Their Affliction by Alice Mac
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 2]

Summary: Love - that's what Albus thinks sets us apart. The ability to love and the power that it gives you.

I disagree: I think it's hate. Hate is pure, fierce and unyielding. It courses through you like fire and invests you with its strength. Hate guards you from other people - it protects you. If all you feel is hate, you have nothing to lose. You are untouchable.

Love drains you. It forces you to care about others and their welfare and if they are harmed...well, then it brings grief, anguish and pain that rivals any curse. Love reels you in with its sweetness, comfort and passion and then destroys you with its absence. It is crueller than any curse. It is the Gryffindor affliction.

421 Hours by iLuna17
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 7]

Summary: 421 hours. That’s how long I spent in hell.

Hell was humid and hot, and was a ten-meter concrete box. It was filled with blackouts, and mind tricks. It was filled with pain. It was filled with memories; so horrid you wish you would die again just to escape it. The only thing hell wasn’t was lonely. The devil was always there to remind me exactly where I was.

Above all, hell was painful. And I couldn’t escape it.

This is a companion piece to All That’s Left. It isn’t completely necessary to read it before this, but I would recommend it.
