Burnt Hedwig to the Rescue by Howldaloom
Summary: Summer before fourth year, Harry is locked in his room at the Dursleys', forced to live as a house elf, brutally beaten, and starved. Hedwig is tossed onto a bonfire with Harry's other belongings, but she manages to barely escape! Hedwig is badly injured, and so burnt that she can't be recognized as a snowy owl. What will she do? Where does she go for help? Can Harry be saved in time?

A response to both P&S Winter Fic Fest and the Burnt Hedwig Challenge. However, many of the challenge details have been altered. Hedwig is injured, and must seek help for Harry. One-shot. Some Chamber of Secrets details have been changed from canon.
