So for those of you who don’t know, Hogwarts is a school of Magic (officially named Hogwarts School of Whichcraft and Wizardry) from the book and film series called Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling.
There are four Houses in Hogwarts, each named after one of the four founders of the school: Godric Gryffindor, Rowena Ravenclaw, Helga Hufflepuff and Salazar Slytherin.
Rereading the Harry Potter series, I noticed the prejudice against Slytherin House is positively horrendous.
The first mention of Slytherin is in the second chapter of the first book of the Harry Potter series (Harry potter and the Philosopher’s Stone) in Madam Malkins ‘Robes for all occasions.’ And naturally, Draco Malfoy - the epitome Slytherin - introduces us to the house. He is depicted as an arrogant, posh, upper-class, selfish snob and instantly makes most of us abhor him and by extension - Slytherin and the Malfoy name and family.
The second mention of Slytherin House appears later in the same chapter when Harry asks Hagrid what Slytherin is. He explains to Harry that it is a house at Hogwarts. Hagrid then proceeds to build the foundation of Harry’s hate towards Slytherin and everything associated with it - "There’s not a single witch or wizard who went bad who wasn’t in Slytherin.” (rubeus Hagrid).
Before I go on, I would like to explain what the official and official traits of Slytherin are. Official: Ambition Power Influence Shrewdness Cunning cleverness resourcefulness determination The latter three are mentioned in Book 2 By Dumbledore.
Unofficial (These I shall explain in more detail)
House Unity - This is displayed several times in the books. Slytherin House never sorts out disaccords in public. When around other people not in their house, Slytherins appear aloof, supportive and proud.
Abuse - Now, before you scowl angrily at your device and move onto the next post, hear me out. This isn’t a trait that applies to many students but after a little bit of research I found that children that have been abused either physically or emotionally in their childhood are more likely to be more controlling, ambitious, cunning and mature than other children their age. This is a result of their need to be cunning in situations in which require self-preservation. This can be seen with Tom Riddle. Bullied as a child, he became cunning, resourceful, powerful, manipulative and ambitious. The situations he found himself in, required him to be like that so that he could avoid any physical damage. Harry Potter is also an example of this. As much as some Slytherin haters like to deny, Harry Potter has many Slytherin traits: Resourcefulness, determination, power, influence, shrewdness, cunning, cleverness and quick wit (the films failed to show this - they were extremely biased and showed an extremely Gryffindor Harry). Harry was almost sorted into Slytherin but the hat decided to grant him his wish and sorted him into Gryffindor. People who have been deprived of power are often more likely to crave power over their own lives.
Aristocracy - Slytherins seem to all be pure-bloods and and some of them aristocrats. It was surprisingly hard to find any information about this topic, but I managed to find out that there are at least four ‘Most Ancient and Noble Houses’: Malfoy, Longbottom, Black and Greengrass. Three of these Houses are almost always in Slytherin. I also managed to find out that most purebloods are seen as the nobility of the Wizarding World. Curiously, most of them are in Slytherin. I assume that this is because pureblood children are often taught how to be cunning and ambitious. They are brought up to value the wizarding aristocratic traits - many of which coincide with Slytherin traits.
Blood Purity - Many Slytherins are purebloods as already stated above.
The general idea is, that these traits make people evil. But isn’t this a contradiction? Harry himself has most of these traits, and yet he’s a ‘hero’ and a completely benevolent and altruistic person, simply because he’s a Gryffindor.
Evil. That is what most witches and wizards perceive Slytherins as.
Before I rebuttal this terrible accusation i just want to say how hilariously moronic this is.
Slytherin being one of the four houses of Hogwarts is one fourth of the schools population. JK. Rowling stated in an interview that Hogwarts houses more or less 1.000 students, a fourth of which have to be either Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff or Slytherin. This means that 250 people are Slytherins. Can you honestly believe that 250 children between the ages of 11-18 are evil? That 250-f****ing-students are sadistic, homocidal psychopaths intent on following a clearly man man?
