Fanfic / Last Chance

Go To

Last Chance Harry Potter Alternate Universe Fanfic in which Dumbledore actually acts as a sensible and professional educator he's supposed to be when first meeting Tom Riddle.

Tropes Present In This Work:

  • Artistic License – Economics: Subverted. When Dumbledore gives a 100 pounds donation to the Wool's Orphanage which, due to inflation, would be the equivalent of 5000 pounds on today's money. Mrs. Cole's atonished reaction is thus understandable.
  • Advertisement:
  • Great Offscreen War: Played with. The fic starts in 1938, just a year before the start of the Second World War as well the rise of Grindelwald in the Wizarding World.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Dumbledore.
  • Troubling Unchildlike Behavior: Tom Riddle. Dumbledore is understanbly creeped out by this, but decides to act responsibly by guiding the troubled child rather than act callously like he did in canon.

How well does it match the trope?
