......Short little dialogue one shot about time travel in Harry Potter. Tell me what you think :)
Warnings: none
Disclaimer: I don't own anything

......"Time turner, Mr. Potter? Are you serious? You break into my house, destroy my newest batch of Dreamless Sleep, search through my library and then lie to me about why you're here. All for an object that's not even here. Tell me one good reason I shouldn't bend you over my knee and tan your hide."
......"You're my professor and it would be an abuse of power?"
......"I am not your professor now, Mr. Potter. I am an owner of the property you've broken into and I am well within my rights to set you straight."
......"You just don't want me to save Sirius!"
...... "You cannot save him. There's no use going back in time, your Godfather is dead."
......"But if I could go back and change things, he wouldn't be."
......"You don't really understand the flow of time, do you? If you were meant to go back in time, your Godfather would be alive now and you wouldn't be sniffling on my sofa."
......"But it'll be just like Buckbeak, we saved him."
......"Yes, you did. You didn't change anything though, that pest never died. It was never executed. When someone dies, there's no going back."
......"Well, then he's probably not dead."
......"Yes, he is Mr. Potter."
......"How do you know?"
......"Because I'm not letting you do this. I know that at the end of the day, you're going back to your relatives and this nonsense about time turners will be forgotten."
......"That doesn't make any sense! Why do we have time turners then?"
......"You did use one to save Buckbeack, didn't you?"
......"Yes but you said he never died, we needn't have bothered. I really don't understand this time travelling thing."
......"Time travel, Mr. Potter? Time travel doesn't exist. Think about it, what would be the point of life, what would be the point of making choices if you could go back in time and change it all? Why would we bother to make hard decisions, why would we agonize over our mistakes, if we could easily repair them? Why do you think there are thousands of people in the world who are unhappy about something they've done, or haven't done? In everyone's life there comes a time when you stop and think to yourself, if I could just go back and change how things are, just once. But you can't. Your life choices don't only affect you, they have impact on everyone. Time turners are meant to provide you with the opportunity to do what's necessary."
......"Like fulfilling the destiny or something?"
......"No, I don't believe in destiny. We create our own lives, no one writes them for us."
......"Maybe that would be easier."
......"Maybe but then what would be the point? You could blame the hardships you go through on fate, yes, but then you could never take credit for the success either."
......"True. Thank you, professor. I think I understand it a bit better now."
......"Does that mean you won't try to use that time turner to save your Godfather?"
......"Do we know he's really dead?"
......"Dear Merlin, give me patience."
