Pairing: Hermione Granger/Severus Snape
Fic Title: Where Your Treasure Is
Rating/Warning(s): T, violence, mentions of sexual assault
Why This Must Be Read: This is my post-DH canon. I want to print this out, bind it, and put it on my shelf next to my HP books. It's such a great slow-burn relationship-building fic and I absolutely fell in love with it while reading it.
Fic Title: Phoenix Song or Hermione Granger and the HBP
Why This Must Be Read: This is Half-Blood Prince from Hermione's point of view. I usually avoid stories that try this sort of thing, but boy am I glad I didn't pass this one by. It touched on so very many of my own personal canon interpretations and, considering the fact the I've read everything since OotP through SSHG-colored glasses, this is just about the most perfect fic in this ship for me. Everything fits so perfectly in the holes in canon. It's believable. It's beautiful. I love it.
The sequel, Phoenix Tears or Hermione Granger and the DH, is currently being posted and I have every confidence that it will be just as amazing as this was.
Fic Title: Even Stopper Death
Why This Must Be Read: I love playing in the holes in canon, but I've yet to follow through and actually write anything about the little plot bunnies I think up. So I decided to throw one of the bunnies out there as a fic prompt for the Winter '08/'09 sshg_exchange: Hermione can't see Thestrals, but she is sure she saw Snape die. Scatteredlogic turned that prompt into something well-plotted and well-written, interesting and intriguing, and, best of all, it fits.
