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: After the events of second year, with the Chamber of Secrets, the Board of Governors decides that the students need counseling, and install a school counselor. Your choice where you go with this, but if Harry's abuse is discovered or Severus' prejudices are overcome, that would be wonderful.
Summary: Harry has to go back to stay with the Dursleys to strengthen the blood wards, that much is certain. But what if the Dursleys are comatose, kissed or cursed so that their bodies are there, but their minds aren't? Dumbledore has a clever plan to have Professor Snape take their place at 4 Privet Drive. To ensure that Harry's summer is just like any other, Snape is charmed to be forced to act just like the Dursleys would if they were there.
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: Other things about Harry, besides his eyes, remind Severus of Lily, and this causes him to treat Harry differently. These things can be physical characteristics, personality traits, or both.
Summary: So many of our stories include Snape being Harry's biological father, adopting Harry, or otherwise somehow becoming Harry's guardian.Frequently it is because Harry is being abused, or it is discovered in the process that Harry is being abused. I want to see a story where Snape's opinion of Harry changes some other way, and they gain a mentor/mentee relationship (or just a friendlier relationship) without first being forced to co-habitate or something. Also, it is preferred (but not completely necessary) that Harry's treatment at the Dursleys is no worse than it is in the books, and there is no shocking revelation about this. I love those stories, but I want to see something different.
Summary: Harry is knocked down the stairs by Dudley and is badly injured was it an accident or not? Will Dumbledore finally see what Harry goes through with the Dursleys? and why would he place him with Snape?
Summary: When Snape finds Harry in his pensieve he is so furious he issues a punishment immediately (preferably corporal punishment:show the different emotions). Then Harry blurts something out that makes Snape stop. This leads to a small talk. It continues with Harry asking Snape to continue the lessons. Snape's response should be your decision.
Summary: Snape has learned that Harry is a horcrux. He refuses to do things the Headmaster's way and allow Voldemort to kill Harry in order to destroy the Horcrux - Snape will destroy the horcrux himself first.
Summary: Draco dies under mysterious circumstances. Since Harry is his enemy/main rival, he is the main suspect. Harry is innocent, but few people believe it. Neville, Hermione, and Professor McGonagall believe him (a few others are the writer's choice), and although Snape doesn't initially, his opinion changes and he eventually begins to support Harry.
Summary: Harry really is a dunderhead when it comes to potions and has royally messed one up.
Summary: After the war Harry's life is out of control, whether he wants to admit it or not. Snape is sent or brought from the dead to get Harry's life back in control. It's your choice who summons Snape or decides to bring Snape back.
