Summary: Harry and his friends end up on the Titanic through some sort of accident during 5th year. They are unable to do magic on the ship when it is sinking. Draco, Albus, McGonagall, and Severus end up there with them. A character almost dies. Draco must change for the better. No slash allowed.
Summary: I want to see an abused!Harry story where Harry is untrusting, a little shy, and has been placed by the hat into Slytherin as a first year. Snape doesn't like him but he isn't being exactly horrible to him either. Harry just starts to get comfortable in his first week there when suddenly he's removed from Slytherin and put into Gryffindor, the house he 'should be in' according to Minerva McGonagall, and a host of other worried people in the Ministry. The decision has been made, and Harry has no control over it. Now he feels like he's been singled out and made an example of and feels all the more alone. What's more, the Gryffindors don't want him there and Ron Weasley and the others make no effort to keep that quiet. Snape doesn't like that Potter has been snatched from Slytherin because his authority seems to count for nothing, but he's relieved to have the Potter 'brat' out of his house and out of his hair. Where does this leave poor half starved, injured Harry though? He wants to go back to Slytherin. How will he get there?

Bonus if Harry actually goes to Snape for help with his injuries after he's been taken from Slytherin.

Bonus if it's at least three chapters long.

Bonus if in the end, Ron at least comes to like Harry at least a little (but not too fast) and at least becomes an acquaintance rather than an enemy.

Note: Draco should be Harry's friend in this story. It's required.
Summary: Harry falls pregnant at Hogwarts. Harry is either with Charlie Weasley, Bill Weasley, or another older Wizard.
Summary:

As Harry goes up to Dumbledore's office after the Final Battle at Hogwarts, he is surrounded by bright, white light.

When he opens his eyes, he is on a bed at St. Mungo's. He is greeted by a Healer who tells him that his parents will arrive soon, now that he is finally awake.

Indeed, James and Lily Potter arrive, along with a 7-years-old boy, and a 4-years-old girl: Harry's little siblings.

The Potters are absolutely happy to have Harry back. After all, "he" had been in a comma for the last 10 years, after the family was attacked in Godric's Hollow, in Halloween, 1981. That's right, Harry is now 11 years old!

Harry decides not to tell his parents that he isn't really their Harry. For now.

More weirdness...

  • Peter is still friends with the Potters! Good Uncle Wormy!
  • Severus Snape has been in Azkaban for the last 10 years, for a crime he didn't commit. He claimed he's innocent, and didn't get a trial.
  • Dumbledore and Voldemort died in a fierce battle, 10 years ago.
  • Lily forces her family to spend several special days with the Dursleys, every year. Though the Dursleys are still uncomfortable with magic, they are way more tolerant than in Harry's world.
  • Neither Ron or Hermione know him, so Harry either has to befriend them all over again, or make new friends.
  • There is a sense of uneasiness in this world, and Harry doesn't quite understand why that is.

What will happen?

  • At some point, Harry will have to help Snape. Will he do it alone? Will Harry need someone's help?
  • Will Harry ever get used to his "new" family? Will he ever tell them he's not from around?
  • What is Snape accused of? Who framed him? Or did he really commit the crime?
  • Is Peter really a good guy in this world? Or is he plotting something?
  • Is Voldemort really dead? Or, for that matter, Dumbledore?
  • Was there a prophecy? Or not?

I have given you plenty to think about. And, I'm sure you'll come up with interesting, different things! I love AUs, as you've probably seen (if you follow my challenges, at all).

Summary: Write a story in which Lupin says to Snape, "Sevvy - let's go on a tea date!" It MUST be in character (really, it'd be too easy in a crack fic, don't you think?). You decide how Harry fits in.

(this challenge highly encouraged by my best friend. blame her.)
Summary: Harry discovers he has diabetes.

