Slytherin!Harry AU (x)

#slytherin harry would have been the ultimate choice from an authorial perspective #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 parseltongue and all that awesome stuff #because lets be real harry is brave as hell but hes also cunning, determined to survive #a little duplicitous #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 that 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 inherently good ones
