    I have to go with Boy Who Lived by the Santi. I have yet to find a fanfic anywhere near as good as the one Santi wrote. It's good enough to be a published novel. Sad that it got abandoned.

    The Shadow of Angmar. You can tell just how much effort was put into each chapter

    For my second choice Id go with the Vincet series by nos tres reges. Just a shame the author Rob abandoned it after book 2. If he had finished the series I doubt any other fanfic would come near.

    I don't want to count anything abandoned or WIP. I liked Sum of their Parts, Hermione Granger Demonologist, and a few other shorter ones. All the novel length ones needed a ton of editing, but Basilisk Born comes to mind as having lots of promise. A few others do too. My favorite of all fanfics is The Last Ringbearer, but it is a LOTR fic, not HP.

    I'd like to go with Intoxication as well. It's so fucked up but ridiculously well written. Best Harry Daphne ever.

    Lie I've lived deserves a mention as well.

    What a useless necro when the question was definitively answered in post #4

    I've not re-read them since the originals, but I'll go by what I remember most fondly.

    I think the fanfic with the biggest emotional stranglehold on me might be Circular Reasoning by @Swimdraconian -- who I should really show more love. I see you there updating your fic on FF.net buddy!

    Or maybe Ectomancer for another angle. What a fun, crazy world.

    I should dive back in and reread them soon to see how well it holds up, or conversely see if my tastes have been atrophied by reading one too many MTLs. D:

    The Unforgiving Minute by Voice of the Nephilim and Legend by Polyphoenix are unmatched in giving me the shivers. I have a lot of good fics I like to read, but these communicate on a different wavelength.
