Summary: Snape finds out Harry is abused by the Dursleys and takes him in. While living with Harry at Hogwarts, he finds out that Lily's parents are still alive. Harry is 3-6 years in this story.
Summary: Someone at the school (preferably someone close to Harry, but not necessary) has been put under the imperius curse. The caster's goal is to hurt Harry physically or mentally. Harry is oblivious, but perhaps Snape will notice?
Summary: During the first potion class as first years that they brew Snape is particularly nasty towards Harry and makes him cry. A tear falls into his cauldron and causes some type of reaction (could explode or do something entirely different). Harry could look more like his mother or maybe not wear glasses for a little extra distress on Snape's part.
Summary: Harry watches helplessly as something or someone evil takes over his body.
Summary: Someone (preferably Harry or Severus) is given a poison designed to kill its victim in ten ways at once. Be creative.
Summary: To promote unity Dumbledore puts out a mandatory challenge. All student and staff will be paired up with another student or staff and have to do a presentation on 5 things they like about the other person. Spending a certain number of hours together is mandatory. Harry and Snape are of course paired.
Summary: Option 1: All students are sent home for 1st year christmas holidays. The Dursleys, of course, have plans excluding Harry. He is sent over to Mrs. Figg's to spend the holidays there. What they don't know is that she has planned to be gone as well, and none other than the potions master has been given the task to be a live in babysitter to the boy who lived. Will Harry be able to stay out of Severus' way and trouble? At this point he believes that Snape is out to get him too. Option 2: Pretty much the same thing just Pre-Hogwarts. The Dursleys go on holiday and so does Mrs. Figg. Harry is sent over and is greeted by the sour potions master. Will he know anything about taking care of a child younger than Hogwarts age?
Summary: The Dursleys actually manage to convince Harry that magic is truly evil. When he receives his letter the summer before Hogwarts he is frightened out of his mind and runs away (the Durlseys don't care) and the letters keep following him. Eventually Hogwarts staff is able to track him down and Severus is charged with the task of taking care of him until term starts.
Summary: Only Lily died on Halloween; James somehow survived, perhaps he wasn't home at the time. He and Severus are both mourning her loss; eventually (not too quickly) they put aside their animosity and grow close like family.
Summary: Severus has a girlfriend. 12 year old Harry Potter has been put into the muggle social services system after proven neglected and abused by the Dursleys. She finds the timid and polite boy in a group home and offers him a home for the holidays. Severus is also staying over. How will he act when he realizes he has to share his girlfriend with the brat who lived? How will Harry react to having Snape in charge of telling him when to go to bed and to eat his vegetables in addition to never having lived in a "normal" family setting thanks to the Durlseys? Lots of angst and not a nice overnight Snape welcome.
