Time Travel Challenge Fic


At the age of 17 Harry Potter must die in a battle with Lord Voldermort. He is sent to his Death's office and finds out that this isn't the first time that this has happened.

Harry's Death is mad at his arrival. Apparently, people dying before their time is a black mark on the various Death's records, and Harry is getting perilously close to getting this particular one fired.

When Harry asks what was supposed to have happened, Death goes off on a rant saying that he was supposed to have killed Voldemort, found his soul mate ("Some Granger girl...") and lived to be a centennial age. But Harry keeps getting into life-threatening situations for one reason or another; he keeps dying before that happens. Harry is surprised by the soul mate part.

Death gives Harry a paper to sign that allows him to retain his memories (the previous times, he wasn't given this option for whatever reason). Harry is deposited to a previous time of the writer's choosing.

Eventually, Harry gets it right. He kills Voldemort, gets the girl, and lives to a ripe of old age of whatever. And Death doesn't get fired.


Harry had to have died at least three times before this one.

The memory contract must be included.

Death must refer to Hermione as "some Granger girl" when Harry's soul mate turns up in his rant.

Obviously, must be H/Hr.

Have fun.


Dumbledore's manipulations can be a factor in Harry's premature demises.

Hermione may or may not be told of Harry's little "situation."

Disclaimer: I do not own the characters written about in this story, nor any part of the Harry Potter franchise.

Author's Note: I also don't own this challenge; it is just something I stumbled upon. I am writing this for my own amusement. Also, this will be a Harry/multi story with a focus on Harry and Hermione. If you have a problem with this, then please stop reading here.

Seeing as this is a Harry Multi story I will be adding several other soul bonds to the story. If you have a particular girl you would like to see, please let me know in a review. I will not be putting in OC's and Death Eater daughters will be considered is good reasoning is given.

Thanks, Bowser
