Most of them are well written. I can't stand bad grammar and poor plots. There are time travel, traveling to other dimensions, independent harry and mostly harry centric stories. Stories whose plot go nowhere are also regularly removed. For Harry Potter crossovers see my favorites.
Upd 3/20/15: I have been unable to spend time on this community. Looking for staff.

Against My Nature by Araceil reviews
Newt/Harry, Timetravel Shenanigans, Canon Divergent. His plan was to avoid changing the timeline. He knew he wouldn't be able to resist if the opportunity presented itself. So he fled to Africa, where opportunity found him instead.

Tamer by Hikaru Kosuzaku reviews
Harry Potter is tired of the Dursleys. And after seeing how Fudge refused to listen to Sirius's pleas of innocence, he's tired of them too. So he runs away. And finds his purpose. Fourth-year fic. Not Abandoned, but on Hiatus for unknown amount of time.

Harry Potter and the Time of Retirement by 0rigami reviews
When you still have a desire to change your future, time travel may be attractive. But would an old Harry really be interested in reliving his school years, with all those annoying school kids, classes and dark lords? Probably not - but sometimes you don't have a choice. No Slash - no clichè (beside time travel itself) - maybe no romance at all.

A Sorting Like No Other by Stargon1 reviews
The Sorting Hat (or Brian to his friends) has had enough of being told by Albus Too-Many-Names Dumbledore exactly how certain new students should be sorted. For once, he's going to take matters into his own, um, hands? The incoming class of 1991 isn't going to know what hit them. Get ready for a Sorting like no other! One Shot.

Harry channels his inner Slytherin by slytherinsal reviews
set following the pensieve incident during occlumensy, Harry has a sudden fit of the smarts and works to enlist more active aid from Snape. Unkind to Dumbledore and some Weasleys. Umbitch gets hers. Hermione has to think, and wises up. A peek at what might happen if the occasional use of logic and intellect was applied instead of hokey reasoning and blind belief in prophecy.

The Great Taboo Turkey Shoot by bissek reviews
Everyone fears to speak his name, because doing so brings his followers to you. He never considered that such a thing is a double-edged sword.

Why to Sort a Student is a Horrible Job by Ebenbild reviews
The Sorting Hat needs a vacation after it was forced to sort a special student. Sadly, Albus isn't happy with the idea. Luckily, there're always old... friends (?) who are willing to help out. If the Hat had known, it would have stayed home... AU Reincarnation-fic.

The Slytherin Way by Ebenbild reviews
"You just yelled at me to get me to stop," she pointed out. "It's two weeks until the Yule Ball, I'm a girl, you're a boy and as far as I know you're still without a date – what else should I think at a time like that?" Draco Malfoy really likes to insult Hermione. In fourth year she finally decides to turn the tables on him in a most Slytherin way. Canon compliant.

The Closer You Look by Tony Samuels reviews
Not a lot of things could affect Harry's mundane life in the house of his abusive relatives. But then, you don't need extraordinary things to obtain extraordinary results. A seemingly simple step pitched his life into a direction no one had ever expected. Harry Potter, the Jack of all trades and Master of Misdirection. Intelligent! Harry.

Play to Your Strengths by Lady FoxFire reviews
Before the first task in the Tri-Wizard Tournament, Moody told Harry to 'play to your strengths' and Harry took those words to heart. Of course the Wizard World was less than pleased with the new Harry.

Many Thanks by Madm05 reviews

Harry Potter and the Overworked Headmaster by Jedipilot24 reviews
My take on the "Sirius Black is married with a child" plot, except that it's not enough to keep him out of Azkaban. But at least he managed to rescue Harry from the Dursley's. You'd think that Dumbledore would notice this and he would have...if he didn't have three full-time jobs. Eventual HHR.

Acceptance by AsphodelWolf15 reviews
If Vernon and Petunia were so concerned about their image why did they treat Harry the way they did? A child with a bad reputation living in their house forced them to tell tales, when it would have been much easier if they treated him like part of the family. How would Harry have turned out if he was accepted? (This is not for Dumbledore fans)
