OC-centric Fic Recs  
Because I like them AND YOU CAN'T STOP ME.  Will be updated every so often as I trawl through my bookmarks lists for particular fandoms.

Harry Potter
Family Therapy and Losers Like Us by gemmadw (latter unfinished)
Before there was Hogwarts for Harry, there was the Dursley family with two children, one of whom had no friends, hobbies, or even much of a life. Thanks to the generosity of the British Public Health system, the family was bound to be referred for therapy...

A Dork's Diary by Sukie (unfinshed?)
A dazzling satire of modern human relations among young magic people? An ironic insight into life with the impending danger of Lord
Voldemort? Or the self-centred moaning of a neurotic, single sixteen-year-old?

Meet Keira Matthews: Ravenclaw sixth year. Lord Voldemort? Nothing! Keira has bigger problems; problems like all the other Ravenclaw girls being smarter and/or prettier than she is, Elodie "Smellodie" Rivers still going out with Justin Finch-Fletchley (claw claw) and Terry Boot being the most irritating bloke on the planet. Add on failing subjects, undone essays and many, many dodgy charms and...well, you get the idea.

So You're the Daughter of a Death Eater by bribitribbit
Eris Nott has always idolised her older brother and father. That is, until she gets sorted into Hufflepuff instead of Slytherin, as she'd hoped, and finds out that her father is a Death Eater. That's when everything begins to fall apart: Her housemates turn their backs on her; her brother thinks she's a traitor; even the President of the Gobstones Club stops letting her play in matches. As long as she's got her journal, however, and her trusty (pregnant) cat, everything will be all right.  She hopes.  (Pre TDH)

Distractions, Discussions, Discoveries, and Disavowals by Elsha
Theodore Nott would like to forget a future he doesn't want - and music has always provided a distraction. Anne Fairleigh just wants the chance to practice her flute in peace. But a chance friendship between pureblood Slytherin and Muggle-born Hufflepuff soon raises the very questions Theodore has been avoiding and Anne never thought to ask. (Pre HBP)
