FIC: In Brightest Day

Title:  In Brightest Day
Fandom:  DCU, HP
Pairings/Characters:  Harry Potter
Rating:  G
Challenge:  crossovers100 
Word Count: 
Disclaimer:  I do not own DC Comics or Harry Potter.
Summary:  Dumbledore was wrong about the "power he knows not."  One-shot. 

Dumbledore was wrong.

In the end, ‘the power he knows not’ wasn’t anything as intangible as love.  Nor was it a spectacular or rare magical ability, or a connection to any long-dead famous wizard.

No, ‘the power he knows not’ was something else entirely: a ring.

A small, green power ring, to be exact.  

Now, Harry idly plays with the ring as he stands on the ramparts of Hogwarts, looking out at Voldemort’s approaching army.  Thrusting his fist skyward, Harry throws his head back and begins to chant as a green glow surrounds him:

In brightest day, in blackest night…”

Author’s Notes: This was the result of an odd dream that I had a couple of nights ago. I’d eventually like to expand this idea into a novel-length fic.

Oh God, Harry would make a great Green Lantern, now wouldn't he? ;-)

I certainly think so. At least I hope so, since I've already completed the step-sheet and character bios for a novel-length fic on the idea.

Thank you so very much for reading and reviewing!

I almost didn't post this, I was going to chicken out as usual because I'm terrified of commenting, but I thought of something that made me come back. I was looking at the comments on this that were posted on the Crossover group and you said you didn't want to have the weakness to yellow, neh? Other than removing it completely there is one way around it, I remember reading somewhere that the lack of direct power on yellow things was due to some being made of fear in the main battery on Oa or something like that and if the lantern faced and overcame his greatest fear he would be able to have power over yellow. Technically, and this might be stretching it a bit I don't know, Harry faced his greatest fear, Dementors, in third year therefore he would've already overcome that obstacle... Or you could just cut it. xD 'Specially if you have it all thought out already.

I don't know if it shows that I've posted this twice and deleted it but I thought I'd explain myself and say that it's because I was an idjit and pressed submit rather than preview when I knew I had something down that I didn't like and if it doesn't show it then..... I did no such thing, what are you on about? Ahem, anyways back to the commenting on the drabble Speaking of all thought out, I was sorry to hear about all that lost work and I hope you've been able to recover/redo/remember/cantaloupe most of it without too much trouble because I really like this concept and would be very interested in seeing how you expand on it. Iunno if you're even still thinking of doing this but I do hope you haven't abandoned it, anywho I'm going to stop rambling now, hehheh. ^-^;;

Lol! Love it :D Especially how you draw out the suspense. I wonder whether the killing curse can get through a green lantern shield... ponders. Great drabble :)

"When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am 50, I read them openly. When I became a man, I put away childish things--including the fear of childishness and the desire to be grown-up."
-C.S. Lewis
