“You could be great, you know, it’s all here in your head, and Slytherin will help you on the way to greatness, no doubt about that.”  — The Sorting Hat 

Slytherin is one of the four Houses of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, founded by Salazar Slytherin. Members of this house are known mainly for their resourcefulness, self-preservation, fraternity, ambition, and shrewdness. The Slytherin mascot is the serpent, and the corresponding element is water. The house colors are green and silver, which also matches the theme of the mascot and element. The house ghost is the Bloody Baron, a fellow Slytherin alumni. A few other (in)famous alumnus from this house are: Merlin, Horace Slughorn, Tom Riddle, Regulus Black, and Draco Malfoy. 

A big thanks to my friend @jeonghhan for helping me with the stories.

I wonder if any of the Hogwarts ghosts besides Nick had buddies. Like I could see the Gray Lady taking a fucking chill pill and wafting about with Luna. I could see the Fat Friar talking to some student about a recent breakup, or talking a student out of suicide. I could see the Bloody Baron noticing a student writing about some war or battle from the time period he was alive and divulging.

Hogwarts Houses Aesthetic - Slytherin [version 1,2]

“Or perhaps in Slytherin,
You’ll make your real friends,
Those cunning folk use any means,
To achieve their ends.”

slytherin 

Slytherin is one of the four Houses at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Founded by Salazar Slytherin, the house is composed mostly of pure-blood students, due to its founder’s mistrust of Muggle-borns. The house is traditionally home to students who exhibit such traits as cunning, resourcefulness, and ambition. Its emblematic animal is a snake and its colours are green and silver. The house ghost is the Bloody Baron and its gem is green.

Slytherin corresponds roughly with the element of water with serpents being commonly associated with the sea and lochs in western European mythology, as well as serpents being physically fluid and flexible animals.

Lumber Baron House by loveofhouses

The Lumber Baron Inn & Gardens was named after John Mouat, a Scottish immigrant who amassed a fortune in lumber back in 1890. Mouat was instrumental in Denver’s growth. He worked with top architects to build this 8.500 square foot home for his family in Highlands – geographically and morally above Denver, a town of the wild west. His home featured cherry, oak, poplar, sycamore, maple and walnut – all adorned with distinct carvings and ornate detail. The dining room woodwork boasts individually carved rosettes of a variety of trees. Just as it does today, the third floor ballroom hosted social events under the elegant pyramid ceiling and on top of the beautiful maple floor. And on the main floor, Amelia Mouat’s original kitchen has been updated into a full catering kitchen capable of serving our overnight visitors and event guests Walter Keller and his family lovingly poured their heart and soul into restoring the Lumber Baron to its original glory. Working night and day, they did much of the work themselves. The building was a condemned apartment building when Walter bought it – major renovations were required. They literally gutted the building and rebuilt much of it – and they didn’t stop there. The uniquely detailed interior and themed Victorian rooms and furnishings took a lot of time, patience and care to put into place.
