And if any of you doubt how much of a Harry Potter fan I am, well… At least half of my Followers will back up my adamant and fiery love for the series.
This is “Dumbledore’s Army and the Year of Darkness”. It is a fantastic piece of work that actually spans more pages and chapters than even the longest Harry Potter book (which is Deathly Hallows, by the way). It follows Dumbledore’s Army during the final year of Hogwarts that happened while the Golden Trio were gallivanting about.
The characterization is the most thorough I have seen in any work of fanfiction and it’s almost insulting to call it fanfiction because holy shit. Also, the depiction of the Houses of Hogwarts are the best and most unbiased I have ever seen.
I read this several several months ago and everyone else should go read it right now. At the very least bookmark it and plan to read it later.
