Summary: The first fanfiction that I would recommend would be called “Dumbledore’s Army: The Year of Darkness.” This is basically a tale of Neville’s transformation from lowest in class to general of the army in the Battle of Hogwarts. The author wrote the world more detailed and emotional than even J.K. Rowling. If you like her writing, you would love Thanfiction’s rendition of Neville’s 7th year. It really is a fantastic mix of bravery, growing up fast, loyalty, and love in the face of fire.
Length: 25 chapters that are similar to Rowling’s length if not longer. This is a true novel length. Words: 247,715.
Pairings: Neville/Hannah Abbott, Susan Bones/Ernie McMillian
Warnings: Not for the faint of heart. Lots of blood, death, torture. Imagine the 7th Harry Potter book with the death toll being quadrupled.
For all of those people who wanted to know what happened back at Hogwarts.
