** Thirded by Chuckg: This is a truly exceptional work, written by an author who understands subtlety and balance. PeggySue Harry is neither a GodModeSue ''nor'' cursed to know that FailureIsTheOnlyOption. So few PeggySue fics can avoid both pitfalls so skilfully.

** Clendy82: Probably one of the best fanfics I have read so far. If you're familiar with the author's work on ''[[FanficRecs/{{Naruto}} Team 8]]'', then you know what to expect. The only complaint I have is a complaint common to almost every PeggySue fanfic known to man: The main character just acts too damn mature for any intelligent adult not to notice. The author covers it quite well, with other characters attributing it to his rough childhood and Harry's cover story of reading many books on topics he should have no knowledge of, but when Dumbledore buys into it, you know somebody's been issuing the entire supporting cast...I won't say [[IdiotBall Idiot Balls]]. More like Idiot Marbles. Instances like [[spoiler: Harry (age 11) walking into Gringott's, making an appointment with the executor of his estate, and arranging for Vernon Dursley and family to endure financial setbacks ''Literature/TheCountOfMonteCristo'' would have been proud of, not to mention discussing possible assassination with a straight face]] tend to send up a red flag. The story avoids this pitfall better than most; perhaps better than any, but I don't think it's possible to avoid it completely. Despite this one pet peeve, the story is top-notch, with the new timeline being altered in ways that elicit at least one case of FridgeBrilliance per chapter. My personal favorite being [[spoiler: after Peter Pettigrew's capture before the start of second term. In the original timeline, Ron and Hermione get into arguments over Hermione's cat, Crookshanks, constantly being on the hunt for Ron's rat. However, now that said rat was revealed to be...well...a rat, Ron is in the market for a new pet. Preferably one specifically crossbred for intelligence and the ability to detect malicious intent...]] Brilliant. Highly recommended.

** The only reason Harry is able to get away with his maturity is by being careful in whom he displays it to. Peripheral characters like Gringotts Goblins and Dobby he can tell pretty much anything to. Other characters he has to be careful with, poking and prodding them subtly. As for Dumbledore, Harry is forced to adopt a bitter semi-antagonistic relationship with him solely so that Dumbledore won't be able to investigate without fear of pushing Harry away irrevocably.

* May be the only ''Literature/HarryPotter'' PeggySue that's actually ''better'' than ''Nightmares of Futures Past.'' ''Deathly Hallows''-compliant. Well-planned out, and reads [[OriginalFlavour very much like Rowling's style]], save for the occasional profanity and the willingness to include sexual content and references. And those don't really get in the way of the story at all.

** Clendy82: Very well-written and definitely comparable to ''Nightmares of Future Past''. There are just a couple of things keeping it from being truly great. The premise of the PeggySue is used much too potently. In [=NoFP=], future!Harry merges with his past self, creating an almagram of both their personalities and skills. But here, the future personalities completely take over. Leaving aside the issue of, well, basically killing off their younger selves, it puts a complete roadblock on any further character development on their part. It's incredibly jarring to the suspension of disbelief to picture an eleven-year-old Harry speaking with forty years of experience, out-knowledge-ing Dumbledore and Snape at their own game, and so forth. In addition, the story falls into a trap common to many PeggySue fics, and that is to have the protagonists become much more pro-active, with the antagonists becoming reactive. Despite the fact that Death Eaters are dropping left and right, the yearly storylines proceed mostly on schedule with little adaptation. I really hate sounding like I'm bashing this story, because I'm not. It's quite well-written and there are hints and peeks of a great overarching storyline; it's just that when you see the potential lying there in plain sight, the aforementioned flaws become that much more apparent. Highly recommended.
** Amdijefri: A brilliant twist on the PeggySue -- I don't know if it's original to this fic, but it was new to me. Completely obvious in retrospect. I should have spotted [[spoiler:the existence of a Merlin]] ''much'' sooner.

*** Also, if we're going to compare this to ''Nightmares of Future Past'' it is important to mention that [=S'TarKan=] writes on a very emotional level, ladling it up thickly for one scene or another. [=BwaP=] strives to incorporate emotion and does, but the individual moments I've encountered [[up to chapter 9]] have never had as much build/preparation or payoff. Don't level such expectations against this fic, lest you forget to enjoy it.
*** Perhaps the author wasn't creating a bunch of "take that"s at [=NoFP=]. But if you don't like Harry's approach in [=NoFP=], this more inclusion oriented approach may be for you.
*** '''Conclusion:''' I recommend you read it, but also that you keep your expectations reserved. A lot more love and effort went into this than much of what you will find, and for that I must give full props to the author though I remain reserved on the fic. Good work, DWP.

* ''Comments'': Gives the standard ''Harry Potter'' PeggySue implementation an interesting, nasty little twist. Unfortunately, just when things start getting ''really'' interesting, it [[DeadFic stops cold]] -- it hasn't been updated since 2005.

* ''Synopsis'': A most unusual PeggySue fic, one that refuses the usual powerups and exceptional maturity in favor of sending Harry back ''from his visit to Kings Cross Station'' in ''Deathly Hallows'' to a certain night spent staring into the Mirror of Erised.

* ''Comments'': A different approach to the classic ''Harry Potter'' PeggySue, well-written and cleverly playing with and subverting many of the usual conventions of the subgenre. ''Deathly Hallows''-compliant (at least up until Harry's "death"), which means he understands Snape and Malfoy far better, and which in turn means different relationships with each. Features a very pragmatic (yet oddly sympathetic and even vulnerable) Harry who doesn't feel obligated to preserve even the Golden Trio intact if it means his goals will be reached that much faster. 21 chapters as of the end of 2009 and still going strong; highly recommended.

