Author’s Summary: Harry Potter loves, and is loved by, his parents, his godfather, and his brother. He isn’t mistreated, abused, or neglected. So why is he a Dark Wizard? NonBWL!Harry. Not your typical Harry’s brother is the Boy Who Lived story.
My Thoughts: Look, many people have said it before, but I’m happy to say it again. Harry Potter and the Boy Who Lived is a fucking amazing story. It’s original, it has dynamic characters, it has incredibly entertaining character arcs, and it has intense action sequences. There will never be an interpretation of Durmstrang that I like more than the one featured in this story, and Calypso Rosier is such an iconic OC that she’s still being borrowed by other authors (such as ACI100 in his story Ashes of Chaos) today! I really like this story, even if I’m not much of a fan of The Santi’s other works. Give this fic a try if you haven’t already, but then again…you’ve already read this. Everyone’s read this one.
Unfortunately, Harry Potter and the Boy Who Lived has not been updated in six years, and the author disappeared after abandoning this fic. It would take a fucking miracle for this story to be continued. Although, I suppose it’s worth pointing out that there are several extra chapters of this story on the Dark Lord Potter forums, but I’m not going to link them here because I don’t want to link to DLP as I think it’s a very toxic place, and I don’t want to give them free promotion.
