Summary: Dumbledore is gone, or is he? Harry feels the weight of the world rests on his shoulders, but he is soon to learn that his brooding nature and desire to face his fate alone may be his greatest weakness. It is his emotions, or rather his capacity for emotion that makes him strong, and his relationships his greatest source of strength.
When the summer begins and he faces a fortnight with the Dursleys everything he knows, or rather thinks he knows comes into question. Can he... should he do this all alone? And is he anywhere near ready?
Hogwarts is to be re-opened, the Ministry officially endorsing it as the safest possible place to be. As his birthday approaches there are monumental surprises in store for Harry. Who is he really? And what about his family, who came before his mother and father? Why is the Potter name so famous, and yet so unknown?
Encouraged not to run off to face his fate he returns to Hogwarts for his final year, but surprises abound at the school as well.
Can Harry become the wizard he needs to be to face the Dark Lord? Will he let the people he respects and love really help him? And what of help from unexpected sources; sources he might never trust?
I have to say that I just foud this story and am quite happy that I did. I really enjoyed what you have written so far. The side story with Draco is excellent, and I think you have captured aspects of his personality exceptionally well. I hope Narcissa wakes up in the near future so we can see her rection to what her son has become. The Potter family story is also very well conceived and written. I really enjoy the idea and background of harry's family. Please keep up the writing and thanks for a great story so far.

Summary: When recruits are inducted into the ranks of darkness, their minds must be scrutinized, to find any hints of weakness. But often times, even deeper darkness is found, threads of darkness that are spun into the blackness, woven into the curtain of one's life...
Warning: This is a very, very dark story, and liberties have been taken regarding certain elements of the plot. Viewer discretion is advised...
