Can't wait to read the next chapter, but how did hermione and tonks get back and won't harry's future be completely different now?
Author's Response: First, Hermione and Tonks, the general principle I am working on for the time travel is that "they'll go back when they are supposed to", as they did not cast any spell to return to the past, therefore they were "sent" and would be "retrieved" or "sent back" when it was time for them too. Hence, Harry simply having "found that they were gone", and yes, I originally intended this story to be a "Harry (and someone or more than one someone) go back in time to teach the Marauders and Lily, then go back to their own lives, but it just took on a life of it's own, didn't it now?

interesting change, i'm curious to see what kind of world Harry will go back to. Can I guess that Cissy will be residing at Number 4 Privet Drive?
Author's Response: Actually, if it follows how I'm thinking it will, the Dursleys will only get a passing mention, but we'll see won't we? And why would Cissy be there?

Things did move a little quick, and I think it would have been nice to spend more time on voldemort's death. In fact they should have gone back to the club for some more - just to make sure.
That was a nice first chapter, though I wonder how others will react to harry being off-the-market.
Author's Response: Voldy being dead was more a "side plot" of this story. I didn't want to write a massive battle or anything, or horcruxes and the like, so I just stuck with the "something happened on 10/31/81 which kept him alive, so he and Harry are both immortal unless one kills the other" thing. This was more about timetravel and all, you know?
