    Defying the Odds by ChokolatteJedi

    Sirius' girlfriend has more common sense than him and stops him from being an idiot the night the Potters are killed.
    As a result, the following events deviate drastically from canon.

    This is not a "raising Harry" fic.

    If you love Fix-It fics and competent adults, I definitely recommend reading this.
    (There are some errors, but nothing too jarring.)

    Summary

    Harry finds a better life with the basilisk, but that doesn't mean it's easy. From inter-being feuds, to bloody prophecies, to elven unrest, Harry is in the eye of a hurricane that will change the wizarding world forever.

    Involving thestrals, merfolk, house elves, centaurs, acromantulae, and various other friends, denizens, and allies.

    This series is: Queer in a multitude of ways. Morally complex. A massively canon-divergent AU. Filled with oc's and non-oc's. A story about relationships, love, trust, friendship, healing ... and revolution.

    There are seven novel-length fics, plus a prologue (to leap and love the fall) and two short stories (with courage unyielding and the gentle sunlight). All are posted in the correct reading order.

    ever upward by stranglerfig
    On a cold winter night, 8 year old Harry gets thrown out into the garden by the Dursleys. There, he meets a garden snake who cajoles Harry to leave the Dursleys and live with it and its family in their den - "It’s better than this place. Warmer, darker, more meat." - only to realize that Harry's to big to get even partially into the den when they arrive.
    But his new friend and its family don't give up. After all, it has promised Harry a home. And the snakes know of a bigger den: "Biggest one I know of. Can certainly fit a two-legger like you." Okay, there's supposed to be a 'scary' snake, and it's far away, but the snakes are determined that Harry has to go there.
    And so he does.

    A wonderful tale with great worldbuilding and well worth the read.

    Fic 1: to leap and love the fall - 1/1 - 6.685 - G
    The centaur tilted his head. “And what is a human boy doing riding a thestral into the Forest?”
    “I’m going to visit a friend. Well, a friend of a friend. Sort of. It’s a snake in the castle.”

    In which Harry meets a garden snake, discovers magic, and sets off for a better life.

    Fic 2: to be known as himself - 17/17 - 51,601 - G
    Living with the basilisk is going to take some adjusting, like learning to navigate hidden tunnels, keep himself secret, and figure out how to use magic (easier said than done). The castle and forest are full of dangers, and as Harry tries to fit into a world of elves, ghosts, and talking portraits, he'll find out if he's up to the challenge.

    Fic 3: the deepening sky - 19/19 - 45,406 - G

    Harry decides to wake Draco with some morning sex. Draco doesn't mind. - technically an outtake of I Won't Let You Fail

    Fic 3: Master of Death - 15,239 words - T
    Harry Potter is the Master of Death. This means he cannot die, as far as he is aware. Lucius Malfoy has decided to test that theory. Repeatedly.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    A very interesting Crossover/Fusion with a bunch of BtVS characters (and a few from ATS) being part of the British wizarding world: Jenny Calendar is an MoM employee and dedicated to getting Muggle technology recognized, Giles is the HoM Professor, Anya the Ancient Runes Professor (and ickle Willow starts working on making her Head of Slytherin House instead of Snape ;)) and most of the Scoobies are students, spread through the Houses - and making friends with the "Golden Trio" of course.

    The fic is well written and and both the HP and the BtVS characters are still very much the ones we love from canon even though the BtVS ones were placed into another universe. :)

    The author intends to cover at least Books 1-3. Book 1 is complete (fic 2), posting of Book 2 (fic 3) is a WIP.

    Fic 1: you can take me piece by piece - 1/1 - 7,211 words -T
    “You’re gonna let me take care of you, right?” Jenny murmured, settling her face against his coat. She felt Remus nuzzle the side of her face in response; she wasn’t sure what kind of an answer that was, but she hoped it was the right one.

    Fic 2: buffy summers, muggle-born - 9/9 - 46,649 words- G
    "A free magic boarding school. Her mom had never wanted to pay for tuition for any boarding school, magic or not, but now Buffy got to have the full experience and it was—thrilling. She was thrilled."
    (read -ch.4)

    Fic 3: jenny calendar's guide to inter-house unity - 22.03.2021: 7/? - 36,766 - G
    As Giles and Jenny attempt to collaborate on a difficult project, Buffy and the gang try to piece together the person (or thing) responsible for the Muggleborns getting petrified throughout Hogwarts.
