Summary: Harry Potter has a random request. Something *nobody* would have ever expected him to ask for.....
Rules : Snape must hear about the request whether that's at the time or after is up up you. Whether it affects snape or not is also up to you. He must be canonical though-- so he can't be supportive of the request, at least not at first
An example: "the entire hallway was silent, you could hear a pin drop. All eyes were on the unlikely duo standing in the middle, one dark-haired and green-eyed hero looking sheepish and hopeful at the boy in front of him as he awaited an answer to his question. 'Will you be my date for the Yule Ball?''(obviously this is an example set during the tournament)
A 2nd example just to show how much freedom you have with this challenge: "The bushy haired teenager had never in a million years thought she'd hear these words from her friends mouth. They were downright cruel in fact! And he didn't even look sorry! How dare Harry James Potter ask her if she could have her parents fix her teeth because they were getting even bigger and it was hard for him to not laugh?! I mean, how rude of that boy!" 🙃😃
A 3rd possible example: "When Severus Snape woke up that morning, he had no idea he'd end his day staring open mouthed at the audacity of the dunderheaded brat in front of him. The little idiot had just barged into Snapes office and requested, nigh demanded, Severus Snape be nice to him! What in the blazes is going on?!"
This challenge is so wide open I think we can get some serious laughs out of it or if you go serious that's awesome too.
Summary: Harry keeps the Resurrection Stone. Snape is at his beck and call.
Summary: Severus has to use his real accent. Harry starts to pick it up.
Summary: When Sirius falls into the veil, he falls out the other side--alive, and not alone. Lily is returned from the dead.
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: 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: 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?
Summary: After death Harry is reunited with his parents, but since all three had the mutual dying wish of Harry growing up with them he ends up small again to fulfill the wish. Harry isn't the only one deaged though, Snape is too, and Harry's parents are given the additional task to look after a deaged Snape as well.
Summary: *OC required* Snape somehow acquires guardianship of Harry at the beginning of first year. He is quite unwilling to take on the responsibility and tries to distance himself from his ward as much as possible. Reluctantly he meets with Harry once a month (outside of classes) in his office to access his needs and discipline. These meeting are meant to be tense. Snape is forced to take Harry with him home over one of the holidays (could be as soon as christmas, but also easter or the summer to give them a little more time). This is where the OC comes into play..Snape has a wife and is not happy to share her and his house with Harry.
I picture quite a tense story with slow progress towards a good relationship. How Snape gets guardianship in the first place is up to you. Snape's wife can be nice or she can be a bit mean but hopefully grows fond of Harry. I also picture a Harry that is a bit more affected from life with his relatives and is unfamiliar with normal family dynamics. And it can be boy or girl who lived.
Summary: A teacher (or other member of staff) at Hogwarts is hiding a Dark side. He or she has ambitions to take Voldemort's place as Dark Lord/Lady.
Has to be a canon teacher, but NOT Dumbledore, Snape, McGonagall, or an already evil character like Quirrell.
Harry is involved in their plan somehow (whether or not he knows it). Snape is either involved too, or discovers the plan.
- a really unlikely candidate
- Harry and Snape being the only ones who can stop him/her
- it bringing them together
- them having to prioritise between stopping Voldemort and stopping the rival by deciding who is the greater threat
- they make the wrong decision
- another prophecy (or more) confusing the issue.
