[sticky post] Powerful/Strong Hermione Fics

For all of us who are fans of, as pstibbons has named it, the Grangerverse, this is a list of fics where a shamelessly kickass Hermione takes center stage. Magically, politically, intellectually (that's a given) or just personality-wise, in these stories, Hermione is in some way powerful.

I'll gladly take recommendations, but I won't include anything that is poorly written. ("Poorly written" is left to my discretion; if you'd like to create a list with fics I don't include, go for it.)

Ooh, fic recs. Sweet. I've only read about half of these.

Another story that comes to mind immediately is The Twenty, by Leyna Rountree. It's on fanfiction.net and the site isn't cooperating so I don't have a link handy, but Hermione is the very definition of kickass in it.
Sep. 23rd, 2007 05:15 pm (UTC)
That's right! I read that one while it was first being posted. I'll have to add it. :-)

I don't know which fics you haven't read on this list, but I really really really recommend Keogh. It's amazing.
Oct. 2nd, 2007 01:07 am (UTC)
Finding Himself

Summary: 'The boy who almost died' has to figure out what it means that he didn't. Harry's tulmultous fifth year at Hogwarts is Cedric's seventh and final. Bound together by a shared trauma survived, both boys fall under Ministry suspicion and fire, and both undergo a 'deconstruction' of sorts in the face of that crisis. Who is Cedric Diggory? He must find himself amid rumors of war, the awkwardness of falling in love, and a crippling personal tragedy. (parallel canon) COMPLETE

WARNING: This tale contains ADULT situations and imagery. Don't want to get too specific and give away surprises, but just ... be aware.

Genres: Coming-of-age, action-adventure, romance
Characters: Like any novel, this one involves an ensemble cast, but the central protagonist is Cedric, not Harry, which naturally skews the focus so that some characters important to the books are less important here while others barely mentioned become significant secondaries. At least initially, all romances reflect canon. (eventual Cedric/Hermione)

Awards: Gilded Grangers 2007, The Goblets 2007, Quill to Parchment 2007 Judges' Choice: Pairings


Cedric is really the "hero" (protag) of the story, but Hermione plays a pretty important role and is presented as capable all on her own. What I really like about it is that it builds their relationship really realistically. It's not some magic "love at first sight" and they both have real human flaws and make mistakes. It's just all around a really terrific story, and exceptionally well-written for a fic. (The author says she's a professional author in RL, and after reading the story, I believe it. It reads like a pro novel, not a fanfic.)

I am just completely in love with this story, and the Hermione (and Cedric) she writes about.

Oct. 2nd, 2007 01:25 am (UTC)
I haven't read any updates to Finding Himself since about chapter 20. I'll reread it, and if Hermione's a big enough focus in the story, I'll add it to the list. (From what I remember, it's mostly Cedric, and I want Hermione-focused fics for this list; however, my memory may be faulty in this case.)
Dec. 20th, 2008 12:23 pm (UTC)
I stumbled across this from a link in FictionAlley. First, I'm glad someone has finally started putting together a list of Powerful Hermione fics; I know I'm a big fan of them and have been meaning to get my bookmarks in order sometime to do a list (a rather scary task).

I noticed you have a couple of ones from scifichick774 (love all of her stuff); she has a new one called Harem located at http://community.livejournal.com/kris_fic/54428.html#cutid1

Also, I noticed you have Dangerous by BlackLotus. She does a wonderful job writing Hermione and if you enjoy that fic, you would probably also enjoy Need the Storm, located at http://grangerenchanted.com/enchant/viewstory.php?sid=907&ageconsent=ok&warning=1

You might have already read both of these, but if you haven't, they are definitely worth reading and adding to your list.
Dec. 20th, 2008 08:54 pm (UTC)
I simply adore all of scifichick774's Hermione fic; if I listed all of the amazing ones, half this list would be just her fic! Same with blacklotus. Perhaps I should also add a list of authors who love Hermione as much as I do...
Feb. 28th, 2009 11:57 pm (UTC)
A suggestion, please please read!

Ball and Chain, by scifichick774. A very smart, smartarse Hermione!

I don't believe it's complete...
Apr. 7th, 2009 02:52 am (UTC)
I think I love you.
I've been searching for 'Mum Always Said I Couldn't Carry A Tune' for about 6 months, but without the title, I was lost. Thanks ever so much for including it here.
Jan. 26th, 2011 05:27 am (UTC)
Thanks for the list!
Thank you so much for compiling a list like this. These are exactly the sort of fics I like to read, and it's so gratifying to have Hermione recognised for the awesome force of nature she is.

I have one recommendation for you (which is still Harry-centric but has Hermione in a gratifyingly large role) called 'Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality'. It is my favourite HP fanfic and I hope you will give it a try.

It is a currently ongoing Peggy Sue AU and on FF.net.
Jan. 29th, 2011 02:17 pm (UTC)
Re: Thanks for the list!
I read Methods of Rationality up until... I don't know, chapter 33 or so? Then I lost interest. I mean, it was interesting, but... oh, I don't know what I'm trying to say.

New fic
Hey! I don't know if you're still adding fics to this list, but one you should definitely consider adding is Vera Rozalsky's Amends, or Truth and Reconciliations. It's a phenomenal fic, rather long and part of an intense series of post-war complexities, and I'm equally fond of what the author does with Neville. It's on fanfiction and, even if you don't add it to your list, I definitely recommend checking out all of her stuff.

The Wrath of Hermione
I would love to read this because I have always loved how Pstibbons portrays Hermione but I am unable to find it anywhere. Anyone got a copy?
