* DrivenToSuicide: after killing Voldemort, future!Harry started to feel the slip towards full depression and potential suicide. Only the possibility of going back in time and fixing things prevented it - and, in the end, he ''did'' kill himself to send his soul back to his 11-year-old self.

to:

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: [[spoiler: Harry's confession in the Chamber of Secrets]] might seem similar to someone coming out to their family, with the fear and very possibility of being rejected once the truth is out. [[spoiler: Harry's resignation that his friends would automatically hate him right afterwards would also hit close to home.]] The fact that [[spoiler: Harry's fears are proven wrong]] also may be similar to being accepted rather than rejected like one would fear.

* RealityEnsues: Harry's change in behavior after the merge, particularly in the Dursley household, when he realizes that he can't expect everything to stay the way they are with the changes he's making.
** Moody's first lesson involves hiding in the corner with a Disillusionment Charm and attacking when the bell rings. Harry, Ron, Hermoine, and Neville were caught off guard but still managed to stay conscious. When Luna and Ginny enter the classroom, Luna goes over to the place where Moody is hiding...and says hello. Camouflage is pointless if someone is able to pick up your scent, and Moody's breakfast that morning consisted of pickled herrings.

Harry's change in behavior after the merge, particularly in the Dursley household, when he realizes that he can't expect everything to stay the way they are with the changes he's making.
*** Also happens early on regarding Malfoy and Snape. He tries dropping a not so subtle hint to Draco that his decisions will affect him negatively in the future should he stay on the path he is now, but did Harry really expect a spoiled, racist brat to take a good look at himself and have a JerkassRealization? He tries making a better impression on Snape during the first Potions lesson, but Snape is [[ManChild an immature man who never let go of a grudge against Harry's dead father]], and sees Harry answering all of the questions correctly as either cheating or cheek.
** McGonagall is automatically appalled when she learns that Snape was [[MindRape using Occulmency on her students and that Dumbledore let him get away with it]]. Her relationship with the man sours afterwards.
** [[spoiler: Vernon beating up Harry struck readers the wrong way, who thought that Harry would have been able to kick the man's ass with his new fighting abilities. WordOfGod points out in the next chapter that Vernon got a few good hits in and despite TakingALevelInBadass, Harry is still a scrawny kid against an adult.]]
** While still holding feelings for [[LostLenore Ginny]] from his original timeline, Harry in his 11-year-old self is both hesitant to instigate a relationship since he is mentally 30 and wants to know Ginny as a person, rather than an idea he has in his head. He spends his first year writing letters with her, getting to know her and bonding with Ginny overtime.
** Ron and Hermione get together in the original timeline, but it took them years before Ron realized his feelings for Hermione and made his move. Harry, while wanting them to get together faster based on future!Ron's regrets over how long it took, doesn't know how to nudge them without creeping them out or being forceful. He purchases a psychology book to help him with this, since Harry has no idea how the mind works aside from his scarring experiences.
** Dumbledore's portrait discourages Harry from telling his younger self about his time-travelling, since he knows that his younger self wouldn't be that helpful and might even stop Harry. CharacterDevelopment is called that for a reason, it took portrait!Dumbledore time to realize his mistakes, and his younger self would certainly wouldn't have experienced the same things yet.
** Moody's first lesson involves hiding in the corner with a Disillusionment Charm and attacking when the bell rings. Harry, Ron, Hermoine, and Neville were caught off guard but still managed to stay conscious. When Luna and Ginny enter the classroom, Luna goes over to the place where Moody is hiding...and says hello. Camouflage is pointless if someone is able to pick up your scent, and Moody's breakfast that morning consisted of pickled herrings.herrings, something that Luna smelled right away.


Added DiffLines:

** Also, Harry has no doubts that using his knowledge of the future, while beneficial to his loved ones, makes him feel no better than [[ManipulativeBastard Dumble]][[WellIntentionedExtremist dore]]. He's resigned to being rejected by his friends if he ever tells them he is from the future. [[spoiler: However, that doesn't mean [[TrueCompanions his friends]] will agree with that cynical view and accept him after the secret is out.]]

** Turns out that there is an "agent-in-place" who acts to ensure that these events happen no matter what, though Harry has yet to discover this.

** Turns In book two, it turned out that there is was an "agent-in-place" who acts acted to ensure that these the events happen happened no matter what, though Harry has yet what. Later, however, we find out that it was just [[spoiler:Draco Malfoy]] trying to discover this.find out why [[spoiler:the Chamber of Secrets hadn't been opened]] and to remedy that. The success in that attempt made a lot of trouble.

** Harry's attempts to clear Sirius' name don't go that well; either Dumbledore is reluctant to make accusations about the proceedings or the Ministry refuses to admit that they put an innocent man in prison.

With literally nothing left to lose, Harry gambles his life on a second chance and hits the jackpot when his spirit merges with his younger self partway through the summer before his first year at Hogwarts. In classic PeggySue fashion, "young" Harry then begins subtly altering the timeline to make things better... with mixed results.

The story is regarded by many as a textbook example of how to do a PeggySue fic; Harry's efforts to change the future create as many problems as they solve, for one thing, and the multiple layers of conflict in the story prevent Harry's advanced skills and greater power from making things too easy for him.

Story has not been abandoned, though WordOfGod states that updates will likely be slow, due to personal issues, both health- and job-related. After about a three year hiatus, chapter 39 was finally released on October 19, 2012. After another three year hiatus, chapter 40 was released on February 20, 2015, chapter 41 was released April 7, 2015, and chapter 42 was released September 8, 2015.

* TheStationsOfTheCanon: To Harry's periodic horror, certain specific events seem impossible to avert. Even when the only way a certain scene could happen is by a ludicrously specific chain of improbable events, those events ''will'' occur. [[spoiler: {{Justified}} by the fact that there's a very smart and capable character working to ensure that those exact events happen, for Viridian alone knows what reason.]]
