Stories that are not quite good enough to be added to my Favorites but that I like (parts or all of) enough to note. Others looking for recommendations should check out my Favorites list (from the Founder link above) first.

These stories might have tons of plot holes, unrealistic behavior of characters, or implausible wish-fulfillment and Mary-Sue-ism. But they might also have an intriguing premise, interesting characters and characterizations, or good jokes.

Attack of the Deranged Mutant Killer Monster Dark Lord by The M M reviews
Calvin's eleven years old - well, technically, anyways, but his shorts still reach his ankles - and not much has changed. Until the letter from Hogwarts, that is. *dramatic music* *sense of foreboding* *bloodcurdling screams echoing in the distance*

Veritas Oracle by BajaB reviews
A series of Vignettes involving possibly the second most powerful but underused magic in the HP universe, Veritaserum. AU after GOF. Rating increased to T due to a bit of implied sexual situations, attempted suicide, abuse, and other nasty stuff.

Meet the Arcs by College Fool reviews
Ruby thought the hard part of dating Jaune was long over. They'd gotten their friends' approval. They'd gotten Yang's approval. They'd even gotten Dad and Uncle Qrow's approval, which had been only slightly more trying than confessing to Jaune in the first place. So meeting his family should be smooth sailing… right?

What Happens in Vacuo, Stays in Vacuo by Coeur Al'Aran reviews
Finally the week's holiday before the Vytal Festival, and for Professor Arc, it couldn't have come soon enough. Especially when he manages to snag tickets to one of the most expensive resorts in Vacuo. A full week's rest to himself, with no criminals, no crazy students - and definitely no vicious little multi-coloured slaver. Seven days with just sun, sand, sea and Neo... wai-Neo?

The Love of a Father by batrax reviews
This is a one-shot spin-off of 'Lady Archimedes', sequel of 'The Arithmancer', an amazing HP fic by White Squirrel, but actually it could be applied to a lot more fanfictions and maybe even to the original story. In my opinion, this is what would happen if Hermione's parents were not forced to behave like NPCs by plot requirement. Divergence from 'Lady Archimedes' at chapter 23.
