      Okay. I'm a bit of a Snape bore, & have read most of the good and bad ones that come out on ff.net. Here's a biased account of which I think are good.
      []
      'I was Right' by Earthwalk. Widely considered the best Snapefic ther[sic] is.

      i.e. I was proposing that Snape might have been attracted to Voldemort as 'the epitome of Dark Magic' rather than to death, torture and disappearances. Though the latter may also have been the case :-)
      Glad you like it, as this is the theory I used in my Snapefic..!

      But with non-slash & non-porno, the best Snapefic I've read is "A Father's Sin" by Severitus, [] in which the professor discovers an unlikely student at Hogwarts is his son.

      LOL!! And she'd be right, too, if she did-- I've seen the film once before I started reading Snapefic and once since. [Professor Snape] seemed pretty slashable the first time, but the second time through-- oh my.
    • 2002 3 December, Morrighan, “Fanfic recs please - Snape”, alt.fan.harry-potter, Usenet:
      Am coming back into HP fanficdom after a while away, & wondered if anyone could recommend some good recent Snape fanfics, as all the good Snape authors I know seem to be in hiding or no longer writing. I've found a lot of utter drivel out there, but little or no good recent Snapefic, & was wondering if anyone knew whether any of the Snapefic written in the last 10 months or so is good to outstanding.

      I suppose the reason so many Snapefic writers pair him up with Hermione is that she's really the only choice unless you're going to introduce an original character. In the long run, I don't see the age difference being a problem because of how long wizards live. In the short run, yeah, I could see Snape getting frustrated rather often with being the only adult in the relationship.
