One of the things I've noted concerning Sevitus and Severitus fanfiction is that Harry's original parents - Lily and James - are often marginalized, ignored, or even demonized in order to make Snape look better. In fact, the same applies to other living authority figures in Harry's life. Look at all of the stories where Dumbledore is made evil seemingly without any reasoning except to toss him in Severus's care.
My challenge is to write a fic where James (or James AND Lily) wanted Harry in Severus's care if he/they died. Somehow this information was lost, garbled, misunderstood... or suppressed.
The fact that Harry's parents wanted this might ease a lot of the Gryffindor's initial objections to being cared for by his hated Potions professor.
Additional parameters (optional):
1) The story should take place when Harry is school-age or older, not before he ever realizes he's even a wizard, or hears about his parents for the first time.
2) The Dursleys are really quite abusive enough in canon!
3) The reason the Potters wanted to give Harry to Severus should not involve his feelings for Lily... or at least that's not the primary reasoning. It might be one of the reasons the Potters would ever think he'd agree to it.
4) Please don't solely involve Lily in the decision. I think it reads as much more interesting if James suggests it or pushes for it. If this isn't possible with your version of James, then he should at least agree wholeheartedly that it's the right thing to do.
5) Lupin should be involved. Perhaps he's fighting Harry staying with Snape; perhaps he's the one who holds the key to the Potters' message.

Dumbledore has a secret, a secret that would change the prophecy and Harry on a fundamental basis.
During the incident in the Chamber of Secrets, Harry inadvertently and permanently lost all of his memories, but how to function on a basic needs level (he can speak, read... everything you average 12 year old can, but no personal memories). Taking advantage of Harry's weaknesses, Dumbledore, placed Harry with a small pure blood family family aligned with the Order of Phoenix and fabricated a happier life for him. He also put a glamour on Harry's appearance making him appear to be neither Harry Potter or his real identity, but Dumbledore did take off his talents suppression charm. He renames Harry.
On Harry's 15th birthday after much excelerated studying, Dumbledore arranges Harry to be apprenticed to Proffessor Snape. Snape is outright infuriated with Dumbledore, never wanting to do anything with children. He hates children, even if the child was his own son... or so he believes. After much coaxing Snape agrees.
After a while Snape learns to appreciate the fantastical talents and intelligence of Aubrey. Snape begins to yearn for his own child, his own son. But as fate would have it... Aubrey is Snape's son. When the all is revealed there is much chaos.
Please give Harry a different mother than Lily for originality's sake.
Please give Harry unusual and powerful abilities outside of the standard ones and be very creative please!
