    Summary: Sequel to "Exit Light, Enter Night."
    Link: Take My Hand at ficwad and at patronuscharm

    While checking out the new posts, I saw MemoryKing's latest entry in a thread at the Restricted section, and after reading the discussed fic, yet again, I clicked on BigD's profile to search for another forgotten piece of his, and "Take My Hand" as a sequel was the obvious choice for a re-read.

    Imagine my surprise that the sequel of one of the better Dark!Harry stories is missing from the Library. A rather fast search, I must admit, didn't turn anything, and so I'm creating my first post in the "For Review" section hoping I haven't missed the story somehow, as I'm still wondering how it hasn't found a place in here as of yet.

    In summary, there isn't much to say beside it has the same delicious dark feeling from its prequel, and has, arguably, one of the best or rather most logical Harry/Lily intereaction I've ever read. That is not much by itself, and yet in those troubled times, when the regularly udating Harry/Draco fics are over 1.5k(stat lifted from Vlad's post in here,) a fic of that sort seems like a precious gem in a pool of mud, to me at least.

    edit: forgot to rate it... a solid 5/5 of course if it wasn't clear enough from what I said above.

    Look at the name, it should be obvious.
    It's smut written by Big D, there is no doubt that it belongs in the library. The Harry/Lily is just an added bonus. Now, if he would just hurry up and write the third part, where Harry kills everyone for the lulz.

    Well I'm shocked.

    When browsing through the For Review section I didn't expect this story to be sitting here. Big D is one of my favorite authors, and I haven't found a single one of his works that I didn't like. This story isn't an exception.

    Not sure why there's a lack of comments here, but I'll throw in my two cents.

    I admit I didn't particularly like the prequel to this fic. It was well-written and featured a very believable mental breakdown on Harry's part, but the brutality of the rape was just too dark for my tastes.

    This fic, however, is closer to conventional smut, as the sex is (mostly) consensual. The characterization is what really sets it apart from the pack. Lily is completely fleshed out (rimshot), and this is one of the best characterizations of deranged!Harry I've seen.

    The final touch of brilliance is the ambiguity of the setting, leaving the reader unsure whether this is real or a symptom of Harry's madness.
    Easily a 5/5

    I am getting there
    I agree 5/5. Got a boner before the sex started.

    It's Big D. 5/5. Sad that he has gone dark.
