  1. 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.

    1. Woah! This is awesome! With all of these recommendations and the 85,000 stories we need to sift through on HarryPotterfanfiction.com, we’re so excited to tackle this Fandom! Ah! Such exciting times :)) -Gwen and 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

  3. Some of my Favourite Fanfics that are completed include:

    1. Run by Toujours Padfoot.
    2. HP and the Summer After the War and it’s sequel HP and the Winters After the War by Mrs_Granger.
    3.. HP and the Conspiracy of Blood by CambAngst.
    4. Off the Rails by Waterlily43175.
    5. Delicate and it’s sequel Still Delicate by Padfoot4ever.
    6. James Potter Series (5 books) by G. Norman Lippert.
    7. Breaking the Quidditch Code and it’s sequel Decoding the Tutshilll Tornadoes by Mistress.
    8. Albus Potter Series (7 books) by NoahPhantom.
    9. Ignite and it’s sequels Starfall and Oblivion by Slide. (This is my all time favourite, great storylines and you learn a lot as well)


    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. I also wanted to say a gigantic thank you to you both for what you’re doing for HPFF! Can’t wait to see what you have in store for us!

        1. Awh, thanks so much! We’re just so glad we were able to save the stories and are thrilled to be able to grow the HPFF site – the community has been so welcoming in this first week since the announcement and we can’t wait to get things back up in running in the next few weeks. Thank you for the comment, it means a lot to us 🙂 – Gwen & Ronnie

  4. 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.

  5. 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?

  6. https://archiveofourown.org/works/1134255/chapters/2292768 : Sherlock crossover: Everything started with a stumble – his new life in a new world as well as his surprisingly successful career as a medium.

    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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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!


  9. 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.

  10. 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

  11. Harry Potter and the lightning lord by colt01
    Saviour of Magic By: Colt01
    Black Bond by Rajatarangini
    Sacrifices arc (7 books, 3 million words) by lightning on the wave
    Dangerverse by whydoyouneedtoknow

  12. 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!
