----
!!Harry's New Home provides examples of:
* ALessonLearnedTooWell: Snape tells Harry he should be careful and not trust Dumbledore because whether good intentions or not Dumbledore is responsible for Harry getting placed in an abusive home. Harry takes his advice and starts to fear Dumbledore more than he does Voldemort to Snape's horror.
* AbusiveParents
* AccidentalMisnaming: Harry calls Voldemort Vol-au-Vent and Voldesnort. Snape decides to stop trying to correct Harry after a while.
* AccompliceByInaction: Snape and Harry come to fear Dumbledore when they both realize he didn't check up on Harry, enabling the Dursley's abuse or when Dumbledore didn't insist that Sirius get a trial.
* ActionDad: Snape puts a lot of work into [[PapaWolf seeing that Harry is safe.]]
* ActionGirl: Amelia Bones.
* ActionMom: Molly, a former Wizarding Duel champion, really gets to show her stuff.
* ActionSurvivor: Harry is essentially this with Snape planning and executing most of the adventures.
* AdultFear: Often. Snape does not appreciate it.
* AffectionateNickname: Harry eventually christens Snape [[HeartwarmingMoments 'Da.']]
* AgeAppropriateAngst: Lampshaded by Hermione and Ron when Harry is moping about not spending time with Snape. To avoid embarrassing him, they say it's only because he's not used to Snape the way they are used to their parents.
* AllAmazonsWantHercules: Jones is mightily impressed that Percy jumped in to save her and Harry from Umbridge.
* AntiHero: Harry fears becoming this after he [[spoiler: crushes Quirrel with a stone pumpkin]]. In-story, there is Snape, Draco and Jones.
* ApologizesALot: Harry at first much to Snape's annoyance.
* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: The only one who seems oblivious to this is Snape. [[EveryoneCanSeeIt Everybody can see]] how much he cares for and protects Harry all the time.
* BadassAdorable: Harry.
* BadassAndChildDuo: Snape and Harry.
* BadassGrandpa: Dumbledore, Flitwick and Moody.
* BadBoss: Snape shows signs of this in regards to [[spoiler: Lucius Malfoy.]] A simple assignment from the former? [[spoiler: Overthrow the government in the next few months.]] Backfires when the latter tries to gain some recognition.
* BattleCouple: Percy and Jones.
* TheBeastMaster: Harry and snakes.
* BerserkButton: Blood Quills. This literally sent the entire faculty of Howgarts out for blood. [[CoolOldGuy Dumbledore]] nearly hunted down Dolores when he was informed of this.
** Percy literally lost it when he learned one of the bullies nearly Crucio'ed Ron.
** Insulting Harry, even from miles away, is a bad way to get on Dobby's bad side as shown in chapter 58 where he appeared out of nowhere to beat up Kreacher.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Percy did ''not'' like it when one of Harry's bullies almost Crucio'ed Ron.
* BreakTheHaughty: Draco Malfoy. Dumbledore in a more benign soft kind of way, specially so during the Horcrux hunting (Advice: don't put the soul sucking ring on your finger)
* BigDamnHeroes: When Harry was Ambushed by Ravenclaw students, he was rescued by Hermione (who breaks a student's ankle) Ron Weasley, Draco Malfoy, the Twins, Marcus Flint and [[DarkActionGirl Jones]].
** An Epic one during the [[spoiler: Rescue mission against Death Eaters. From champion Duelist Molly to Remus ripping apart Death Eaters left and right]].
* CheerfulChild: Harry, so long as he's around Ron, Hermione or Snape.
* TheChessMaster: Snape becomes this after rescuing Black from Azkaban. And become more and more deadly during the fic.
* ClusterFBomb: Sirius. Justified, he's been in Azkaban for 10 years.
* CombatPragmatist: Slytherins believe in [[AFriendInNeed strength in numbers]] and [[{{Blackmail}} airing enemies' dirty laundry.]]
* CoolBigSis: Davidella Jones and Katie Bell.
* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: [=McGonagall's=] more... ''atypical'' detentions.
