So, on my vacation week I've found myself reading other peoples fanfics instead of working on my own. I've also found several that are worth recommending to others, and yes I know I have special posts all ready in my LJ for this, but I'm feeling lazy.

All those this time around are rather humorus fanfics, one of them actually took me so long to read because there was usually something in every chapter that had me laughing so hard I cried. Of course, since humor is subjective you might not find it near as funny as I did.

A Black Comedy by nonjon
R (complete) het
Summary: Two years after defeating Voldemort, Harry falls into an alternate dimension with his godfather. Together, they embark on a new life filled with drunken debauchery, thievery, and generally antagonizing all their old family, friends, and enemies.
Chapters 31
(Yes, this is the one I found extremely funny.
PS - Oops, when I originally linked this one for some reason it ended up linked to the second chapter instead of the first. Sorry, fixed now!)

Oh God Not Again by Sarah1281
PG (complete) gen
Summary: So maybe everything didn't work out perfectly for Harry. Still, most of his friends survived, he'd gotten married, and was about to become a father. If only he'd have stayed away from the Veil, he wouldn't have had to go back and do everything AGAIN.
Chapters 50

Word of warning about both of the above fics, while they aren't Harry/Ginny, they do skirt the very edge of Harry/Ginny. In one Harry is haunted by the ghost of Ginny, who's still madly in love with him, and the other is a fic where Harry was married to Ginny before going back in time, and while they don't get together (or back together) in the fic itself Harry is still written as caring very much about Ginny. So, if you can't stand even a remote hint of H/G then these fics probably aren't for you, but if it helps I really hate Harry/Ginny as much as anyone, and I still really loved the above fanfics, especially A Black Comedy.

Anyway, another fanfic I found very funny is:

Harry Potter and the Marriage Contracts by Clell65619
R (complete) het
Summary: The War is Over, Harry has won. But at what cost? At odds with Dumbledore, estranged from the Weasleys, betrayed by Lupin, Harry tries to carry on for his 7th year. Harry/Daphne. There will be Humor, there will be Romance, also Drama and Angst.
Chapters 14
(Harry and Neville kick ass and torment Dumbledore... And there's something about rescuing a fair lady, but mostly I loved this one for the creative way Dumbledore is tormented.)


The author has another posted version of the above fanfic that claims to cut down on Weasley bashing, but I haven't read this version I'm only posting it here so maybe I will remember to read it one day, meaning that while the author thinks this is the better version I can neither agree nor disagree.
The Marriage Contracts Redux by Clell65619
R (complete) het
Summary: A rewrite of 'Harry Potter and the Marriage Contracts' done to improve some of the story elements, cut down on the Weasley bashing, and generally make a bit more sense. The changes are minor, but I believe make for a better story.
Chapters 5


So, anyway that's what I've been doing instead of making entries on my LJ or working on my own fanfic, at least after real life let me come back to the internets. What's interesting about this is that it would appear that writing/typing my little Harry Potter rant was all that I needed to start braving the world wide web of Harry Potter fandom (or at least fanfic) again.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Hey! nice to see you again. :)

*makes her post on TerranBBS* I've opened a happy b-day thread there. :P ;)
*grins* I really meant to check on Terran right after my birthday, but then I got distracted by real life.

Anyway, I have now replied over there, but mostly just to complain about real life issues. *sigh*
*big comfy hugs*
