* ''Comments'': A seven fic series and related oneshot "Maze of Light," each novel-length work replaces its corresponding canon counterpart, and Lightning increasingly diverges from the source. Despite the oft-(mis)used premise "what if Slytherin!Harry had a BWL!twin," the plot manages to stay original and creative throughout, with truly inspiring [[ShoutOut shout-outs]] to canon events. Canon characterizations aren't exactly possible, but there's a surprising amount of Original Flavor nonetheless. [[MagnificentBastard Snape]] is especially brilliant, and while Lightning never loses sight of the reality that spawned him, he progresses to the point of possibly being better than what JKR ever got around fleshing out. BE WARNED: the author really knows how to [[AnyoneCanDie turn on the water-works]], and pays careful attention to everything -- which means that while character interaction often = CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming and setting establishment/development = MadeOfWin, wartime realities = NightmareFuel. The dark tone does threaten to overwhelm things occasionally, but Lightning somehow knows just when things are heading towards unbearable, and is as good at inducing CrowningMomentOfFunny as she is at creating tension.

* Dr. Platypus, first and foremost knows how to write. His [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7107397/1/The_Harry_Potter_Fans_Song Fan Song]] and [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7078693/1/Lord_Voldemorts_Favorite_Things Voldemort Song]] are amazingly well-written and funny as well. He's also got a pretty fleshed-out American Wizarding story that's 100% complete to read through. Give him a try if you like good characters, full worlds, and exploring JK Rowling's world all over again through new, American eyes.

* @/{{Pastykake}}: Seconded for the short stories that delve into history and imagine the origins of the names of Hogwarts and its founders, or of Durmstrang's mysterious location.

* Northumbrian claims that while he appears to be writing several stories, he is in fact only writing one. Which in practical terms means that all his stories can be placed into one long continuity, which in turn fits around canon events and beyond, and explores bits and pieces of the Wizarding world and its various characters that canon for various reasons only glanced at. While Harry and Ginny are the stars of most the stories, several of them focus on secondary or minor characters and explores what they're getting up to while the big plots take place. The characterizations are good, the [=OCs=] that show up are engaging (such as the Muggle couple who end up as Harry and Ginny's neighbors, whose children make friends with James, Albus and Lily) and the dialogue sounds a lot like something that could have been in the canon books.

[[http://harrypottercomics.net Harry Potter Comics]]'''' post-book comic series by Travers & Rioux Jordan. (Canon-Compliant)
* Recommended by Swiftbow
** Seconded by @/{{Darkmane}}. Works unexpectedly well as a comic book, with pictures made from photos of lego toys. There's a highly interwoven storyline and it's done with a very generous touch of humour. Read with an open mind and do not expect anything too serious. Haters of comic books stay away; and by contrast it's a must read for comic book fans, as they will recognize and enjoy the change in narration, which works very well in graphic novel format.
* This is an ongoing webcomic (done with Harry Potter legos) following the plot after the epilogue of the books. It follows several different story arcs, including Harry, Ron, and Hermione, their children at Hogwarts, a set of villains who have combined Muggle technology with magic, and a displaced Muggle Sheriff and his Deputy. From Texas. It updates twice a week.
* And it has a [[HarryPotterComics tvtropes page!]]

* Recommended by windweaver19, nomnom07
* ''Synopsis'': Starting out as a basic Albus and Slytherin fic, Vekin87 expands J.K. Rowling's world by introducing a variety of new characters, including the likes of wizarding vigilantes and morally ambiguous villians. Vekin's storys touch on themes like totalitarianism, the constant struggle between the public and the government, and ultimately, whether or not killing is right.

* ''Comments'': When I first read these stories I had to remind myself quite harshly that it wasn't canon. Vekin does a good job of blending canon bits with his own ideas for an entertaining read that is still very reminiscent of Rowling's story. Several of the characterizations are funny and he's almost as good at sparking EpilepticTrees among his fans as Rowling is. Story is in progress and has just recently finished book 5. He is currently working on his sixth book. He is the first (or one of) Harry Potter fanfiction authors to be on the road to completing all seven books. An absolutely amazing read. Some say his last few books are even better than Rowling's. Now that the series is finished, it's obvious what a DoorStopper it managed to become, with a word count higher than the official series, by about 100 thousand words, the 6th book being even longer than the infamously long OotP.
