Title: Down the Plot Hole
Disclaimer: I do not own Harry Potter. I am merely playing with Rowling's toys.
Warnings: Crude language and classical references.
Rating: PGR
Characters: Harry Potter, Lord Voldemort
Summary: Harry Potter mistakenly decides to go back in time and save the world! Fortunately, Lord Voldemort is there to prevent Harry destroying it in the process. Time-turner meta!fic - strictly canon compliant!
Author's Notes: This just randomly appeared in my head fully-formed, I suspect it's cause was discussing meta fanfiction with [livejournal.com profile] zigsternenstaub. It's about... why characters aren't allowed time-travel plots (except the one) in Harry Potter. Please, forgive me for Voldemort's classical references. Rowling herself quotes Aeschylus at the beginning of Deathly Hallows. I am referencing the great debate in Aristophanes' Frogs, where Aeschylus and Euripides are arguing who is the greater poet. Voldemort is concerned about the way villainous characters end up in Aeschylus' plays, as opposed to those of Euripides. I believe he'd like to see himself as a Medea. Wow, I've spent longer explaining it, than it features in the story! On with the action!
