Win a Date with Ginny Weasley by cwarbeck starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 377]
** Winner of the 2010 Annual Dumbledore's Silver Trinket Award for Best Comedy **
‘Win a date with Ginny Weasley!’ the advert in Quidditch Illustrated magazine announced in big, bold letters that were impossible to ignore. It was all a bit ridiculous, in Harry’s opinion, but after a frustrating year spent trying (and failing) to work up enough nerve to tell Ginny he wanted her back, perhaps this was the opportunity he had been waiting for. Now all he needed to do was actually win the damn thing!

Cat & Mouse by alzzu starstarstarstarhalf-star [Reviews - 290]
The ringing of a doorbell in the middle of the night awakes Harry Potter from both sleep and ignorance: an ex-girlfriend needs his help with what at first seems the most interesting case in his career as an Auror but is soon revealed to be a brutal game of cat and mouse where the stakes are rapidly rising to alarming heights.

It quickly becomes painfully clear to Harry that whether he likes it or not, he’s a part of the game, and he has to end it before someone gets seriously hurt. The only problem is Ginny Weasley, whose presence is very likely to drive him insane before the case is closed. The warnings are for later chapters.

For some Auror training has begun; their lives are centred round London, and the Ministry of Magic. For others, there is the inevitable return to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry; their lives are centred around schooling in Scotland. Do these parted pairings, these divided duos, have different destinations and divergent destinies? When, where, and how can these separated souls meet? Holidays, Hogsmeade and Quidditch.

The battle is over, there is life to be lived, peace to be enjoyed and trouble following close at their heels.

To Love a Child by Fire_kei starstarstarstarhalf-star [Reviews - 128]
Harry Potter looked up at what was now his most favorite, and the most intimidating building in the world, the Burrow. Since the last time he had visited the structure, nearly three years prior, his life had changed in more ways than he could have possibly imagined. Harry had always known, and had been told numerous times, by multiple sources, that the Weasleys thought of him as one of their own. Harry now, after eleven years, understood what that entailed, and why.
