Harry Potter is my other fandom soft spot. I love the books, they are brilliant and creative but have their flaws and I think it is this that encorages the sheer diversity of the fanfiction that’s built up around them. On ff.net there are over 500,000 alone! It’s very difficult sorting through this sheer quantity for the real gems so here are some I’ve found to ease the search for others 🙂 I don’t have a particlar favourite theme so the fics I’ve pocked are a real mixed bag.
What if Dudley Dursley had recieved his Hogwarts letter too, cue chaos in the Dursley household 🙂
What if Lucius Malfoy got to Pettigrew before Sirius did? Sirius never ends up in Azkabhan and so moves to Wisteria Drive to help keep an eye on Harry…
What if Snape is Harry’s biological father? This one is believable, no sappyness or sugaryness, Snape is very much in character and neither he or Harry is at all happy about the situation.
