Since I never claimed that anyone aside from Harry *asked*, and never
claimed that only those who *ask* get sorted where they want to go, this
really isn't important.
Of course it's important! The whole point is that the only example we
have of 'choice' is of someone who *doesn't* want to be in a
It's still quite simple. People who want a particular house go there.
We could even say that this happens even when the sortee wants a house
for the wrong reasons (Pettigrew, and perhaps Cormac as well). Everyone
else gets sorted according to their values system.
We don't really have evidence of that. Only, as said above, that one
person was able to ask *not* to be placed in a house... not the
alternative.. and that the request was granted.
And, let's note, the *major* point that is constantly overlooked is
the courage it took for Harry in that highly stressful situation to
question the hat's decision!!
Perhaps it was Harry's courage in questioning the hat's original
choice that was the deciding factor and not Harry's request that he
not be placed in Slytherin.
News and views... for people like youse!!
One important point is that the hat was deciding between Griffendore
and Slytheine and when Harry said, Not Slytherine, it put him into
Griffendore. Would the hat have put him into Ravenclaw if he begged
for it? I'd guess no. My guess is that its only when the hat
doesn't have a clear cut choice does the student wishes come into
