    Summary

    Two Slytherin first years make the mistake of picking on their new "muggleborn" classmate, not expecting him to know how to defend himself. When they're proven decidedly wrong, Dumbledore has to act as a mediator between the traumatized Malfoy and Black heirs and their not-even-slightly-traumatized intended victim: Tom Riddle.

    (An AU in which Tom Riddle is actually pretty bad at hiding his true nature when he first comes to Hogwarts, and Dumbledore is still the only one who notices there might be something wrong with the kid.)

    Summary

    It's the start of sixth year and Harry is consumed by regrets and frustrations - feeling utterly unprepared for his supposed destiny as 'savior of the wizarding world', now that he finally knows the truth about the Prophecy. He can't help but wish that he'd taken his studies more seriously in the previous five years, and wonders how much more prepared he'd be, if he had. Then he learns about a lost artifact called the Mirror of Paths that offers one the opportunity to both see what they would have been like, had they taken a different path, but also gain the knowledge of this alternate version of themselves. Hoping to gain the knowledge from a Harry Potter, sorted into Ravenclaw, he goes after it. But the mirror doesn't let you choose what you want - it chooses for you and the Harry he meets in the Mirror is a Harry Potter that accepted the Hat's first verdict and went into Slytherin.

    Harry gains his counterparts knowledge, but he seems to gain a lot more than he bargained for. Just what unforeseen consequences will arise from his rash action? - Warning - story discontinued.

    Part of my series of Abandoned Plot Bunnies. Story is up for adoption. Discontinued/Abandoned Story.

    Summary

    Severus Snape didn't know what was going on with Harry Potter. One minute he was having a seizure and spending the night in the Infirmary, and the next he was gone. Three weeks later, he witnesses the boy miraculously reappear and slay the Dark Lord. Now he's sitting in Albus Dumbledore's office listening to the boy claim that he's from the future and the Master of Death while Voldemort's corpse hovers beside them. Potter has changed and Severus finds himself landed with a boy who isn't the same irritating brat that he once knew.

    This was originally titled The Potion Master's Apprentice, written by Athy and abandoned, up for adoption. She has kindly allowed me to take her beautiful idea into my own hands to do with it as I will. It is still here on AO3 and you should go read it. I've used many of her words, her original concept, and then put my own twist on it. Thank you so much for letting me adopt your story.

    Summary

    Her godfather is dead. So is Tom Riddle, which appears to be the only thing anyone else cares about. Oh, and getting ahold of her, her money, and her titles. Fuck that noise. Ianthe learned how to Maraud from the best, and she doesn't intend to take this lying down.

    She intends to change a single moment in time - and change the life of her godfather, herself, and the whole of Magical Britain. That the price for that change is all that she is, including her life? There's always a price.

    Merlin showing up and telling her that the price of her actions isn't her death? Not part of her calculations. Changing the past is surprisingly easy. Living it might just be harder. Especially when the lives she changed to save the future collide with the one she now lives, thirty years in the past.

    Summary

    Albus Dumbledore always knew how to find Gellert Grindelwald. It wasn’t even an instinct, nor was it any magical connection they shared ( although young Albus sometimes hoped it was,) but no, it was merely observation. Although exceptionally skilled at transmutation and potions, Gellert could wear any face he wanted and still, Albus would recognize him. Because Gellert could change his name, features, pattern of speech, everything. But he couldn’t get rid of his own charisma.

    Charisma, that usually affected young boys.

    Summary

    It would be more bearable, he thinks, if the mirror showed him Gellert coming back to him apologetic and repentant, ready to cower and abandon all of his – all of their – plans in the name of Albus. Or Gellert brought down, forced to admit he was wrongdoing, forced to atone. Or even some wild, impossible way to undo everything that happened, everything that stands between them.

    ---

    Or: Albus, in front of the mirror.

    Summary

    The town was so small, there was only one street worth the designation, running straight down its center. Rough-cobbled, it was more hazardous to walk on than the packed dirt of the alleys running off from it; Theseus had nearly turned his ankle several times in just a single morning’s navigation.

    But no one was in danger of falling over at the moment, though the entire town’s residents and visitors - all three score of them - had turned out. Everyone stood perfectly still with heads tipped back, staring up at the shadow eclipsing the westering sun.

    “Fuck, that’s big.”

    Theseus dropped his gaze; surprised by the English, surprised even more by the flat, American pronunciation of it. A fellow stood an arm’s length away, dressed in the same peasant’s wear as most of the locals, but with the straight back and squared shoulders of someone who did something other than toil in fields or over handcrafts for a living. “First time seeing a zeppelin?”
