"Reverberations" by Aesopianalex
(Harry Potter)
Summary: The summer after the debacle at the Ministry, Draco Malfoy is sent to live with Harry Potter. He writes letters to Severus Snape, telling him how he's doing -- and what's really going on in Harry Potter's house.

Notes: This has very good characterisation of both Draco and Harry; none of this instant friends stuff, but shared adversity certainly breaks down the barriers. Change comes in waves, like the flowing of the tides.

(Harry Potter)
Summary: 'How much do you hate me?' Harry asked Snape. 'Infinitely,' Snape sneered at him. 'How much do you hate Sirius?' 'Also, infinitely.' 'It's commonly understood that there are greater and lesser infinities. Whose infinity is greater?' Mentor/guardian. M for rape, self-harm. No slash.

"The Affairs Of Dragons" by Hayseed
(Harry Potter)
Summary: A story in which the brave hero may or may not rescue the possibly beautiful damsel in distress, who, in turn, may or may not bestow her (potentially ample) favor upon him. And maybe, just maybe, there's not really a hero at all... Pre-SS/HG

"Oh God Not Again!" by Sarah1281
(Harry Potter)
Summary: So maybe everything didn't work out perfectly for Harry. Still, most of his friends survived, he'd gotten married, and was about to become a father. If only he'd have stayed away from the Veil, he wouldn't have had to go back and do everything AGAIN.

Notes: A time travel story that doesn't take itself seriously.

"Digging for the Bones" by Paganaidd
(Harry Potter)
Summary: Rather than allowing Harry to stay at Diagon Alley after he blew up Aunt Marge, the Ministry sends Harry back to the Dursleys. Harry returns to school after a terrible summer, to find that he's not the only one with this kind of secret. A student has been killed by his family. New screening measures are put into place by the Ministry: Every student must be given a medical exam and interview to look for child abuse. With Dumbledore facing an inquiry, Snape is entrusted with the task of making sure EVERYONE receives one.

Notes: This is marvelous, awesome, so very well done. It is also long, very long, but once I started I could not put it down. So if you read it, it might be wise to wait for a long weekend. That's my first warning. My second warning is that it is rather an emotional rollercoaster, and some places do get quite dark; if you find depression and suicidal thoughts triggery, do avoid this. Unfortunately, the author's warning about darkness made me think it was unrelentingly grim, and so I was reluctant to start reading it. But it isn't unrelentingly grim; though I cried in places, I also laughed and smiled. And it does end happily, and for me that's the most important thing in a dark tale.

So, why is this so good? It is not simplistic - that's why it's so long. Difficult problems are neither easy nor simple to deal with. And they aren't just Harry's problems, either. Characterisation is spot-on; character complexities are honoured; there are no whitewashed saints in this story. It steers clear of both melodrama and soppy sentimentality (both of which are pitfalls of this kind of story). There are layers and more layers; things we knew, things we thought we knew, things that we guess at, things that we find out later. There are consequences, and misunderstandings, and the importance of keeping promises.
