WHITE HOUND FAN FICTION LINKS:
This is a list of stories which I personally find interesting and well-done. The majority of them are Harry Potter-verse stories about Snape, because he's the character who interests me most, and life is too short to plough through all the stories looking for gems. [Recommendations for additons to the list will be gratefully received - but they only get added if they appeal to me personally!]
The main reason I chose to put up my own links page, instead of using e.g. the C2 system on www.fanfiction.net, was because I wanted to be able to include brief reviews, other than the summaries which accompany ffic stories, and which are so restricted as to length that they are seldom very informative.
Also, this is something of an antidote to all the moderated fan-fic sites out there. All the ones I've encountered so far base their acceptance or refusal of a story purely on whether it adheres to a very narrow and usually American grammatical style-book. They reject any kind of experimental writing (which de facto includes about a third of modern British writing, since the experimental style is mainstream here), whilst happily accepting stories which are boring, out-of-character or blatant Mary Sues so long as they conform to that rigid and narrow criterion. The worst offenders are Sycophant.hex because they don't even know the rules of grammar, beyond what might be taught in kindergarten, and their "corrections" frequently result in a story ending up less grammatically-correct than it started.
The tales on this list, therefore, are chosen as a professional editor would choose them - on the basis of being well-written, involving, in character and original. Stories will not be rejected on the basis of bad spelling or grammar unless they are so extreme that they make the text hard to read - since if these stories were to be professionally published those are minor issues easily corrected.
