Potions are a tricky thing and Hermione and Severus learn just how tricky one afternoon while brewing. The result sends them back in time where they learn a little bit more about themselves than they previously knew.
I thought I’d try my hand at a time turner story, which are some of my favourite stories to read. However, rather than the write an angst filled Hermione-falls-in-love-with-younger-Severus-and-will-he-still-love-her-in-the-future story, I took a VERY LIGHTHEARTED approach.
Severus, in this story, is out of character in that he neither dark nor emotionally repressed, and Hermione has lost her bookish, hand waving, prim know-it-all ways. I did not consider the epilogue in DH at all and of course, I disregarded the chapter where the sexy Potions Master dies; all other characters that JK Rowling killed off in her books are, sadly, still dead when I return our intrepid couple to the present day. Sorry!
The characters are irreverent and fun. There is a light bit of plot, but the point of the story is to have fun reading it. I simply am not fussed with all the minutiae of time travel do’s and don’ts. If there are a few anachronisms or I’ve veered from events as they took place in canon or fanon, then….whoops!
