    Summary

    When a mishap drops Albus Dumbledore back in the 1930s, he takes every available opportunity to meddle. He averts a World War and preemptively locks up one Dark-Lord-to-be. Furthermore, he adopts a young Tom Riddle in order to keep a closer eye on his development.

    This will go swimmingly. After all, Albus Dumbledore is so very good with children.

    One of those weird but wonderful finds in the fandom! I love Albus' characterisation, and Tom's thoughts can be quite delightful.

    I will always remember this as the most gut-wrenching PTSD story I know. Because it punched me once more in the face when I thought things were sort of on the mend. A definite read for how excellent it depicts the problematic side of this pairing (while making it even messier than it already is).

    This one's weird but incredibly enjoyable if you give it a go. It will take the story in a much different direction than you think around the half-point mark.
