Hogwarts' Houses: Falling in Love

Gryffindor: With everything they have. Gryffindor fall all at once, soaking in the other. Gryffindor love fast and furiously, adventures at their feet. Gryffindor beam and are sunlight when in love. Naive they are, and they know it. However they couldn’t care less, flowers in their hair and lips locked.

Slytherin: Consuming. Slytherin become obsessive, the other being their soul purpose for breathing. Slytherin fall hard and break harder. Suppressing their feelings, only letting the other’s name slip their lips every few days. But then it’s every few hours and every few minutes. Soon they can’t ignore it and are enraged angry confused unable to breathe. But when they love they are rough and they’ll consume you. Slytherin will keep you begging for more. For a taste. Ecstasy.

Ravenclaw: With caution. Ravenclaws aren’t naive. They know the brutality of love all too well. They will gently let their guard down, little by little. But once they do it’s bliss. Nothing else matters with them. They daydream and laugh with a grin on their cheeks. When they love they love like apricity.

Hufflepuff: Carelessly. Hufflepuffs become homely, comfortable and lazy. They nap and laugh and genuinely enjoy living with their other. They don’t care for futures, or commitment. They just want someone to exist with.
