Summary: There's a new magical plague going around - one that eats at their magical core and leaves witches and wizards without their magic. When Harry and everyone around him lose their magic to the sickness and Voldemort continues to thrive, it is up to him and Snape to somehow save the day, Muggle style!
Summary: Write a story with the following line in it: "You know I never thought I'd say this, but pink looks good on Snape."
Summary: Sometime during his Hogwarts career, Harry is surprised by a time traveler bearing the Potter name.
Summary: After first year, Harry is told he has to return to the Dursleys for the summer. But Harry has other ideas... who cares what the adults want! It's not like they've proven they know better than Harry. He'd rough it on his own, maybe live in a Wizarding hotel, the country side, another country, even on the street if he had to! No way would he ever go back to Privet Drive.
Summary: Snape and Harry are werewolves. However you want to make this happen. Maybe they were both bitten by Remus in Harry's third year or maybe Snape was bitten in his fifth year and Harry another time, or maybe Harry was born like that in a sort of Darkest Powers AU (which I'd be thrilled if you decided to do).
Summary: In the years before he goes to Hogwarts, Harry is talent spotted and made an offer that will turn his life upside-down.
What is his talent? Do the Dursleys let him accept? Are they worried he'll expose himself as a freak or are they more concerned with the money and fame? What happens when he gets his Hogwarts letter? And most crucially ... where does our favourite Potions Master fit in?
Summary: During the school year there's a ripple in the air, and out pop Severus and Harry. But there's a problem. There's already a Severus and Harry! They warn of dangers that may come, and that they left from their Universe to this one to help. What will the original Severus and Harry do, and how does everyone react to an extra Potter and Snape?
Summary: What if Hermione was poor and Ron was well off? What if Harry had a good family but Ron was homeless? What if Dumbledore was strict (and still nice) but Snape sometimes bent the rules for Harry or other students? Your goal is to write a story where one or more facts of the Harry Potter universe are flip-flopped and it impacts the story in a big way.
Other ideas (but feel free to ignore and come up with your own):
I wouldn't really like to see a story in which Harry somehow ends up flung into an alternate reality. I'd like to see a story where this has just always been the way of things.
Summary: Snape requires all his students to get a parent's signature on their potions report cards over the summers, and bring it back the first day of class in the fall as a way of making the parents aware of their children's abysmal results. Harry does not get his signed. What will the potion master do? Detention? Try to talk to the Durlseys?
Summary: James is dead, Sirius is a ruthless criminal (he was not put in Azkaban originally) , Lupin is poor and depressed, and Peter is hiding out as a rat. Lily survived, but blames Harry for her husband's death and does not treat him nicely (neglect, psychologically abusing, maybe physical etc). Severus on the other hand is living a successful life. He is smart, good looking, a strict but fair teacher, and the students respect him. What will he do when Harry enters Hogwarts at 11 and reminds him of his childhood bully? We he see past it and discover the boy's neglectful/abusive home life, or will he only see his perfect Lily manipulating him into thinking she's a perfect parent?
