Harry Potter Fanfiction - Burn to Shine (00)  
Right so, finally getting around to putting these up. Chapter 2 is still being edited and Ch3 is on its way. For the record, I think this will be around 20(?) chapters. But for now: voila!

(sorry about the excessive author-notes, they just kept growing!)

Quick Summary: Harry Potter is the wizarding world's hero. But when Voldemort discovers a dark magic that could turn his greatest threat into a valuable asset, will Harry be able to hold onto who he is, or submit to the shadows within? (Creature feature ...eventually)

Set in 7th year, but follows canon only till the end of Goblet of Fire.

Title is a song by Ben Harper

Pairings: Harry/Draco, Sirius/Remus, Hermione/Ron. Implied Voldemort/Draco, Voldemort/Death Eaters


-Spoilers for books (and movies, I guess), 1-4 with occasional 5-6 spoilers for largely irrelevant things like character names and monsters and things. Not plot-related stuff. (I think/hope).

-Rated R-18 (for later chapters) Also known as NC-17 (for Americans.)

-This story contains - obligatory capitals: SLASH! Also known as YAOI, also known as males having sweaty sex with OTHER MALES. If you don't want to read that kind of stuff, don't read the fic, don't complain to me if you do and it grosses you out, that's just silly on your part. There are also issues of non-consensual sex. Run while you still can.

Other warning - This fic is written by an amateur writer (me). I'm getting better but please be patient with my lack of experience, it is beta'd by the lovely mimei, but I am often stubborn, so any remaining mistakes are completely on my head. Also, any canon inconsistencies that aren't deliberate, I apologise for, I have a bad memory for some things. If you think I've missed something, just point it out in a comment or email. And I also apologise for any characters being OOC, I have tried hard to give reasons for any personality deviations from the canon, but I'm sure I'll fail at keeping them all in line, so sorry.

Comments and constructive criticism welcome, (but don't go overboard ppl, I have beta's for that.) Now, (finally) on with the show!

Darkness; speared only by odd flickering light of fire.

Shuffling footsteps, and fearful breathing.

Frigid stillness, then movement of air, a wave of a hand.

Bowing, barely lit by flame.

A voice, trembling, muffled by a mouth pressed to robes and a stone floor; “We have it.”


Slowly, a cold silver voice replies, “Then set all in motion.”

Bowing, scraping, and footsteps hurrying away from the laughter that rises, tearing at the air.

Finally, stillness again, save for a few words of dire portent;

“Let us see if he remains their hero, after this...”

I know! I know! I'm working on it! It doesn't help with the shitty wrist RSI problems at the moment though. I'm spending tonight offline in hopes of getting some work on it done. :/

I know that I should, but I'm really picky about where and the main places I like are Skyehawke, which is invite only. Or Restricted Section, which doesn't like me until this gets perverse enough. I do need to go on a few more searches to find some other comms. I'm sure there must be some on LJ that would be good, but... eeeeeffooort. :P

Ah well :( good luck, I hope it gets better soon.

Invite only? wtf is up with the HP slash world? That's just elitism.

Same here!

Oh, it's not a HP only archive, it's any writing at all, but there is a large HP contingent. I fully could go over to fiction alley (.org, I think) but I hate the way the stories are formatted, so really, it's just me being the snob. :P
