Temporary Temporal Displacement - Aftermath
Harry stepped into the office and looked around for someone to report his latest adventure to.
One man looked up in surprise before looking around at his colleagues. "How did you get in here?" he asked.
Harry raised an eyebrow. "Through the door." He said as he pointed at the door behind him that led to the round entry room with the spinning blue lights. He then shrugged. "I would actually advise you to look into better security."
The Unspeakables just stared at him.
"Anyway, I came here because I don’t know who else to report some changes to the time line caused by my inadvertent temporal displacement."
The man blinked. "Changes. To the time line?" he repeated with a bit of a lost look. They now had the attention of the other three people in the room.
"Yes." Harry frowned and rubbed the back of his neck. "Not really sure how many changes. I probably need to ask some questions to see how far reaching they are." His frown deepened. "You're Bode, right?"
The four Unspeakables eyes widened. "How did you know that?" Bode asked.
Harry sighed. "You are one of the changes." He gestured to a chair. "May I? I got a feeling this is going to take a while."
Bode nodded. "Of course. Let me…" he looked at his co-workers. "Anyone know the procedure on this? I've never had anyone actually report themselves." He suddenly grinned. "It's rather exciting."
Harry laughed a bit nervously as he repeated, "Yeah, exciting." He shook his head as he seated himself. "Especially seeing people I know were killed in a war that as far as I can tell didn’t happen." He sighed again and mumbled, "Cedric Diggory nearly gave me a heart attack."
A new voice came from the door that if Harry remembered correctly led to the brain room. "You should start with what the young man was doing before being transported through time. How he was transported and in which direction. How long he was there. Who he interacted with and in what way, and how he returned. Then have him innumerate the differences he has noticed so far."
Bode nodded and said, "Yes sir. Thank you sir."
The man snorted, turned and exited the room, obviously returning to whatever he had been doing before.
Harry smirked and asked, "You got a Pensive?"
When the Pensive was provided Harry placed his memories of the last hour and a half in it and joined Bode and one of the other Unspeakables in viewing it. They then spent the next six hours dissecting his every word and action while in the past.
Harry learned what bode and Ms. Smith, as he was told to call the other Unspeakable, knew of those he spoke to as well as others in the Great Hall.
The Lovegoods had three children including the eldest who was named Luna. Phil ran the Quibbler, a well respected if slightly quirky weekly paper, and Selene would actually have been the one to deal with any time distortion issues as that was her specialty but she was on vacation with the family in the far east looking for some animal or other.
Malfoy had two children, Draco and Aurora. Lucius had gone through Auror training and was now working part time as a solicitor. Draco worked in the improper use of magic office and was highly ranked on the dueling circuit, thus the exhibition this morning. As far as Harry could tell without meeting them they had both had a major attitude adjustment.
James Potter and Sirius Black were senior Aurors, as was Harry. Lily was assistant Charms teacher at Hogwarts and had no other children. Harry was not married and as far as anyone knew had no children of his own. But at Thirty one it seemed there was still time for such things.
The Unspeakables knew nothing of Remus Lupin, but they were thrilled to get a glimpse of the world renowned, but somewhat reclusive, Potions Master, Severus Snape as a child. They were unaware of him ever teaching other than taking an apprentice every five years or so. The masters he turned out were some of the best in the world. They did know that he was still friends with the Potter family.
They were extremely excited at Harry comment, "I learned all I know about potions and a lot of defense from him in the other time line." He shrugged. "He taught at Hogwarts for years."
The Longbottom family was almost as large as the Weasley family. As were the Bones and LeStrange families. In fact the Wizarding population was now more than twice what it was before Harry's little trip through time.
When he finally got the nerve to ask, he found out that Tom Riddle had been arrested and placed in Azkaban in the mid seventies. His arrest was credited to Aurors Edger Bones, current Minister of Magic, Alistair Moody, current head of the DMLE, and Charles Potter, current head Auror, as well as several members of the Order of the Phoenix including Lucius Malfoy, Sirius Black and Bellatrix LeStrange.
Harry almost chocked he laughed so hard. When he got his breath back he couldn’t help but comment, "I really didn’t think they would listen."
It was decided that Harry's unintended meddling in time had only made positive changes and no charges would be made against him. The old man from the other room offered him a job and as Harry knowing he would be bored with the simple Auror work accepted.
Being an Unspeakable helped him integrate into the new time line and to get to know his family and friends. It also and allowed him to track down and destroy Voldemort's Horcruxes so that when the mad man died in Azkaban three years later they would be assured of him not coming back.
Harry eventually married Luna Lovegood and enjoyed a long and happy life full of love and peace.
AN: Had to think about the flip side, if something went wrong, so here is a little Alt Ending drabble. Enjoy and review as that is the only payment I will receive.
Temporary Temporal Displacement - Alt Ending
Harry was shocked when he reappeared standing where he had spoken to Severus in what was left Hogwart's Great Hall. As far as he could see: all that he could see, was rubble.
It was the same everywhere he went. The Ministry, Diagon Alley, all of London, Surry and Godric's Hallow were burned out husks. There wasn’t even ash left of the Burrow.
It was nothing short of total world devastation.
Harry finally found the only other living being left when he Apparated to the grave yard Voldemort was reborn in.
Thus began the absolute last battle for world domination.
