The Art of Self-Fashioning - Lomonaaeren - Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling [Archive of Our Own]
In a world where Neville is the Boy-Who-Lived, Harry still grows up with the Dursleys, but he learns to be more private about what matters to him. When McGonagall comes to give him his letter, she also unwittingly gives Harry both a new quest and a new passion: Transfiguration. But while Harry deliberately hides his growing skills, Minerva worries more and more about the mysterious, brilliant student writing to her who may be venturing into dangerous magical territory.

Fire Burn and Cauldron Bubble - pandacowhipster - Teen Wolf (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
When potions prodigy Stiles blows up one cauldron too many during one of his ‘experiments’, he gets assigned to making Wolfsbane Potion for the new groundskeeper. Which wouldn’t be so bad if the guy wasn’t you know, terrifying.

Unafraid - buttered_onions - Voltron: Legendary Defender [Archive of Our Own]
Something big is happening at Hogwarts this year; Shiro's really not worried about it. Hufflepuffs aren't known for making history.

Usually. [6911]

[This entire fic is beautiful, warm, and not shy about making sure you know that everything good mentioned is just the calm before the storm.]

The Turning of the Tide - Delphi - Harry Potter - Rowling [Archive of Our Own]
Loyalty, duty, and the last days of the war. [15331]
His father taught him how to shave by hand when he was fourteen—said it was something every man should know how to do. It's awkward but not very much more difficult to shave someone else, though he sloshes the water a little and gets lather on the corner of Moody's lips.

He brushes it away with his thumb and pauses. If he were being truly honest, he might admit that it's nothing more than an excuse to touch him. The bowl of warm water is perched just as precariously in his lap as he is between all the medical equipment, sitting close enough for their hips to touch, lingering with one hand on a newly clean-shaven cheek.

Kingsley isn't the hand-holding sort. Even if he were, Moody's hand is freezing and limp, but this way he gets to fill up some of the awful ache gnawing a hole in his chest. His body calms a little, missing something he didn't even know he'd grown accustomed to. And he can pretend, as he feels the soft, even whisper of breath against his fingers, that Moody will open his eyes at any moment and give him hell for dripping water on the pillow.

Roar - Elenothar - Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
After Graves' fourth escape attempt Grindelwald decides that turning the man into a magical creature - a process thought to be impossible to reverse - will take care of the problem quite nicely. Too bad he didn't anticipate Newt Scamander. [62484]

The Changeling - Annerb - Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling [Archive of Our Own]
Ginny is sorted into Slytherin. It takes her seven years to figure out why. [182,592]

[So good! Long read and amazingly satisfying. This is one fic where Ginny is not a freaking doormat; she forges her own path, by accident or otherwise, with a supporting cast of multiple strong, caring, fully-fleshed Slytherin OCs and side characters that are primarily female.]

Soulmate Shorts - Chapter 5 - cywscross - Harry Potter [Archive of Our Own]
Pairing: Bill Weasley/Harry Potter/Fleur Delacour
Prompt: The one where you don’t know your soulmate(s) until you touch them. [9880]
Harry finds Bill first. He tumbles out of the fire and into the Weasleys’ kitchen the summer before his fourth year, and the moment he shakes Bill’s hand and feels that flood of warmth that he’s only ever heard other people talk about, he knows.

Bill knows too if the way his eyes go wide and his hand tightens briefly around Harry’s is anything to go by. There’s no time to talk about it right then and there though, not with Mr. Weasley apparating home the next moment, angry at the twins’ prank on Dudley, and then Mrs. Weasley is there, and half the house devolves into a shouting match before Harry can get a word in edgewise. He follows his friends upstairs, something cold ebbing into his chest as he leaves Bill behind even as his newly discovered soulmate remains a noticeably new presence at the back of his mind.

Percy remembers idolising his older brothers growing up. He doesn't play favourites anymore. He's not exactly spoiled for choice. (Or, Percy's side of the story.) [2400]

For Teddy Lupin, Harry Potter would become a Dark Lord. For Teddy Lupin, Harry Potter would take down the Ministry or die trying. He should have known that Hermione and Ron wouldn't let him do it alone. [138,205]

[Epically long and sooo good. Must reread before tagging]

Silence - dragons_and_angels - Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling [Archive of Our Own]
Lee already lost one friend. He wasn't going to lose another. [983]
"You know how people say it gets better and time heals all wounds?" Lee asked suddenly. George didn't answer but Lee was sure he had heard this from some stupid well-meaning person who didn't know what to say and so managed to say the worst cliche possible. "That's a lie. You'll have your first child and it will still hurt that Fred isn't here to see them. But you get used to it."

embellishing my elegance and eloquence - American(ish) Wizards - American(ish) Wizards
Ok but pueblo schools where vaquero children go and learn to read and write and tell where water’s going to be in 3 months; they’re open year round but each student only has to come for 9 months so they can still help with the cattle drive

Northwest longhouses where everyone sits together and tell stories and show carvings; the carvings move and some of them tell their own stories, the totem poles out front speak if you’re polite.

as green as a fresh pickled toad - Chapter 20 - LullabyKnell - Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling [Archive of Our Own]
Ch. 20 -- A Different Sort Of Sorting -- And then the Sorting Hat sends an Avery off to Gryffindor and an Abbott off to Ravenclaw, despite the families’ respective long and prestigious histories in Slytherin and Hufflepuff. What the actual fuck is happening, no one says aloud, as a Bulstrode goes off to Hufflepuff and a Longbottom cousin goes into Slytherin. [22,735]

Quiet Like a Fight - MzMinola - Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling [Archive of Our Own]
Harry Potter and the Dormitory Under the Stairs -- In which Harry Potter sleeps the whole way to Hogwarts, gets Sorthed into Slytherin, and spends his first year making friends, forging alliances, and breaking Snape's will to live. [33,796]
“How do you feel about Slytherin?”

-What?- Harry thought, startled. His stomach abruptly unknotted and he sat up straighter. -Um, fine? Anything’s fine, really. Um. Thank you?-

“Excellent,” the Hat said. It sounded…smug? Before Harry could think about that further, it roared out the name SLYTHERIN! so loud that Harry jumped.

The hall went sharply silent.

As Harry handed the Sorting Hat back to Professor McGonagall, he saw that most of the teachers at the high table behind her were rather stunned. One in particular, with long black hair that was so greasy Aunt Petunia would have fainted, looked as though he had been hit on the back of the head with a board. Only Professor Dumbledore seemed unsurprised, though thoughtful.
