  1. I thought of a few others:

    Keep Calm and Carry On by firewhiskey_ginger – This was originally on HPFF and I think it won an award for the OC. She’s been revising it and posting it on AO3. It’s an Oliver Wood/OC and it is great–OC is well-rounded and flawed and the premise is really interesting.

    Periphery by firewhiskey_ginger – Not sure if this was ever on HPFF. Sirius/OC. Let me just say: I very rarely read Marauders era fics. I started this one because I loved Keep Calm and Carry On and I immediately fell in love with it. Another great OC and the author does an amazing job at really fleshing out characters like Marlene McKinnon.

    Wilder Mind by politelycynical – Hermione Granger/George Weasley. College AU. Really well written.

  2. There’s a next generation fic called “completely normal”. It’s about Harry’s son James and Oliver Woods’s daughter Charlotte. It’s a spectacular story and one of my favorite fanfics, I highly recommend it.

  3. Resonance, Revolution and Resolution by greengecko! These novels explore the what if scenario of Snape and Harry exploring their common ground, leading to Harry’s adoption as he is coming of age. Greengecko relies on canon and imagination to depict a mentorship based on fierce loyalty and understanding. Especially well-written and the author’s world-building is exceptional.

  4. There was this doc called Letters to L.C. It’s a Sirius Black x OC and the OC is sort of like Luna but more wired and clumsy. It was really cute and considering I don’t really read Sirius x OC (I usually read wolfstar) it was really good. And there was another one, I don’t remember what it was called but it was Regulus Black x OC and the OC was this Hufflepuff the whole school hated. Like she got bullied by Mulciber and such and Regulus seemed really interested in her.

  5. Hello,
    I’m afraid I only have 3 HP fanfictions that I found of good enough quality to share (don’t worry, they are written quite professionally by the wonderful author Kristen, on http://www.quotev.com)!

    So, number one on my recommendation list, is The Mudblood, and I assure you that every single one of the 3278 pages is worth reading! In this fanfic, there is an OC, Lainey Fitzroy who has multiple love interests, but encounters many, MANY setbacks, preventing her from easily choosing one. You will follow her and her interesting group of friends from her first year at Hogwarts all the way to adulthood!
    Trust me, it’s the best damn fanfic I’ve EVER read!!

    Second, comes The Squib [Draco Malfoy]:
    Also written by Kristen, this book follows the life of a sixteen-year-old squib, Athena Merus (also an OC), as she attends Hogwarts for the first time, entering as a sixth year. Again, this book portrays the reality and difficulty of being with someone who is completely the opposite of your character! I would honestly recommend this book to ANYONE who loves the world of Harry Potter!

    And last but not least, Arabella Lestrange: The Rise of Marvolo.
    My goodness, THIS BOOK. THIS BOOK HITS YOU HARD. Golly gosh, this book puts you through such good pain, you know when you just get everything, and everything’s written so well, you imagine yourself AS the character, not just watching someone else? Yeah, well I’m telling you now, it’s an emotional rollercoaster!!!!!!!!!

    Anyway, Kristen is really able to capture the reality of situations so well, like the characters ACTUALLY have flaws! And not EVERYTHING works out for them!!!! Like she is so good at finding realistic situations of being stuck between a rock and a hard place. I promise you, you will enjoy these books! They are very easy reads (still written with good vocab n’ all) and they are just SO CAPTIVATING. You will not be able to stop reading!!!!!!!

    I really hope you enjoy them as much as I did!!! :))))))))))))))

  6. Chessmaster is probably one of the good ongoing series around. The trio ends up in Slytherin and there is a lot of politics. Contrary to what you would expect though most of it isn’t done by PowerfulSmartTrio but all the big moves are being made by the big players. The trio does what they can at their level but I didn’t find it unbelievable anywhere yet.

