Pottermore Sorting - a Slytherin

^ J.K. Rowling, via Pottermore, affirms what I've known since the first time I read Philosopher's Stone: I'm pretty sure I'd be in Slytherin ... Oh, yes, I definitely would be ... And, yes. I'm still bitter about the house cup.

I agree with Richard -- thank you for such a sensible take on things. I laughed at the thought that I might actually be citing myself from one question to another :)) But it is important to me that the person who introduces a certain topic into the conversation in a given question be given some kudos! It's only fair, I think. :)

@anaranjada -- Yes, as Rand al'Thor has already pointed out. Unfortunately, too much time has passed for me to edit my comment. I don't want to delete it because it does have a useful link in it. :)

@Randal'Thor -- Yes. The OP's description of the fic in question doesn't seem to highlight any sci-fi or fantasy themes per se; simply being set in the HP universe doesn't mean a fic will feature sci-fi or fantasy (although one might think it would!). Regardless, I was trying to point the OP to an archive with a search tool that may be more useful to them. :)

Hey there. This site isn't for identifying fan fic (especially fan fic that doesn't feature sci-fi or fantasy, which your description doesn't indicate the fic you're looking for does). I'd suggest trying the Help! I'm looking for... forum at Fiction Alley, which is a wonderful, and sizable, fic archive dedicated to Harry Potter fan fiction. You might have better luck there. :)

comment Who gave Harry Potter his scar, and how did it shape itself like lightning bolt?
Regarding your question about how often Harry's scar hurts -- we'd have to paw through canon and count how many times Harry's scar hurt, which would be tedious and would take forever! However, this question addresses why Harry's scar hurts, when it does, which might be helpful to you. :)

I don't understand your reference to Dumbledore after Snape kills him -- are you suggesting that Dumbledore ended up with a lightning-shaped scar after Snape hit him with Avada Kedavra? Would you clarify what you mean and why you included that bit from Half-Blood Prince? I've been active in HP fandom since 2002, and I've never encountered a fan theory that the lightning-shaped scar was due to Voldemort's wand movement (i.e. there was no "Swish and flick!" involved. :)
