[info]beholder_mod: FIC: 'The Antelope and the Lion' for lee_west

Recipient: [info]lee_west
Author: [info]westernredcedar
Title: The Antelope and the Lion
Rating: R
Pairings: Aberforth/Grindelwald, also: Albus/Grindelwald
Word Count: ~7000
Warnings: Unusual POV. Angst, dark humor. If you think Albus Dumbledore is perfect and wonderful, this is not the fic for you. Murder, canon character death. Oh, and I suppose Gellert would be 16 during his relationship with Albus, because that's canon, folks!
Summary: There is nothing an ambitious Chaos Spirit likes to play with more than a family as dysfunctional as the Dumbledores.
Author's Notes: (1) lee_west, this is rather experimental. Sorry. This pairing just took me there. Actually, JKR took me there with the screwed up story of the Dumbledore family. I just decided to actually go there. (2) There is no doubt the form of this fic was subtly influenced by "The Book Thief" by Marcus Zusak. (3) Thank you to my betas: L for the reality check, N for the idea that made it work so much better, and B for the rest.
