So I'm really in the mood for a well written darker fic. Do you know of any decent evil!harry stories?! (Bonus points for a happy ending with Draco? Lol )
Hi! I’m so sorry but I rarely read dark Harry!! The only one with straight up EVIL Harry I can think of is Shadows of Seduction by KittyAugust (2.5K), a short fic from last year’s erised. I remember thinking it was super well done, even though I don’t usually go for this sort of thing!
Summary: In a final desperate attempt to overthrow the Dark Lord and his newest protégée, one Harry Potter, the Order sends in its last hope and Potter’s last known weakness. Draco Malfoy.
Oh! Also I love Ragnarok by Lomonaaeren (52K)! Both Harry and Draco are extremely powerful and badass and although they are certainly not the good guys by any stretch of the imagination, and they do some very bad things, I wouldn’t call Harry “evil” exactly. I mean… he was sort of turned evil. Although I guess you can say that about most villains, so… yeah, actually. He’s probably just evil. Together with Draco though! XD
Summary: Draco, at thirty, is the youngest member of the Wizengamot, and thinks he’s arrived at the height of power. But that’s before he learns the secret of Ragnarok, the elite corps of wizards that serves the Wizengamot.
And now I’ve just remembered the Charming Universe series (286K), also by Lomonaaeren! I love this fic!!! Harry doesn’t WANT to become a Dark Lord, but the Ministry is so annoying and ill-intentioned that he has no other choice. I would call this Harry grey rather than evil, but he definitely kills some people who wrong him sooooo maybe my moral compass is a bit skewed XD. In my defense, I’ve been binging Game of Thrones for two weeks now. Compared to those guys, this Harry is positively… charming ;). AND THE DRARRY IS GREAT. I love it when they’re both super powerful <3
Summary: Harry doesn’t really like the way things are going in the wizarding world. But who’s going to do something about it?…Him, that’s who! (Or, how Harry became a Benevolently Snarky Dark Lord).
(Apologies for totally fucking up my normal rec list format. I intended this to be a short reply saying I couldn’t think of anything… but then I kept thinking of things XD)
