Harry Potter The HP Fic Recommendation Thread

Wind shear did a better job of lessening (but not fully removing) Chilord's problem of writign every single character with the exact same voice. Every character banters in exactly the same way - characters are very hard to distinguish in conversation because literally everyone talks in the exact same speech patterns. And the vast majority of conversation is pointless banter.

to be honest it wasn't really that mediocre, it was just frustrating, plus as much as we like Smut, 'ruto was still 12-13 yo no matter what 'Boosts' Chakra or Kurama may have done to his body (hormonal developement or sexual maturity) he is still a little kid with terrible social graces and socially inept to the point everyone considered him to be just a good, but stupid kid.
i expect smut from the older Naruto, not from his younger self.
but yes Wind SHear is actually a Good No fucking Ships here Fic, so if anyone is looking for shipping or smut, they won't find anything bar a little tiny mention of what may be a Harry ship at the epilogue.
...No fucking ships here fic? You mean aside from Bellatrix? lul
Why on earth would you type Naruto like that Shioran? 'ruto brings me back to fics with terrible pet names.

Laughter filled the clearing for the second time that evening before it settled down again and I sighed, realizing I was the only one in the group who had not told something important. I leaned back looking to the right at Naruto who was sitting next to me. "Hey Ruto!"

Naruto turned his head to look at me with a questioning look, same with Sakura and Kakashi-Sensei. "What did you call me?" said Naruto while blinking. "I gave you a nick-name. why?" I asked back. He tilted his head a little and put on a mischievous grin as he said "Does everyone else get nick-names?" I shrugged my shoulders and said in a lazy voice "Sure." I raised an arm and moved it from the person closest to me to the person farthest. "Ruto, Kura, and Kashi." Kura giggled and pointed at me. "That means you're Suke!"
@NuitTombbee because most fics that Sexualize 10-13 year old Naruto are shit? and just using Ruto brings me LoZ flashbacks, and that is why i used Naruto on th second instance i refered to him.
@Shirotsume, considering that it was a one sided infatuation on part of Bellatrix until confirmed in the +years third Party POV Epilogue that Harry may have started to reciprocate Bellatrix? yes it's a No Ship Here Fic, because if they hooked up it was After the whole story.

I remember a mind-searingly bad fic where they took the stupid nickname thing to a single syllable: 'To, 'Ra, and 'Ke. That stopped me dead in my tracks.
to be honest those monosyllabic 'nicknames' could work awesome as codenames for covert ops instead of the dreadful 'Fox, Hawk, Toad, Snake, Slug, whatever new 'edgy' codename that it's actually pretty obvious' alias of the week.


Not The Goddamn @dmin
Reminds me of the story where Tenzou's mask is a Cat. People express confusion over why he's happy with such a common, 'uncool' mask.

Cats have never particularly been associated with the Shodaime or Mokuton, and that's just the way he likes it.

I always thought his mask looked like a Wildcat.

Here are some stories by an author, BrilliantLady, I haven't seen discussed on this site before. I randomly found Hermione Granger Demonologist one day last week and took a chance on it. It was way better than I anticipated.

Hermione Granger Demonologist

Title is pretty descriptive. A lonely Hermione learns to summon demons before Hogwarts. I thought this premise could easily go horribly wrong but the author avoids the pitfalls I feared. I enjoy it quite a bit and I'm eager to see how the story develops. The fic is completely written but only being updated one chapter a week.

The Definition of Normal

Part 1 of 4 part series (fifth is being written now). I'm partly into the fourth (year 3) now. You might find Part 1 slow but I did like it and it is short, once Harry gets to Hogwarts the series really gets good. The fic has a system of pureblood customs, and it makes more sense to me than many fanon systems I've seen. Probably the biggest draw is that Harry believably walks the tightrope of friendship with slytherins and gryffindors, with both characters from both houses remaining more or less in character. Or close enough for me anyway.

Saturn by Arpad Hrunta
Summary: Twelve years after the Dark Lord's victory, Draco Malfoy finds his position eroding in the new Britain as trials of accused traitors begin. Rated M for implications more than anything explicit.

AU, in which Voldemort's time as ruler of Magical Britain mirrors Stalin's.

So I found this new fic that's only on it's first chapter, but can work as a fun one-shot. If you like crack-fics, you'll enjoy this!

https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12978706/1/If-We-Don-t-Kill-Each-Other-We-Are-Immortal by fireskullkills
Due to one of the possible interpretations of the prophesy, Harry and Voldy are immortal as long as they don't kill each other. Crack-fic. M for violence, maybe lemons later.
Rated: M - English - Humor/Romance - Chapters: 1 - Words: 2,086 - Reviews: 7 - Favs: 46 - Follows: 83 - Published: Jun 23 - Harry P., Fleur D., Daphne G.


