    Summary

    An alternate point of view of Not With a half-blood. The exact same story.

    Daphne was going to survive the coming war. Her parents had 'A Plan'. And it made her little sister very happy, so it was worth it, she supposed. But allying with the Malfoys to take the Black fortune meant... having to have a child with Draco one day. Ugh. Then the war ended rather unexpectedly, but the Malfoys had somehow changed sides. And then, she met Harry Potter at a Ministry ball and it all went horribly, terribly wrong.

    Summary

    As Draco Malfoy rockily drifts through his life following the end of the war, he is greatly affected by an inner turmoil so imposing that it threatens to tear him apart. And once again, Harry Potter tries to save that which cannot be saved.

    ---

    Excerpt: "Naturally, Harry recalls a comment on Malfoy’s ill appearance from Hermione nearly a year ago: “He looks different this year, Draco, as if he’s sick,” she had said something to that effect, to which Harry had replied, “Who could tell the difference?” very dutifully.

    At the time, he’d been less concerned with how the git looked and more so occupied with his newly appointed Death Eater-ness. He could convince himself of that.

    Although now, this change was unmistakable, and Harry could certainly tell the difference."

    Summary

    “Obito?”

    “Who's Obito!? My name is Hari!”

    Harry Potter should have lived, but died. Uchiha Obito should have died, but lived. What happened afterwards was an accident by Death, but the Elemental Nations would have to live with the fallout.

    Summary

    Harry took the Draught of Living Death in an effort to follow his family and friends into death. He didn't expect to wake up in a completely different world where magical creatures were now known as Wesen and where people fight over the ownership of seven familiar keys that may or may not lead to a now empty vault that he once woke up in. He also didn't expect to feel a pull to a certain police captain that tended to be as infuriating as he was hot, but hey, that was nothing compared to a day in the life of being Harry Potter, right?

    Summary

    Harry’s not really sure how he got here, if it was a botched attempt of murder or a sadistic twist of fate, but he was here, inexplicably staring at a very much alive Alastor Moody in Diagon Alley after fighting Death Eaters. And oh look, there’s James Potter and Sirius Black.

    Wait, what?

    Summary

    It had been twelve years since he killed Voldemort. It had been twelve years since he died and came back to life. It had been twelve years since he became the Master of Death. It had been twelve years since his heart stopped beating.

    Twelve years after the Battle of Hogwarts, the dead started walking. It changed very little for Harry Potter, already traveling the world alone as a grim reaper, and he swore to himself that he wouldn’t get involved beyond doing his job. He was suddenly very busy, after all. It was hard for souls to move on when their bodies were still shambling around, and there were more dead than living these days. He had already saved the world once; it was someone else’s turn.

    And then he heard a little girl in the middle of a forest, screaming, sobbing, terrified, and alone as the dead cornered her.

    Harry always did have a saving people thing, didn’t he?

    Summary

    Set in Harry's fourth year, follows him and his growing relationship with Cedric Diggory as they compete in the tournament. Apart from Hedric being non-canon it will be mostly canon-compliant (as far the general plot goes, I probably won't include the more specific details from canon), with lots of fluff and probably some angst.

    Summary

    Sirius Black falls through the Veil. Harry Potter, with a constant refusal to lose, to let those he loves die, follows.

    They come out the other side; inserting themselves into a world that is their own, but different. There is something blatantly and disgustingly wrong here. Tom Riddle is president. Harry Potter is his right-hand man. Sirius Black is in love with the wrong man.

    And it seems Harry is too.

    In other words: Harry Potter tries to get back to his world, and Tom Riddle finds him so interesting he does not want to let him.

    ...

    Tom's eyes are narrowed. "Tell me, Harry. What is that?"

    "This," Harry weighs the heavy thing in his hand, "is a gun."

    "It's not Auror issued," Tom states, cautious and almost, Harry would say, if he didn't know better, betrayed.

    "No," says Harry. "It's not. It's Muggle."

