Summary: Imagine Petunia had treated Harry well instead of being an evil b****. Imagine she would've hidden the Wizarding World from Harry in an attempt to protect him from Voldemort. Harry and Dudley grew up as brothers, not one spoilt and the other neglected but equal and normal. What would happen when the Hogwarts letter arrives, delivered by none other than our loved Potions Master?

Suggestions
  • Harry has a place at Dudley's school and is excited to go there with him but when he realizes the truth about his parents' death and the Wizarding World he'd rather go to Hogwarts. But he feels like it would be a betrayal of Petunia and he doesn't want to be separated from Dudley for a whole school year.
  • Vernon could still be resentful about Harry taking Dudley's limelight, even though his family doesn't see it like that. In small gestures he would try to show Harry that he does not in fact consider him part of his family. So Harry would never see him as his father the way he sees his aunt as a mother.
  • Snape convinces the Dursleys to let Harry go to Hogwarts and promises to protect him from any harm.
  • Petunia remembers Snape and even though she does not like him, she knows he loved Lily and trusts him to take care of Harry - I would like to see a serious conversation between them, where Petunia makes Snape see Harry as his own person and not his parents' (not just James!) son alone.
  • If you make this story long I'd really like to see how Snape becomes a mentor and someone to look up to. He should be the father figure that Vernon refused to be for Harry. But as the Dursleys accept Harry, he would not adopt him.

    Bonus
  • If you don't vilify any of the Dursleys, including Vernon. It is entirely normal for some people to see a foster/adopted child as less deserving than their own flesh and blood, especially if you are only related to them through marriage. It makes Vernon ignorant, not evil.
  • Summary: PostHogwarts. Harry is a grown wizard when unexpectedly the Death Eaters gather together to have their revenge. Snape shows up unexpectedly alive to warn and protect Harry Potter and any family he may have. Just why does Snape think he needs protecting?
    Summary: What if Voldemort’s most loyal supporters—the Lestranges and Crouch Jr—had never been caught?

    Must have:
    - At least one of the above characters plotting to bring back Voldemort.
    - The plan involves Harry.
    - Set pre-Hogwarts.
    - If kidnapping, a realistic way of getting around the wards.
    - Severus obviously interrupts/gets wind of/stumbles in on the plan somehow …

    Can’t have:
    - Slash
    - Character bashing
    - Manipulative/uncaring/not-very-nice!Dumbledore
    Summary: Severus is made into Harry's slave by some means. Doesn't mean he has to accept it.
    Summary: I would like for someone to write a story with Harry and Severus are brothers. You decide how they find out they are brothers and what age at which Harry is. I would like Harry to eventually go out with Oliver Wood it is not needed.
    Summary: Post-war AU. Dumbledore and Snape never died. Harry defeated the Dark Lord, but some death eaters are still on the loose and they want Harry, as well as Snape for his treachery against Voldemort. As a way of protecting them, giving them a break from fighting, and giving one of his boys a better childhood, Dumbledore sends them into hiding with another order member, with either Snape or Harry de-aged to better disguise them. Which one is de-aged and to what age is up to the you, as is where they end up going. A crossover is cool if you want to write one, but not necessary. Optional variation: both are de-aged and the order member is their new guardian. The preferred order member is Kingsley Shacklebolt, but any one will do. Must have at least one use of the 'thumb of comfort' (If anyone wants to know what this is, message me in the shoutbox).
    Summary: In Harry's 1st year harry finds out he was stolen from his real parents his brother happens to be Lucius Malfoy the parents are still alive harry real name is different the potter's are alive with two older children the potter's treat harry with love harry stays with Severus while the courts case is on. the potter's eldest is the boy who lived harry at first is in Grifindore who most turn on him except for Ginny,the Weasley twins,Neville,and his adopted brother and sister so he is resorted end up in slytherin harry is really a girl descised as a boy by the person who stole her and the potters adopted her from a magical orphanage/children's home
    Summary: In which Snape and Harry bond and find common ground over a hobby or interest they discover they share. Could be anything: reading, horseback riding, tattoos, flying, stargazing, painting or drawing, for example. What the hobby/interest is and when the story takes place is the writer's choice.
    Summary: Harry Potter brings Severus Snape back from the dead. Why? For what purpose? How? Is Snape grateful or angry? Does he have a hard time coping with it, or does he move on? Does Harry have to take care of him after he comes back, or does Snape even need taking care of? Has Harry brought the man back to pay a debt, because he loves him, to help him with a problem, for some other reason, or just because?

    Ideas (not required)

    - Some of the story takes place somewhere other than Hogwarts (ie Hogsmeade, Diagonalley, London, Ministry of Magic, or other)
    - They are somehow related (you decide if they knew it or not)
    - Harry takes care of Snape
    - Snape takes care of Harry
    - They are somehow tied together because of whatever Harry did to bring Snape back (this may be a foreseen or unforeseen consequence).
    - Snape is pissed because he was pulled away from Lily.
    - Snape was sent back because they knew he had more work to do.

    THE ONLY REQUIREMENT FOR THIS CHALLENGE: There must be NO flashbacks. I don't want to read a chapter from Harry's point of view and then read the same scene from Snape's point of view. I also don't want to see any of this: **FLASHBACK** If there must be a flashback, do it tastefully.
    Summary: Harry has been raising a deaged Severus and is attempting to teach Severus all the things he (Harry)likes to do; i.e. Quidditch and flying. However, despite multiple attempts Harry cannot convince Severus to like these things.

    Summary: The one event that's not covered in History of Magic comes to Hogwarts- the Black Death. Who will die, who will be scared, who will lose everything close to them? How does this affect Muggleborns who know about it?
