"A Year Like None Other"
by AspinInTheSunlight
Link verified to ArchiveOfOurOwn.org/users/AspinInTheSunlight on 10 March 2021
Hogwarts/Alternate 6th Year/Snape Adopts Harry
Rated Ficton T 13+
Snape/Harry/Draco/No Pairings
97 Chapters (760,446 words)
Completed 25 March 2007
Added 8 Jan 2012 (archived)
     It all started with a letter from home and family. Except, Harry doesn't really have either, does he? He's about to get them. Winner: Multifaceted Best Genfic, Best Draco Fic.
     Authors Notes: This story follows Canon Books 1-5 and an alternate sixth year. HBP never happened. Instead, A Year Like No Other took place. Harry got adopted by Snape, Draco turned to the Light, and then Snape adopted him as well. The Dursleys all died except for Dudley who lost a lot of weight and found his heart with the help of a talented therapist. So, Harry's got a father and brother now, plus a cousin he can stand. Since Year Like No Other was started before HBP came out, some other things in this universe differ from canon. In this universe, Snape *is* a pureblood and his father's name was Hostilian (which tells you a lot all by itself). Dumbledore never died, but Pansy Parkinson did, and Theodore Nott went to Azkaban for murdering her. Draco is younger than Harry, but only by a few days. I'm sure there's more but that's what comes to mind. Just remember, nothing that we found out in HBP necessarily matters in this story.

"A Family Like None Other"

Link verified to ArchiveOfOurOwn.org/users/AspinInTheSunlight on 10 March 2021
NOTE: WIP
Hogwarts/Alternate 6th Year/Snape Adopts Harry/heavy levels of angst, misfortune, agony, and uncertainty
Rated Ficton T 13+
Snape/Harry/Draco/No Pairings

Added 20 June 2018 (archived)
     During his final year at Hogwarts, relationships will splinter as Harry confronts secrets long-buried and faces the greatest challenge of them all.
     This story begins shortly before Harry's seventh year at Hogwarts and assumes he has lived through the experiences of canon years 1-5. Instead of Half-Blood Prince, he then lived through the events of A Year Like None Other and A Summer Like None Other. Nothing from canon books 6 and 7 is necessarily true in this universe, though some elements from those books may be utilized. Major differences from canon: Snape in this story --is-- a pureblood; Vernon and Petunia Dursley have both died; and most notably, Snape has adopted both Harry and Draco. Minor differences include a wealth of details such as the fact that Draco's birthday falls on a different date. For more information, read the preceding stories.

     Harry's escaped from Azkaban and wants Revenge! Now this isn't your normal everyday kind of revenge, Harry is a second generation Marauder with a bone to pick with just about everyone that thinks they can just discard him like a worn out shoe.
     OMG, this is the funniest story I've ever read. You'll be rolling on the floor! This is NOT a gay story, but it's SO funny I couldn't help but suggest it.

     Harry finally defeated Voldemort, now the Death eaters want to set things right. The only way they can think of is if the boy who lived is never born. There are fifty-one chapters of this wonderful story, but most are short. And, hehe, hang on for a wild ride as Harry meets the teen version of the Marauders ... Peter, Remus, Sirius and, yes, James and Lily. There's a prequel to this story called "Web of Lies."

     Harry‘s only aim has been to create a safe and happy life for his family, but his efforts are destroyed one spring afternoon. Harry meets new friends and old enemies, old friends and new enemies, whilst trying to find a path through a changing world.
     This is a well written story. Hehe, yes there's good Snape and a little Lucious bashing. But that's to be expected in a good HP story. Be warned though, some of the descriptions are not for the faint at heart.

    Harry is bribed to be a potion-tester for Fred and George, and finds that the side effects can be very advantageous. Even though Harry hopes to use the potion on his best friend, he can’t help but be a little distracted ...
    This is an erotic story with an erotic plot with Harry having all kinds of sex with sometimes multiple partners all wrapped around a somewhat dubious plot. I enjoyed it.

     Suddenly with a higher profile after being proved right about Voldemort's return, Harry's use of Voldemort's name around Hogwarts gains popularity. It also attracts Voldemort's attention in the form of a series of attacks, and Harry soon finds that he is shouldering a burden even greater than the prophecy--the likelihood that Sirius's fate could come to his friends, who will stop at nothing to protect him.
     This is not a gay story, but the plot and writing were just too good to pass up.

     Looking after a Muggle animal should be easy compared to saving Hogwarts from Voldemort. Harry and Draco might disagree with that. Featuring Luna, Marauders, peppermints and, of course, a tall, black, badtempered horse named Simon. Could Simon really be someone? There is a lot of guessing going on, but you won't know until almost the end. Awesome writing!
     This is not a gay story, despite Harry and Draco working together.

The James Potter Series
by G. Norman Lippert
G. Norman Lippert with his son Zane
G. Norman Lippert with his son Zane
    The Harry Potter Series ends with "The Deathly Hallows" (well, the movie series ended with Deathly Hallows Part Two) with Harry and Ginny saying goodbye to their son, James Severus Potter, as he gets on the Hogwarts Express headed for his first year at the famous wizarding school. G. Norman Lippert's series of books picks up right there and follows James Potter through four books of adventure. Even JK Rowling gave him the nod while she and Warner Brothers agreed not to fight or otherwise challenge the free distribution of these books. So, sit back and enjoy the continuation of the Potter Wizarding Saga.

