Codes and More Choices

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.

With credit to (and with permission from) our amazing JA Worley comes CozyFest- a fic fest to help us all ease into those longer nights and colder temperatures. Much of this is borrowed from Cozytober, which is a cross-fandom fest, but I've edited the prompts for P&S slightly to fit a little more with the Potterverse.

🍂**Welcome to CozyFest**🍂

This mini fic fest is all about autumn and cozy vibes. Think the smell of the earth after it rains, wearing fuzzy socks...

Yes, the TinyMCE is not working and I told the developer and begging him to fix it but will hire a coder if he cant.
09/21/23 02:36 am
Hey so is anyone else having issue where the TinyMce bar isn't showing up when trying to work on new story content, or am I just failing at life cause its been so long?😅
09/16/23 10:07 am
Oh... Actually, I got an email about Traveling Companions, but I do NOT see a new chapter here!
09/16/23 09:56 am
It looks like an update for Traveling Companions is also missing from Recents.
09/16/23 06:34 am
Sorry about that. I fixed it. I'm working on getting the bug fixed.
09/10/23 07:52 am
I received 4 emails alerting me that Handa's story, Where I Belong, was updated! But it's not on the recent list, as Handa says.
09/09/23 10:58 pm
Hi, I've just updated my story - Where I belong - but still having same issue of not appearing on the recents page :(
09/07/23 05:58 am
It's a list of stories you want to follow for updates but don't want to get e-mails about.
09/05/23 05:21 pm
Lol, I had figured that out somehow! But what is the use of the "Tracked Stories" option? How do I utilize it?
09/04/23 08:55 am
Treedweller, track story does not send any update e-mails out.
09/04/23 08:54 am
kroi, authors do not get updates for their own stories as far as I know. Did you favorite your story? And make sure your preferences are yes to Contact when favorites are updated?
09/04/23 05:27 am
I only get update-emails if I've Added Story to Favorites. I don't get them if I've selected Track Story.
09/04/23 05:04 am
Well, it didn't until you fixed it that is, ha ha! Usually I get update emails for stories I'm following, even when they don't show on Recents.
09/04/23 05:02 am
I got an email for the new Chapter of Traveling Companions, and the chapter is posted (already read it!). But it doesn't show on Recents nor does the proper latest date show on the story itself.
09/03/23 09:19 pm
Jan_AQ, I did not get an email when I posted the update.
09/03/23 05:08 pm
nevermind lol

When I try to join the discord, it says "Unable to accept invite"
09/03/23 04:04 pm
Okay I'm on it. I'm trying to figure out if it is connected to the e-mails. Did you get an e-mail when it was updated?
09/03/23 05:45 am
Just updated another of my stories and it is not showing up. Barely Functioning, Deeply Loved was just updated. It seems whatever this bug is, it is very persistent.
09/02/23 10:27 am
Hmmm... A new chapter of Traveling Companions doesn't seem to be showing up on the Recents list...
