Tom Riddle and the Snorelacks

By LadyRavenJade

Adventure / Humor

Chapter 1

First chapter

Tom Riddle and the Snorelacks.

Sum: Harry becomes the Divination teacher in the 1940s and takes Tom on a field trip. This is crack. Nuff said.

This may or may not be funny I'm not sure, if anyone does think it's at least mildly amusing let me know and I'll put the next chapter. If it sucks let me know that too.

This chapter has now been Betaed.

Tom's P.O.V.

I once again found myself almost begging Headmaster Dippet to let me stay at Hogwarts for the summer.

"I wouldn't be any trouble Sir, if I could just stay here for the-"

He cut me off as if I was a silly little boy that was being purposely annoying.

"Come now Tom. You know there aren't any of the teachers that could stay here for the whole year-"

"Who's staying here for the whole year?"

Cut in my Divination Professor, who was looking absent minded again. Harry Potter was very strange man, what with showing up out of nowhere, and pretending to be from the future. No one believed him of course, but when he made some accurate predictions he was deemed a seer and became the Divination teacher.

"Hmm, oh! Professor Potter. No one is, you see-"

"I did last year, though I'm thinking of going somewhere this year. Was Tom going to be staying this year?"

Sometimes he talked with a strange casual innocence and then threw out something that completely baffled the person he was talking to. Naturally I was weary.

"No Harry-"

Dippet was getting flustered. And the Headmaster lied to me when he said no one was staying here last year. He will pay.

"You really should let the children stay here that want to, Headmaster. You do them a great disservice."

Surprising. No one had ever taken my side before on that issue.

The headmaster sputtered.

He was getting there.

"I could take some children with me on my trip. This school doesn't have enough field trips at all."

The Headmaster's jaw dropped.

"The school doesn't have any field trips!"

Almost there.

"No? That's not good. Well I'll gather children to come with me anyways this summer."

And he has reached the level of bafflement.

"You can't do that-"

Wait a moment, what did Potter just say again?

"Sure I can! I just need to ask their parent's permission and I can do anything I want in the summer. You don't have any authorities than Headmaster."

I joined the Headmaster in bafflement.

"I'll start making some permission forms up! Thank you for the idea Headmaster."

And Harry Potter cheerfully walked off humming. There are times when I admire that man.

ianwatson: The comedy is original and genuinely funny, I have laughed out loud many times reading this book. But the story and the plot are also really engaging.

Beloved Q Medina: At first I figured it was another genre fiction book and didn't have any expectations, but by the first few chapters I found myself engrossed in Sid's journey. Some say that genre fiction is predictable, or not as substantial as literary fiction, but this novel was anything but that. I found myse...

Talon Richey: The answer to that question is NO! I absolutely loved the book, it has a way of lifting the magic right of the page and into the imagination.

Kasey Pinney: This book had me from the beginning. I never came across a part I didn't want to read or that didn't entertain me. The characters are well developed and the internal conversations fit the book well.

Jasmine Chow: As I read this story, I was reminded some what of Terry Pratchett, especially some descriptions of politics and economics. The sci-fic setting is quite intriguing. Writing style is quite lovely and grew on me slowly. I was also slightly reminded of Mark Twain, especially his book A Connecticut Ya...

cassandrab: Delightful SciFi (for a change)! I am not a SciFi fan: mostly the genre is far too dystopic for me. This book (written by a high-school friend) is, on the other hand, generally upbeat. Yes, Earth's future is threatened. But Earth has a chance to plan a response. And (spoiler alert) ultimately win...
