Here's a fun one that I've found. It's a Star Wars/Harry Potter story that takes place in an altered "A New Hope" timeline.

A New World reviews
As his and Voldemort's spells collide during the Battle of Hogwarts, not all is as it seems. Yes, the Dark Lord is defeated, but something weird happens to Harry, too. Without having a real explanation as to why, he is thrust into an alien world. Some would let this development crush their spirit, that was never something he was good at letting happen. Instead, it becomes a chance.
Crossover - Star Wars & Harry Potter - Rated: M - English - Sci-Fi/Adventure - Chapters: 14 - Words: 58,498 - Reviews: 212 - Favs: 936 - Follows: 1,468 - Updated: Oct 5 - Published: Aug 8 - [Harry P., Leia O.] OC

It tends to have a few small time-jumps but is a fun romp in a "Legends" based universe.
 
Yeah, Racke has quite a few neat ideas. They're a 'he', I believe, though.
To be fair, many names are non-indictive of gender, so it's hard to tell when all you have is a faceless screen name.

And since I hate posting without contributing...

Making a Deal With a Devil by EmeraldGuardian7
Summary: [ON HIATUS] After picking up a strange paper in the Department of Mysteries, Harry accidentally summons a devil to Privet Drive. Of course, this devil doesn't look at all how you might expect. She looks like a regular, albiet exceedingly attractive, girl. Their lives now tied together, how will Rias Gremory affect the war against Voldemort.
Review: A Harry Potter/Highschool DxD Crossover. This is a good read, though unfinished and hasn't been updated in ages. 5th Year Divergance for Harry Potter, pre-series for High School DxD and features MoD!Harry. Reasonably paced and a rare non-Harem fic- considering the Crossover material, though the author has said that they were considering expanding the main pairing, though leaning towards keeping it just Harry/Rias. There is groundwork for purely friendship pairings between Harry/Fleur and Harry/Ravel.

Wizard DxD Volume 1: A New Life by bivz643
Summary: After the war, Harry leaves Britain for Kuoh to start a new life. While he may want to stay away from the holy war that is currently in a fragil standstill, how long will he be able to stay away from it all? Especially, when his title of Master of Death makes him a lord of the Underworld nobility. Also, what about Potters and their Redheads?
Review: Another Harry Potter/Highschool DxD Crossover. Harry Potter post-Series Divergence, though EWE. Highschool DxD Divergence right from the start. Another good fic and even complete, though the fic stops before the Rating Game between Rias and Riser. A Harry/Rias non-Harem fic, though future Volumes are supposed to expand on that. Sadly, no other volumes have been written.

FILFy Teacher by Vimesenthusiast
Summary: A Harry Potter who has tried to take control of his destiny from second year on, finds himself in need of a fresh start due to his marital status changing abruptly. Armed with some abilities beyond the norm, a Mastery of Defense and a muggle-styles teacher's license, Harry takes his daughter, Lily Luna and takes a job offer at Kuoh Academy.
Review: Harry Potter/Highschool DxD Crossover with lots and LOTS of world building and character development. Harry Potter post-Series Divergent, EWE. Pre-series Divergent for Highschool DxD. Creature and Werewolf Harry. And while the pairing is Harry/Rias/Others, there is plenty of build up for that as well, as Harry has a very human mindset of monogamous, completely exclusive relationships that he has to overcome. Hell, he has to overcome the fact that Rias is his student before they start their own relationship. Once they do start dating, however, it's nice to see Harry and his daughter and Rias and her Peerage integrate into a close knit family unit, adding others along the way- and not necessarily in the romantic sense, as Rias takes on a motherly role for Lily and Harry becomes a father to Koneko, Asia and Kunou. Also, irregularly, for a Harem fic, not all of the women involved in the relationship are willing to sleep with the other women involved with Harry and all of the seperate relationships evolve organically in their own unique ways.

Making A Deal was supposed to be getting a rewrite, but I think RL took the author away from it.

Sing a Requiem

This is HBP divergent story that explores the idea of Hermione figuring out that Harry is a Horcrux in the middle of their sixth year. It's still being worked on as of right now and is a H/Hr pairing. It's doesn't have any bashing, just character based opinions on other characters.

To be honest, it takes the "What If" concept and does it right.

Here's a dark as hell love story.

Birds and Monsters by Freudentraene reviews
A slightly different purchase planning during his first visit to Diagon Alley means that Harry meets a completely different person than Draco Malfoy at Madam Malkins. How will this encounter change the fate of the world? And will two restless souls together be able to find some happiness and love in a ruthless world? HP/DG

Strangers On a Train reviews
Hermione Granger is the first person to meet Harry on the Hogwarts Express, not Ron Weasley. How does this change their dynamic? How does this change their relationship with Ron, with everyone? Just how much better could Harry Potter's life have been if a certain bushy-haired witch had wandered into his compartment just a few minutes earlier?
Harry Potter - Rated: M - English - Romance/Adventure - Chapters: 72 - Words: 325,400 - Reviews: 1638 - Favs: 2,007 - Follows: 2,822 - Updated: Oct 12 - Published: Apr 30 - [Harry P., Hermione G.]

Here's a fun, tooth rotting, love story that takes the idea that one small change can have large ripples. Basically a great example of a 'what if' story. It starts from the beginning of the train ride and smoothly navigates throughout the first four years of Hogwarts. As of it's last chapter, they're on the train for fifth year.

