Fic Recs: September 8, 2022

Phew. It's been a hot minute. (And I do mean hot—as I write, it's over 100 °F/80 °C for the fourth consecutive day chez Squibstress.)

My fic reading and reccing has fallen way, way behind, but I recently finished two longer pieces that desperately need reccing, both of which feature unusual takes on familiar tropes and characters.

As Potter Is to Snape
by ScarlettWriter91
Characters: Albus Dumbledore, Draco Malfoy, Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Minerva McGonagall, Petunia Dursley (née Evans), Remus Lupin, Ron Weasley, Severus Snape, Sirius Black, Vernon Dursley
Pairings: Albus/Minerva

Severus Snape has agreed to take in Harry Potter during the summer before his Third Year. Temporarily. Just until the end of summer and not a day longer. But secrets about Harry’s home life are being revealed and things are changing too fast for Harry to keep up. Can he and Snape survive their time together? If not, it’s going to make for a very long summer. I’ve moved up the blowing up of Marge to the very beginning of summer.
