Hey there, I am going to try to write a time travel fanfiction about Harry Potter and Hermione Granger. I am going to write this story when I want to take a break from Before the Worst. This is my first time travel fic, so please be open-minded. Please ignore the curse words if they bother you that much. Er..yeah. All rights go to JK Rowling. I am not her. Enjoy~ LunaRue

Dumbledore had just told me that I had to sacrifice myself to save the people I love and win this war. What he didn't count on was a friend betraying us. The same friend walked out of the tent on us during our hunt for the horcruxes. After he left, the effects of the loved potions he had served Hermione and I were started to disappear. Hermione and I were devastated beyond belief. We had been fed love potions by the Weasley matriarch and two youngest for the past three years.
Hermione became depressed. She wouldn't eat or even talk. I did the only thing that came to mind to distract her, something she wouldn't expect. I kissed her. When I kissed her, I felt like nothing could tear us apart, I felt like if I just ran away with her, that would be enough. Later that day, we both confessed that we had loved each other more than friends for a while but had never been able to act on the feelings.
A few weeks went by and we got closer. We still didn't know where the horcruxes were but we had each other. A week later, after Malfoy Manor, we got caught in the moment. Hermione found out four weeks later that she was pregnant using a spell Madam Pomfrey had showed her. We couldn't find out the gender because the baby was too young but Hermione said it was a girl. We were going to name the baby Lily Jo after our mothers.
Hermione and I were now at Voldemort's feet. Our plan had gone wrong. After I uncovered that I was alive and told Tom I knew his secret. I could see fear in his eyes as I told him how we destroyed all his horcruxes. The cup, the snake, the diadem, the locket, the diary, the ring...me. I was surprised when he laughed. There, we discovered a flaw in Dumbledore's plan. Voldemort had not created seven horcruxes but eight.
"Before I kill you and your mudblood bitch Potter, I might as well tell you what my last horcrux is. It, you will never find. It, you will never have a chance to destroy. It, the final horcrux that will allow me to live forever. It is in the room that no one would look for. It is my most prized possession. It is a ring of my old beloved, Potter. The ring has a ruby in the middle surrounded by silver. My beloved has a ring just like it although it is an emerald surrounded by gold. Now goodbye Harry Potter. AVADA KEDAVRA!" Voldemort shouted. (Author note: This honestly seems like a rant he would give.)
I held Hermione close as the killing curse shot towards us.
"I love you Mia," I whispered as the curse hit and the three of us collapsed.
Harry opened his eyes and saw that he was still holding Hermione.
"Hermione?" Harry whispered.
"Harry!" Hermione sobbed and clung to him. Her hair tickled his nose as he let his own tears fall.
Someone coughed and got their attention. In front of them was a woman that had silky black hair that was in waves down her back. She had bright silver eyes and a button nose. She was dressed in a dark royal blue robe.
Harry pushed Hermione behind him and went for his wand, only to find that it was gone. Panic filled his chest.
"Where's my wand?" he whispered.
"Who are you?" Hermione asked at the same time, peeking out from behind Harry.
A dreamy smile spread across the strangers face. "There is no need for wands here, Harry. As for who I am? You mortals call me Fate."
"Fate?" Harry and Hermione repeated, stunned.
"What do you need with us?" Hermione whispered, suddenly feeling tired as she leaned back against Harry. "Didn't we just die? Can't we finally just have some peace?"
Fate's smile turned sad. "Yes you both did die. But your souls have always been two of my favorites, and I don't like how your lives were lived. So I am here to offer you both a second chance to fix everything that has happened. Find the truth and save lives that were stolen and wronged."
"Would we have our memories of last time?" Harry spoke up, his arms tightening around Hermione.
"Of course. You would need to remember this time to fix them on your second try." Fate's serene smile returned. "Now the question is. Do you both want to go back and redo your life? It will be hard, changes will happen that you can't prevent."
"Can we discuss this?" Harry asked sending as anxious glance at Hermione.
Fate nodded and Harry and Hermione walked over to a bench that appeared and sat down. Harry grabbed Hermione's hands and held them close.
"What do you want to do Mia?" Harry whispered, looking into her eyes.
"I don't know Harry," tears filled her haunted eyes. "We lost so many people, what if we can't save them?"
"We can Mia, we know what will and could happen now. We'll be together, and that'll be enough." Harry kissed Hermione's forehead softly.
Hermione nodded, hugging Harry hard, whispered, "Okay."
Fate walked over to the couple, knowing their answer of course.
"Thank you for this." Fate said, "It will be hard, but please remember, that it will be worth it."
"Now, what time shall I send you back to?" Fate asked with a twinkle in her eye. "I think Harry's birthday before first year will do."
Silence descended among the three before Hermione and Harry nodded.
"Wait Fate. W-What about our Lily Jo?" Hermione asked anxiously, pressing a hand to her now-flat stomach.
"She will be ready to be born when you both are ready for her," Fate smiled.
Harry turned to Hermione and kissed her.
"I'll see you soon Mia," Harry said with a final kiss.
"I love you Harry," Harry heard Hermione say right before Fate sent them back to the past to redo their lives.
Do you like it? Should I continue? ~LunaRue
