A Holiday with the Headmaster [MA (NC-17)] by MMADfan
[Reviews - 105] Favorite - 46
Category: HARRY POTTER FANFICTION > Hogwarts Castle
Characters: Albus Dumbledore, Minerva McGonagall
Genres: Drama, Erotica, Humor, Romance     Warnings: Explicit Sexual Content
Summary: Albus and Minerva take a holiday before the onset of the school year. Set in late August 1957. A restful retreat of a story, romantic and lemony. Take a little holiday! Part of the Resolving a Misunderstanding universe, but it's not necessary to be familiar with that story to enjoy this one. Not DH-compliant.

A Long Vernal Season [M (R)] by MMADfan
[Reviews - 1165] Favorite - 98
Category: HARRY POTTER FANFICTION > Hogwarts Castle
Characters: Albus Dumbledore, Filius Flitwick, Hermione Granger, Minerva McGonagall, Poppy Pomfrey, Severus Snape
Genres: Alternate Universe, Drama, Mystery/Suspense, Romance     Warnings: none
Summary: Severus Snape had believed that, for him, life after the Dark Lord was an impossibility, that his death was not merely justice, but necessity. He has survived, though, and now he must learn to live his new, unexpected life, and to find something beyond the narrow existence to which he was once bound. A Snape-centric post-war fic.

A Death’s Dominion sequel, but may stand alone. Not DH-compliant. DH-disregarded. Rated M for overall content. Much of it is "T," but the ratings rise to MA later for a reason, hence the switch to an M-rating for the earlier chapters. Watch the individual chapter summaries and author’s notes for ratings, warnings, and the characters appearing in that chapter.

Part One finds Severus dealing with some very immediate and dangerous consequences of his final confrontation with the Dark Lord more than three months before.

A Second Chance For Happiness [M (R)] by star_girl
[Reviews - 176] Favorite - 45
Category: HARRY POTTER FANFICTION > Weasley's Wizarding Wheezes
Characters: Albus Severus Potter, Ginevra Weasley, Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, James Potter, James Potter (son of Harry), Lily Potter (daughter of Harry), Ronald Weasley, Severus Snape
Genres: Angst, Drama, Romance     Warnings: **DH SPOILERS**
Summary: Life does not always turn out the way we want it to. Ten years after the Battle of Hogwarts, Severus Snape, thought by everyone to be dead, is living out his days in solitude on the edge of the wizarding world. Ginny Potter, meanwhile, is juggling a high-profile career, three small children, a Kneazle and a workaholic husband. A family crisis within the Potter household unwittingly brings Snape out of hiding and his and Ginny's lives are changed forever, with both of them ultimately offered a second chance for happiness. This story is mostly canon compliant but discounts the epilogue in Deathly Hallows.

A response to the Potter Place Winter Prompt Challenge #22. A third place winner in the Potter Place Challenge, and a featured story at SH Occlumency for November 2007. Not DH-compliant. Completely disregards DH.

Death's Dominion [M (R)] by MMADfan
[Reviews - 642] Favorite - 158
Category: HARRY POTTER FANFICTION > Hogwarts Castle
Category: HARRY POTTER FANFICTION > Potions Under Duress
Characters: Albus Dumbledore, Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Minerva McGonagall, Poppy Pomfrey, Severus Snape
Genres: Alternate Universe, Drama, Friendship, General, Mystery/Suspense, Psychological     Warnings: none
Summary: Severus Snape’s life was changed when he was hit by an errant spell, and he comes to a decision that defies Dumbledore’s wishes. Even the fate of the wizarding world is altered by this one ill-cast curse and Snape’s subsequent resolve. Long after the spell itself has dissipated, its effects continue echoing in the lives of Severus, Albus, Minerva, and Hermione, and they bring with them a shadowy figure whom Snape does not trust and whose motivations and influence on Minerva are murky. Conspiracies and schemes swirl around Severus as he continues on his path of deception to his final confrontation with the Dark Lord.
Canon-divergent post-July 1996 in the HP universe. Not DH-compliant. (Partially HBP-compliant.)

A “Light” fic of love, loyalty, and redemption.

Pertinent warnings in individual chapter summaries.

Genres: Angst     Warnings: Explicit Sexual Content, Language, Violence
Summary: Minerva McGonagall is a bright, talented witch with dreams of becoming the first woman in the Auror corps. Albus Dumbledore is famous, brilliant, flawed, and more than forty years her senior. Their love-affair will change their lives in ways neither anticipates and places them in the sights of the man who will become the greatest threat the wizarding world has ever known. Warning: Teacher/student (of age)

Category: HARRY POTTER FANFICTION > Potions Under Duress
Characters: Albus Dumbledore, Dolores Jane Umbridge, Draco Malfoy, Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Lucius Malfoy, Severus Snape, Tom Riddle (Voldemort)
Genres: Angst, Romance     Warnings: none
Summary: Hermione wants to learn Occlumency, but Severus Snape is not known for his generous nature. Both may learn more than they bargained for before the tale ends. This is canon-compliant with books 5 and 6 and provides a behind-the-scenes story that JKR never even guessed...
