Do you know any fics with slytherin!harry. Preferably in the long range?

I have a few! I am very picky about my Slytherin!Harry, because I don’t like him to be OOC (sooo no Harry supporting Voldemort or anything like that) and I find that a lot of Slytherin!Harry fics make him into an entirely new character. I thought the following ones were very well done though!

Slytherin!Harry Recs

Leo Inter Serpentes by Aeternum (658K combined so far)- Just one conversation between two eleven year old boys goes slightly differently, and the world changes. Just how much will be different with Harry being sorted into Slytherin, and how much will stay the same?
My favorite Slytherin!Harry fic! It’s a canon re-write starting from book one, but enough things change that it stayed exciting throughout! Also Harry has a pet snake! And Snape becomes his mentor!! ALL THE GOOD THINGS!!! You should be warned that it’s a WIP. But the author is currently actively posting the 6th book, and I have hope it won’t be abandoned :)

Written on the Heart by who_la_hoop (114K)- Harry doesn’t mind that so many Slytherins from his year have returned to finish their NEWTs, really he doesn’t. It’s just – do they have to be so friendly? He’s not prejudiced, really he’s not. It’s just – they’ve got to be up to something, right? Unnerved by the attention he’s attracting from everyone – the Slytherins are the least of it, to be fair – and struggling with a raft of changes to Hogwarts itself, Harry wishes he could be happy that one constant remains: Draco Malfoy really fucking hates him. When he’s hit by an illegal love-spell though, Harry finds he has more to worry about than whether or not Blaise Zabini actually wants to be his friend. For if everyone affected has been blessed – or cursed, by the look on Malfoy’s face – with a magical tattoo revealing the name of their soulmate, what does it mean that Harry’s skin remains completely bare?
kfhdsjrg3hi SOUL MARKS!!! c;mbxneiu EIGHTH YEAR!!! rewuy,obsk AMAZING AUTHOR!!! Harry is forced to move to Slytherin!!!! Need I say more? Seriously, this fic is amazing. Harry doesn’t act super Slytherin, but he has to live there, so it counts, right?!

Malfoy Flavor by Vorabiza (199K)- Harry’s ready to banish the Golden Boy image and take charge of his life. Unfortunately for him, or fortunately, there are surprises in store for him.
Okay so this one might be a tiiiiiiiny bit ooc, but I LOVE VORABIZA’S STUFF and it’s so fun to read that in this case I don’t even care. Harry disguises himself as Dustin Snape (okay I know I also had to get over the fact that this is a horrible name) and “transfers” into Hogwarts and is a total badass and just READ IT.

Other People’s Choices by Lomonaaeren (82.5K so far)- AU. The Sorting Hat doesn’t just let the Sword go when it falls on Harry’s head in the Chamber, but also Sorts him again, this time into Slytherin. Harry is furious and terrified, and the adults aren’t helping much.
WIP. And I haven’t read it yet!!! But it looks amazing and Lomon is always amazing, so I am very excited for it to be finished. Also, if you are just looking for a Slytherin-esque (adult) Harry or Dark!Harry or Grey!Harry, she has written a ton of that in other completed fics!

Progressive Displacement by GatewayGirl (21K)- Harry didn’t mean the wish that way. From his point of view, it hadn’t even worked.
Another one I haven’t read! I just discovered it right this very moment while poking around to make this list, but it looks really good! I think Harry wakes up in several alternate realities, and he’s a different Slytherin!Harry each time. All I know for sure is that it starts with Harry taking Draco from Azkaban, and I love that <3

Cunning and Ambition by MinaAndChao (372K)- “The weak in courage is the strong in cunning” -William Blake. One small gesture and one simple sentence change lives, and through it, history. A Slytherin!Harry AU. Abandoned in the sixth book.
This series is a pretty straight-forward Slytherin!Harry re-write, and it stays pretty similar to canon. It was abandoned in Book Six.


