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.

If only I had a working wand... A few Reparo-s, a bunch of Evanesco-s, and a boatload of Tergeo-s... Sooooo much easier! But I'm doing Muggle cleaning. Sigh.

The Covid-19 situation has kept me home, trying to stay away from the IDIOTS who refuse to wear masks. But I've done major spring cleaning, not writing, since March/April. Good progress!

Thx for the encouragement, rosina! I'm ashamed to admit that I haven't written for the past year (or two), but I hope to get back into it, even if only one-shots. 😉