  7. the best harry potter fanfic i’ve ever read is an AU by hollimichele on AO3 called “the dog father” wherein the dursley’s turn baby harry over to the police and he is adopted into a loving, muggle family. it’s so SWEET and incredibly well written. plus (spoiler) harry refers to sirius as his DOG-father. enough said. they post frequent updates on tumblr as well.

    another really incredible fic is “face death in the hope” by lullabyknell (also on AO3). it’s AU/time-travel (possibly dimension travel??) that takes place right after voldemort kills harry in the forbidden forest and harry wakes up during the first war, in the horcrux cave and manages to save regulus black before he drowns. lots of sirius + regulus angst. lots of really amazing and believable jily. hands down the BEST depiction of marlene mckinnon (or the mckinnons as a whole) i’ve ever read. excruciatingly slowburn harry/regulus. it’s just fantastic.

    the leave no stone unturned series by thedivinecomedian (again, AO3) is the best collection of marauder’s era work i’ve ever read. and i’m a BIG fan of marauder’s era fanfiction. every single stand alone in this series is absolutely amazing and SO incredibly well-written but here are some honorable mentions:

    “blackpool” is a really dark, really in-depth dive into the on-goings of number 12 grimmauld place from the perspective of regulus black. basically, what exact sort of abuse transpired in that household and how it shaped both sirius and regulus and their subsequent paths. it’s incredibly sad but so incredibly good.

    “the age of lies” has the best and the most believable peter pettigrew. it’s an AU in which kreacher saves regulus from the inferi and peter is exposed as a traitor before things go down. plus dad!james.

    “they’re hiding me inside” is the BEST rehashing of that summer where sirius decides enough is enough and seeks refuge at the potter’s. it’s told from remus’ pov and there are really sweet wolfstar moments. also regulus is SUCH a slytherin.

    “tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow” is such an interesting concept. it takes place during deathly hallows right before the order goes to retrieve harry from the dursleys for the last time. basically, remus and hermione have a conversation about war and trauma and coping and sexual orientation and quote shakespeare because why on earth wouldn’t they. and hermione is just the cleverest.

    but, really, you should read all of thedivinecomdian’s work bc it’s all amazing.

  8. Will any stories that were on the HPFF archive, but were blocked from being viewed by the former admin will be restored when you revive the site?
    Many thanks
    Tgfoy

    1. We are working on a system that allows for a much higher degree of freedom for all writers while still maintaining a portion of the site to the currently established culture. – Ronnie

  9. There a couple that were only on harrypotterfanfiction.com.
    The octane generation and the quiet outcast. Can’t remember the authors but both are next generation. Octane was about Albus and scropius as best friends and was an Albus s.p/oc and rose/scorpius. Outcast was about Hugo Weasley and was friken funny, can’t wait for the hpff stories to be back up.
    In this darkness by quill2parchment was on hpff.com but is also on another site currently.
    The rest of my recommendations can be found on fanfiction.net
    To be a Slytherin by Morgana Deryn
    BEST FANFIC EVER. Draco/oc. Harry has a sister.
    The revolt series by van’s scribbles
    Next gen, very political so maybe not for everyone but it’s in my top 3.
    Love and Glory by ginnyweaslyrocks
    Seeing red by bumbledbee
    The stygian trilogy by slide
    A second chance by midnight Mockingjay
    Deceptive nature’s by frostykitty
    As you will see I’m a big next generation fan. Most are rose/Scorpius even if it’s only mentioned like in in this darkness.

  10. Delicate by Padfoot4ever
    Complicated but ShadowRose997
    Make You Feel My Love (there’s like 3 stories and this is just one of the titles)
    As Stupid as Me

  11. I recommend the series about the prince of souls is starts as harry potter and the four heirs it has been a rollercoaster read with 6 fics in the series amazing read by _harry_potter_

  12. Hi!! I’ve onlg read a couple fanfics on HPFF, and one of them was absolutely amazing but I don’t remember the author and I only vaguely remember the title; something along the lines of “it’s always been you” or “always you”. It’s a dramione fanfic and I really think you should add it to your reading list, it’s phenomenal!

