The Other Side by RiverWriter reviews
Harry Potter had never had a true friend. He'd been to war, to hell and back but he'd survived. And then he found a magical object that transported him to a dimension where a woman who might have been a real friend did exist. The problem was that all she saw when she looked at him was her dead best friend. *Written for Harmony & Co's Prompt Bank Garage Sale.*

Harry Potter and the Prince of Slytherin by The Sinister Man reviews
Harry Potter was Sorted into Slytherin after a crappy childhood. His brother Jim is believed to be the BWL. Think you know this story? Think again. Year Four starts on 9/1/20. NO romantic pairings prior to Fourth Year. Basically good Dumbledore and Weasleys. Limited bashing (mainly of James).

Whispers in Her Hair by Indygodusk reviews
In Slytherin, Harry can become powerful and respected. It's hard to make friends with a rival house, but exchanging flying lessons for tutoring is a good excuse. No one needs to know the truth, that Harry's interest in Hermione Granger starts because of an obsession with her hair and curiosity over her confidence with snakes. (Harry/Hermione)

Just A Moment by vanderlustwords reviews
It was just a moment, really. The nights were getting colder and lonelier. It was just a moment of weakness, desperation for some kind of warmth. That's what Harry tells himself. He just wanted a reminder they were still alive, that's all. Because the other alternative was admitting he was in love with Hermione Granger, and he can't. Takes place in DH during the Horcrux hunt.

In order to do what was best for her, Hermione made a drastic life change so she could break free from Harry's obsessive and baneful grasp.

Summer Snows by Rezeren reviews
'The babe reaches up with a small hand and clasps Jon's forefinger with her own tiny, pink fingers. They look so small and weak, yet her grasp is tight and strong. The boy feels his lips curving into a smile.' The five times Jon Snow and Arya Stark made each other smile, and the one time they made each other cry. Set during their childhood at Winterfell.
