HP recs

A fair warning: I’ve been out of HP fandom for quite a while by now. As I read HP fiction nearly not at all nowadays, please don’t expect these listings of mine to be kept up to date. If you report a broken link or suggest a new addition, I might fix/add it… in half a year. So please don’t use these lists as a proper gateway but rather as a general guidance for what to look in other places if you find a dead end here. For new stuff, check comments.

What you’ll find here


These are my recs of HP fiction. I can’t possibly write reviews of all my favourite fics, so I’ll go through my HP folders and pick up everything I loved, liked, found interesting or amusing, and put it all here. And where I did write a rec, I’ll add it.

I should say it at once that of course no, it’s not everything that I liked. For my regret, I often have to read things when I can’t bookmark them, so, most likely, I’ve lost and forgotten another couple of dozens of stories I did enjoy.

Fics are sorted by pairing, then by length within a pairing group, and further within - in alphabetical order.

Rec ’stars’ mean only the extent of my love; there are no fics I didn’t like here.

## — love to bits
# — like very much or consider very interesting
[] — rather like

AU stands for Alternate Universe (also for Alternate Reality ‘cos people use these terms as often interchangeable); WIP means ‘Work in progress’.

Once again, there’s NO fiction I didn’t like here or stories that didn’t work for me. Here, whether with # or not, are only fics I like picked up from thousands of HP fics that I’ve read. I’m not joking, they were, indeed, that many.

This list, naturally, reflects my personality and my preferences only. I don’t pretend to be objective.

Consider yourself warned: there may be warnings in the fic-info here and may be not. I’m not particularly easy to squick; I read everything and anything, even the things I don’t usually like. I’ll add warnings when I remember but I’m not sure I always will remember. So here you can find: chan, character death and afterlife, rape and violence, BDSM, MPreg and weddings, bestiality and cross-dressing and incest, and many, many other things one can find squicky or disturbing. Tread with care.
