Reddit user Equivalent Inflation argues: “When Harry tried on the hat, it mentioned all of the houses as options and Slytherin in particular. But Harry got into Gryffindor because he asked.

“He didn't specifically say Gryffindor, but he ruled out Slytherin, and didn't want either other house.

“Same for Hermione: we find out the hat actually wanted to put her into Ravenclaw, but she asked for Gryffindor.”

The theorist also highlights Ron and Neville as both having been worried about getting into the Hogwarts house and not living up to their families’ expectations.

The theorist continued: “Harry never told anyone except Dumbledore about his choice until he was an adult, and Hermione only told a small group of friends [in] her fifth year.

“It's pretty likely that they, and others, made the choice then never told anyone about it.

“When all of the Gryffindors first come in, none of them actually see[m] to have the traits of the house.”

The fan pointed out how Neville was a coward and Ginny shy as examples of how Gryffindors don’t start off brave.
