Summary: Takes place 5th year. During class there is an accident and several students are splashed with potion. Snape lines all the affected students up to assess damage and administer antidotes as needed. Harry has gotten slashed all over his arm and hand but attempts to hide his hand (possibly already bandaged) with Umbridge's scars on it. The damage from her quill could be worse than in canon or she could have used other forms of physical punishment on Harry as well. Snape eventually discovers the damaged hand. What will he do about it? Could be slow developing and Snape doesn't take an immediate liking to Harry, but stays in character.
Summary: Petunia and Vernon's marriage has fallen apart, and she's leaving him with Harry and Dudley. For a lack of anywhere else to go and/or to hide from Vernon, she goes to Snape. He is naturally shocked to have the three of them turn up on his doorstep. What happens next is up to the author.
Abuse could be involved but not required. Category and canon placement up to the author. No Dumbledore or Lily or James bashing. AU backstories welcome. No slash.
Summary: When Harry begins Hogwarts, his childhood imaginary friend is still hanging around.
Summary: Pre-hogwarts (but school age), Tobias is still alive and lives at Spinner's End. Social services determine living conditions to be unfit for Harry at Privet Drive after reports of neglect/abuse. He is promptly deposited at Spinner's End where records show his father lives and is forgotten about. (Severus or Tobias can be his father. If Tobias, I'd imagine through some not so nice actions to Harry's mom Lily). Tobias does not treat Harry well, is drunk and abusive/neglectful. Severus, who lives elsewhere, has some type of reason to (unwillingly) stop by his childhood home and discovers the boy lurking in the corner. Who is the kid? What, if anything, will Severus do? Not meant to be a nice story, nor immediate resolution.
Summary: Hermione and (a reluctant) Ron reach the conclusion that Harry is in need of a parent/guardian. After a through analysis by Hermione it is decided that Snape would best fit the job. They set out to create as many situations for the two to bond as possible and to present Harry in the best possible light. Snape and Harry are of course unaware of the plan. Will they succeed?
Summary: After at least one year of knowing and hating each other, some incident causes Harry and Severus to bond and become close enough for an adoption to be planned. But then tragedy strikes--all of Severus' recent memories are erased, leaving him with no recollection of the incident, and once again despising Harry. No Dumbledore bashing!
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: During his second year, something makes Harry and/or Ron and/or Hermione suspect that Snape might be the Heir of Slytherin. They decide to investigate him.
Summary: All muggle-borns and muggle-raised children must take a wizard family planning course unless their guardians sign a form to talk to them themselves. Of course, no one signs Harry's form and he is forced to endure "the talk" at Hogwarts. The teacher? Professor Snape. Harry may be alone in the class or there may be other students as well. Could be as humorous or angsty as you wish, but nothing too explicit.
Summary: Harry comes to Hogwarts with a problem that affects his learning. He could be colorblind, dyslectic, not have proper glasses (or none at all), not know how to read etc. Snape is the only one that notices. He may still not be nice to Harry, but does take some steps to fix the problem.
