You see JK Rowlings made few flaw in her books.

This is one of them.

Remember Harry was too afraid join Slytherin?

His father, James Potter was a Gryffindor, yet he was bullying Snape (as we all know he was a house of Slytherin).

Ps: I am too bored.

There are a few glaring ones... When Harry wanted to become an auror in the 6th part he was told that no new witches/wizards were recruited in the auror department in the last 3 years, whereas in the previous book we found Tonks to have recently joined the department as an apprentice under Moody.

Harry was afraid to join Slytherin because he was told that's horrible... Had someone explained to him properly like he did to his son, he wouldn't have felt that scared.

Noo, you define the house

Just a few?? lol
@Quizzical Eheheheh.. I'm too lazy to list them all. 🤭
There are mistakes and there are acts of characters which are very odd given their personal creed.

Why couldn't Harry Potter see thestrals right in the first year? It's kind of hard to avoid seeing someone die when they literally jump in front of you catching the killing blast.

Why Voldemort unceremoniously killed a pureblood James but was willing to spare muggle-born Lily? It doesn't make much sense.
@TheIncredibleHulka No, it's definitely not a mistake. It's just interesting fact that makes me wonder if it was intentional or just, as you say, a flaw. Like maybe he was oblivious to him more than to others because he saw himself in him a little bit - being half-blood, hating his own Muggle father.

@CrazyMusicLover Rowling created her characters with so much depth, it leaves much to reader's interpretation.
@TheIncredibleHulka Yes, I like how she left certain things unexplained. 😌

"your house don't define you." Agreed. I think we define our house. Ravenclaw may mean something different to me than any other Ravenclaw.

I never got into her books, too wholesome.
@Allelse Expensive too. But, if her collection become one of my assignment, I am delighted to work on it. 😚

i wouldnt say harry was afraid to join slytherin, makes it sound like he was being a coward. he was afraid of what it would mean to be a part of slytherin, as in, theyre all bad eggs, and he didnt want to be a bad egg.
theres no denying theres some inconsistencies throughout the story but i thought this was straightforward, you end up where you want to be
