Hey, all!

I was hoping to find someone interested in Beta'ing my current WIP. It's AU, HPB compliant, with elements of DH canon. The fic itself takes place during war time, it is dark and full of angst, with a rating that is currently Mature.

While I currently have a Beta, she's a long-time friend and we both agreed she'd help me until I found someone more permanent. I've had a long absence from the world of fanfiction, and most of the friendships I formed way back when, are no longer apart of the fandom.

If you're at all interested, the first two chapters are posted at Ashwinder and Granger Enchanted! My Penname is Cliche, and the story is titled, 'A Man's Heart'. As of right now, I do have the following six chapters written, and I'm making progress on the next!

Thank you!

I hope I am allowed to post this here as I've been looking for quite some time and would like to find a like-minded writer.

With the kids heading back to school, I always get bitten by the 'creativity bug'. I enjoy writing/portraying the character of Severus Snape in private story lines, or playing other characters with/against a good Severus, but I always have difficulty in finding a writing partner with whom I mesh. I've been longing to try my hand at a Severus/Hermione story. I thought I might try asking this group. :)

Cross-posted everywhere.

I would like to write a Severus/Hermione storyline, preferably sometime post DH or at least post HBP with an ignoring of inconvenient deaths and so on. I prefer to write Severus but can and will write Hermione against a strong Severus.

Basic characteristics of myself and what I hope to find in a writing partner are here:

I know this all seems so picky, but I've had so many false starts and failed attempts that it saves time to be particular from the start. My good, strong writing relationships have lasted literally for years! Marriage, babies, job changes, a fading of interest in the fandom and such have left me once again looking for a partner or two.

If I haven't scared you off and you'd like to chat about possibly writing together, please contact me here or at my 'writing' email of shant.writes (at) gmail (dot) com.

I can't believe I didn't save this fic link. It might have come from the SSHG Exchange, but not the most recent round. All I remember is that it takes place on a small island off Scotland. Not near the coast -- maybe the Faroe Islands, which are about halfway between Britain and Iceland. Seems like it's a research station the Ministry set up, and our heroes both have work there. They don't get back to mainland Britain much, which is both a blessing and a drawback. I don't remember much else, I'm afraid, except maybe a subplot about social activities ... a dance, perhaps?

Hi all,

I'm searching for a fic I read atleast a year ago. It was Hermione/Snape, and from what I recall, it involved:

  • it was set in South America

  • Hermione taught Snape about rope bridges in the tops of the forests

  • There were lots of magical creatures involved

  • They were living in tents with some researchers, at a camp

If anyone can help me, I'd greatly appreciate it. I recall liking this story a lot, and I've been very sorry I didn't bookmark it then!

If I'm not overstaying my welcome, there's another fic I'm searching for. The problem is I remember only a part of the story, a scene, and not which title it belongs to. In it Snape or Hermione are caught in a nightmare. I think it's Snape - caught in a nightmare of his worst self serving Harry as the Dark Lord now that Voldemort's gone or such. Then Harry and Hermione go in after him and Hermione is injured by his fears. Sound familiar to anyone?

Thanks for your time!

Hi! I need some help. I've decided to write an HG/SS story for National Novel Writing Month this year. However, I've been out of the fandom for quite a while, so I'm spending October reading lots of fanfic to get myself back into the mindset. I'm looking for fic recs for any story that deals with a developing relationship between an adult Hermione and Severus. Optional elements:

Humor is okay, but while I occasionally enjoy reading crack!fic, it won't be very helpful to me right now.

In my story, both Hermione and Severus are teaching at Hogwarts, so I would love to read some stories that deal with that situation.

My story will be based on LotM's Lost in a Book Challenge from years back, if anyone remembers that one. So challenge responses that you enjoyed would be helpful, as well as any other type of story where Hermione and Severus get trapped in an alternate universe or are otherwise forced to work together to get out of a situation.

My story will also contain Harry/Ginny, so any fics that deal with their relationship as well would be especially helpful. Also, if anyone knows where I should go to ask for Harry/Ginny recs, that would be great!

I am also looking for a specific story I read a while ago. I don't remember if it was HG/SS, although it seems likely, since that's pretty much all I was reading. I remember it as being more of a Hermione character study which delved into why she acted like such a know-it-all right from the beginning, and how it had to do with the way she was raised. There are probably lots of stories like this, so I'm sorry I can't be more specific, but anything that deals with this, whether it's the one I'm remembering or not, would be appreciated.

Sorry this is so long, but thanks in advance for any help you guys can give me!

I was wondering if anyone had a copy of The Lioness Prophecies by AMR they wouldn't mind sharing. Thanks!

I am looking for a beta to read over my new story and correct the punctuation and grammar. It is a SS/HG story.

Thank you,
