Summary: When Harry goes to meet Voldemort he uses the resurrection stone to see his loved ones to help him meet his destiny. This time, instead of holding the stone he swallows the stone instead. That way no one can get the stone after he dies. He didn't expect to live, so when he returns to life he still has the stone in him until it passes out of him. Which also means that he sees the deceased until it passes out of him.

Summary: What if Voldemort won the first war?

Voldemort goes after the Potters but instead of Lily, he gives James the choice to join his Death Eaters and let him through, James refuses and this provides the necessary sacrifice needed for Harry's protection. Voldemort doesn't kill Lily, instead he just stuns or otherwise incapacitates her until he deals with her son. Voldemort doesn't vanish after firing the killing curse but is weakened and retreats thinking the threat is eliminated. As per promise, Lily is spared and Snape is summoned to collect his reward prior to the Dark Lord retreating. While Lily refuses to leave her baby behind and fights Snape tooth and nail, they suddenly notice that the Harry is still alive. The killing curse did not actually kill him, he was only temporarily dead or only appeared to be like In DH. Obviously the dark Lord can never know of his survival. Snape uses a potion to alter Harry's features permanently and forges a new identity for the kid, the child of a Prince relative who joined the Death Eaters but was killed by the aurors. Snape took him supposedly in as he felt responsible for the last Prince and to make sure the kid is raised into a proper Death Eater.

Voldemort takes over the Ministry after recovering and tries to defeat Dumbledore. Things do not look good for the light, Dumbledore vanishes with the help of Fawkes and stays hidden until he can mobilize more order members. Sirius is still arrested and taken to Azkaban for openly defying Voldemort, Remus is on the run.

The wizarding world is under the control of Voldemort but he's not as insane as canon. He only kills those who openly defy him, he is keeping the statute still in tact for now but issues a lot of laws regarding muggleborns.

They're not threatened but obviously treated as second class citizens with limited education and limited job opportunities. Wizards and Witches are no longer allowed to marry muggles or muggleborns or procreate with them. Muggleborns are removed from their family after their first performance of accidental magic, their parents obliviated and the children given to Death Eater and Pureblood families to raise. They are practically homeschooled, not allowed to attend Hogwarts and are taught basic magic or specialize in whatever will serve their pureblood families. Essentially, they're a little above house elves. Hermione ends up with Severus and Lily and they teach her everything they can.

During the early years, Snape is forced to imperio Lily when Voldemort or the Death Eaters are present because he doesn't trust her to control herself. They don't question it, after all Snape needs her body not her mind. Snape later on convinces his colleagues that the events of 1981 and being under prolonged influence of imperio have damaged Lily's mind, she's no threat and believes Snape's "nephew" to be her dead son Harry. Should Voldemort ever look into little Harry's mind, this will be the explanation of any loving memories with his mother and why he is called Harry. Lily, has meanwhile, perfected the art of occlumency and impeccably empties her mind whenever the Death Eaters are present.

Snape is still involved with Dumbledore and helps him gather the Order members. Sirius breaks out of Azkaban and looks for Remus, they try to rescue Lily from Snape but she explains to them what is going on and reveals the Order's secret Headquarters to them. There are multiple assassination attempts against Voldemort but all miraculously fail, Snape infers that Dark Magic must be involved and Lily starts her research until she comes across horcruxes.

Let the hunt begin.

During the early years, Snape and Lily are a total mess together, Lily can't forgive him and believes he's enjoying this situation. They're constantly fighting but she settles down a little after realizing that she has no other choice but to stay with him. She later comes to understand Snape's true loyalties and their relationship improves. They may just have a platonic relationship or it could develop into something of a romantic nature later on.

Summary: Draco's "My Father Will Hear Of It" (tm) has nothing - NOTHING on if Harry decides "my father will hear of it"... cause in that case there will be Hell To Pay

Summary: Dudley Dursley is changed to look exactly like Harry Potter.

Summary: Harry is forced to serve Umbridge's detentions, even though he didn't do anything to deserve them. He might as well do whatever he wants to deserve them. Maybe irritating other Professors will make them give him detention first. Time to take a page out of the Weasley playbook and cause mayhem.

Summary: Snape is chaperoning the Wizarding Duelling Tournament (think Spelling Bee field trip). Harry Potter is of course the Hogwarts participant/representative. There could be other students coming from Hogwarts too. They are forced to live in close quarters. Bonus if Harry also finds himself in some trouble or is experiencing anxiety/duress.

Summary: Basically, Lily and James Potter did not die that night in Godrics Hollow. Instead, they assumed their muggle aliases: Petunia and Vernon Dursley. --- It's up to you whether Dudley still exists. It's up to you whether Lily ever had a real sister named Petunia (maybe she did and Petunia died or maybe she never had a sister in the first place) It's up to you if Sirius and Remus and Dumbledore ever knew about Lily and James' escape plan or if they didn't trust anyone and kept it a secret. There should be no cupboard or starvation or abuse of course. But the caveat is, these "Dursleys" still want to be normal. They can't imagine letting the wizarding world (and Voldemort) find out they and Harry are Still alive. But they've gone a lot of years without using magic-- what can they do to stop whats coming? So what happens when Dumbledore sends snarky Professor Snape to give Harry his Hogwarts letter at 11 and make sure he knows he's meant to attend? ** could be a fun one shot or a full story if you like. Just an idea that flew into my head. Snape and Harry must be in the story obviously but I don't care what kind of relationship you give them

Summary: Snape overhears that Hagrid is going to deliver Harry’s letter next week. He decides to take matters into his own hands and pick up Harry and take him to Diagon Alley right away, before Hagrid gets to. In Diagon Alley they do completely different things, such as go to St Mungos for a mandatory check up before starting Hogwarts.

Summary: On the movie Jumanji, Martha gains the ability to dance fight. We learned canonically that Severus Snape is a good dueler. 1 + 1 = dance dueling! Make dancing a part of dueling and make Severus Snape excel at it! And of course the BWL needs to learn this art of defense. Maybe have snape teach it during the year he teaches DADA or maybe have Lockhart set it up 2nd year like he did the dueling club. However or whenever you like, I just want to see Snape dance-duel! bonus if he's a snob lol and imagines classical music while dueling whereas harry imagines rock music or something

Summary: Dudley ends up coming to Hogwarts. You choose why. Show how it affects Harry and his relationships.

Ideas for a few things that might have brought Dudley:

- Dudley's there to keep him safe from something or someone.
- Dudley is actually magic too. Did he start out going with Harry in year 1 or did he come in a later year?
- Dudley is allowed to visit Harry for some reason.
- Dudley and Harry are both in the custody of someone that lives at Hogwarts so Hogwarts is their full time home.

Potential questions to think about:

- If Dudley ends up going to school, which house does he really belong in?
- Is Dudley the canon Dudley or is he different somehow?
- If Dudley is Muggle but staying at Hogwarts for an extended period of time, what does that look like for him on a daily basis and who are his friends?

So many fun directions to take this in :)
