Welcome to THE PETULANT POETESS, a moderated online fiction archive dedicated to both Harry Potter Fanfiction and Original Stories and Poetry.

The Petulant Poetess archive was founded by NotSoSaintly in April of 2005 with the idea of creating a friendly atmosphere, dedicated to guiding and encouraging budding authors as well as accommodating the more seasoned writer. Stories going through the moderation process receive a final polishing through communication with the author with the express intent of presenting quality stories for the reader. A list of hard-working admins who contribute their free time out of love for the craft of writing and helping others may be found on the About Us page.

So grab a story off the shelf, pull up a chair, and get comfortable; the library is open, the tea (or coffee if you prefer) is hot, and everyone is welcome.

Please note that access to adult-rated stories requires a membership, which is restricted to people over the age of majority. View our Terms of Use and Compliance Statement for more information. Our Submission Rules are readily available to all writers who wish to post with us.

The Petulant Snape Boy Strikes
We recently fell in love with a young gentleman, who we affectionately call Petulant Snape Boy. Yes, he is snarky and a bit of a git sometimes, but he is also so adorable that we can't help but want to put him in our pocket and take him with us wherever we go.
The problem is... he is a bit of a mystery to us.
This, oh dear writers of TPP, is where you come in. We need your help! Tell us: Is PSB a young Severus Snape? Is he a progeny of our beloved Potions master? Why is he so irritated? What is up with his dog?
We want to know it all!
The deadline for entries is Midnight GMT on 31 August 2013.