Too Many Champions by maschl reviews
Harry and Hermione decide to help Fred and George to enter their names into the Goblet of Fire. Then, they enter some more names. Chaos ensues... A story that combines humour, logic, canon concepts, and some unique plot bunnies into a 4th-year tale that's hopefully different. COMPLETE

Here's a nice crack-fic that takes GoF and turns it on it's head. (Harry's name doesn't come out of the goblet.)

Here's something you might like.

Ice Cream by Andrius
Summary: Harry runs into the Ice Queen of Slytherin during a late night trip to the kitchens.
Review: 6th Year Divergence. One-Shot. Harry/Daphne pairing that turns the "Ice Queen Daphne" cliche on it's head. A nice, feel good fic that will make you smile. Highly recommended for those looking for "fluff" or "slice of life". In a nice twist, we have a Ron who doesn't go on the typical "All Slytherins are Evil" cliche speech that are prevalent in Harry/Slytherin pairing fics.

Twins by Andrius
Summary: In an act of desperation, Harry invites Flora Carrow to the Yule Ball. He never expects to having to entertain her twin sister Hestia too.
Review: 4th Year Divergence One-Shot where Harry and Ron take a different set of twins to the Yule Ball. Not sure I'd call this one "fluff", but this was still cute in it's own way. Harry/Flora/Hestia pairing.

Thank you for the rec's, I really liked "Ice Cream" though "Twins" was also good.

And here's my next rec.

And Then an Owl Flew into the Kitchen
It came one sunny Saturday morning, the air still cool and damp from an overnight thunderstorm. The birds outside chirped merrily—at least, the ones whose beaks weren't full of big, juicy worms. Or mail.

It's older, so it might have already been rec'd before.
TBH, I'm kinda divided on the ending a bit, but it's a wonderful character piece.
 
My recent rec's in the Naruto forum were also made with you in mind as well.

I wanted to thank you for the rec's. I've pretty much left the Naruto Fandom but I gave those a read and enjoyed them.

And now for my rec of the day!
The Merging
This is a well written What If that starts when Dudley Dursley accidentally snaps Harry's wand before he's able to cast the Patronus charm, causing the Dementor's to try and give Harry a kiss which in turn causes a lot of issues. This is, in my opinion, the pinnacle of fanfiction.

That's a shame, because there are still a lot of good stories coming out of that fandom. Though I am glad you liked the ones I rec'd. While I wouldn't call "Merging" the pinnacle of fanfiction, I enjoyed that one as well. It's been on my list of fics to recommend, I just haven't gotten around to doing that just yet.

That being said... I have more rec's of my own to make.

A Fate Touched in Middle Earth by Vimesenthusiast
Summary: Following a disasterous battle in the Death Chamber, a grief-stricken and berserk Harry tackles Voldemort into the Veil of Death. After a fight for his soul, the death dimension eventually spits him and Voldemort into an unknown realm. There, after dispatching Voldemort a final time, Harry finds himself meeting Thorin Oakenshield.
Review: Harry Potter/The Hobbit Crossover, though based more on the movies than the books. WIP. Future Harry/Tauriel, past Harry/Hermione. The divergence point for the Harry Potter portion of the fic comes during the events of Book 1, as Harry goes to save Hermione from the troll by himself. That being said, unlike many other fics where something like that happens, Harry and Ron stay friends. Pretty much only the first chapter takes place in the HP-verse, with Voldemort and Harry ending up in the Tolkien movie-verse for their final confrontation. There are a number of character deaths for a number of people even before that point- particularly Ron and Hermione. From there, Harry, armed with his wand and the basilisk impregnated Sword of Gryffindor, meets Thorin before he makes his way to The Shire and joins the Dwarves and Bilbo on their quest for the Lonely Mountain. Because of Harry, Bilbo's integration into Thorin's company is smoother, as is the War Council at Rivendale. Conversely, their imprisonment at Mirkwood is arguably worse. Also, Harry spends the first several chapters mourning his lost friends (particularly Hermione, whom he knew for sure was dead before his trip through the Veil). One interesting facet this fic explores is the fact that HP and Tokien magic works differently. In fact, it's a plot point. The fic only has 10 Chapters and is still being updated, per the author's somewhat random writting schedule, with Thorin's company having just having escaped Mirkwood and having just met up with Bard, who looks to be more willing to help them than in canon. Another, somewhat amusing, plot point is the Sword of Gryffindor itself. Since it was made by HP-verse Goblins, everyone notes how differently it was crafted from every other weapon style known on Middle Earth- with many likening it to Elvish make, but not quite.

Getting Too Old For This by ManMadeOfLasers
Summary: Harry Potter finds himself, and his normal bi-polar luck, pulled out of a quiet retirement and into the limelight of the 23rd Century. Hr finds a grand new stage upon which his 'saving people thing' can act and, before he can say no, is pulled into the middle of a galaxy-spanning conflict.
Review: Crossover with Mass Effect. No ships. Complete Fic with Sequel in the works. This fic is about a nearly 200 year old, seemingly immortal man-child Harry who has made some unfortunate choices in where to try and settle down as he attempts to adhere to the "call to agriculture". In fact, Harry had attempted to settle down on Akuze, Elysium AND Eden Prime. Despite his irreverent attitude, his bad-ass cred can't be ignored, and the Citadel Council names him the 1st Human SPECTRE, with the Alliance assigning Commander Jane Shepard to be his babysitter. That being said, his antics do eventually catch up with him.
