Dear Tom by Bobmin
  • Recommended by: Looney Toons, Dor, Twilight Shimmer, feral, Kazeto, Robinton
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: In the summer after the events of Order of the Phoenix, the Order's interception of Harry's mail reveals he is corresponding with Voldemort, and that Harry is starting to see things the Dark Lord's way.
  • Notes: Also recommended on the Harry Potter Oneshots page.
  • Comments: Amusing short with a twist at the end. The Order's growing panic — and efforts at damage control — are especially fun.

Wait, What? by esama
  • Recommended by: CathalPicard, feral, Dame-Amaryllis
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Dumbledore explains Lily why it is vital that Harry and his twin brother are separated.
  • Notes: Also recommended on the Harry Potter Oneshots page.
  • Comments: Awesome in the way that it deconstructs typical Potter family attitudes to the wrong boy who lived status quo.
  • Tags: For Want of a Nail, Parody

Roadkill by Piper Julian
  • Recommended by: theAdeptRogue, feral, Y.S. Jennis
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Voldemort avoided death as a spirit for 13 years. Strangely, he couldn't avoid a bus. One Shot.
  • Notes: Also recommended on the Harry Potter Oneshots page.
  • Comments: How a hilarious accident involving a bus brought Voldemort down. Ignores book 6 & 7.

The Naked Quidditch Match by Evilgoddss
  • Recommended by: Seanette, Scifantasy, Jefepato, Chuckg, Dor, Seraviel, Lost Lenore, force42, LifeShouldBeAMusical, TheMisterFree, Dame-Amaryllis
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: This is made up of "m-mails" exchanged among characters. Fred and George managed to put their teammates in a very embarrassing situation, and their responses are, to put it mildly, interesting.
  • Notes: Alternate link.
  • Comments: This is utterly hilarious. Original Flavor, with a twist. There used to be a "news story" wrapping it up, but I can't find it online anywhere. Would anyone else know where Chapter 10 can be found?
    • Seconded by Scifantasy: Here is chapter 10. No sign of the photoshopped-blue Fred and George, though.
    • Thirded by Ack Sed. Funniest fanfic ever. If the mentions of the bets on the Golden Snitches don't make you laugh, Harry's taunting of "Moldymort" or the glamour calendar will. Aaand it's in-character, too, except when it's funnier.
    • Fourthed by Jefepato. I read the concept and thought this was going to be stupid and oh god I can't stop laughing.
    • Fifthed by PhoenixFTW ... I can't stop laughing. It's amazing... 13 cm...
    • Roo: Sorry, but I just can't see that this is as hilarious as everyone says. I actually find it a very strong contender for Most Overrated Fic, maybe because of the huge OOC behavior of so many characters, especially Harry and Voldemort. I don't mind a bit of twisting/exaggeration of characters for comic effect, but Smug!Harry always rubs me the wrong way.
    • Sixthed by TheMisterFree: This fic is hilarious, and will leave you in tears by the end. Concerning Smug!Harry; he isn't really smug; more or less he's just trying not to go insane from the stuff he was dragged into against his will, and he eventually wises up to the business opportunities. Ol'Voldie, however, clearly did go insane; he also apparently watched Star Wars one too many times.

Hagrid And The Skoolgurlz by Kaku no Mono

Harry Potter and the Eagle of Truthiness by Christine Morgan
  • Recommended by: Ronfar, Unclouded TJ, Medicus, Mariecat, MKGR, feral, Thunderchin, Kazeto, Robinton
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Stephen Colbert becomes the new Defense Against the Dark Arts professor at Hogwarts.
  • Comments: It's not particularly long and doesn't have any real plot, but it's good for a few laughs.

Tom Riddle and the Goblet of Fire by Drakensis
  • Recommended by: Looney Toons, Sheaman3773, force42, feral, Robinton
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: In Harry Potter's seventh year, Minerva McGonagall stumbles across a strange ceremony on the roof of Hogwarts that employs the Goblet of Fire.
  • Notes: Also recommended on the Harry Potter Oneshots page.
  • Comments: One of the occasionally infuriating things about the Harry Potter books is that there are so many canon loopholes through which a sufficiently clever witch or wizard might have managed to defeat Voldemort long before he returned as a credible threat. This clever and amusing short lays out one such way, supported completely by canon, that Voldemort might have easily been neutralized.
    • Seconded by Bulbaquil — such a simple thing, too.
    • ShayGuy: Amusing, if trivially easy to think of reasons for it not working. Like, say, Voldemort no longer being a student.
    • Or there being no proof that the Goblet of Fire do that in particular to him.

