HP House Aesthetics
- Gryffindor: paint splatters, bruises, beat up Converse, worn out t-shirts, fighting bullies, permanent sweat stains, scrapes, dirty pick-up trucks, lazy Saturday afternoons, wrestling with your dog, the smell of fresh cut grass, unintentional staring at pretty girls, the taste of blood in your mouth after a punch, the sharp taste of cinnamon, the smell of burning wood, holding the door open for someone, loud music, desperately wanting to be remembered, bright and colourful tattoos, boisterously stubborn, dirty jokes, jarring hugs that make your heart happy, chocolate chip cookies, rough neck kisses, grocery store raids at 2AM, loud and reverberating and body-shaking anger, "love is unpredictable, it's that fiery feeling in your soul when you realize that you've chosen to protect someone and fight for them above all else. love is freeing."
- Slytherin: the smell of freshly trimmed trees, the crunch of fresh snow underfoot, running through the forest, truth or dare, thunderstorms, lingering kisses, protecting friends and family, sharp retorts, proving to people who have failed you that you don't need them, driving fast with the windows down, close-knit friend groups, action and drama movies, long walks on the beach at night, hugging someone tightly after not seeing them for months, peppermint & chocolate, fresh cologne, wanting to accomplish something meaningful, intense and passionate anger that brings a flood of tears, avoidance/dislike of change, knowing that failure is always an option but never ever choosing it, quietly stubborn, skipping classes to goof off and just take a break, constantly competitive, the way a brand new book smells, laughing so hard you can't breathe, "love is a choice and it can be hard to come by, but once the choice is made, there's no going back, you're in it for better or worse. love is a permanent cornerstone."
- Hufflepuff: freshly baked muffins, warm sunlight on a cool afternoon, the ache deep in your muscles after working hard, hugging someone close whenever you see them, puns, pastel colors in a sketchbook, building sand castles till the waves knock them over, watching the sun set, kisses on the forehead, helping someone with their homework, a burning desire to make a difference in the world, calm and collected and righteous anger, running through fields, running up and hugging someone from behind, black and white movies, using your voice for the first time to say how you feel, defending your friends against the world, defiantly stubborn against a wrong doing, "love is a feeling, but it's not that warm fuzzy feeling; it's that turning in your chest that signifies a deeper emotional connection with someone than you've ever had before. love is understanding."
- Ravenclaw: cool rain on a cloudy afternoon, witty jokes and puns, fruity lemonade, bike rides in the cool of the morning, sweet hugs when someone is upset/not feeling well, acting in a play, a kiss on the cheek, wanting to create something for the world, bright colors splashed on a canvas, laughing so hard you cry, painstakingly detailed book reports, chaotically organized bookshelves, excitement over the little things, the smell of old books, painfully silent anger that makes you want to yell, unfinished colourful crafts strewn about, constant daydreaming, unyielding stubbornness in every area of life, "love is like rain: when it rains it pours, and sometimes there's droughts. the clouds don't choose when they spill rain or not, they just do. love chooses you."
