A Secret is Meant to be Kept

When Ron lashes out at Hermione and gets them into a sticky situation, Hermione transports herself back in time. But the Marauders Era was a bit farther than she expected. She must figure out how to reverse the spell, deal with falling in love all over again and fight against some of the most notorious Death Eaters, who are inside the castle's walls. Not as intruders, but as classmates.

4. Face the Future, Find the Future

Hermione spent her days in the manor consulting book after book, searching for anything.  A reference, a cross-reference, something on the spell that put her here, to no avail.  Occasionally reading of unexplained murders, of both muggles and wizards, gave Hermione a sense of twisted nostalgia.  It reminded her of her own time, her own friends and family, but it also focused her.  How was she to get back home to help Harry?  How had her own timeline progressed?  Was it already too late?  These thoughts nagged at her, day and night.  Their owls had come and gone, but Hermione was uncharacteristically not enthused to be returning to Hogwarts.  It may have been a second home for her at one time, but she knew, this time, wouldn't be the same.  Everywhere she looked, she would be reminded of her time, her home, everything and everyone that she loved. 

James was up to his usual antics, running around the manor, often accompanied by Sirius, sometimes Remus, and occasionally Peter, the boys seemed to only remain still during family dinners.  Despite the loving and welcome environment that was the Potter household, Hermione felt secluded.  James was more than excited to learn that he had a sister, and the boys were itching to greet their new playmate.  But, Hermione had no interest.  She remained quiet at dinner time, usually only speaking when spoken to.  

She often found herself connecting with Remus, who could also be found with his nose in a book, ignoring the rowdy boys.  James would always make an effort to ask Hermione to join in on any of their activities, but she naturally denied them.  Sirius grew tired of asking and often just stared blankly at Hermione, sometimes studying her.  At points, Hermione had the time to appreciate his stormy grey eyes that were accompanied by the black locks that profiled his face.  At other times, she couldn't bear to look at him, cringing at future she knows he will someday be forced to face.
