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.
Summary: Potter had no idea just how many times Severus had saved his life.
Summary: Everyone knows that Dumbledore sent Harry to live with the Dursley's for his protection. What if the Dursley's desire to beat his magic out of him formed the parisite that creates an Obscurial? And what if no one knew until he reaches his breaking point and unleashes the very thing that all wizards fear? Include: Snape's view of Harry breaking due to seeing an Obscurial personally. Dumbledore talking about Newt's encounter with one in the 1920's. All four Heads of House working to save Harry. Dursley's in Azkaban. Voldemort's appearance early due to the Obscurial. Snape adopts Harry Note: Would love to see Newt appear in a story, no slash.
Summary: Voldemort is (somehow) defeated before the Ministry have acknowledged he is back, and once he is gone there is no proof he ever was back, so as far as most of the wizarding world is concerned, Harry is still an attention seeker (or delusional), Dumbledore is either senile or planning to take over the Ministry, and Snape is just a creepy mean Potions Master with a shady past. What now for all of them?
Horcruxes and Hallows optional
Summary: Harry occasionally sees through Voldemort's eyes in dreams. What if he were to see through Snape's, or vice versa, or both? How, why and when/how often it occurs up to the author.
Bonus if what he/they see(s) is originally written off as strange dreams or nightmares. Double bonus points if Voldemort somehow forged the connection, for any reason you like or by accident.
Summary: I want to see a Percy Jackson and the Olympians crossover with Harry, Severus and Percy (Jackson, not Weasley, though feel free to throw him in too) as main characters. I can imagine any number of interesting scenes involving the three of them.
Think through how you handle the two book series existing side by side carefully, e.g. getting around the differences in how magic works. (I've seen some well-thought out examples on FFnet.) Dates can be juggled with to make them fit. Be creative! That's a general rule for the whole story not just the technical points.
- Percy is for some reason trying to pass as a Hogwarts student, becomes friends with Harry and gets him into trouble with Snape
- Snape can't believe that there's someone who is even more of a trouble magnet than Harry
- Harry meets Percy through Snape, who has some connection with either the Jackson family or Camp Half-Blood
- the mythological and wizarding worlds are not meant to mix
- and trouble happens when they do!
- Bonus points for Snape eventually becoming a father figure to both of them
Summary: Lily appears to Severus in a dream right before Christmas (any year) and asks him "Tell me dear friend, why are you so blind?".....in regards to Harry of course.
