The challenge is to take place after HP and the Deathly Hallows. Finish where JKR left off before the epilogue 19 years later. It has to be from Harry's point of view. What happened after the Battle of Hogwarts? Things that need to be included: Snape still lives, Tonks and Lupin still live.
Summary: For some reason, Snape is taking care of a three year old Harry Potter. They go somewhere and Harry gets hurt. How does Snape make him feel better, and if necessary, heal his wound(s)?

Options: Can be one-shot or multi chaptered.


After the end of Deathly Hallows, Harry spends more time in Snape's memories and discovers that Snape is Harry's father. Reckless and determined to recreate the family he never had, Harry uses Snape's horcrux (the potions book of the "Half-Blood Prince") to bring Snape back. Snape is less than pleased at the Dark magic used to bring him back from behind the Veil, but he soon realizes that Harry needs his guidance in the new challenges of a world without Voldemort.
Summary: Harry is left on Snape's doorstep.
Summary: Snape teaches Harry a lesson, using any of Aesop's Fables as the moral. The fable from which the moral comes must be sighted in the author's notes. It must involve Snape telling Harry the fable and what he expects Harry to learn from it. Can be a oneshort of a part of a larger story. Any other characters may be used in the story as well as long as Snape is the one telling the story and Harry learns something from it.
Summary: Snape comes across Harry in the Hogwart's kitchens. Harry is making something. There must be House Elves involved in this story (either a big or small involvement). The story can be set either during Harry's Hogwarts years or before that. If you put the story in pre-Hogwarts time do explain why Harry ended up cooking something in the kitchens. And what will happen between the two of them during and after this exchange?
Summary: Snape is a Mad Scientist. What does this mean, and what does he do to Harry Potter?
Summary: An answer to this challenge must include the conversation below or some varation to it (tweek it and twist it to your own needs), but other than that, you're free to do as you please.

"He was socially deprived for ten years of his life, a time when it is necessary to have contact with people in order to correctly develop, mentally and emotionally. He doesn't understand the concept of trusting adults or the need to be respectful if there are no negative consequences, so he won't simply take the word of someone. During his entire life before Hogwarts, he was lied to about everything by those who he should have trusted; he won't follow orders of someone he think dislikes him simply because he has every reason to believe they are lying," she said, continuing to take notes.

"And then," Snape said, annoyed, "how am I to get him to listen, if you refuse to let me punish him?"

"Talk with him. Sit him down and explain social rules to him, if you must: table manners, how to speak to elders, what they are, and why they are. Most likely, he won't see them as necessary and he might even claim them to be superficial. His aunt and uncle were polite to everyone outside the house, but once away from the public view, they were nasty, heartless people."

"Right," snapped Severus, even more mortified than he was moments before.

"Perhaps even explain normal wizarding customs. Things that you've taken no notice of because your mother was a witch, but things he never would have thought to ask: Marriage customs, the lives of typical wizarding children, whatever."

Severus didn't answer or look up. After moments of silence, he stood up and left, leaving her alone.
Summary: A biological father or adoption fic that includes this (almost) quote from the tv show 'Shark'.

"Everytime I try to get involved in your life, you push me away. When you have problems, you go to ______. When you get in trouble, you call ______. You only want a father when it's convenient for you. Well, I got new for you. It doesn't work that way. So when you want a father for real... you let me know."
Summary: Harry find out Snape and Lily are cousins. Snape made an unbreakable vow of protecting Harry as Lily's requirement.
