Snape/Hermione fanfic recommendations.  
A little while ago, vampiresetsuna requested that I gave her some Snape/Hermione fanfiction recommendations, and here they are. It's a long list of recommendations, which I have taken from the Snape/Hermione threads at White Flag; I compiled all the recs that I and my other fellow SS/HG 'shippers at the board had given over time.

So here are the fanfic recs, in particular order. When a fanfic is still a WIP (Work In Progress), a warning is given in the form of italicising the title of the fanfic in question.

I think I can safely say that the fanfiction you see listed here is among the best you can find on the Internet. Update February 16th, 2012: At the request of many, I am hereby adding the many fanfic recommendations that people have given in the comments (to this entry) in the last 7 years. As I have not read many of the recommendations yet, I am not adding them to the main list yet and instead these will have their own little section for the time being. Click on the LJ-cut below in order to view all of the recommendations. Thank you very much to everyone that has contributed to this thread over the years. <3

Thank you very much for your recommendations, they are excellent! I would like to recommend 'Pos Tenebras, Lux', an epic fanfic.
Lucille: John & Marlena - Hugging youdying_dreams on June 9th, 2011 09:22 pm (UTC)
Thank you for taking the time to post a recommendation of your own! ^_^

*googles the recommendation and ends up on Fanfiction.net*

Wow, 43 chapters! O_o That will keep me busy for a while, heh heh! ;)
rainstorms724: sunsetrainstorms724 on November 9th, 2011 04:20 am (UTC)
another HG/SS fanfic site
Hey, you should definitely check out thepetulantpoetess.com . It's a great site with some awesome fanfiction.
Lucilledying_dreams on February 16th, 2012 05:53 pm (UTC)
Hello rainstorms724, thank you for the recommendation! That definitely looks like an excellent site, and I have just added it to the main post. ^_^

Love this list
omg i love this list...i wish i could find and read "Grasping At Normality" by Kaz814 again!!! :'( I wonder why it was taken down...
(Anonymous) on December 15th, 2011 09:47 pm (UTC)
I don't know if anyone else enjoyed this, but Being Hermione Granger was one of the best HG/SS stories I have ever read. It isn't the usual portrayal of Hermione, but I really liked the way she was written.

Lucilledying_dreams on February 16th, 2012 05:25 pm (UTC)
Thank you for recommending "Being Hermione Granger" by Amphotera! ^_^ It has been added to my "To read!"-list and hopefully it won't be too long before I find the time to give it a read. ;)
Jenjenny_1260 on January 10th, 2012 11:08 am (UTC)
Hello again :) Soooo I've read a lot more SSHG since my last comment, and couldn't resist coming back to put this fic out there: The Problem With Purity by Phoenix.Writing/Silver Birch (complete and epic). All time favourite fanfic. Actually, I feel slightly paranoid that it's not on your list and that maybe I've missed it somehow, or it's been mentioned already, because everyone NEEDS to know about this. But then I realize the OP was from 2005, and having only gotten to SSHG in the past year... wow. There really is so much good stuff out there.

Sorry I'm not linking to the fic as I'm tapping this on my phone, it's easily google-able and on fanfiction.net :)
Lucilledying_dreams on February 16th, 2012 05:19 pm (UTC)
Hey Jenny, thank you for recommending "The Problem With Purity" by Phoenix.Writing (a.k.a. Silver Birch)! I will try to give it a read when and if I can find the time for it. ^_^

Also, I know the original list in the original post (from 2005) has not been updated with all of the other recommendations that many people have given, but that is simply because I haven't really been using my LiveJournal much since that time (in fact, I seldomly log in here) - plus it would be a bit of work to include all of the newer recommendations, and I no longer really have the time for that in general. But at least the recommendations are all featured in the (public) comments to this entry, so I figured most (die-hard) SS/HG 'shippers would read the comments anyway, so the recommendations are not lost and still available to everyone. They just take a little bit more effort to find, that's all. ;)

Anyway, I am glad to hear that you are loving the SS/HG fandom so much - I hope you will continue to do so, and don't hesitate to post more recommendations if and when you feel like it! ^_^
(Anonymous) on January 25th, 2012 03:41 am (UTC)
Loving this thread!

