    Blackpool a fic about the life and times of one Regulus Black has been known to make me repeatedly cry like a bitch.

    Sure you've heard of these before:
    To Shape and Change byBlueowl
    Hey, Fred by hedwidgeon
    Survivor by atruwriter
    The latter being more angst/tragedy

    If you're looking for depressing original fiction, might I recommend The Magicians by Lev Grossman

    The First Day is an oldie that covers the first year or so after the war. I haven't read it in some time, but it's one of the first stories I remember really enjoying despite it delivering the gut punch at times.

    The Substitute by BajaB is a good one that I keep going back to when I'm in the right mood for it.

    To piggyback on Paradise's post, pretty much everything by The Divine Comedian is sad and well-written. I'd suggest Calibration and Two Things.

    I never fail to tear up when reading The Asking Price by Garamonder. One of my favorite fanfics of all time.
