Or so he thinks. A squib turns around his life and he suddenly finds himself behind the mask of a guardian. Fate had other plans, however. Harry becomes the very thing he despises and begins a cruel game which blurs the line between good and evil. Post HBP, no Hocruxes, Dark!Harry, Anti-Hero!Harry, AU [80% Complete] Link: Masked Marauder A story about Harry being trained after Dumbledore's death and becoming more and more ruthless as the story goes on. It slightly reminds me of "A Cadmean Victory" in a lot of ways, but it definitely stands on its own. No library-material imo, especially because of the at times awfully cringe-y dialogue, but the last 10 or so chapters are quite interesting to read. OK, it hits AWFULLY hard on the "everyone hates Harry" cliché and a few more and it did actually annoy me at times. But it might be a good timewaster for some, hence I'm posting it here. Moved out of the "Almost Recommended" thread.
