Time Shall Not Mend is one in the LoPiverse series of Harry Potter slash fanfic e-books by the author A.J. Hall. It is a crossover between HP and the Vorkosigan universe.

Summary from the author: "A thousand years away and half across the galaxy a bereaved young woman stalks through a cocktail party thinking: "Anywhere but here". Meanwhile, back on Earth and in the dying days of the struggle against Voldemort a plague has been unleashed on the wizarding community. A potion to cure it exists - but a crucial ingredient is a plant which grows only on a remote mountain in Scotland. And that mountain has an almost impenetrable defence around it. Worlds are about to collide. Time Shall Not Mend is a cross-over between the Harry Potterverse and the Vorkosigan novels of Lois McMaster Bujold. No profit is being made, and no infringement of rights intended, by this work. This work was conceived as a birthday tribute to E.H. Smith, whose trilogy Marks and Scars, Without Enchantment, and No Great Magic first crossed the Vorkosiverse with the Potterverse, to stunning effect."

The main Vorkosigan character is Ekaterin Vorsoisson Vorkosigan.

Conceived as a birthday tribute to E.H. Smith, this crossover is action-packed and entertaining. This series of stories features Ekaterin and Draco as the main characters, although many of the Vorkosigan 'verse characters appear. (Raveninthewind at Crack Van[1])
[with Marks and Scars & sequels] Two Harry Potter crossovers, which were the stories that introduced me to Bujold in the first place. AJH's prose in particular is spectacular (I love Gregor's use of the 'For God's sake, let us sit upon the ground...' line), but they're all very good. (Philomytha)[2]