-->"Did I say you were forbidden to use magic to complete the task?"
* CuddleBug: Harry [[TheGlomp LOVES]] hugging Snape.
* CutHisHeartOutWithASpoon: Again, [=McGonagall=]. She deliberately makes Blood Quills look mild. (See [[spoiler: ImAHumanitarian]] for details.)
* DarkActionGirl: Davidella Jones.
* DarkHumor : Mad-eye, as seen when he [[spoiler:dubs the partially liquified Pettigrew "Pettigoo"]].
* DarkIsNotEvil[=/=]LightIsNotGood: Being from Slytherin doesn't automatically make you a Death Eater and being from any of the other three Houses doesn't mean you ''can't'' be one as we find out from several Ravenclaws.
* DirtyCoward: Deconstructed. Slytherins encourage pragmatism and bringing back-up to a fight but anyone who totally abandons one's House and those protected by said House is considered the lowest of the low, Slytherin or not.
* DirtyOldWoman: Madame Hooch is [[EatingTheEyeCandy very vocal about her enjoyment]] of Snape's new look. She's also about 30 years his elder.
* {{Doorstopper}}: 64 chapters and over 300,000 words.
* TheDreaded: Hermione becomes this after Harry's ambush. While breaking the wand of a fallen foe was considered "hardcore", her explanation of Muggle dentistry gave her the top spot for the "not mess with" list in the entire school.
** Dumbledore became this for Harry for more than half of the fic.
* FantasticRacism: Played straight with the Death Eaters obviously and with Umbridge who calls Jones an island person who practices hoo doo despite the fact the girl was born in Brighton.
* FearlessFool: Deconstructed with Harry who lacks a sense of self-defense (and of self-preservation) thanks to his upbringing, allowing him to put himself in danger without a thought, much to Snape's annoyance and horror.
* FightsLikeANormal: Hermione, who kicks people in the knees, ankles and [[BreadEggsMilkSquick nuts]] and [[LittleMissBadass will slam your head into the floor.]]
* FixFic: One of the best written in the entire Potter Fandom. It avoids Mary Sues, superpowered versions, wangst and bashing and is so cutesy and epic that it would give you both diabetes and testosterone poison just by reading it.
* FourTemperamentEnsemble: Ron is sanguine, Hermione is choleric, Harry is melancholic and Draco is phlegmatic.
* FromBadToWorse: He had to ask.
-->'''Albus:''' Oh, Severus? (pokes head around the corner) Did Minerva mention your appointment to the Inter-House Friendship and Holiday Decoration Committee?
* TheGadfly: Dumbledore just loves teasing Snape about his parenting Harry.
* GroinAttack: ''[[ShareTheMalePain Castrato]]'' '''''[[StuffBlowingUp Explosivo.]]''''' And HOLY CRAP.
* GuileHero: Snape and [=McGonagall=].
* HappilyAdopted: Harry.
* HarmfulToMinors: [[spoiler: Splatting someone's head with a stone pumpkin]] even if [[PayEvilUntoEvil they deserve it,]] is not something eleven-year-olds should do or see.
* TheHeart: Harry becomes some form of this, thanks to being Snape's ward. Because of it, [[EnemyMine the Gryffindors and Slytherins are more willing to cooperate.]]
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Thanks to Snape's past misdeeds, it allow Umbridge to act scott free against the students of Howgarts, especially against Harry. Needless to say, [=McGonagall=] was grimly amused by Snape's cries of unfairness and abuse.
* HonoraryUncle: Ron and Percy called Snape "Uncle Sev", much to his mortification. And Harry calls [=McGonagall=] "Auntie Min" later on.
** CoolUncle: And Aunt.
* HotTeacher: Snape, after his make-over.
* HumiliationConga: Fudge gets one of these, starting with his most trusted advisor unfurling a banner that reads, "FUDGE IS AN IDIOT."
* HypocriticalHeartwarming: It doesn't matter what Snape may call Harry or how he acts with him, if you dare to insult, abuse or bully him in any way he will rip out your own intestine and beat you with them.
