I just can't quite bring myself to give it an uninhibited 5/5, so I have to round down, probably because there's not a lot of fun in it to break up the other parts, but this isn't meant to be a fun story. Besides, I've always been fond of AUs. This is a story that combines canon with two different AUs, each from the author's other stories. All characters are adults and approximately late 40s. Canon: Harry is the Chief Auror. He, Ginny, Ron, and Hermione end up traveling to Dark!Harry's dimension after a fiasco with an artifact from the DoM. AU1: Harry leads a task force that was initially formed to catch Death Eaters. I'd call this a Grey!Harry - he's on the side of good, but he used some darker magics during the war with Voldemort. This AU comes from the author's other story, For Lack of a Bezoar, in which Ron died during 6th year. Harry, Hermione, and Snape from this AU travel to Dark!Harry's dimension after a fiasco with an artifact from the DoM. AU2: Harry is an evil son-of-a-bitch and Voldemort's right hand man. This particular version of Dark!Harry hails from the author's series, The Downward Spiral Saga. The majority of the story takes place in this world, and it is a very dark place. You DO NOT need to read those earlier works for this story to make sense. The above basics should be enough to give you everything you need. However 'For Lack of a Bezoar' is relatively short and might be worth your time to see if you like the author's writing style. Downward Spiral Saga is not for everyone but if you legit like Dark!Harry then hey, there you go. The story is essentially this: OMGWTF WE NEED TO GTFO! And then both groups trying very, very hard to get back home before Dark!Harry hunts them down and murders them after engaging in a spot of horrific torture. Because Dark!Harry's world is one in which Voldemort controls an empire spanning the globe. And yes - Dark!Harry can be engaging in his own way, otherwise people wouldn't have read an entire series featuring him. Go check it out. Dunno if the author had a significant chunk of this pre-written or if they are actually good enough to have churned out 130k of reasonable good quality writing in 3 months, but rock on for complete stories.
