    Can someone post some PostHogwarts stories where Harry travels the world or does his own thing as opposed to the usual Harry/Ron/Hermine!Roomates!Aurors shit?

    There's a touch of OC-gag-inducing romance (well okay, all romance is gag-inducing), but this is one of the stories that inspired my post-Hogwarts Harry runs away story idea.
    Catch Me If U Can by epholge
    http://www.fanfiction.net/s/1224714/1/
    After the final battle of the War Against Voldemort, Harry runs away from the wizarding world. His friends are determined to get him back, not matter what the cost. What happens when he gets caught? (COMPLETE)


    WARNING: This next one is pretty fluffy with harry/ginny moments that would fit on a poster with puppies in a basket. Not awful, but very fluffy.
    Perspective by Bill Hagridsson

    After his victory over Lord Voldemort, Harry tries to gain a fresh perspective, with a trip acros the pond. COMPLETED.

    There's also quite a few "No one's heard from Harry" post-Hogwarts fics with the mysterious new professor, etc... But usually those involve discovering Hermione's green-eyed baby or Albus/Ginny is actually alive. Bleh.

    The problem with me is, I'm looking for a Harry-centric one where Voldemort is dead at the cost of Harry's social life (Ron and Hermione get together, Ginny is whoring herself, blah blah, while Harry trains hard) so after graduation, we watch as he travels the world, or becomes an Unspeakable, Spell-crafter, Wanderer learning new magic, whatever.

    Maybe becoming like a hitman? Going around the world killing Dark Wizards. That'd be cool.

    Hitwizard is like SWAT. I think there is a thread about it somewhere. I'm talking like a hired assissan.

    Hitwizard is a reference or two total in 6 HP books...
    Hitwizard is what you make it out to be.

    And he's reccing his own one chapter story, as his first and only post on the forums.

    He probably searched through all the topics, going YEARS back until found one he felt he could shoehorn his fic into.

    Fucking seriously? You necro'd a five year old thread for 1720 words? On your first post? For someone who doesn't come here anymore?

    Are you retarded?

    Yeah, the story was mediocre, the very definition of meh.

    To drag this back on topic though, any suggestions of more recent Post Hogwarts fics? Its not a genre I read very often, but over the years I've read a few outstanding ones if I recall correctly. Its a genre which seems to produce a lot of very mediocre fics, a few terrible ones, and the occasional gem.

    Hmmm, it started out ok. But rapidly descended into Harmony fluff.

    Now Let The Night Be Dark is a post war mystery story. It sadly has almost no recognition but deserves a lot more. You'll notice that writer put some real thoughts into the magical background theory. It's unique and worth a try.

    Content Teaser:

    The story is about the explosion of a magical factory for liquid time with some strange side effects. Harry is an auror and gets the job to find out what happens though you get the impression sooner or later that nobody wants him finding out what happened. It's about really strange experiments in the past Dumbledore and Grindlewald were interested in, Unspeakable projects, Azkaban and Dementors.
