    Even mentioning that Cadmean piece of mediocrity in the same sentence as the other two stories means no Christmas presents for you this year. You've brought this upon yourself.

    Wow, this story is something else, couldn't stop until i read it all, such a shame that it's abandoned. Definitely became my favourite Dark!Harry story.

    I'm pretty sure that Cadmean victory was partly inspired by Control, but the author lacked the cohesiveness of plot to match Control. It wasn't enough to keep my attention for more than a few chapters, so i may be wrong and there might have been an upswing in quality, but that's not something that often happens in fanfiction, so I'm doubtful.

    The reason that Santi's BWL might remind you of Control and Cadmean victory is that the hook of HP & the BWL is that Harry is going to make the transition from prodigy to dark wizard, as the summary reads

    Control is set after that transformation has already occured, and Cadmean victory is also showing that 'slippery slope' argument to using darker methods, though admittedly with not as much subtlety or buildup, but it still achieves its aim.

    As long as you add something meaningful to the thread (i.e. not "PLS UPDATE") you can post on any story in the library if you have an opinion on it.

    This is the one story that I continue to re-read. I particularly admire how the author depicted Bellatrix and her take on Dark!Harry. It's a shame it's abandoned, a definite 5/5.

    5/5 for me I really loved that harry has control of his magic before hogwarts and I have always been a fan of harry and tonks romance.
