One-shot. Flowerpot. AU-no horcruxes, Pettigrew captured at the end of 3rd year.
My Thoughts: Wow, Edelweiss might be the most heart-warming story on this list! It’s cowritten by the supremely talented authors Saliient91 and Taliesin19, and it’s some of the best Harry/Fleur content out there. It feels like I say this a lot, but the best thing about this story is the characterization. Fleur, in particular, has such an interesting and fun personality that she is always an absolute joy to read. Harry is also characterized extremely well, although he’s written in a fairly similar way to his canon self, so it’s less interesting, I suppose. The story is also fairly unique, and it’s fleshed out fairly well. This also might be the best version of Quidditch Player Harry that I’ve ever seen in a fanfic. This story is an absolute delight, and it’s a perfect way to spend a rainy afternoon if you want something to smile about.
