HP Fic Rec: Living with Danger

Fandom: Harry Potter

Title: Living with Danger

Author: whydoyouneedtoknow

Rating: T (PG-13)

Category: Drama, Humor

Pairing: Remus/OC, Sirius/OC

Summary: AU. Her landlady married a dog and had his baby. Her little sister is far too smart. She helped to steal two little boys, one with a famous scar, and her husband is a werewolf. Her name is Danger. This is her story.


Story Status: Complete. First sequel complete; second sequel in progress. Multiple one-shots.

Shannon's Thoughts: I was hesitant to read this fic at first. Everyone knows by know how much I dislike original characters in fanfiction. And one nicknamed Danger? Who's the sister of Hermione Granger? How could it possibly be any good?

With a lot of hard work, character development, and stunning plot by the author. "Living with Danger" is a fabulous alternate universe about the children of the Harry Potter universe and their guardians. They do act like children, with the squabbling that's to be expected, but they also love each other very much.

There's a lot of use of prophecy in this fic. It could have gotten hokey after a while, but the author's clever use of language (and the way she kept a lot of it unclear until it had happened) made it work.

I haven't read the sequels to this fic yet, but I fully expect to enjoy them as much as I did this fic.

Final judgement: 10/10.
