All Roads Lead Back
By pandiesboxx
Harry Potter always figured that once he had fulfilled his destiny he could finally have a happy, normal life. Unfortunately for him he fell in love with his best friend...and everything went straight to hell. Set 7 years after the final battle. EDITED
Harry Potter - Rated: M - English - Romance/Drama - Chapters: 27 - Words: 532,244 - Reviews: 459 - Updated: 12-31-08 - Published: 12-1-05 - Harry P. & Hermione G.
Recommended by Vander. This is an incredibly long (currently sitting at 500,000 words and will likely end up close to 800,000+ when it's done) story about about an H/Hr relationship. The main difference with this one over most of the others is that Harry is currently married to Ginny and Hermione had disappeared for the past 6 years. It's quite slow paced so if you don't particularly care for stories with a lot of fluff and little action, I'd suggest you ignore this one. However it's a very well written nearly tragic relationship story. There is an underlying plot besides the relationship as well that involves a pureblood serial killer who is taking out people involved in pureblood-muggleborn/muggle relationships.

A Mother In Law's Love
By Perspicacity
Distraught over Ginny’s death in the final battle, Harry gambles desperately and travels back in time to set things right. Unfortunately, not everything goes as planned. A twist on the classic Soul Bond tale.

Blood Bound: A Vampire Story
By Dementor149
Harry Potter becomes a vampire. Which struggle will be the most difficult? The war with Voldemort, or the struggle to hold onto his own failing humanity? Takes place right after HBP and makes an immediate detour into the Twilight Zone. Beware a HHr story.
Harry Potter - Rated: T - English - Horror/Angst - Chapters: 27 - Words: 116,522 - Reviews: 119 - Updated: 8-31-07 - Published: 8-6-07 - Harry P. & Hermione G. - Complete
Recommended by Vander and Prince Charon. Basically the story is that Harry gets turned into a vampire and in order to save Hermione, he must turn her into one as well. The story follows them as they continue to try and follow the plan to destroy the horcruxes and ultimately Voldemort. Unlike every other vampire fic I've seen, this one doesn't glorify vampires at all and really makes it an actual curse that slowly causes you to lose your humanity. There are quite a few absolutely heartbreaking scenes in this story that revolve around this aspect of the story. One occurs when they realize they can't ever have sex due to their sense of touch being massively dulled and the other are from people and creatures being repulsed by them. One particularly tragic scene involves Harry and Dobby. This story is not a happy story, it's actually one of the more tragic stories I've read. So if you like your stories wrapping up with a happy ending then I suggest you don't read this one.

Recommended by DeepAzure. So far a very interesting fic with a Harry that actually takes the trouble to think and research a bit on his own when life goes all pear-shaped on him. Harry is also very disillusioned with Dumbledore and the Ministry after the constant lack of proper backup and the attempts to run a smear campaign against him. Will likely take the way of a grey ethos, vigilante potter.

Recommended by ray243. While it can be said that this fic is a little OOC, the moral tale is very interesting. Is it worth it, for you to become one of the most cruel and evil person alive, just to ensure history can stay on its course. Very short story, but the ending is depressing indeed.

Forever Knight
By DeliverMeFromEve
SPOILERS: Books 1 - 6 Contents: NC17
Description: War, werewolves, wizards, death, the undead… Harry has his work cut out for him. And then there’s Hermione, who’s a different set of vamp-angst altogether. Though war and death has changed so much, Harry knows he could beat the odds of a bitter fate. Now he just has to make her believe it. WARNINGS: Probably too much sex and extreme violence. EXCERPT: It was a night like this one long before when Hermione Granger became the center of his life. He didn’t know back then that was what happened. All he knew was that she had appeared at the Dursley doorstep and quite possibly shifted his understanding of life.
Published: 05/10/05 Updated: 12/10/06 Status: Completed Genre: Romance / Drama Words: 500686 Chapters: 44 - LATEST
Recommended by Vander. Post HBP, it's a Harry/Hermione story with a major twist. Hermione gets turned into a vampire by one of the Vampires loyal to Voldemort (though it was against his wishes). The story then deals with the ramifications of what happens when your best friend/lover is turned into a vampire. Vampires in this story are not inherently evil, they just have to consume blood to survive. This is by far the best vampire Harry Potter fanfic I've ever seen. The author goes into a huge amount of detail regarding vampires and their culture. It's an extremely long story (over 500,000 words) but it's not slow paced and a lot of stuff does happen once the story gets going.

