sshg_promptfest Poll: Got prompts?


Life is so busy that I forgot to cancel this year's run of the sshg_promptfest until someone, well, two someones, asked where the prompt-collection post was. That wasn't very many someones, so here's the deal: take the poll, members, and if there's enough interest to run at least a wee fest, I'll run one. If not, so long, and thanks for all the fan works! *smooches*

Poll #2079259 If the SSHG Prompt Fest runs this year, . . .

I'll submit prompts!


I'll claim prompts!



Sign ups for the next run of the sshg_giftfest are ongoing through 24 August! The SSHG Gift Fest is an anonymous gift exchange that takes place during the holiday season; its focus is on the pairing of Severus Snape/Hermione Granger. Do you love SS/HG? If so, you know what to do!

The sshg_promptfest 2017 Summer Reveal!


Well, that's all for this run, folks! I hope that you've enjoyed everyone's contributions. I also hope that, if you haven't already done so, you'll leave comments in reply to all the things works! *encourages*

Creators, you are now free to post your works wherever you like and to reply as your fandom selves to the comments that you received. While you're doing that, I'll prepare for the SSHG Prompt Fest's next run by clearing the mod account's flist. Please don't take it personally; the mod account's flist is always the list of the fest's current participants. :)

Without further ado, I present the SSHG Prompt Fest 2017 Summer Reveal!Collapse )

All best,


FIC: Heights and Fire (PG)

Title: Heights and Fire
Type: Fic
Prompter: iulia_linnea
Creator: iulia_linnea
Beta(s): arynwy and Shog
Rating: PG
(Highlight to View) Warning(s): None.
(Highlight to View) Prompt: Prompt yourself for fic!
Summary: For great good reason, Hermione is afraid of heights and fire . . . and she notices things.

Heights and FireCollapse )

FIC: Almost Like Magic (PG-13)

Title: Almost Like Magic
Type: Fic
Prompter: delphipsmith
Creator: darkheartwalsh
Beta(s): The lovely, LJ-less RNR
Rating: PG-13
(Highlight to View) Warning(s): None.
(Highlight to View) Prompt: Snape has been appointed a lecturer at Unseen University; he and Hermione attend their first faculty soiree.
Note: This is a Harry Potter/Discworld crossover fic.
Summary: Hogwarts' newest Professor is in a bit of a pickle. Hot on the heels of one of the country's most dangerous magical creatures, she's only gone and found herself transported to another world mid-chase. A world that is flat and disc-shaped, where magic doesn't work quite as it's supposed to, and where the local Librarian has a distinct taste for bananas. It's unfortunate, too, that this new world is also home to the last person she wants to see. Oh, and there's still the matter of that creature to deal with. Bugger.

Almost Like MagicCollapse )

FIC: Much Ado (PG)

Title: Much Ado
Type: Fic
Prompter: rayvyn2k
Creator: bardsdaughter1
Beta(s): Beth
Rating: PG
(Highlight to View) Warning(s): None.
(Highlight to View) Prompt: "Much Ado About Nothing". Hermione and Severus in the Beatrice and Benedick roles. Whether it's AU or the school play is up to you (SS & HG that becomes SS/HG just like the play).
Summary: The war may be over, but someone is still plotting Harry Potter's downfall. In a plot worthy of Shakespeare himself, Severus and Hermione must put aside their own wishes and work to save Harry's pride.

Much AdoCollapse )

FIC: What's Past is Prologue (G)

Title: What's Past is Prologue
Type: Fic
Prompter: kerravonsen
Creator: delphipsmith
Beta(s): nursedarry
Rating: G
(Highlight to View) Warning(s): None. Well, there's some math. :)
(Highlight to View) Prompt: Hermione never stops asking questions. This time she questions something that nobody has ever dared to do: what is the nature of magic? Why are the students of Hogwarts taught to do things in a certain way? In her quest for answers, she discovers a dangerous and horrifying secret. And then she bumps into Severus Snape. An accident, or not? Will he aid her, or does he have a different agenda (SS & HG)?
Note: All dates are historically accurate for both the Muggle and Wizarding world, so far as I have been able to determine. Thanks to kerravonsen for a wonderful prompt, to my husband (who doesn't "get" SSHG at all but is always happy to help) for the idea that kick-started this story, and to nursedarry, fastest beta in the west.
Summary: Sometimes when you search, you don't like what you find. Both Severus and Hermione are about to find this out, as a mystery from the past reaches out to touch the present.

What's Past is PrologueCollapse )
Title: The Will of the Stone Barn Council
Type: Fic
Prompter: Erin/Posting Mod
Creator: mundungus42
Beta(s): JS
Rating: PG
(Highlight to View) Warning(s): Discussions of death and pet loss, rhyming verse, literary homage.
(Highlight to View) Prompt: An elderly Crookshanks, knowing his time is near, leads a fuzzy family to the safety of Hermione and Severus' home (Crookshanks' PoV would be welcome).
Summary: The question isn't where we go at the end of our lives. The question is what we do when we know it's coming. Crookshanks calls a council to help him decide on a successor to ensure that his family will be properly cared for when his time comes.

The Will of the Stone Barn CouncilCollapse )

FIC: Fields of Competition (G)

Title: Fields of Competition
Type: Fic
Prompter: Anonymous Two
Creator: gaeilgerua
Beta(s): xxdustnight88 and twztdwildcat
Rating: G
(Highlight to View) Warning(s): None.
(Highlight to View) Prompt: When Pumpkins Fly: Severus and Hermione compete against one another during Hogsmeade's annual vegetable competition (SS/HG).
Note: Many thanks go to our wonderful mod for running this wonderful fest. Thank you to my betas for their help and to the prompter for the fun prompt. I hope this lives up to your expectations.
Summary: Ever since he joined the teaching staff at Hogwarts, Severus has won the annual Hogsmeade Vegetable Competition. There's a new teacher in town, and she's not about to let him win so easily this year.