  13. Another one was called the Road Home, it was pretty good. Also, the one that I think won most addicting story a few years ago and was about rose and scorpius, it was in progress but super good.

  14. Now, this one ain’t a recommendation but I just want to say that I saw your post on the plans for HPFF and I wanna say a really big THANK YOU because HPFF is my life and I had a mini heart attack when I couldn’t find the website like around two weeks ago. I thought ‘hey maybe they’re just doing a site maintenance or something’ but I remembered it again today and I stumbled upon your post, and Gods am I relieved.
    So yeaaaah. Just wanna express my thanks to you guys and (huehue) you just gained a new subscriber! Love lots!

    1. Awh 🙂 Thanks so much! We’re so happy to be working on getting the site back up! Its a bit more difficult than we expected but we’re working hard to make it happen! Cheers – Ronnie

  15. Awh such a good idea! Well ‘red and gold’ by gryffindor_gal I love, as well as ‘Delicate’ and ‘Still Delicate’ by padfoot4ever!

  16. Oh wow! You guys are absolutely amazing! This is such an unexpected twist!

    If you could find The Immeasurable Marauder, Limitless and Incomparable, I would be eternally grateful! <3

  17. Are you taking suggestions for list topics as well? I am a big fan of any romance with Fred or George and I’ve been having a hard time finding good ones lately so I’d be super pumped to see a recommendations list for that (though it might be too narrow).

    Two recommendations that immediately come to mind are Love and the Empty Brook Closet by Liz Ambrose (fanfiction.net) and A Lid for Every Pot, George Weasley by BooksVCigarettes (fan fiction.net and AO3). They are both George romances and they’re adorable and I love them. Really good OCs as well.

    Looking forward to seeing HPFF online again! I’ve only started branching out from fanfiction.net and I found out about HPFF after April 28 and everything I’ve heard about it sounds awesome.

    1. Our rec list will almost certainly have a few pairings like that – and we work really hard to make sure every fic we recommend is literally one of the best of its kind 🙂 – thanks for the recommendations and for the support! – Ronnie

      1. Yay!

        I just realized autocorrect betrayed me again—that should be Love and the Empty Broom Closet by Lux Ambrose.

  18. I recommend In This Darkness but unfortunately i dont remember the author… It is a next generation Fic with Lily Luna as one of the main characters. It really is an incredible fanfiction!!!
    And thank you so much for fighting for our fanfictions!!!!

  19. I was sad to see that the site was not operational but I’m very glad you intend to put it back up. Ever since I became a Harry Potter fan, harrypotterfanfiction has been a source of pleasure and inspiration. If it had gone for good it would have been a severe blow.

    1. I know right? Its been around for 17+ years! We really didn’t want to see it go which is why we got involved in the first place. Thanks so much for your support and for sharing your thoughts 🙂 – Ronnie

  20. I was glad to see that you are bringing HPFF back. After almost 9 years in retirement I came back to find it gone. I will most definitely be back once its up again writing, reading, reviewing and maybe beta reading if my time frees up a bit.

  21. I was given the heads up about the closure of HPFF by Professor Muggle who, like me, was banned from the site a few years ago. If the HPFF archives still contain my stories, I have no objections to you restoring them, although as they’re all on fanfiction.net, you may not think this will be necessary. Your site, your decision.
    Will this be an open and active site (will you be taking new submissions) or will it simply be an archive of the lost stories? If the former, I’d really like to resubmit. If you’re worried about the reason for my ban, my version of events is an Author’s note at the end of the last chapter of Tales of The Battle at fanfiction.net. Of course, that’s only my version…
    Good luck with this.
    Northumbrian
    PS An anonymous poster on 16th June mentioned myGinevra in a long list of writers. I like his work, but I’m pretty sure he was banned from HPFF, too.