Harry is forced to make a hard choice, and grow up much earlier then most. What will fallow in the path of a Harry potter willing to sacrifice to win?

Hallows And Pathos

** Winner of Best Overall and Best Drama in The Deathly Hallows Challenge ** A mistake by a dying man drives Hermione to obsession as she seeks to unlock the secrets of the Deathly Hallows for the betterment of humanity. Harry, desiring only a peaceful life with his beloved, tries to rid himself of the taint of death. Two friends clash in a tragic struggle for identity and destiny.

Recommended by Tabi. My review: An excellent Epilogue and AU of what might have happened after the 7th book. Hermione's obsessive wish to make things better for all goes onto the extremes as she delves deep into the makings of the Deathly Hallows. Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. In this case, that explains it the best. If you look closely, you can see a Naruto (season 1) reference.

Recommended by Perspicacity. The second is a piece by Lorddragon73 that is historical in the fandom as an early "Indy!Harry", penned before magical training trunks became the Toyota Camry of plot ideas and the "Harry/Ginny fluff" Borg consumed the fandom. Well written and competent storytelling, it's how the ship should be done.

Recommended by DeepAzure. This is a fic largely built on several cliché components that is nevertheless still quite amusing to read. A bit like Perfect Lionheart but so far without all the bashing, plot-overflow and evident smug conviction of self supremacy. There has so far been no actual Yuri. Nor has there been much in the way of bashing.

Recommended by Perspicacity. A rare time-travel story with a Harry/Ariana Dumbledore pairing, it's high quality storytelling by one of my favorite authors in the fandom. My only criticism is that it sat idle for so long. The author has picked it up again, however, and updated recently. The story has three chapters (~20k words), with more to come. (A quibble I have with the author is that he has such wonderful starts to stories, but has yet to run a piece through to completion; if he ever learns to finish, I've no doubt he'll be considered a giant in the fandom).

Now, harry's made friends with the re-incarnation of Voldemort, and tamed him down some, to where he thinks through everything he does. Will he turn to the dark side? (Quite likely) Will he spit in his older counterpart's face for his foolishness (Hell the fuck yeah, he will.) Will he likely permadie at the end of the series? Quite possibly, in order to kill voldemort. (He's quite probably a crux too.)

Recommended by Perspicacity. This story is a replacement fourth-year story in an AU where the events of the World Quidditch Cup impel the other two schools to postpone the Triwizard Tournament. It's solid, professional-caliber writing with honest canon portrayals of the characters (with the exception of Hermione, who comes off as more arrogant and unlikeable than her canon self). Neisseria taps into what made JKR's first three books outstanding--they were mystery stories, foremost, and she pegs this in Rustlings. (JKR's later books--particularly book 5--were less tight, with the mystery taking a back seat to the adventure).

Recommended by Vander. Starts during GoF directly after Voldemort is resurrected. Harry becomes the first male Veela in a thousand years while also absorbing all of Voldemort's memories. There is no slash here (save for femmslash) as it's a Harry/harem story. Harry is way more independent than canon here as well. Hermione and Ron are almost non-existent in the story. Unlike most other Harry/Harem stories, this one isn't a comedy, it's quite dark (hence why it's posted on adultfanfiction).

Shadow Walks
By lorien829
SPOILERS: Books 1 - 6 Contents: PG13
Description: In the five years since the Final Battle, Harry Potter and Ron Weasley have struggled to cope with the mysterious disappearance and apparent death of Hermione Granger. Ron has found solace in drink and Harry in work, while Luna Lovegood strives desperately to hold their fragile family together. All is not as it seems, and there are deeper, darker schemes at work than Harry yet realizes. To what lengths would Harry go to get Hermione back for good?

Recommended by Vander. Post HBP, about 4 years after the defeat of Voldemort, Harry and Ron's lives are in shambles held together only through the efforts of Luna who lives with them. Harry is slowly working himself to death while Ron drinks all of his sorrows away. The reason for their despair is the apparent death of Hermione right after Harry defeated Voldemort and the uncertainty surrounding her death. While the story has a happy ending, it's one of the sadder stories I've seen. The emotional anguish the main characters experience throughout the story is heartbreaking. There is a sequel called Shadow Walker based upon a few chapters in the middle of the story (what occurs during those few chapters had me tears). Though it's still in its infancy and is not close to completion.

