In Harry Potter fanfic, "Raising Harry" is shorthand for stories (predominantly Remus/Sirius slash, though "Everybody Lives" AUs in which James/Lily survive and raise Harry also exist), in which Harry doesn't go to live with the Dursleys and instead go to Sirius and Remus, or he later moves in with Sirius and Remus.

Characteristics:

  • Retrieving Harry from the Dursleys
  • Scenarios in which Sirius doesn't go after Peter and thus doesn't go to Azkaban
  • What If scenarios that ask serious questions about the wider Wizarding World
