    Summary

    The thing about Dumbledore was that he favored telling people what he thought they needed to hear, rather than telling them the plain truth. For example, when he told Harry Potter in second year that only a true Gryffindor could pull Godric's sword out of the Sorting Hat, he was just trying to reassure a student who was uncertain they belonged to their House. He was, however, not only lying, but wrong. A Hogwarts student belongs to *all* the Houses, and many things other than a sword have sprung mysteriously from the Sorting Hat.

    (or)

    The four Founders of Hogwarts were by no means the greatest or most powerful wixen ever known, but on Hogwarts grounds and over Hogwarts students, their influence is sacrosanct. Whether through the magic of the Sorting Hat and the castle itself, or some other cunning, mysterious means of reaching through time, help will always be given at Hogwarts to those who ask for it.

    Summary

    Older men declare war. But it is the youth that must fight and die. —Herbert Hoover

    This, then, is what happens when heroes live long enough to become legends: A boy with a once upon a time etched into his forehead says "No". And the world doesn't like it, doesn't accept it, certainly doesn't forget it, but it listens.

    {It wasn't Slytherin that made Tom Riddle great.}

     

    A.k.a. What if — perish the thought — Slytherin house just wasn't that special?
