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.
Summary: Severus Snape was a happy father of two, despite being in hiding from Lord Voldemort, when a tragic event destroys his happiness.
His son has been kidnapped and his daughter has been left injured on Halloween of 1981 and no amount of searching or spell casting can find him.(It's up to you as to why) He raises his daughter and when the time comes, she goes to Hogwarts but under a different name to avoid any kind of bullying she might get.
You can call her whatever, put her in any of the houses so as to fit your story. She can get along with Harry or not, it doesn't really matter. But they do have to get along in the end, it doesn't have to be that they're really close but they have to be civil, at least.
Would be interesting if you included things such as:
Summary: Snape forces Harry to take a drug test after he either catches Harry with drugs, or is suspicious that Harry is using. Whether Harry is positive or negative is up to you.
Summary: Can take place any time after 1st year, and must cover multiple years. Harry gets a beating from his uncle before leaving for school, and when he can do so, he retreats to an abandoned classroom to tend to his injuries. He is discovered by a Slytherin in his year (not Draco) hoping to do the same. They become friends. Snape finds out about the relationship, although it takes quite awhile for him to discover the reason for it, and is initially against his snake's friendship with Harry. He gets over it eventually, and takes them both in after discovering the abuse.
