Having never really gotten over Harry Potter, I often find myself of an evening, trawling the web for content relating to my favorite boy wizard who became a man... wizard.

As such, my very typical evening lead me to a lovely little article on Buzzfeed where the guys over there had aggregated content from Tumblr where people were taking the Potter fandom too seriously... and creating great content because of it!

One particular aggregation caught my eye however, and having blown my mind, I felt it was too good not to share with everyone over here.

Behold the startling revelation one Tumblr user came across:

Oh my feelings, good lord.

It's really rather beautiful how well this works.

Radcliffe's emotive and pained expression confirms that as suspected, Harry would have been the world's first 'good' Slytherin. There's none of the smugness we've come to expect from the likes of Draco Malfoy and Pansy Parkinson.

All I see is world of possibilities for a torn and conflicted Harry. Possibilities that were only touched upon in Book 5 (or is it 4?) when Harry found out his father was a bit of a dick. Imagine Harry a last minute revelation where Harry discovered Snape was his father all along? (Which I believe was a popular fan theory for a while)

Tumblr is running away with my imagination, and in a post Harry Potter world, that can only be a good thing.


Would Harry have been a 'good' Slytherin?