  22. Hi! I read you’re trying to keep harrypotterfanfiction alive – thank you thank you thank you! I wish there was a way I could help you somehow because honestly that website got me through so much throughout high school and I’m devastated to think it’ll be lost forever.
    Thanks guys! If you ever need some kind of literary support I’d be happy to help (even if only in a small way)
    Kind Regards,
    Carly 🙂 or x-shadow-x-kisses-x as I go by in the fanfic world hahahaha

  23. Hi!
    I recommend Dramione funfic: ‘Above the clouds’ and ‘The reason is you’.
    And also Drarry: ‘Red Hills’

  24. Please keep stories from the following authors:
    Groundswell, AC Rules, harrylilyjames,Mistress,overtherainbomb,Seeker68, Rae of sunshine,greengecko, Gryffindor Girl 153, Hyenni, Jelly Man, Realmer06, Pretty Purple Pelican, Snitch Snatcher, Alicia and Anne, and Thedirigibleplum, Sundevil05, Lucylovegood, Meg, Mrs. Granger, Notadryeye, myGinevra, Wacky Tarz, and Emerald Lights.

    If I think of more, I will let you know.

    Thanks for all you do to keep our favorites on file.

    1. Hi! Just letting you know that Alicia and Anne as well as dirigibleplums are both now active at Harry Potter Fanfic Talk forums, and have posted their stories on the accompanying HPFT archives, though Alicia is now posting under BuckyStilinski. I have no idea if they plan to return to HPFF or not, or even leave their stories up.

      Many of the active HPFF members moved across to HPFT once it was formed, HPFT was created in the aftermath of the HPFF forums closing by several of the old members personally, Rose (toomanycurls), and Branwen (abhorsen.) as well as Holly and many more. Feel free to check it out to find many of the HPFF authors you knew plus more!

  25. Someone has suggested this already, but anything my Mistress is very good (mostly next gen stuff from memory). Breaking the quidditch code, keep away, hide and seek, 30 days of you and me, hormones, the keepers daughter, under the radar etc.

  26. I wrote some fan fictions on the website but I took them off and started to rewrite them but I do believe I started putting one of my stories on there again. My name on the site was kimmy potter and the stories were The Parent Trap, What A Girl Wants, Love Lost Love Found. I believe it was What A Girl Wants that I had published again.

  27. Breaking the Quidditch Code is one of my all-time favorite fics. And there was a sequel but I can’t remember the name. I believe these were by Mistress.

  28. I am from Brazil, and I found this site after searching for more platforms to read Fanfics, one of my biggest passions. I was happy with your work, and I hope soon to see the site running 100%.

    Snily:

    The Long Road Home by Penelope Muir (Fanfiction. net)
    If Someone cared Enough by Shain-of-Ireland (Fanfiction. net)
    Chalk Outline, by Nygma42, Oswald_Nygmobblepot (archiveofourown. org)

    Dramione:

    Crimson with a Silver Lining by Lady Canilan (Fanfiction. net)
    Hold on, by Karistiel (Spiritfanfiction. com) – in Portuguese
    Cidade das Pedras – Draco & Hermione by AppleFran (fanfiction.com.br) in Portuguese

    Cidade das Pedras is the best story I ever about the universe of Harry Potter with Draco and Hermione as protagonists. It’s the best Dramione story in Brazil.

  29. So many!
    Lady Malfoy;
    A three part story where Snape adopts Harry – Resonance was the first one;
    Two to Tango;
    The Present;
    The Art of Surviving;
    Delicate;
    Still Delicate;
    How Not to Be a Woodley;
    Give Up This Fight;
    Arabesque…

    I hope you can restore them all!

  30. hi. there was a fic called the brave at heart on hpff, it was about marauders. it was going so good. i couldnt read till the end cause the website shut down but hey cant wait to read the rest of it! im so excited:)

  31. Everything that was on HPFF is awesome!! All the stories took me away from my problems for a period. It relaxed me and made me forget about my issues. IT would be ashamed to lose any of them.