I am also searching for a fic (if anyone is still checking here...). It's definitely a one-shot. It's in the form of a letter, from an unknown man to Ron, talking about the affair that he is having with Hermione, and how wonderful it is to be with her, knowing that they are sneaking behind his back. In the end, it is signed (of course) by SS. I don't normally do one-shots - I bypass them completely - but this one caught my eye and I'd love to find it again.
Lucilledying_dreams on February 16th, 2012 05:03 pm (UTC)
That indeed sounds like an interesting fanfic, but it doesn't ring any bells for me, unfortunately. :( I do hope someone else here will recognise the fanfic based on the description that you have given, but if not, you can always try at snapeyluvshermy. That is a community specially created for all questions concerning SS/HG fanfiction. :)

I wish you the best of luck with finding that fanfic - and perhaps if you do find it, it would be neat if you posted its title and link here, so that you can share the joy with others! ^_^
(Anonymous) on March 14th, 2012 08:49 pm (UTC)
I am so happy to see Problem with Purity on this list. It is hands down my all time favorite SS/HG fic. A few others that are really good - Care of Magical Creatures, The Gilded Cage, and the Apprentice and the Necromancer (which has a seemingly abandoned sequel)...they are all on ff.net but I can't remember the authors off the top of my head

Thank you very much for your recommendations! :D I have looked them up and added them to the commenters' recommendation list. ^_^
(Anonymous) on April 24th, 2012 12:45 pm (UTC)
heys, I was reading this story before i came across your webpage. the title is "The Butterfly Effect" by Sequoiatoad. Do check it out and update the link, should be the correct one, though i somehow feel that the story is incomplete. =/ regardless, thanks for the awsome list of compile fanfiction. =D
Lucille: John & Cameron - Robots don't know lovedying_dreams on October 10th, 2012 05:43 pm (UTC)
Thank you very much for providing us with a new link for "The Butterfly Effect"! :D Previously, it could no longer be found on the Internet, so I am glad to see that it is available on-line again! ^_^
AnneMarie BetsillAnneMarie Betsill on May 25th, 2012 11:59 pm (UTC)
I'm looking for some new stories. Can't wait to read all of these!! I have a suggestion as well. Ms_Figg on adultfanfiction has over 110 completed Hermione/Sev stories! :) I've read them all repeatedly, and they are fantastic!!!!! http://hp.adultfanfiction.net/authors.php?no=1296780263

I have just read Roman holidays (55 chapters) and was wondering was it finished as it ended on a bit of an unfinished note. Nothing had yet happend to Draco regarding the curse and that seemed to be the main storyline. If it is finishe what comes next in the series as I know there is at least 1 other fanfic following it. Thanks! :)
Lucille: John & Cameron - Robots don't know lovedying_dreams on October 10th, 2012 05:50 pm (UTC)

As far as I know, "Roman Holiday" is indeed finished. It is the first installment in a series - the second installment is "Jewel of the Nile" and the story continues in there. "Jewel of the Nile" is also featured in my list of SS/HG fanfiction stories: it can be found at place #11.

I hope that helps! :)

Have a nice day,

Thank you for recc'ing "Terrible Temptation". It's nice to think that people are still enjoying it.
silvrocksilvrock on September 28th, 2013 06:45 pm (UTC)
Wonderful wonderful list!

Can you please tell me if you know a pretty serious fic in which Hermione is suffering from PTSD and the author has done justice to the PTSD afflicted character of Hermione?

I've read hundreds of HGSS, and ive read about the existence of such a fic, but for the life of me, I can't find it! Can you please point me?

dead_ending on December 5th, 2015 12:44 pm (UTC)
Are you looking for a specific fic, or are you looking for fic/s that are serious in nature and deal with PTSD or elements of mental battle scarring?