    Tom eyes him. Considers if he can run, if he can fight -- but he's always admired Harry's muscles, in his own fucked up sort of way. This is not a fight he can win. There is nowhere to run.

    "Are you going to shoot me, Harry?"

    "What do you think?"

    "I think," says Tom, almost too quiet to hear, "you love me."

    Summary

    Quirkless.

    20% of the world's population is classified as Quirkless, and Izumi fell into that category.

    Or did she?

    The truth is the 'Quirkless' are really Mystics in hiding.

    And the one who rules over them is Mystic Mother or Helena Rosemarie Potter, the Girl Who Lived/Witch Who Won.

    After inheriting the Hallows, she found herself unable to die as her friends withered and eventually the Mystic World gained her as their queen as pureblood lines vanished.

    She reigned over them for 400 years and has been on Earth for 500 years.

    One day while on a business trip to Japan, she meets 4 year old Izumi who posseses strong magic and the Hallows choose her as an heir.

    So Helena takes her as an apprentice and heir, thus changing the original plot.

    What will happen when years later Izumi returns from England and meets a certain Gamer Boy?

    If someone tried to stop her, she just might stay.

    But she can’t, not when it’s all her fault, not when she can do something to stop it.

    Summary

    your broad shoulders, my wet tears
    you're alive and I'm still here

    there's love that is a saviour
    but that ain't no love of mine

    Or when nothing has made sense in years except Teddy, Draco's life is far from what he'd imagined. But then circumstances out of his control arise - ones that happen to be intrinsically linked to Teddy's other father figure.

    Then it's no longer a question of what he's protecting Teddy from, but who. And how much of it can he blame on Harry Potter.

    Somewhere between forgiveness, acceptance, recovery, a Hero Complex and a Villain Complex, a broken family gets glued together.

    Summary

    “I’m sorry, Sirius,” he said aloud, because what else could he say?
    As far as last words went those weren’t bad.

    He really was sorry.
    For everything.
    At least now he could never hurt Sirius again.

    And as the inferi pulled his head underwater he couldn’t help but smile.

    Summary

    Harry is growing annoyed at the ongoing war so he goes snooping. When he finds a kid in a pod waiting to be decommissioned he's not going to leave him behind. And it's not like he knows nothing of being raised for war and hurt. Even if it has been millennia since he was a child.

    Summary

    Inspired by My Time by DebsTheSlytherinSnapeFan because it is amazing and I highly recommend it. I just wanted to write my own version of that kind of story. There will be similarities between my story and Debs' but there will also be a lot of differences.
    Harry is killed by Ron on his eighteenth birthday. He wakes up in the version of King's Cross he ended up in the first time he died but this time he meets Death and Ignotus Peverell who give him some options. He chooses option number three; go back to 1947, fall in love with Orion Black, and although he can choose not to save the world this time, he can't help but want to try anyway. It was the way he was raised, like a pig for slaughter. You can't just unlearn that behaviour after being pushed into it for eighteen years.
    Let's see how well he does as Lord Hadrian Ignotus Peverell with the Black family on his side, along with a bunch of his dead loved ones, maybe a few surprises along the way also, and a couple of not so surprises.
    I don't own Harry Potter.

    Summary

    Draco still wasn’t sure whether staying at Hogwarts during the winter break was an intelligent decision, but since the Hogwarts Express had already departed and was on its way to London’s King’s Cross, it wasn’t like he could simply change his mind and hop aboard.

    Summary

    What if, after the horrifying events during the Triwizard Tournament, Harry Potter didn't start dreaming of closed doors? What if he dreamt of something, or rather someone else instead? What if he found solace in the dreams? And what if, in the midst of all those conflicting dreams, he decided that the Dark Lord was still worth saving?

    Alternatively: I have no idea what's going on but everyone needs a hug.
    WARNING: While the fic is overall somewhat sweet, there will be loads of moments that could act as triggers or make you highly uncomfortable, their count mostly increasing as the story progresses. It will also be quite the slow burn, so don't expect Tom to be magically fixed in the first few chapters. You have now been warned, enjoy :D
