    Do you guys know anything that fits with the title? I'd be intrested when every canon character is a secondary character with some oc taking the lead.

    Strangers at Drakeshaugh is a great one. It's quite general in theme, and the PoV is actually one of a muggle who sees the Potters (Harry, Ginny and their children) move next door or so to speak.

    Otherwise there is another one about Harry who's lost Ginny to a Quidditch accident, and meet a waitress in a coffee, and ends up dating her. I can't remember the title for the life of me.

    There is also Vitam paramus where professional Quidditch player Harry Potter welcomes Gabrielle Delacour into his home when a tragic accident robs them of most of their family. Romance, Angst, and General theme I guess.

    Huh. Hawkin's taste is super similar to mine.

    Anyways, Sorrows' Perfectly Normal Thank You Very Much would probably fit your tastes.

    And A Long Journey home is massively AU, but technically postwar, if you're into that. (It contains very little Voldemort).

    There's also Sesc's Unatoned if you're into noir.

    Here's an oldie, but goodie. The Human Condition.

    It's a mystery/drama auror!Harry fic, released and completed pre-HBP. I remember liking it quite a bit.
