Harry is related to one or more of the Founders


I am taking "related" in the widest sense of the word, which means I will take
- the obvious ones where Harry is clearly the Heir of Gryffindor (or another Founder)
- fics where it is mentioned that Harry is related to one of the Founders even though he is not the Heir,
- fics where Harry himself is one of the Founders, either through timetravel or reincarnation,
- fics where the relationship is due to a blood-bond, marriage or adoption,
- fics where Harry is not blood-related to any of the Founders but is their magical Heir.

- The only kind of relationship I do NOT take is if it's purely sexual (without marriage).
- No badly written stories, WIPs with less than five chapters written or short abandoned WIPs. (I am willing to take abandoned stories for this list, provided they are lengthy.)

1) Harry is related to Godric Gryffindor
2) Harry is related to Salazar Slytherin, Rowena Ravenclaw or Helga Hufflepuff
3) Harry is related to more than one Founder
4) Harry is one of the Founders, by timetravel or reincarnation

When you rec stories for this list, please don't leave just a link. To put them up in this list I particularly need a summary and what Harry's relationship to the Founders is. Status (WIP, Complete, Hiatus, Abandoned or One-shot), pairings (if there are any) and Rating would help as well!!! Thanks. :-) And thank you everyone who contributed to this list.
