When Pigs Fly by BooksR4ever reviews
(James x Severus) Severus had always believed that romance wasn't for him. Everyone else believed him to be filthy death eater scum, and he agreed, never fathoming the concept of someone liking him enough to actually pursue a relationship with him. Until one fine day in sixth year, when he finds himself with a small, three year old child clinging to his right leg, calling him Papa.

Cripple Me by BlueRowley reviews
Severus Snape hates Harry Potter. Nothing will ever change that. Not even that trusting smile. Or that all too sweet and innocent look. Or the sudden shift in his relationship with the Potter whelp. Not even those bright, green eyes. No, nothing will ever change Severus's hatred for Harry Potter – no matter how fond of him he was becoming. An eventual Snape adopts Harry story.

A Different Messenger by SophrionaSphinx reviews
I love "Harry is rescued from the Dursleys" stories but never found one that was quite right. So I had to write one myself.

Sileo by SerenSly reviews
Severus Snape knew many things. He knew how each and every potion ingredient would react to another. He knew that he should never have agreed to become a teacher and, above all else, he knew that Petunia Dursley nee Evans should never be allowed within a hundred feet of a magical child. (A Severus raises Harry fic because I love them. Simple as that.)

The Article by LeeASherlook reviews
One newspaper article upends Harry's Wednesday morning, as he must deal with the consequences of having the reality of his home life splashed across the front page of The Daily Prophet. It might have been bearable if the information was anything less than the absolute truth.

Forgiveness by mandancie reviews
I saw this picture on Tumblr and I began to think what if right before Voldemort showed up that night on Halloween, Lily wrote a letter to Severus that she was going to send the next day. What if when Severus showed up after Lily was killed, he read the letter. What would happen?

I Will Always Be With You by gaytheorist reviews
