Cauterize: Painful Healing
Photos as a method of catharsis. A Haunting one-shot that will make you re-evaluate all Harry Potter fanfiction, if not fanfiction as a whole. It make the most of what is not a happy ending (for those in-universe), and converts the pain into something tangible. Lines like "Of course it's missing something vital. That's the point." really drive the message home. It feels like a short story and is a wonderful way to cut through saccharine glurge and sugar overdose. Yet, at the same time, reading it while depressed (which is how I first read the fic) still allows for the work to protrude an almost triumphant feel by the end.
