Harry Potter/Albus Dumbledore Fanfiction Masterlist

The other day, while working on the Fanlore page, I started trawling the internet for Harry/Dumbledore stuff. I expected to find, like, four fics, and I ended up finding a whole bunch -- but spread out over various sites and archives and not exactly easy to track down. Hence, this handy masterlist.

  • I'm including everything labeled Harry/Dumbledore, even if it's not overtly slashy. Pre-slash or implied slash counts if that was the author's intention
  • There must be a reasonable amount of Harry/Dumbledore in the story. Fics with ships in addition to it are fine, but if it's just mentioned in passing that doesn't cut it.

  • WIPs/incomplete fics are included if a significant amount of the story has been written. If there's only a chapter or two and no indication of Harry/Dumbledore yet in the story, it's not on this list
  • Individual chapters of stories are included if the Harry/Dumbledore is isolated to that chapter and it more or less stands on its own (e.g. drabble collections)
Please let me know if you know of any other Harry/Dumbledore fics that meet these restrictions!
Personal recommendations are marked with a [].
