* Recommended by: @/FracturedArtifact
* ''Status'': Complete (160,000+ Words)
* ''Synopsis'': A new force has joined the war against Voldemort; a Machiavellian manipulator who has immense magical skill paired with an understanding of muggle science. In the process of executing her cunning plan, the whole main cast gets resorted into different houses, Hogwarts blows up (more than once), WWIII starts up, and a UFO appears in the night sky over London.
* ''Pairing(s)'': Harry/Hermione, Draco/Ginny, Cedric/Percy
* ''Tags'': Humor, Adventure, Resorting Fic, Sci-Fi elements, Strong Female Lead
* ''Comments'': One of the few fics to be the length of an actual book and also features the Villains defeated by their own ignorance of muggle technology. A complex, multifaceted plot, well developed story, good writing, and through the whole thing: guaranteed to make you laugh.

* ''Comments'': It's a fun romp of story. Set around 150 years after the Second Wizarding War ended in a truce Harry and Voldemort are placed in a position where they have to work together, in an often amusing relationship. The story can be a bit slow, but it's engaging and the payoff is worth it. Occasionally there's a sense of narrative causality; however, it is normally forgivable.

* Synopsis: October 1996. A 24 hour period in Harry Potter's life. Each chapter will represent 1 hour of real time. Summary details can be found inside the story. Tom Riddle is planning to end the war before it even begins. Dumbledore helps Harry and his friends do the same. WARNING - people acting OOC/ships are non-canon Chapter 24 is up (NO, it does not have Jack Bauer)
* Comments: Despite its at-times-poor grammar, the fic is overall very enjoyable and has moments of true brilliance. Watching the events of the story line up, and seeing the characters and their overlap in the ways that they do leads to some moments of that are truly amazing. Highly recommended to anyone who can get past the initial few chapters, which are admittedly not great.

* ''Updated comments by J_Shakespeare:'' This story is truly a masterpiece, and its synopsis frankly does not do the story justice. It is a tale of the Marauders' years at Hogwarts through the eyes of Remus, who must cope with lycanthropy and fight to keep his friends--for the first time in his life, he has friends!--from discovering his secret. Full of angsty goodness, but with good amounts of action and fluff to round it out as well. Personally, this story was what redeemed the Marauders in my eyes after learning less savory details about them in canon. Note: the story is currently at 105 chapters and over 600K words, and it is near the end of the summer before their third year. So time certainly is not breezing by! Updates have not been nearly as regular lately, and the author has been taking a break for several months now due to health issues. However, the story is not on a permanent hiatus and will be continued. Read it.

* ** ''Updated comments by J_Shakespeare:'' This story is truly a masterpiece, and its synopsis frankly does not do the story justice. It is a tale of the Marauders' years at Hogwarts through the eyes of Remus, who must cope with lycanthropy and fight to keep his friends--for the first time in his life, he has friends!--from discovering his secret.

* ''Comments:'' This story is just amazing. The characters seem to really just jump off the page, all of them have their pro and cons. They seem to be truly more than just one dimensional, from Malfoy to Crabbe. Also, the transgender Hermoine isn't as bad as it seems. He/she just really seems to be a guy stuck in a girls body and acts accordingly. Also, the brain damaged harry just seems to finish off the fic giving huge amounts of WAFF and genrally empathazing with everyone even a [[spoiler: troll]]
* I'd like to add that while the storyline is endearing, Snape does have some out of character moments. Hermes (the trans* Hermonie) is extremely believable as a character, however, could have been an OC, as this character doesn't resemble Hermonie very well at all. It is clear that the author does not like Draco Malfoy, and overlooks the canon relationship between he and Snape completely. The other first years the story follows (a couple from each house) are actually almost more interesting than the characters the summery emphasizes! Their own issues are much more gripping because they're easier to relate too. Vincent Crabbe is given a lot of characterization. All the characters are well written, even if they do deviate from canon. The fic was last updated in early June of 2012.

* Synopsis: "Sirius Black. He always was a brilliant actor. That's why no one ever really knew the real him. Well that was until Regulus finally discovers the secret he has been hiding. Sirius plans for no one else to find out, but when have plans ever worked out in the wizarding world?"
* Summary: No one knows the truth about Sirius' home life, not even James. When Sirius goes home for the summer, his mother gives him a terrible ultimatum that will break him down further than anyone should ever go. Sirius is the strongest person any of them know--but even he can't fight forever.
* Notes: This...is not a happy fic. Sirius is beaten down like crazy. It doesn't even feel like angst, because it's quite well-written. There are semi-frequent grammatical and spelling errors, but they don't detract from the story. And really? I just want to be Sirius' friend after reading this. [[PunctuatedForEmphasis Not. A happy.

