“You don’t work here,” he says, dragging his eyes up and down Harry’s body in a slow once-over. “I’d remember you.” Harry shuffles his feet and, for some reason, the movement makes the man smirk. Harry’s cheeks flame. Fuck this guy.
Tom Riddle might just be the most pompous, entitled, self serving man Harry has ever met. If only his attempts at seduction weren’t so effective.

Death doesn't stick well to the Potter's aka another Old Guard AU
Lord Voldemort’s research on the Elder Wand takes him down a different path. He learns of the Hallows and summons the Master of Death to take their powers and win the war in one fell swoop.
Unfortunately, the Master of Death ends up being incredibly stubborn and uncooperative. They also claim to be Harry Potter from a different universe.
In hindsight, perhaps his plan was flawed.
Harry, the younger brother of the Boy Who Lived, was born a necromancer but thought to be a squib. Growing up being able to speak to and see the dead has had something of an impact on his mental state. It's safe to say that he's just a little bit strange... even to wizards.
Harry gaped at the dark figure sitting before him.
"... Are you serious?"
"No Master, I'm Death"
Harry snorted in amusement despite himself, shaking his head in disbelief.
"But... Isn't time traveling really dangerous? What if I accidentally prevent my own birth or something?"
"Master, I can ensure you a successful trip into the past, and once you time travel, the timeline will split into two from the moment you land in the past, making it impossible for you to return to the present. You'll have to make a new life for yourself in the new timeline. And even if you prevent your birth, you will not cease to exist since you will be from a different timeline. I hope that that isn't a problem for you...?"
Harry gave Death a deadpan look. "I killed myself Death. My old life is over, and I don't want it back. A new start would be... Amazing."
Death inclined it's head, "Of course, Master."
