Looking for some fantastic fics? Like seriously, the best Harry Potter fanfiction known to man and his goat brothers? Look no further than the DLP Super-Community, a grouping of fics written by some of the best authors of the fandom - best being that they write for the sake of story or characters, and not for slash purposes or anything silly like that. My very own Breach of Contract is already in there, and I cannot recommend most of these fics enough - seriously, half if not all of them have all been inspirations for me and my own writings. So, without further hedging, just go check it out: http://www.fanfiction.net/community/DLP_5_Starred_and_Featured_Authors/84507/
Hi, I'm Matt Silver 3k, fanfic reader and writer. Apart from Harry Potter, I love me some Dresden Files, but I may never write fanfiction for it, simply because I don't think I'd do the series justice. I love fanfiction in general. It's an awesome idea that does great things to the Harry Potter fandom (And awful things, but I'm being positive). Props go to the good writers out there who see cliche plots and try to warp them, and I'd like to say I've done the same somewhat in my stories. Also a thanks to the fanfiction writers who write stories that make me feel - laughter, sadness, anger (in a good way), or anything similar. My fanfiction likes aren't especially picky, but I dislike the usual suspects (Slash, poorly-written HP/GW) but I read a lot of stuff, even some stupid little things for guilty pleasures - though those I like the most hang out in my Favourite Stories, below.
-- Current/Completed Fics :
To End in Serenity : To End in Serenity is my first story, a little tale I spun together as mostly to practice writing. I'm still working out the kinks before I write any full on fics, hence a 6-part story of 80000 or so words with plenty of room for improvement. The story, originally a one-shot of about 20000 words, is about Harry, Ron and Hermione travelling back in time to not only fix things, but deal with Voldemort's last Horcrux, which was sent to an unknown time. When they arrive in 1994, they find the Horcrux hasn't arrived yet, and do some meddling with the world, fixing things to avoid a long war with Voldemort. So, the Golden Trio have a job to do, and have some fun doing it. It's part humour (Maybe sometimes overly comical), general action/adventure HP stuff, and a little romance just because. Like I said, this story is mostly writing experience and testing the waters, so it has a bit of everything, from romance, manipulative Dumbledore, action, and a tensy bit of angst. If you do decide to give it a whirl, I hope you enjoy the ride! Complete as of 3/2/09! (Looking back over a year later, I will admit to not making this story as best I could using standards I use these days. The concept itself was wasted, and I hope to rectify that one day with To End in Tranquility. I liked some things, of course - the Golden Trio dynamic I wished I had played with more, same with Crouch Jr helping Harry, and Aimee Moon was fun enough to write.)
'Tis the Season of Summertime : A 5-part crack-fic written in To End in Tranquility's downtime. Basically, Harry's Occlumency training manifests in an interesting way, and that interesting way encourages a little reckless fun and light insanity. Features a Harry/Daphne pairing, although that's not specifically a huge focus, unlike the Harry/Aimee relationship in my "To End In" series'. This story is recommended for those who want to laugh, but the plot should hopefully be interesting enough. Here's hoping! The story was originally 3 parts, then expanded into 5. Yeah, it was originally a LOT longer in mind, but writer's block hit me with this story, and I needed to end it. But, there's always a possibility of additional content in that world... Complete as of 11/6/09... Thank god. (Looking back over a year later, I'm going to call this one a failed experiment. Maybe it was a review-lust or something that drove me into Harry/Daphne-dom, and I'm safely going to say I should stay away from purely comedic stories for a bit. But it has its moments, and I don't expressly want to kill it with fire anymore.)
Breach of Contract: Twelve Signs : A 5-part story, 75000 words in length, and my most recent little foray into Harry Potter fanfiction.. The story is told in Harry's 1st person POV, and is a little self-contained tale that takes place after the war. The war's 'desperate times call for desperate measures' attitude for the Light side put them in some Ministry trouble when the smoke cleared after Voldemort's death, and Harry takes drastic steps to fix things and prevent his friends from being prosecuted. A contract is signed in blood, one that must be renewed periodically. Two and a half years later, Auror Harry Potter investigates the case of a wizard killing Muggles, and his various relationships are tested throughout, including his escalating relationship with one Nymphadora Tonks. I hope everybody gives it try even if they hated my last two fics. The story is now COMPLETE, as of the 21st of August, 2010. It's now officially in DLP's library - General Fics section (Which is awesome. Never thought I'd get in there). A big thanks to everybody who reviewed/alerted/community'd/favourited, and to all those that may do so in the future. There may be a sequel in the future. Doubtful. Maybe. Sorta. Hmm...
Incorruptible: The Dementor's Stigma: My promised zombie apocalypse HP story, that became something a bit bigger. Post-DH AU. It's the year 2002, and the world has been ravaged by an outbreak beginning a year previous. The Dementor's Stigma reanimated those who died while affected, and the world near ended soon after. The Muggles were all but wiped out, with less than two thousands survivors in the United Kingdom, split over two towns, Granford and Liliford. The wizarding world, while having just a little more in number, have survived near intact, living in their own communities. While the undead and the Dementors ravage the wastelands, Harry Potter and his friends plan to use the Wizengamot to pass a bill, to abolish the Statute of Secrecy and save the Muggles before the former Death Eaters get to them first. The main pairing is Harry/Astoria Greengrass, with mentions of a former OC love interest, and other main characters include Ron, Draco Malfoy, Neville, Minister Gawain Robards, the Muggles, the Wizengamot, and everyone in between. There are sixteen chapters coming FFnet's way, and nearly 250, 000 words worth of zombies, politics, suspense, intrigue, dark humour, romance, action, and zombies. Complete as 8th of March, 2012. The story can be found in DLP's library, General section again, and also in their C2. While there'll be no sequel, in the last chapter's end of story author's note I detail some plans for what I originally was going to do with To End In Tranquility, which is basically make an AU of my AU. No politics in those though, promise.
-- Future Fics :
I'm always plotting and such, but I can safely say that any ideas for a Breach of Contract sequel or To End in Tranquility have been shelved for the moment. But, I have AU fics planned for zombapocalypse crazy story Incorruptible, the first of which will be called Ashes. There's also my fledging dream to write a Dresden Files fanfic, and a Harry Potter/Dresden cross. We'll just have to see.
