Added DiffLines:

* ''FanFic/ThePiecesLieWhereTheyFell'': On a regular basis, as the first six chapters are told from the point of view of one of the main characters (Xvital, Night Blade, Page Turner, Wind Breaker, Vix-Lei and Rex, in that order), and then switch up over the course of the rest of the story as the situation calls for it, with occasional P.O.V. segments by various other characters. Incidentally, over the course of chapters 1-48 (and not counting omakes), each of the new Bearers gets exactly eighteen segments each... and all the other characters, put together, ''also'' get a total of eighteen segments. (The authors swear this last part was completely unintentional.) It continues in the sequel ''Picking Up the Pieces'', though characters outside the new Bearers are getting more segments of their own this time around.

* ''FanFic/AChanceMeetingOfTwoMoons'': The story changes from Artemis to Luna's point of view (signaled by linebreaks) during the first five chapters. From chapter 6 on, there are two parallel versions of each chapter, one told from the POV of [[spoiler:Artemis in Luna's world and the other from the POV of Luna in Artemis's world. Some of them even show the same sequence of events from the differing characters' point of view.]]

** In ''The Cask'', the first chapter is written from the point of view of the man who finds the body; the next two-thirds of the novel follow the police inspector investigating the crime and arresting the prime suspect; and in the last third, the protagonist is a private detective trying to disprove the police case.
** In the first half of ''Golden Ashes'', the viewpoint character is Betty Stanton, a young widow ([[MostWritersAreWriters and aspiring novelist]]) who finds work as a housekeeper. A mystery develops at the house she's looking after, and the second half follows Inspector French as he investigates.

** There is also, somewhat bizarrely, a couple of sentences from Ron's point of view as he knocks out the troll in ''Philosopher's Stone''. Overall, point of view seems a little more flexible in book 1 than it is later in the series.

* ''MyImmortal'', although the issue is confused by bad writing. The POV character is usually Ebony, but one chapter starts with a note that this chapter is from "Darko"'s point of view. This rule is followed for a bit, but then one line starts with "Draco, Ebory and I", and after that it's back to Ebony's point of view.
