Fuck the Timeline; or, A New, Practical Approach to Chronomancy
A year after her delayed graduation from Hogwarts, established in a promising Ministry career, and beginning to put the past behind her, Hermione Granger's world collapses into a single moment's careless mishap.
Uncertain if she is dead, dying, or truly thrown out of her own time, she finds herself revisiting an earlier world. Partly from exhaustion and exasperation with a lifetime of following the rules, partly because she's convinced it's all in her head and none of it will matter anyway, she decides that, this time, things will be different.
This is a work in progress, which is drafted to around 5 chapters ahead of what's posted and has a very general arc plotted. The beginning was posted in part to keep the author honest - that is, to keep me writing and updating. At present, the goal is to add at least one new chapter each week.
This work has Books as well as Chapters, and announcing each will take one AO3 chapter - not ideal, but it gets the job done.
Please be aware that tags will change and warnings are likely to change as this work is written. To clarify: no Lovecraftian horror twists are anticipated, nor utter turns for the comedic, but there will be moments of horror and humor, as well as explicit sex and violence. (revised circa publication of chapter 23)
Please note - this work has sections I'm calling books, because that's what books call them. They each have a chapter that's blank but the book title at the beginning. This is the first, and it was on purpose because I couldn't think of a better way to do it so that people could navigate to the start of a given book.
