Harry Potter The HP Fic Recommendation Thread


Apparently a report-er

An OC-SI romance between a female Lovegood and Voldemort's father. The premise doesn't sound like much, right? Except the writing's quality is way, way above average, the characters are excellently handled (including the OC), serious issues are handled with care, not played for laughs and- well, just read it.
(Author's summary: Three years after he escaped from the nightmare forced upon him by the Gaunt wretch, Tom Riddle meets another witch.)

It's pretty much the only fic I've read in months that made me think 'I would recommend this with no reservations!'
I don't recall seeing it recommended, so this could count as a recommendation from me, but I'm more asking, what do people here think of right under their noses, the sequel to souls touch, and the future changes? The author is the same, but their original AO3 account got deleted for some reason. They are also the writer of the "Sarcasm and Slytherin" series.
I've read them and enjoyed both. The author's other series Sarcasm and Slytherin is pretty great also.
Yay, someone responded! Thanks!

This is what I imagine should be the example of a proper time-traveler!Harry. It starts at the end of the war where almost everyone Harry knows is dead, so Harry with Flitwick's help goes back in time to set things right. It goes off the rails in the later chapters by a bit but all in all is worth the read.

Side note; it was started back in '09 and was last updated this June.

That's actually really impressive. I can't think of too many other fics from that far back that are still updating.

Not really a story rec but it's an author who's stories follow a certain style, for the most part. They all take place throughout Harry's early childhood with the Dursley's being nice(ish) and go through his first year of Hogwarts. A few of his stories have Harry be a potioneer/wand craftier/chef/literal potter. They follow the same theme with different hooks.
They're worth the read if you have nothing else to do.

Here's a nice three-shot that has become one of my favorites. When Hermione's boyfriend causes trouble at her parent's BBQ, she calls her best friend to help.

I'm so sorry for the triple post, but I don't think that this story has been rec'ed yet and, really, the name says it all.
Harry is a Dragon, and that's okay
Uh, hate to break it to you but...
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.

Just something light and silly in a fandom that is becoming increasingly more focused on angst and serious tales.
Rec'd like two pages back.