One might argue that several students in Harry’s year ended up as Slytherins. I don’t deny that… It has been confirmed, that Draco Malfoy, Vincent Crabbe, Gregory Goyle, Theodore Nott and Pansy Parkinson were all in Slytherin and ended up becoming Slytherins. I would also like to remind you that all of these students had at least one parent who was already involved with the Death Eaters. They had literally no way of escaping their fate.
What often disgusts me is that there are only four Slytherins which ended up ‘reforming’ themselves. Only four Slytherins that in the eyes of the public were ‘good’. Personally this disgust me. Slytherins are depicted as universally bad people. There isn’t a single likeable Slytherin. Not in the Order of the Phoenix, nor in the Auror Corps, nor in Dumbledore’s Army.
These are the only people in Slytherins who have been depicted as likeable… Isn’t it odd, that Severus Snape, one of the most unpleasant and discriminating people (as pointed out by Harry) is one of the most likeable Slytherins?
Essentially, the only Slytherins that contributed to the side trying to defeat the genocidal maniac aka, Voldemort, were Severus Snape, Horace Slughorn, Regulus Black and Andromeda Tonks - and these were all exceptions to the general social rule that Slytherin was evil.
To summarise; Slytherins aren’t evil. Their traits make them seem underhanded and sly, and people don’t often like being outsmarted (which is something Slytherins often do), hence that is the reason why society collectively bullies them.
I just want you to give Slytherin a chance - look behind all that snark and sarcasm. Focus on their ingenuity and talent in manipulation. Personally I admire Slytherins for their self-preservation, and ability to gently manipulate a conversation in any direction (as seen with Horace Slughorn and Tom Riddle).
Okay fellas. I get why JKR didn’t make Drarry canon and still fights it off. Some people see their chemistry, some don’t. I’m very much okay with that, as long as I can still read smutty fanfiction about it.
I even like Ginny and Astoria very much. JKR planned them to be rivals and all that. I get it.
But why the heck is JKR making Scorrose canon. W h y.
I mean if you’ve read Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, you’ll understand what I mean. That book is so gay. Scorpius and Albus mean everything to each other and they hug a lot and, you know, do gay stuff.
Plus Scorpius and Rose have, like, no chemistry at all. Rose hates Scorpius. She never wanted to befriend him, she believed the rumour that he was Voldemorts son, damn she even ended the friendship with Albus, her cousin, because he was close to Scorpius. I don’t see why they should end up together. For me, it’s just a bad attempt to bring a love story into this which isn’t gay. Because heteronormativity is sadly still a thing.
So guys, if you don’t agree with me, that’s okay, I just felt the need to say this. Scorbus was going so strong in CC.
Isa, we need to talk about Ron and Draco!! Ron who pulls no homophobic bs because he's RON, who accepts Draco with "if that's what you want, Harry, then it's fine by me", who pays close attention nevertheless, who grows to appreciate Draco in his own right. Draco who (tho never admitting it) works hard to gain Harry's best friend's trust, whose insults carry no malice anymore. Draco who, all of a sudden, finds himself with another friend. Ron and Draco enjoying each other's company!!
ron being thrilled to have found someone who challenges him in chess, ron and draco keeping up with every step of the chudley cannons, ron and draco laughing at inside jokes!!!
I still don’t understand why JKR couldn’t have written in just one Slytherin staying to fight for Hogwarts like do you really expect me to believe that none of the Slytherins cared about their school/teachers/friends and are just so cold hearted nothing matters but themselves? Cause I refuse to believe that. I mean even Voldemort tried to save as much of Hogwarts as he could and he’s the epitome of slytherin-gone-bad so why don’t any of the students?
