Harry Potter and the Seventh Horcrux

This fic by Melindaleo is famous both on its own merits as a first-rate pre-DH seventh year fic, and for having been passed off on the internet by some anonymous fan—not the fic's author—as the supposed manuscript for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

The fic itself is a terrific adventure tale with a sensitivity for canon details and themes and a helping of Harry/Ginny and Ron/Hermione romance; it is not surprising that many readers were willing to believe that it had in fact been penned by JK Rowling. There is no mention, however of Hallows, deathly or otherwise; this should have been clue to fans who thought they were reading the real article.

The story takes Harry and his friends through the now-familiar hunt for the Horcruxes—with many elements that are remarkably close to those in the actual seventh book. One major point of departure is that Ginny is deeply involved in the hunt for the Horcruxes, as is, eventually, Draco Malfoy.

The author's summary: The hunt for the horcruxes begins. Harry has to decide who to trust as he moves closer to fulfilling his destiny. Will he be able to find and destroy all the horcruxes? And at what price? Will he be able to find the strength within himself..."the Power the Dark Lord Knows Not"...in order to succeed in vanquishing Voldemort? And...can he do it and still get the girl? Join Harry and his faithful friends on their quest to finally defeat a Dark Lord.

This fic was finished in November, 2006.
