    Summary

    Voldemort's possession of Harry during the events at the Department of Mysteries triggers a latent telepathic ability. Harry's mind begins reaching out to Riddle every night during his sleep, and Riddle takes advantage of that to cast Imperius on Harry, attempting to coerce him into murdering anyone and anything near him. Harry keeps the dreams quiet for fear of being locked up, but when he returns to school, he soon finds dealing with his nightmares and visions, not to mention flaky friends, unwanted advances, and a Snape who's more abusive than ever too much to handle alone. Will Harry survive when the entire world has turned against him and his closest ally comes from the last place he would ever expect?

    AU notes: Harry et al are aged up one year to avoid underage issues. Harry is 16 at the start of the story, 17 in chapter 2, and 18 before any real romantic stuff begins.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I love an in-character Snape. This one has a few moments of OOCness in the “first arc,” but he’s a mean violent bastard in most of this second arc, while still being quasi-secretly obsessed with and protective of Harry. Probably what bothers me most about this series is that the author has tried to make it an endearing defining characteristic that Harry has “impossibly small hands”—tbh it squicks me out every time it comes up, and it comes up all the effing time. But hey, that’s a small price to pay for the super satisfying hurt/comfort and pretty hot hook-up moment.

    A perhaps disturbing look at what one bitter man’s obsession could lead to, and the unexpected results—but for whom?

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Awesome. Severus isn’t ever out of character, but he still comes to care secretly about Harry. The first half is alarming (and a little hot) as Severus inexorably takes control of Harry’s mind and body, but the second half becomes inspiring in the same way as FalconLux’s “A Well-Ordered Mind,” as Harry takes back control and pulls all the strings to his own advantage.

    Summary

    Harry actually didn't mean to become a Dark Lord. It just sort of happened that way.

     

    This series technically started with the one-shot "Charming When He Needs to Be," but Easy as Falling, Black Phoenix, and Burning Day are all finished prequels to it. Inspired by a request from sandersyager for Benevolently Snarky Dark Lord Harry.