I found this and was greatly impressed with the work done here. It's an AU 5th year where Voldemort was unable to capture Harry/kill Cedric during the third task. It's kinda slow paced but well put together. Best part about it is that it's recent! Last update was in April and the author has some interesting one-shots as well.

I found this and was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. I hope you all like it as well!

Beside Me… Always by RoseDragonWitch reviews
Harry proudly accepted the title of 'Dumbledore's man through and through' but how little does he, do we realize that Dumbledore was 'Harry's man through and through? Their years together, now through Albus's eyes, see the bond that these two share.

"Fruit of the Golden Tree" (Fruit of the Golden Tree)
By: Lomonaaeren
AU. Thanks to the desperate actions of his wife, Fleamont Potter survived his dragonpox. Now he finds himself awake again in a world where all the members of his family are supposedly dead—except that the Potter family tree tells him that his grandson lives yet. Fleamont sets out on a search for his grandson, and then a quest to keep him safe once he's found him. COMPLETE.

Been a while since posting in this thread. This story went up a couple months ago? Have read it a few times.

I am curious. Can you tell us more about that, NDF ? Some ancestor of Harry's comes back to take care of him? Also; does it involve slash?

It's Harry's grandfather -- James Potter's father. And no, it doesn't involve slash or anything like it. I was just in a strange mood when I wrote the post, so I copy-pasted the whole entry for the summary, off FFnet.
Since I made some Naruto suggestions, I figured I'd go and make some HP suggesions as well. Again, it's been years since I've posted to this thread and I haven't go through all of the posts to exactly determine what has and has not been recommended already. Regardless, these are all fics I enjoy and hope you will too.

A MODern Man by dogbertcarroll
Summary: Harry takes advice he shouldn't, to do something he really should have known better than to try. Still, all's well that ends well, right?
Review: dogbertcarroll really out does himself with this fic. This fic is bound to make you smile, if not outright laugh. This fic sees a MoD!Harry hopping realities and takes the place of his recently deceased A/U self. Functionally a Harry/Harem fic, though primarily, so far, Harry/Ginny, though there is a twist. I'll not spoil it for you. In any case, this is a Harry enjoying life with a family he never got to have in canon, while being a better friend to Hermione, being a friendly rival to Draco, and not having to deal with the pressures of being The Boy Who Lived. Of course, while Neville is the ones destined to take on Voldemort, Harry can't be completely uninvolved.

The Stag and the Flower by ReluctantSidekick
Summary: Harry is dumped, Fleur is neglected. The two decide to leave England for a holiday together. What comes from their decision will change their lives forever.
Review: This is a much more serious fic than the above work. Being a huge Harry/Fleur fan, I'll admit my opinion of this fic is more than a little biased. Still, I love this fic. Starts with canon pairings, moderately paced developing relationship between Harry and Fleur. They don't just jump into bed at the first moment, there are some conflicting feelings and not everyone universally approves.

Heroes Assemble! by Stargon1
Summary: After five years of travelling the world, Harry Potter has landed in New York. He figures that there's no better place than the City That Never Sleeps to settle in a forge a new life. If only the heroes, villains, aliends and spies had received the same message. Begins before The Avengers movie and continues through the MCU. Encompasses MCU movies & TV and some others along the way.
Review: Obviously a Harry Potter/MCU Crossover. This fic, spanning 128 chapters, is complete. It covers many events from The Avengers all the way to Avengers: Infinity War. Of course, because of when certain parts of this was written, the Spider-man in this fic is actually the Andrew Garfield one, rather than the Tom Holland one. Still, it does a good job fitting the Harry Potter universe with The Avengers, Agents of SHIELD, The Amazing Spider-Man and even the most recent Fantastic Four movie into one solid continuity. He even pulls in characters from the greater Marvel Universe.
Harry Is A Dragon, And That's Okay by Saphroneth
Harry Potter is a dragon. He's been a dragon for several years, and frankly, he's quite used to the idea - after all, in his experience, nobody ever comments about it, so presumably, it's just what happens sometimes. Magic, though, THAT is something entirely new. Comedy fic, leading on from the consequences of one... admittedly quite large... change. Cover art by amalgamzaku.
Rated: Fiction T - English - Humor/Adventure - Harry P. - Chapters: 69 - Words: 443,092 - Reviews: 1,873 - Favs: 3,216 - Follows: 3,774 - Updated: Apr 24 - Published: Mar 10, 2019 - id: 13230340

Just something light and silly in a fandom that is becoming increasingly more focused on angst and serious tales.
I've read a chunk of that. Some parts are very silly, since being a dragon means Harry thinks nothing of eating the plates, cups, and utensils along with his meal (they taste "very nice"). I'm hesitant to call it a "crack fic" because it's written like a serious canon rewrite otherwise. I've enjoyed what I've read so far (about up to ch25)
In honor of his most recently finished fic, I've decided to recommend the fics by mjimeyg. Like myself, he specializes in crossover fics, unlike myself, he not only finishes his works, he only posts them after he's completed them. Thus leading to him having a steady rate of posting. In fact, for his most recent fic, he was posting 2 chapters a day. In any case, here are the fics of his that I would like to highlight and do note that ALL of these fics are complete.

