In Loco Parentis by dolores_crane (NC-17)
'It's not just Death Eaters that kill Muds. After the Second World War, the Muggle civil rights movements got started. Black rights, and feminism, and gay rights. We -- wizards -- we never had the sixties, because we just kept replaying the war, over and over again: Grindelwald in the forties, then Voldemort in the seventies, then Voldemort again in the nineties. I just hope this time it's really finished, and we can sort out our own fucking house.'

Hermione is back at school after a summer in the Muggle world, and everything is changing. But getting closer to Harry doesn't get her any closer to the war - until she's unexpectedly enrolled in the Order of the Phoenix, and meets Hestia Jones, the founder of Mud Pride.

Harry, Harry, Snape, and Bob by Perpetual Motion (PG)
After the war, Harry Potter and Severus Snape hook up. A few years later (and for reasons that are, frankly, silly) Snape runs away to America and blocks anyone from England from finding him. Thus, Harry has to find an American wizard. What luck that there's one right there in Chicago.

A Certain Kind of Fool by asnowyowl (NC-17)
A couple of years after Ginny dies due to complications from childbirth (of Lily), Harry moves himself and his children into Hogwarts in preparation for him teaching Muggle Studies. To absolutely everyone's surprise, Albus Severus takes a liking to Snape and, even more shocking, Snape finds himself taking a liking back. Complicating matters even more is Harry's increasingly odd behavior -- especially the fact that he no longer seems to be carrying a wand.

Nocturne by Tira Nog (NC-17)
'Nocturne' is one of my favorite vampire stories in the Potter'verse. Engaging, long, and void of the normal vampire cliches, it features a post-war life for Harry and Severus that is bleak, lonely, and a touch sad. That is, until they find one another and everything (slowly) changes.

Of Cabbages and Kings
Harry's health began to decline after the war and two years later he spends most of his time either asleep or exhausted to the point of near unconsciousness. Unexpectedly, it appears that Severus Snape may have something to do with his condition.

Cockroach Clusters, Please
After getting his ass handed to him in a Knockturn Alley duel, Harry decides he needs to learn how to make his own (more powerful) spells. Unfortunately, the only person he knows who has this ability is Snape and Harry's relationship with Severus Snape isn't one that allows for favors. The Half-Blood Prince, on the other hand...

The Sleeping Prince
Post-death-of-Voldemort, Snape is discovered to not be dead, but in a coma. A couple of weeks later, a mysterious cure comes from Dubmledore (beyond the grave, no less) that manages to wake Snape up. Unfortunately (or not, depending on your perspective) Snape doesn't quite wake up his old 38-year-old self.

Coincidentally enough, Harry has a little, er, *problem* that can only be cured by a massively complicated potion that only Severus is good enough to make. The solution? Marriage of course! If only Harry had bothered to ask if there was such a thing as divorce in the wizarding world...

Several years post-war, Dumbledore dies peacefully in his sleep. In his will he leaves his family estate to both Harry and Severus, with a proviso that if the two of them can't agree on what to do with the house the one who wants to sell will have to court the one who wants to keep it. Of course, they don't agree, and thus begins one of the sweetest, most romantic marriage of convenience fics ever written.

After defeating Voldemort, Harry ends up returning to Hogwarts as the assistant Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher. Who has taken over the previously cursed position? Why Severus, of course, who is handling DADA *and* potions while simultaneously recovering from a near-death encounter with Lucius Malfoy at the end of the war. No one mentions a time-turner, but I think it's implied.

The Care of Infants by Perfica aka stellahobbit (NC-17)
At some point in his seventh year (I think), Harry gets captured by Voldemort and is inadvertently turned into a baby in the ensuing duel. Severus breaks cover to rescue Harry and bring him back to Hogwarts. Now that Harry is helpless and Severus is the target of every Death Eater in Great Britain, Dumbledore bundles them up and sends them both to a safe house indefinitely. Bad enough that Severus finds himself taking care of an infant; things get exponentionally worse as Harry starts to grow up much faster than he should.

Mark of Cain by Beth H (NC-17)
After defeating Voldemort...Harry goes off to fight dragons in...well, somewhere that isn't England. He comes back to find that all Death Eaters have been executed except for Severus, who has been blessed/cursed with a visible magical aura that protects him from any form of attack (or, you know, any physical contact at all), but which also prevents him from using anything but the most minor forms of magic. Unable to find work in the Muggle world due to the aura and barely able to scrape by in the wizarding world, Severus reluctantly agrees to share lodging with Harry as Harry attempts to sort out his own life. If only they could get rid of that damn curse.

Snape: The Home Fries Nazi by pir8fancier (NC-17)
After Voldemort's death, everyone wearing a Death Mark lost their magic. Most were sent to Azkaban regardless, but a cleared Severus Snape disappeared. Three years later, Harry finds his own magic has mostly drained away (thanks to The Scar), and in desperation he tracks Snape down. At a diner. In Arizona. Where Snape has posted 'No Talking' and 'No Unruly Children' rules, hired a bunch of ex-cons, banned menus, and otherwise proceeded to be totally and completely awesome. Utterly lost and without any other options, Harry stays and tries to come to terms with the loss of his magic and, just maybe, find a more prosaic, but no less beautiful, magic in the world around him.

Pariah by Aucta Sinistra (PG-13)
Written pre-Book 7. In this possible outcome to the war Harry manages to defeat Voldemort, but at terrible cost to himself and to those around him. The wizarding world holds one hell of a grudge and, unable to take their relentless anger, Harry locks himself away in a Muggle mansion with only the occasional visit from Snape (delivering healing potions) and and endless stream of Howlers to connect him to the outside world. While Harry is healing physically, emotionally he is still in pieces, at least until he starts getting letters from an anonymous supporter. But will they be enough?