* Comments: A PeggySue fic with a unique twist for two reasons. Firstly, Severus is the one being sent back in time, not Harry. Secondly, this fic focuses not on using his foreknowledge to win the war, but instead to fix the wreck of his life with his future knowledge. Most of it does not come into play at all[[spoiler: until the later parts of the story, at least]], except that he is extremely mistrustful of Dumbledore, with good reason. This is a Snape/Lily centric fic, it has some heartbreakingly sad moments [[spoiler:Eileen Snape's death]] and it explores very well what would have happened had Severus chosen his friendship with Lily over those of the nastier Slytherins, and remained good friends throughout their lives in Hogwarts.

* ''Synopsis'': Dumbledore gives Harry an offer he can't refuse. "A year at Hogwarts without constant whispering, life-threatening situations, or Voldemort. How? By taking a trip to when Marauders were still faithful and 16. !Um, make that one out of three!" Harry 'Patterson' is an exchange student who arrives in Hogwarts at the start of the Marauder's sixth year in Hogwarts.

* ''Comments'': Very very well done. Not much time is wasted about HOW Harry traveled through time, unlike ''other'' fics where the author spends three chapters preparing Harry. Also, the author is very good at switching the mood of the fic between [[CrowningMomentOfFunny bloody hiarious]] and deadly serious. Harry and the Marauders are all fully-fleshed characters, Harry is not stupidly powerful and when he does show some of his strength there ARE consequences. His reaction to the Death-Eater recruitment program must be SEEN to be believed, his thoughts about James and Lily are rather moving, the pranks are [[CrowningMomentOfFunny inspired]] and his [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming realisation]] that the Marauders have fully accepted him [[spoiler: by admitting to be animagi]] is so perfectly done that it's difficult to describe.
** Seconded by KomodoClassic. Unfortunately it looks to be a DeadFic; the last update was in 2010. What's there is definitely worth reading, though.

* ''Synopsis'': A twist on the PeggySue genre that features Ginny as the time traveler instead of Harry, after Harry dies at the end of DH instead of just pretending to die as in canon. Once Ginny arrives in the past, she doesn't even try to preserve anything of the old timeline, going to any lengths to make sure Voldemort can never kill Harry. Things are made more complicated by fragments of the future coming back in Ginny's wake, resulting in some tangential oddities.

* Comments: This is a twisted [[PeggySue Time-Travel Fic]] that basically takes everything that happened in canon--including the Epilogue--and goes, "what is a simple explanation for all the plot holes?" The sarcastic slightly insane comments Harry makes throughout are funny, and how he deals with the Wizengamot is [[CrowningMomentOfFunny hilarious]]. Lots of magic, some drama and romance with the Hermione pairing, [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome excellent]] fight scenes, and it fits annoyingly snugly within the [[Literature/HarryPotter canon]] universe, all the while rolling every one-shot plot bunny possible into such an amazing read.

** This is quite simply the best fanfiction I have ever had the pleasure to read. It finally made me respect the PeggySue plot (albeit by deconstructing it and switching it to a more GroundhogPeggySue thing) but overall I loved it. It invoked the sense of combined fear and sympathy that make me love fiction emotionally.

* Comments: The fic starts out intriguing and quickly dives into hilarity. It oscillates through a fairly even blend of comedy and drama, but much of the last few chapters are dark and almost purely dramatic [[ToneShift in the vein of]] the main ''Harry Potter'' series itself. The deconstruction of the PeggySue genre of Potter fics is only part of the appeal of the series; it could easily stand on its own.

* ''Synopsis'': At the spectral King's Cross station in ''Deathly Hallows'', Harry makes a different choice; disgusted by Dumbledore's machinations, he sends himself back in time to just before his first year. A fiercely independent Harry with complete foreknowledge of the next seven years then dives head-first into the Wizarding World, seeking to disrupt both Voldemort ''and'' Dumbledore's plans. However, his efforts to reshape the future may just make things worse when his actions cause the events of ''Philosopher's Stone'', ''Chamber of Secrets'' and ''Prisoner of Azkaban'' to all take place simultaneously during his first year.

* Comments: A story ripe with Tropes, it's yet another approach to the classic ''Harry Potter'' PeggySue. It's perhaps the only time-travel story where Harry chooses to go back to the end of Book 6. The author has penned a clever, hilarious romp with several turns of plot that the reader won't see coming. The author seems addicted to [[InnocentInnuendo Innocent Innuendo]], but it's done as well as you'll find anywhere. Also employs frequent instances of [[DoubleEntendre Double Entendre]], and [[NakedPeopleAreFunny Naked People Are Funny]]. The protagonist's unwavering, unrequited love for Ginny is balanced by the Universe's insistence that this Just Not Be So. Told in first-person POV, it takes a chapter or so to get going. Once it does, the audacity and ridiculousness don't let up. Highly recommended.

The author seems addicted to [[InnocentInnuendo Innocent Innuendo]], InnocentInnuendo, but it's done as well as you'll find anywhere. Also employs frequent instances of [[DoubleEntendre Double Entendre]], DoubleEntendre, and [[NakedPeopleAreFunny Naked People Are Funny]].NakedPeopleAreFunny. The protagonist's unwavering, unrequited love for Ginny is balanced by the Universe's insistence that this Just Not Be So. Told in first-person POV, it takes a chapter or so to get going. Once it does, the audacity and ridiculousness don't let up. Highly recommended.

** YMMV on whether or not this is good. It does lean heavily towards the ideas of Ron being TheLoad and Dumbledore being an untrustworthy Machiavellian Chessmaster with a hint of AManIsNotAVirgin applied to all the male characters.