By Vicarious Leigh
Recommended by Vander. Post OOtP, these two stories follow a different path than canon. There are no Deathly Hallows here and the story here actually makes the aspect of love mean a whole hell of a lot more than it did in canon. It basically just follows Harry, Ron and Hermione as they try to find a way to destroy Voldemort (horcruxes are never mentioned). There are some similarities between this story and Trouble in Paradise/Paradise Lost that I recommended before as well. I only had one problem with these stories though and that was with a character the author made up for the sequel. The character is one of the most blatant representations of a Mary Sue I've ever seen in fan fiction, and it almost killed my desire to finish the story once she was introduced. It's impossible to miss her in the story as she is a major character in the sequel. Luckily though the writing and everything else was good enough to keep me reading.

Very dark alterverse fic where Harry was classed as a squib and and after witnessing and interfering in some deatheaters idea of fun is obliviated and then becomes their unwitting next target. Once again obliviated he is approached by the Einheri. An organization of primarily empowered squibs who use runes, rituals and technology to give their members an edge. In normal MoM fashion the members are all declared dark creatures who steal the magic of wizards. A kill on sight order goes out.

Recommended by Vander. Its a post GoF story 10 years after their 7th year. Anyway, the story is told through Angelina Johnson's point of view, who is currently married to Fred. Ron is married to Hermione, but both begin to suspect the other of cheating. The story is about relationships, but it does have an overarching plot involving Harry, Ron and Hermione and what they had to do in order to defeat Voldemort. Horcruxes are not mentioned at all. This is one of the better stories I've seen and it's quite a heartbreaking one because it doesn't seem to have a happy ending.

Recommended by Vander. Don't know if anyone has recommended this one here or not, but it's good enough to be recced again. It's one of the Harry has a twin brother whom everyone thinks is the boy-who-lived but it's actually Harry stories. It's also by far the best story in that mold I've read. Harry is in Ravenclaw in this story, as is Hermione. Harry has done everything he did in canon (and more) but his brother has taken all the credit. Harry also has one of the more interesting animagus forms I've seen. Harry's brother, Daniel, is probably one of the most loathsome characters I've ever seen in this story. He's basically a teenage version of Lockhart, except he has some talent and is a spoiled brat. His character is one of the few characters I can honestly say I really enjoyed to see go down (those few chapters in this story are greatness).

Recommended by Vander. It's a Harry/Hermione story that goes AU after Goblet of Fire and it's based upon movie canon rather than book canon. However it is also probably the most realistic portrayal of a teenage Harry/Hermione relationship. If you like fics that have a lot of action rather than focusing upon relationships, this fic probably isn't for you as the majority of the focus is upon Harry and Hermione's relationship and how it develops. It is very well written though and goes into a lot of detail. There is an actual story in this one as well it's just is in the background for most of it.

Mentioned by JoeHundredaire. No, he becomes a shapeshifter and adopts dual personas, the female one being so wittily named 'Raven Adler' as a portmanteau of Raven Darkholme and Irene Adler from Marvel comics. The story is marked femmeslash and all characters save for Harry/Raven and Luna are... not quite bashed, but marginalized, so I'm assuming the F/F comes from Raven/Luna.

Recommended by Perspicacity. I trust you've read lulu42's Path of Decision? I'm sure it's been rec'd before, but if not, it's a HP/Sandman crossover that is quite readable--definitely on my list of favorites. (Not Incarnates, granted, but some similar concepts, if you look at them from 40000 feet).

Recommended by jpdt19. A most superb Harry Potter/Sherlock Holmes story. Set in the 19th century, it is both a wonderfully realistic Conan Doyle story, and one which portrays a fascinating take on the wizarding world at that time. I cannot but most highly recomend this!

Recommended by DarthMetool. No slash in it, but I should warn you that the author seems to be female, and has already written two stories with slash. Hopefully, this won't turn into a slash story because it is pretty good. Especially the part with Clarissa (described as Chucky's scary cousin).


Author who has written a number of highly praised HP stories, including the Dumbledore's Army And The Year Of Darkness (DAYD) series.
