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.

Hogwarts Houses with Anxiety
  • for anon
  • please note- this post is in reference to members that have an anxiety disorder, not members displaying nervousness. It is not meant to perpetuate neurodivergence as a accessory.
  • Gryffindor: physical symptoms are pronounced, but emotions tend to bottle up over time. They reach out to their loved ones for support.
  • Slytherin: symptoms are minimized, and they avoid having public attacks as much as they can. They try to prevent attacks as soon as they see them coming.
  • Ravenclaw: they are open about their anxiety, and look for help themselves. They develop their own coping mechanisms like grounding if they can.
  • Hufflepuff: they are realistic about anxiety, and have set coping methods they try to use during attacks, like pacing their breathing and fiddling with an elastic.
