1Chapter 3

AN: This is the first chapter of this story that is all mine, so tell me what you think. If anyone is interested in being a beta reader for this story send me a message or leave a note in your review. Sorry the chapter is a couple of days later than I planned, but I was having trouble deciding what to have Snape say. I ended up doing something other than what I planned, Dumbledore is going to be in the next chapter I hope.

Severus Snape was not a nice man. He didn't particularly like children and he couldn't handle stupidity or laziness. As the Slytherin head of house was walking back to his rooms after the sorting, he still couldn't believe what had happened. Harry Potter was in his house.

'I thought he was going to be just like his father, arrogant and acting without ever thinking of the consequences of his actions,' Severus thought, 'but James would have killed himself before he joined Slytherin house. I'm going to have to think about what to do with this unexpected Potter.'

He finally that he would have to treat him just like any other new Slytherin, he wouldn't treat one of his snakes like he had been planning to treat Potter. 'We'll see what happens.'

He looked around at all his new snakes that were gathered around him in the Slytherin common room. 'Ten new ones this year, I hope none of these have problems that I'l have to deal with right now.'

"Over here everyone, I want you to take a good look around at your fellows. The ones around you are going to be the only ones that are going to stand up for you or even believe you when something goes wrong. The rest of the houses Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, and even Ravenclaw will always going to discriminate against you. The teachers will almost always listen to the others over you. If one of your fellow snakes have a problem it is going to be your problem as long as you are out there. You can have as many arguments and fights as you want when your in the common room or dorms, but out there you are one group." Severus started.

"Does everyone understand so far? Do you have any questions so far?" He asked.

"Very well," he continued when no one had anything to say yet. "These are you class schedules and directions to get to your classes, so I don't want to hear that you were late to any of them." He looked around and was only slightly surpised to see Draco and Blaise with Potter. Draco's father had most likely told him to try and get along with Harry Potter. "Don't cause trouble for your teachers because then I'll have to deal with it. Sometime this week I'm going to be calling all of you to my office to talk to each of you individually. My office in the same hall as my classroom, If you have to come talk to me, you'll be most likely to find me there outside of classes. Dismissed, go get your bags and come back here so the prefects can take you back to breakfast." He watched the first years scramble back to there rooms before he left to go to the hall himself.

When he first woke up he couldn't remember where he was. Harry looked around the room trying to figure out where he was until he spotted his trunk at the foot of his bed.

'I'm really here finally. I had best look around and see what I have in here I was too tired last night.' The room was one of the nicest he had ever seen, though that wasn't suprising considering Aunt Petunia was the highlight of the decorating knew. He had his own bed, a wardrobe, small desk, and even a couple nice armchairs with a table between them. The wood on all the furniture was a warm cherry wood with emerald and forest green material where needed for chairs and drapes. As he got up he noticed that there was also a door opposite the one he came in and discovered that it led to his own little toilet room. He had a shower, toilet, and pedastal sink with a mirror above it.

'I can't believe this is all mine, I actually have a room I can call my own. I wonder if all the other rooms look like this.'

He decided to get ready for the day and go down to the common room and see of any of the others were awake yet, and wait for Profeesor Snape to come and talk to them.

As he exited the portrait of Salazar Slytherin, he heard, Good morning little one, did you sleep well? The first night is always the strangest, but you will become accustomed to being the dungeons without any windows.

I don't even remember falling asleep, sir. As for the lack windows I'm used to it, sir, I used to sleep in the cupboard under the stairs. Harry explained. This castle is amazing so far, I can't wait to see the rest of it today

Harry never noticed all of the other Slytherins staring at him as he talked to Salazar, though Slytherin did notice them watching. They seemed to be in shock, that not only was someone talking to the portrait that never spoke to anyone, but it was Potter and he was speaking in parseltongue!

Come and talk to me after classes my heir, everyone is watching you now Harry looked around suprised, he hadn't noticed everyone just staring at him, but continued talking.

Okay, why do you keep calling me your heir though sir? I don't think that I'm related to you.

I'll tell you tonight when you come and talk to me

Harry nodded, and walked over to the chair closest to the door and looked around the common room. The room had decorations similar to his room. Emerald and forest greens, warm cherry wood, silver brakets, with touches of browns and black. There were a couple couches, armchairs, study tables with chairs around them, and of course the large fireplace that still had roaring fire going in it. 'It must be cold in here under the lake without that fire going.'

Just as he was about to start looking at all the portraits all the rest of the Slytherin first came out of their own rooms. Blaise was the first to come over to Harry. "Good morning Harry, are you ready for today?" Blaise asked when she reached him.

"Yes, I was just waiting for everybody else to come out. Professor Snape should be here soon to talk to us." Almost as soon as Harry finished Professor Snape came through the wall entrance and called them over.

As he started to talk to them about their house and the other houses Harry began to listen intently so that he would have the knowledge he needed to know. He didn't want to make a stupid mistake and be fooled, he needed information so he could make less impulsive decisions. When Professor Snape said that he wanted to talk to them individually he didn't know what to think. He decided not to make a decision about it until the Professor had talked to him. When Professor Snape finished Harry ran to get his bag, he couldn't wait to begin his classes.
