Summary: Severus gets sick of Harry sneaking around/eavesdropping, so he forces a bell around Harry's neck, or some magical equivalent--not important as long as it makes a noise when he moves. Perhaps also intermittently, randomly, or even constantly. Consider including a safety clause whereby he can stay silent if his life depends on it--but not necessary.
Snape and Harry encounter dementors and are both nearly Kissed. The procedure is interrupted at the last minute (by Snape or Harry or a third party) and somehow both souls end up in Snape's body. Harry, soulless, is comatose (or otherwise unresponsive) and mourned by all, while Severus increasingly finds himself with strange dreams, unexpected attitudes, and odd reactions to situations and people… How will he figure out what's going on? Can the two souls find a way to communicate, and return Harry's soul to his body?
Of course, this could work just as well with Snape's soul ending up in Harry's body. Feel free.
The Horcrux could come along too for the ride or have been eaten by the dementors, your choice. Could happen any time the dementors appear in canon, or any other time point you can make it fit.
Bonus if Harry and/or Snape find a way to destroy dementors permanently (because I never liked the idea that the incarnation of despair was eternal).
Summary: Severus tells a fib with good intentions. The consequences are catastrophic for Harry.
Summary: Lily is alive, and James is dead. She and Sirius have been growing close, and Harry is very keen to see his mum and godfather together. Severus, on the other hand, is not so keen to stand back and watch the woman he loves marry another man AGAIN.
No Sirius bashing or Albus bashing.
Summary: What if Snape had followed through with his threat to dose Harry with Veritaserum?
Summary: Snape, in a fit of rage does something to Harry that he deeply regrets later. No manipulative!Dumbledore, No Slash and no severe bashing.
Summary: What if Lily wasn't the only one with magic? What if Petunia was also a witch and went to Hogwarts with Lily and Snape? How would this have affected the way Harry grew up, with another magical person? What of Vernon and Dudley? Were they still around, since Petunia was tolerant of all things freaky? Or did she marry someone else, another wizard?
Summary: Harry and Severus unexpectedly come face to face in a support group for single fathers. No slash, everything else up to the author.
Summary: There's a new magical plague going around - one that eats at their magical core and leaves witches and wizards without their magic. When Harry and everyone around him lose their magic to the sickness and Voldemort continues to thrive, it is up to him and Snape to somehow save the day, Muggle style!
Summary: Write a story with the following line in it: "You know I never thought I'd say this, but pink looks good on Snape."
