Slytherin!

thegirlofsecondchances:

I am starting a semester abroad in a few weeks - not only a university, but a whole country in which I know not a single person. It felt so nice to buy a Slytherin button to put on my bag or pencil case or clothes, to give others - fellow Slytherins or fellow Potter fans - a reason to talk to me, a common ground to start from. I feel saver knowing I will have that button. 

And that is why books are important and why books matter. Why Potter is important. And magical.

  • Question: Hi :) I was just wondering, how come you see Stiles as a Slytherin? Im curious just because I always imagined him more as a Ravenclaw - Anonymous

    Well thank you for asking!

    I completely understand people seeing him as a Ravenclaw, but there are a few things that make me think of him as Slytherin instead. Just because you’re smart, doesn’t necessarily make you a Ravenclaw.

    One of my main deciding factors is how he uses his intelligence. He’s cunning about it. He uses it to undermine and manipulate people and the law to get what he wants. That’s not a bad thing, necessarily, but Stiles just knows what to do to get things done in the fastest way possible, even if it might break a rule or two. Breaking the law has never really been an issue for him, especially if he doesn’t agree with it or it hinders his ability to accomplish something. 

    In quoting this meta, "To him, the ends really justify the means. He got his father drunk to get access to the police files, used Derek’s body to make Danny trace that text, stole a police van, showed no qualms with killing Jackson, keyed someone’s car, etc, along with other things. His main goal was to help, yes, but most of the times Stiles’ acts to help people are not selfless."

    They later go on to say that every action Stiles makes is based on a selfish desire to not lose anyone else, even if it’s not the best decision.

    Here are some Slytherin traits:

    The house is traditionally home to students who exhibit such traits as cunningresourcefulness, and ambition.

    We already know that he’s hella resourceful and cunning:

    And he says things like this:

    He’s usually the one the pack goes to for a plan.

    Overall, to me he isn’t a “Thirst for knowlege/Openminded” type. He’s someone who likes to see what he can get away with, enjoys knowing his cunning is recognized (ex: Pranking Coach with the present)  and trusts only those who he thinks have proven themselves worthy of his trust. 

    TL;DR

    This is a great meta that puts it a lot more simply than I did.

The fact that two of my dorm RAs got gryffindor lanyards are using that as an excuse to taunt me. The first instance came when an RA called me a loser, playfully, but then pointed to her lanyard and smirked at me as if implying ‘You’re not Gryffindor so that makes you a loser.’. And then later as I was walking up the hill to the school building, a senior RA was holding a door open for me while the other one stood beside her. They were chatting and then as I got to them I heard ’ Jeez Eren why are you going so slow!’ And the other replied ’ She’s going slow because she’s a Hufflepuff!’ And they both laughed. I looked back at them with shock- not anger- but shock. The saddest part about this is that these two were people older than I whom I am supposed to look up to as role models. They taunt me playfully, I know they don’t mean to hurt my feelings, but if they show house pride by putting others down, I’m not fucking jealous of them. I feel sorry for them. I feel sorry for them because they are fucking wrong and they have no idea. It’s like they are those people who are so stupid they don’t know they’re stupid. How am I supposed to look up to them? They’ve hurt my feelings more than they could understand. And the problem is if I confront one of them about it they’ll act like the victim and be all like ’ It’s just a fictional team in a fictional book why are you taking this so seriously.’ No. Fuck no. You don’t fucking get it do you? People like me are placed into these houses based on who we are and what we believe in and so on. If you’re criticizing my house, you’re hurting who I am and what I stand for. What makes me a Hufflepuff isn’t necessarily a choice, but in a way it is because I’m proud of who I am. Take that fucking lanyard off because what you have displayed does not show bravery you are a disgrace to the name of Gryffindor. And no I’m not a loser. I’m not a loser because I understand this better than you, and for that, my friend, you have lost and you’re still going to be lost. You can wear that Gryffindor lanyard when you start behaving like one…

Also, one of the RAs told me that she isn’t even in Gryffindor she just got it as a gift. Like what the fuck? Do you think the colours just automatically grant you membership? And you used this to insult me and my house? How dare she! I think it’s funny how she believes Gryffindors are braver than any of the houses, and yet, I still stand here. With my Hufflepuff lanyard. Taking in these insults and to feel like retaliating. But I still keep my calm composure. I’m braver than them. Why? Because I’m brave enough to show my pride even when they criticize my house. I’m braver than those two, who are in fact older and supposedly more ‘mature’ than I am, they call themselves Gryffindors. Braver than the rest- my arse!