Also someday (hopefully!!) you will be able to read my WIP, Test of Time! Harry and Draco both go back in time to just before first year, and Harry ends up being sorted Slytherin this time around. There will be Slytherin politics and Draco teaching Harry how to be more Slytherin (among many other things; this is just a side-plot), and it will diverge almost entirely from canon :D

Slytherins are not Nazis in the sense that “Hydra is Nazis” or “Death Eaters are allegorical Nazis” but Slytherins have been, CANONICALLY, complicit in and/or actively encouraging racism and the activities of extremists since the founding of the House

i literally do not understand how people can rightfully talk at length about how Draco Malfoy and Severus Snape are awful and then turn around and pretend that the process that MOLDED them in to the type of people that would hurl slurs around and feel entitled to people/things because of their blood didn’t start with their family and CONTINUE WITH BEING IN A HOUSE THAT SPEWS OUT RACIST DOGMAS AT FIVE KNUTS APIECE

i don’t give a fuck if out of universe you want to dissociate Slytherins from their canon baggage so you can sort your faves or whatever but “Slytherins are BULLIED AT HOGWARTS” “PROTECT SLYTHERINS” “SLYTHERINS ARE OPPRESSED IN CANON FOR BEING AMBITIOUS” lmao fuck all the way off

I think is time for us to talk about Dean and Cas in the impala, just miles and miles of road ahead of them, windows down and their voices rising up over the sound of the wind, they are singing to one of Dean’s tapes. Dean smiles all the way, because Cas knows all the lyrics of his favourite songs perfectly, even better than Dean.

Sickfic Mini Scenes
  • Character A is sick and Character B has been taking care of them for a few days. At some point after A is feeling a little better (but still obviously unwell), B comes home and is super stressed. A insists on giving them a back rub and doing what they can to help B feel better.

  • Character A is sick in bed and is using so many tissues they’re not even aiming for the trash next to them. Character B comes in, sees the pile of used tissues, holds it up. “You didn’t even get any in the basket!”

  • Character A has a cold and is washing fruits and vegetables when suddenly they have to sneeze. They turn away, only to find they’ve sneezed in the direction of what they’ve already washed. They put the sneezed-on food in a container with a note that says Character B isn’t allowed to eat it.

  • Character A tells Character B that they don’t feel well so many times that B threatens to make a drinking game out of it.

  • Character A wakes up with a terrible headache, but goes about their day as normal, thinking that if they just take some painkillers, it’ll go away. It doesn’t, and the next day they find out why - they were getting sick the whole time.

  • Character A wakes in the early hours of the morning to Character B sneezing from the bathroom. 

  • Character A sneezes, only to have Character B enter the room less than a minute later. B asks, concerned, if they’re okay because “you look flushed.” A says they’re fine, “I just sneezed.”

Person: says something awful and homophobic discriminating against people who are gay/bi.

Same person a moment later claiming people are bullying them because those people called them a homophobe:

Favorite solangelo moment(s)? Or just some of your favorite Nico or Will moments?

You pose a good question my friend.

There aren’t many moments to choose from unfortunately… I think I’m going to go with in Blood Of Olympus when Nico shadow-travels in and Will sees him and they banter - basically their first interaction.

Will talks to him like they’re friends and thinks Nico is dumb for thinking he has no friends AND starts all this off by saying I delivered a satyr baby hold my hand. Like, what Will, why is that important at this very moment. Nico through all this thinks about his admiration for Will when he was a medic in The Last Olympian and also argues with Will (as in Will also argues back which is unheard of towards Nico Di Angelo).

I just really love stuff that leads up to them getting together. All the couple stuff is cute and I love it but the angst and pining and flirting and all that goodness that comes before being in the relationship just MMM love it.

Thanks! Ask me more stuff!!

royal!AU tag

Back when she’d been in the Corps, struggling to survive, Lightning had never really given much thought to history or relations with other kingdoms. Not only was that the old royal family’s business to worry about, but it was Serah’s department as a future teacher.

Now, Lightning wished that she could take a slice of that knowledge, just on the off chance it would get Sazh off her back.

“Seriously, have you even looked at those documents I’ve been givin’ you? At all? Even just a stern glance?”

