    Summary

    Harem intrigue based on the Ming and Qing dynasties. Now with pictures at the end of some chapters. (Inspired by orphaned work Crimson Dream, but has since taken on a very different direction.)

    Son of Heaven and veritable demi-god, Emperor Voldemort has reigned for nearly 60 years. He's determined to reign for 10,000 more. While he has no Empress, his harem ever increases.

    Harry Potter is the son of a military official's concubine. He loves his mother, and only wants to live quietly with her and his pet owl. Imperial law requires he be considered for the inner palace, but with no power and no desire to impress he's confident he would never be selected.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Okay, the long pairing list almost put me off but the summary got me real interested and I’m glad I gave this fic a chance.

    There’s some really intricate world building and politicking going on, and the author has clearly done their homework on the time period, fashion, and music (though as they’d say, this is only loosely inspired by history). The writing is superb and I love Harry and Lily’s relationship here. Harry is very much a reluctant player in this harem, where everyone is carefully measuring each other up and building alliances. Nothing has happened romance-wise yet, and I expect it to for quite a while. Even if did, I don’t think it be depicted as romantic.

    All this to say, this is the rare fic that plays the harem trope straight.
