Harry Potter Fic Recs

My HP Fic Recs. I tend to like multi-chapter epics (50,000+ words) and the majority of them are rated R/NC-17. I much prefer fics that aren't on fanfiction.net, but I won't rule out reading them if there are good reviews (gushing over the author doesn't count) even then I'm leery however. I also prefer completed fics, I've been burned too many times by WIP's, my one continual exception is AYLNO.

A note to all HP authors: If you have fic on FF.net, please consider moving it to AO3 or another HP archive. There are many to choose from, if you need help finding one, ask, please, it will only work to your benefit.

Why, yes I've found a fandom where I like Het pairings. ;) It happens so rarely it deserves special notice. *grins*

NOTE: Updated Sept 19th 2014

Recs are divided up by pairing

You can find more recs in my memories here, with my recs tag here and on AO3 here. All these links have multifandom recs, not just HP.
