Aqua Fresca by Perfica
Length: Chaptered (86491 words)

Summary: “Set in an alternative reality which veers from canon after OotP, and where Harry is over eighteen and attending Hogwarts. Harry witnesses Severus suffering under an unusual curse. Both of them struggle to come to terms with the new intimacy that springs up between them because of the vision.”
HP Lover: Perfica is one of those authors that you must read, and as per usual she does not hold back in this one. An AU with an over 18 Harry, there is a lot of depth and a noble Harry lusting after his professor… I wont say any more, just simply — Read it!

New! A Shared Affliction by Pekeleke
Length: Oneshot
Pairing/Characters: Severus/Harry
Summary: “You should go for it, Pot-er- Harry,” Severus tries purring. It sounds ridiculously pretentious to his own ears, but Potter’s breath clearly hitches.
HP Lover: Pekeleke is one of my favourite authors, and they don’t disappoint in this cute little story. A delightful quick read.

Bloodless and Blind by Occasusvenustas
Length: Oneshot
Pairing/Characters: Severus/Harry
Rating: R
Summary: “Harry turned his head and against better judgement, he kissed Severus. It was cold again. There was no heat lurking behind this. But then again, Harry knew that’s how it would always be between them.”
HP Lover: Short, but not sweet. Set post war but other time indicators are vague in reference. There is a character death that is mentioned but you dont actually see it happen. I don’t necessarily like (love) this story however it is well written and I have now read it a few times. It is as realistic as a vamp story can be, given the subject manner, and that gritty reality is what gives it it’s edge.

Blood Tides by Eriador117
Length: 29 Chapters – 56440 words
Pairing/Characters: Severus/Harry
Rating: M+

By Sulfur and Salt by Elfwreck
Length: Oneshot
Summary: Snape’s idyllic life with Lily is disrupted when the Ministry of Magic takes an interest in them.
HP Lover: A bizarre little story about Severus Snape and Lily Prince… I’m not really sure what to make of this one. But one I am sure is rather a unique take on what happens after the war!

Call of Blood by Lakhesis
Length: Oneshot – approx. 5000
Summary: Part of the From Dusk till Dawn Severus Snape/Harry Potter Fuh-Q-Fest. Challenge: Harry overhears Snape talking to Dumbledore. WHAT? Snape’s attracted to him?!
HP Lover: A lovely oneshot with Professor Potter and Professor Snape. Harry is the Muggle Studies teacher and overhears a damning conversation between Snape and Dumbledore. I do so like the stories where Severus fights against his nature, only to be saved by Harry, and then they fall in lurve… Yeah well this is one of those but a little different to the norm. Check it out and while you’re at it. Check out the sequel too, it’s just as good as the other – Ritual of Erosade

Length: 31931 words or 8 chapters

Written for 7spells LJ community and by Calanor and Morganlefay1958.
HP Lover: A time travel and a vampire fic… who could ask for more? This is another well written serving from my favourite duo of Calanor and Morganlefey1958. I wont go into the details about Severus Snape and how he became the submissive in this story, bu rest assured that it is rather good. Hot smutty scenes, angst, retribution and gypsy violinists will dance around with many dark and wonderful creatures and coerce you to kick up your heels and dance!!

Defender’s Armor by Lomonaaeren
Length: Oneshot – 4363 words
Pairing/Characters: Harry/Severus
Summary: Severus could have expected to meet Harry Potter in many places, but not at a potions conference. And especially not a Harry Potter like this.
HP Lover: Another wonderful offering from Lomonaaeren. Her stories are intricate and compelling. I have always loved a Snarry that has both of them meeting on equal ground, this one has it in spades. Also on FFNet, and Dreamwidth.

Oneshot15,801 words
Pairing/Characters: Harry/Draco
“Harry was hit with a curse that the Healers were helpless to stop. Now, on Beltane evening, Harry is ready to admit that Draco was right about the treatment for his condition all along.”
HP Lover:
An interestingly written oneshot that is set post war/hogwarts and has Draco going after what he wants. The interesting part in this story is how it jumps from different time frames back and forth. One minute in the present and another in the past, explaining the present. I really enjoyed this one. But then that is not surprising given that is Lomonaaeren that wrote it!

Eternal Bonds by Rowaine
Length: in 4 parts
Pairing/Characters: Harry/Severus
Summary: Snape’s in a bad situation that could threaten his life, but Harry has a way out. If the stubborn bastard will accept help from a Gryffindor. Also on Adult Fanfiction.org

Length: Oneshot
Pairing/Characters: Harry/Ginny, Ron/Hermione, Severus/Harry, Ginny/Blaise/Lavender
Summary: Nineteen years later, betrayed by Ginny, Harry lies dying alone until a ghost from the past returns….
HP Lover: Calanor/Seulwolfe is one of my favourite authors and once again she doesn’t disappoint in this little fic. I was never a fan of the various vampire fics around, creature fics seemed to be a waste of time. But I have been converted and this one is one of the few that did so. There is no going on about mates and other vampire rites a rituals romanticised beyond belief. Just a choice. Read it and enjoy!!!

