    At least they tried, I suppose. That's more than most authors do. The fic is actually OK at the beginning. It was ages ago that I actually read it and I can't remember if it did descend into full on bashing territory. Of course there's no real story and things get really weird later on.

    Potter attraction.

    It's a sequel(kinda) to the Chunin exam days and mentions immortality and time loops, sooo maybe good for you.

    For the love of god, please tell me you're not referring to the abomination known as Partially Kissed Hero?

    I believe he's referring to this, actually.

    My favorite oneshot of all time. It's downright chilling.

    I loved Eternal Return, I've read it before but it's enthralling to read again. HP and the Temporal Beacon was something I read earlier too, but I gave up after a few chapters. I couldn't get sold on the Harem in The Potter Attraction. (Or the Naruto bits either, but that was less of a concern).

    I really like Ground Hog Day by Rorschach. It's a oneshot, in his typical style, but it works quite well here.

    I also just found this one but didn't read it yet:

    If that one isn't in the library it probably could be. 4/5 from me.

    What the hell is this? The writing is decent. I just keep finding myself going WTF, no, seriously? Every. Single. Chapter.

    Essentially the premise is that Harry is behind a lot of the important things in history. Because Voldemort's spell sent baby!Harry back in time about 150,000 years. He was the first to tame a wolf, which he named Dog. Elves are his progeny. He taught crop farming to the people around the Nile. He was Jesus. He fed Romulus and Remus milk from one of his wolves. He was Merlin. ...then, as happened with Merlin, Nimue traps him for a very long time.

    AND THEN SUDDENLY! (spoiler below)
    X-men?! We have several reasonably long chapters in which we watch as Harry shapes history, then suddenly he's Wolverine and doesn't remember the bulk of it. Also SHIELD was in there somewhere.
    Weird mood/setting/everything whiplash. And not in a good way, at least not yet. But I stopped reading to review once I got to that point. Might go skim some more to see what crazyness happens next.

    Yeah, Voldemort's last spell seemed to forget it was a Harry Potter fic somewhere along the line. Sisyphus is a great story, especially with the
    Fate worse than death/Downer ending, which is the thing that hooked me.

    That was indeed a weird as fuck fic. The whole wolverine thing just came out of nowhere...

    In Sisyphus it seems like the author is looking for reasons to kill Harry off. Some of them are plain ridiculous

    He starts from his reasonably competent canon self and becomes more and more reckless and incompetent with each life he lives.

    Hmm there is a fic in this ganre I'm thinking of, but It hasn't been mentioned in the thread so far.

    It's basically Harry trapped in virtual reality, it's handwaved with a gem or something similar, and Hermione is trying to create the perfect life for him. One of the resets was Magic not existing. It's a rather sappy Harmionian fic, so not very good in general, but it's going to drive me nuts until I remember.


    EDIT: Found it. That Scryer is real nifty. It's Sanctuary by DigiFruit
