History of “Beautiful”
Way back when in 2008/2009, when nobody remotely knew about me outside of a few entries in lj oneshot contests, I began to write and post Poison Paradise.
I was an avid reader of Bittersweet Alias and when she decided to retire from fanfiction (although she did make a reapparance at one point), I applied to adopt one of her fics as a long shot. After many emails later with her “deputy” in the matter, my long time collaborator Kamerreon, I was gifted with the future of “Beautiful”.
Well, I became a bit of an instant celebrity overnight on ff.net (or at least it seemed that way to little ole me) and gained countless followers who wanted to see the fic finished and realized. Sadly, it never was. I received a great many flames when my vision was not as they would wish, haters came out of the woodwork, and I quickly took down the fic (both the original chapters by Bittersweet and those continued on by me).
I sojourned on with Of Princes and Fireflies and the Enchantment Series, and the rest (as they say) is history.
Beautiful, the Dark Heir is posted here by request.
For those of you who like it, thank you for reading. You are the life’s blood of fanfic authors like me. Your support means everything.
If you do not like Beautiful as it now stands, I’ll redirect you elsewhere. There’s plenty of fic out on the web…
Happy reading, my darlings, as always. -cen
A Note on Characterization
When I first inherited “Beautiful,” Harry was written as effeminate, childlike, and a bit of a flirt.
I went back and edited the first ten chapters to show him as innocent despite emotional and psychological abuse, looking for love, and uncomfortable when certain people showed sexual interest in him.
It’s a different way of reading the character and his actions. Please be aware of this if you proceed.