* HypocriticalHumor: [[HumanoidAbomination Voldemort]] calls [[FightsLikeANormal Hermione]] an ABOMINATION.
* IWantGrandkids: [[FunnyMoments Lily!]]
* InsaneTrollLogic: Snape can literally count how far the IQ of his fellow teachers drops any time somebody says "Quidditch".
** As far Snape is concerned, this is how ''that brat's'' mind works all the time.
* ImagineSpot: When things get too absurd, Snape mentally pens, "Dear (magazine's advice column/Voldemort), I am currently (dealing with playing daddy to the Boy Who Lived). Would (snarky/overkill reaction) be within the norm? Is it considered poor form to cut my own throat rather than suffer through such an excruciating evening?"
* ImAHumanitarian: [[spoiler: [=McGonagall=]]]. If you use a Blood Quill on her students, anyway.
* IntergenerationalFriendship: Between Harry, Sirius and Remus.
* IronLady: [=McGonagall=], natch. Also Madame Bones,[[spoiler: especially after she becomes Minister of Magic.]]
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: Upon seeing how happy Harry is with Snape, Sirius chooses not to fight for custody.
* KickTheSonOfABitch: What both Snape and [=McGonagall=] do to Dolores and Fudge after they try to attack Harry. While Snape managed to personally destroy Fudge's career, [=McGonagall=] takes the cake by [[spoiler: Transfiguring and devouring Dolores alive]].
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:[[LudicrousGibs Quirrel]], [[EatenAlive Umbridge]] and [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill Voldemort]]]] definitely ain't comin' back.
* LickedByTheDog: Harry's near-hero worship of Snape defrosts most other people's concerns about him.
* LittleMissBadass: Hermione.
* MaamShock: Sirius is horrified when Harry call him "sir" and Mr. Black to be polite. Snape snarks that screaming at Harry and freaking out won't make him stop.
* {{Malaproper}}: Harry mixes up wizarding terms to the point of RunningGag.
* MamaBear: At difference to her canon counterpart, [=McGonagall=] is ''extremely'' protective of her lions and she will [[spoiler: devour you alive if you mess with them]].
* MassOhCrap : Pretty much sums up the reaction of male upper years when they realize what spell Jones is about to use (see GroinAttack).
* MoodWhiplash: "The Case of the Mysterious Turban" quickly devolves into [[spoiler:"Don't Get Killed by Quirrel or Voldemort."]]
* MyGreatestFailure: It nearly broke Dumbledore when he realized Harry was afraid of him.
* [[MugglesDoItBetter Muggles Do It Hardcore]]: After Hermione's explanation, nobody ever doubted that Muggles are 1) Psychopaths, 2) Unyielding, 3) [[{{Metalocalypse}} More Metal than the blackest black, times INFINITY]].
* NeverMessWithGranny: [=McGonagall=], of course. Also, [[GreenThumb Sprout.]]
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: As much as [[spoiler: Lucius Malfoy]] counts as a hero, anyway.
* NotSoAboveItAll: Snape. [[HilarityEnsues Often.]]
* OddFriendship: Snape strikes one up with [=McGonagall=], Sirius, Lupin and Molly Weasley. Also Hermione with Jones and Ron with Draco.
* OhCrap: [[spoiler: The two Death Eaters holding down Snape consider changing career paths when they see Harry arise from being Avada-ed.]]
* PapaWolf: No matter how much Snape denies it, he would go to any length, break any rule, face the Dark Lord and Dumbledore himself without hesitation if it mean Harry's protection. Soon enough most of the Wizarding World learned not to mess with Harry.
** Lucius Malfoy is a more chilly, stern type.
** Likewise with Dumbledore. He nearly hunted down Umbridge when he found out she used a Blood Quill on Harry. Also in the prequel, his casual warning to Snape if he should ever harm a student again.
* ParentalSubstitute: Snape to Harry, as well as Molly and Arthur Weasley.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: Flitwick is considered the best duelist of the entire faculty [[spoiler: and he demonstrated why during the last battle against the Death Eaters]].