All the Dementors of Azkaban by Lifewriter
  • Recommended by: Comartemis, Seraviel, boonerunner, force42, SteakAddictsAnonymous, Fenro, Kazeto, Robinton
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Luna Lovegood gets a one-way ticket to Azkaban for her role in opening the Chamber of Secrets. When Fudge refuses to release her, Harry takes matters into his own hands... by moving into the cell next door. Crack ensues.
  • Notes: Also recommended on the Harry Potter Oneshots page.
  • Comments: Probably the only Azkaban fic this troper will ever recommend, because its very existence makes a mockery of all "Harry gets sent to Azkaban" fics everywhere. Highlights include Harry taking history lessons from the inmates, Luna getting her hands on the Elder Wand, and Saturday night poker tournaments with the Dementors.
    • Seconded by Kereea. My favorite part was either the poker nights, or how, because of the poker nights, the Death Eaters start worshipping Neville as their new master.

Larceny, Lechery, and Luna Lovegood! by Rorschach's Blot
  • Recommended by: VortexRyder, Looney Toons, boonerunner
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Harry and Hermione make plans to carry out the Potter family legacy and rob the wizarding world blind. Ron ends up becoming a Dark Lord and starts his own harem while Mrs. Weasley plots to have hundreds of grandchildren. Dumbledore dedicates himself to tasting lemon pops to bring down a diabetic Voldemort. Snape is regularly violated and force fed copious amounts of yogurt at St. Mungo's psychiatric wing. Meanwhile, a Seer Luna indignant at not being ravished by their would-be-thieves spends her days desperately trying to turn the fic into a Harry/Hermione/Luna fic..
  • Comments: Like most other works by the Blot, this is a cracktastic cascade of craziness, growing inexorably from a few reasonable-sounding deviations from canon that send you off into unexplored comedic territory before you realize what you've done in accepting them. Full of fun little bits, such as Harry and Hermione setting themselves up as their own mortal enemies.

The Various Supah Powahs of One Severus Snape by lunakatrina
  • Recommended by: tenderlumpling, Fenro
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: Severus Snape falls into a vat of chemicals... And survives. But he has one problem: His new, nuclear nose smells everything, driving him to compulsively clean Hogwarts and every other dwelling he enters. While cleaning the Riddle house, he discovers a very unpleasant surprise about himself. Hilarity Ensues.
  • Comments: Severus Snape, Master and Commander... of Squirrels. That is all.

A Black Comedy by nonjon
  • Recommended by: Fellownerd, Seraviel, Sheaman3773, force42, Twilight Shimmer, abcdz, feral, Kogut, Blaziken386, Kazeto, Dame-Amaryllis
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Two years after defeating Voldemort, Harry falls into an alternate dimension with his godfather. Together, they embark on a new life filled with drunken debauchery, thievery, and generally antagonizing all their old family, friends, and enemies.
  • Comments: Anything by nonjon is pure crack genius.

Hedwig and the Goblet of Fire by Meteoricshipyards
  • Recommended by: Unclouded TJ, Robinton
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Harry uses Hedwig to test the restrictions on the Goblet of Fire. Obviously, they're not good enough to stop the smartest owl in Britain!
  • Notes: Also recommended on the Harry Potter Oneshots page.
  • Comments: The Blood Sharpie: Sure, it's crack, and yes, it's an rather intriguing premise, but the fic itself reads more like a story outline than an actual story. What took a whole book in canon is glossed over in about five minutes here. Good for a laugh, but don't read this looking for something engaging.