What's a Gungan?
Summary: A teenager falls from the sky, but had no presence in The Force. He doesn't even know what he landed on. He certainly isn't anywhere near home anymore.
Review: This is mjimeyg's most recently posted fic and a Year 5 divergence fic where Harry follows Sirius into the Veil. When he appears in the Star Wars universe, he arrives on the Planet of Naboo during the early stages of the occupation. In fact, he interupts the first meeting between Qui-Gon Jin and Jar Jar Binks by landing on and killing Jar Jar. This is a fun fic, Harry/Padme, if you care about pairings. It's not, in my opinion, as good as most of his other fics, but still a fun read as Harry completely derails canon, yet still triggers the Fall of the Republic.

Summary: A portkey accident lands Harry at the feet of something more terrifying than a dragon.
Review: Year 4 divergence. When Harry and Cedric grab the Tri-Wizard Cup at the end of the TWT, their portkey ends up colliding with another, sending three people off course. The unnamed wizard goes on to defeat Peter Pettigrew, while Cedric Diggory ends up landing next to a topless Muggle on a beach in Mexico and Harry Potter lands in Jurassic Park right before everything goes to hell. While this primarily crosses the Potterverse with the Jurassic Park Movieverse, some aspects of the books are used. Later chapters even incorporate things from Jurassic World. Pairing: Harry Potter/Lex Murphy.

Family- It's in the Blood
Summary: Somebody decides to teach Harry about the importance of blood.
Review: Another Year 4 diverence fic, though this one is a non-Crossover. A chance encounter with Astoria Greengrass after yet another confrontation with Draco Malfoy, leads to Astoria teaching Harry about the importance of Family and why blood is important, beyond the typical blood purist propaganda that Death Eater Spawn like Malfoy talk about. Interestingly, Voldemort's defeat at the end of the year IS a result of The Power of Love, though not in a way one might think, as Harry becomes a member of the Greengrass family after a misunderstanding between himself and McGonagall gets out of hand. This is one of his better works overall, though I wish there had been more focus in the latter portion of the fic on Harry and Astoria's growing relationship.

Harry Five-0
Summary: There was a reason that surfer crashed into Kono that day... And she really shouldn't have hit him. Kono's hot-tempered response lands them with a teammate that likes to cause mischief and has little respect for Protocol.
Review: This is, obviously, a Harry Potter/Hawaii Five-0 crossover with the primary pairing being Harry/Kono. HOWEVER, this fic is primarily a Harry Potter/Hawaii Five-0/Lilo & Stitch Crossover. Despite and because of the Lilo & Stitch elements, HE MAKES IT WORK! I don't know how, because really, this fic should not be as good as it is, but it works. Later chapters incorporate NCIS, NCIS: LA, and Bones. The Harry Potter portions take place post-DH, and is thus EWE. The Lilo & Stitch portions also take place after the movies and the TV series. Hawaii Five-0 diverges from the Pilot Episode.

Harry Potter: Geth
Summary: During the final battle, Harry is hit with a luck spell... But who exactly got lucky? Harry finds himself in the future fighting a new war, when all he wants to do is have a nice and easy life. So he decides to have fun instead.
Review: A Harry Potter/Mass Effect Crossover, obviously. Harry/Tali (though this later expands to include Kasumi and Shiala) and Shepard/Ashley. All in all, I'd have to say this is my favorite of all of his works. This is mostly a serious fic though Rule of Funny, or rather, Rule of Fun takes precedence. Starts during the final spell exchange between Harry and Voldemort. While Voldemort still dies, Harry ends up getting sent to Rannoch 3 years prior to the events of the first Mass Effect game. The Geth patch him up, and then ask him to become their Emissary to organics across the galaxy. Unfortunately, or Fortunately, his trip to the Citadel gets redirected to Eden Prime where he joins up with the Normandy crew on their quest to defeat both Saren and the Reapers.

This thread seems slightly dead so it's time it's revived.

If you get there before I do

This is a Harry/Hermione story that starts after Ron leaves them in DH. It is, I think, the best example of a 'what if' story that you can find on ff.net. There's no bashing and it's a proper slow burn.
I hope you like it as it's now one of my favorites!

Both are great fics, full of humor. Racke is a great writer with some great ideas; even her abandoned ideas are pretty neat.

Yeah, Racke has quite a few neat ideas. They're a 'he', I believe, though.
