    Title: Lord of Caer Azkaban
    Author: Rorschach's Blot

    One of my favorite Harry/Azkaban fics. Not quite a Harry in Azkaban fic, but the interesting plot twist brings Azkaban into a completely new perspective.

    It starts out strong, but it's really sagging hard. Hoping the author will be able to pull it out of it's slump.

    I just wish more authors could come up with original ideas for filler chapters in between the action, instead of almost EVERYONE using the "Harry goes back to Hogwarts,-- even-though he's a veritable king/lord/rich as hell, and powerful enough to smack down Dumbles"

    I mean hell, show him building alliances, show him doing cool stuff. Instead a majority of them just ship him back to Hogwarts, where he'll be learning how to make people tap dance in DADA, totally ignoring that the just wrote Harry spending the summer becoming as strong as Merlin!!!

    Er.. sorry for the rant... that just irks me when ppl do that, lol.

    Touché. I have to agree with you though, it was going great but its rather tapered off in later chapters. The going back to Hogwarts thing is something I also agree on, which is why I have that part all planned out in EoH.

    Considering all the "Harry goes to Azkaban, aquires god-like power, tells everyone to suck-it when he's proven innocent and then Dumbledore pulls some manipulation that forces him to go back to Hogwarts" stories out there I'm surprised no one has done it yet. Of course most of the authors that write those fics plan to have Harry forgive everyone in the end. I really hate when they do that.

    Don't Worry

    In my fic, stranger in a strange land, I will have harry return to conquer hogwarts. In fact, I have already written the chapter (I wrote that chapter first and then began to shape the rest of the fic around it). If you want I could post it here, though it won't make sense without the rest of the fic backing it up. Let's just say that by the end of my story, Hogwarts will be rubble, Dumbledore and Voldemort dead, and the Hogwarts Academy of Military Science in the old schools stead.

    By all accounts, post once you get a 1st chapter ready, sounds delightful.

    Just did

    Just posted the link for the first two chapters in the Dark Harry but remains lightsided category. The title is stranger in a strange land.
    P.S. I just realized there are a couple of lines in chap 2 that I need to change.
    Hope you like it!

    I have enjoyed this quite a bit, several humorous parts, but looks like he has writers block right now. Personally I think some of the OMAKEs are quite good. Plus I like the whole Unspeakable Arthur bit, plus the Ghost and Phantom. Not to mention its got a funny and well written dobby (why does he get ignored so much, he's loyal to harry, plus he is pretty powerful, look what he did to Malfoy Sr.) Not to mention Harry is progressing and not jumping to super strength over night.

    going back to hogwarts

    at first when i read this fic i really liked it but it started going down hill really fast once he went back to hogwarts no matter how many times i read fics like this it never fails to annoy me when the author has harry get betrayed and put in azkaban and then he goes right back to the people who put him there when he could just burn the whole place down with the power and armies that he gets.

    but i got off track i liked this fic in the begining only but his new fic "Make a Wish" is a lot better
