A/N: To those who are asking why Harry has a command seal yet no servant, his situation is just like Shirou, when Shirou summoned saber he already had a command seal, his command seal was a mark that he was the one chosen to be a master, Harry had his command seal for ten years now since Lily almost finished the ritual, the only reason the ritual worked enough to give the command seal was because there was so much magic that it forced the ritual to completion.

The immense size of the Hall had shaken Harry from his sorting reverie, allowing him a chance to examine the splendid place. It was lit by thousands and thousands of candles that were floating in midair over four long tables, where the rest of the students were sitting. These tables were laid with glittering golden plates and goblets. At the top of the hall was another long table where the teachers were sitting. Professor McGonagall led the first years up here, so that they came to a halt in a line facing the other students, with the teachers behind them.
He fixed his stare straight ahead of him as he watched Professor McGonagall silently place a four-legged stool in front of the first years. On top of the stool she put a pointed wizard's hat. This hat was patched and frayed and extremely dirty.
For a few seconds, there was complete silence. Then the hat twitched. A rip near the brim opened wide like a mouth—and the hat began to sing.
Oh you may not think I'm pretty,
But don't judge on what you see,
I'll eat myself if you can find
A smarter hat than me.
You can keep your bowlers black,
Your top hats sleek and tall,
For I'm the Hogwarts Sorting Hat
And I can cap them all.
There's nothing hidden in your head
The Sorting Hat can't see,
So try me on and I will tell you
Where you ought to be.
You might belong in Gryffindor,
Where dwell the brave at heart,
Their daring, nerve, and chivalry
Set Gryffindors apart;
You might belong in Hufflepuff,
Where they are just and loyal,
Those patient Hufflepuffs are true
And unafraid of toil;
Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw,
if you've a ready mind,
Where those of wit and learning,
Will always find their kind;
Or perhaps in Slytherin
You'll make your real friends,
Those cunning folks use any means
To achieve their ends.
So put me on! Don't be afraid!
And don't get in a flap!
You're in safe hands (though I have none)
For I'm a Thinking Cap!
"When I call your name, you will come up, sit on the stool, and wait for your name to be called. First up, Abbott, Hannah."- Professor McGonagall called as a girl nervously walked to the stool and put the hat
"HUFFLEPUFF" -The sorting hat shouted as the girl sighed in relief and went to the table with the yellow banner
Harry watched the others be sorted with rapt attention,He was both excited and nervous to be sorted so when Professor McGonagall called
"Potter, Harry" -He absently noted that the hall was quiet and many students were craning their heads to see him
"Difficult, very difficult. Plenty of courage, I see. Not a bad mind either. There's talent, oh my goodness, yes- and a nice thirst to prove yourself, now that's interesting… So where shall I put you?"
"You're asking me?" thought a dumbfounded Harry.
"The choice is ultimately yours," replied the hat, sounding amused.
Harry gulped, "can I ask you a question?"
"You just did," observed the hat wryly with a chuckle before adding. "Go ahead young Potter."
"Where were my parents sorted?"-Harry asked the hat
"They were both in Gryffindor"-The sorting hat replied then continued "Would you like to be sorted to your parent's house?"
"Yes, I want to know more about them"- Harry replied
"You could be great, you know, it's all here in your head and Slytherin will help you on the way to greatness, no doubt about that" - the hat told Harry
"Yes, but I don't want to be great, I just want to know my parents and if that means I won't be famous, then it's alright, all I've ever wanted was to be normal"-Harry answered trying to persuade the hat
"Then , best not to keep you from your house, GRYFFINDOR!"- The hat shouted and was then removed by the Professor
Harry slumped as the Sorting Hat shouted the last word, and the table under the red and gold banner erupted in applause. He swept the hat off his head and placed it gently on the stool. He gave it a gentle pat on the brim as if to say thanks and ran over to the table with the red banner.
He shook the hands of a person who introduced himself as a prefect and after that he sat down with the redheaded boy he saw at the train station
"Hello, I'm Harry Potter" -Harry introduced himself and held out his hand
"I'm Ron, Ron Weasley"-The boy, no Ron introduced himself and shook his hand though Harry noticed that his eyes was glued to his forehead
Not wanting to know if the students were still staring at him. Harry turned his attention instead to the High Table, finally getting a good view of the teachers. His eyes immediately found the giant gameskeeper who was sitting at the end. Hagrid's beetle black eyes were looking at Harry with pride.
He followed down the table, not knowing the names of the professors but he made sure to remember the faces so that he could ask someone who they were and what they taught. He did recognize Professor Quirrell whom he had met at the Leaky Cauldron.
It was the teacher next to Quirrell that brought Harry immediate trepidation. The man had greasy black hair, a hooked nose, sallow skin and obsidian eyes that once they fell on Harry. He felt an immediate searing pain from his scar that caused him to yelp.
"Harry? What is it?" asked a concerned housemate.
Harry, who had been instinctively rubbing his forehead to soothe the sudden pain in his scar
"Is there something wrong?"- Ron asked Harry who was still trying to rub his scar
The Sorting ceremony ended when a dark skinned boy Blaise Zabini was sorted into Slytherin. The stool and the hat were removed and Headmaster Dumbledore approached the pulpit. The Headmaster was beaming and there was a twinkle in his eye as he addressed the students, but Harry was only half listening, still trying to figure out what had brought the sudden pain to his scar. Though the headmaster's words made Harry think if the man was alright in the head
"Nitwit! Blubber! Oddment! Tweak! Thank you!"
His thoughts on Dumbledore vanished as soon as his eyes fell to the table where the plates in front of him were now all piled with food. His mouth fell open and he was sure he was drooling, his stomach rumbled in approval as his eyes roamed the table to see roast beef, roast chicken, pork chops, and lamb chops, sausages, boiled potatoes, roast potatoes, fries, peas, carrots, and Harry could continue but his stomach's protest of wanting to taste food instead of see it won out.
He immediately helped himself piling his plate with a little bit of everything.
Harry didn't know much about the wizarding world but if he was sure of one thing, it was that things were looking up for Harry Potter.
Author's note:I was already decided as to whom Harry will summon but now, I'm looking for suggestions, please choose from these characters and I'll decide
Please vote since it will help me greatly
1) Saber Arturia- since he's the king of Britain and her responsibility and Harry's are almost the same, both of them are noble, brave and determined
the reason why I like Saber to be Harry's summon is because of the phrase : The King protected her country but the country did not protect its King, this sentence made me think about their similarity, both of them want to protect their people a\and yet both of them were ostracized by the very people they want to protect
2) Caster Merlin- a Review suggested this and it made my mind think about the possibilities, I mean Harry summoning Merlin is like PURE awesomeness!
3)Diarmuid Ua Duibhne/Diarmuid of the Love Spot-(Lancer of the 4th holy grail war) He's very loyal to his master, and I thnk he'll be a very good influence to harry, since he'll never turn his back to him, which unfortunately always happens to Harry
4) Herakles and or Lancelot- I'm not decided in their class since they can fit in most servant class but Imagine Harry summoning Hearakles in Berserker, he has enough magic to control him like Ilya but he's not sadistic and having a protector like that is cool
Lancelot- since he's also from Britain and He'll be a great protector of Harry