Voldemort and His Complicated Plans by Dink
  • Recommended by: Seven Of Diamonds
  • Status: ?
  • Synopsis: Deleted scenes from Goblet of Fire detailing why Voldemort went with such a convoluted plan when there were simpler options available.
  • Comments: The author takes the canon image of Voldemort as a scaly baby with a high pitched voice to its full comedic potential. Also, one of the more likable portrayals of Peter Pettigrew.
    • This story is a chapter in a larger series, titled The Harry Potter Code, which can be found here. The chapters have different names here than on the forum, for example Voldemort and His Complicated Plans is titled Questions Questions Questions Spoons.

Harry Potter is on FIRE! by Darkboy 77
  • Recommended by: Raxis
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: A parody story that goes far beyond crazy, stretching it to a breaking point and bringing it full circle.
  • Comments: Words can't describe how hilarious this story is, but this troper will try anyway. This story following the insane later years for Harry Potter, bringing all sorts of wackiness along the way. Female!Snape, Tiara!Voldemort, The House Point Hourglasses come alive in the sequal, Dumbledore likes to be Game Boy Advances! And that's just the start.

Made With Our Love by Marauder
  • Recommended by: sauronlulz, Darkaros, force42, feral
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Harry knows what he has to do: tell Draco that he's pregnant with their child.
  • Notes: Also recommended on the Harry Potter Oneshots page.
  • Comments: Short but hilarious sendup of mpreg fic.

Harry Potter & the Amorae Potion by Jiffer
  • Recommended by: Khym Chanur
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: Harry accidentally drinks an inverted love potion: rather than making him fall in love with the first girl he sees, it makes any girl who sees Harry fall in love with him. Hilarity Ensues.
  • Comments: The story is basically just Harry fleeing from his rapidly expanding Unwanted Harem. Graduates from mere silly comedy to crackfic when Moaning Myrtle tries to use Muggle firearms to kill Harry.

The Poker Game by Enterprise1701-d and Joshua The Evil Guy
  • Recommended by: Jonathan SCE, Darkaros, Looney Toons
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: A Harem/Contract fic. Taking place during Harryís sixth year with almost none of the plot of the book, Harry wins four indentured servants in a poker game due to some of the players betting themselves. One of whom was not even there because of Draco betting Pansy due to a Life Debt. Very clean, some innuendo and language.
  • Pairings: Harry Potter / Luna Lovegood, Susan Bones, Tracey Davis, Pansy Parkinson, Ginny Weasley, Cho Chang, Daphne Greengrass, Gabrielle Delacour, Nymphadora Tonks, Moaning Myrtle, Katie Bell, Parvati Patil, Padma Patil, Hannah Abbott and Hermione Granger
  • Comments: And it does not stop there, because after the poker game Harry gets more girls due to: two more Life Debts (which result in a slave contact), not paying attention to what they are signing, purposely cutting their ties to their family, claim to the Black inheritance, bringing a ghost back to life, a curse item, and to become the Leader of all Magic. The girls donít mind being attached to Harry, though. He also learns Egyptian, Sumerian and Indian Magic, turns the Chamber of Secrets into living quarters with a "holosuite", and creates a Magical AI (MI). Very well done story, taking in the feelings of each of the characters into account.
    • Darkaros: Warning, judging from reviews on FF.Net, people who have played poker before or care about details will want to skip the actual poker section. Very well written, but anyone who cannot tolerate wish fullfillment will want to avoid like a plague.
    • The relationships between the members of the harem/family/thing are well written, and it's entertaining to see the apparent rule of "one new girl per day" through the story and the characters' reactions to it, but the 'serious' bits have a really grating Harry as God-Mode Sue. Somewhat enjoyable, but only if you can hold your breath.

Harry Potter and Some Sorcerer's Rock by Silvver Phoenix
  • Recommended by: Rozzy
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: A one-shot parody of Sorcerer's/Philosopher's Stone. In the words of the author: "I'm insane, as is my writing. You have been warned."
  • Notes: Also recommended on the Harry Potter Oneshots page.
  • Comments: This fic is okay on it's own, but the sequels (Harry Potter and the Chamberpot of Secrets, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of a Cabana and Harry Potter and the Omelette of Desire) are some of the funniest and craziest fanfics I've ever read—and I first read them a long time ago. The sequels were taken off due to gratuitous (and hilarious) celebrity cameos, but can be found in all their glory at Silvver Phoenix's website. Highlights include Gangster!Twins Lil' Fred and Big G, Harry temporarily joining the Spice Girls and John Stamos being trapped under an overturned laundry basket.

