Summary: Harry uses a three times three spell and it backfires on him causing him to witness how other's actions (especially surrounding him. i.e.: being allowed to be on quidditch team first year, all the points at the end of first year) have affected the other houses. Emphasis for these affects must be felt by Slytherin house.
- Harry must realize that he has been treated special at the cost of others
- Severus either learns that Harry has had this experience or he is the one who causes Harry's spell to backfire
- Harry develops a better relationship with students from other houses, particularly Slytherin and with Severus.

We always read stories about Harry becoming a magical creature. But what if it was the sour Potions Master who is one?
Snape's Hogwarts years can be different from canon.
Snape and Remus can be friends or allies.
How does Snape's status as a "half-breed" affect the story? How does it affect him and Harry?
If this is Severitus/Sevitus, does Harry inherit Snape's creature-ness? (Yes, it can be a Father fic!)

There are several stories in which Harry or Snape get thrown into an alternative reality or dimension, and they have to adjust to an entirely different role, and relationship.
I have yet to read a story in which someone else is the one who gets thrown into canon. So, I've decided to write this challenge...
I lifted the "obligation" that the dimension traveler be Lily, but I strongly suggest it. You get to chose it, though. It could even be James Potter.
You can bring up the Dursleys.Restrictions

Summary: Creature!Harry has inherited Giant blood from somewhere in the family history. It manifests itself as he is growing up in the Dursley household and the muggles think he has Gigantism (think Robert Wadlow, who at age 10 was already 6'6" and grew to be over 8 ft).
Time frame: 1st year (or more, but I want to see Diagon Alley)
Things to consider:
*Where is he sorted? I sort of see Giant!Harry as a Hufflepuff, but you don't have to. Just give me some reasoning for whatever you choose.
*Do people on the Alley mistake him as Hagrid's son?
*Beds - both at the Dursleys and Hogwarts (Do they pull out Hagrid's old bed?)
*School supplies (Robes etc. Is there a shop that Hagrid shops at separate from everyone else on Diagon Alley?)
*Do brooms even come that large?
*Does Harry keep growing? How big does he get? Probably only from one side of the family, so he'd grow like a half-giant (still big!).
Re: Snape - I'd like to see him as an ally of some sort.

Summary: Harry realizes no ones lives are black and white. No one is wholely good or wholely bad. That it is about choices, actions, and reactions. That people are truly shades of grey.
- None of the characters are completely good or completely bad.

Summary: Harry steals stuff from Snape. Stuff can be defined anyway you like, as long as it's not potions ingredients.

Summary: My challenge is simple, or maybe not considering the lack of stories with these characteristics. My challenge is to write a Severitus, Sevitus or Snape mentor/guardian story WITHOUT disparaging James and Sirius to do so and without Draco being a poor misunderstood abused child who needs adoption too. (Sorry, I want Harry to be the center of the story). Where Harry isnít turned against James, who died trying to save him. Where James is a good father and husband. Where Severusí actions towards Harry and society (he becoming a Death Eater) are not excused by James and Sirius being horrible bullies (from canon we hear that Severus gave as good as he got and on DH we see that Severus was the first to insult not James and Sirius). Where Sirius isnít portrayed as a reckless idiot who doesnít give a damn for Harry (the man lived on rats for Harry!!! He told Harry to be careful on GoF. He obviously cares for him and can be responsible.) Harry isnít the one who has to apologize to Snape. Snape is the adult who bullied a child for being a Potter not the other way around. I want to see a story where Severus becomes a better man through his relationship with Harry by admitting his faults and responsibility for his actions and atoning for them and where after some growth (not right at the beginning because then heís be OOC), he can admit that James and Sirius actually grew up and were good people. I also donít want to see Draco having a worse life than Harry. There is nothing in canon to support that. Quite the opposite, Draco seemed to be a pampered little boy with very loving parents. If you want to have Draco becoming better and befriending Harry that is fine by me. But Harry is the one with a crappy life who gets a parent, not Draco. Iíve always wanted to read a story like that. There are so many Severitus, Sevitus and Snape mentor/guardian with good proposals, with the promise to be so interesting but 99.9 percent of them fall on the same clichť: making Severus look good by making James and Sirius look bad and making Harry look like a whiner for complaining about his life at the Dursleys and saying he is the one at fault with Snape not the other way around. Iíve braved through some of them, but I mostly lose interest because of this. I want a Severitus, Sevitus or Snape mentor/guardian that wonít make me want to skim over most of the story. The main plot, how they become a family, how Severus might have been Harryís biological father without them knowing. That is up to you, as long as you donít make it sound as if James forced Lily into marriage and is abusive. They may even not be really married, the marriage may be a cover up. But bottom line is James and Sirius have to be GOOD people. If you have Sirius alive and them having to work together for their relationship for Harry, thatís extra points. That gives so much room for the imagination. Sirius has to be good but he doesnít have to be perfect. He can be jealous. Imagine how much conflict and angst you can get out of the insecurities of both Severus and Sirius until they can finally work together for Harry (if you choose this that has to happen). Just remember not to make Sirius look childish. Itís easy to fall into that, from what Iíve seen. I hope someone can come up with a great story with those characteristics. Iím sure they can, Severus Snape is such a rich character and there are so many possibilities. Have fun playing with them people! PadyandMoony

This challenge only has a phrase that Harry has to say at some point in the story. It doesn't need to be word for word, you can twist it a little, but the gist must be the same.
The phrase is said by Harry, and to whoever you want: "After the divorce, my Mum dated three Muggles: the first one didn't like children; the second one didn't have a sense of humor; and the third one was a teacher. Then she married Snape."
The only restrictions are:
Anything else is up to you! I'd like to see what you can come up with. :)
