    back to work by TheTartWitch

    A wonderful piece about Percy and what he did during the war.
    He was sorted into Gryffindor after all.

    Together with blood will tell but often it tells too much by elumish this fic adds to my head-canon for Percy since the first time I've read it.

    blood will tell but often it tells too much by elumish

    A wonderful piece about Percy and what he did during the war.
    He was sorted into Gryffindor after all.
    This fic is my head-canon for Percy since the first time I've read it.

    There's also a short sequel (1,834 words), listed as "Work inspired by this one". It's not Percy-centric anymore, but it continues from there and is also very good.

    Despite the sad circumstances the characters find themselves in, both fics were a delight to read.
    I love all the details the author included and it made for a well-rounded narrative.

    Defying the Odds by ChokolatteJedi

    Sirius' girlfriend has more common sense than him and stops him from being an idiot the night the Potters are killed.
    As a result, the following events deviate drastically from canon.

    This is not a "raising Harry" fic.

    If you love Fix-It fics and competent adults, I definitely recommend reading this.
    (There are some errors, but nothing too jarring.)

    Summary

    Harry finds a better life with the basilisk, but that doesn't mean it's easy. From inter-being feuds, to bloody prophecies, to elven unrest, Harry is in the eye of a hurricane that will change the wizarding world forever.

    Involving thestrals, merfolk, house elves, centaurs, acromantulae, and various other friends, denizens, and allies.

    This series is: Queer in a multitude of ways. Morally complex. A massively canon-divergent AU. Filled with oc's and non-oc's. A story about relationships, love, trust, friendship, healing ... and revolution.

    There are seven novel-length fics, plus a prologue (to leap and love the fall) and two short stories (with courage unyielding and the gentle sunlight). All are posted in the correct reading order.

    Series: ever upward by stranglerfig
    On a cold winter night, 8 year old Harry gets thrown out into the garden by the Dursleys. There, he meets a garden snake who cajoles Harry to leave the Dursleys and live with it and its family in their den - "It’s better than this place. Warmer, darker, more meat." - only to realize that Harry's to big to get even partially into the den when they arrive.
    But his new friend and its family don't give up. After all, it has promised Harry a home. And the snakes know of a bigger den: "Biggest one I know of. Can certainly fit a two-legger like you." Okay, there's supposed to be a 'scary' snake, and it's far away, but the snakes are determined that Harry has to go there.
    And so he does.

    A wonderful tale with great worldbuilding and well worth the read.

    Fic 1: to leap and love the fall - 1/1 - 6.685 - G
    The centaur tilted his head. “And what is a human boy doing riding a thestral into the Forest?”
    “I’m going to visit a friend. Well, a friend of a friend. Sort of. It’s a snake in the castle.”

    In which Harry meets a garden snake, discovers magic, and sets off for a better life.

    Fic 2: to be known as himself - 17/17 - 51,601 - G
    Living with the basilisk is going to take some adjusting, like learning to navigate hidden tunnels, keep himself secret, and figure out how to use magic (easier said than done). The castle and forest are full of dangers, and as Harry tries to fit into a world of elves, ghosts, and talking portraits, he'll find out if he's up to the challenge.
