Harry Potter

Chasing the Sun by Loten (FanFiction.Net Profile)
Hermione/Severus
     AU, from Order of the Phoenix onwards. Hermione only wanted to learn Healing; she discovers that Professor Snape is a human being after all, and his actions dramatically shape the course of the war as events unfold.
     He shook his head emphatically. "Hell, no. I'm sure it will come as absolutely no surprise to you to learn that I utterly despise teaching, and the Headmaster is certainly not going to be in a hurry to welcome me back even if he lives that long. My Potions contract isn't in force any more and my Defence contract was only for one year, so I am under no obligation to return. As for what I will do..." He paused for a moment, and then said quietly, "That, Hermione, rather depends on you, I think." His black eyes were intent and unwavering, and the look in their dark depths sent a little shiver through her as her thoughts cleared and her emotions crystallised with almost painful clarity. Suddenly absolutely certain of her feelings, she smiled a little shakily at him in response, moving closer to him. "Good answer," she whispered, looking up at him.

Cliché by Alexis.Danaan (FanFiction.Net Profile)
Hermione/Severus
     Eight years after the end of the war Hermione does something that will change her world as she knows it.
     "Please, don't go, Severus." His body seemed to hunch in on itself even more, making a previously tall and proud looking man resemble something broken beyond repair, before he turned to look at her. He made no effort to hide the tears that glittered in his eyes and her heart ached in reaction. Severus Snape never cried, and if he did, he certainly never let anyone see. "I don't want to," he whispered, his voice barely carrying to her.

Heart Over Mind by Regann (Fanfiction.Net Profile)
Hermione/Severus
     Something odd about Hermione causes her to have unexpected reaction to a love potion. Only it's one which no one expected. How could a lack of reaction cause so much trouble? AU to Books 5 and 6.
     Suddenly, no one else in the room mattered to Hermione; Dumbledore, Pomfrey, Craig and even Harry faded away as her whole attention focused on Snape, on the fact that he was mere meters away from her, that he was breathing, that he lived despite all evidence to the contrary. In that first second, she'd been paralyzed, but then she was moving, hurtling herself toward at the precise moment he stepped toward her and they met somewhere in the middle of the room, Hermione flinging her arms around his neck and holding on as tightly as she could, unconcerned that there were tears running silently down her face, only aware of the fact that Snape was returning her desperate embrace, that his arms were wrapped around her waist, his face buried against neck, murmuring soft words she couldn't hear over the fast-paced beating of her own heart.

Just Let it Happen by La. Bel. LM (FanFiction.Net Profile)
Hermione/Severus
     For once in her life, Hermione Granger is faced with a problem that she does not know how to solve...
     For now, he allowed himself to settle into this mental space and simply... experience her. Her worries, her desires, her aspirations, her devotion and affection. For him. Her affection for him. He was momentarily stunned by the depth of it—and the pristine, unquestioning purity of it. Unsettling, but... and he admitted this without hesitation... wonderful.

Just to Be by Amarti (FanFiction.Net Profile)
Hermione/Severus
     Post-DH, EWE. Six years after the war, Hermione discovers a neglected and abused population with no place in a post-Voldemort world, and the man who stayed behind to pick up the pieces. A story of reconciliation, redemption, and above all, love.
     She cried for her own selfishness in wanting to not love him; she would be his companion and his lover but love was still frightening. She cried for her own jealousy that she would always be second to a woman who had spent Hermione's entire life in a pedestal. When flesh and memory are compared, the memory always wins, and that was what Lily was now - a memory.

One Day Like This by Hannah_1888 (Ashwinder Profile)
Hermione/Severus
     After suffering a setback, Hermione finds her life heading in a different direction.
     She heard him grumble unintelligibly under his breath and felt a such sudden rush of affection that she leaned over as far as she could, grabbed his chin, and planted a smacker of a kiss on his cheek, making a sound of satisfaction as she did so. His answering expression was one of such priceless horror that Hermione couldn't help but laugh heartily.

The Buried Life by Kalina Lea (FanFiction.Net Profile)
Hermione/Severus
     Harry disappears just before the start of his seventh year, and Hermione and Snape work together to find him.
     For I am sorry, Hermione. I have moved between Darkness and Light for so long that they have blended into shadow and I often cannot distinguish between them. Your young heart doesn't belong in the shadows. My only consolation lies in your strength - a strength I never dreamed of until I got to know you and felt it for myself. You will survive my loss as you have survived others.

Thirty-One Days by keelhaulrose (FanFiction.Net Profile)
Hermione/Severus
     In the midst of the Battle of Hogwarts Hermione is given the opportunity to help save Snape's life. Little did she know it would require visiting Hogwarts twenty years prior. She has thirty-one days to befriend the sullen Slytherin, and perhaps save his life. But, as always, things don't always go as planned.
     She had failed her mission. She would soon become one more person who had damaged Severus, part of the reason he was going to die on the floor of the Shrieking Shack. And it hurt, worse than she thought it would, because deep down she knew her feelings were shifting. She liked Severus, that part was obvious. But a rational woman did not carry on such a relationship, especially in a situation like hers, because they only liked the man. No, it was more than that, and she had to admit it, the way Severus had just admitted she was the most important person in his life at that moment. Somewhere, deep down, she was beginning to love him.
