** Keep in mind, there are very serious deviances from the style, tone, and even plot direction that Rowling uses in DH. In particular, Snape is a monster instead of a DoubleAgent. The tone and events are so dark that, compared to canon, everything feels off.
*** To put it more bluntly: everyone is '''OOC as hell''', and the author seems to hate the Canon.
*** ^ YMMV. I don't agree with all of Thanfiction's characterizations but I don't think they're completely OOC - almost all of his characters were a line or two in canon, anyway. I won't get into a debate about Neville here, but I will address the claim that he "seems to hate the canon". Thanfiction has said that he read HP and was not a fan of the genre - which makes sense, as HP was meant as kids/teens' books. The reason he started writing a fanfic for it is because a friend challenged him to write a one-shot. That one-shot, part of DAYD's chapter 1, spun enormously out of control and soon he had everything planned in his mind. So no, Thanfiction didn't write his stories out of undying love for canon and he writes in more of an adult genre than HP. But he does not hate it. He also has pointed out several times that just because he doesn't have every character completely adore Harry. I mean, what person, real or fictional, is truly universally liked? There are characters who are still great people but just don't like Harry. That does not mean the author feels that way, though! Neither does the fact that he has taken HP canon and created a more adult story out of it means that he hates original canon.
*** I wouldn't say he "hates" canon, just thinks that it would have been a better story if it had been written his way. But applying gritty realism to a fantasy story will only take you so far, and not everyone will like the clash of flavors.

** KomodoClassic: It's written entirely in dialogue, with different fonts and formatting for each person. Difficult to keep track of; I couldn't read it.
Contains one of the most awesome portrayals of Minerva [=McGonagall=] EVER.

* ''Comments'': A unique and insightful look into the character of Regulus Black. This fic is a short narration of Regulus writing the letter that Harry finds with the fake necklace horcrux, describing his thoughts and state of mind, and I have to say it's one of the better written Harry Potter fanfics out there. A must read for anyone interested in this ''very'' minor character.

* ''Comments'': An absolutely fantastic anthology series about numerous ''Literature/HarryPotter'' characters, both the main characters, major secondary characters, and minor characters. Each chapter, one hundred all together, focuses on ten little details about the characters. Many are humorous, heartwarming, and tearjerking. Very much in accordance with canon (with the exception of a few details established in interviews with and comments from J.K.Rowling), it absolutely nails the characterization established in the series, exploring and expanding upon it.

* Comments: Character focus on Katie Bell and Oliver Wood, both as pro Quidditch players. Post Deathly Hallows, spoilers ahoy. izzo is fantastic at writing the Quidditch sequences--especially considering she's writing Chasers and Keepers, neither of which were really featured in the books.

** Eleventhed by @/AdelePotter. This fic is ''terrifying'', but so, so good. As a diehard Ginny fan, I was so happy to find a story that really did her justice, showing her strength and bravery (she's a Gryffindor for a reason, after all), but also her naivete and innocence that made it so easy for Tom to control her. And the relationship between Tom and Ginny is just... eugh. You almost feel like you need a shower. Also, I have to agree with the troper above. Don't do what I did and read the fic late at night. Seriously.

** GAKDragon: [[TearJerker I cried when I read it the first time]], and I cried again now, re-reading it. What makes this introspective so sad and unique is how ''spot-on'' the author is when describing Dudley's moment of [[spoiler:HeelRealization. It's heart-breaking to see that moment creep up on Dudley as the story progresses.
