Harry is a Horcrux!

ok I just posted this on another thread but here goes.

Harry is the best possible Horcrux. Everyone expects that Voldemort attempted to kill Harry but I don't think so. Snape returns to Voldemort with the Prophecy. He knows that the prophecy says that he will mark the child as his equal. So he hunts down Harry and kills his mother in his presence and then instead of an Avada Kedavra he uses magic to place the last piece of his soul in Harry. Now he can be certain that this one Horcrux will never be destroyed. Matter of fact he is quite certain that this one will be guarded by Dumbledore himself so no harm will come to him. At the end of HBP Snape says that they cannot kill Harry because the Dark Lord has reserved that for himself. So he can pull his soul from Harry.

Good idea, Sirius-Lee, but I believe the difficulty with that would be;

1, How would Harry ever find out, until it's too late?.
2, Dumbledore would have had to have known that Harry was a Horcrux.
3, How did Voldemort lose his body and powers, if not a rebounded a.k. curse?.
4, Harry would, in essence, be sharing his body, and Voldemort/Fragment would
find it impossible to be in a body filled with an " ancient magic , which he has
always despised " ( o.o.t.p. pg;736 ).

But I admit, your idea was very good!. And I could be wrong too.;)

Another thing, If LV had intentionaly made HaH, in the battle at the MoM while possessing Harry he would not have egged DD on to kill him and Harry together. Also, even if he had accidentaly made HaH, then while possesing him he certainly would have had to have felt part of him already there in Harry's body, and wouldnt have tepted DD to kill them both, although he would have been certain of survival, he wouldn't have wanted one a horcrux destroyed.

This is not my understanding of the events.

Of the prophecy Dumbledore says

Dumbledore. OotP said:
He heard only the beginning, the part foretelling the birth of a boy in July to parents who had thrice defied Voldemort. Consequently, he could not warn his master that to attack you would be to risk transferring power to you, and marking you as his equal. So Voldemort never knew that there might be danger in attacking you, that it might be wise to wait, to learn more. He did not know that you would have power the Dark Lord knows not

So Voldemort did not know that he would mark Harry as his equal.

Of the idea that Voldemort did not try to kill Harry but instead deliberately tried to create a Horcrux.

Voldemort says

Voldemort. GoF said:
"You all know that on the night I lost my powers and my body, I tried to kill him. His mother died in the attempt to save him - and unwittingly provided him with a protection I admit I had not foreseen. ... I could not touch the boy."
Voldemort raised one of his long white fingers and put it very close to Harry's cheek.
"His mother left upon him the traces other sacrifice. . . . This is old magic, I should have remembered it, I was foolish to overlook it... but no matter. I can touch him now."
Harry felt the cold tip of the long white finger touch him, and thought his head would burst with the pain. Voldemort laughed softly in his ear, then took the finger away and continued addressing the Death Eaters.
"I miscalculated, my friends, I admit it. My curse was deflected by the woman's foolish sacrifice, and it rebounded upon myself. Aaah . . . pain beyond pain, my friends; nothing could have prepared me for it. I was ripped from my body, I was less than spirit, less than the meanest ghost. . . but still, I was alive. What I was, even I do not know... I, who have gone further than anybody along the path that leads to immortality. You know my goal - to conquer death. And now, I was tested, and it appeared that one or more of my experiments had worked ... for I had not been killed, though the curse should have done it.

To me this shows that it was Voldemort's intention to kill Harry.

I know that the main thrust of the Harry is a Horcrux argument is that he became a Horcrux by accident and there are a whole different set of arguments around that but I do not see that it was an intentional act. I think that Voldemort wanted Harry out of his way when he was at his weakest.
