“Or perhaps in Slytherin, you’ll make your real friends, those cunning folks use any means, to achieve their ends.”- The Sorting Hat.

Resourceful, cunning, ambitious and determined; Slytherin aren’t all bad but they certainly don’t make the best role models! Imagine if Harry Potter had taken Malfoy’s hand in that first scene in the Hogwarts Entrance Hall? Or if The Sorting Hat had decided to ‘Help him on his way to greatness’ by putting him in the Slytherin house after all? It came so close!
