Welcome to the Potions and Snitches (P&S) Fanfiction archive.

This is the home for stories exploring the general relationship between Severus Snape and Harry Potter. You will be able to find Mentor fics, Father and Son fics, and similar type stories in the archive. MA rated fics are not allowed on this site, nor is SS/HP slash (SS/HP romantic or sexual content). Gen means nonslash.

Chocolate frog ratings: When submitting a review, you will have the option of rating the story as well, from 1-10. A ten is a fantastic, ridiculously awesome chapter that you are going to want to reread; a five should be an average story, which translates to 2.5 frogs.

Am desperately avoiding being in public as much as possible, and library policies keep changing... I'll hang onto it! Happy Halloween! 🎃
10/30/20 08:13 pm London Time
@rosina-- So sorry! I got my Halloween story typed (only took 5 sessions to type 10,000+ words!), but due to Covid-19 pandemic, can't get it posted right now. 😞

I hit the file with the little "W" and copy/pasted in there, thein hit "insert". Must preview to actually see it. It worked perfectly. No format changes needed.
10/30/20 06:41 am London Time
missy how did you get it to work? :)
10/29/20 11:20 pm London Time
HA! Figured it out! I've updated two chapters tp ACaF and one for the Unexpected Snape. Sorry it took so long, Luck!
10/28/20 11:06 pm London Time
I've been trying to post new chapters for two stories. The file will upload but it won't appear. I can't even get it to copy/paste. What am I doing wrong? I have no trouble uploading els

Hello! I haven't stopped by in awhile. Thought I'd say "hi." How's it going?
10/14/20 08:16 am London Time
Just for fun, I guess. Some people don't like reading about a OOC Snape, some love particular in character Snape shades.
10/10/20 08:10 pm London Time
Hi everyone, I'm new to posting (waiting on admin check) and wondered, also as a reader: why so many Snape flavours? I love canon-like Snape but for me that's also a bully, mean, cruel...
10/09/20 07:37 pm London Time
Okay... That was weird. Like within 5 minutes of typing my last shout here I found it! It's Harry Potter and the Freedom of Flight by MountainRose. Moved to AO3.Unfinished but a good read!
10/09/20 07:30 pm London Time
Maybe it's been removed, because I was sure I had it on my favorites and alert lists. Oh well. I'll keep trying and maybe someone else knows the story.
10/09/20 07:29 pm London Time
Thanks shadowienne. Unfortunately no luck, I came across Star Trek and Star Wars inspired stories. That's not it.
10/07/20 08:12 pm London Time
relative, I've never heard of that story, but I tried to google parts of your description, and several stories popped up; you might try searching OFF fanfic sites using various keywords. Good luck
