Hogwarts of Heaven
- Recommended by: People with brain problems (of the "testosterone overdose" kind).
- Synopsis: A series of episodes with a limited relation to each other; most revolve around killing things and liberal usage of the eff-word. It starts with Doby wearing Powered Armor which has a chainsaw mounted on its groin, and gets more extreme from there.
by Silver Suffering (now Sraosha). (Link defunct. If anyone has a copy saved, feel free to share...)
- Recommended by: People who like Marty Stues, randomness and Bella Swan/Anita Blake-action.
- Synopsis: Chestere Le Valiente plays a rocking electric guitar solo on a shiny wooden saxophone while wondering what life would be like if he was a female 16 year old Indonesian gymnast who was secretly working to bring down the government and force the world to wear pink tuxedos. He is very disappointed that purple giraffes are not permitted to drink from the toilets at Hogwarts. And then, a whole load of even more random things happen.
Love at first sight
- Note by the author himself. After discovering the madness that was My Immortal, I wanted to try my hand at a trollfic. It had a few reviews, but after a while I lost interest. The idea was that every 10 chapters, we'd have a moment of normality where Draco tries to stop the madness, but I decided I wanted to write more serious stories. I've deleted the files, sadly, and I'm not tempted to rewrite any of it. Although reading that synopsis makes me laugh at how messed up the story became. Do feel free to check out Persona Duality, though! (lol shameless plug)

Harry Potter and the Acts of Betrayal
- Recommended by Cherico
- Synopsis: Draco and Hermione get lost in Germany's Black Forest.
- Recommended by: Sharpfang, Looney Toons, feral
- Synopsis: The Semiclassic "everyone has been lying to Harry about everything" plot. Very AU. Bashing of pretty much everyone. Mind Control Sex. Language. Dumbledore decides the Old Families won't tolerate the Chosen One being with a mudblood. Sucks to be Ron and Ginny.
- Pairing(s): Harry/Hermione, Harry/Daphne Greengrass

The Demon Who Lived
- Recommended by: Metz77
- Synopsis: Hooooly crap. The be-all-end-all of epic-length Drarry creature-fics. In an AU seventh year — the fic was written post-Half-Blood Prince, but Dumbledore is still alive — Harry comes into his magical inheritance, but instead of getting a boost to his magic, transforms into a fae/elf hybrid. Meanwhile, Narcissa Malfoy is tortured, raped and murdered (offscreen) for not allowing Voldemort to take Draco as a bride. Dumbledore gives asylum to Draco and Lucius while also keeping Harry at Hogwarts while he deals with his new powers. What follows is a 76,000-word-long snafu of a fic filled with labyrinthine logic, slash, smut, strange pairings, Ron (and Ginny!) the Death Eater, and mpreg, without a single character remaining in-character for more than a paragraph at a time.
- Pairing(s): Harry/Draco, Hermione/Blaise

Jaded Eyes of a Prodigy
- Recommended by feral
- Crossover with Naruto

With the combined knowledge of his ninja forebears, Demon!Harry's mischief turns Hogwarts upside down as he curbstomps his enemies into submission.

Hogwarts Hidden Truth
- Recommended by Exo Saeptus
- Synopsis: Do you want your little ones to read books; and they want to read the Harry Potter Books; but you do not want them to turn into witches? Well-this is the story for you! This story has all the adventure of JKR's books; but will not lead your children astray. For concerned mommies everywhere! Blessings! Grace Ann. Features Ron the Death Eater and Luna as a communist vegetarian fornicating Hufflepuff, the Houses in switched roles, a twisted version of the Christian message and Hogwarts in America.
Harry Potter Becomes A Communist
- Recommended by hackstory
- Synopsis: Basic idea what if Harry during the summer dated a girl and when he returned to Hogwarts with her found out she was his twin sister careful contains incest.
- Comments: a story that is profound only in its inanities, I found this while browsing Harry/OC stories, and after reading the description (quoted verbatim above) . . . well, how could I not? It's every bit as abysmal as it sounds and then some, but it's oddly . . . compelling . . . for some reason.
Harry Potter Turns To The Lord
- Recommended by Pistols At Dawn
- Synopsis: Troubled by bad dreams, Harry goes on a soul-searching journey, where he meets a mysterious man, and is introduced to the Bible. Yes, the Bible. With his eyes now opened to the evils of Witchcraft, Harry returns to spread the news of Jesus Christ to the other sinners at Hogwarts, and apparently forgets about the whole defeating-Voldemort thing, because that never comes up again.
