About

Welcome to the about page. Here you will discover what a fanlisting is, as well as how this one was made.

What is a Fanlisting?

"A fanlisting is simply an online list of fans of a subject, such as a TV show, actor, or musician, that is created by an individual and open for fans from around the world to join. There are no costs, and the only requirements to join a fanlisting are your name and country. Fanlistings do not have to be large sites (although some are), they are just a place where you can sign up with other fans." - TFL.org

What is this Fanlisting about?

This fanlisting is, in the words of TFL, for Harry Potter Series: Granger, Hermione and Severus Snape - adult (Fanfiction: Relationships). So, basically, it's for adult fan-fiction that centres around the pairing of Hermione Granger and Severus Snape.

Why 'You Never Thought It Would End Like This'

The title of this site was actually suggested by Sebastian. I ended up choosing it because it implies a lot and yet doesn't tell you anything specific. There are lots of ways that phrase could be interpreted, which mirrors the many, many ways that the Hermione/Severus relationship is interpreted in fan-fiction =)

Site Details

This site was created and is maintained by me, Lorraine. The site initially just covered adult fan-fiction but was expanded to include het fan-fiction when Mary chose me as the new owner of the het fan-fiction fanlisting in August 2008, so thanks to her =)
This is version 1.0 of the site, and I'll be the first to admit that it's a bit rubbish *sigh* Coming up with a layout was slightly problematic because I didn't want to use any images in which Hermione is underage, which cut out any book or movie images. In the end, I went for an rather unspecific image taken from Getty Images.
The layout was created using Notepad and Paint Shop Pro 7. The various fonts used throughout are Verdana, Arial, PMingLiU, Pea XOXO from Karen, Enchanted Prairie Dog and Amethyst Zucchini. Lyrics are by Nine Inch Nails, and a brush by 77words is also used.
The image codes were mostly created from fan art, and I would like to extend a huge thanks to the artists who allowed me to use their work:
Alisa aka CanonFodder
Melanie aka Usagistu
