Codes and More Choices

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

It's time to renew our hosting plan. If you would like to contribute some funds, here is our P&S donation page! Thank you so much!

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.

P&S Quick Links: Discord - FFN Community - Deviantart Group - Facebook Group

Members have asked about helping and supporting the site. P&S is a fan-created archive, with zero ads. It makes no revenue. It costs a little more than $650 for hosting renewal every three years. We are due to renew this year. Additional costs are for domain renewal, bug fixing costs, etc.. it all adds up.

Since 2015 I have spent $2,430.87 on the site.

If you would like to help with these costs it would be GREATLY appreciated! But no pressure. The Potions and Snitches...

Story of the Moment
One Step at a Time by Siff16 T
Harry never expected anyone to care. He never expected anyone to be there to pick up the pieces after he takes the final step. Badly injured and suffering the effects of long term abuse, does Harry now have the strength to take a step in a different direction?Maybe. Maybe with a little help.

Hey Jan_AQ, thank you so much for adding Til That Morning to the P&S Community on FFN! Just saw it and I'm jumping in joy :)

Thank you! I already linked my FFN profile here :)
02/20/24 11:44 am
besides using the shoutbox. If you link your FFN profile in your P&S profile then I can find your story on fanfiction dot net easy.
02/20/24 11:43 am
Nemo, you may post it on discord and I will add it to the FFN community group. Or you may report something as a bug to send an e-mail. The site e-mails don't work so that's the only way to do

Ya'll, I did it. After 10'ish years I posted a new fic. I'm just going to sit here and pat myself on the back now.

I was thinking of adding a kudos button to chapters

Tagging is easy. You just click and select a list.

1-2% comment to views ratio has been my experience as well. I like to think that the story is SO immersive, people just want to click next chapter instead ::crying-laughing emoji::

Early on when I began writing, I noticed that a new story would get avg 1 review for about every 100 reads (per chap or one-shot story).