    
BOOK ONE

James Potter and the Elders' Crossing by G. Norman Lippert
"James Potter and the Hall of Elders' Crossing"
by G. Norman Lippert
Link to author's site on Goodreads.com verified on 10 March 2021.
Next Generation/First book in the series
Rated K for All Audiences
21 Chapters
Completed 2008
Added 14 Jan 2012 (archived)
    What’s it like to be the son of the most famous wizard of all time?
    James Potter thinks he knows, but as he begins his own adventure at Hogwarts, he discovers just how much of a challenge it really is to live up to the legend of the great Harry Potter. As if it wasn’t enough dealing with the delegates from the American wizarding school and figuring out the mysteriously polite Slytherins, James and his new friends, Ralph and Zane, begin to uncover a secret plot that could pit the Muggle and the Magical worlds against each other in all-out war.
    Now, with the help of Ted Lupin and his band of merry mischief makers (The Gremlins), James must race to stop a war that could change the world forever. His only hope is to learn the difference between being a hero and being the son of a hero.
    This is by far the closest thing to the next Harry Potter book! G. Norman Lippert has captured the essence that IS Harry Potter by continuing the story by following the adventures of his son, James Potter. READ IT!
    The story is available as a PDF download and is wonderfully illustrated. Simply awesome!
    
BOOK TWO

James Potter and the Curse of the Gatekeeper by G. Norman Lippert

    A summer of change brings James Sirius Potter back to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry with a new perspective. Confident that last year's adventures are well behind him, James prepares for the more prosaic challenges of schoolwork, trying-out for the Quidditch team, and keeping an eye on his brother Albus and cousin Rose.
    A new year brings a new adventure, however, beginning with some increasingly worrisome questions about the new headmaster, Merlinus Ambrosius, whose long trek outside of time may have attracted the attention of a horrible entity known to legend as "the Gatekeeper".
    Determined to prove Merlin's trustworthiness, James finds himself lost in a deepening web of intrigue, deception and secrets that stretches all the way back to the time of the founders.
    With the Gatekeeper looming, preparing its prophesied human host for a final reign of doom, James, Rose and Ralph forge unexpected allies in a last-ditch effort to stop it before it is too late.
    In the end, however, all hopes lead to Merlin, and James must face the very real possibility that everything he believes about the new headmaster is, in fact, a carefully constructed facade.
    This is by far the closest thing to the next Harry Potter book! G. Norman Lippert has captured the essence that IS Harry Potter by continuing the story by following the adventures of his son, James Potter. READ IT!
    BUT FIRST, read James Potter and the Elders' Crossing, the first story by G. Norman Lippert about Harry Potter's son James. I guarantee that you will enjoy both stories!
    
BOOK THREE

James Potter and the Vault of Destinies by G. Norman Lippert
"James Potter and the Vault of Destinies"
by G. Norman Lippert
Link to author's site on Goodreads.com verified on 10 March 2021.
Next Generation/Third book in the series
Rated K for All Audiences

Completed Jan 2010
Added 14 Jan 2012 (archived)
    This Changes Everything...
    It is a year of change and upheaval for the entire Potter family. Harry, as head Auror, has been sent to the United States to help investigate a nefarious underground group whose proclaimed goals are to unite the Muggle and magical world by any means necessary. Unwilling to be separated for the lengthy trip, Ginny insists that family accompany Harry, launching a year long journey to the United States and the American wizarding school of Alma Aleron.
    Determined to avoid adventure for the term, James finds himself unwittingly pulled into an international incident involving Petra Morganstern, who has accompanied the family to the states along with her younger Muggle step-sister Izabella. Apparently framed for a crime she didn't commit, James, Ralph and Zane must prove Petra's innocence before she is separated from Izzy forever.
    Complicating matters, however, is the very real possibility that, despite James' growing feelings for Petra, she may indeed be guilty of the crime she has been accused of, and perhaps even worse things. Because Petra, as James slowly learns, is no ordinary witch. Her magic is mysteriously powerful, even without a wand, and headmaster Merlin himself seems wary of her.
    In the end, James must choose to confront the truth that he has been seeking, knowing that it may well shatter his perception of the girl he loves, and even the stability of the magical world at large.
    As Albus says, keep one hand on your wand and the other on your wallet.
    
BOOK FOUR

James Potter and the Morrigan Web by G. Norman Lippert

Completed Jan 2010
Added 23 February 2016 (archived)
    As James Potter returns to Hogwarts in the wake of "the Night of the Unveiling", he discovers that even in the protected center of the magical world, nothing is quite the same.
    Despite the Ministry's efforts, the Vow of Secrecy is crumbling the world over, eroding age-old safeguards and threatening magical and Muggle governments with dark magic conspiracies.
    Amidst the turmoil, a gravely suspicious new headmaster, Rechtor Grudje, institutes Draconian security measures hinting more at dictatorial control than safety.
    At the same time, an international exchange program allows students from Hogwarts, Alma Aleron, Durmstrang, Beauxbatons and a mysterious fifth school to attend each others' classes, introducing an entirely new social dynamic and potential for exploration. Along with Alma Aleron's Zane Walker, this brings a new face to Hogwarts, the infuriating yet intriguing Natasia Hendrix, who harbors her own complicated-- and far-reaching-- secrets.
    As the school year progresses, James' works is gradually overshadowed by a growing danger known as the Morrigan Web, a mythical, magical doomsday weapon which threatens to tumble the entire world, Muggle and magical alike, into the hands of the vicious Lady of the Lake.
    In the center of it all, Petra Morganstern and her sister Izzy-- the Sister Fates of the Lady of the Lake-- move quietly in the shadows, out of sight, weaving their own mysterious master plan.
