"I have watched my friends and family die because two men could not let go of their resentment toward their families. I may not have been given a choice in being sent back to this time, but I'll be damned if I don't take advantage of it!"
— Harry Potter to Sirius Black, in Episode 2.3A Peggy Sue fic of Harry Potter, Ginevra Weasley and the Disorder of the Phoenix follows the eponymous redhead as she and Harry are pushed backwards in time to the summer of 1995, just before the Dementor attack. It's unusual for a Harry Potter Peggy Sue fic in many ways. For one, the characters did not get to go back to the beginning and start from there. For two, the Time-Displaced characters are having an increasingly hard time keeping up appearances, and signs are pointing towards them just saying "the hell with it" and telling everybody on the side of the Order just what's going on. For three, it's organized into 'episodes' rather than chapters. But most importantly, Harry and Ginny never had a way to avoid being time-displaced. Will the mysterious Killconey prove to be friend or foe? Will Harry and Ginny be able to change how the second war plays out? And why were they brought back in the first place?Read it from the beginning here!
