    Honestly im surprised that this genre doesn't have more fics, at least that ive been able to find.

    Ive read Champion by octavius owl, a shame it seems to be abandoned. Little Seer is interesting but not really my taste. Consuming Shadows is also pretty good and is still being updated so there is that. But i can't seem to find any more.

    Given that it's sitting at 1.25 million words, I really hope it's complete.

    It's not. Hasn't been updated in several years.

    Year seven is only a few chapters in. It's one of the most tragic abandonments in the fandom.

    On topic, there are surprisingly few fics with this premise. I'm trying to wrack my brains, but I can't think of too many.

    The Train to Nowhere is an AU where Voldemort won and blood purity is the norm. It's Harry/Tom slash. Haven't read it, but the writing looks decent.

    Vengeance is Beautiful - Voldemort kills Harry and James, Lily sets out to avenge them. Rather average, from what I remember.

    The Glory - Draco-centric. This one has an unusual writing style and fairly interesting AU elements.

    Could you link Little Seers and Consuming Shadows? Haven't heard of either.

    Little Seer is complete, or it's listed as complete anyway
    Consuming shadows gets regular updates, there is slash in it though

    Why would you do that when you haven't updated it in 2 years?

    He said he was looking for fics in the genre? Maybe I'm misreading something here, but nothing in the OP indicated regular updates were a requirement.

    I think that is implied more often than not.

    I disagree. The first one OP mentions is abandoned. In a fandom as old as this, most good fics are completed/abandoned years ago. When I ask, I expect them to be.

    /was going to link one, turned out to be The Magnate.

    you are correct i didn't specify. I would prefer completed or regularly/semiregularly updated stories

    finished the magnate, it was good, wish you'd finish it. just like i wish the Champion would be updated and finished.---part of the reason id rather not get abandoned fic suggestions. when they are good i end up with a story i really want to read the ending to and never will, its a huge let down in my opinion.
