Roads Not Taken

The Best Revenge by Arsinoe De Blassenville

Fanfic comes in every genre known to professional publishing, in addition to one or two which are almost exclusively its own. Perhaps the best known of these additional genres is the “redo,” in which the original story is retold with some critical change to the underlying premise, and is left to develop from there.

‘The Best Revenge’ is a classic redo. In the “Severitas” tradition.

Note 2020: This story was listed in Oprah Magazine May 2020 in the article: ‘52 of the Best Harry Potter Fan Fiction Stories on the Internet.’
