Author Summary: 
Dumbledore asks Hermione to carry out a secret mission before the start of her fourth year. “Keep the Time Turner, Miss Granger. I want you to use it to help Mr. Malfoy reevaluate his beliefs. He is now depending on you.” HG/DM

My summary:
Hermione keeps the time turner with the mission to change the beliefs of none other than Draco Malfoy.  We all know how seriously Hermione takes assignments.  It starts in Hogwarts 4th year and progresses through 7th year (latest chapter is middle of sixth year).  This story is full of scenes with Draco and Hermione in the library and room of requirement on Hermione’s borrowed time and is full of muggle literature recommendations, magical theory (really well done), and a healthy dose of genetics.  This is a slow burn with Hermione working over several years to break down all of Malfoy’s walls.  
It includes the triwizard tournament with Victor’s name coming up every now and again as a recurring Pen Pal (much to Ron and Draco’s displeasure).  We see the rise and fall of Umbridge and special lessons with a reluctant snape.  We also get to see a different side of Dumbledore through Hermione’s more analytical eyes.  

This is a great read.  I highly recommend it.  It’s a nice long slow burn with stellar characterization.  Elesrae gets Draco and Hermione spot on but also has fantastic Harry, Luna, Dumbledore, Umbridge, and Snape characterization too.  All the changes and development feel very natural and flow well.  

Rating: 8.7/10

David Bowie’s Ashes to Ashes lyric // The Doctor is happy too!

The last parallel wasn’t necessary, but damn it, Peter’s a huge fan of David Bowie, as is many of us, and that was a nice nod to the music Legend!

“One of those buttons will destroy the Zygons, release the imbecile’s gas...”

the imbecile’s gas OHMFG

“Five rounds rapid” made me stop it and breathe hard for five minutes, but I didn’t notice THAT the first time
