• Godric: So, I think everyone should explain briefly why they chose their house colour. Helga, do you want to go first?
  • Helga: Well, I wanted my students to look forward to learning in a happy and safe environment and yellow seemed to be the perfect colour for that. It's bright and cheerful.
  • Rowena: For me blue symbolises a clear and well structured mind. There are no clouds blocking it and hindering the student from using their full potential, just a clear blue sky.
  • Godric: Okay, that's interesting. I chose red because it's the colour of war. Life is full of battles, small and big ones and I want my students to feel like they are ready for whatever might come at any time. What about you, Salazar?
  • Salazar: ...
  • Salazar: I look hot as fuck in green.
Slytherin Traits

Alright why do people always forget that the Hat said “or perhaps in Slytherin, you’ll meet your real friends?” Because I don’t

Also: The Sorting Hat, while created by all four founders, originally belonged to Godric Gryffindor, Salazar Slytherin’s best friend

Once you’ve got a Slytherin for a true friend, you have someone who’d compromise morality to help you

Helga: *smiles fondly, setting her things aside*

Helga: *tuts* They are good people.

1053. Harry Potter is descended from Gryffindor through his mother. Gryffindor had a squib daughter with a muggle woman. Because they weren't married he made sure that the woman and their daughter were taken care of for the rest of their lives. He even bought them places in Muggle society. The squib daughter grew up unaware that her father was a wizard. She eventually married a muggle merchant and had many children.
