We should ask ourselves:

Everybody knows that Harry Potter is the Boy-Who-Lived, but what if nobody knew just how exactly he lived?

Everybody knows of several ways to interpret the Prophesy, but what if the literal meaning is the most important one?

Everybody knows Harry to be a nice sweet boy, but what if it's not the case?

He won the war and was hoping to finally get some rest from the busy world, but suddenly some new unknown dark forces stepped onto the chessboard, challenging him to play a deadly 'hide-and-seek' game. So the most important question would be, does infamous happily-ever-after exist and would fighting for it even be worth it?

Harry met Holly when she was two - abandoned in the park by her mother. Unable to leave her alone, he stayed behind to keep her safe. Over the years, they became as inseparable as brother and sister.
When Harry found out he was a wizard, he was happy to find that Holly was a witch too, and one day, she would enter his new world with him.

Finding out he was a father to a nine-year-old girl, Severus Snape didn't hesitate to bring her home. His daughter belonged by his side, after all. Finding his daughter preferred Harry Potter over him was a travesty the Potions Master was not going to tolerate.

Somehow, Severus had to make his daughter see Harry Potter as he did - worthless, useless, hopeless.
