* There's a school class which pairs the characters to learn how to be grown-ups, normally by making them live together as a married couple in the Room of Requirement, take care of a magically created baby, and (of course) fall in love. Because putting hormonally fuelled teenagers together, and making a child you plan to ''delete'' in a couple of months, [[UnfortunateImplications isn't morally wrong. At all.]]

* Harry's real father is Severus Snape, not James Potter (despite canon repeatedly saying that Harry looks almost ''exactly'' like his father did at the same age. Sometimes this is [=Handwave=]d, more often [[TheyJustDidntCare it's just ignored]].)

** The idea of a 'double witch' is mocked in The Methods of Rationality, as a wish fulfillment fantasy for young witches and wizards who want to have "special magical powers". Hermione realized at this point that witches and wizards don't really seem to appreciate their powers at all.

*** Fics where the abuse is [[{{retcon}} retconned]] have become more common. Often starting when Harry is still an infant, and often to the point where broken bones are a common result. Harry being skin and bones due to starvation (despite explicitly stating the Durlseys never let him starve) is common, too. The fic will rarely address how this hasn't stunted Harry's growth, or how no one has managed to notice until now.

* Harry Is Raised Differently: For whatever reason, Harry ends up not being abused ''exactly like'' the books portray, even in cases where he's still with the Dursleys, which results in him having a totally different personality come Hogwarts. This may be justified by his NiaveNewcomer status in canon, or just using Harry as an OC stand-in; a number of these fics have Harry becoming a Marty Stu, but it's not universal.

**** And these fanfiction writers never bother attempting to explain why Voldemort didn't simply walk in and kill him, if the protections did nothing.

*** As pointed out in several fics, the so-called super special blood protection wards are actually pretty worthless considering they doesn't protect against Dementors, Death Eaters, or [[AbusiveParents the Dursleys themselves]] and even the claim that it protects against Voldemort seems kind of dubious considering that: (1) Harry never considered Privet Drive to be [[ExactWords his home]], it was merely the residence he was tortured in, so there is some question whether the wards ever existed at all; (2) Harry never received any "love" at Privet Drive and these super special bloodwards were supposed to run on the "PowerOfLove"; (3) [[spoiler: Voldemort takes Harry's blood for his resurrection]] rendering the "blood protection" useless; (4) TheReveal that Harry is [[spoiler: Voldemort's horcrux]] and since the wards are keyed around Harry, Voldemort may have been on the Privet Drive "invited in" list from the very beginning; (5) If the wards exist they are only keyed to the house and Harry doesn't live his entire life inside the house--indeed he is often outside going to school, doing chores like washing the car, weeding the garden, mowing the lawn, cleaning the drains, and running to the store on errands for the Dursleys. He's also often outside, in the park trying to avoid the wrath and vitriol of Vernon and Petunia and trying to escape being beaten to a bloody pulp by Dudley and his gang. These fics tend to ignore the fact that the blood protection was activated by Petunia's act of taking Harry in, however reluctantly; they prevented any Death Eaters from finding Harry while he was a child (considering Bellatrix Lestrange was still on the loose, this was a serious danger); that the protection is what [[spoiler: stopped Quirrell from killing him in the first book]]; and that it is implied that's what [[spoiler: stopped Voldemort from being able to kill him in the Forest.]]
