What could possibly be a higher form of madness than falling in love with someone who does not share your feelings? Well, for starters, if that person happens to be your best friend, then that certainly qualifies.
Albus Potter has fallen prey to this quandary, and through a self-exploratory journey, he learns much about what it’s like to love and what it’s like to lose himself.

Wow. I really liked this. It's terribly beautiful too. (...I may or may not have started tearing up a little in the end, haha) Please keep writing, you have a gift.
Author's Response: Yayyyy, thank you. This story is like a melancholy slice carved out of a pure block of emotion and angst. It was really intense to write, and It actually took a lot out of me to make the feelings and interactions just right. I'm glad you appreciate it. :D ~Jess
