Links to Fan Fics
« on: August 08, 2003, 04:24:57 PM »

I'm sure I'm not the

only one who enjoys reading fanfics, so I would like this to be a board to post links to any good Fanfics you come across. Please Include the link, a brief

summary (1 or 2 lines) and a rating. Nothing too mature please. Keep in mind the ages of some of our posters.

I've found a ton of great ones

but I've lost the links. I'll post them as soon as I find them...

*pokes thread to life*

So I found this great fanfic series the other day, thought I'd share. :) It's called Slytherin Rising, 3 parts completed, 1 more in progress, out of possibly 8. Naturally, it's also really long, but worth it.

The author is J. L. Matthews, http://www.fanfiction.net/profile.php?userid=27687. The main characters are a couple of years ahead of Harry, and it's slightly AU, but not too bad. It's brilliant ... I think even non-Slyths will enjoy it. :D

That is a great link!  Thanks for posting it.  I normally don't like too much fanfic, but this site looks good (runs back to read more on the site).

The only HP fic I've come across that I really, really liked was "All the Terrible Harry Potter Fanfics in One" https://www.fanfiction.net/read.php?storyid=1170911

The title is the summary, too. ^^  Unfortunately, the chapters are short, and due to crummy circumstances it's up in the air whether or not the author will ever update, again, but it's good for a laugh.

I read the first two Slytherin Rising, and at least part of the third and they were definitely very good, but I had a few problems with it so I didn't continue to follow the series. I didn't like the AU-ness in the second one because it really took Harry's accomplishments and handed them to some borderline Mary-Sueish girls. Some of the plot twists were very easily foreseen as well. I also thought that the characters were too old for their ages, if you know what I mean. Nothing is as complicated at 11 and 12 as this fic makes it out to be.

In any event, I recommend the first story as more of a standalone fic, because it suffers when it tries to blend with the real series, and takes some liberties that I found hard to swallow. (Ginny as a Slytherin??)

It's being rewritten, actually (the first one at least).

You know, I didn't think HArry's accomplishments were being handed off, because they still got through the traps and defeated Quirrel and figured it all out for themselves. If anything, Dumbledore's defeat of Quirrel's being handed over, because in the books he rescues Harry anyway.

lol ... that fic is more easily enjoyed if you take the AU-ness in stride.

The first one is being rewritten? Funny, that was my favorite. I definitely had a hard time accepting anything AU. I guess I enjoy the books as is so fully, I can't deal with any changes. Hence, dislike of the films as well.

It's just being edited so they sound more like 11 year olds, I think.

LOL ... I don't like the films because they stray from the books, but I enjoy this anyway. :P

It's probably because it's a Slytherin fic ... good ones are rare. :P If the main characters were in another house, I doubt I'd like it that much ...

I definitely thought they were way too mature for 11 year olds, so in that case editing would be good. I thought all the characters were really cool, it was just the whole Redeemer thing that started to wear after awhile. Borderline Mary Sueish you know?

I enjoyed the Ravenclaw fic Anna Moon, Ravenclaw Girl , but I think it had similar problems in that the characters didn't really act their age. It was pretty good as far I remember though.

I have so many good stories I should recommend, but I'm too lazy. Hee.

lol ... laziness is good. :p

I read the first chapter of that Ravenclaw fic, and it's pretty good, though the formatting is weird.

By the way ... outta curiousity, could you tell which chapters in Sleeping Death were rewritten?

I haven't read it since the rewrite so I couldn't tell you.

Here's some short one part stories if you don't have time to read epics like Slytherin Rising or Anna Moon.

Charlie Weasley Dragon Hunter
Dragon Hunter
Two really hilarious parodies of Steve Irwin: Crocodile Hunter. Or at least found them amusing.

A Magical Bedtime Story,the illustrated version - This is a story book written about Harry's defeat of the Dark Lord, and I think it's so cute. The illustrated version is perfect except it's missing the little epilogue bit so read the text only version too.

Chance Encounters - Cute story about 5 year old Harry and a trip he takes to the toy store.

Some Harry Potter Fanfics

*stares around at the cobwebs covering the thread*

Erm...anyway, I found some cool fanfics...they're listed below:

His Majesty's Secret Service by Gwendolyn Grace - This one's really long, but it's worth reading. A former Hogwarts student reprises his role, after a fashion, in order to befriend Draco Malfoy, in the hope of learning useful information about the Death Eaters. Fifth year story.

FictionAlley - this has links to all sorts of fanfics

Silver Luck by Aeryn Alexander - This one is awesome! Remus Lupin is gravely injured and not expected to survive. As he lies in the hospital wing of Hogwarts, lingering between life and death, Ginny Weasley stays by his side. Are these the final hours of the school's most beloved werewolf?

And of course, there's this one, my fave:

Harry Potter and the Golden Snitch Girl  by Morgan - This one's my story, posted right here on Hogsmeade!  ;D It's about how Morgan came to Hogwarts & her life here at Hogwarts. :D

Hi!
I have been on a total HPotter fanfiction kick, and have been reading like mad. (I blame Cuaron and his pretty pretty movie.)

I posted all my current fanfic recommends here on my blog:

http://purple.mytica.net/blog/index.php?p=376

There is a lot of Snape on there, cause I love him, and most are PG-13.

For something short and very sweet, check out

The First One to Get Eaten is a short, funny, MWPP era fic. Very quick read and worth a look.

Okay, I finally found some fics I like. They're both slightly off in timeline and a little off canon, but nothing serious, I enjoyed them tremendously anyway.

http://www.fanfiction.net/read.php?storyid=1810173 is called Seven times Seven and it's about the Weasleys and thier children. It's finished...finally.

http://www.fanfiction.net/read.php?storyid=1314632 is Through the Eyes of a Malfoy. Its, um a Lily Evans/ Lucius Malfoy fic...a little off timeline. I usually hate weird pairings like this, but i really loved how she did Malfoy. She gives him a 'better' side while still keeping him the heartless you-know-what we all know and love to hate. It's...almost finished.
