10 Fics I'd Save in Case of Mass Deletion

[info]cluegirl recently prompted us to choose 10 HP fanfics we would grab in the case of a mass deletion of fic (*glares at LJ*). I have chosen 10 fics. :-) This represents something of an order. All of the following are Snarry. I'm sure you're all shocked.

10. Oft in Mercy by switchknife (NC-17; Warnings: Chanslash, phobophilia, dubious consent, object insertion, mild breathplay, D/s, humiliation, dirty talk and sadism.)
Snape has his ways of curing Gryffindor recklessness. Even if the Gryffindors in question don't always appreciate it.

I really wish I had been around when switchknife was in fandom. The writing makes me swoon; it does. I love the particular hatred, breaking nature of the Snarry represented here.

9. If That Mockingbird Don't Sing by Aspen (NC-17, Warnings: dubcon, BDSM, chan)
Severus Snape, headmaster of an all-boys Hogwarts, must punish one who proves to be not-so-innocent.

C'mon. It's the staple for Snarry chan lovers everywhere. It's so bloody hot.

8. Running by [info]captain_tulip (NC-17; Warnings: dubcon, mental illness, darkish)

I love the dystopia feeling of this. It's beautifully written and characterized.

7. Two Lockets by [info]sinick and [info]ac1d6urn (R)
Harry, Snape, and the grim old house that keeps its secrets.

The imagery is perfect and the writing flawless.

6.Crazy Man Michael by [info]amanuensis (NC-17; Warning: character death)
"O, where is the raven that I struck down dead?"

How could I not include something of Amanuensis'? I love the Harry/HBP component.

5. If You Are Prepared by Cybele (NC-17; Warnings: character death, chan)

I was wary of rec'ing this because I've only read it once and probably won't ever again, but it really fueled by love for the ship, and I'd probably be an idiot not to have it on hand.

4. Confession by [info]venivincere (NC-17; Warnings: non-con, chan, spanking)
Snape isn't a slut. He isn't

I absolutely love this. This is my kinks personified. I probably re-read this piece several times a week. I'm so obsessed with it, and I know at one point Veni was thinking of doing an arc. I'd pay good money to break into her harddrive. *grabs [info]venivincere and begs*

3. Every Time You Leave by [info]mia_ugly (NC-17)
Snape sees his life as a series of departures.

The passion is so fucking wonderful. The build-up of anticipation keels me.

2. In Between Days by [info]atrata (NC-17; Warnings: dubcon, chan)
AmbiguouslyTrustworthy!Snape kidnaps ClinicallyDepressed!Harry to keep him safe, but nothing is quite what it seems.

Because she writes Snape like no one else.

1. The Tea Series by Telanu (somniesperus (NC-17)
(Okay, if I had to choose one fic from the series, it would be AWS)

I can never quite replace this as my top Snarry story no matter what I read. :-)


And, like others have said, there are so mnay authors and works I could have chosen, but I tried to make a list of the ones that I go back to or really stick out in my mind. There's two patterns: hot chan PWPs and amazing novels.
