Have you ever read a fanfiction story that was so gripping you had no other reaction other than to genuinely scream? We know we’re guilty of the fanfiction-reading scream, in fact, we’ve experienced it in varying degrees.
There’s the short yet high pitched scream, the ‘more of a gasp but still a scream’ scream, the ‘a little bit pained’ scream, and the ever famous silent scream.
Now, when we say we’re ‘screaming’, it can be from an array of emotions. We could be totally excited, overly emotional, in shock, or really happy. It’s a sort of umbrella term of expression if you will.
So we wanted to share 7 Harry Potter fanfiction stories with you this week that will have you screaming, too.
This one is sure to have you wondering what realm of the Harry Potter fandom you truly stepped into. As a Harry Potter fanfiction, we knew we’d be reading about Wizards…the vampires were the new ingredient here.
It’s not a bad recipe either.
There are times you’ll hate characters you’ve loved before in this fic. We’re not talking about those existing love-hate relationship kind of characters either, we’re talking about the ones you’ve only ever loved before…and it’s a strange feeling.
This one will have you screaming in that totally and completely overly emotional way. You know, when you didn’t even know you wanted something but you happen upon it and it’s suddenly one of the greatest things in the world? Yeah, like that.
We didn’t ever really ‘ship’ Harry and Hermione, but this story really paints the picture in our heads. They work together…even when they don’t, and what love is truer than love that doesn’t falter?
Clearly, this one is about bringing a child into the family, and the ups and downs that come along with it.
This is another ‘fandom blending’ fic but it, too, stands really well on its own. Of course, you have to know about both The Avengers and Harry Potter to get a good feel of why the author chose to pick these different (yet similar enough) bases to form their own story from.
Nick Fury is an Avenger favorite for us, so it helped that he was a big part of this story, too.
This fic is a one-shot so it leaves room for you to take the story and make it your own once you’ve finished reading it. We love fics that build a strong and interesting storyline while still leaving room for readers to explore their own ideas.
You’ll see Steve and Tony and Bruce, amongst other familiar Marvel names within the story as well, and the storyline itself is just wild enough to be gripping.
Check it out for yourselves!
It should come as no surprise to our readers that we’ve always had a soft spot for Snape. We’ve said it in a number of articles now and our friends all know it too.
One of our favorite parts of this fic is that Snape is a deeper character, or rather, you get to truly see his depth differently.
You’ll also find a beautiful sense of irony in the death of Voldemort, and we don’t usually relish in death, but this one is just so perfectly crafted that you’ll find it almost perfect.
The reason for the differences in the story? Well, it’s quite simple. For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
If we remember correctly, we’ve recommended this fic for you before, but it’s included again for good reason. There are a number of stories we’ve saved that we come back to when we just need a reminder, or a release, or an escape.
Isn’t it the same with everyone?
This story is sad, but not in the way you might first expect. The title is innocent enough right? A premise comes to mind – a playmate, a friend, a companion.
If only it were that simple.
We read the reviews on this story before we read the actual story, and it piqued our interest from the very beginning. So many people said it was cute, that they laughed and cried and smiled and felt genuinely happy after reading it.
Who doesn’t want to get all of those giddy emotions when they’re reading fanfiction?
Now onto the story, this focuses on Sirius, Remus, and McGonagall, the latter of the two who plays a matchmaker of sorts.
At four chapters, it’s a fic you can easily read in a day, and we won’t give too much away in case you plan on doing just that.
We will say, however, that we laughed and cried and smiled and felt extremely happy while reading it too. So if you’re in the mood for a feel-good story, this is it.
Another one shot where the only downfall is, you’ll be left wanting more. Now, that doesn’t mean this fic isn’t perfectly wrapped up as is, because it is…but the writing and pace and characterization in this one is almost intoxicating.
It’s one fanfic we were speechless after reading.
It deals with loss in a way that we can relate to. It deals with what Reemus is feeling inside vs what those around him are feeling. What he wishes he were feeling vs what he can’t escape. It’s realization and understanding and pain and forgiveness and the broken sense of hope and love that dies alongside the ones we lose.
You’ll definitely cry reading this one, and the screaming? That’ll probably come from a loving (and angry) place towards the author because it is so…so real.
We hope that you’ll laugh, cry, and actually maybe scream when you read these stories. Maybe there’s a new one you’ve not discovered yet, maybe we listed an old favorite that slipped your mind. No matter what, these stories are certainly going to keep you on your toes.