  32. Hi Gwen and Ronnie, Im desperately looking for a fanfiction that I believe used to be on hpff (was in the favourite stories section or was a dobby awards winner, but i’ve trolled the lists and can’t find it: Sirius/OC – in 7th Year, The OC was a Chinese girl who was trained in deadly martial arts (secret) who ended up in a Hogwarts triwizard tournament kind of thing and I’m fairly sure there was a dragon. This used to be my favourite story. Thank you 🙂

  33. Well, I’ve read loads of great fanfiction, so here are some of my personal favourites.

    1. Clash, by shezwriter – Dark, with a really great plot, and brilliant character development. Probably the best HP fanfiction I’ve ever read. WIP.

    2. The Albus Potter Series, by NoahPhantom – Next Gen fic with a really great story. Seriously, the writers have reimagined the magical world. Complete.

    3. Eclipse of the Sky, by firefawn – Hogwarts era, AU starting from HBP. Has all the canon characters and one really brilliant OC. WIP.

    4. The Dark Lessons and the Colossus Series, by Sammy 23.4 – The Colossus Series is abandoned, but three of it’s books are complete. The Dark Lessons is Cursed Child compliant, but still brilliant.

    5. The Life and Times by Jewels5 and the Shoebox Project – Greatest Marauder era pics ever. LAT is incomplete though, and has not been updated in 5 years.

    6. The Stygian trilogy, by Slide – Follows Scorpius, Rose, Albus and a couple of other OCs. Brilliant Story. Next Gen. Complete.

    7. Now for the Romance/Drama/Humor genre :
    – Complicated by ShadowRose
    – Delicate and it’s sequel by padfoot4ever
    – Breathless and Welcome to the Chase by dream_BIG.
    – You Can Marry Me by deceptive_serenade
    – 19 years by Marauder5
    – Breaking the Quidditch Code, it’s sequel and The Keeper’s daughter by Mistress.
    – Fluorescent Adolescent by greenbirds.
    – Dormitory 2.6A by dirigibleplums.

    8. It’s all his fault!, by pottermommy1118 – Next Gen time turner fic. James, Teddy, Lily and Albus find a time turner and end up in Grimmauld Place during the summer of Order of Phoenix. Perhaps the most cheerful fic I’ve ever read. Sincerely recommend this one.

    Most of these were on HPFF, so I really hope it gets back up.

  34. I have read just a few Harry Potter Fanfics and really enjoyed Delicate by Padfoot4ever. I was several chapters into its sequel Still Delicate and didn’t get to finish it, so I would love to see these added! Thanks!

  35. -how to tame a marauder by melian
    The art of breathing and the art of surviving? – not sure who this was by
    – Resonance by green gecko.

    Some of my faves and it would be a shame to lose them.

  36. “haunted: the life and times of regulus black” by jenna822. it’s an old story but a great one. really long and all about regulus. it was on hpff and i think fanfiction dot net as well. she also wrote “wonderwall” which is a james/regulus fic.

  37. Everything by padfoot4ever !!!
    – along came Sirius + the sequel
    Oooh and also everything by Melian – how to tame a marauder is the best !
    So sad I can’t read it right now, I could slap myself for not printing it !!!

      1. How to tame a Marauder (and all my other works) are up on archive.hpfanfictalk.com and archiveofourown.org. At this point it’s likely I will be deleting it from this site if it comes back up, as it won’t be the same site I originally agreed to post on. I’m on Twitter and HPFT forums if you want to chat about it. Cheers Mel

        1. Of course, access to your account will be 100% restored so you’re free to do with them as you wish – our goal was to save the site and to save the stories, we fully respect author’s rights to maintain control over their stories after we get the site back up. Though, I think you might like this new site if you give it a chance 🙂 We’re putting a lot of effort into making it easier to use and accessible to everyone (including instant posting).

          Cheers,
          -Ronnie

  38. The fic I’ve been reading and love a lot is pretty unknown. I think it is, anyway. It’s a Harry and twin story, but I think it’s really well thought out and blends beautifully with the story. I think he author is planning a series and is still working on book one.

