Harry has to go back in time to get a Horcrux. There's just one problem: Sirius. Won 2nd place in an LJ contest on this prompt: Your task is to write a Harry Potter fic involving time travel. Do...
- (Hinting but not spoiling) That moment... INtense, I call it.
Only one glitch I see in this story: if I remember correctly how a Time-Turner works , it's a one way trip... so now Harry has to go back at the usual one-second-per-second rate. If you feel so inclined, there's a chaptered story right there: what Harry got up to, while Harry was away at school, to make winning the war a foregone conclusion, without getting recognized or caught.
Author's responseI didn't know that had actually been established -- I guess I just figured if you could turn it one way, you could turn it another. But that's an idea -- I'll have to think about how to do that. Thanks! And I'm glad you liked it :)
- This was wonderful... touching and moving. This short scene is something that I could easily picture happening in DH. A unique way for Harry to get his closure that doesn't involve ghosts, pensieves or veils. Bravo!
Author's responseThanks! The time travel prompt I got worked for me, since I don't want to mess with the ghosts/veils, since I think Jo might have something up her sleeve with how they work in DH. I'm glad you liked it.

and not to be an annoying know-it-all, but Sirius's mother's name wasn't Walberga or whatever you said it was =)
I cant remember how to spell her name... I think it was Andromeda or something. i know it's something along those lines.
I cant wait for the next chapter!
Author's responseGlad you liked it! It's a one-shot at the moment, so no more chapters unless I get bitten by a plot bunny to keep it going.
Also, according to the HP Lexicon, Walberga is her name: http://www.hp-lexicon.org/wizards/sirius.html
Andromeda was Tonks' mother and sister to Bellatrix and Narcissa, making her a part of the Black family tree and thereby a (favorite) cousin of Sirius.
Thanks for the comment!
(#) metronome_beat 2008-12-08 10:49:54 AMI saw this in the featured story slot, and absolutely had to click it, because anything with Harry, time, and Sirius makes me want to read it (even if I haven't learned from the horrifying experiences of really bad stories). That gut feeling was really justified when I read this.
Though it was short, you, as a writer, got the emotions you wanted to portray through to us (the audience) so very well. The interactions between Harry and Sirius was really..intense? (forgive me as english is not my first language) And made me want to hug poor Harry.
And as siaru said, I do hope to see if you take it further with the two years that he has to live out due to the Time-Turner's imperfect operation requirements.
