Is there a WBWL or Non!BWL fic where Harry isn't abused?

    Basically what the title says. I would prefer for Lily and James to be alive and for Harry to be a twin. Don't say "Harry Potter and the Boy Who Lived" because I already read that fanfic.

    Have you tried "Harry Potter and the Boy Who Lived"?

    Can’t think of any off the top of my head.

    The closest approximation would be Harry Potter and the Prince of Slytherin (https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11191235/1/Harry-Potter-and-the-Prince-of-Slytherin), which features Harry as a twin, James and Lily alive and well, and, with a notable exception I shan’t include for major spoilers, relatively little on-screen abuse, if any. It’s been a while since I’ve last laid eyes on the early chapters, so I can’t say with absolute certainty what happened before Harry got his Hogwarts letter.

    All of that being said, I think this thread would belong in the Story Search section rather than General Discussion?

    Yeah, but what about Harry Potter and the Boy Who Lived?

    You could try Fraterculus, but there's a lot of shit that I disagree with in that fic. But it does do the brother trope without having Lily and James turn into criminals for child negligence.

    Negligentia might work, although Harry does get ignored a lot. But there wasn't abuse? Although I suppose one could argue mental abuse through not paying attention to Harry.
