    Summary

    Harry does not give up the Horcrux when he dies. 

    Can goodness be a hero’s tragic flaw?

    Moved by compassion, he embraces it instead.

    Can forgiveness be a gift unconsciously granted?

    What follows next, he could not predict. He’s not sure he ever really had a choice in the matter.

    Can love exist, even flourish, in a heart that does not give its consent?

    The world Harry wakes up to is not like the one he remembers.

    This is a horror story.

    And his captor is neither the same as he was, nor as different as he would like.

    This is a love story.

    Summary

    “Sort of hilarious, isn’t it?” Harry remarks. “You fought Grindelwald's war to subjugate ‘inferior Muggles,’ and now you’re stuck getting sick like them?”

    Though Riddle opens his mouth for a witty retort, he starts coughing instead. He starts coughing, and he doesn’t stop, rummaging amidst his blankets until he finds a clean handkerchief and shoves it over his mouth. Mouth agape, Harry waits for the fit to pass …

    Against the pure white of the handkerchief, blood blossoms red.

    (Or: After years of near-misses at Hogwarts and on the battlefield, Harry and Tom collide one final time, drawn together by what seems to be a painfully Muggle illness. A twisted Hanahaki AU, with blood in place of the flowers.)
