I've never heard of it before, but thought I'd try...even tho I'm not the best at making entries to my LJ every day.

First Challenge: In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator.

I think my favorite of all my stories is Changing the Epilogue.

It was written for the 2007 [livejournal.com profile] sshg_exchange for [livejournal.com profile] lowlands_girl. The prompt was: It's five/ten/fifteen years after the war. For some reason or another, Snape's presence is needed. Hermione has to go back in time and manage to save him without giving herself away, and there should be a real risk of her running into Harry, Ron, and her younger self.

This story was written with Deathly Hallows open next to me. It was in some ways very hard and in others easy. I was very motivated to get it right...to make the time travel plausible, to try to keep them in character (which I'm not sure I succeeded so much with Severus), to try to make their closeness happen naturally.

I also enjoy re-reading Detours and Roadblocks. Hermione and Severus in a race (halfway) around the world. Written for [livejournal.com profile] florahart for the Christmas 2006 [livejournal.com profile] sshg_exchange.

Prompt #59: Severus and Hermione are teamed up on a reality show and have to work together. Snarking and happy ending are good. Crisis and problems a must. Not AU, canon still applies.

I added our heroes to the only reality show I was familiar with at that time, The Amazing Race. I used the recaps over at Television Without Pity (sadly, no longer there) to help me. I like this fic more than others seem to, based on the views at AO3. The idea of Snape and Hermione teaming up and doing the crazy things that TAR puts the contestants through was like catnip to me. Sadly, I think folks might have liked it better if it was Survivor or something else. Unfortunately, I am not a fan of reality shows. :(

Third is The Life Debt also written for the [livejournal.com profile] sshg_exchange in 2011 for [livejournal.com profile] melenka.

Original Prompt: When she opens a Muggle romance novel, Hermione is horrified to discover that the heroine is a toothy, insufferable, know-it-all with delusions of being the champion of the downtrodden. Even worse, the hero appears to be ill-favored, ill-tempered, and yet superior to the heroine in every way. Despite all that, she can't seem to put it down. Attempts to find out more about the author lead to a dead end, so Hermione devotes her considerable intelligence to discovering who is behind this awful piece of slanderous writing. Please include excerpts from the offensive and compelling novel.

Summary: Hermione receives a pre-publication copy of the latest Lucy Manfred romance novel which includes uncanny similarities to certain episodes in her life which she would rather keep private. Will the journey to discover who sent the book and why lead to Hermione’s own happy ending?

I loved writing this story. My #1 beta reader, [livejournal.com profile] islandsmoke was sooo helpful while I was wrestling it into shape. I tried for a bit of everything--humor, angst, love, loss...and I think I succeeded.

Lastly, I couldn't leave out some of the best (again, if you go by the hits on AO3, heh) PWP I've ever written, The Red Dress. Written for the 2011 Mini-fest on Live Journal. Prompt #155-Hermione's Red Dress.

Summary: Hermione bought the dress on a whim, then forgot all about it. When the Minister demands her presence at the Ministry’s Yule Ball, “Operation, Granger: Belle of the Ball” begins. A Happy Ending is guaranteed.

It's HG/SS/LM and so very naughty. But in a good way. I had to grab my hubby several times while writing this one. Hee.
