This is a place to collect the best Harry Potter oneshots I've come across. They are drawn from my favorites, the DLP Library, and some of the well-known writers in the fandom. Nonjon, BajaB, and opalish are well-represented.

All genres are present, but there are no slash fics. I'll probably add to the list frequently, so feel free to make suggestions.
