Harry Potter and the Fuck Boy Dark Lord TheLastNero
Unsubscribed for ficcer being a Hitler defending douchebag.

Upon discovering his archenemy is actually a horcrux in the graveyard following his resurrection, Voldemort decides to create a different plan for his domination of Wizarding Britain. What he did not account for was his horcrux being so... desirable, nor how difficult it would be to finally get a piece of that ass.

[Voldemort sends Harry a dick pic and letters about how much he wants to fuck him. Dumbledore intercepts Harry's mail and is shocked by the filth, so he replaces Voldie's letters with flowery love letters. Pure genius.]

nobody else but me by Roflskate
in which Albus Dumbledore discovers that no matter how hard you try and move on, you can never really escape your past mistakes.

[The author's informal summary:
Graves approaches him at one of the International Confederation of Wizards meetings about Grindelwald and they begin a correspondence.

And Dumbledore is really starting to feel like he can move on from his past but oops looks like it was Grindelwald this time too.

This was absolutely perfect. The identity porn! Dumbledore trying to move on yet feeling a sense of deja vu!]

Echoes from the Void by CeNedraRiva
Harry had been expecting more after the victory. Something brighter, bigger, vibrant. Just more...Instead he seems to be empty, drifting. He tries to ignore it.

[Post-DH after Voldemort's death, Harry snaps. He's unstable without the Horcrux connection and obsessively writes letters to Voldemort. Featuring self-harm, light Ginny OOCness.

I loved this:
You were right when you told me we are remarkably similar. A few small changes, and I could have become as wicked as you. Would you have accepted me into your ranks then, acknowledge me as your equal, or murder me as competition? Yes, I can easily see what I might have become.

Would we have been friends, had I lived at your orphanage beside you, alone together against the muggle world? Or were you too dark, even then, to be open to friendship, seeing instead allies and servants?

The Light Always Burning - Raven (singlecrow) - Nation - Terry Pratchett [Archive of Our Own]
We, the People: a thirty-year retrospective and an examination of the role of the Nation in world history, for Earth Atlantic, 7 December 2035, excerpt.

|| There are nearly not words for how perfect this is--Mau's voice, and Daphne's, and their effect on the ages that followed them. Presented as a collection of ephemera, and so lovingly, beautifully, polyphonic. Hopeful and extraordinary.

I put off reading this, even though I've read Nation, and oh, that was a mistake. If you've read Nation, read this. If you haven't, go find a copy, read it, and then read this. I mean that.

Fan Mail from a Flounder
"Of course I would," Dan said grandly, "I'll have you know I've been called a 'pillar of journalistic integrity.'"<br />
<br />
"In ten," Dave announced.<br />

Casey glanced at Dan. "Who called you that?"<br />
<br />
"OriolesQ429, hailing from the great land of Baltimore dot com," Dan said, "which is a little thing we like to call an ISP."