* '''Synopsis''': The sixth year has begun in Hogwarts with the arrival of a new student who seems too familiar to the others just as Ron and Hermione experience difficulties in dealing with each other. What can this strangely familiar new student do? PostOotP.
* '''Summary''': Jared Blake is the strange new American transfer student to Hogwarts, but there's something... off about him (and his American accent). He's familiar, and yet, nobody can really put a finger on why. With the wizarding war looming close, and with Voldemort now in the open, this only serves to make them highly suspicious of him. It doesn't help that he seems to have taken special interest in the Golden Trio, with Hermione in particular. He has come to Hogwarts with a mission in mind, but what that mission is, Jared isn't keen to say.
* '''Notes''': I'll be honest, the fic has it's problems. The writing is a little dated, you can feel it's the author's early days of writing. The characters can sometimes be repetitive (take a drink every time Jared says he's got his father's temper), and it DOES make mention of the author's religion (Catholic) through RetConning one of the characters into being from a devout Catholic family and having the new DADA Teacher be a Catholic priest. However, outside this, the religion is surprisingly downplayed compared to other Harry Potter fics that bring in religion (no inexplicable chapels this time). The plot is interesting, even if the author has difficulty being subtle at times (by the end of the first chapter, it's extremely easy to recognise who Jared is). The new characters fit in well with the world and are interesting in their own right. It's also quite easy to see how it's clear to the reader who Jared is but not the characters themselves. The romance is underplayed, even though the relationship of two of the characters is ''very'' important to the plot. It's got comedy and the dramatic parts are quite well-written. It comes complete with a ResetButton (one that makes a degree of sense) so the story doesn't interfere with the actual events of Book 6, and where things may differ from canon, they are actually explained.

* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': Harriett Potter dreams of going to Hogwarts, but in a universe where the school only accepts purebloods, the only way to reach her goal is to switch places with her pureblood cousin—the only problem? Her cousin is a boy.
* ''Summary'': As the author mentioned, this is a [[SongoftheLioness Song of the Lioness]] take on the Harry Potter series. The universe it takes place in is heavily AU. Tom Riddle never becomes Voldemort, instead becoming the leader of a political party. Due to his influence, Hogwarts now only accepts purebloods with British half-bloods and muggleborns having to go to the American Institute of Magic. Harriet Potter and her cousin, Arcturus (Archie) Black, son of Sirius Black, who just so happens to want to go to AIM. Like in Song of the Lioness, she and Archie switches places, fulfilling both of their dreams. Now all she has to do to is to survive her next seven years in Hogwarts [[SweetPollyOliver pretending to be a pureblood male heir]] in Slytherin. If only she could stop being a trouble magnet.

* Recommended by Ninja Marshwiggle



* ''Synopsis'': Dudleys Memories: Minerva needs help delivering another letter to #4 Privet Drive. At forty, Dudley is not at all what Harry expects. A long overdue conversation ensues. DH cannon compliant, but probably not the way you think
Snapes Memories: Harry is finding a healthy outlet for his "saving people thing" in the form of one damaged little boy. In doing so he finds himself thinking about his old teacher, quite a bit.
* ''Tags'': Discussions of past child abuse, Kidnapping
* ''Reviews'': Despite the characterisation occasionally feeling a little off to me these to truly are brilliant fics. The interactions are natural and fluid and the abuse (experienced by both Harry and Tim) is portrayed consistently and synthetically as well as realistically. The spelling and grammar is excellent and the pace of the stories is really nice and easy to read.

to:

* ''Synopsis'': "Sirius Black. He always was a brilliant actor. That's why no one ever really knew the real him. Well that was until Regulus finally discovers the secret he has been hiding. Sirius plans for no one else to find out, but when have plans ever worked out in the wizarding world?" No one knows the truth about Sirius' home life, not even James. When Sirius goes home for the summer, his mother gives him a terrible ultimatum that will break him down further than anyone should ever go. Sirius is the strongest person any of them know--but even he can't fight forever.
* ''Tags'': Angst, Friendship
* ''Comments'': This...is not a happy fic. Sirius is beaten down like crazy. It doesn't even feel like angst, because it's quite well-written. There are semi-frequent grammatical and spelling errors, but they don't detract from the story. And really? I just want to be Sirius' friend after reading this. [[PunctuatedForEmphasis Not. A happy.

