    For years, we all believed that Harry Potter was the Chosen One, the one destined to save the wizarding world from Lord Voldemort, He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named. BUT, have we been duped? Is it possible that our lightning-bolted boy wonder isn't as special as we thought? What is there was ANOTHER Chosen One? What if it all boiled down to a coin flip? Then Harry Potter would just be an average kid. Maybe there's a universe out there where Harry should be THANKING Lord Voldemort...but I'll leave that to you to judge!

    Jk Rowling should write a series of books that have Nevile as the hero with his own past friends adventures, something new... Like Voldemort using other horcruxes and new type of spells and so on. For exemple in the first movie instead of Harry fighting Voldemort over the philosopher stone Nevile would fight voldemort in other form of his (not on the back of some one for exemple) over other artifact a hole new one ! With Harry being the nevile of the story and so on. Basically a hole new story with only slight connections on the Harry Potter story.

    Harry didn't kill Voldemort. Neville didn't kill Voldemort. IRON MAN killed Voldemort when he snapped the infinity gauntlet in Avengers Endgame.

    I honestly think the reason the spell backfired in godric hollows was because the core of Voldemorts wand was the brother core of Harry's future wand. Voldemorts wand never worked properly against Harry. Because if Voldemort never received his wand Harry could have easily have received that wand instead.

    Wasn't this why Neville's parents were killed in the first place? Voldemort wasn't sure which boy would be the chosen one so they went after the Longbottom family. Or am I wrong?

    Think of a parallel universe where Neville is the chose and the one everyone associate with the boy who lived and Harry Potter is just the character who never gets attention in anything more than being the unlucky boy.
    Think how weird that world would’ve been

    When it’s broken down EVEN more we see that instead of Voldemort making the choice it was J.K. Rowling who chose to make Harry the CO. Maybe, just maybe, Voldemort was working for J.K. Rowling the whole time. Dun Dun Dunnnnnnnnnnnnnn.
