Genre: Apoca!fic, time travel, romance
Why This Must Be Read: The time travel genre in Harry Potter fanfiction has produced some of the best stories in the fandom, and this one is a personal favorite of mine. The original character, Honora, is a great, well-rounded character. She has her flaws and quirks, and yet despite the harsh world she was born to andn grew up in, she still has the capacity for compassion. One of the greatest things about this story, though, is the author's portrayal of Tom Riddle himself. She maintains his core character throughout the fic, keeping him as the ruthless, cunning young man he is. However, he also proves himself willing to adapt. He doesn't drop his desire to rule the world when faced with the love of a young woman and new information, he adjusts his plans, like a true chameleon, and that's what makes this story such an amazing read!
