SLYTHERIN: “They say Icarus was a fool for flying too close to the sun. I say it’s only because of him we know how close we can get. I love the fall of those brave enough to fail for the right reasons. Fuck the easy glory of mere excellence. The only legacy I will accept is to know that however far I got - it was as far as I was capable of going. I want to drown in my own sweat knowing there was nothing left.” -Jared Singer + Anthony Ragle (Potential)
I’m really tired of people who are anti-social, or who call themselves weird, aligning themselves with Slytherin. That isn’t what makes you a Slytherin. Slytherins know how to work with people, it’s how they get what they want. Slytherins are calculating, judgmental, and driven. They see what they want and go after it. I blame Rowling for making people think Slytherin is the house for the outsiders, because it is treated as the bad house, but it’s not.
