Title: Antithesis Author: Oceanbreeze7 Rating: T Genre: Unlisted (Probably Tragedy/Angst/Drama) Status: Complte Library category: Dark Arts/AU Pairings: Harry/Luna (story says there are no pairings at the beginning... Spoiler Harry definitively says that he loved Luna after she dies, so it's basically the setup of a relationship without the payoff ) Summary: Link:https://archiveofourown.org/works/7322935/chapters/16633456 This is probably my favorite HP story from the past few months. It has a lot of things that would usually bother me, but it was executed well enough for me to not mind terribly much. Fanon things like blood adoptions. The main differences are that Lily/James survive the attack, and the Lestranges don't attack the Longbottoms. This lets Voldemort be revived much earlier than in canon, as Bellatrix was considerably more competent than Peter, and he has a presence pre-Hogwarts. WBWL story where Harry winds up with the Dursleys, but done in a more believable way than normal (he isn't instantly foisted off - it's only after there are legitimate threats to his family that they all go into hiding, and they only do it after asking him if he is OK with it). Eventually the Dursley's kick him off to an orphanage, which is attacked by the Lestranges who end up adopting him and he's raised by them and Voldemort. Issues : While the writing is above average for fanfiction, it can get overwrought on occasion and sometimes it straddles the line of pretentiousness (read the last line of the summary for instance). Some people may be bothered that parts of Fantastic Beasts are used as canon, but I don't really see the issue with it. The first 7-8 chapters are extremely angsty, but the story picks up after that. Harry is given an over the top, pretentious name (but that's kinda fitting considering who adopts him). Pros: Pretty much everyone in the story displays a level of competency and self-awareness that is refreshing. There's no to very little bashing.
