Hmm...

Does anyone know of any good, plotty HP/BtVS crossovers? I've read a bunch on TtH, but it seems that they're all short or incomplete. And, of course, the ones on FF.net are crap.

Speaking of crossovers, I have two ideas that I think could be interesting. Who knows? Maybe I'll actually write something worthwhile next year. :-)


1) Harry moves to Sunnydale fic. Now, before you write this off, let me explain! It would go AU from the beginning of OotP. At his Misuse of Underage Magic hearing, Harry is expelled from Hogwarts. Hermione puts him in touch with her parents; after all, what does the Ministry of Magic care what Muggles do? They help him get on his feet in the Muggle world, and later act as go-between for the Hogwarts crew. Harry (and Sirius) leave Britain, since Harry can't really protect himself without a wand, and neither he nor Sirius want to spend the rest of their lives locked up in Grimmauld Place. They end up in Sunnydale, where Harry meets Willow, since he really needs a tutor to help him catch up with his Muggle schooling. And, of course, they all meet Buffy later and crazy things happen.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch Hogwarts, Hermione has gotten fed up with the corruption in the Magical government. She starts drifting away from Ron, since without Harry there to act as a buffer, they fight more than ever. (And since you should all know me by now, you won't be surprised to hear that Ron won't be more than a bit character in this fic.) She spends more time in the library, where she meets a few Muggleborn Ravenclaws and Hufflepuffs. They form a "club" to discuss the differences between Muggleborn/raised and Purebloods. After Umbridge dissolves all clubs, they meet in secret, and a few Purebloods join (obviously, this is the alt version of the DA). There are students from all Houses represented; after all, not all Slytherins are evil, and power and ambition are always attractive. What's more ambitious than trying to completely alter a society? (I'm considering Blaise/Hermione, at least for a short while. They're teenagers. Unlike JKR, I'm not delusional enough to think that people meet their soulmates while still in school.)

That's all I have for right now. If anyone has any ideas, I'll be glad to listen.


2) This one's a bit more angsty than the first. It's a post-DH (but pre-epilogue) Hermione fic. After the war, Hermione's feeling a bit at sea. Her friends are planning on becoming Aurors, but Hermione's tired of fighting. She's just restored her parents' memories, and they, understandably, are furious. She decides to spend some time away from Britain and just wander for a bit.

Since we were finally given official dates in DH, we know that without tweaking the timeline, the end of DH (not including the epilogue) corresponds to the end of season 2 of BtVS. Well, a bit later; I believe that the "final battle" happened in June. Figure a few weeks for Hermione to make arrangements and finish her business in Australia, and she could be in the States by end of July/beginning of August. Hermione ends up in Sunnydale before Buffy returns from LA. She comes across a group of teenagers fighting vampires, and, since she's Hermione (and one who's just been through a war), she helps. Unlike the first fic, which is more political and action, this fic is more about Hermione healing from the war and coming to terms with her actions and her losses. I'm not sure if I'll stay with canon 'ships or not; probably not, since I really can't stand Ron/Hermione, but I'll figure that out if I decide to write it.

But... *wibble* okay, scratch that. Ron in the books is meh. But the set up for 1) could really make him to his own character. Fighting for himself, his own way, becoming a self sufficiant human being. Probably a little worse for wear, without his friends, but managing just fine anyways. Though probably more a quiet life. Resitance to the system by consistantly being different.
The beauty of the AU being that Ron could morph from annoying and bland to interesting what with all the room to grow. (one of my enternal frustrations with the books will always be the lack of growth in certain areas. I mean, yes it's a children's book. But kids are waaaay smarter than that.)


2)Is really interesting to me. Because I see the Scoobies as equals in terms of age, but the Harry Potter people are more kids. So reversing that age dynamic... I like it.
Hermione makes a good mentor. Kind of, I don't think she'd be really in a position to mentor anyone at that point.
The thought of her as an old warrior really is appealing to me. And I think - again - something that was left out of the books too much.
Could be nice Ron/Hermione break up story, too. Because, you know, things are different after a fight. And they really aren't all grown up yet. Things do change (and god does that whole high school sweethearts thing set my teeth on edge. Too much damn sugar).


You'd also need a bit of backstory why there isn't a Ministry of Magic elsewhere. Eh. The Magical side of the States as the equivalent of post communist eastern europe. Or post colonial africa. Or something.
A Dark Angel kind of world for the magical people.

So I saw that USA is running the first season of NCIS, and I automatically thought of you and the Kate/AJ fic you'd written. I tracked it down via ff.net and just re-read "Curiousity." That was such a wonderful story! :)

OMG! I just--I mean, literally, just, as in two minutes ago--noticed that they were doing that! It made me all nostalgic for my show. *sniffle*

I'm glad you still enjoy that fic! It's always good to hear that. :-)

there's one currently in progress (and that's actually being updated frequently) on ff.net that I actually think is quite good (was never a Buffy person so I can't say how well those characters are written persay). Anyway its mostly HP (you'll notice below no mention of the cross over), as its oddly enough a SSHG marriage law fic (shockingly well done and void of most cliches), and the Buffy characters only come into play because Hermione spent time in America after the war, learned wandless magic from them, and now wants to start going back to help them learn wanded magic... so there's a big cross over part in the middle, and now they're back and coming up close to the wedding date (as of last update...)

Anyway - here's the link and the blurbs - go see for yourself but I've been pleasantly surprised (but then I've been sick with sinus and ear infections for about a month now and am about to read any fanfic regardless of quality to keep from going crazy - so my review may not mean a lot at the moment)

Category: Harry Potter
Title: A Proper Romance
Genre: Romance/Humor
Rating: Fiction Rated: T
Summary: My version of WIKTT's Marriage Law. Snape's nicer, but still
in character. Yes, it can be done! Hermione's an adult, trying to move on
from her grief. Comfort, healing, and romance await. Come, read, and see if you agree with over 1000 positive reviews!

Anyway - sorry for the long post - but I had to share (especially since I just found your WONDERFUL JAG fanfics here recently... are you planning on writing anymore JAG/HP or JAG/NCIS/HP? Those were shockingly good (I don't typically like crossovers, but every once in a while there are some that are just brilliant like that. OH - and a request (to anyone who writes for your Heroine Addict site) for the addition of some Gibbs/Abby to the NCIS section! Then it would be a perfect site (what can I say - I don't go for much older men in real life (though if Colin Firth wants to come sweep me off my feet he's welcome to any day) but I keep going for the odd age pairings in all my fandoms - AJ/Mac, Gibbs/Abby, Severus/Hermione)