* ''Synopsis'': "The sixth year has begun in Hogwarts with the arrival of a new student who seems too familiar to the others just as Ron and Hermione experience difficulties in dealing with each other. What can this strangely familiar new student do?" Jared Blake is the strange new American transfer student to Hogwarts, but there's something... off about him (and his American accent). He's familiar, and yet, nobody can really put a finger on why. With the wizarding war looming close, and with Voldemort now in the open, this only serves to make them highly suspicious of him. It doesn't help that he seems to have taken special interest in the Golden Trio, with Hermione in particular. He has come to Hogwarts with a mission in mind, but what that mission is, Jared isn't keen to say.
* ''Tags'': PostOotP, Romance, and Adventure
* ''Comments'': I'll be honest, the fic has it's problems. The writing is a little dated, you can feel it's the author's early days of writing. The characters can sometimes be repetitive (take a drink every time Jared says he's got his father's temper), and it DOES make mention of the author's religion (Catholic) through RetConning one of the characters into being from a devout Catholic family and having the new DADA Teacher be a Catholic priest. However, outside this, the religion is surprisingly downplayed compared to other Harry Potter fics that bring in religion (no inexplicable chapels this time). The plot is interesting, even if the author has difficulty being subtle at times (by the end of the first chapter, it's extremely easy to recognise who Jared is). The new characters fit in well with the world and are interesting in their own right. It's also quite easy to see how it's clear to the reader who Jared is but not the characters themselves. The romance is underplayed, even though the relationship of two of the characters is ''very'' important to the plot. It's got comedy and the dramatic parts are quite well-written. It comes complete with a ResetButton (one that makes a degree of sense) so the story doesn't interfere with the actual events of Book 6, and where things may differ from canon, they are actually explained.

* Synopsis: ''"Of course it's missing something vital. That's the point."'' Dennis Creevey takes up his brother's camera after the war.
* Notes: Also recommended on the FanficRecs/HarryPotterOneshots page.
* Comments: An amazing, emotional oneshot, which will bring tears to your eyes. It covers just what the cost of war is, and how much it takes away from those who are left behind. It is truly one of the best oneshots on fanfiction.net. That's an objective 'best' too - It's just over 1600 words, long, but has over 1300 reviews, and over FIVE THOUSAND favourites. For reference; most good stories have a words;favourites ratio of 10:1.

* Synopsis: A new force has joined the war against Voldemort; a Machiavellian manipulator who has immense magical skill paired with an understanding of muggle science. In the process of executing her cunning plan, the whole main cast gets resorted into different houses, Hogwarts blows up (more than once), WWIII starts up, and a UFO appears in the night sky over London.
* Pairings: Harry/Hermione, Draco/Ginny, Cedric/Percy
* Notes: Resorting Fic, Sci-Fi elements, Strong Female Lead
* Comments: One of the few fics to be the length of an actual book and also features the Villains defeated by their own ignorance of muggle technology. A complex, multifaceted plot, well developed story, good writing, and through the whole thing: guaranteed to make you laugh.

* ''Premise:'' After year 5, Harry Potter hits the limit of his frustration and flees to Magical America to continue his schooling. Interweaves SliceOfLife as Harry and a cast of [=OCs=] become friends and come of age at the Great Lakes Magical Institute, and wartime and espionage drama as events in England conspire to draw Harry back into the war against Voldemort.
* ''Pairing:'' Harry/[=OC=]
* ''Comments:'' This fic has one of the best portrayals of Rufus Scrimgeour as a competent, intelligent, politically adept and thoroughly ruthless Minister of Magic I've seen in Harry Potter fic. The cast of [=OCs=] is well-detailed and developed, and Harry's [=OC=] girlfriend avoids the obvious pitfalls. Although Ron Hermione have the hardest time adjusting to Harry's sudden absence, no character gets RonTheDeathEater treatment -- not even Manipulative!Dumbledore, who is built up over the fic into an antagonist figure second only to Voldemort in Harry's view, only to have a shocking twist ending to his saga. At over 865,000 words, the author spends a ''tremendous'' amount of effort detailing his version of Magical America, the events of the war against Voldemort, and the political machinations surrounding Harry Potter, Scrimgeour, Dumbledore, and the Wizengamot. Contains everything from romantic comedy to technothriller espionage drama. Ends on its own personal 'in the far future' epilogue/happy ending. Goes heavily AU in some elements, most notably in the split between Voldemort and Greyback, the lack of horcruxes, the AlternateCharacterInterpretation of Dumbledore, and a significantly more intelligent and dangerous Peter Pettigrew. Highly recommended.
** mvdwege: Tentatively recommended. The Harry vs. the Order of the Phoenix dynamic is interesting, and fairly well written. Unfortunately the fic is marred by some bad writing that can be really jarring at times: expository asides that read more like private notes from the author to themselves, stilted dialogue, awkward paragraph breaks, and a romantic subplot that really does not develop at all, but is just stated to happen in about one chapter's worth of prose.

* Synopsis: A new force has joined the war against Voldemort; a Machiavellian manipulator who has immense magical skill paired with an understanding of muggle science. In the process of executing her cunning plan, the whole main cast gets resorted into different houses, Hogwarts blows up (more than once), WWIII starts up, and a UFO appears in the night sky over London.
* Pairings: Harry/Hermione, Draco/Ginny, Cedric/Percy
* Notes: Resorting Fic, Sci-Fi elements, Strong Female Lead
* Comments: One of the few fics to be the length of an actual book and also features the Villains defeated by their own ignorance of muggle technology. A complex, multifaceted plot, well developed story, good writing, and through the whole thing: guaranteed to make you laugh.
* Tags: ReSorting, Humor
