Summary: The Dursleys never abused Harry. Instead, they treated him exactly like Dudley, and as a result, Harry is exactly what Snape always thought he was. Spoiled, a bully, and thinks himself high above others. When he comes to Hogwarts, acting exactly, if not more, like a James Potter reincarnated, how does Snape and everyone react?
Summary: Harry and Severus are stranded somewhere (doesn't have to be an island, as long as it's remote/isolated with little to no chance of escape) and have to co-operate to survive.
Summary: Sirius is killed after being kissed by the dementors third year. Harry has lost all hope of a caring adult in his life and his behavior spins out of control. Could be drugs, alcohol, shoplifting, disturbance of the peace etc.
Summary: Parent-Teacher conferences are held for all first years a couple months after school starts. Severus insists on being the one speaking to the Dursleys about the boy's disrespectful attitude and abysmal academic efforts in hopes of knocking him down a few pegs. What will the potions master do when he discovers that they care nothing of his attitude and troublemaking, and are only satisfied when explained that A, P and T are not good grades?
Summary: Harry looks like Lily instead of looking like James. I'd like to see Snape's reaction and subsequent treatment of Harry. Please, no girl!Harry
Summary: Severus Snape has been arrested and sentenced to the Dementor's Kiss or execution. Dumbledore and any other Order members who actually trust him are either dead or otherwise unavailable to help, so it's down to Harry, Ron and Hermione to find proof of his innocence. If they miss their very tight deadline (e.g. 24 hours), it will be too late.
Summary: An ambitious Petunia, still jealous and wishing to be part of the wizarding world of her dead sister, sees Harry as her chance to rise above the common folk and reach celebrity status. The Dursleys use every opportunity to promote the boy in public. The treat him well. However, when he fails to perform any accidental magic by the summer he is due to enter Hogwarts they cast him away believing he is a squib ( but really just a bit later than average in his development, perhaps from being traumatized as a kid). How will Harry manage essentially on his own with a family that does not want him anymore? What will come to pass over the summer, and in what condition will Harry arrive at Hogwarts?
Summary: It is Neville parents that are murdered by Voldemort while Harry's rot away at St. Mungo's. Neville is deemed to be the boy who lived and Harry is all but forgotten. Will anyone know the small,shy boy when he comes to Hogwarts? And why does he have a strange scar on his forehead? What really happened that October night, and did Voldemort know the prophesy and somehow try to alter the future? Which house will Harry end up in now that he is not famous? Will Snape loathe him the same when he's not the boy who lived?
Summary: Malfoy, Nott, and Zabini (Grabbe and Goyle could be part too) form a band of Slytherin Marauders when they enter Hogwarts . Their main purpose is to taunt Harry, which they do in a similar way to how the original marauders taunted Snape. Will the potions master intervene when he witnesses their cruel spells (perhaps Malfoy Sr has taught Draco some spells) and words, maybe even the upside down underpants incident? Will he realize that Harry has not had a great upbringing?
Summary: A pre-Hogwarts Harry Potter is unhappy at his relatives house and keeps running away. So far Dumbledore has sent Lupin or a nice witch from family services to retrieve him, but to no use. Stronger measures are needed for Harry to stay put and he decides to enlist Severus' services to scare the boy into staying put. Once Severus retrieves the boy they are forced to spend a certain amount of time together before it is possible to return him to Privet Drive. Will Severus notice that something is not right in the boy's home? What will Dumbledore do if his plan fails?
