Severus Snape introduces Mark to the Wizarding world, takes him to buy his supplies, etc., and Mark is sorted into Slytherin.

Summary: Snape makes a wager with Harry that he can't go three weeks without ANY magic. Harry has to go around wearing some sort of jewelry that completely binds up his magic. As a result, Harry becomes pale, exhausted, and random bruises start showing up from where the Dursleys hit him, which previously had been hidden by magic. Potions can't help because the magic binder won't let them work... the only one who can take the binder off is Snape.
Summary: Snape is the innocent 11 year old stumbling into the Wizarding world and Harry Potter is the jaded, angry teacher. The "Snape" can be either Severus Snape, or his son.
Summary: Dumbledore received a prophecy when Severus was 3 years old and in fulfilling it, Fate forced the Headmaster into creating the terrible life Snape suffered through. Albus vowed to put this right; After his internment, Albus' magic left to fulfill a last spell; Severus was returned to the 3 year old that Albus destroyed first time round. There are no magically stored memories, no magical return to adulthood, just growing up again one day at a time. When he comes to Hogwarts where Harry Potter is a teacher, all young Severus knows is that he was found, abandoned, as a 3 year old and has grown up in care ever since.
Options: Who wants to foster or adopt the lost, confused (and possibly wealthy) orphan, Severus Snape? Who cares if he is being set up to be abused or exploited?
