    This will be a succession of unrelated (unless stated otherwise) One-shots and Multi-Chapter fics that will be based off of BTS's real life.

    Obviously I'll be taking artistic license and bending some facts as I want- but you'll notice familiar scenes and situations again and again.

    TIME TRAVEL -- Horribly written. I tried to read it at least once before but I gave up quickly. I tried to give it a second shot this time (read up to Ch. 3 even). Writing is messy and the characterizations are just all over the place. Never going to read again. I'm just writing this bookmark to make sure that I remember that.

    Summary

    In the back of Knockturn Alley, there is a small Apothecary where Tom meets a mysterious young man who draws him a tiny sheep in a crate with three little holes. Tom takes it home.

    Does this mean Tom is no longer a dull, drab, adult?

    A/N: This isn't a retelling of the Little Prince. It's simply the story of two people who read and loved the Little Prince and allowed themselves to be influenced by it.

    TIME TRAVEL — Unread. This comes highly recommended but the writing style is not my preference (it’s not bad, it’s pretty good actually, and it matches the tone of the story, but I have a really difficult time focusing with for fics with prose like this) so I need a bit of patience to really get into it.

    Summary

    Many, many years after the defeat of Voldemort, Harry has accepted the truth : he is what can only be described as a god. To relieve his anxiety of eternity, he travels between worlds. One day, he stumbles upon one which is far too similar to his first one for his peace of mind. And in which lives one little Tom Riddle, determined to pierce all the secrets of his new guardian...

    POST-CANON AU (TIME TRAVEL) — MoD!Harry decides to split off his world centuries (or is millennia?)after he was meant to have died. He finds himself in a new world not longer after, back in time (1939, to be exact), and bumps into an 11 year old Tom Riddle by accident. The Harry in this fic is quite... empty to begin with, he has no real desires or goals anymore as he still clings to what he calls his First Life (the life he had with Ginny, Ron, Hermione, Teddy, etc.) But Tom more than makes up for that. He bulldozes his way into Harry’s life, gets himself adopted just in time to receive his first Hogwarts Letter.

    THOUGHTS — It’s a very poetic story. And as such, is not really my style (I prefer fics with a little less pomp. So, I find it more engaging when the POV is close rather than distant, like it is here). I’m also not fond of Harry as a character (although the author is slowly giving him life again, he still has a long ways to). But I do like Tom as a character. I think his been portrayed pretty well so far. All in all? It’s a good read. Needs a bit of beta-work, and it’s early days yet, despite the relatively fast-pacing, so I can’t say how much I’ll like it further in. But it was interesting, and definitely unique. Will definitely reread this. Although I might wait until it’s been updated at least (5-10 chapters maybe, if the author intends to continue writing it).

    Bookmarker's Notes

    ALTERNATE UNIVERSE — Underrated AU where Voldemort never becomes a dark Lord (not explicitly anyway), instead, he’s the owner of a flower shop in Knockturn Alley. Harry stumbles into his shop after an argument with his wife Ginny, and catches Tom’s attention quite handedly. Enough to make Tom want to keep him.

    THOUGHTS — What an underrated gem! 🤯 I admit, the AU aspect was a bit daunting - especially when you consider the general length of it. But the author does a great job introducing a completely new universe without info-dumping (which most authors default to.) I love Harry and Tom here. They are both, unashamedly, themselves. And, while the premise and the plot of the fic itself is rather simple. I can only marvel, once more, at just how good the author is able to play things out despite the short length of the fic. They spun the details very well, that’s for sure. Each scene and each interaction has meaning — so it’s very masterfully done!

    Overall? Would read again! I’d love to see a sequel to the fic too, should it ever come:

    Summary

    Harry Potter is stuck in a cell. The war is lost and he has been captured after his whole ‘coming back to life’ scenario. Whilst he wishes he could be positive and productive, it is fairly hard to do so when you know that all of your friends are either dead or sentenced to it, and you are stuck, powerless, in a cursed cell. So, Harry wishes on a star, in a bleak, melancholic sort of way, for it to give him a chance to make it all right and save the day like he was supposed to.

    He doesn’t expect for it to actually work.

    He certainly doesn’t expect for it to work so much that he would be sent back in time.

    And yet, there he is at King’s Cross Station, inhaling the fossil fuels of the 1940s, bound for Hogwarts. He should have asked the star for an easier ride.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    TIME TRAVEL — Harry has lost everyone he cared about after being defeated by Voldemort. He’s kept imprisoned, with no hope of ever being let go. One night, he wishes upon a star, wanting to go back and change things. It ends up working! Perhaps too well. As he’s blasted all the way back to 1944, where a similarly aged Tom Riddle is on his 7th Year of Hogwarts. [So far the fic has been mostly slice of life. School life drama and that kind of stuff.]

    THOUGHTS — Hmmm I think the fic has potential? But what’s available right now isn’t really making me want to read more of it. Like, the writing is okay. Kinda rough and needs some thorough beta work, but readable still (and it gets better by the end I think, else I was just reading faster by the end). Characters? Eh? Idk. I’m so-so on them. They’re alright. Honestly, there’s a bit too much of them. I think it would have been better to limit the number of characters a bit more. Having all these side characters really just make the story draaag. Like, for the first arc of the story (until the latest chapters really), Tom barely appears. Like. Period. He gets a scene here and there. But Harry mostly avoids him.

    Which brings us to the plot I suppose? It’s not my thing. The whole school drama aspect. I was expecting something more Tom/Harry focused. Not necessarily even their romance, but the build up to their relationship. The latest chapters have that, so I’m hoping that continues. If not, I’d probably want to wait a little longer before reading it again. I’m not all that interested in the OCs. They’re alright. But I don’t really care enough about them to deal with their drama. The direction of the plot is my main concern, really. Harry’s plans so far have been pretty ridiculous 😂. Like honestly, it’s so childish. And highly dependent on these abilities (occlumency, potions talent, wandless magic, wordless casting, etc.) that Harry just suddenly has, you know? Like there’s some inconsistencies here. One moment he’s being portrayed as this brazen guy telling pureblood that he is poor and that he likes Muggles, and the next he suddenly willingly teaching said pureblood potions because he has capital “P” Plans on taking over Slytherin. Simply put, his characterization is a mess. Kdkdkdkds and it’s making the plot direction kinda uncertain rn. Idk whether I’ll like it or not. So, I guess I’ll just have to wait and see!
