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.

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.

Spellist - esama - Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling, The Avengers (Marvel Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
Coulson had tea with the Spellist once every week as work permitted it. It was, right from the beginning, an almost disturbingly casual arrangement.

Harry Potter rolled with the punches with almost offensive ease and just kept on going at a sedate, easy going pace. It was in parts gratifying and extremely frustrating. If the man had had even a bit of ambition he could've made a stellar addition to S.H.I.E.L.D. As it was, his ambition didn't go much past his next cup of tea.

"There's a lot of good things you could do with your abilities," Coulson had to say.

"The Greater Good isn't really my thing," Potter shrugged.

Well… at least he wasn't trying to take over the world. It was nice to have a sorcerer on their side for once – even if his contribution didn't go beyond magical equipment service. [2483]

Making Lemonade - Dayja - Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling [Archive of Our Own]
Life has given Harry a lot of lemons: dead parents, a cupboard under the stairs, horrible clothes, Harry Hunting. The result should have been a downtrodden, sad little boy. It isn’t. [4282]
Harry was never praised. He was put in charge of the garden, a good deal of the household chores, and the cooking. Harry watched his cousin being praised and coddled and given snacks and toys and candy. He watched his cousin sitting in front of the telly or amidst his toys. He watched Dudley struggle with the counting, and scream and throw things.

Dudley, he realized with a great deal of sympathy, must be a bit simple. He knew about kids like that, because whenever they saw one at the park, his aunt would turn her nose up and usher Dudley away, as though afraid it might be catching. He heard other parents and kids whisper about those kids. Some said they shouldn’t come to the park. Other, kinder parents, told their children to be nice to them because they are special and you need to be gentle with special people.

People had to be nice to Dudley because he was special and he needed to be babied, a bit. He needed all those toys and he needed everyone to tell him how special he was. Harry didn’t need that. Harry’s praise wasn’t in words; it was in seeing a job well done. It was in the way his family scarfed down the food he prepared. It was in the way his aunt’s friends all praised her on how clean she kept her house. Dudley had toys and tantrums. Harry had responsibilities and jobs.

The Rules Of Being A Godson - copperbadge - Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling [Archive of Our Own]
Teddy Lupin never gets too close or feels too much; his godfather's son never does anything else. [12,280]

[Pretty sure this is the first fic I've ever read where Teddy is portrayed as more like Remus in character than Tonks, and I really like it.]

The life of a Runner is hell, but even hell doesn't seem so bad when you have decent company. [44,824]

[Surprisingly well done crossover! No perfect-character-solves-everything here; Ronon and Harry are nuanced and have believable weaknesses and strengths that complement each other. I enjoyed this!]

What if, when Petunia Dursley found a little boy...
What if, when Petunia Dursley found a little boy on her front doorstep, she took him in? Not into the cupboard under the stairs, not into a twisted childhood of tarnished worth and neglect—what if she took him in?

Petunia was jealous, selfish and vicious. We will not pretend she wasn’t. She looked at that boy on her doorstep and thought about her Dudders, barely a month older than this boy. She looked at his eyes and her stomach turned over and over. (Severus Snape saved Harry’s life for his eyes. Let’s have Petunia save it despite them).

Let’s tell a story where Petunia Dursley found a baby boy on her doorstep and hated his eyes—she hated them. She took him in and fed him and changed him and got him his shots, and she hated his eyes up until the day she looked at the boy and saw her nephew, not her sister’s shadow. When Harry was two and Vernon Dursley bought Dudley a toy car and Harry a fast food meal with a toy with parts he could choke on Petunia packed her things and got a divorce.

Harry grew up small and skinny, with knobbly knees and the unruly hair he got from his father. He got cornered behind the dumpsters and in the restrooms, got blood on the jumpers Petunia had found, half-price, at the hand-me-down store. He was still chosen last for sports. But Dudley got blood on his sweaters, too, the ones Petunia had found at the hand-me-down store, half price, because that was all a single mother working two secretary jobs could afford for her two boys, even with Vernon’s grudging child support.

TtH • Story • Trinity, by faithunbreakable
Their heads next to each other on the pillow look like night, blood and bleached bones, like chocolate, cinnamon and honey and they make him feel strange and free. [7109]
He slumps against Charlie, too tired suddenly to stand on his own two feet and he laughs. He laughs and laughs and laughs until a soft hand steers his face downward and she asks, Why are you laughing?

He bites back a gasp and stumbles half a step between them and says, I’m too afraid to cry.

[hp] The Pure and Simple Truth
*draws breath* AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH. There is nothing about this fic that is not PERFECT. I can't even with this-- everyone gets the kind of rounded unapologetic diverse characterization they should always have had. Goyle is still dumb and Pansy is still a bitch and Hermione is still convinced she can run everyone's life and Harry still can only get his foot out of his mouth long enough to get the other one in, and IT. IS. PERFECT. AHHHAKJSHKJDSHFKJSDH.

The Zone: Contemporary Magical Innovations
Any substance, object, or spell--no matter how pedestrian--can be, in the right hands, an effective weapon. This is a primary tenet of the Magical Defence Arts and the cornerstone for several ancient and contemporary schools of magical combat (Chapter LXI: Defence Against the Dark Arts, Past and Present). For centuries, wizards and witches have enthusiastically explored the uses of boots, chairs, beer mugs, candlesticks, stale loaves of bread, and other common domestic objects, in addition to rocks, sticks, spit, and more objectionable bodily secretions, not to mention every minor curse, hex, and spell (including, but not limited to Hot Foot, Jelly Legs, and Morning Breath) as viable means of defence. Or offence.

However after the initial revelation that, when in dire straits (i.e. defending oneself against a Dark wizard whilst holding a broken wand) a half-brick stuffed in a sock is better than nothing at all, very few innovations occurred in this arena. Therefore, many centuries worth of subsequent developments can easily be filed under 'variations on a theme.'

Until the year 2008 that is, when two of the more brilliant, cunning, and unconventional wizards of our recent era--Harry Potter and Severus Snape--entered into a surprising partnership and unleashed upon the world an entirely new magical hybrid: the Unconscionables, necessity being the mother of invention after all.

How Much
"I love you," Harry says, very grave, looking over the lip of his cauldron.

"I fear you," Severus says, and he dives for Harry's neglected cauldron just as the Moscarepellum base passes beyond the point where adding rose leaves would prevent a nasty surprise. [457]