Do you actually ship Hermione and Pansy?!?! Because that girl was incredibly rude to Hermione. She was disgustingggg J.K. rowling hates her. I hate her. And if you think that there can be love from such a horrible relwtionship based on insecurities and hate I am seriously worried for you. Unfollowing. (Also Pansy ans Ginny?!? Lansy is terrible! My girls are pure gold. Do NOTTTT tell me you would want to dim their light by shipping them with someone who does nothing other than hate ont hem)
Lol um…this is a Drarry blog? If you’re hating on characters just because JKR hates them, why did you follow me in the first place? And yes, I ship Pansmione. I also ship Ginsy. Because I believe Pansy Parkinson was misrepresented. The books were in Harry’s perspective for the most part. He was prejudiced against Slytherins, and she was always hanging off of Malfoy, who he hated. Of course she was going to be seen as dreadful in Harry’s eyes. The beauty of fanfiction and shipping is that we can take ambiguity and give characters their humanity. Pansy is one of my favorite characters to interpret because what we’ve been given in canon is so biased and vague. She has a whole life to imagine, and we’re left to determine which traits were true to Pansy, and which were falsifications made by Harry. Harry calls her “pug-faced” but Skeeter says she’s attractive–not that Skeeter’s word is anything to go by, but it does open up the question of how much of Harry’s narration we can trust. There are tons of characters he misjudged (ie. Snape wants the stone, Tom Riddle is a trustworthy guy in this cool journal that swallows up ink, etc.). Harry isn’t always right about people, so who’s to say his hatred of Pansy was deserved? Yes, she did bad things. Does that mean she’s a bad person? Not necessarily. That’s a big part of what the Harry Potter series was about. Good people do bad things. Albus Dumbledore enabled abuse.James Potter bullied Snape. Severus Snape treated his students like crap. Xenophilius Lovegood turned in the Golden Trio. The list goes on and on. Harry Potter is about looking past people’s flaws and mistakes. So yes, I ship Pansy with Hermione, and Ginny, and whoever else strikes my fancy, because Pansy is more than the flaws Harry points out. She has a family, and feelings, and traditions to uphold. She has pressures put on her just like anyone else. And just because Harry never got the chance to see the things that made her beautiful doesn’t mean I can’t see them.
Just wanted to share with you guys some of the tweets from the one who started the whole Snape debate, why JKR waste her time with this kind of people is beyond me.
“You have to be stupid to miss that, I have read the books plenty of times and I do know what I am talking about! Snape switched sides AFTER Voldemort killed the Potters. Everyone was a hero, he was just obsessed. He walked over James. Yeah he did some good but…”
What she's thinking:
If you got a tattoo in the wizarding world, would it move? It stands to reason that they could, since paintings and printed pictures do. But we don't know what goes into making them move, so is it possible to transfer that to tattoo ink? Could your tattoos visit tattoos on other peoples' bodies? What if someone else's tattoo didn't want to leave your body? What if two tattoos ended up overlapping? What would happen if you die - would your tattoos stop moving or would they live on? What if you got a portrait tattoo? Could you have conversations with your own body art like you can paintings? The newspaper pictures couldn't talk. Maybe it has to do with the amount of involvement from the subject, or maybe the amount of time put into the medium. What if you wanted to get a cover up, or get one removed? Would it feel pain? The paintings probably don't feel pain, but we know they feel emotions, as evidenced time and time again by the Fat Lady, so they might have phantom pains. So would getting a tattoo removed be like murder? Why won't JKR acknowledge that we need to know these things? Will she ever release that encyclopedia she promised us? Doesn't she realize how important it is that we know every single thing there is to know about Harry Potter? If I tweet her to ask, do you think she'd answer? How hard would it be to find her address?
is it just me or is anyone else pissed that slytherins are portreyed as the "ugly" house, like in the books and in the movies they seemed to try and give them physical traits that are not seen as attractive in society... im not one to focus on looks but i just reread a book and to me it seems jk went out of her way to describe them as unattractive.. you would think bc were "sooo self asorbed" we would focus on our looks more and make ourselves look nothing less than perfect.
This makes mE SO MAD!!! I noticed it while reading the books (before I realized I was Slytherin) and I still got frustrated even then! wHY JKR WHY
