    So, I am working on compiling a list and would like to know everyone's top 5 fanfics over 250K words. Also, want to see if there is anything good left to read. (Ever notice how when you first entered the fandom you were overwhelmed but now you have to look so hard to find something worth reading).

    Anway, the rules are as follow:

    -Greater than(or equal to) 250k words
    -NOT slash

    Once again, please list your TOP 5

    Remember what I said in your last thread? The thread that was similar to this one? In case you forgot, I said...

    Oh, and since you're asking for recs... give us yours. What are the best stories you've read that meet all or most of your criteria?

    It's one thing if you're looking for a specific fic to not recommend something, but these generic lazy ass threads that you're using to avoid looking through the library yourself? Stop it unless you contribute.

    All right I am sorry. I just find that it is better to get recommendations by asking people instead of looking through the library.

    I am searching for a story in a forum called story search.

    Not much wrong with that.

    You've presumably read the common answers to this question (TLIL, Black Comedy, Denarian Trilogy, etc.) so here are my top 3 less known fics. Like you, I love everything absurdly long (250k+) and complete if at all possible.

    1. The Life and Times by Jewels5 (Abandoned probably) - 693k
    https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5200789/1/The-Life-and-Times

    2. The Snape Chronicles by Rannaro (Complete) - 647k
    https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7937889/1/A-Difference-in-the-Family-The-Snape-Chronicles

    3. Blindness by AngelaStarCat (WIP) - 236k, included because it'll be 250k in the next update probably.
    https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10937871/1/Blindness

    There's also Kurinoone's edgelord Voldemort raised Harry trilogy, which was a very guilty pleasure, and the Sacrifices arc which I read a long time ago and may have actually been rubbish - bu I can't remember for sure. Either way it was enjoyable at the time, so check that out. I'm currently reading A Marauder's Plan (893k Complete), but I wouldn't recommend it thusfar unless you have a lot of time to waste.

    good long fics

    Harry Crow: https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8186071/1/Harry-Crow (ffn)
    What will happen when a goblin-raised Harry arrives at Hogwarts. A Harry who has received training, already knows the prophecy and has no scar. With the backing of the goblin nation and Hogwarts herself. Complete.

    Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality: http://www.hpmor.com/ (own site)
    Harry is highly inquisitive and intelligent as Petunia marries a scientist instead of Vernon. A classic in the fanfic world

    Necro technically on topic, but I have a moral objection to labeling either of those fics 'good'. Shit, I'll even give you MOR, but Harry Crow?

    Since I am not big on favouriting stories, only story that fits both requirements and also is in my favourites on ff.net is Harry Potter and the Turning of the Sun, so it is also automatically my number 1. There are also several fics that almost fit, but narrowly don't. Never mind those. I don't read stories that long very often. I will edit this post if I think of any other story.

    Story being good wasn't one of OP's rules. Also, you didn't list your TOP 5.
