Summary: James is dead, Sirius is a ruthless criminal (he was not put in Azkaban originally) , Lupin is poor and depressed, and Peter is hiding out as a rat. Lily survived, but blames Harry for her husband's death and does not treat him nicely (neglect, psychologically abusing, maybe physical etc). Severus on the other hand is living a successful life. He is smart, good looking, a strict but fair teacher, and the students respect him. What will he do when Harry enters Hogwarts at 11 and reminds him of his childhood bully? We he see past it and discover the boy's neglectful/abusive home life, or will he only see his perfect Lily manipulating him into thinking she's a perfect parent?
Summary: Severus and/or Harry is a centaur.
Details up to the author--could be transformation or always was one; could be known by everyone or kept secret. Any PaS category, AUs encouraged. No slash or manipulative!Dumbledore.
Summary: Lily Potter appears as a ghost to Voldemort (at some point while Harry is at Hogwarts). She tells him that if he saves her baby from the Dursleys, then Harry can be swayed away from the light. Voldemort decides to try and gives the task over to Severus. The rest is up to you.
Summary: Severus discovers that the famous Harry Potter cannot feel physical pain. Perhaps his hand was broken, or maybe a wound was open and bleeding. Either way, Harry, in his battered state, reports to detention, one Professor Snape made clear he could not afford to be late to. Severus is shocked at what he sees, but what truly makes him make a double take is that Harry acts as if he can't feel a thing. The catch is… he doesn't. A trip to the Infirmary confirms it. But there is a deeper reason. Young Harry Potter's accidental magic locked away his ability to feel physical pain in a futile attempt to block his emotional and mental pain caused by the Dursley's unjust hatred. How can Severus Snape, a man turned bitter by pain, explain to a little boy so afraid to feel anything, that sometimes… pain… is… needed?
Summary: What if, instead of Lockhart in Harry's second year, Umbridge had become the Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher? How would Harry not only have to deal with the cursed diary and the voices in the walls, but now has to deal with the Ministry and Umbridge's Blood Quills as well? How can a twelve year old take it? Dobby told Harry there would be great danger at Hogwarts. I don't think he had just the diary in mind.
Summary: Hogwarts professors take turns supervising the students during recess times. On several occasions Snape finds Harry severely underdressed for the weather. Will he keeps getting the boy in trouble or eventually look deeper into the issue?
Summary: Draco Malfoy overhears that Harry is hearing voices 2nd year. The ministry gets involved and seizes the opportunity to take custody of Harry in order to control and mold him to their liking. Harry is a pretty resilient kid so they end up subjecting him to some powerful (and harmful) mind magic possibly in an institution. Dumbledore and Snape are working around the clock to get Harry out/returned/back to normal after he is found to be non-responsive or withdrawn due to the ministry's treatment. Maybe throw a little Umbridge in there too to make it harder to get to Harry.
Summary: Severus is forced to cut his hair very short. The reason may be up to you, but magic can not grow his hair back for whatever reason. However, his shorn locks turn out to be a good thing because his hair does not look greasy with this new cut. This may give Severus a new outlook on life or perhaps people are looking at him differently. Of course, Harry should figure prominently in the story.
Summary: The wizarding equivalent of the muggle-American phrase, 'hold my beer!' Harry gets dared to do something stupid, and of course, he can't say no. When the aftermath lands him in the care of one Severus Snape, Harry may realize just how idiotic (or genius) it really was.
Summary: Dumbledore wanted Harry to find the Mirror of Erised, but he did not anticipate how much time Harry would spend in front of it. By the time Dumbledore decides to confront the boy about the mirror, the boy has been sucked into the clutches of grey magic, and lies unconscious on the stone floor of the unused classroom. Harry finds himself in paradise. At first he believes it's all to good to be true. His mum and dad are there. They love him. And Harry never, ever wants to leave. How can they save Harry from the mirror? Enter one, Severus Snape, Master Occlumens and Legilimens. It's up to the professor to pull Harry back to reality. But how can he if the boy does not want to return? Must include the line: "Aren't you too old to call me Mummy?" by one, Lily Potter.
