Snapeslash was a Harry Potter Yahoo! Group devoted to fanworks and discussion about Severus Snape slash (i.e., Snape paired with any other male character).

Severus Snape... head of Slytherin, Potions Master, and potential sex god. He of the greasy hair. Nasty, but not evil. How we love him! This list is for fans of Snapeslash, and all fic and discussions are welcome. As adult material may be posted, please do not join if you are under legal age or otherwise prohibited from accessing such materials.[2]


Snapeslash was founded by Jen on November 3, 2000. It gained over 3,700 members[2] before it was deleted unexpectedly in August 2005. The Snapesmut list was created as a replacement shortly after its deletion but never reached comparable popularity.[3]

The mailing list gave rise to both the Ink Stained Fingers archive and the Snape Slash Fleet. Notable members of the list include Telanu, Titti, and JayKay.
