6 Creative Harry Potter Fanfiction Stories to Keep in Your Back Pocket

If you ask fanfiction readers what draws them to their favorite stories, many would tell you that it was the emotional pull of the fic.

Yes, you start reading fanfic because you are, first and foremost, a fan. You stay reading fanfic because it is a world all it’s own. It draws you in and keeps you involved with characters you’ve grown to love in one light.

It allows you to see them in another.

Sometimes that emotional appeal comes from romance or drama.

Other times it comes from mystery or angst.

On some occasions, it comes from a totally unique take on your favorite characters. Those occasions are often our favorite.

For that reason, we decided to take a look at 6 creative Harry Potter fanfiction stories to share with you today!

6 Creative Harry Potter Fanfiction Stories to Keep in Your Back Pocket

Delenda Est by Lord Silvere

Could you imagine a world in which Bellatrix was…dare we say…someone readers rooted for? What about a world where her devotion wasn’t to Voldemort but to Harry Potter himself?

This is the kind of world you’re introduced to when you read Delenda Est.

There’s a definite story to chase here, one that fans of Harry Potter will enjoy but also non-fans. As a stand-alone, for those only loosely familiar with the characters and their personas, it could read as a story all it’s own.

Some may even prefer it that way because let’s face it, some fans have a hard time seeing Bellatrix in a good light.

It’s worth a shot though, we promise!

Harry Potter And The Nightmares Of Futures Past by S’TarKan

This fanfic is definitely unique and creative, and it’s a story some fans will wish had actually played out.

When you’re a fan of a series, regardless of how it ends or what difficulties occur, it’s hard to imagine alternatives – even if part of you really really wants to.

This fanfic gives you that alternate perspective while still holding true to the story.

Harry goes back in time but keeps his memories with him. So an 11-year-old Harry has the memories of 30-year-old Harry. How will it help him change the future…or past?

Will it be worth it?

A Year Like None Other by Aspen In The Sunlight

It’s not a totally foreign idea, but it’s not a well-loved one either.

Snape caring for and loving Harry Potter as if he were his own.

It’s something we quietly rooted for as we read the novels and watched the films, all while knowing it was never meant to be.

We also sort of rooted for a Snape and Lily romance, but never in a tangible sense. More or less, they were those fleeting thoughts that actually wouldn’t have worked had they played out – but sounded good in theory.

This story has a massive following, so we’re not sure it’ll be new to our readers, but it’s certainly worth a read if you’re new to it.

It’s also worth a second read, and it’s not a totally solo venture. So even if you’ve read A Year Like None Other – there are two other stories that follow so you can continue to see the world our characters embrace.

Fantastic Elves And Where To Find Them by evansentranced

We have to admit, even though we knew we were about to read a Harry Potter fanfic, the moment we read elf, we immediately thought of the Christmas film. Just us?

Anyway, this story follows Harry through the realization that he is an elf and not just any elf at that. He’s an elf that belongs in the woods!

You clearly go on a different type of adventure with this fanfic, and it’s totally worth the read. It’s one of those stories that you didn’t know you needed until you’ve read it.

Then, you really can’t get enough.

Twists Of Fate by Lanindur Du’Undarian

We’re fans of vampires. Now, when we say that we mean like almost all ‘genres’ of vampires. Have we binged the Twilight movie saga in one weekend? Yes…more times than we probably should have.
Have we also watched Interview With The Vampire, The Lost Boys, and Dracula like it was our job? Absolutely.
We don’t discriminate! We love them all.
So when we saw a twist on Harry Potter with vampires involved, we were totally sold.
This story is definitely great, and not just in some ‘crackfic’ way, it’s got a solid plot and it’s an awesome read.

The Strange Disappearance of Sally-Anne Perks by Paimpont

This fanfiction almost brings with it a hint of a detective mystery. That being said, Clue is one of our favorite add games so this one is a really interesting story that immediately stuck with us.
Harry seems to remember a student named Sally-Anne Perks being sorted into Hufflepuff during their first year at Hogwarts. There’s nothing too crazy there, except for the fact that no one else seems to remember her existence.
So…that’s a little crazy, but not a totally foreign idea. Maybe she got sick and couldn’t stay long, maybe something happened and she was forced to leave. Those maybes…they don’t seem too promising though.
Stranger still, there’s no record of her ever attending Hogwarts and of course, without her presence, Harry begins to wonder if he’s lost his mind.
With Hermione’s help, he sets off to find out what happened to Sally-Anne, and find a grip on his own sanity.
