Thirteen Kinds of Hope by Lemony Snicket

There are, also, thirteen types of hope, also described here chronologically:

1) “I hope that my alarm clock went off accidentally in the middle of the night and so it’s not dawn.”

2) “I hope that the quiet camaraderie of breakfast extends throughout the planet.”

3) “I hope that this newspaper is kidding.”

4) “I hope that I look busy to anyone invested in my busyness.”

5) “I hope that I manage not to say what is on my mind whilst speaking with this professional associate.”

6) “I hope that clock is playing a trick on me.”

7) “I hope that the talk at cocktail time is imaginative and hilarious.”

8) “I hope cauliflower is not involved overmuch.”

9) “I hope someone else is doing the dishes.”

10) “I hope that this book improves.”

11) “I hope that noise was nothing.”

12) “I hope that the most obvious and embarrassing interpretation of this dream is off-base in some way I have not yet determined.”

13) There is a thirteenth type of hope, difficult to describe, which occurs outside the confines of the clock – the only one which matters.

I think uncle Monty is the perfect example of a Slytherin who is also a decent and caring human being. Here's why (this is more specific to the show because I haven't read the book in a while):

-Ambitious: He is a world renowned herpetologist/recognised scientist. He worked hard for that, and he wanted that title.

-Cunning: That ingenious door that looks like you have to do a million things to open, but really you just need to turn the doorknob. He named the incredibly deadly viper because he wanted to play a trick on the other scientists who were rude to him.

-Protective: Though he may have been a little too self involved to understand that Olaf was after the children and not his studies, he did recognise that he was a threat, and tried to protect the Baudelaires (and his reptiles) from him.


He did of course have some negative traits as well, but everyone does. Overall though I think he should be recognised as a positive Slytherin character.
