And by new-ish, I mean, "Anything posted after 2003."* And by badass, I mean, Death Eaters or shape-shifting or magical theory or the destructive legacy of magical inbreeding or Grindelwald or the House of Black or Tom Riddle as a hungry orphan or Diagon Alley or unicorns or magical wardrobes or Bellatrix, coming to believe in the family tapestry, or Remus Lupin, starving in the years after James and Lily die and before Dumbledore tells him to come back to Hogwarts. You know. Stuff. Harry Potter stuff. That's badass.
* Oh my God, I can't believe that I'm still in fandom.
