Oh, you're gonna hate me for this one. Kinda-sorta-Harry/Hermione, although very very
slow-moving. At this point, really not relevant. Very much out-of-character Harry, Draco, Quirrell, and more. Oh, and it's a Work-In-Progress.
The author's handle is Less Wrong, and the story is Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality
. Very simple premise, really: Petunia didn't marry Vernon Dursley; she married a university professor. They adopted Harry, and the lad has been heavily
trained in science and rational thinking.
Welcome to the Wizarding World, Harry.
The author has an entire wiki devoted to Rationality
, help me out here). The story has generated lots of fan art
(and some fan fiction, at the same page). And it has some of the best
lines and most charming
scenes and loudest
laughs and and and.
It is not necessarily the best fanfic I've ever read -- I think that's still Magic Never Dies
by Lynney -- but it's absolutely in the top five. Seriously, the first chapter's short -- give it a try. There is nothing else like it.
Any great fan stuff you want to share? Art, music, fic, link 'em up.
