Just maybe...

Maybe if Harry weren' t so much like his father, nene of
the terrible things in the books would have happened.
Maybe if Harry hadn' t been a dick to snape in the first
book and just asked why Shape hated his dad (a man
Harry knew next to nothing about) rather than just
assuming he was evil he could have confided in snape
what he knew about the dragon egg and how sameone
knew to get past fluffy he could have warned the other
members of staff and then they could have tackled
Voldemort without Ron needing to get seriously injured.
Maybe if Harry and Shape had a better relationship
Snape wouldnt have thought it was he, Ron and
Hermionie that were stealing the ingredients for polyjuice
potion and Snape could have told Dumbledore and they' d
have figured out whe was messing around with the
tournament and Harry would never have fallen into
Voldermorts hands meaning he wouldn' t have been
revived and Ced rm wouldnt have died, ner would anyone
else whe suffered at the hands of ' s death
Maybe if Harry listened to everyone else whe told him
ever and ever that "Du Trusts Him" and not
been a little prick with a stick up his ass
whe always had to be rig ht he would have cared mere
about Snape' s lessons and ;
meaning Sirius wouldn' t have to have died because he
was a little idiot whe went out of his way time and time
again, never trusting those arm: him whe were old
enough to know what they were doing he wouldn' t have
gotten the closest thing he had left to his family killed.
Fred wouldn' t have died.
Lupin' s child wouldnt have to grow up an orphan.
Hedwig wouldnt have died.
Arthur Weasly wouldn' t have been mauled by Nagini.
The real master Moody wouldn‘ t have been murdered.
Colin Creevy would get to take another photograph.
And snape woudn' t have been brutalised by Nagini!
Just maybe, if Harry hadn' t been such a dick to one of
the most tragic characters in modern fiction, all those
dead at the hands of the death eaters weild still be here.
Maybe if Harry inherited a little mere from Lilly than
just her eyes... maybe all those people wouldnt be
Harry Potter is a Dick!

Maybe if Harry weren't so much like his father, the story wouldn't be interesting at all.

"Maybe if Harry wasn't a well-crafted character with flaws, the books would've been less interesting" is all I got out of this.

This is a very well thought out argument, I want to disagree, but I simply can't.

Maybe if Snape learned not to hold an insane grudge against a bunch of children, we wouldn't have had any of these problems either

The conflict between Harry and Snape is one of the dominant parts of the series. I don't get it why people always tend to say: "I wish they were friends from the start". No. You've read 7 books and/or watched 8 movies for the mystery of it. If Harry knew from the start why Snape hated his father, than what's the point in waiting until the very end? Everything would be way simpler and therefore dull. People came to love the characters because of the way they are presented and because of their evolution.

He might be a dick but you most likely spent a great deal of your childhood following and being interested in the adventures of that dick and saw him as a hero. Every character in every book is exactly as he/she is supposed to be. Nothing more, nothing less.

While I agree, from our current perspective, he seems like a dick. We have to remember a few things here.

1) Harry was about 12 when he went to Hogwarts for the first time. Twelve-year-old children aren't really all that wise or reasonable in general.
2) We are seeing all of this with the benefit of hindsight, and without the burden of emotional involvement (which Harry is experiencing) that might cloud our judgement.
3) Harry grew up in an abusive household where all the people he knew seemed to hate him for no particular reason (that he knew of). Is it really such a stretch that when he encounters ANOTHER person who seems to dislike him without a known reason that Harry might immediately develop a deep loathing and mistrust of that person?

Maybe if Harry woldn't have grown up in a hostile environment where almost all the adults were mean to him, he wouldn't have had the predisposition to feel threatened by a mean-for-apparently-no-reason adult.
Also, Snape could have acted his age, and undertand that Harry IS NOT his father.

Harry is kind of an ass. But that's what makes it interesting.

The one part that bothered me the most was the occlumency. note: A LOT of fanfic writers claim Snape was just raping his mind. Snape told him to practice clearing his mind every night to keep Voldemort out and to help in his own proficiency. Harry never once tries because (as Snape suggested) he wants to keep getting the visions. His lack of diligence leads the the incident at the Ministry where Sirius dies.

TL;DR Snape was right when he said that people like Harry who "proudly wear their hearts on their sleeves" were "easy prey for the Dark Lord".

Well maybe if shape hadn't been such a dick to Harry in his first potions lesson when he was taking notes like a good student Harry would have trusted him

an 11yr. old kid play a diplomat when the teacher just blatantly just embarrassed him in front of the whole class on the first day. Why would he want to know the guy better when everyone around him (other griffindors) is saying that snape is not a "nice" guy. For a kid that just explained Snape's actions and accepted that. But then we are talking about an abused kid here btw they act differently to certain things than what we would normally expect.

What's up with the hating on Harry trend right now? If anyone actually read the books you would know that Snape was a dick to Harry first; Snape had preconceptions about how Harry would be based on his father and treated him poorly because of it, refusing to see that Harry, in many ways, was not like his father. Harry developed a hatred for Snape based upon his poor treatment from him and on the old prejudice his father had, but if Snape had never been a dick to Harry then Harry would almost certainly not have developed such a poor relationship with him.

tl;dr It's a two way street, Snape was a dick to Harry too and that was just as influential as Harry's fathers prejudice.

Evil is 90% how we perceive others to be, and only 10% of what they actually do.
