Hello all. I was looking for some good Snape centric fics. Snape should initially have his canon personality (reasonable deviations allowed). It can be a romance, though non romance fics are perfectly welcome. Also, I don't want to read Yaoi but since this thread will be read by users who enjoy them, please mention if the fic is Yaoi. Oh, and Harry may or may not be present. Here's a few recommended by me- Pet Project by Caeria. Summary-Hermione overhears something she shouldn't concerning Professor Snape and decides that maybe the House-elves aren't the only ones in need of protection. Harry Potter, M, English, Romance, chapters: 52, words: 338k , favs: 8k , follows: 6k , updated:Jun 9, 2013published:Mar 4, 2005, Hermione G., Severus S. The summary may sound cheesy but it actually is a wonderful fic. Their are many subplots scattered throughout the captivating main storyline, with Snape slowly growing to care about Hermione. For those of you who are weirded out by the schoolgirl-teacher pairing, this fic actually does not delve into the romantic relationship of the two until the very end, though the budding interest can be seen on behalf of both parties. Always in your shadow by Arinus Summary-Severus Snape discovers he has a daughter, born of a brief affair with Bellatrix Lestrange. First, a journey to reachthe frightened, emotionally damaged child, and then a full-blown mental war, as Bellatrix manages to possess the girl from her cell in Azkaban. Among other things, an in-depth exploration of Occlumency. Another good one. Features a young (21 yr old) Severus who has recently been made the Potion master of Hogwarts, and a fanatically loyal Bella's mentally tortured daughter. A tale of how the quiet daughter and her socially awkward father bond, and heal each other. Though it is a dark fic, it has a very sweet ending. I loved this one. It's sequel? Not so much. Iruka at Hogwarts by KT-chan88 Summary-Iruka was a sensible man, really. Ok, so jumping into a swirling vortex to save Naruto was not really a work of a sensible man. It seemed like a good idea at the time... Severus is one of the main characters in this brilliantly written NarutoxHP crossover set in GoF. A funny tale of how the WW deals with Iruka and Naruto who've been transported to their world. This one is incomplete, but still a worthy read. Come once again and love me by laventadorn Summary-Severus wakes up in the afterlife expecting something rather different than being almost-seventeen again. Seriously, what kind of game is this? But wait - Lily's come back, too - from 1981? Perhaps it's a second chance... but to do what? SS/LE Harry Potter, M, English, Drama & Angst, chapters: 25,words: 188k , favs: 657, follows: 204, updated:Jan 27, 2012publishedec 25, 2011, Severus S., Lily Evans P. This is one of the best fics I have ever read. Not only a 38 yr old Severus, but also a 21 yr old Lily come back in time, both trying to fix what went wrong. The story is more about them trying to figure out how to make it so that the least noumber of people die, and dealing with their emotional baggage, in the process rediscovering their friendship than it is about romance.