    It’s called The Potter Twins and the Philosopher’s Stone on fanfiction.net

    The writers penname is InkedRose

  39. Could you add “The Unexpected: A Lily and James Story!” by Emms16? It is literally my favorite fanfiction ever and I have been trying to find it for months! If you could add it that would be amazing.

  40. Absolutely loved Kill your darlings about Andromeda and Ted, hopefully it will be available to read soon again!

  41. An author who called herself Jaydah, made some awesome stories i would love to read again. Been a few years since so can’t remember the names of the stories unfortunately.

  42. “Harry Potter: United as One” https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12378391/1/Harry-Potter-United-As-One

    A (WiP) but a fun ride starting off Halloween 1981 doesn’t spend much time in the lower years until TriWizard tournament, many OCs and changed characters with a mainly original way to destroy Horcruxes. LilyAlive! GoodDraco! GoodWeasleys! EvilDumbledore! SuperVoldemort! PowerfulHarry&Co.! SlytherinHarry! Haphne! Dramione! FleurxOC! NotShyNeville!

  43. polychromatic on hpff is amazing (i feel like i grew up with it when harry potter books stopped coming in my teens) for when you get it up and running again

      1. no worries! forgot to mention it’s a marauders fanfic 🙂 i’ve read it multiple times tbh and was going back for a re-read when i saw the site was down for the first time 🙁 hope you get it up and running soon! 🙂

  44. One of the best Albus/OC fics was: etc. etc. (and life goes on) by justonemorefic on HPFF, I think? Would love to reread it.

  45. Thank you so much guys for doing this! I was deeply sad when HPFF went down. There is so much there I don’t know where to begin! Here is a list of my favourites
    Resonance
    Revolution
    Resolution
    The Solidius Charm
    The Kings Of Magic
    The Source of Magic
    The New Lords

    1. Awh, thank you so much! If you think of more, keep sending them our way! We’re working really hard to get the website back up with some new finishing touches 🙂 – Ronnie

  46. One of my faves is definitely Delicate by padfoot4ever. I have read that fic too many times to count!! Others that I remember vaguely (and really want to read again) are Living Life by singing and How To Tame a Marauder (can’t remember the author). I was really into my marauder and next gen fics back in the day! Literally lived for Scorpius/Rose, Sirius/OC and James/Lily.

    1. How to Tame a Marauder is by ‘melian’, they’re stories are now posted on the Harry Potter Fanfic Talk archives, you can find them at archive (dot) hpfanfictalk (dot) com.

      Many of the active HPFF members moved across to HPFT once it was formed, HPFT was created in the aftermath of the HPFF forums closing by several of the old members personally, Rose (toomanycurls), and Branwen (abhorsen.) as well as Holly and many more.

  47. I image you guys have already had kmbell92 on wattpad recomended to you seeings as she is amazing and super popular but just in case I wanted to recommend her writing especially her “tightly knit” series.

  48. I would like to recommend “lemons into lemonade” by prongsette on Wattpad, everything they write is great but this story of theirs is my favourite.

  49. I wish I would’ve had all the links saved for the titles because I had a hefty list. My favorites though were Oliver Wood/OC written. When I think of then I’ll post

  50. Hello,

    I can’t recommend enough, “Blood Traitor” by Zalia on fanfiction.net: https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11819431/1/Blood-Traitor

    While it is a longer fan fiction, it is totally worth the read. The initial premise that Draco Malfoy is a Veela who loves and who’s mate is Hermione Granger. While this plot may not be everyones cup of tea, I think overall it is one of the best fan fictions I have ever read. Without giving to much of the plot away, it is a “fix-it” like fan fan fiction (While I agree that Harry Potter is perfect, this fan fiction is an alternative look after the War, and I think it makes for a less tragic ending overall). I admit that I like characters that are “good”, and where everything turns out alright. So if you are looking for an uplifting, funny, and engaging story, this is the one for you.

