Summary: Snape survives the Deathly Hallows, but forgets how to do magic. With Harry teaching Defence Against the Dark Arts, how are things going to turn out?
Summary: Fed up with the Dursleys and their treatment, Harry runs away. All would have been fine if he hadn't managed to run into Severus Snape. Must-Have: The Dursleys' treatment of Harry is worse than in the books (you decide how much worse). Harry runs away and manages to survive on his own for a decent amount of time before running into Snape (e.g., he doesn't run off Privet Drive and end up banging into him). Snape finds out about the Dursleys' treatment, and his relationship with Harry changes in some way for the better. It must be set after first year.
Summary: What if Ron didn't come back when Harry was retrieving the sword in the water? Severus Snape is watching, making sure Harry gets the sword and helps him instead.
Summary: 5 times Snape saved Harry's life, and 1 time Harry saved Snape's.
Summary: The story goes that Albus Severus was merely named after two Headmasters of Hogwarts. No one ever knew that Harry's youngest boy was really the Slytherin Headmaster. What happens when Severus starts to remember and is determined to return to who he was?
Summary: Harry is failing his classes, and Snape is assigned to tutor him. Why? You get to choose. The remedial subjects must include more than one class. Bonus points if Harry dislikes this arrangement so much that he acts out.
Summary: Requirements:
  1. Harry is raised by death
  2. Harry must still be mortal
  3. Harry still has almost dying experiences like in canon
  4. It must be a long fanfic
  5. Death must treat Harry like how a good parent would treat their kids.

Option: Death using spanking on Harry.
Summary: One of the characters died. In fact, many are still mourning this person's loss. But what happens when the one who'd so recently been buried returns, not as a ghost, but flesh and blood? Had they really died, or was it some kind of mistake? Maybe it had been imagined, or a vision, perhaps? Maybe, only one person 'remembers' that this character should be dead.

Bonus if:
- The person who died is Harry or Snape
- You include the funeral at the beginning of the story
- The story is multiple chapters
Summary: Severus Snape becomes a child in his mind/is regressed to that of a small child mentally while his body is the same. Between the age of 4 and 7.

Must have in it:
  • Albus or Harry Potter finds him in that condition (remember Severus was an abused child)
  • Harry becomes involved because he is a compassionate soul despite his reservations about Snape.
  • Harry and Snape become like brothers/friends, like his mom was to Severus
  • Severus falls in love with a plushie Badger
  • Severus may act like he dislikes Albusís colorful robes but secretly he wants them like any small child.
  • Albus buys Severus a colorful wardrobe which Severus is secretly delighted with (colorful and printed robes which Severus becomes attached too and wears all the time to the point that stitching spells and the like no longer can fix them)
  • Please remember Severus loves potions so he might already know a thing or two about potions and he may also know a thing or two about magic because his mother did teach him a few things as a small child.
  • Must be 25 chapters long or longer.
  • Can take place during or after the war
  • No character deaths unless it is Voldemort and Peter Pettigrew.
  • The Whole Weasley Clan and Albus are very much alive.
Draco interaction optional. Lucious interaction optional.
Summary: Harry has to battle for the attention and love of his father with a real brother. The details are all up to you.

Some things you might want to consider:
Does Severus acknowledge Harry and his brother? Just one or just the other?
Are they half or whole brothers?
Do Harry and his brother get along?
Is Harry adopted and his brother is Snape's real son, or is it the other way around?
Is Snape all lovey dovey on them, or harsh and unkind?
Is Harry's brother someone we already know, or someone completely new?
Has Harry always known about Severus and his brother, or is this a new revelation?
Does Harry live with Snape? Does his brother?
How do Harry and his friends handle all of this?

Bonus: There is rivalry between Harry and his brother.

I do not want this story to be about Harry being adopted, and another adopted brother of Snape's. One or both of them must be Snape's real children. This can be at Hogwarts, or during the summer, both or neither. You decide.
Summary: Romilda Vane manages to slip Harry a love potion, and now he is under her spell. Does Snape help Harry? Or will he help Romilda? Would keeping Harry under Romilda's spell help keep Harry in line and out of trouble?
Summary: Harry advertises for a roommate / flatmate in a Muggle newspaper (either anonymously or under a fake name). Severus replies (either anonymously or under a fake name). Or vice-versa with Severus advertising and Harry replying.
  • What does the ad say?
  • If fake names are used, what are they and how were they chosen?
  • Why is Harry (or Severus) looking for a Muggle roommate?
  • What happens when they realize who each other is?
    (This can happen when they first meet, or later on if they are in disguise)
  • What happens next?
