HP story. (yes, spoilers for DH mentioned
I'll be so glad when everyone's read the damn book. But cut for those who haven't yet.
I daresay a lot of people have had this idea. I'm not a huge fan of HP. I've read the books and found them enjoyable for what they are, but, I like Snape's character, but more to the point, more than liking Snape, I dislike James Potter (I know, I'm weird, but I just didn't like his character).
So, I had an idea for an AU in which the characters are basically unchanged, except Snape didn't call Lily a mudblood and him and Lily didn't fall out on account of their initial friendship, and James' treatment of Snape giving them both that extra push.
Lily and Snape have a relationship, but Harry is still James' son because of a brief fling Lily had in anger over some kind of temporary split with Snape. Lily and James never get married and Lily intends to bring up little Harry with Snape instead.
From the point of Voldemort killing both Lily and James, this doesn't change. Lily visits James or somesuch when they are both killed and Harry survives, as original canon.
The story could be just the initial up to Voldemort's initial defeat, or snippits throughout from Snape and Lily through Harry's school years and to the end and the effect these differences would have had, if any, or a complete epic of the whole lot.
Whatever floats your boat really.
I'm flinging it out there because even if it just encourages anyone to write Snape/Lily, then my work here is done. It's not the greatest story premise, so do what you like with it and feel free to improve upon it (a lot!).
I'd try to write a decent Snape/Lily myself, but I can't do the characters any kind of justice.