“I’ve been busy,” Lightning muttered, which wasn’t too far from the truth - she’d just been busy avoiding any thought of diplomatic relations at her introduction ball. She hadn’t been the crown princess of the kingdom of Eden for too long and had mostly avoided the public eye. This ball would be her first real moment in the spotlight.

Which was why she was busy being terrified.

( Kandreil fic for @knox-moreau‘s contest! set post-canon, all schmoop. also available on ao3. )

( also please check out the sweet turn out for this contest. great ship fics galore. )

The first time Kevin kissed Neil was after Neil told Kevin that their performance in the Spring Championships upped their national ranking from the worst Class I team to the fourth best. Kevin dropped his gym bag, grabbed Neil by the shoulders, and reeled him in for a cruising, albeit closed-lip, kiss.

It was a tinsy bit shocking.

Though a gesture that would have sent a fourteen year old him stumbling in delight, now that he knew what Kevin Day was really like off a filmed stage, it made him question Kevin’s health. Once Kevin leaned away - not smiling in a soft, happy way, but grinning, like in victory, like in delight, like a crocodile at an unaware gazelle’s approach -, Neil bluntly asked, “Are you ill?”

Kevin did not take that well.

Solitary Effort (sickfic, flu)

Notes: Guys this is one of my favorites. I’m kind of wading through hundreds of pages of GingerSnap fic to see what’s worthy of posting and I’m really excited to share this one. In which Liam is miserable and basically does all the work on a “group” project.
(This one was also born of a prompt, but I have no idea where to find the list…I wrote it months ago, so…)


Liam had known from the beginning that he would be doing the group project singlehandedly. His other three groupmates had saddled him with the largest portion of the research for their Anthropology class, and at some point along the way, he’d gotten stuck with all of it when no one else showed up with their own.

Ordinarily this would have been little more than an inconvenience. After all, he wanted the project done right, and the only way to ensure that was to do it himself. What he had not counted on was coming down with flu the week before the presentation.

Oh! That reminds me! Again, forgive me for discovering things you guys probably already knew 2 years ago because I am the slowest gamer ever but discovering things for myself is how I like playing because it makes me super happy! but;

I was really happy to find out that if you undecorate Gyftrot until you can show mercy, you can hold off showing mercy for a turn to give him a present that he’ll accept.

Happy National Coming Out Day everyone! I’m so grateful for all the people who have supported me and made it possible for me to come out 😁

motherly (ˈmʌðəlɪ): adj 1. of or resembling a mother, esp in warmth, or protectiveness

Katara totally felt motherly toward Aang. Like she feels motherly towards anybody for whom she has even just a little bit of affection, but especially Aang.

It’s a mix of “I’m so proud of you omg you’ve grown up soo much” and “fuck what are these feelings this kiss was good i’m so attracted to you but you’re off to maybe die this is confusing”.

I bet she still felt motherly toward him when they were married with children. Heck, I bet she still felt this way on his deathbed (and beyond).

It’s okay because, yk, she’s not his actual mother and he doesn’t see her as such, they’re not related, she never infantilizes him (quite the opposite) and there is no power imbalance between them: their relationship is based on a friendship between equals and huge amounts of mutual respect (respect for each other as people and functioning adults, for each other’s identity, abilities, values and decisions - even when they don’t particularly agree with each other). There’s only two years between them - truly insignificant in the long run, barely matters at the end of the show (like they get along with each other better than with anybody else).

So I don’t see how it’s a problem? Aang is too young in the show for me to seriously ship him, but that’s on me, and I don’t think Kataang is problematic because of Katara’s motherliness. It’s actually one of the things I like most about older!Kataang - this inversion on classical gender roles: the girl is the protector, the one providing the most emotional support.

And actually, I think it’s thematically significant:

Idk, if Katara’s love for Aang is supposed to represent the Air Nomads love for him that hasn’t left this world, it feels right that it has this fiercely protective, proud, and warm quality that makes it feel so motherly.

you didn’t think he’d be this soft
