I'm sort of picky when it comes to fanfiction.

I can’t help but be fond of Christopher Eccleston’s Doctor. He was the 9th, in case you don’t keep track of such things. And as always, I fall hard for the slash pairing that seems to be one of the least common . . .

And as always, check back every so often.  I do update – not as often as I’d like, but it does happen.

Also, the ones in bold are major favorites.

Tom/Harry – Voldemort/Harry

This category is referred often along fanfic circles as “Tomarry” or “Harrymort,” the same way that Snape/Harry and Snape/Lupin are referred to as Snarry and Snupin, reflectively.

My first foray into this world was the fic by Batsutousai called “Xerosis,” where Harry Potter goes back in time and redoes the world with the eventual help of Lord Voldemort.  Of course that fic will be on this list, but the fact that I even have enough to put into a list is extremely telling of how far I’ve come into this genre.

Likewise, I suppose that the Xerosis fic has permanently broken me for my choices in this field.  I prefer a Voldemort-Harry relationship that has some equality in the interactions between the two of them.  Of course, not all of them begin with this equality.  Respect for Harry–and for Voldemort–must be won.

This post is particularly important now, given that so many HP rec lists are so often full of broken links.  That said, you can always let me know if any of my links are broken by replying to the post that the broken link lives in.  Also, if you have any recs for any of my posts, feel free to make them.  I will attempt to read them and if I like them, they will be added to the appropriate list(s).

Tom Riddle/Harry Potter or Lord Voldemort/Harry Potter

LOTR Elrond Slash

I haven’t the faintest idea how I got into this genre.  I blame it on the ever elusive elfling!Harry fics.

Elrond doesn’t respond; he hears the words, but they sit idle in his mind as he tries to make sense of them. “Kitten?” the Councilor repeats, and that gets his attention because only Erestor calls him that, and usually only in bed.
My Warnings: Adorableness, sweetness

Battlestar Galactica Slash

Recently started watching Battlestar Galactica (2003) with a friend of mine, because the local Blockbuster is finally going out of business.  Mostly done with season 1 and I’ve only just now started wondering about various characters as potential slashy characters.  *grins and rubs hands*  Anywho, I found a few between Colonel Tigh and Commander Adama and thought I’d share.

Tigh and Adama (not slash)

Solitary Acts by tjonesy
Summary:  Boys will be boys.
Warnings:  Masturbation
My Opinion:  Ridiculously funny

William Adama/Saul Tigh

Apogee, Perigee by fragrantwoods

Yes, I am devoting one entire post just to one fic. Luckily, this fic can also be considered a resorting fic, so it ties nicely in with the previous post.

Xerosis by Batsutousai

Warnings: Major Character Death, Alternate Universe, Dark!Harry, evil!Harry, semi-super!Harry, M/M, F/M (references to)
My Warnings/Opinion: Slash (but only in the very mild, most basic form), Ravenclaw!Harry, quasi-Vampire!Harry, time travel
Length: Complete, 135K

As to my opinion, this is one of the few stories (fan-fiction and otherwise) out there that I have ever read multiple times through in one sitting. I think I’ve reread this story at least 10 times now, if not twice that number. I get to the end of it and I go back to chapter 1 to read it again. I like it that much. It’s a do-over fic, but a far more awesome one that any I’ve ever read. For one thing, it’s funny despite a great deal of horror (especially in the beginning). And the relationship between Voldemort and Harry is largely the reason behind that humor. Now, if that’s not unexpected, I’m not sure I know what is.

Anywho. Read it or don’t, but don’t miss out just because my words have failed to properly convey how awesome this fic is.

As hard as it is to find a good, “Harry gets somewhere other than Gryffindor,” fic, it’s even harder to find one that is complete.  So, therefore I included a few that I might not have otherwise, simply because they are not WIPs.

Here’s painless_j’s AU Sorting List, in case you’re interested.

Sorted into Hufflepuff

For Want of a Quill by Veytta
Summary: First Year AU. Alternate Sorting. Ron finds a different compartment to sit in, Harry travels alone to Hogwarts and that small change changes the world in ways big and small. No pairings!
My Warnings: WIP
Length:  40K

Sorted into Ravenclaw

Accidental Hero, aka The Absentminded Ravenclaw by Nia River
Summary: ON HOLD. Freaky connections aside, does anyone else think it strange that Harry survived a Killing Curse with little more damage than a scar? Well, what if he hadn’t come through so unscathed? And what if the other damage was more mental than physical?
My Warnings/Opinion: Non-Linear progression, Luna/Harry, though it says it’s a WIP, it could be considered complete as is.

Harveste Addams and the Sorcerer’s Stone by kyaru-chan
Summary: A little death can change so much. Delightful, isn’t it?
My Warnings/Opinion: Wonderful story. I liked it so much. Surprisingly enough, it only has around 200 reviews and that’s a shame. We should do something about that. Crossover with The Addams Family, Harry (pronounce Harry like the “Har” in “Hard” or “Harvest” as opposed to “Hairy”) is a also a crossdresser.  His friends are:  Hermione, Draco and Blaise (the male version, thank god).  In addition, there is Professor Snape and even he doesn’t know how to react to Harveste Addams. Much fun.

Big Bang Theory

Without access to a TV or a lot of free time on my hands, I only manage to catch Big Bang Theory episodes in a non-consecutive fashion.  That said, not a whole lot of people write fic in this genre, and only a few do it well.  Of course, that’s normal across the board for fanfiction, but in this particular case, the numbers are surprisingly low.

For example, as of June 2012, Fanfiction.net had just over 2K in BBT stories.  By comparison, there were over 20K stories in the Criminal Minds fandom, and 30K in NCIS.  And these are both considered small numbers by TV Tropes, especially once you think of the HP fandom; which has nearly 600K stories on FF.net alone.

Anywho.  Currently my ship preference is Leonard/Sheldon, but that might change in the future.  I don’t really ship anyone on the show, but these next fics are just too good to pass up.

Leonard H./Sheldon C.