    Zalia has an amazing talent for humor. I have not laughed so consistently throughout the entirety of a fan fiction, and the humor is poignant at every rereading.

  51. I read this really great Mauraders fic, I can’t remember the exact name of but I think it was something along the lines of The Kings and Queens of Hogwarts?? it was based on the marauders (obvs haha) and Lily, Marlene McKinnon, Dorcas Meadowes and Mary McDonald. It was based in the 6th year and goes on about issues with slytherins, there’s a ball/party near Christmas and then towards the end there a bit about them get recruited into the Order. It was soooooo good but I can’t find it anywhere. the writer had started a sequel for it as well I believe

      1. No unfortunately not, I’ve been trying to find on other sites and I’ve seen this one pop up on a couple of them. The one I’m on about is just based on the Harry Potter

        1. I also remember that Sirius had already left the Black house and was living with James, and also Dorcas lives with them because her parents I’d passed away and they see her as a little sister and get like crazy protective over her but then she starts seeing Remus but they keep it a secret

          1. Don’t worry, I haven’t given up yet. It may take us a few days, but Gwen is a blood hound on these kind of things 🙂 Keep a look out on your email – Ronnie

  52. From HPFF:

    Living Life by singing
    How to tame a Marauder by Melian
    Lady Malfoy by cherrypie3601
    Being Summer by PygmyPuffLover

    1. Hi! melian is actually currently around at Harry Potter Fanfic Talk – it’s a forums site and has an archive where quite a few prominent and not-so-prominent previously HPFF members have posted their previous work, and continue to post their new stories.

      Many of the active HPFF members moved across to HPFT once it was formed, HPFT was created in the aftermath of the HPFF forums closing by several of the old members personally, Rose (toomanycurls), and Branwen (abhorsen.) as well as Holly and many more. Feel free to check it out to find many of the HPFF authors you knew plus more!

      -previously Caitlin under rosehedwig243 on hpff, now BlackPixie on HPFT-

  53. I have a Harry Potter fanfiction called The Foundation for the Future by Teddylonglong, it is a great read, I am sure some people will like to read this one, it is on fanfiction.net, and it is a timetravel fanfic.
    The summary is as follows
    Before their first Hogwarts year, Harry and Hermione undergo training with the founders of Hogwarts. How will they fit into their future’s class? Completely AU, partly OOC, probably Dumbledore/Weasley bashing. Rating just to be sure. HP/HG

      1. Yeah it’s a really good story even though it wasn’t finished! How much longer till the site goes live again?

        1. My personal goal is within the next two weeks, we’re finishing the final details throughout next week – sorry for the long wait time, its taking longer than we anticipated to get everything back online. – Ronnie

  54. Azoth by zeitgeistic is my all time favorite, but also incredily well written and lovely is Running on Air by eleventy7, The Man Who Lived by SebastianL, The pure and Simple Truth by lettered, Humbug(A Christmas Tale) by snegurochka_lee, and Turn by Sara’s Girl. They’re all my perfect children and I’d be honored if you have them a look!

  56. Hi please please please save Flourescent Adolescent by greenbirds! One of the best Next Gen HP fan fics out there – not completed but on its way!!! And How Not To Be a Woodley by NHStadler <3

  57. Faith, Trust, and Pixie Dust, it’s a Dramione set 8th year I think. I believe the author has chocolate in the name. It was on hpff.net, and I miss it terribly.

  58. I’m a HUGE Snape/Lily shipper. This is the best story I’ve ever read in redoing history and getting them back together. But instead of the normal Snape dying and going back in time to relive his life this story has Lily going into the future to the point of the seventh book! It’s called Ananke and is very GOOD!

