Author’s Summary: When a magical backlash causes a rift in space and time, Mary Jane Potter gains the memories of her male counterpart. With only a few years before her inevitable death, Mary works to defeat Voldemort and keep her friends and family safe. Year 3 & 4 complete. Rated M for language, mature themes, and language.
My Thoughts: Gryffindor’s Girl is a really cool concept! The whole “main character trying to change the past using prior knowledge” idea has been done over and over again, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen it used without time travel, and it usually features bashing of some kind, and this fic stands apart from all the previous versions by having neither time travel or bashing. Besides that, I think all the characters are great! Mary Potter is an incredibly compelling protagonist, and I think this story might feature one of the best versions of Ron I’ve ever seen. I just really like this fic, and I think everyone should give it a shot. However, I’ll admit that I’m not caught up yet, so it might start sucking at some point during Year 5. I hope that isn’t the case though.
