It was full moon when the Dark Lord sealed a part of his soul within a magical amulet, and then broke it in half. One half was left to the faithful werewolves to guard. The other half was tossed into the impenetrable depths of time where no one but him could get it. When the first half has been found, the Order of the Phoenix selects Hermione Granger to go back into the past to search for the missing piece. What is waiting for her is a brutal task that will test her beyond her limits, and an undying love that extends beyond the boundaries of time.
No werewolves were harmed in the making of this story.
Update (9 May): Chapter 17, Burning, is up! Enjoy!
This is such a delicious story. On your profile, you bemoan your early writing, but I've got to tell you, this is one of the best Remus/Hermione stories I've read in a while.
Your plot is familiar, and yet different. Sure, you do the whole cliched "Hermione goes back in time" thing, but you put a twist in it by sending her on purpose, and to a post-Mauraders-at-Hogwarts time period.
I haven't read many stories that showcase the brief years between the Mauraders' graduation and the Potters' deaths, and none of those few include time travel or Hermione, so you definitely have the corner on uniqueness there!
What I really like that we get to see Hermione's struggle. She doesn't want to mess up time, obviously, and yet Remus is just too irresistable. [grin] You also do well to show us Harry and Ron and Remus, waiting behind, waiting for her to return to her time.
You have a gift of describing movement. I never wondered what was happening during the dialogue, since you flawlessly wove in bits of description and movement--it's really good writing!
This is definitely a keeper, so I hope you'll find time to come back and finish this story. Have your Muse kick your butt into gear! [This from the person who hasn't updated her own fanfic in MONTHS, but oh well.]
This is a lovely story--one that I can easily see being published. If you changed the names, erased the fanfiction-ness of it, and even expanded the story a bit (delving into the twins' lives, creating a secondary storyline for each of the Weasley siblings, and even explaining and revealing more about Sally and her past life [like who it was that got her pregnant and kicked her out--now that would be an interesting thread]) you would have a full-length historical novel.
Very well done! I very much enjoyed reading this.
Oh, so very sweet! I love the casual way the breakup with Ron is described--no heart break or drama to distract from the main story. And the way Oliver turns out to actaully have something in common with Hermione--very nice. And the awkwardness, that made it all believable. I really love this pairing; ever since reading Consequentially Yours by Nyruserra, I've been hooked. It's hard to find a decent Oliver/Hermione story, though, so I thank you for writing this. :-)
