    Title: Welcome to Hogwarts 1949
    Author: Ohyeah100
    Rating: T
    Genre: Humor/Drama (but more like a Mystery/Suspence/Thriller)
    Pairing: None
    Chapters: 29
    Words: 123,294

    Status: Abandoned

    Summary: Harry is accidently transported fifty years back in time through a fluke with the mauraders map. Here he runs into and befriends Tom Riddle, hoping to find his only weakness. No Slash.
    Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2550563/1/

    This is for some reason labeled as Humor/Drama, but it is rightfully a combination of mystery and thriller, starting off in the middle of Harry's 6th year and moving on to 1949, Riddle's 6th year at Hogwarts.

    In short, Harry is stuck in 1949 until he learns something important about Tom Riddle. They become sort of friends but they don't exactly trust each other. This is not a redemption fic - Harry and Tom are chummy with each other and hang together most of the time, while beneath that facade, they are desperately trying to figure each other's plans and motives.

    Tom's character is great - sly, cunning, charming but very dark already evil. As for Harry, he starts as a non-whinny variant of canon!Harry, but is turning darker and more Slytherin along the way.

    Downsides include somewhat vague and stupid time-travel method (Marauder’s Map?) and lots of typing/spelling/every other kind of errors. This can also be slow at times, but remember, this is more like a suspense/thriller than your standard action/adventure fight against the evil bullshit.

    Ah! The problems with experimenting with untested magic! :twisted:
    The grammar in places is a little off too...

    it would make an interesting fic if it didn't have so many mistakes.

    Uh...I'm surprised you didn't link this in Unrecommended FanFiction, or even Awesomely Bad FanFics, IP. Honestly, this fic isn't worth reading, but the summary was good.

    Why? The only thing missing here is better spelling... everything else is OK, especially after a few chapters, when Harry settles down.

    It's maybe because I'm not native english speaker that I don't mind spelling and typing errors as much as you people do...

    I like the way the author shows the change harry is going through.

    This fic doesn't belong in the unrecommended fanfiction. Sure, the start was a bit stupid, with harry being transported through the map but it's all good from there. Character interaction is interesting and Tom Riddle is exactly how i assumed him to be, though i don't see harry tripping him and not getting anything in return. It's really a good story if you don't mind the typoes that much..

    The map idea isnt too bad since it explained that the map probably held magic its creators didnt even know they put there. He probably meant that it was connected to the castle in some way... so castle and the map did it... anyway...

    It looks really messy in some places but not unreadable. I enjoyed it, really. I havnt read all the posted chapter but im nearly there. Its readable, yes, but it does get a bit hard on the eyes after reading it for a long period of time.

    Like the whole idea but the grammar is just way to off to read further, atleast the author could try and get a beta..

    If you are able to overlook the grammar mistakes than you´ll have a great time with it. Harry slowly changes and I wouldnt be suprised if he became some sort of mini Riddle. Definitely a must read.

    Oldmagic the stories you mean are from Niger Aquila

    I've offered to spellcheck for her so that the chapters become more readable.... I'd hate for a good story like that to not get the attention it deserves. Btw, she's only 15. :O_O:

    Good on ya. That will definitely beef it up a bit. Finally got to the end. It's a good story and now with Aura spellchecking, grammar, ect... well, it'll be much better. :D

    It doesn't matter how old you are, you should be able to spell correctly when you post a story.

    Yup. She should know how to spell and use spellcheck. But one thing that really bothers me is that she's american... :O_O:

    If I ignore the errors it's o.k. Not the best but definity;y not the worst I've seen. Oh and my oppinion on the spelling is that it is horrible but I have a bit of a problem with grammer and some spelling my self, not that bad mind you, but still, I can't complain.

    This story has been finally updated, and quite a good chapter it is too (though there a quite a few noticeable spelling errors and such).

    Just thought I'd let you know.

    Yeah, it's a good story. I'm glad that it's not abandoned. I like how Harry seems to be turning dark because he believes that he can 'fix' it. That when he goes back to his time, nothing will have stayed that way. It makes it vary believable.
