Default Snape, Harry a slytherin
so you can convince yourself that im cute

I have been pondering this in my little mind for a while

what if Harry had indeed been sorted into Slytherin?

would snape still hate him? how would he react and would he be more tolerant, even warming to lilys/harrys eyes??

If Harry had indeed been sorted into Slytherin,Snape would appreciate Harry a heck of a lot more.That would also give Snape the chance to see that Harry isn't exactly like his father.

But then,Harry wouldn't be friends with Hermoine and Ron.

Just to throw my thoughts out there

I'd hope that Snape would have taken Harry under his wing a bit, he is Lily's daughter after all.

I think that a lot of people would have been quite wary of Harry as well. I mean I think its mentioned in one of the books that some people thought Harry would grow up to be a Dark Wizard. I'm thinking Harry would have been a positive influence on Slytherin though, as opposed to Slytherin being a negative one on him!

I kind of picture Harry still trying to sneak out so he can hang with Ron and Hermione. And for that, I think Snape would still act nasty toward him.

I can't see Harry still being friends with Ron and Hermione if he were sorted into Slytherin. Especially not Ron, Ron hates Slytherin too much.

I doubt that there would be much of a change about the relationship between Harry and Snape. Maybe Snape might think a second time while deciding his personality because, as you know, he bases his ideas about Harry on prejudices.

Well, if Harry had been sorted into Slytherin, he wouldn't have been Harry. Because to Harry, Slytherin stood for pure-bloodism, dark arts and arrogance, which were things, that he despised already from a young age. I also have a feeling, that The Chosen One couldn't have been a Slytherin, as Voldemort was as Slytherin as you can get, and The Chosen One had to to his equal, but also his polar opposite. So instead, Harry was a true Gryffindor, just like his parents were.

But hypothetically, if Harry had been a totally different person and been sorted into Slytherin... Well, Snape would have been very surprised, that James's and Lily's son had become a Slytherin, as I think it's very rare, that two Gryffindors have a Slytherin child. And maybe that surprise would make Snape give Harry a chance, which he wouldn't do, when he was a Gryffindor. And yes, he would also have gotten to know him better, as he would have been in his house. But like I said earlier, Harry wouldn't have been Harry, if he was in Slytherin, so it's almost an unanswerable question.

Don't scare me.
If Harry had been a Slythie, than Voldemort would still be alive, and we'd all be dead!
Think like this.
If Harry had been a Snake, then he would have been a DeathEater.
Then, he'd be happy to die for Voldemort!

My point exactly. Harry wouldn't have been Harry, if he had been a Slytherin.

That is horrible!

Voldemort would have the sorcerers stone.
The basilisk would have killed Ginny.
Sirius would be in Askaban.
Voldemort would have taken over hogwarts by then.

My words, exactly.
Harry definitely wouldn't be himself and it would be kind of a betrayal to all the Slytherins seeing how he was before he entered Hogwarts. Plus, I don't think Dumbledore would have as much respect for him as he did since he specifically chose not to be in Slytherin, but any other house.
Snape might've had a high appreciation for Lily's son to make into Slytherin though. D:

He didn't die for Voldemort. He died so he could stop Voldemort. Big difference.

He didn't die at all, if I'm not mistaken?

Wasn't he hit with a killing curse, but he didn't really die himself, but only the part of Voldemort's soul, that was inside him, was destroyed?

I think Harry would be on Snape's good side a bit more, since he favors his own house. Even if he did break the rules Snape would just look past it.

That's right. Snape doesn't mind rule-breaking, as long as it's a Slytherin doing it. It's only Gryffindors, who are arrogant and attention-seeking, if they break the rules.

I think snape would still dislike him because he'd still look and act alot like his dad. That was the big reason Snape didn't like him.

Huh, this is interesting. :D

For the most part, I agree with Furienna; Harry wouldn't have been Harry should he have been sorted into Slytherin. It would have been a huge chain reaction; Harry would definitely have become dark, thus making Voldemort not too keen to kill anymore, I think - he'd probably become his heir somewhere down the line, especially if Snape tells him about Harry. Snape himself? He probably would have been so shocked, and thus, relenting on Harry. Perhaps would have grown to genuinely like him. However, I think it would have taken a long, long effort on BOTH parts for this to work, just like it would have for Gryffindor.

If Harry had been sorted into Slytherin,everything would be totally different.
But,I think that Snape would still hate him.Maybe not that much,but,after all Harry is son oh his worst enemy.And another fact:Harry looks exactly like James.
About Ron & Hermione:noI don't think that Harry could be friend with them.
So,there will be no trio.Sad.
Luckily,Harry had been sorted into Gryffindor,and we don't have to worry about that.

I agree with Bookworm. I think Snape would probally tolerate Harry more because he is in Slytherin because he favores everyone in his own house, but the fact is that Harry is James' son. And Snape wanted Lily to be with him. I think that no matter what Snape would bid ill will toward Harry. He just couldn't get over the fact that Lily chose James.

I think Snape would be more open to him. I think he didn't like him because he went to Gryffindor, Slytherin's rivals, and become popular there. If he had been in his own house, he would have been more proud. I think that he always would have been quite cruel to him, however, just because he is Harry Potter, the son of James Potter.

The books just wouldn't be the same if Harry went to Slytherin, anyway!

If Harry was in Slytherin, Snape probably would have respected him more. However, since he was in Gryffindor, it just made their relationship worse cause James was in Gryffindor.

poor Snape ... It was sure hard for him, to see Harry in the eyes. Every time when he saw Harry, he remember to Lily Evans his big love. And it's his fault, that she dies .. what a life. I can understand Snape, even I didn't like him. He hated James, because Lily married him ... poor Snape

I think that if Harry was a slitherin then Snape would probably like him more but I don't think that they would ever be close. Also he would not have been bullied in potions so he might have been a bit better at it. Anyway great question.
