What If He Apologised & She Accepted? by etherian reviews
What would have happened if Snape had apologised to Lily after his "most embarassing moment" and she accepted? Warning: this is AU, bittersweet, and you will need a hanky.

Unsaid by DianaArtemis16 reviews
"Perhaps a man who wants to redeem himself in the memory of the mother would, in turn, give comfort to a child." Dumbledore grinned at the other man's unbidden expression of shock. "But when said like that, it hardly encompasses the depth of emotion when I see you have cradled Harry Potter to sleep after a nightmare." Severus scowled. "I was not cradling him."

Bright Green Eyes and Little White Lines by MellarkandArt reviews
Harry Potter is sorted into Slytherin, which automatically makes his problems Severus' problems. Like, more so than usual. Severus, being the ridiculously responsible professor that he is, has an important discussion with the boy. TW: talks of self-harm, c*tting, non graphic.

A Peace of Mind by Cataldo Knows It All reviews
AU where Snape basically left the death eaters (for himself, not for Lily) sooner than he actually did in the books and was working undercover for Dumbledore the entire time. Harry Potter is never known as the boy who lived, his parents don't die, and Voldemort is defeated by Dumbledore when he's like three. Basically, a story where Snape has emotionally grown.

A Curious Dream by Cataldo Knows It All reviews
Harry wakes up from a curious dream. Wrote most of this two years ago. I don't really ship severus and lily anymore (the original purpose of this fic was heavily severus/lily related and it still kinda is), but still thought this was a cool idea, so I finally got around to finishing it. Hope you like it. Haven't edited it in a while, so prepare for some mistakes.

Mors Certa, Hora Incerta by mlocatis reviews
Alternate end to DH: Snape survives and continues to play his double role until the very end. When all is said and done, where will the spy stand? And will reconciliation with Harry be possible? AU but mostly canon-compliant. Direct quotes are bolded.

Not His Father by mlocatis reviews
Just another Harry and Snape fic, set during OOTP Occlumency lessons. Animosity between the two is already at a record high, and one night Harry just lets loose-with both his magic and his words. He reveals a little more about himself than he intended, leaving Snape reeling and severely disoriented. Headed in a Mentor direction, NOT S/H Slash, canon-compliant through DH

One-shot: The war is finished, and the returning 7th-years are permitted to dress up for Halloween. Harry decides to push boundaries, and goes all out with his costume. Partial response to greencat's Harry's Hogwarts Halloween challenge on Potions and Snitches. A little early, but Happy Halloween 2017!

Harry Snape (Remake) by Chucky Ray reviews
The night that Harry James Potter became the boy who lived it changed Severus Snape's life forever. For he was about to do something that he thought he would never do,.. help raise the son of his worst enemy. (A reboot of an old fanfic of mine due to the fact that there are some changes to it and it's now roleplay based.)

Because I Worry by Flumet reviews
Harry has lived with Severus for a few months since leaving the Dursleys 'care'. Most of it has gone smoother than Severus ever expected. Though one day, Harry's not acting like he usually does. Severus tries to figure out what might be wrong with Harry while also keeping up with classes and work. In the end, it's nothing Severus thought that's making Harry act the way he's doing.

Family Portrait by Flumet reviews
Harry had now lived with Severus for almost three months since Dumbledore hadn't found a permanent home for him yet. Severus assumed he'd just have to look after the boy until they found a fitting family. Though he had to be extra nasty to the students to level out the domestic sight of him carrying a tired boy through the castle or accepting child drawings during class.

The Beginning of Something (called family) by Flumet reviews
It's Snape's first evening with four year old Harry Potter. Hopefully, the boy will get a new home soon, but until then, Snape will have to be... civil. Maybe even something close to kind. First part of oneshot series called 'The adventures of Snape slowly adopting Harry Potter'. Can be read as a stand alone.

Little Potion Maker by Flumet reviews
Severus just wanted a calm, slow Saturday. Harry wanted to make potions like Severus always does. The fact that he's four makes it slightly more complicated. Though Severus isn't too happy about the mess Harry made, it's hard to stay mad at such a happy, proud little boy showing off his first potion ever made. At least they can clean up together.

When Severus' Grandmother sets him up on a date with her best friends' granddaughter, Anne Blythe, a Muggle social worker, he has no idea how far reaching the concequences will be. T for paranoia