* PowerOfTrust: Snape finds himself simultaneously frightened and heartened by the nearly blind trust Harry has in him and annoyed by [[HeartwarmingMoments his continued attempts to live up to it.]]
* PsychicNosebleed: Hermione experiences this trying to save Harry from falling to his death in chapter 26. Even still, [[{{Determinator}} she keeps trying.]]
* RefugeInAudacity: Death Eater Black [[spoiler: Granted Asylum in Switzerland!]] ''Really'', [[MagnificentBastard Snape]]?
* RunningGag: Snape's [[ImagineSpot imaginary letters to various publications and people.]]
* SadistTeacher: Snape tries to be this. See SternTeacher below.
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: Wizards do love their big words.
* SeriousBusiness: Quidditch, to Snape's detriment. From forgetting that a student nearly killed himself in a broom to nearly starting a brawl in the great hall ''by the teachers'', Quidditch certainly brings out the best and the worst of wizards.
* ServileSnarker: Snape is this to Dumbledore.
* ShoutOut: One of the books Harry picks out is titled [[Literature/TheHobbit "There and Back Again"]].
* SmallNameBigEgo: Lucius Malfoy.
* SnarkKnight: Snape.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: [[spoiler:Dumbledore, Snape, Sirius, Lupin, Fred Weasley, Hedwig and Tonks.]]
** DeathByAdaptation: [[spoiler:Umbridge.]]
* SpitTake: Snape, of all people, in response to [=McGonagall=]'s "[[TheUmbridge Something]] [[ImAHumanitarian I]] [[CoolAndUnusualPunishment ate.]]"
* SternTeacher: Snape ends up being this, while trying to be a SadistTeacher. Most of his punishments are actually helpful, as Harry frequently points out. Snape constantly blames Harry and his friends for ruining his reputation.
** CoolTeacher: To [[SpringtimeForHitler his horror.]]
* SurroundedByIdiots: When you get to know the point of view of Snape for all the decisions around Hogwarts, especially Potter, you can't not only sympathize but wonder how Snape hasn't just [[IncrediblyLamePun snapped]] already.
* TakeThat: To the Evil!Dumbledore
* TallDarkAndSnarky: Snape again.
* TheyCallMeMisterTibbs: After the MaamShock above, Sirius tells Harry to address him by his name as opposed to Mr. Black.
* TooDumbToLive: [[spoiler:Umbridge]]'s utter lack of self preservation when dealing with an enraged [[ActionDad Snape]] and [[NeverMessWithGranny McGonagall]] during her "Potter Should Be Silenced" spiel ends poorly. Even ''[[DarkActionGirl Jones]]'' admits to being frightened of an angry [=McGonagall=].
* TrueCompanions: Harry, Ron, Hermione and Draco plus others.
* {{Tsundere}}: Take a wild guess who.
* UglyGuyHotWife: While Percy is not ugly, he is defined as plain while Jones is often described as a very beautiful, willowy... and absolutely scary witch. Like a "saner, controlled version of Bellatrix Lestrange".
* UnstoppableRage: Snape has to be ''pried'' off of TheUmbridge after [[ToThePain the Blood Quill incident]].
* VillainsActHeroesReact: Inverted. Dumbledore may be content to react but Snape acts and acts fast.
* VillainousRescue: Slytherin, as far as Hogwarts is concerned. But say what you will about the house, when one of their "Firsties" was in trouble, literally the entire House was moved to battle in seconds. As Harry's attackers learned the hard way.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Ron and Draco enjoy arguing.
* {{WAFF}}
* WaterWakeUp: When Snape visits Lupin at his home when the other man is asleep, he wakes him up with a Aquamenti to the face.
* WhatCouldPossiblyGoWrong: with [[spoiler:knocking off a few Death Eater relatives, Lucius]]? [[WhatAnIdiot What, indeed.]]
* WitchWithACapitalB: This story features Umbridge in all her horribleness.
