After starting with Perils of Magical Investigative Journalism, I decided I wanted to do another crossover with the Fate franchise. This time, I intend to take a leaf from Fate/Zero, the darker prequel series. And while my previous foray into the Nasuverse was more lighthearted, this one is, as befits the source, considerably darker.

Followers of The Cauldron may recognise the basic starting point as being similar to Light the Blue Touch Paper and Run Like Hell. However, unlike that story, we don't have Zelretch getting involved. At least not initially. Maybe something will happen. Also, this one will be considerably more dark and angsty, though not without humour. Harry will be a snarky Master of Death, like in Nitimur in Vetitum and Newport Mage, but he'll also be struggling with himself, as well as Kiritsugu. I am also shipping Harry with Arturia.

Incidentally, the story's title means 'from the shadow into the light', describing Harry's character arc in this story.

Anyway, time for the usual disclaimers. Firstly, there will be spoilers for both Harry Potter and Fate/Zero.

Secondly, there will be heavy annotations, as is usual for my works. You have been warned.

Thirdly, this is an M-Rated work. There will be coarse language, violence, and sexual references. Again, you have been warned.

Finally, the following is a fan-written work. Harry Potter and Fate/Zero are the properties of their respective owners. Please support the official release. Otherwise, Kiritsugu will shoot you with an Origin Bullet…
