Some Harry Potter Fanfic Resources

  • An Archive of Our Own (AO3)
    A fan-created, fan-run archive for fanfiction in just about any fandom. This link leads you to the Harry Potter fandom archive. Inventive and practical use of a tagging system makes this archive different from most — click on a tag in a story’s description, and you’re led to a new list of fics with that same tag. Tags are author-generated and site “wrangled,” so very flexible. For more info, go to AO3’s Home.
  • Close Contrast: Severus and Minerva Master List of Links
    List of links of Severus and Minerva fics. Lots of friendship fics, some romance, some gen. From Alcina, the Winterwitch. Easy-to-use site. Highly recommended!

  • Our Mirror of Erised
    Small Yahoo Group devoted to AU HP fics and rare pairs. Contains downloadable fics, fic recs, loads of links, and friendly folks! (Because some of the downloadable fics are rated M or MA, it is an adult group, but all friendly adult fans of AU and rare pair fics are welcome!)
