So, I don't know if I talked about this author before. (I mean, in the context of raving; I'm sure I've mentioned them before.) But really, honestly, the person who both influenced my career path into politics and definitely opened my world in terms of slash fanfiction - as a legitimate, okay field to be in, not a dirty secret (which is what I, as a super-religious kid, had seen it as before) - and really sparked my love for AUs is Lightning on the Wave.

This amazing, stunning author put so much goddamned effort into their stories. Like - I can't even believe. They wrote their own Harry Potter books, and I mean that one-hUNDRED PERCENT literally. They had stories that were just as long if not longer than the books, just as intricate and well-crafted as the real series. This is absolutely beautiful. There is nothing I loved better than those stories. I literally went to high school with no sleep at all because I was finishing another chapter of this story.

And the interesting thing is that it's not just politics - it's right and wrong, ethics and morality, light and dark. It's a real discussion into what is really 'evil' and what isn't. It portrays a lot of characters in new light, takes small characters and blows them large. As much as I love Sirius Black, this really turns his story on its head, turns the idea of what is "good" on its head, and I just - if you have hours to devote to this series, I highly recommend it. There is such a wealth and depth in this series - beautiful, Stunning.
