idk who's they are but they're in my house


Aegon’s bastards had been the bane of the Seven Kingdoms ever since the old king died. He had legitimized the lot upon his deathbed; not only the Great Bastards like Bloodraven, Bittersteel, and Daemon Blackfyre, whose mothers had been ladies, but even the lesser ones he’d fathered on whores and tavern wenches, merchant’s daughters, mummer’s maidens, and every pretty peasant girl who chanced to catch his eye. Fire and Blood were the words of House Targaryen, but Dunk once heard Ser Arlan say that Aegon’s should have been Wash Her and Bring Her to My Bed. (The Sworn Sword)

As a Slytherin I'm not a huge fan of the "I'd kill for you" measure. It kind of perpetuates anti-slytherin sentiment. While it's a good measurement for the other houses, I feel it doesn't necessarily apply to the traits of Slytherin. There's a difference between being cunning and killing someone. I don't mean to take it too seriously lol I just don't think it could really be the best way to figure out your house, if the connotation directs away from Slytherin.

I actually like the “I’d kill for you” statement. To me it represents a Slytherin who will do whatever they can to get what they want and protect who they love. It’s not anti-Slytherin in my opinion because it’s representing ambition and a willingness to push yourself and get ahead no matter what. Also “I’d kill for you” sentiments are often said between friends who are fiercely loyal and protective of each other so I see it as a positive portrayal and not a “all Slytherins are evil murderers” portrayal. However, as someone who isn’t a Slytherin I totally respect a Slytherin’s opinion about something regarding their own house. But I hope I’ve explained my own reasoning well.