Oh God Not Again! by Sarah1281
  • Recommended by: Unclouded TJ, Shadow AI, Darkaros, MKGR, SunnyNights, Fenro, SteakAddictsAnonymous, Mazz, Hedgi, Serenity rose, Telcontar, pisoprano, Kogut, feral, Phaethon, RagnarTheSemiGreen, Robinton, Vercalos, Henry42, Pastykake, Dame-Amaryllis
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: So maybe everything didn't work out perfectly for Harry. Still, most of his friends survived, he'd gotten married, and was about to become a father. If only he'd have stayed away from the Veil, he wouldn't have had to go back and do everything again.
  • Notes: Also recommended on the Harry Potter Peggy Sue page.
  • Tags: Parody, Peggy Sue

Pledges by Amireal
  • Recommended by: lastcrazyhorn
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Screwed up spells, attacks on hogwarts, Potions Masters who dearly wish he had actual control over his life.
  • Pairing: Snape/Harry
  • Comments: This fic is crazy fun. Harry accidentally pledges himself to Severus with an old engagement spell that results in many hilarious encounters where they are almost literally unable to keep their hands off one another. On one hand, they really can't stand each other (at least at first), but because of the spell, they can't stay away from one another without going crazy. An example of Aliens Made Them Do It.

The Incredible and Angsty Journey of Rose Weasley, Girl Slasher! by nextgen_mod
  • Recommended by: jakelikescheddar
  • Synopsis: Rose Weasley discovers the Internet, and immediately commences Shipping. The tale of one Yaoi Fangirl's attempts to break through the Wizarding World's homophobia and get the rest of her compatriots to recognise how happy they'd be if they accepted the One True Pairings.
  • Notes: Also recommended on the Harry Potter Oneshots page.
  • Comments: A stunningly precise skewer is delivered to all aspects of Slash Fic in the HP fandom, featuring plenty of Cringe Comedy and deadpan delivery.

Odd Ideas by Rorschach's Blot
  • Recommended by: Oracle Seven, jaimeastorga2000, force42, Looney Toons, Robinton
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: Odd little one shots that may or may not be turned into their own stories.
  • Comments: This is clearly the source from which all of author's best work springs forth. Every chapter features something new and even more hilarious than the previous chapters - aside from the odd serious idea or a revision of a previous idea. While it's generally written in a very rough style, that doesn't detract from the entertainment value at all. As of this writing, it's one hundred and forty-six chapters long - and still growing!

A Little Light Reading By Dullastacks
  • Recommended by: Shimmer712, force42
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: Snape reads the first Harry Potter book and sets about fixing things.
  • Notes: Can be downloaded here.
  • Comments: I love the remarks Snape makes while reading.
    • The Blood Sharpie: A very good story, and one that lends itself to credibility by way of a plot in the "outside" world as well as the bolded text that Snape is reading. While it's not that hard to skip everything but Snape making snarky comments at the book, the "outside" plot gets its Cerebus moment with the "inside" world sentence "Harry was used to spiders, because the cupboard under the stairs was full of them, and that was where he slept."
    • Dead Fic now, sadly. The author has, due to a contract with a publishing company, Stopped writing Fanfic (though someone seems to have archived all of it, despite the author's attempt to remove it).

Hogwarts In Season by HRT
  • Recommended by: Goodwrench
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Marauder fic. James, Sirius, and Peter notice a series of odd events that occur in Remus' vicinity and turn detective to discover what the heck is going on.
  • Comments: Very nutty and whimsical. First-year Marauder fic at its goofiest.

How The Brazilian Boa Constrictor Did Not Help Harry Potter Defeat Voldemort by Marauder
  • Recommended by: Lost Lenore, Fenro
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Hermione has given Harry an idea on how to defeat Voldemort, but the boa constrictor isn't convinced...
  • Notes: Also recommended on the Harry Potter Oneshots page.
  • Comments: The first line is rather amusing, and the plan is rather amazing. Pity it doesn't work.

