If you are looking for some of the best Dumbledore, Weasley, Granger bashing fanfiction, you are in the right place.
Harry Potter is a worldwide sensation and one of the most popular book and movie series of all time.
As with any series, the characters in Harry Potter are not perfect.
That would make a rather boring series to read.
Some characters are better than others, and some are played off as a hero when, in reality, they are the exact opposite.
Every fan of Harry Potter has their own opinions on each character, and some fans have much stronger feelings than others.
There are countless fanfiction stories out there that bash different Harry Potter characters, and this article will look at some of the best.
We will specifically be looking at the stories that are Dumbledore, Weasley, Granger bashing fanfiction stories.
Keep reading to find out more.
1. Harry Potter and the Slytherin Ideal
The first Dumbledore, Weasley, Granger bashing fanfiction that we will read today is the most popular in the genre.
It has close to 100,000 hits, and that number only grows as each additional chapter is published.
In this story, we see how one small change alters the course of Harry’s life forever.
Instead of Hagrid being the one to retrieve Harry from the Dursleys and teach him about the wizarding world, Professor Snape is tasked with this mission.
This results in Harry being sorted into Slytherin and doing everything he can to impress Snape and Draco trying to become Harry’s new best friend.
Snape must now deal with these two ambitious and powerful boys in Slytherin’s house and decide the best method for handling their hyperactivity.
This story truly demonstrates how one small moment can change everything, and it is not a story to miss out on.
2. Second Chances
Up next is a bashing fanfiction that will have you on the edge of your seat.
In this story, Voldemort kills Harry, and he wakes up at Kings Cross.
This fanfic begins with a scene we have come to know from the books and the movies, but something is immediately different.
Voldemort travels to Kings Cross with Harry.
Rather than being met by Dumbledore, the two of them stand face-to-face with Death himself, and he is not pleased.
The story that follows is powerful and dark.
There is a bit of time travel involved and a redemption arc for Tom Riddle.
If you think you know where this story is going, think again.
It is a story full of twists and turns you will not see coming.
In this Dumbledore, Weasley, Granger bashing fanfiction, the entirety of the wizarding world is turned on its head.
Following Voldemort’s defeat, Harry finds that his friends were never really his friends, and he discovers that his previous enemies may actually be allies.
Harry falls to an untimely death but is given a second chance at life.
He must decide on where this second life is going to take him.
He wants to make everyone who wronged him pay dearly, and he is ready to play by his own rules.
Nothing is holding him back now that everyone he once loved has betrayed him.
If you are looking for a story that is a bit dark and twisted, this is a great choice.
Harry becomes someone you will not recognize, and it is interesting to see where the author takes his character.
4. A Bond of Family
Up next is a bashing fanfiction that is quite different from the original series but entertaining nonetheless.
In the alternate universe of this story, Remus Lupin and Sirius Black have been raising Harry as their own.
When Harry returns to Hogwarts after the holidays, Lupin and Sirius come with him, and they join Hogwarts as the newest professors.
Of course, the two of them get into endless amounts of trouble, and Harry is entertained, albeit a bit embarrassed.
This story is full of friendship and love, and once you begin reading, you will certainly realize why it is such a popular one.
5. Toujours Pus – A Family Secret
In this bashing fanfiction, things get a bit dark.
Some content in this story may not appeal to every reader, so be sure to check out the author’s content warnings before you begin.
Harry is being forced to take a remedial potions course, though we all know that he is far too talented for a course like this.
While in this class, he unwittingly sparks a life-altering change that affects the entire wizarding world.
No longer is Harry a light in the darkness; he becomes morally grey, much to Dumbledore’s chagrin.
Without Harry willing to do all of his biddings, Dumbledore must find someone else or else force Harry to do his will.
This story features many of the characters we know to be “bad guys,” but it gives them much more nuance.
We get some insight into how their minds work, which is always interesting.
Next up is a bashing fanfiction that is still a work in progress.
There are currently 12 chapters available, but many more are still to come.
This story is a crossover with The Addams Family, which is a unique and somewhat unexpected crossover.
In this story, Harry is a female, and she is the Mistress of Death.

Not only that, but the Addams family is raising her.
Of course, humor, magic, and familial love are all very important aspects of this story, and the author has created quite an interesting universe.
This is one of the most unique stories on our list, and it is not one to miss out on.
7. The Potter Family Magic
Up next is a Dumbledore, Weasley, Granger bashing fanfiction that not only bashes those closest to Harry but also pretty much everyone in the wizarding world.
Harry has had enough of the politics and betrayal of the wizarding world.
He doesn’t care anymore about what happens or who he may hurt along the way.
While he attempts to fit in with the other students at Hogwarts, he realizes that he doesn’t really belong there and that no one will ever truly understand his feelings or what he is going through.
He decides to get away and learn the truth about his family.
Harry wants to find somewhere he truly belongs and a place he can call home, unlike Hogwarts.
This story begins just after the end of Harry’s third year at Hogwarts, and it continues throughout his teenage years.
8. The Change, for Better or for Worse
The next bashing fanfiction that we will look at is a shorter story than many of the others, but there is still plenty to enjoy.
In this story, Harry arrives at Grimmauld place just before his fifth year at Hogwarts begins.
All of his friends and loved ones are there, and Harry is eager to see them.
When he arrives, however, something is different.
Harry has changed, and not everyone is sure that this is a change for the better.
It will take some getting used to, and Harry just wants everyone to treat him as they always have.
This is a fun story with a lot of great Dumbledore bashing if you’re into that.
9. Little Star
Up next is a bashing fanfiction that largely focuses on the Malfoy family.
In this story, Harry Potter is not the boy who lived, and he is not a Potter, either.
He is part of the Malfoy family, and he has finally returned to be with them.
The only trouble, however, is that countless people wish to do him harm.
The Malfoy family does everything in their power to protect Harry, but it seems that their protections are never enough.
He is the glue that holds the family together, and they need him now more than ever.
You will enjoy this story if you are a fan of the Malfoy family in the original series.
We get great insight into each family member, which is a fascinating journey.
10. A Life Amongst Wolves
The final Dumbledore, Weasley, Granger bashing fanfiction that we will read today is a very interesting one.
In this story, Harry makes some mistakes on a camping trip and ends up face to face with Fenrir Greyback.
Greyback decides to take mercy on the young and clearly abused boy, and he adopts him and raises him as his own.
No one recognizes him when it is time for Harry to attend Hogwarts.
He is not the same boy that was lost in the woods that day.
Being raised by werewolves clearly affected young Harry, and it is something that will change his life forever.
This story has a great premise that is far from the original series and everything we know about the wizarding world.
