‘Have you tried everything?’ Hermione asked insistently.
‘Yes! Every time I get to the cup and Cedric doesn’t take it with me I go immediately back to my bed in the morning. But all the times he is with me, he dies and after I fall asleep I return too.’
‘I guess it is obvious then, isn’t it?’ Both Harry and Hermione turned to stare at Ron, who looked at them defensively and shrugged ‘You have to go with Diggory and make sure he survives.’
Harry/Cedric - Groundhog day AU
Harry gets another chance - and another and another. At some point, they stop feeling like chances at all.
In the middle of their second year, Draco and Harry discover they're soulmates and do their best to keep it a secret from everyone.
Their best isn't perfect.
“Are you trying to get killed, Potter?” Malfoy drawls, stalking forward. Quick as a serpent himself, he reaches out and grabs the snake just below the head. It thrashes in his grip, but is no longer able to bite anyone. “This is a poisonous snake, and I doubt anyone brought a bezoar with them.”
Harry glares. He opens his mouth, and feels the beginning the snake’s language pass his lips, and this isn’t what he wants, what’s the point of insulting Malfoy if he can’t understand him –
Malfoy’s eyes widen. He slaps his hand over Harry’s mouth, “Potter, what the hell–”
(Now with a TV Tropes page!)
"I am searching for a trail to follow, again.
Take me back to the night we met."
Draco Malfoy tried to put the war behind him. But a run-in with the allegedly dead Harry James Potter has Draco stuffed back in time to 1991 in his eleven year old body. "Blessed" with this opportunity, Draco takes it upon himself to rewrite a familiar seven years of history, and tries not to be a dick about it.
In an AU where Neville is the Boy-Who-Lived with dead parents and Harry is the ordinary boy with insane parents in St. Mungo's, Harry turns to Transfiguration to try and heal his parents' brains. This Harry is amoral, unafraid to experiment, and literally more animal than human. His closest relationships are with Minerva and Regulus Black, who, in this AU, lived where Sirius died.
The main fic, 'The Art of Self-Fashioning,' is complete, but I will add small fics to the Animal Eyes epilogue as I think of them.
