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.

ElusiveBadwolf: I loved this book so much! It's a shame that i already came to the end of this. I really enjoyed the story, and i liked it how everything became in the end. It was a great book and i can say that you are a great writer too. Keep it that way and i think you can make it in the writing business!

Giuliana Cassetta: My face is full of tears, I never cried like now with a book or even a movie. I loved every single chapter. I truly don't know what to say, I'm out of words and my eyes hurt from crying. Such an bittersweet story, it's so wonderful. One of my favorites for sure. Keep it up!

Hali McGowan: when will the third book be done? I am absolutely hooked. I red the first two books within less than a week. I'm itching for the third one. The plotline is absolutely wonderful. I've never been much for sci-fi ish books. but you've got me hooked on this series

Sara Grover: Being that this is your first story and I assume first draft, a lot of little mistakes are common, we all have made them; little things like your instead of you're, missed capitalization, missing punctuation, etc. As for the plot, I have a lot of questions and I did leave comments on certain sect...

Valeria Rocco Lo Presti: I have to confess that I read the book in less than a week. I became obsessed with the characters as I was entering to their world. It is definitely a must for those who enjoy a pleasant reading with amazing writing skills!

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors. I felt that the main character was a bit under and over powered, as it fought for balance. The last few chapters felt too f...

dd1226: I love reading about other countries and I think this story about Cambodia after Polpot creates awareness of the tragedy that happened there and the actions of the U.N. to hold elections. The heroine of the story is easy to relate to, a modern, middleaged woman looking for an adventure, wanting t...

CookieMonster911: The story overall was an adventure that is appealing to any age. The way the characters develop adds a more human characteristic to the novel. The writing style itself is amazing because you can learn every character's thoughts and emotions. The awkward love triangle and jerk moments adds to the ...

ArgyrisMetaxas: Thrilling story which builds layer ontop of layer. A few mis spellings every few chapters. What I found special was that it took a modern day problem and took it to its logical conclusion and plays this realism with gritting precision. I'm always on edge ready to shout from adrenaline. This is gr...

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.
