Fic list, Historical Snarry

A lot of people have been searching for Historical Snarry, so I have started a list of fics. Any others you know of, please feel free to add in the comments with summaries if you have them, especially the time line :)

Last update Dec 2 2012. I think I have fixed any broken or missing links now and added a couple of stories that I didn't have before.

Historical Snarry

What fits for this list

Alternate realities where Snape and Harry are in the past, Ancient Rome, 18th Century England etc. Can have magic or not.
Time Travel where both of them spend a significant part of the fic in the past

NO time travel to the Maurader's era.
NO time travel if just one of them travel to the past
Fics should be from 1970 backwards (so yes time travel to Tom Riddle or Grindelwald's timelines fits)

The list is not alphabetical, but the ones most recently added are at the top of the list. New means new to this list, not necessarily a new story.

All fics should be Snarry :)

you're very welcome :)

I don't know whether you consider Severus Snape and the Ghostwritten Romance to be Snarry or not, but I do. (I see the Draco thing as a side romance, since the important part is Harry learning that he loves Severus.)
Jul. 21st, 2008 03:55 pm (UTC)
I haven't read it, so I'm not sure, LOL! Does Harry end up with Snape at the end of the fic? If so, than I think that would be Snarry in my mind :)

take care,

It does indeed, I've added that one, thanks :)

Kind of off-topic...

It is me, sev0109! I changed my name and accidentally deleted my friends-of list and I was wondering if you can add me again?

I am not sure if people saw my post before I deleted everyone who friended me.

I also wanted to catch up on your fics and I would love to be added again. Sorry for any inconvenience.

EDIT: Thank you for the list. I have been looking for some snarry with that uniqueness of timetravel ^.^

Jan. 14th, 2009 05:33 pm (UTC)
Thanks, I've now added that one :) Sorry it took so long!
Aug. 17th, 2009 12:33 am (UTC)
Wow! what a great list!

Cloistered by Sioban Parker on Walking the Plank would fit nicely with this list.

How about Impression by Iago96

Harold Potter isn't best pleased when his father announces his engagement to a total stranger. What will Harry do to ensure his happiness in marriage? SNARRY. Regency?
Aug. 19th, 2010 09:47 pm (UTC)
AH! Onward to Discovery no longer has that link! *sobs* Is there somewhere else I could get it?

This is kinda belated but...did you find it? If not here's another link to it
Feb. 3rd, 2011 05:36 am (UTC)
hey sweetie, not even sure if you're still updating this list, but I went to re-read The Ballad of Dürnstein Jail and found that the link is no longer valid. I found the fic on Rakina's personal journal if you want to update it :-)

Nov. 2nd, 2011 11:21 pm (UTC)
Would Know Thine Heart by necromanticnoir qualify? It's Regency Snarry.
Feb. 2nd, 2012 03:50 pm (UTC)