  59. I was looking for this James and Lily fanfic and I can’t find it now that the site is down. I don’t remember the name of it. But, James and Lily had dated and broken up because of a big misunderstanding, so, now they hate each other. Every time James makes Lily cry, Sirius is there and makes her feel better. This is one of my favorite Sirius/Lily friendship dynamic is think. Other random things I remember from it is that James’ mom’s name is Monique Monroe and they call her MJ Potter. She is French, was a quidditch star but quit and becomes an Auror. She is really skilled and trains Lily without James knowing. Please help me find this. Although it does really paint James in that great of a light, you kind of fall in love with Sirius. It definitely has a good plot and the story is so great I keep thinking about it.

    https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8186071/1/Harry-Crow :What will happen when a goblin-raised Harry arrives at Hogwarts. A Harry who has received training, already knows the prophecy and has no scar. With the backing of the goblin nation and Hogwarts herself. Complete.

  61. https://archiveofourown.org/works/899336/chapters/1738181 :Turned into a werewolf at fifteen, Harry, afraid of what he now is and the lack of control he has, runs from the wizarding world, right into the territory of unmated alpha werewolf Fenrir Greyback, who is overly eager to find the submissive wolf in the heart of his territory. Fenrir/Harry. Mpreg.

    https://archiveofourown.org/works/8659690/chapters/19854463 :After Harry rids the Wizarding World of Voldemort, his dreams of having a happy life of his own are dashed when the Ministry decides he’s too dangerous to remain free. Harry escapes to start a new life, under a new identity unknown to everyone in the UK. He settles into his new life, begins a family and all seems well… but is it?

  62. https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11324004/1/Seeking :Fem!HP/Theodore Nott. Post OOTP AU. Rosemary and Theo make a life together after the war is over. It’s nice and sweet, but of course, there’s always bumps along the way. First story after a LOOONG Hiatus. Hope you like. D/s, Het. Unedited. COMPLETE!

    https://archiveofourown.org/works/6285364/chapters/14402683 : GoT crossover: The blood of the dragon has been failing over the decades. The various wars, rebellions and fights have whittled the family down to just five remaining members. An ancient prophecy from old Valyria that was unearthed by the oldest Targaryen Prince leads to forbidden love and perhaps to true love also. Secrets and subterfuge, war and madness plague the Targaryen family, but the dragons do not so easily die and with strength, perseverance and a few choice alliances, the blood of the dragon will strengthen again and it will lead to the rekindling of the royal family and to the fated rebirth of the long lost dragons.

    1. Awesome! Thanks for letting us know they’re all complete – that’s definitely one of our main requirements for reccing a Fic 🙂 – its especially important for new readers reading fanfiction for the first time! If you think of any others, please send it our way 🙂 -Gwen & Ronnie

    1. Who doesn’t love a good fluff? During our reading we look for stories that are able to elicit emotion while still telling an amazing story that keeps readers engaged and excited to read more. Can’t wait to read these! – Ronnie

          1. This website is read-only. The intention of FanfictionRecommendations.com is to help newer fanfiction readers quickly find great fanfics they’ll love. We’ve found that people are way more likely to stick around in the community if their first few reading experiences were good, but if they end up reading a story thats well liked but has poor structure (endings that don’t make sense, bad climax, etc.), they give up on fanfiction forever. So we made this site to show them some of the best in fanfics in each fandom.

            However, HarryPotterFanfiction.com will definitely offer accounts and publishing just like it used to. We’ll also be making major product updates to make it easier to write and read fanfiction (making things easier is kind of our thing). – R & G

  65. Firefawn has my favorite HP fanfic of all time. It is called “Eclipse of the Sky” and was on harrypotterfanfiction.com before it closed and I think was the most reviewed story there. I printed it off before it shut down and it had about 4000+ reviews. Its got 50 chapters so far and once it takes off action wise (around chpater 13) it has action like no other fanfic I’ve ever read. It also has great romance and tension in it and is beyond dark. It is being finished on fanfiction.net now under the same name and penname but doesn’t have the same following it did back in the day. I just discovered your rec site so wanted to submit it.

      1. Glad it could help! Sherlock ones are great, but man this one was a classic Harry Potter. I was thrilled when the author came back to finish the story.
