Hermione smarter (by potterpuffs)

Help, please?

I don't expect many replies, since most of you don't seem to be big Harry Potter fans, but I figured I'd ask anyway.

I'm trying to compile a list of powerful!Hermione fics. That is, fics where Hermione is strong in some way--be it magically or just her personality. I have a bunch already, but considering that there are some genres I don't read (like Ron/Hermione romance), I could use some help.

So, any really good Hermione fics out there? The only requirements I have are decent writing, and a strong Hermione as the main character.

HP fic irritants

You wanna know one of my biggest pet peeves in Harry Potter fanfic? (Besides naming Hermione's parents Dan and Emma in Harry/Hermione fics, I mean.)

It's that everything good created by Muggles--from buildings to art to literature--has to have actually been made by wizards.

The first time I saw it, I thought, "Oh, that's interesting." And the thing is, for that fic, it worked. It wasn't an offhanded, smug, "Wizards are so much better OMG!" comment.

But I swear to all that it holy, the next time I see "Shakespeare/Tolkien/da Vinci was a wizard, didn't you know?" I will scream.
