The being's smirk widened as it leaned closer.
    "Bored."
     

    Years after the war, Harry Potter lives an apathetic life. When Death offers him a second chance he takes it.
    Accompanied by the being, Harry travels back to the summer before Sirius dies. Inside his younger body and the memories of an older self, Harry realizes that being connected to Death may have twisted his morals a little more than expected.
    Seeking to make up for the boredom of past years, Harry isn't above carving his own space between two sides to even out the playing field.

    Summary

    Around the time most young children's do, Harry's hair goes from his father's dark locks to his mother's bright, most-likely-magical red hair. It changes everything about who Harry identifies with, who he wants to grow up to be, and who he thinks he is. Instead of having James Potter as his idol, Lily Potter turns out to be a much better influence.

    So instead of seeing a scruffy, most-likely-a-muggleborn boy standing beside him in Madam Malkin's before their first year, Draco only has eyes for the scarlet haired, green-eyed creature who just walked into his life and instead of an enemy, he finds a reason to be better than he'd been raised to be. Not that Harry will ever notice, given he's trying to simply survive at Hogwarts.

    And Severus might not make it to see these boys graduate when his heart kept giving out seeing his very-Slytherin godson repeat his own history and go chasing after a green-eyed, red-haired Gryffindor.

    Turns out the Malfoys aren't that bad and Dumbledore definitely is. Remus is at his wit's end and Sirius gets a chance to actually live up to his title as Harry's dogfather. Tom Riddle is not prepared for any of this.

    Summary

    Draco Malfoy and Harry Potter have had a three-fold bond - soul, mind, and magic - since the age of seven. They are now eleven and ready for Hogwarts, but is Hogwarts ready for them? Harry, abused by the Dursleys and sold into slavery, had nearly become an Obscurus. Draco, stolen as a baby and abandoned in the Muggle world, spent over a year as a sex-slave. Fate brought them together, and together they fought for their freedom and overcame desperate odds to survive. Now, magically powerful and with two years of Malfoy training, Draco is ready to take on anyone who gets in his way of protecting Harry and stopping the Dark Lord. Standing at his side, an equally powerful Harry is determined to make sure Draco wins.

    Summary

    The last real thing Harry remembers is standing across from Voldemort and watching the killing curse fly at his face.

    Then he visited a fluffy white limbo that somewhat resembles King Cross Station and instead of choosing to move on or go back he does something else entirely.

    And wakes up in his cupboard on the morning of Dudley's eleventh birthday.

    Because that makes sense.

    (No. No it doesn't.)

    But Harry is going to roll with it anyway.

    Summary

    WHORE. BLOOD TRAITOR. MURDERER.
    I will accept no restitution but your life.

    Those are the words Theo sent Draco, once Draco Malfoy and now Draco Black. The words Draco will never tell anyone that Theo sent. As Draco enters into that fatal sixth year, those are the words that hang over him as he tries to protect his friends, his new family, his godfather. As he tries to protect the boy he loves from the boy he once loved, whose life he ruined with one curse. But Draco has another word now: Dantanian. The key to his wand, to his blood, to the past, to three mirrors, and to his aunt waiting to take her own forfeit from him. The pursuit of Dantanian will take Draco beyond his own past, to truths too horrifying to accept, and acts too evil to speak. To the Prisoner of Nurmengard.

    Summary

    “Go.” She said, not quite yelling but suddenly intense as she herded Harry back, away from the pillar and towards the tracks. “Go now, boy, or you’ll miss your train!”

    He looked behind his shoulder, there was a train....he hadn’t heard it approach. The doors were open and waiting, and for no good reason at all, he stepped inside. The strange little woman didn’t follow him on, she simply stood there watching him. that same incomprehensible smile on her face.

    “Which path will you choose?” She asked again, just before the doors closed, replacing his view of her with his own, pale reflection.

    ===================

    Sirius was gone, and Harry's world was crumbling through his fingers. All he wanted was a little peace, just a moment to himself.

    Maybe it was a wish come true.

    Maybe it was just the machinations of a strange little witch and her enchanted locket.

    When Harry found himself, now fifty years in the past, on his birthday he doesn't question it too much.

    He just take the opportunities set before him.

    Summary

    Harry was finally, months after being tossed eighty-five years into the past, starting to settle into his new life and routine.