Physical Education by Adrian Tullberg
  • Recommended by: Goodwrench, Kazeto
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: A new Physical Education teacher arrives at Hogwarts.
  • Comments: As Joseph Conrad put it, "The horror, the horror."

The Wendell That Wasn't by opalish
  • Recommended by: greeneyesrock, force42, Fenro, bhadratheboss
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: After Snape dies, his ghost is sent back to haunt the Potter family. The true story of how the Potter children got their names.
  • Notes: Also recommended on the Harry Potter Oneshots page.
  • Comments: Absolutely hilarious. Complete crack, done extremely well.
    • bhadratheboss: Really well done and funny. :D

The Thief of Hogwarts by bluminous8
  • Recommended by: belton180, Unclouded TJ, feral
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: Young Harry learns to steal as he is fed up from his deprivation of his wants and needs by his guardians. A Thief is born in Privet Drive.
  • Comments: AU where Harry learns to become a thief. Funny parts include Harry stealing the Sorting Hat, Quirrell sneaking the troll in after the feast, the reveal of Harry's Animagus form and more.
    • The grammar is bad, though. It's not So Bad, It's Good level grammatical error, but there are many, many small ones all over the fic, so if that bothers you then this may not be the fic for you.

Scorpius Malfoy and the Improbable Plot by opalish
  • Recommended by: RealityPhobia, force42, amatakamata
  • Synopsis: Scorpius really should have listened to his father's numerous and dire warnings about the Potter clan. Harry feels his pain. Gen crackfic WIP, yo. Seriously, so cracky.
  • Comments: I hate next gen fics. That said, this is one of my favorites. Harry's still a main character, but now we get the added fun of him attempting to be some sort of authority figure for about eight children, most of which are insane (but loveable) in some way or another. Starts off sort of slow, but it builds. Branches off into an AU where Voldy's still around after James Sirius and Scorpius do something stupid. It had my sides splitting all the way through. Be warned, though, it hasn't updated in a while.
    • My favorite humor fic of all time.
    • "Did you know that the magical world had never even heard of therapy until you and Aunt Ginny reproduced?" Victoire asked, in what Harry wished he could believe was a total non sequitur. "And now it's the fastest growing field in magical Britain."

The Misadventures of Draco Malfoy, Ferret by Saber ShadowKitten
  • Recommended by: force42
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Snape turns Draco into a ferret for his own protection. He would've been safer with the Dark Lord.
  • Comments: This fic takes the crack so far it comes back around to be both believable and good.
  • Warnings: Beastiality, squick, mpreg(ish, as Draco was a female ferret at the time), slash

Once Upon a Freakin' Time by Evadne
  • Recommended by: werewolf42, Fenro
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: The Death Eaters attempt to do bad things, but mostly just do things badly.
  • Comments: Various one shots of the Death Eaters. Stories include Snape joining the Death Eaters for a quarter, Voldie and Sauron arguing over names, the Death Eaters attempting a bake sale, and other such nonsense. Absolutely hilarious.

On A Train, Switching Tracks by Mede
  • Recommended by: Aromli, Unclouded TJ, TheForgottenOne, Fenro, Looney Toons, Kazeto, Puidwen
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: First year: "Celebrities," Harry said. "Fame makes them mad. I take it the wizarding world doesn't really have them, then?" Draco and Ron exchanged glances. "No, not really." AU, assorted oneshots and snippets.
  • Comments: Features an innocent and insanely curious Ravenclaw!Harry whose very existence seems to make Hilarity Ensue. Hijinks include teaching Fluffy 'sit and shake' and tying himself to the Whomping Willow for hippogriff rights. Also, Draco-Ron-Neville-Harry friendship in a way that isn't just funny — it's aww-worthy. Still makes me smile every time I read it.

Harry Potter and the Something Something by Legendary Legacy
  • Recommended by: TheForgottenOne, feral, Crinias
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: Hey, wouldn't it be cool if someone took as many fanfic cliches as possible and stuffed them all into one story? No? Well, I went ahead and did it anyway. Multi-chapter Mockfic.
  • Comments: Just hilarious. Harry from the main canon universe suddenly wakes up one morning to finds himself back in the cupboard under the stairs, and then is proceed to be hit with an endless cliche parade. Starting off with the "Vernon is more evil than Voldemort" cliche. Takes place in the summer after his 5th year in Hogwarts.

