Title: Harry Potter and the Color of Magic
r: [livejournal.com profile] andromeda3116 
Fandom: Discworld, Harry Potter
Genre: Crossover
Length:  Short

Author's Summary:
In which Harry Potter goes to the other school for wizards.  No, not Durmstrang.  (This is a very, very bad summary.)

"There was no gruff half-giant coming to whisk him away from his abusive aunt and uncle, partly because giants and humans don't mate* and partly because Harry's parents were never killed by a rogue wizard calling himself the dark lord.  This wasn't due to a lack of rogue wizards, unimaginative names for rogue wizards, or claims of dark-lordship; mostly, it was due to the fact that Godric's Hollow was in the Ramtops, and most rogue wizards tended to hang around Ankh-Morpork..."

Ignore the author's summary.  Harry's only just been born and the fic never actually gets to him going to school.  But it is an entertaining fic.  The narrator's voice fits sort of between the two canons, but with the Discworldian sense of humor.  I wish there was more to this story though.

Welcome to my journal/rec list!  I post recs as often as time permits and sometimes I share other things that I come across too.  If you found a great fic from a rec here, I'd love to hear about it.  I'd also love to know if you've read anything you think I'd like from any of the fandoms that I have tags for in this journal.

I'd especially like to know of any podfics for fics rec'd here so I can add those to the rec posts!

Also, I have lost some fics I'd love to find again.  I'd really appreciate your help finding these:
[1] Specific short fic in Supernatural fandom (probably Sam/Gabriel) details behind the link.
[2] Does anyone have an archived copy of "The Fire before Winter" by Kryptaria?  I pulled up my old post about it to rec it on fancake and the AO3 version is gone and a google search failed to turn up any others.