Pairing/Characters: Harry/Severus

HP Lover: This would have to be one of the most adorable IC Snape stories I have read. Snape wakes up and thinks that he is in love with Harry with most amusing consequences! Also found here.

Length: Oneshot – <3000 words
Pairing/Characters: Harry/Severus
Summary: The staff at Hogwarts are causing problems for Severus and Harry.
HP Lover: An older offering, but worth taking the time to read. Admittedly I’m not fond of fics that explore the main relationship using other characters points of view, but it is an amusing read.

Length: 11 Chapters – 94840 words

Summary: “Auror Harry Potter learns a startling secret about his former Potions teacher.”
HP Lover: No listing is complete without a reference to one of Tira Nog’s works. Her works are referred to as classics for a reason, well written, engaging and unique are some of the ways with which I would describe her stories. If you only ever read one snarry vamp story then it had better be this one. Alternate link at Walking the Plank, Ink Stained Fingers, AO3.

The ‘Normal’ Life of Harry Potter by darkpyroangel06
Length: Chaptered (68,791 words)
Pairing/Characters: Severus/Harry
Summary: “Harry Potter’s life has always been normal right? So why change anything? Snape’s a vampire; Harry was about to die. There’s only one solution, one that no one’s going to like…”
HP Lover: Ok, I’ll freely admit that it’s been a while since I have read this one but. From memory it’s angsty, with a side serving of mpreg… This is no amazing piece of literary work like some of the classics. However it’s also not that bad either. I suspect that the main reason for my not absolutely loving it is the angst. I will freely admit to being a fluff lover…

Poked and Prodded by Torino10154
Length: Oneshot – 400 words
Pairing/Characters: Harry/Severus
Summary: Written for adventdrabbles Prompt 4: “Santa Getting Vaccinated.”

NEW! Queer Like Us by Suitesamba
Length: Chaptered – 25,301 words
Pairing/Characters: Harry/Severus
Summary: Severus Snape keeps both feet firmly planted – one in the magical world, and one in the Muggle. He’s a changed man, living a very different life, and might have gone on like this forever, perfectly content, had it not been for a vaguely familiar woman with real beetles for earrings who crossed his path one day at his favourite coffee shop and led him down the street to Harry Potter. A Severus-centric story about self-discovery, self-acceptance, and traveling new roads with both new and familiar faces.
HP Lover: I cannot express how much I enjoyed this one. Suitesamba does a beautiful postwar mature Harry, and Severus has also mellowed into an interesting character. Cannot recommend highly enough!

Length: Chaptered – 57,311 words
Pairing/Characters: Harry/Severus
Summary: Harry loves the magical world his guardians have introduced him to and as he sets off for Hogwarts he doesn’t anticipate the lives he will be changing along the way.
HP Lover: Secret adoptions, Weasley Bashing and an AU that is quite engrossing. I did thoroughly enjoy this one.

NEW! Silas Barnaby and the Green-Eyed Dragon Boy by Suitesamba
Length: Oneshot (13,217 words)
Pairing/Characters: Severus/Harry
Summary: Silas Barnaby enjoys a perfectly ordinary life as a museum guard in York and – until these last weeks, at least – did not see spectacled cats, ghosts in graveyards, or heads in fireplaces. What’s more, the green-eyed man in the portrait in the Dumbles gallery is definitely not winking at him. A tale of sacrifice, forgiveness and people who aren’t at all what they seem.

Slytherin Change by The Red Dragons Order
Length: Oneshot (12,347 words)
Pairing/Characters: Severus/Harry with a side serving of Sirius/Harry
Rating: T
Summary: “Harry Potter’s an engaged young man in a world were Magic has gone wild. One day a group of people arrive at Godrics Hollow and everything goes to hell.”
HP Lover: It’s been a while since I have read this one but from memory it is at least an interesting AU. I don’t usually like the pairing of Sirius and Harry, but this one works.

HP Lover: A lovely little fic with an older Harry (my one weakness) and a cynical Headmaster Snape… Throw in a timeturner, infidelity and of course potions, and you get a real page turner. Of course you really feel for Snape in this one. Also here.

NEW! Two Waltzing Mice by Pekeleke
Length: Oneshot (19,399 words)
Pairing/Characters: Severus/Harry