Harry Potter and the Hogwart's Day of Compliments by Drea Leeways
  • Recommended by: maronk
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: In third year, Dumbledore gets an crazy idea: give each other compliments, otherwise you get stuck together, whether you like it or not, until the charm he has cast wears off at the end of the day. Chaos and hilarity ensues.
  • Notes: Also recommended on the Harry Potter Oneshots page.
  • Comments: Despite the near lack of reviews, it is really good and funny, not to mention quite long for a one shot.

Enchanted Parchment by SS19
  • Recommended by: mad4t, Fenro
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: Shows the events of The Sorcerer's Stone via conversations between Dumbledore and Snape on an enchanted piece of parchment (that works pretty much like IM).
  • Comments: It's mostly silly fun, with a slightly loopy Dumbledore and a sarcastic but well-meaning Snape. There are a few poignant moments spread throughout.

He's Not Normal by Uncle Stojil
  • Recommended by: SteakAddictsAnonymous, Unclouded TJ, Robinton
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: Harry Potter goes back in time and has to start everything again. Do you think he will be careful not to screw the timeline up? No, he doesn't even think about it! A story featuring a loony Harry and a Magical World that seems willing to adapt to him. (Basically, in which Harry goes back in time and kind -of trolls everybody.)
  • Comments: Silly, lighthearted and fun to read. Quite refreshing.
    • Unclouded TJ: A very good story however keep in mind it hasn't been updated since May of 2010.

Hermione Writes Bad Fanfiction by 3theCaptain
  • Recommended by: ParkourPaisho, GamesOfTheVideo, Y.S. Jennis
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: A fanfiction about Hermione writing a fanfiction about herself writing a fanfiction about herself.
  • Notes: Also recommended on the Harry Potter Oneshots page.
  • Comments: Supremely meta and has to be read to be believed. It's a one-shot, so it's a really quick and easy read. It somehow SIMULTANEOUSLY plays straight AND parodies lemon. It starts off really well-written (enough to make you think it could be a serious story) then dissolves into hilarious trollville, only to snap back to reality at the last minute. It's a good bet, whether you're looking for a quick laugh or want to really think about the way good writers can become My Immortal knock offs. Last comment: plays Draco in Leather Pants LITERALLY. Hilarity Ensues.

Harry Potters Anonymous by Lifewriter
  • Recommended by: SteakAddictsAnonymous, feral
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Oneshot, crack. An extradimensional meeting of supernatural beings is crashed by none other than Harry Potter.
  • Notes: Also recommended on the Harry Potter Oneshots page.
  • Comments: In a nutshell, the Harry Potters of every respective fanfiction get together for a group meeting. The ensuing Hilarity is quite fun.

A Werewolf Conspiracy Theory by Mossy Stone
  • Recommended by: Newt
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: James thinks there's a werewolf at Hogwarts. Sirius and Peter aren't too sure.
  • Notes: Also recommended on the Harry Potter Oneshots page.
  • Comments: A short, fairly funny read.

Lessons With Hagrid by NothingPretentious
  • Recommended by: geek0girl0extraodinare, Unclouded TJ, Looney Toons, SashaHoneypalm, Robinton
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: "Have you found out how to get past that beast of Hagrid's yet?" Snape kicks Harry out of 'Remedial Potions', but as we know from The Philosopher's Stone, there is another Occlumens in the school good enough to keep out the Dark Lord.
  • Notes: Also recommended on the Harry Potter Oneshots page.
  • Comments: Far from stupid, this is one of the funniest things I've read in a while. It manages to keep the characters in character, while exploring something so far and away from the original. While being devastatingly funny, of course.

