I've scanned the first 15 or so pages of threads in this subforum, and haven't found anything on these topics. I figure that going beyond that might be worthwhile, but there may perhaps be new stories since...oh, 2013, and as such it might be worth starting a new thread. I was wondering if someone would be willing to recommend some good stories involving whatever is going on in the ministry's basement. I don't particularly care if Harry is an unspeakable, a drooling idiot, or a magnificent deity: I just want to read fun stories about magical research and inventions. I don't particularly mind crossovers, but if the word "harem" or "godlike" appears in the summary, I'd like it if the story wasn't added to whatever pile of recommendations I happen to receive.
