One can but try. ''HarryPotter and the Paradigm of Uncertainty'' by Lori Summers is one of the classics of the HarryPotter fandom, and is in brief a {{Continuation}} fic showing what the characters have been up to since leaving [[WizardingSchool Hogwarts]]. It focuses on the non-canonical [[{{Shipping}} relationship between Harry and Hermione]].

This simple description, however, fails to capture the full essence of the... [[MindScrew experience]] that is ''Paradigm of Uncertainty''. We have Harry as a spy. We have a new wizard war, a crossover with TheChangeover, an arch-villain not introduced until later on with a backstory that has to be seen to be believed, and lots of weird shenanigans on the way. None of which, amazingly enough, detracts from the well-written character-driven narrative.
