In 2014, I joined the site: http://www.fanfiction.net
Previously I had been reading and posting Harry Potter fan fiction on another site but it was a site with a lot of restrictions and rules and ultimately it diminished my enjoyment.
I read as many fan fictions as I do books and discovering Harry Potter fan fiction was definitely something that changed my view on the books and opened me up to a wealth of original stories of beloved characters.
I’ll often read a story on fan fiction that I wish was real canon.
For those of you that are interested in fanfiction, here is a list of ones I loved and read in 2014 and indeed have read many times since. I hope you enjoy.
The Heir of the Founders by The Cold Turkey
This story has 32 chapters and a word count of 134,535.
Harry receives a letter regarding his inheritance after Sirius’ death, changing the course of history for everyone in the wizarding world. (Powerful!Harry, Manipulative! Dumbledore. HHR)
Authors Note – Slightly different from my more conventional (read, more canon-esque stories in terms of in-character actions.) AU set after 5th year. Harry find that those whom have guided his life may not have had the best intentions. Likely H/Hr shipper, though there won’t be much (if any) Weasley bashing. Also as is the case, if you enjoy what you read please leave me a note saying hat you do, as they do help motivate me.
Earl of the North by Lord Silvere
This story has 50 chapters and a word count of 187,938.
Harry is framed for the mass murder of Muggles after he deals Voldemort a stunning blow. He is sent to Azkaban where he and his cell mate, Bellatrix Black, begin to discover Harry’s heritage and his potential power as they plot to escape.
In this World and the Next by robst
This story has 26 chapters and a word count of 164,711.
Not for Weasley fans, dark beginning and rating is for safety. A Re-do with payback on the menu H/Hr
A Kiss Can Save The World by robst
This story has 30 chapters and a word count of 141,452
COMPLETE – What would change if Harry asked Hermione to the Yule Ball? H/Hr
My Real Parents by redfrog
This story has 17 chapters and a word count of 73,613
AU to HBP, Hermione finds out that she is not the Granger’s daughter. We find out there is more to the Slytherins than we thought and not all Gryffindors are good. This is a SSHG fic with some other potential parings. Some Dumbledore and Weasley bashing.
Authors Note: I am trying a new angle with this story that I have never tried to write before. This is a Gryffindor/Slytherin pairing story that will show corruption in those we believe to be good and compassion in those we believe to be evil. The main pairing is going to be Snape/Hermione with Hermione being the ‘main’ character. There will be some Ron and Dumbledore bashing and the Slytherins will be completely out of character. Overall I think it will be a fun new story but maybe not for everyone’s tastes.
Fixing the Past by JenniseiBlack
This story has 29 Chapters and a word count of 91,462.
Voldemort is gone but so is Harry, Ron, Sirius, and everyone else Hermione ever cared for. The only person left with her after the war is Remus. Receiving a letter from her Grandfather Albus Dumbledore giving her a mission to go back in time and fix the past but when Hermione takes the mission she leaves the man she loves. How does she handle seeing him as his younger self.
One Hundred and Forty Nearly Twelve by broomstick flyer
This story has 29 chapters and a word cound of 73,767.
My answer to Merlins challenge when he was writing Time Again, so this is my Harry back in time story, it si H/Hr all the way as during an accident 142 year old Harry goes back in time to become eleven once again.
Simply Irresistible by bookworm1993
This story has 30 chapters and a word count of 77,494.
Draco gave a cocky grin. “I am going to give you a makeover.” “I’m sorry what?” “You heard me Granger, I’m going to give you a makeover that will make every man want you, and make Weasley die of regret. You will be simply irresistible.”
Hermione Black by MelodiDam
This story has 63 chapters and a word count of 81,188.
Hermione is not a Granger, nor a Mudblood. The brains of the Golden Trio is known in some circles as the Dark Princess. Some Order members are not what they appear to be.
King of Yesterday by Put My Earmuffs On The Cookie
This story has 35 chapters and a word count of 57,276
COMPLETE “Get off Hermione, or I will kill you.” Voldemort looked up at Harry, his human features rapidly unfurling revealing the old Tom Riddle. “Kill me then.” A TRHR story.
Authors Note: I know a lot of people have written Tom Riddle/Hermione stories, especially ones concerning time travel of some sort. I will admit that the basic plotline here is not that creative…but I will attempt to make this more interesting than some of those that I have read. Maybe a few more evil twist or indepth personality assessments of Tom.
Delenda Est by Lord Silvere
This story has 46 chapters and a word cound of 392,449.
Harry is a prisoner, and Bellatrix has fallen from grace. The accidental activation of Bella’s treasured heirloom results in another chance for Harry. It also gives him the opportunity to make the acquaintance of the young and enigmatic Bellatrix Black as they change the course of history.
Author’s Note: We decided to stick together after Earl so that we could try our hand at another Harry/Bellatrix story. This is the product of some really long chats on the instant messenger. We’re out to break some cliches and provide you with a first rate H/B story; hopefully that happens. There’s only a slight catch-this doesn’t rant as top priority for either of us, so updates won’t be as quick or regular as any of us would prefer.
As for the setting of the story, we’re operating under the idea that books six and seven didn’t quite turn out as they did in the cannon. Most notably, they never figured out the horcruxes. Harry and the gang graduated and wandered off into the world to help the Order to fight Voldemort. We admit that the beginning may have some shades of Earl, but it will quickly wander into other paths.
Bottle-Specs by takethefirewhiskyandrun
This story have 50 chapters and a word count of 135,014.
“What’s she done to herself?” Sirius whispered quite loudly. There was a slight scuffle and some mumbles as I squinted, trying to make out their shapes and turn towards them. “Um, are these yours?” Potter said uncertainly, after a few moments. “IF you’re talking about the embarrassingly thick, probably broken glasses on the floor, then yes. And…I can’t see without them,” I babbled.
Harry Potter and the Warrior’s Path by librarywitch
This story has 50 chapters and a word count of 203,787.
This is a what if story. Cannon will be followed when it fits my story. Harry is powerful but not a superhero, Harry and Hermione the main pairing, rating my change down the road.
Chronicles of Camelot by DZ2
This story has 38 chapters and a word count of 223,172.
My answer to Proud Mudblood’s challenge: it started with a kiss: a new Harry emerges and a seemingly impossible destiny is set in motion; with Hermione at his side, however, Harry feels he can do anything: can he? Grey-Superpowerful-Harmony (Two ‘Book’ Saga)