Luna Lovegood's Ten Steps to Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse by Ayla Pascal
  • Recommended by: piekage
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Harry never thought that he would ever need to use Luna's ten point plan to surviving a zombie attack.
  • Notes: Also recommended on the Harry Potter Oneshots page.
  • Comments: Seeing Harry discuss the logistics of Luna's ten point Zombie guide is downright hilarious, as is her earnest belief of the neccessity of such a guide, made all the more funny when Zombies do actually pop up. There is some brief NC-17 material at Step 6, but it's incredibly touching regardless. An easy recommend for any Luna fan.

The Problem with Homonyms by Polydicta
  • Recommended by: eostby, Kazeto, Robinton
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: He shall have the power he knows not. Simple, right? Wrong...
  • Notes: Also recommended on the Harry Potter Oneshots page.
  • Comments: One of the most unique "Powers He Knows Not" I've ever seen. Brief mentions of H/Hr, but not a central plot point. Sometimes, all it takes is a little snake-charming...

Many Glories: A Harry Potter Crackfic by SorenGladfeldt
  • Recommended by: DieSkrywer1993
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: Harry and Luna have gotten married, have a son named Greg, and they send him off to the "clone of Hogwarts" in "the Dimension on the Other Side of the Mirror". Hilarity Ensues.
  • Comments: This fic reads like the author was dropping acid while alternating between Harry Potter and The Economist! "Soren" also spoofs, subverts, and inverts too many tropes to count in hilariously insane way. Characters include "Baritt Obamney", and "Sevmus Lupnape". Has to be seen to be believed.

Sphere of Influence by Bobmin
  • Recommended by: Milarqui, Robinton
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Harry's trip through the Department of Mysteries reveals the mysteries behind the department. Watch as the Unspeakables struggle to recover control of their own workplace and face the consequences of Harry's actions.
  • Notes: Also recommended on the Harry Potter Oneshots page.
  • Comments: This story is told through intra-department memos between the Boss, the heads of Research and Security, and a few others. The characters make constant reference to Noodle Incidents from the department's past, comments about the present and side bets that make this entire one-shot a magnificent thing to read in a boring afternoon.

The Game by NamelesslyNightlock
  • Recommended by: Newt
  • Status: Dormant
  • Synopsis: Seventh year Gryffindors all decide they need a bit of fun and Sirius suggests Truth or Dare, but with a twist. Will it really go for a week non-stop? And what is with the parchment?
  • Comments: The Marauders, Lily, Frank, Alice and Hestia all play a Game of Truth or Dare with hilarious dares. Long, but very funny WIP.

  • Notes: Also recommended on the Harry Potter Oneshots page.
  • Comments: Starts off serious, but then becomes just as silly as the title suggests. Extremely childish and OOC, but good for a quick laugh.

Quack! by Alliriyan

  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Neville's most spectacular Potions failure ever. "You have twelve minutes to complete your cackhanded concoctions and hand them in to me." Snape is going to wish he never said those words...
  • Notes: Also recommended on the Harry Potter Oneshots page.
  • Comments: "Spectacular" is one of the few words that can describe this One Shot. Another is "Hysterical." May or may not be Crack, but it's disturbingly possible.

A Kiss of Clichéd Proportions by butalearner
  • Recommended by: Kogut
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: It had all started with a kiss. Not just any kiss, mind, but a kiss he never expected. If that sounds like a cliché, that's because it is... and it's far from the only one.
  • Notes: Also recommended on the Harry Potter Oneshots page.
  • Comments: Parade of clichés, especially from soul bond, harem and super!Harry fics ("By the way," Hogwarts voice sounded in their heads, "you are all now animagi with unlimited forms, including dragons and phoenixes with their full magical abilities. Not that it matters, I just wanted to inform you.")

  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Dumbledore found another living relative for Harry to live with. One who is the most electrifying man in all of entertainment.
  • Comments: This is...this is something. It's sheer lunacy. It's Harry Potter being raised by WWE Superstar The Rock. And there are so many one-liners, oh my god. Hearing "The Harry" cut a promo on Voldemort and call him "Homeless Darth Vader" is just...oh my god.

  • Recommended by: feral, Komodo Classic, Kazeto

  • Comments: Absolutely hilarious, featuring the Hufflepuff Shadow Council, which is sheer genius.

