    For years, we all believed that Harry Potter was the Chosen One, the one destined to save the wizarding world from Lord Voldemort, He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named. BUT, have we been duped? Is it possible that our lightning-bolted boy wonder isn't as special as we thought? What is there was ANOTHER Chosen One? What if it all boiled down to a coin flip? Then Harry Potter would just be an average kid. Maybe there's a universe out there where Harry should be THANKING Lord Voldemort...but I'll leave that to you to judge!

    I like the theory, and it makes sense, but I do think you're wrong about the whole two chosen ones thing. Because Old Voldy chose Harry and not Neville, Harry is the official "Chosen One" for his little branch of time, with Neville being a close second in terms of raw dark-lord-killing possibility.

    Wait, I just noticed....If Professor Trelawney did not create the prophecy, this story would not have ever existed. So technically Professor Trelawney is the Chosen One.

    Harry never killed Voldemort... NEVEL did!! Because nevel killed the snake so half of Voldemort’s soul died and then he became weak so Harry would have a better chance to kill Voldemort.

    Mat pat, did you even read the books? It literally says that if Voldemort had tried to kill Neville then he would have been the chosen one instead of Harry Potter.

    I'm sorry, this is stupid. One, this isn't even a theory, it's FACT. You don't need to make a "theory" about it. It literally explains in the books, that either harry or neville could be the chosen ONE. Two, there is still only ONE chosen one. Harry. HE ALONE is the chosen one, because VOLDEMORT CHOSE HIM. If Voldemort had chosen neville, than ONLY NEVILLE would be the chosen one, and Harry would be just some kid. Three, you're obviously aiming for people who haven't even read the books, because, honestly, explaining mad-eye/barty crouch jr.? Everyone who has at least flipped through the fourth book knows that. And how does that relate to this stupid "theory" at all? Also, another thing, NEVILLE DOESN'T GIVE HARRY THE GILLYWEED!!!! DOBBY DOES!!! THAT'S ONLY IN THE FILM, AND ANYTHING THAT'S ONLY IN THE FILM AND NOT THE BOOKS ISN'T TRUE. Come on already. Tell us something we DON'T know.

    OK so 12:15 it WASNT neville that provided the gillyweed, that was just a cop-out in the movies. It was Dobby that did all the helping in the books, not Neville. Your point still stands, but as an avid HP fan in my childhood these things are important to me. Neville is awesome, and yeah it coulda easily been Neville (this was outlined really well in the books though, I sorta feel like you didnt read those so closely, and stayed more to the movies... this is "Film Theory" tho and not "Book Theory")

    Come on. WE ALL know that Voldemort was the real chosen one. He was having personal issues about his nose. Then guidance counselor, Harry Potter, used love against him. In which is was too much, and Voldemort didn't feel so good.

    Voldemort had only heard part of the prophecy from his eavesdropper(Snape).The Books clearly say that the Prophecy could have been for Neville as well. But Voldemort Chose Harry as his equal as they shared the same blood status(Half-Blood), even though later on he worships the Pure-Bloods as worthy of being magical. So, for people who have read the book, would know that Neville could have been the chosen one.

    Hun. It's Neville it was literally mentioned. Yet he had to be marked. He was not marked though, so he is not "the chosen one" Harry was chosen by voldemort making him the one he chose, the chosen one. Come on

    Nur the Dark Lord will mark him as his ecual... There is 1 difference: we know, Harry Potter is a Half-blood. Neville longbottom is a Pureblood. The reason Voldemort thought Harry was the chosen one is that Tom Riddle is a half blood too. Dumbledore told Harry that Neville could be the chosen one too but the reason is the Status of Voldemorts Blood.

    This is actually a decent theory, but,I don't agree with you. And DUDE, give Harry some slack, I mean, he was orphaned at age 1! 1! Plus, he was raised by people who HATE him, for 10 years! He slept in a cupboard, was constantly bullied, and punished for things he did mean to do. Oh, and I almost forgot, HE'S GOT THE MOST EVIL DARK LORD OF ALL TIME TRYING TO KILL HIM! So please, be nicer!
