Late one night, I started thinking.
And then quickly later, I started drawing.
This might be a little controversial but can we all just imagine for a minute if Harry Potter was infact put in the Slytherin house?
5 Things that would change:
1: Well first of all, nobody would be weird about his little “speaking to snakes” bit. The rest of the Slytherins would probably be like “Yeah man, Harry talks to snakes. We all do. Be afraid.”
And then, Hermione would correct them all. Yet! It’s all in good faith.
2: He’d probably still be friends with the Weasleys and Hermione, but he would even have the chance the befriend and change the path that Draco Malfoy was on. Maybe, rid him of his ignorance.
They’d probably all be chill and hate on the mean and rude Slytherins.
3: Draco Malfoy would have a chance at being good. A real chance. Not a “my dad pushed me into this awful life and no one is giving me a way out.”
4: Harry would play for the Slytherin Quidditch cup! They’d have an amazing seeker and maybe even a fair chance at winning with Harry on their side.
5: But more importantly, the impact of Harry on the Green team would be greater on the people reading the books. It’d stop this fetishism of the Gryffindors and would even point out their flaws instead of putting them all in the spotlight. As if they can do no wrong.
The whole “all Slytherins are bad” stereotype would eventually live to die.
Are ya’ll even aware that Merlin was a Slytherin? No one ever brings that bit up!
I know this seems a little weird. If you’re confused at all- I suggest you think of my posts as the ramblings of a mad man and not contemplate too much on what I’m saying.
But yes, I’m a Slytherin and I’m very bitter about these things.
A little video to showcase my point…
Now that my rant is mostly over, I invite you all to follow for more of my drawings (all with their own fascinating rants such as this one.)
And I’ll leave you all with a question: What house are you in? How do you relate to the house? How would the books change to you if Harry was a Slytherin?
