    Your username would be an appropriate response here. This request is an absolute joke.

    Kidding! But in all seriousness, there aren't any good fanfics like this out there. Any fanfic that features a weapon!Harry is typically one that's a vehicle for abusive Dursleys, super!Harry, stupid wizards and a host of other overused, tired cliches.

    I saw a single one that was library worthy, problem is it was abandoned before it could get to the interesting (and risky, often poorly-done) part. Also, the Dursleys were not part of the picture, since Harry's parents weren't dead until the ministry decided to take him.

    Well, colour me impressed. I've personally never encountered a well done fanfic that fits your specifications (and by well done I mean 4/5 stars at least).

    Good on you that you managed to find one. Sad that it was abandoned, though. Got a link?

    James Spookies' What We're Fighting For seems to fit the bill. It's got decent enough writing, if a bit angsty, but it's a fairly decent, well rounded story. From what I remember. It's been about three years. On the upside it's completed.

    Since it's fairly popular you might have come across it before.

    You might like Learning to Breathe. It's been about seven years since it was finished, so my memory is a little shaky, but I think it might be similar to what you are looking for.

    The Stranger In An Unholy Land might fit the bill here.

    Kurinoone Darkness Within is the opposite of what you're looking for: Harry is raised as a Weapon by Voldemort.

    All of those fanfictions are second rate, I'm sorry it doesn't satisfy me at all. (I read all of those.)

    It would certainly help if you had an example that matched your specifications.

    Hogwarts Battle School from Kwan Li is the only one I can remember, but it has been abandoned.

    Esama (I think was the author name) had Harry raised as a weapon, it covers after Harry won and has no further use is thrown aside.