Relaxing Holidays (was the plan, anyway) by EcoWarriorX
  • Recommended by: Komodo Classic
  • Status: ?
  • Synopsis: After a stressful sixth year, McGonagall tells Snape's friends to make sure he relaxes on holiday. Cue Regulus with his novel idea- a slightly different camping trip. More Slytherins than intended decide to come- and when all too well-known acquaintances turn up, chaos ensues...
  • Notes: Has a reformatted oneshot version, What I Did On My Holiday, as Told By Me, Severus Snape.
  • Comments: In which we discover that Gryffindors are bad planners, Slytherins are people too, Death Eaters have hidden depths, and Regulus Black is something of an idiot. Quite humorous, though it masquerades as a semi-serious fic until you notice the subtle air of overall ridiculousness. (It's much more apparent in the condensed, oneshot version.) Short, definitely worth a look.

Lily And The Art Of Being Sisyphus by The Carnivorous Muffin
  • Recommended by: feral, Unclouded TJ, Dame-Amaryllis
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: In which Lily Potter is not quite a normal little girl. Her uncle Death seems to be convinced she's the grim reaper. And her ever political and invisible best friend Wizard Lenin just thinks she should take over the world. On top of all that the secret society of wizards think she's Jesus. AU. Fem!Harry.
  • Notes: Also recommended on the Harry Potter: For Want of a Nail page.
    • Has a lot of one shot side stories, not all of which fit in its own canon.

101 Ways to Kill Umbridge by Espoir Noir
  • Recommended by: CJ Croen 1393
  • Synopsis: Sick to death of his DADA professor, Ron decided to compile this list.
  • Status: Dead
  • Comments: A really funny story (okay, "story" is not quite the right word for it) and certainly worth a read if you hate Umbridge and love the Golden Trio acting like the dorky high school students they are. It gets even better when the teachers confiscate the list...and then make additions to it!

Seventh Horcrux by Emerald Ashes
  • Recommended by: Sieses Detkrah, Unclouded TJ, feral, Mister Tulip, Robinton
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: The presence of a foreign soul may have unexpected side effects on a growing child. I am Lord Volde...Harry Potter. I'm Harry Potter. In which Harry is insane, Hermione is a Dark Lady-in-training, Ginny is a minion, and Ron is confused (and sometimes bait).
  • Comments: In which Voldemort only rose to power because he got really drunk at some point after being denied the DADA position, admits to having tried out an incredibly dark ritual without reading what sort of effects it'll have on him outside of a brief summary, and respects the Dursleys for realizing how evil he was when even he had difficulties remembering his time as the Dark Lord. And that's just stuff from the first chapter.

Harry Potter, the Geek by Andrius

Where In The World Is Harry Potter? by Nonjon
  • Recommended by: MiriOhki, Kazeto
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Voldemort has been defeated, and ever since then, Harry Potter has disappeared. Most are too relieved to care, but Hermione Granger and Nymphadora Tonks are on a search for their missing hero. One who seems to have made it his mission in life to troll the entire wizarding world. Getting the help of the only marginally sane Defence against the Dark Arts teacher, Nicholas Flamel himself, they have made it their sworn mission to bring the cheeky bastard back by any means necessary. The problem, of course, is once you have a tiger by the tail, what do you do then? Besides get trolled even harder...
  • Notes: Has two sequels, The Untitled Cheequel Project and You Did What?!, also complete.
  • Comments: A supremely powerful Harry, but only because it plays into the humor. Voldemort's death is glossed over and that's just fine. Hermione and Tonks do their best (and fail miserably) to be the only sane witches among a cast including a pair of marginally sane old men, a hero that is acting half his age, a surprisingly erudite Dementor, and a trio of 'victims' of the first ever case of accidental necromancy.

Little Guy by Clell65619
  • Recommended by: Unclouded TJ
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: What if Lily was a little more prepared to escape if Voldemort came calling. She knew that the Floo and Portkeys could be disabled, what if she had found a back door? Just a silly little story of a somewhat different Harry.
  • Comments: A silly little story that doesn't take itself too seriously, but still seems to be canon compliant. Especially worth it to see just how Snape reacts and what ends up happening to him in the end. Also it's not listed but it is a crossover, but I'll leave with what as a surprise.
