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."
Summary: Sometime during his Hogwarts career, Harry is surprised by a time traveler bearing the Potter name.
Summary: After first year, Harry is told he has to return to the Dursleys for the summer. But Harry has other ideas... who cares what the adults want! It's not like they've proven they know better than Harry. He'd rough it on his own, maybe live in a Wizarding hotel, the country side, another country, even on the street if he had to! No way would he ever go back to Privet Drive.
Summary: Snape and Harry are werewolves. However you want to make this happen. Maybe they were both bitten by Remus in Harry's third year or maybe Snape was bitten in his fifth year and Harry another time, or maybe Harry was born like that in a sort of Darkest Powers AU (which I'd be thrilled if you decided to do).
Summary: In the years before he goes to Hogwarts, Harry is talent spotted and made an offer that will turn his life upside-down.
What is his talent? Do the Dursleys let him accept? Are they worried he'll expose himself as a freak or are they more concerned with the money and fame? What happens when he gets his Hogwarts letter? And most crucially ... where does our favourite Potions Master fit in?
Summary: During the school year there's a ripple in the air, and out pop Severus and Harry. But there's a problem. There's already a Severus and Harry! They warn of dangers that may come, and that they left from their Universe to this one to help. What will the original Severus and Harry do, and how does everyone react to an extra Potter and Snape?
Summary: What if Hermione was poor and Ron was well off? What if Harry had a good family but Ron was homeless? What if Dumbledore was strict (and still nice) but Snape sometimes bent the rules for Harry or other students? Your goal is to write a story where one or more facts of the Harry Potter universe are flip-flopped and it impacts the story in a big way.
Other ideas (but feel free to ignore and come up with your own):
I wouldn't really like to see a story in which Harry somehow ends up flung into an alternate reality. I'd like to see a story where this has just always been the way of things.
