To go to bed and to wake up again day after day besides a woman, to lie in bed with our arms around each other and drift in and out of sleep, to be with each other—not as a quick stolen pleasure, nor as a wild treat—but like sunlight, day after day in the regular course of our lives. I was discovering all the ways that love creeps into life when two selves exist closely, when two women meet.

Gryffindors are short, but tight hugs that make you gasp for air, or an emotional hug when you see a person after a long time. Gryffindors are the passion you feel in a brief yet loving embrace, that make you feel desired, that make you realize that you’re not alone, that give you courage in dark times.

Slytherins are the type of people that always try to give you a little more love back than you’re giving them, like a little hug competition. Slytherins hold you close, it’s a whole, tight embrace that feels a little like a snake coiling around you (matching to their house animal). They love long-lasting, warm squeezes and hate to be the first one pulling back.

Ravenclaws usually don’t like too much body contact, but if there’s a ‘special person’ they literally transform into cuddle monsters. Ravenclaws love gentle, cradling hugs that last long, it’s even okay if you just wrap your arms around them without squeezing too much. It’s the feeling of being held that tempts Ravenclaws.

Hufflepuffs are sweet, heart-warming cuddles. They’re here to cheer you up, to whisper encouraging words to you while holding you close. Hufflepuffs are always up for hugs, no matter when or where; they just love the feeling of sharing body warmth, of rocking back and forth while snuggling and the soft tickling when the person they love breathes against them.
