Why This Must Be Read: This fic is a long one but a good one. Set after Harry’s fifth year, it sees the Boy Who Lived inadvertently time-displaced to his parents’ Hogwarts, with all of the complications and complexities that could possibly entail. The story smart and engaging throughout its length…and also features Harry’s Douglas-Adams-esque relationship to certain days of the week, which I appreciate.

Why This Must Be Read: If you come out of this not believing all twenty facts as canon—from Percy’s relationship with his siblings to his careful deliberation when it comes to the opposite sex—please at least enjoy #3.

Why This Must Be Read: I first read this fic around the time it was published (in 2011), and it’s continued to haunt me since. There’s nothing to smile about in this exploration of what follows when Harry and Ginny’s daughter is revealed to be a Squib, but author never shies away from the brutal truths and isolationism of the wizarding world, nor the toll it takes on the people closest to Lily.
