    Summary

    The war is all but over, and the wrong side won. Worse, the Wizarding World's hero and Ron Weasley's best friend died in the fight. When Draco Malfoy offers Ron a way to go back and fix things, he jumps at the chance. But can he anticipate how his changed moves will affect the board?

    [Trope stew: this fic began as an exercise, an attempt to use problematic or challenging tropes. A meta-discussion of each trope to follow each chapter.]

    Bookmarker's Notes

    All potential writers should read this for the notes, metas on the trope used in each chapter and the chess metaphor, as well as for the story. I'm not sure I love this author's choices but, probably more importantly, they made me think about characterizations, and, tropes, and morality.

    Very carefully crafted "after" fic. Thoughtful mix of food, adult lives, art, and politics. With some great t-shirt quotes.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Not an AU, but an alternate perspective that really makes one think about victors and victims. Incredibly well crafted.

    Fun AU. Integrates everything from the show in a really well done rebundle of scifi.
