Challenge: Changing the Past by shigeki11

Summary: Severus and Harry are the only ones left after the Battle of Hogwarts, everyone else having been driven insane or are dead. In order to prevent this from happening, they decide to travel to the past and adopt Tom Riddle Jr, to give him the childhood he deserves.


  • Harry and Severus must pretend to be father/son. Maybe even develop this before they go back into the past.
  • Harry and Severus have to make realistic preparations: i.e. think of a suitable surname, store up money, birth certificates, proof of Mastery, etc.
  • The time travel device itself has to be more than just a simple spell, charm, or time turner. Make it interesting!
  • Tom has to be young, maybe two or three.
  • This fic has to involve WWII. It doesn’t necessarily need to have actual battle scenes, but how the Wizarding World deals with the Battle of Britain would be interesting.
  • Severus and Harry should take an active part in the world, maybe get jobs?
  • Grindelwald should be involved… he IS the “Dark Lord” of this time.

Notes: I’m working on this challenge as well. At the moment it’s only on the planning stages, although I already have a lot of ideas on paper. Although not developed, more like a list of things I want. This will be a long story probably over 15 chapter’s long, and might not completely fill the requirements. So far it does, but who knows where the muses  will take me.

I want to do this right, so I’m also doing some research about the time the story will develop. I’m yet not sure whether it will go all the way to modern times or not.
