Summary: While waiting to travel by floo to #12 Grimmauld Place for Christmas, Hermione Granger is tempted to explore the Headmaster’s Office. What she finds there sends her twenty years back in time. The device can work in reverse—with a catch. She must spend nearly four months in the Marauders’ time before she can be sent home! During this time her sense of duty and her heart are sorely tested as she seeks to keep her future intact in the face of a deep love that develops between herself and Sirius Black. Once she is brought home, Hermione has a whole new set of challenges as she must adjust to life in her own time as well as help prepare Harry and their friends for the final confrontation with Voldemort.

Word Count: Variable, though at Chapter 40 it's @ 125,000
Additional Notes: This story is AU after the end of Order of the Phoenix. Some minor elements (staff, student positions, for example) are taken from Half Blood Prince, but they should not be considered as reflecting HBP canon. Any chapter(s) referring to HBP are marked with spoilers.
While I originally began to post this story at LJ, I had a habit throughout the month of May of updating this story daily, and didn't want to spam my friends list--not to mention how frustrating it is to hand-code the HTML for 3-5,000 word chapters every day. I apologize to anyone that dislikes fanfiction.net