    Too bad that just as things were starting to settle for him personally, events started to kick-up globally that he knew were only ticking down to the outbreak of war, leaving him scrambling to do everything he reasonably could think of to try and mitigate the damage - even if it meant taking steps that a year ago he never would've considered let alone predicted.

    Summary

    The tattered memory of Tom Riddle sat on the porch of number four Privet Drive, pressing desperately into the horcrux housed in Harry Potter’s forehead.

    or

    In which Harry Potter is unceremoniously thrust back in time and forced to deal with Voldemort whining inside his head. At least Death had the decency to apologize.

    Summary

    In June of 1980, Voldemort successfully took control of the Magical Ministry. For eleven years, Magical Britain was finally at peace, only a few rebels fighting against the New Ministry. Voldemort stepped out of the limelight after the end of the war, choosing instead to focus on something important: His sonInferius. A four year old Inferius who goes by the name 'Little One' and is completely adored by everyone who meets him. But Little One holds a lot of mysteries. Who is he? How did he die? But most pressing, what is his relationship to the Dark Lord?

    Everything is fine, of course, until the Order decide to take Little One away from a very protective and possessive Dark Lord.

    And somehow, that is the least of the Dark Lord's problems. Add one clingy, annoying Death and one all-seeing, secretive Fate and you might just have a story!

    Follow Voldemort as he struggles through protecting his child, fighting off a very persistent Death, running an entire country, and for Merlin's saKE CAN HE PLEASE BEAT FATE AT ONE BLOODY GAME OF CHESS?????

    Summary

    There was nothing special about the new second-year Slytherin.
    Dressed in over-sized, second hand robe, he looked even smaller than other 12-year-olds. That pair of dorky glasses and messy raven-colored hair which resembled bird-nest didn't make him look any better.
    The boy was definitely nothing special. Tom was sure.
    Until he met those vivid green eyes
    ===============================================================================
    12-year-old Harry never expected that entering Tom Riddle's diary would result in his arrival in 1940s of real world.
    Or it was what it appeared to be.

    Summary

    Another take on WHAT-IF Harry got rid of Voldemort in fifth year? Oh yeah and WHAT-IF he just so happened to fall in love with certain twins? In disguise. Under a wrong name, that is. Shenanigans ahead.
    Also a take on self-discovery and gender fluidity.

    (Or the one in which Harry gives the headmaster the finger and decides to go exploring the Wizarding World on his own.)

    Summary

    A man is dead at Draco Malfoy's hands, and the consequences will reverberate for Sirius, for Harry, for the wizarding world entire, and, most of all, for Voldemort. It is not so easy, though, to forsake his parents and his old friends in Slytherin, as he is forced to choose what he will become and who he will leave behind. The only certainty left to Draco is his own power, which is becoming stronger and stranger and more and more dangerous.

    Almost as dangerous as how much he loves Harry Potter.

    Summary

    Based on the Tumblr Prompt of Dark Trio mixed with the typical Tomarry Time Travel Cliche

    Even with every eye in the Wizarding World on them, Harry, Hermione, and Ron slip around Hogwarts unseen. Their wands thrum with hidden remnants of dark magic and their smiles are sharp and bloodthirsty when no one is watching. They are powerful, they are driven, and they are just a touch too apathetic to other's pain.

    A mistranslated ritual sends them back in time, to where they would best succeed and flourish, and now Harry is building up his own inner circle and challenging Tom Riddle for the top spot in Slytherin. Rivaling groups threaten to split Slytherin apart as both leaders work towards a similar goal and catch the other's interest.

    Summary

    Whatever Draco does in the past, it seems he is unable to change much for the better. But he hasn't given up trying, and in the year where Voldemort rises again, he will stop at nothing to ensure he prevents it, leading him down a dangerous path. Standing in his way is not only the force of evil and the force of destiny, but the force of his own indecision, as he finds he can no longer share his secrets with his godfather, nor can he protect his beloved cousin Luna- and nor can he keep his feelings for Harry a secret any longer either. For better or for worse, the reckoning has come.

    Summary

    Draco Malfoy never asked for a second chance, nor did he particularly want one. But he found himself in his old body at eleven, and after a year at Hogwarts, he has a plan for the year before him: keep to himself, find Dobby, improve relations with fellow Slytherins to cordial but distant, get over this stupid obsession with Harry Potter, and no more jokes about controlling a Malfoy mountain troll. No one else thinks they're funny. And no more cursing people- well, only as many people as necessary...

    Draco Malfoy has never been very good at following plans.
