hi emily, i have recently been re-sorted into slytherin (former ravenclaw) and i feel a little out of my depth in this house... do you have any advice for slytherin noobs on how to adapt to their new house? how do you make friends here? can i bring my dogs? is pink allowed in the dorms? do they have enough blankets?

Welcome to the dungeon! Have a mouldy chair.

My advice for a Ravenclaw transitioning to Slytherin, a Slytherclaw if you will, would be to keep hold of your Ravenclaw instincts to be discerning and resourceful. However you’re going to want to let go of a lottttttt of that logic, for reasons of AESTHETICS.

Dungeons, snakes, creepy dead things floating in jars, sneaky Snapey types skulking around in the dark - all part of the Slytherin brand. If you’re into it, great. If not - you’re going to want to keep schtum about a lot of the Sltyerhin weirdness and just accept that the aesthetic comes first.

  • To make friends, I would suggest bragging about some crazed ancient dark wizard to whom you are distantly related, or just invent some clever rhyme about how shit Harry Potter is.
  • You cannot bring dogs, dogs are too happy. ‘Happy’ is not the Slytherin aesthetic. Reptiles yes, or a cat, but only if said cat is particularly contemptuous.
  • NO. PINK.**
  • Yes they have blankets.

Hope this helps! To be explored further in the upcoming comics, dw xx

**Edit: A reminder that this is just an advice blog, and therefore subjective, but I just get the feeling pink and Slytherin don’t mix well (see - Dolores Umbridge)
