house a day

Shit Slytherins Say on Valentine's Day : #2
  • Hufflepuff: "Hi, did it hurt?"
  • Slytherin: "What?"
  • Hufflepuff: "When you fell from heaven."
  • Slytherin: "Did you just call me Satan?"
The Houses as Beautiful Things

Hufflepuff: The sunrise. People smiling. Light drifting through an open window. A half-finished painting. Tulips. Flowers woven into a braid. Hugs. Dandelion seeds drifting in the wind. The world after it rains. Hope.

Gryffindor: Laughter. Friends embracing after a long time apart. A sunset just before it fades to blue. Autumn leaves. Color—each and every shade. Candid photographs. The glow of light through a foggy window. Joy.

Ravenclaw: Poetry. Bells chiming. The soft breeze of early spring. Soft piano music. Snow angels. Eyes lighting up in excitement. Seashells and chips of sea glass. A locket with pictures inside. Art.

Slytherin: Morning dew. Roses climbing up a trellis. Constellations. A dancer lost in the music. Stained glass. Tears of joy. Handwritten letters with smeared ink. Embers glowing in wake of fire. Old forests. Love.

Shit Slytherins Say on Valentine's Day: #5
  • Gryffindor: "I think I could make you very happy."
  • Slytherin: "Why? Are you leaving?"
Each house when: it's their last day at Hogwarts
  • Gryffindor: Does That Stupid But Awesome Thing they held back doing for 7 years like trying to ride the Giant Squid (and they succeed)
  • Hufflepuff: Throw the party of the year in the kitchens with all the other Puffs (Sprout even brings some homemade Butterbeer but shh *wink wonk*)
  • Ravenclaw: Brings a bouquet to Mrs Pince with an apology note for all the times they’ve been late to turn a book in. (They probably still have one in their trunk though).
  • Slytherin: Goes say a super awkward but genuinely respectful goodbye at McGonagall that makes her question her dislike for the house (Snape makes sure she remembers in september though)
  • Hufflepuff: Okay, when do you want me to wake you up?
  • Ravenclaw: Never.
  • Hufflepuff: We have the final for Charms tomorrow.
  • Ravenclaw: I know.
  • Hufflepuff: So, when should I wake you?
  • Ravenclaw: I asked Flitwick if I'd pass if I just didn't show up for the test, and he said I'd get an "A" in the class.
  • Hufflepuff: So, you're giving up your "O" in the class just so you don't have to get up tomorrow?
  • Ravenclaw: Yup.

  • Ravenclaw: "How much do you love me?"
  • Slytherin: "Well, look at the stars and count them. That's how much I love you."

  • Slytherin: "Exactly."
Shit Slytherins Say on Valentine's Day: #3
  • Gryffindor: "Where are you from? Heaven?"
  • Slytherin: "That's right, I'm a ghost. I died fifteen years ago, kinda like that pick up line."
