I know a decent amount of people use my page to check out new stories so I figured I might as well make it easier on you guys. I'm too busy (admittedly also kinda lazy) to publish any of my stories right now so I am doing this instead.
Starting off with Harry Potter, here are my top 10 favorite HP fics I've read in no particular order. Since it's already hard enough deciding on what to put here I am not going to include any crossovers.
- I'm Still Here by Kathryn518
- A Second Chance At Life by Miranda Flairgold: This one is a classic
- A Necessary Gift: A Harry Potter Story by cosette-aimee
- Deprived by The Crimson Lord
- The Engulfing Silence's Harry Potter series: It's hard to pick one
- Harry Potter, Rise From Dust by Bluezz. It had a unique view on magic and I think it handled the whole wrong Boy who lived trope pretty well. Plus it technically had a very small crossover with Merlin (the Show).
- Survival of the Fittest by Marcelle's Musings
- The Merging by Shaydrall
- Rune Master by Tigerman. It had a unique idea and executed it flawlessly.
- Delenda Est by Lord Silvere. This might be the best Time Travel Harry Potter fic.
- The Well Groomed Mind by Lady Khali
- The Mind Arts by Wu Gung, Harry Potter. The only reason this isn't definitively in my Top 10 is that it's still in the early parts of the story and I am admittedly a bit behind.
- Harry Potter and the Cursed Summer by Mountain907. It had a really unique idea that I just loved, too bad the sequel was never continued.
- For Love of Magic by Noodlehammer. My favorite aspect of this story is how the author approaches magic. Also, unlike a lot of the stories on this list, it's updated frequently.
Honestly, this was harder than I thought, and I most likely forgot some too. Anyway if you're a fan of HP and you haven't read any of these I definitely recommend you check them out.
Next, we have my top 5 Harry Potter crossovers
- A Third Path to the Future by Vimesenthusiast, HP/Marvel - This is probably the longest story I've ever read but It's well worth it.
- Retsu's Folly by nuhuh, HP/Bleach - This hasn't been updated in a while but it still makes it on this list simply because it's the best Bleach story I've ever read.
- The Black Prince by cxjenious, HP/Game of Thrones - It's based on a popular trope but I don't think anyone has done it better.
- The Difference One Man Can Make by joen1801, HP/Game of Thrones
- I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For by kathryn518, HP/Star Wars, - This is probably the best Star Wars crossover
Once again since there are so many Naruto fics I am not going to put any crossovers in this Top 10.
- Better Left Unsaid by Kenchi618, This is the best Naruto fic I've ever read.
- Blind Stars of Fortune by 100demons, An excellent story centered around my favorite Naruto character, Kakashi. Also one of the best Time Travel fics.
- Drifting by Alphadelta1001, - Everything about this story is great. The unique fighting style, Naruto's character, the OCs, relationships, comedy and fight scenes.
- Dreaming of Sunshine by Silver Queen, -A Self-insert done really really well. It deserves its place as one of the most popular stories on the site.
- The Prodigy Namikaze by Soulreapercrewe - This story is already great and it's incredible how much potential it has to be even better. 100,000 more words and I would probably put it above most of the stories on this list.
- Hurricane Suite by Dr. Snakes MD - Just go read it, the summary and the first chapter will sell you on this story better than I ever could. Also, after a couple years away from Fanfiction, the author's been pretty active for the past 6 months.
- Patriot's Dawn by Dr. Snakes MD -
- Life in Konoha's ANBU by Shezza - An in-depth look into Anbu (who despite being hyped up never really did anything of significance in the actual show) along with some of the best fight scenes I've ever read.
- Naruto Potential Realised by Iron Monkey Fist
- Not Sick by Ser Serendipity - A simple but interesting premise which led to an absolutely amazing story.
- Sage by Digitize
- Dance of the Dog God by Tartarun, - Not quite as well known as some of the other stories on this list but it really is a great story. It has a really intriguing premise and unique take on Kakashi.
- Namikaze Legend by Blackwolf501 - Large AU but it's well worth the read.
- Naruto: Great Clan Days by Kenchi618
- Naruto Ouroboros by Maneyan
Now onto my top 10 Naruto crossovers. Small note: Naruto has become the Swiss army knife of crossover stories, he's everywhere and plays every role. On one hand, I love the stories I am gonna put on this list but on the other, I am just gonna beg authors to use other characters in the future.
