I think I can sum up what I prefer very easily: I want Harry to succeed.
Sounds simple doesn't it? Well, its amazing how there are so many stories where Harry comes across as some whiny, weak wimp (lots of W's there!) that lets everyone run all over him. Lately, it's gotten so bad that Harry finally gets enough courage to tell a girl that he likes her just long enough for her to tell him no... then he spends the entire story complaining about her.
Grow some balls, man!
So... this will be for some of my darker pursuits. A Dark Harry that refuses to be manipulated, that takes what he wants, and damned be the consequences!