Summary: Write a story in which Harry AND Ron both somehow look up to Snape. There shall be NO SLASH in this story AT ALL. Bonus if you somehow work Draco in to this looking up to Snape as well, but not required. Ron and Harry should still be friends. Bonus if it's a full length story.
Summary: Snape eavesdrops on a conversation between Harry and someone else, only hearing part of it. He comes to a completely wrong conclusion. Harry eventually sets him straight.
Summary: Someone slips Harry a potion that has long-lasting or irreversible, life-changing effects.
Summary: Severus and Harry land in Middle Earth! :) They are too young to go on the quest, as they are young elves/elflings! :) Younger than Legolas - for they have not reached their majority, despite the fact they were adults prior to this. How they got to Middle Earth is up to you - perhaps they died in the Final Battle, or they decided to get away from the old world and wanted to start living in the new one. Regardless of which way you choose, they have family/kin in Rivendell! :) You can have either Erestor or Elrond become Severus' father (I would love Erestor for this, as I could see where the snarkiness comes from). Severus will be feeling lost and unsure of himself - without his potions he'll feel like he has no purpose. Bonus if you have him working and learning with Elrond making salves and whatnot for the healing wing, and maybe even learning the healing arts himself. Extra points if you have Harry joining the lessons as well. Severus will be his usual snarky self. Both he and Harry will have some previous memories intact, not all. Both will exhibit the abuses they suffered - Severus at Tobias' hands and Harry's at his relations' hands. At any rate, both he and Harry become family before their arrival in ME and during. How they are family I leave up to you. :D (Don't you just love freedom of choice?) They will also need to learn the history of the Eldar and other subjects that they need to know to live in their new world, so Erestor will be teaching them both at the same time. Anything else that is plausible I leave to you dear author! Hugs and Love, Vanime
Summary:
  1. Almost a 1000 years ago Salazar Slytherin, Godric Gryffindor, Rowena Ravenclaw, and Helga Hufflepuff, four brilliant, but foolish 15 year olds, drink unknowingly from a magic stream. Thus, never aging outwardly, any older then 15, nor ever able to be injured.
  2. Immediately after quenching their thirst the stream disappears.
  3. They very quickly learn to glamour their age 1 year older, every year.
  4. Slytherin and Ravenclaw marry at twenty.
  5. Gryffindor and Hufflepuff are good friends, but marry other spouses.
  6. The four founders have families, although thankfully the children are not immortal like both or one of their parents.
  7. At 125 years of age Slytherin wants to leave the school and get a quiet divorce from Ravenclaw. Why he wants to leave the school and Rowena is for you to decide. Although I would really prefer that he not divorce his wife for cheating or for doing the cheating.
  8. Throughout the decades and centuries the founders ‘die’ and take up new identities. Sometimes they de-age themselves to the age of 9, and get magically adopted into a wizard family. Where they look like the wizard family who willingly adopted them, assuming them to be a real kid.
  9. In the present day, Harry’s 5th, 6th, or 7th summer, Harry is out on a very hot day, and sees a new man-made stream (or fountain) running through the park. Upon drinking from it he soon feels strange and worries when it then disappears.
  10. Harry, back in his room, at the Dursley’s or living at 12 Grimmauld Place, unknowingly writes a help letter to Rowena Ravenclaw. Who comes to enlighten Harry that he now is immortal like she and some others.
  11. Ravenclaw’s current ‘new identity’, for many years now, is Professor McGonagall OR Hermione Granger. You decide which one.
  12. Now who are the other ‘disguised’ founders? Teachers OR students?
  13. Actually, to make this even more interesting have James Potter also be an immortal. Although whether he is one of the founders or just someone like Harry, who drank from the stream as a teen, is for you to decide.
  14. Was Kingsley Shacklebolt around during the 1st Voldemort war? If not maybe his image could be James glamour. Also, I will allow amnesia to explain why James didn’t raise Harry if need be.
  15. Voldemort, hears about the small group of immortals, and captures either Salazar Slytherin OR Godric Gryffindor. Whom he succeeds in possessing for a time.
  16. The three remaining founders, and the Order of the Phoenix go to rescue their possessed friend, unaware that on this day/night their 1000 anniversary of drinking from the stream all those years ago that they once again CAN be injured.
  17. The possessed founder is badly hurt, and Voldemort, while trying to escape in spirit form is finally destroyed.
  18. Lastly decide whether Harry now has to live a 1000 years before he CAN naturally get older again, OR was a second way found before they went off to kill Voldemort.
The point of this challenge is to keep mostly in character whomever you choose to be the founders of long ago. Thus, if you decide Hermione is Rowena Ravenclaw KEEP Hermione’s personality intact. Giving some of the main characters an OLD history was to give them added wisdom, experience, power, and a chance to be allowed to act a little differently. I wouldn’t mind seeing a less moody Ron Weasley as Gryffindor OR Slytherin. Or if Albus Dumbledore is a founder that would explain why he can move so fast when pressed to be somewhere in a hurry.

NOTE: Women can only be Ravenclaw or Hufflepuff. Men can only be Slytherin or Gryffindor.
Summary: Severus decides to de-age himself to give himself a second chance at life, and Dumbledore assigns Harry the job of taking care of the 7 year old Potions Master. One problem. Severus remembers everything, but keeps this fact hidden. Does Harry find out?
