    A very interesting Crossover with a bunch of BtVS characters (and a few from ATS) being part of the British wizarding world: Jenny Calendar is an MoM employee and dedicated to getting Muggle technology recognized, Giles is the HoM Professor, Anya the Ancient Runes professor (and ickle Willow starts working on making her Head of Slytherin House instead of Snape ;)) and most of the Scoobies are students, spread through the Houses - and making friends with the "Golden Trio" of course.

    The fic is well written and and both the HP and the BtVS characters are still very much the ones we love from canon even though the BtVS ones were placed into another universe. :)

    The author intends to cover at least Books 1-3, but so far there's just the start of Book 1 yet:

    Fic 1: buffy summers, muggle-born - G
    "A free magic boarding school. Her mom had never wanted to pay for tuition for any boarding school, magic or not, but now Buffy got to have the full experience and it was—thrilling. She was thrilled."

    A wonderful short story how Rita Skeeter is persuaded to write truthful articles and as a result involuntarily becomes a spy for the Light.

    It wasn't always the talented and the gifted that excelled. Sometimes it just took plain sweat, perseverance, and stubbornness to achieve.

    A wonderful take on how Snape became the skilled and exacting wizard and Potion Master we all know from the books

    The world Lomonaaeren built here is wonderful.
    I especially love the description how the goblins come to the decision to take Harry in, and how they treat him as one of their own but still making sure he gets a wizarding education - not only by letting him attend Hogwarts but already before that.
    I also love how Harry's years with the goblins let him see the world with different eyes and how that affects his experiences at Hogwarts.

    Fic 1: Music Beneath the Mountains - 7,324 words - T
    Little Harry Potter wanders away from the Dursleys’ home one day and is found by a goblin on a mission from Gringotts. Harry grows up in the goblin deeps.

    Fic 2: In Their Own Secret Tongues He Spoke - 10,636 words - T
    The second half of goblin-raised Harry’s first year and the first half of his second year at Hogwarts, where he finds even more people, things, and animals to talk to, and manages to gently correct some people’s mistakes.

    Fic 3: The Dragon-Headed Door - 10,706 words - T
    The second half of goblin-raised Harry’s second year and the first half of his third year at Hogwarts. Featuring cursed diaries, humans who don’t take a hint, starving dogs, and werewolves who for some reason want to keep it a secret. Oh, and what’s probably the beginning of the next goblin rebellion.
