Slytherin!Harry AU (x)
#no but slytherin harry would have been the ultimate choice from an authorial perspective#like the chosen one coming out of a house disgraced by racism and the dark arts#a living testament to the fact that slytherin house is the fast track to greatness and that good or evil is a CHOICE#also harry already had a brush with slytherin during his sorting and can speak parseltounge and all that awesome stuff#because lets be real harry is brave as hell but hes also cunning, determined to survive#a little duplicitious#and thrives on praise#slytherin harry could be besties with ron AND close to Draco#he could break down interhouse prejudice and be the bright light in a noble house that has fallen into darkness#he could put an end to the honestly awful Griffyndor/Slytherin bullying the GOES BOTH WAYS because screw this idea that you have to choose a side, that you have to compete with people who are different than you#and he could struggle with his inner demons the whole time#because characters that could easily go bad who get up every day choosing to be good will always be more important to me than inhernetly good ones
Please tell me there are some good fanfics like this.
…I love the Harry Potter books/movies, but holy shit. This. I would have loved it more if THIS had been how it’d happened can you imagine omg.
Throw in a very conflicted Snape into the mix too, because this kid wearing his tormentor’s face is in his house, etc. And a skeptical Dumbledore because his hero is not a fierce lion, but another snake like his spy. I just, the possibilities are ENDLESS.
I just, yeah. Someone write me a fanfic.
Sod the fanfic, I need a book series lmao XD
I call for a re-write!
I KNOW RIGHT?
JK, your fans have spoken GIVE IT TO US.
But seriously, just changing Harry to Slytherin would have…. made the message the book’s trying to tell so much more potent, don’t you think? Just a simple thing like that would have changed so many things!
yeah how about instead of writing the houses as ‘the good ones’ ‘the bad ones’ ‘the dumb ones’ and ‘the smart ones’ you throw in a little humanity
I NEED IT
Sherlock is old and dying and John sits by his hospital bed for hours and hours holding his hand and making him smile with old stories. And every night he argues with the nurse because he IS family and why can’t she see that if Sherlock dies tonight John needs to be there to hold him until the very last breath.
Things that shouldn’t have been cut out of the Harry Potter Movies: ST FUCKING MUNGO’S HOSPITAL FOR MAGICAL MALADIES AND INJURIES
ALSO THE FUCKING POINTS HOURGLASSES WHY WERE THESE THINGS CUT I AM SO ANGRY
AlSO THE HOUSE ELVES SWARMING OUT OF THE KITCHENS DURING THE BATTLE OF HOGWARTS

If you ever get sad just remember that Dean Winchester had a male siren, drunkenly flirted with a cute male cop, was visibly flustered around Dr. Sexy, blatantly checked out a sailor’s ass in 1944, got a boner for his best friend after he came out of the bathroom all spiffy and clean, and ran into a table after a cute boy hit on him.
And it’s all canon.
Don’t forget that he also taught a lesbian how to flirt with a guy!
"no homo tho" - the writers
200. Muggleborns singing pop songs in the common room and then everyone joins in. The purebloods get startled when they hear a quiet “I knew you were trouble when you walked in…” one moment, and then the next they’re blasted with “NOW I’M LYIN’ ON THE COLD HARD GROUND!”, and then something that sounds like mass screaming. One of the more sensitive students actually calls for a prefect.
