Well, can we really trust Snape? I would say yes, but there would be people saying no

You're right, we don't know for sure if Petigrew was in Gryffindor - but what is the likelihood of a three Gryffindors being friends with a Slytherin - maybe he was in Hufflepuff
Actually, Crystal, I believe that there is canon that Peter was not acting for what he thought was the best. In the Shrieking Shack seen in PoA, Peter says 'he [Voldemort] would have killed me' - nothing saying that he thought he was acting for the best. Anyway, I agree with you.

At that moment and for the foreseeable future, you could be right.

But people change in very unexpected ways in 7 years. I never imagined I'd be married to who I'm married to, with all the other details that comprise my life right now. These are teenagers, so they're changing and developing far more rapidly than I have in the past 7 years (since I was 19), so it's possible that once or twice the Sorting Hat didn't see what was going to happen.

I think we need more information as to the nature of this Sorting Hat.

I just don't think the Sorting Hat could have lasted so long if there was the possibility of it being wrong!

Well, why would you complain once you are sorted, have your friends there and got used to it?

Along the same line, in a thousand years it's NEVER been wrong?

What about Wormtail?

Why would Tom be wrong? And Dumbledore? If you mean the Sorting Hat, I don't think that it could have been wrong. It sees things about you that you yourself can't see.

Sure they would. The connections from Slythern.

I agree, though, the house would probably be much smaller if they were ALL like Draco, if for no other reason than that they all killed each other off earlier in life.

Yes, that you yourself can't see... CURRENTLY. But can it see into the future, and all the choices you have to make, and how you'll make them and how they'll affect you?

Seems like a lot for a hat to do.

No, it can't see the future , but it can see your blood. Or in Harry's case you're transferred powers.

But blood doesn't always tell. Take Sirius Black, for instance. He was related to DEs, but he fought for The Other Side (TM).

In most cases, that'd probably work. I still don't think it could be right 100% of the time, though.

Yes but that can't work for Voldemort having Slytherin's blood. It would just think 'oh you have Slytherin's blood - into Slytherin you go'.

Can you rephrase that for me? I'm not getting what you're saying.

Who in the... wha? *is confused again*

What does Draco having or not having a broken arm have to do with anything? *is perplexed and puzzled and kerflummoxed*
