    Black and White

    Black and White by GenFicSanta

    Summary: “What’s the point, if you can’t make things better? He asked me that, and I didn’t know, I didn’t have an answer for him.” Someone is leaving unusual things on the Potter’s front step. Oneshot, 1,825 Words.

    Why You Should Care: This is in many ways not really a Harry Potter fanfiction at all. James and Lily are there, along with baby Harry, but you’ll discover that’s not really what this is about. This is about life and death, and in the very spirit of JKR the author treats death honestly and in an almost brutally ordinary day-to-day fashion. The boy in this fic is every boy and girl who encountered this thing called death for the first time, and has to try and deal with the finality of it, and through him James is forced to consider the concept anew. A beautifully simple way to deal with such a complicated concept. Especially poignant when you consider this takes place only a short time from the Potters’ own death.

    Why You Might Not Care: I can’t think of one, really. This is just so simple and lovely.
