Since IJ's been eating comments recently, I decided to take </a></strong></a>harmony_bites
' suggestion and create a post dedicated to the growing number of Rescue Fics out there:
From Longest to Shortest...
), “The Errand”
4,977 words, Angst, Romance, (PG-13) Summary
: DH FIX Missing scenes and tag. Lovely SSHG story of a Snape being saved that is completely DH Compliant right down to the epilogue (if you ignore Harry's use of the word “was.”) The Luna in particular just shined.
, “Flying Lessons”
3,580 words, Angst, Friendship, (PG-13) Summary
: This is the second of two one-shots that provide alternate endings to Snape’s story line, so the story contains DH spoilers.Bring out the time-turner! Yet another Hermione saves Snape story, but a variation on the theme I very much liked.
, “Saving a Death Eater”
3,035 words, Drama, Hurt/Comfort, Romance, (PG-13) Summary
: Post-Deathly Hallows plot. While Harry is immured in the headmaster’s office, sunk into Snape’s memories, Hermione is spurred into action of a different sort.I loved this. It of course features Bambu’s usual gorgeous prose, is absolutely plausible given DH (at least up to the epilogue) and the Poppy Pomfrey—and, of course, Snape—are wonderful.
, “The Design for After Living”
2,064 words, Drama, Romance, (PG) Summary
: Taking a break from my now AU-and-loving-it Rumpole/HP crossover to get a DH-related fic out of my system. Truly imaginative magic and a creative way to get our couple together within strict bounds of DH-canon. Lovely. Truly.
, “The Wizard Groom”
500 words, Humor, Romance, (PG) Summary
: Massive amounts of Princess Bride quotations & paraphrases. Minor Monty Pythonage.Heh. Insane, but in such a *good* way. Fun, witty way of getting our hero back.
, “Flower Remedy”
101 words, General, Humor (PG) Summary
: 100 word drabble DH spoiler: sometimes the old ways are the best.Really Snape and Hermione rather than SSHG, but this resurrection fic did make me smile.
, “What's in a name?”
100 words, General, Humor (PG) Summary
: All dialogue challengePut off by the epilogue? Feel there’s no canonical way beyond it to SSHG? Read this, and get ready to smile.
9. "Snape's Choice" by clare009 http://mujaji.net/repository/viewstory.php?sid=3
Summary: Post-DH. What happens after Harry leaves Snape in the Shrieking Shack. (This will be SSHG soon.)
Rated: K+, 2789 words
10. "Three of a Perfect Pair", by clare009 and catherinecookmnhttp://catherinecookmn.livejournal.com/41782.html
A crackfic continuation of "Snape's Choice" (which will have its own separate continuation) that got out of hand and developed a plot, of all things.
And here's a non-SSHG Rescue Fic:
“Stoned” by Cruisedirectorhttp://www.fictionalley.org/authors/cruisedirector/stoned01.html
Slash: m/m, HP/SS, Humour/Parody, Post-DH
Story Summary: Harry should know better than to litter in the Forbidden Forest.
More to be added as we find them (and if we find them worth mentioning).
