Harry Potter returns for his fifth year at Hogwarts amidst an increasingly unstable political situation. And this year, for the first time, Hogwarts is no longer firmly under Albus Dumbledore's control. Threats inside and outside the school put pressure on some of Harry's closest friendships, and power struggles lie beneath the surface of every faction in the brewing conflict. At its center is the Potter family, and Harry's position is more critical, and more precarious, than ever. Sequel to Harry Potter and the Center of the Maze, https://ficdb.com/fanfics/1576

Yes, it's a not!WBWL twin in Slytherin political fic where the Death Eaters are implied to not have been entirely racist bigots, and where ministry restrictions on magic are driving many of the conflicts in the series. It's also, IMO, quite well done and entertaining.
