Summary: When Harry, Ginny, Draco, and Hermione are sent back in time by some unknown person, they find them stuck in 1945, along with Tom Riddle in his seventh year. They must learn to navigate the different world while attempting to not change the future too much while also trying to find their way back home. When Riddle takes an unusual interest in Hermione, the future is irreparably changed, especially when they find their way back to the year 2000 and then are promptly sent back.
Opinion: The time travel with four individuals worked very well for this story and lent itself to some entertaining and challenging moments. The relationship between Hermione and Tom let both of them stay themselves and in character. The changes to the future were well meditated and even the charisma that was evidenced in Tom’s interactions as a teenager gave him must more depth without deviating from the original portrayal. The only strange aspect of the story was the introduction of Salazar Slytherin, though it did add some knowledge to the time travel itself.