Fields of CompetitionCollapse )

FIC: Teshuvah (PG-13)

Title: Teshuvah
Type: Fic
Prompter: too_dle_oo
Creator: ms_anthrop
Beta(s): Lolly
Rating: PG-13
(Highlight to View) Warning(s): Adult language, mentions of domestic violence and genocide.
(Highlight to View) Prompt: Redeemed Tobias. I don't care how you do it, but I'd like to see an apologetic man who's working on healing the past. How Severus and Hermione fit together in all of this is up to you.
Summary: The Bard's old adage, 'Misery acquaints a man with strange bedfellows', is once again proven true when Petunia Dursley gets the most unexpected visitor following the Final Battle.

TeshuvahCollapse )

FIC: Parents' Day (G)

Title: Parents' Day
Type: Fic
Prompter: rayvyn2k
Creator: willibald
Beta(s): eoforyth
Rating: G
(Highlight to View) Warning(s): Epilogue compliant.
(Highlight to View) Prompt: Snape was poisoned by Nagini's bite ala "Sleeping Beauty." Hermione is not going to wait one hundred years for him to awaken.
Summary: Parents' Day should be a time for families to be together enjoying the wonders of Hogwarts, but Hermione finds herself alone with her thoughts—and someone else's.

Parents’ DayCollapse )

FIC: Potions and Propriety (PG)

Title: Potions and Propriety
Type: Fic
Prompter: Anonymous Five
Creator: hiddenhibernian
Beta(s): williamsnickers
Rating: PG
(Highlight to View) Warning(s): None.
(Highlight to View) Prompt: Severus, tutor to a spoilt young lord taking the Grand Tour, falls in love with Hermione, paid companion of the demanding lady with whom Severus' master is currently amusing himself (SS/HG).
Note: This was difficult to write. Very difficult. I thought hours upon hours of reading Georgette Heyer had prepared me for the task, but boy, was I wrong. williamsnickers was an amazing beta and bears no responsibility for any social solipsisms committed by the characters.
Summary: For a well-bred British wizard, a Grand Tour is essential to complete one's education. Severus has been entrusted with the unenviable task of ensuring Draco Malfoy completes his travels unscathed. When they encounter the lovely Lady Heloïse and her unremarkable companion in Venice, the undertaking becomes almost impossible.

Potions and ProprietyCollapse )

FIC: Freudian Robes (R)

Title: Freudian Robes
Type: Fic
Prompter: dreamy_dragon73
Creator: iqeret
Rating: R
(Highlight to View) Warning(s): None.
(Highlight to View) Prompt: We all know that Severus loves to wear black. That hasn't changed after the war (maybe he's finally realised that the brooding-black-bat look makes him rather popular with the ladies?), but how and why did one of his black robes end up in Hermione's wardrobe?
Summary: Ginny finds a certain set of robes in Hermione's wardrobe, which leads to a confrontation between The Black Bat and The Golden Girl. It does not, however, go quite as might be expected—or as Ginny might have hoped.

Freudian RobesCollapse )

FIC: Finding a Voice (PG-13)

Title: Finding A Voice
Type: Fic
Prompter: themightyflynn
Creator: jaxomsride
Beta(s): reynardo and her Partner in Crime
Rating: PG-13
(Highlight to View) Warning(s): Swearing.
(Highlight to View) Prompt: Severus' vocal cords were damaged by Nagini's attack. The one person capable of putting up with his foul moods and temper tantrums is Hermione, who is tasked with helping him learn to speak again (SS/HG).
Note: Thanks to the betas whose help was greatly appreciated.
Summary: Hermione is appointed Severus' Healer and suggests a novel course of treatment.

Finding A VoiceCollapse )

FIC: A Fortunate Man (PG-13)

Title: A Fortunate Man
Type: Fic
Prompter: eoforyth
Creator: slbb_lj
Beta(s): jpv
Rating: PG-13
(Highlight to View) Warning(s): Pregnancy Loss (in the past).
(Highlight to View) Prompt: Severus invites Hermione to a secluded picnic spot, where she realises she is not so much a guest as bait for a spot of ingredients collection (SS/HG or SS & HG).
Summary: Severus hopes a potion will provide a little reassurance for Hermione—and himself.

A Fortunate ManCollapse )

FIC: Unexpected Daddy (G)

Title: Unexpected Daddy
Type: Fic
Prompter: Anonymous Six
Creator: stronghermione1
Beta(s): Noggies
Rating: G
(Highlight to View) Warning(s): None.
(Highlight to View) Prompt: How you get here is up to you, but the situation is this: Severus has never had any romantic feelings for Hermione, which is good because, when she's somehow permanently de-aged, he's the one who ends up having to raise her (SS & HG)..
Summary: How did Severus find himself with a child? And not just any child, but Hermione Granger… aged three!

Unexpected DaddyCollapse )

ART: Woven Threads (G)

Title: Woven Threads
Type: Art
Prompter: eoforyth
Creator: kerravonsen
Rating: G
(Highlight to View) Warning(s): None.
(Highlight to View) Prompt: Threads. As light as gossamer or spun into a thread; holding things together at the seams; yarn woven into a tapestry or the warmest blanket; twisted into string, a cord, a rope. Threads of memory or of hair. Loose threads..
Note: I did say I had too many ideas for this prompt. And here I'm waxing lyrical about braided cord.
Summary: "A cord of three strands is not easily broken."
