Harry Potter Fan Fiction

I'm feeling the itch, the need, and the strong burning desire to read something from the Harry Potter universe. I'm one step away from memorizing the original works, so was hoping the wonderful souls on mobileread can send some recommendations my way! As I've aged in the last ten years, I'm finding randomly clicking on fanfiction.net and its sister sites less and less productive to yielding anything remotely readable, so site recommendations are also welcomed!

What I usually like:

Harry/Hermione pairings
An adventure book with the romance not being a key component

Thank you!!!

For a continuation of the Potter family story go for the James Potter (Harry and Ginevra's oldest son) series by G. Norman Lippert. Unfortunately it's against the rules to give links to fan fiction here (Google is your friend). There are presently 3 of them with a 4th one due any time now.

I've found the forum "Help! I'm Looking For..." which allows you to request story recommendations from other Harry Potter fans to be a good resource. It's a sub-forum of the Harry Potter fanfic site called FictionAlley, and people post there quite frequently.

http://forums.fictionalley.org/park/...?s=&forumid=19

There's also a sticky on that forum that has several recommendations for various Harry Potter archives.

The best HP fanfic I've ever read was the Psychic Serpent trilogy by Barb Purdom. I don't have the links handy but Google is your friend.

Seriously, her books replace books 5, 6 and 7 and in my opinion are better than Rowling's work.

I's okay that you didn't have the links handy as posting fanfic links is prohibited on MobileRead. And thanks again for your help in locating those ePubs. After much fiddling and editing html code I finally got a much modified ePub to convert to mobi for my PaperWhite. Flightcrew reported so many errors in the code of the original (several hundred maybe) and Calibre worked for 4 hours and still hadn't finished, so that's when I started hand editing, phew! Anyway, thanks again.

WHAT?

I've posted fanfic links before. Nobody's ever said it was against the rules.

Where did you get that code (looked like maybe a code generator)? It displays ok on my Fire 2nd gen using FBReader, but I really don't care to read novels on it, hence the conversion to mobi.

It's been some time so I'm not sure any more, but I think the files were saved html pages from MS Office...

Ah ha! I've never before experienced the HTML generated from MS Office, but read lots of negative comments about it, I guess now I have! What fun.

Wow, I'd missed that.

I've posted links to fics at Archiveofourown several times and nobody's warned me. And I'd argue loudly if they did... AO3 is run by the OTW, which contends that most fanfiction is transformative, not derivative, and therefore covered under fair use laws, at least in the US.
Fair use favors uses that (1) are noncommercial and not sold for a profit; (2) are transformative, adding new meaning and messages to the original; (3) are limited, not copying the entirety of the original; and (4) do not substitute for the original work. None of these factors is absolutely necessary for fair use, but they all help, and we believe that fanworks like those in the archive easily qualify as fair uses based on all these factors.
The vast majority of fanfic fits all four of those criteria.
