The Merging

Fandom: Harry Potter
The Dementor attack on Harry leaves him kissed with his wand broken in an alleyway. Somehow surviving, the mystery remains unanswered as the new year draws closer, buried by the looming conflict the Order scrambles to prepare for. Buried by the prospect of his toughest year at Hogwarts yet. In the face of his fate, what can he do but keep moving forwards?

The Merging book cover

I’m sure I’d already read this, but the fanfictions do … well I was going to say blur, but merge works too. If you can get over the somewhat overpowered theory of the Kiss doing what it does to begin with, there’s much to enjoy here and it’s quite a safe thing, without much of the gratuitous sex or too much character bashing. It does waft a vague innocence, very little is made of some important characters and people Harry’s own age seem to get short shrift. But on the whole, I enjoyed the execution, even if I did have to suspend my disbelief for the idea.
