    I've ran into a few pictures and short ideas about Harry with a different appearance. In particular, inheriting hair colour from his mother. Created the thread when saw the screenshot of this tumblr post for the 3+ time.

    There's potential for a discussion thread, but I figure had Harry inherited his mother's hair, there would have been a few interesting changes. (Maybe even with Snape's attitude). At the same time, you could argue that it would stay the same, as the difference is very artificial. It would depend on the author anyway.

    I'm not sure if I want to have a full discussion about the potential of changes, but maybe there's already at least a decent fanfic that has this premise as part of it? It doesn't need to be the central idea.

    There's this, at least. Harry's a ginger, as requested. I can't speak to its quality, but it's been recommended before on r/hpff.

    First impressions on quality:
    Uses the cropped image I linked as a story picture, which is good, I guess.
    Starts with the very conversation in said picture.
    Draco quickly goes on to mention "Sacred 28" which is never a good sign. Especially thrown into conversation this way.
    Soon after, Weasleys Mistake harry for one of their own in confusion to get to the platform, too.
    And then the sorting hat...

    It's a bit too goofy and haphazard.

    Quality is sad, overall.

    Not exactly what I was hoping for, but left the question open-ended on purpose, so thanks for the link anyway ;).

    More?

    I actually like this idea and am tempted to run with it myself at some point.

    I mean, look what happened here. Just asking about stories where Harry has red hair brought up these stories as recs.

    Easier for people to remember your story. Though granted if they needed a different hair color for that you probably weren’t engaging enough.

    Would also be easy enough to give him white hair or something and blame it on Voldemort’s failed spell.

    I think that author Lucille? Has one, I cant remember for sure but she has a lot of short stories. I'll check


    Edit: Nope, just checked her fics (Lucillia) and from a quick glance I don't think she has any where he's a redhead. Maybe the one where Molly was a surrogate though. Feel free to check yourselves, Im going to read through some of her fics I forgot about myself. https://m.fanfiction.net/u/579283/

    I don’t want another soulless character in Harry Potter. We have Ron for that.

    This one is also based on that fanart, cant vouch for the quality but it seems at least a 2 or 3 out of 5.
