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.
Summary: When Harry Potter first arrives at Hogwarts, Severus Snape falls victim of buying the lie Harry has sold to every other adult and student: the lie that young Harry found the one place he could belong and be himself. However, after a particularly disastrous potions class, Severus is forced to change perspective. How could Harry be himself…if he believes that no one thinks anything good of him? No thanks to the Dursley's, Harry's life has lead him to one conclusion: he will never, ever measure up. With a little boy wired to believe all think the worst of himself and all else refusing to see the truth of the Golden Boy, Severus certainly has his work cut out for him.
Summary: Write a story that explores what happens to people once they've undergone the Dementor's Kiss.
Summary: Challenge inspired by Ella Enchanted. Somehow or other, Harry is cursed to obey every single order he's given, no matter what it is or who gives it to him, or even what trouble obeying it gets him into.
Summary: Harry comes to Hogwarts and is as unruly and full of attitude as Snape expected. The boy gets into fights and causes trouble at every turn. Why? a result of Dursley neglect/abuse, never being loved, not growing up in a normal family. Can anyone get past his tough exterior to see the vulnerable boy underneath?
Summary: Severus has a girlfriend. 12 year old Harry Potter has been put into the muggle social services system after proven neglected and abused by the Dursleys. She finds the timid and polite boy in a group home and offers him a home for the holidays. Severus is also staying over. How will he act when he realizes he has to share his girlfriend with the brat who lived? How will Harry react to having Snape in charge of telling him when to go to bed and to eat his vegetables in addition to never having lived in a "normal" family setting thanks to the Durlseys? Lots of angst and not a nice overnight Snape welcome.
Summary: After Deathly Hallows, Harry is alive and somehow gets deaged. Snape is alive, finds Harry and adopts him. Your choice if Harry still has his memories or not, if he hides that fact or not. Your choice if Harry and Snape still have their magic or not.
Summary: The Muggle Studies classes are studying muggle popular music. Pick a song for any teacher or character.
Summary: Instead of a magical influence, make it a developed AU where Harry is a preschool/elementary teacher and somehow a new child (Severus) transfers to his school and is allocated into Harry's class. (in light of the spring fest, school term can prolly start in spring?)
cue plot, h/c and shenanigans! how/why Severus was transferred to Harry's school is up to the author's discretion.
bonus:
- multi chapter!
- includes most of canon characters; could even bring in lily and the maruders as classmates of severus for example
- severus being in-character even as a kid; he could be surly and everything initially but he gotta warm up to harry in a logical sense (think of his family background and general distrust with male adult/authorative figures)
- harry being harry; similar family background as severus hence prolly would be more understanding and knows what to do to make severus feel safe with him
Summary: One day, Harry wakes up to discover no-one can remember him. No-one has the faintest clue who he is. Can be set at any point in canon, AUs welcome.
