This is a collection of my all-time favorite Harry Potter stories. They run the gamut from completely canon to AU with a wide variety of pairings. These are my go-to stories that I will happily read over and over.

The Right Parent by stelladelnordxd reviews
When Harry has a nightmare at Grimmauld Place, Sirius goes to comfort him, much to the dislike of Molly. The next day however, Molly inadvertently forces Harry to make a choice between her and Sirius as 'the right parent'. TWO-SHOT. Slight 'blink-and-you'll-miss-it' Molly bashing in first chapter. More in second chapter. Sirius/Harry bonding. THERE WILL BE A SEQUEL, GUYS.

After the Boggart by CharmedArtist reviews
In response to marthapreston4's "From Boggarts to Family" challenge: "After Lupin's class where Neville's Boggart turns into Severus Snape everyone laughs it off as childish fear, everyone but Snape. He slowly realizes that there is more to Neville's fear than just a mean teacher. Neville is emotionally and physically abused at home by his grandmother and his uncle." No slash!

No Competition by Evilgoddss reviews
What if the horcrux in Harry's scar hadn't quite been as contained by the Blood Wards as Dumbledore planned. Rather than twisting Harry's personality, it darkened his aura. And the dark creatures of the magical world really liked that aura. Gee. Sucks to be a Dark Lord trying to make your comeback. VERY AU. Just for fun.
