On the Way to Greatness
is an Alternate Universe Harry Potter
fanfic by mira mirth
where Harry was sorted into Slytherin.
- Anti-Hero: Harry
- Badass Bookworm: Harry especially, but also Hermione, Neville and Harry's Ravenclaw friends.
- Darker and Edgier: Obviously darker than the books, as Harry being a Slytherin gives him a very cynical outlook.
- Deadpan Snarker: With our protagonist being sorted into the House that values cleverness, it should come as no surprise that he develops a tendency for this. Blaise and Millie apply as well.
- For Want of a Nail: The whole premise is that Harry got sorted into Sytherin.
- Not So Different: Aside from the usual parallels in canon, this Harry is much less reluctant to use the Dark Arts, to the point where some of the Death Eaters see him as this.
- Power Trio: Harry, Blaise Zabini and Millicent Bulstrode form this in Slytherin.
