One of the reasons we fell in love with literature, from a young age, was the magic and seemingly endless opportunity to chase it with words. There are so many outlets to indulge in and build that magic when it comes to writing.
You can create songs, letters, stories, alternate universes, films, and comics – the list goes on and on.
You can watch films, listen to music, read stories and letters, spend hours looking comics, and our personal favorite – you can get lost in fanfiction.
In fact, we found so much of that magic when we found fanfiction, and it’s been an unbreakable bond since then. In fact, we find ourselves reading fanfiction more than we read almost anything else.
There are stories you can find yourself in, stories you can get lost in, stories you can find hope in, there are even stories that can help mend a broken heart.
While it’s hard to find favorites within any realm of fanfiction, we did try to narrow it down for today’s blog post. For every fanfiction reader, there will be different ‘go to’ stories in every subgenre, so we know it’s going to be impossible to cover all of them.
Here are some of the stories we chose for this go around.
When we first found this fic, we were in the mood to read a Ron centered story, and we’re so glad we stumbled upon it.
It’s not rare to find magic in Harry Potter fanfiction stories, in fact…it’s rare not to. This story, of course, contains magic. In some Harry Potter fanfic you’ll even find an air of mystery, but it’s hard to find fanfiction as unique as this one.
With Ron as a betrayer of Harry Potter (and the life we’ve seen him grow to love), readers are forced to question everything we know and love about the character.
What could have made Ron turn on Harry? Was there something bubbling under the surface all along? Why is Ron so far from who we’ve known him to be?
Those questions and more will be answered as you read Invisible Circus and you’ll certainly be emotional – but you’ll love the ride.
If you’re a Draco/Hermione fan, this probably won’t be a new fic for you, but it’ll definitely be one you’ll gladly reread – time and time again.
In this fic, Hermione is dealing with PTSD in a way she didn’t expect, and that’s probably because she wasn’t expecting it at all.
There’s a lot of baking in this fic, a lot of healing, and a lot of love in some unexpected places – the theme is evident throughout. The things we need most may not be the most obvious, sometimes…they’re the small things that begin healing us before we even realize it’s happening.
This fic is a short and easy read, and it’s one that’ll keep you hooked from the first sentence. A tale of Ron and Harry in the Slytherin house, this fanfic will have you in stitches.
Harry and Ron don’t exactly belong in Slytherin…but the Sorting Hat makes no mistakes, right?
That may be true, but it seems as if the hat can be persuaded to…side with a student on which house they believe they belong to if said student is stubborn enough.
While this is just a snippet into what could be a much larger universe, it’s a good one. So if you want a little bit of a totally alternate universe type story with ups, downs, and a sprinkle of drama within, this one is for you.
We are suckers for this fanfiction, and there are probably a couple of good reasons for that. One, it’s single dad Draco and we have an unusually soft spot in our hearts for that storyline. Honestly, we didn’t know we needed it until we read this, then…it was a brilliant addition into our fanfiction ‘must-haves’.
Draco needs help when it comes to the mother of his child, and who better to help him than a close friend, right? Well…that’s not exactly what happens for Draco in this fic, at least…not at first.
Hermione is who Draco reaches out to for help, and it’s quite possibly the best decision he ever could have made. Not just for his sake when dealing with legal dilemmas, but for the sake of his own heart, too.
We have a feeling you’ll fall in love with this story, just as we did.
The synopsis for this one is originally what piqued our interest, that and we’re suckers for a good Draco and Harry romance.
‘When Draco’s world is literally cast into darkness, both he and Harry realize that sometimes the dark is all a person needs to see more clearly.’
What starts as a dislike for one another grows to an experience that allows both characters to learn, grow, and eventually love with the help of one another. This journey through ‘darkness’ quite literally for one character, shows us all what it means to truly find the light.
This story is sweet, in more ways than one. The title definitely serves to lead readers into preparing for something as such. It’s a delicious dilemma for Draco, and it happens quite literally, in fact.
When Draco goes into the coffee shop of one, Harry Potter, he finds himself feeling much different about the circumstances than he originally anticipated. Not only does he not mind the shop itself, he doesn’t mind the company inside of it or a particularly delicious pastry.
From there, antics ensue and a bit of almost kissing and some literal running away – but it all works out for the best in the end.
