I was just thinking about the Hogwarts houses and how Slytherin had made a name for itself for being the house of dark wizards and I was confused about a certain aspect of their reputation. When Dumbledore said, “It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities”, when they were talking about how Harry had asked to be in Gyffindor instead of Slytherin, was Dumbledore saying that if Harry had chosen to be in Slytherin, that would have proven that Harry was choosing a bad path?
Are Slytherins really so bad? Is it positive that every student to ever be sorted to Slytherin should lie and cheat and hate Gryffindors? Are kids who are sorted into Slytherin to be automatically branded as cowards because of the choices of bad people in the past?
Why can’t Slytherins be seen as normal kids? Just kids who happen to have a lot of drive to do things and make a name for themselves? Kids who have free, independent will and can make good choices despite their house’s bad name?
I wish they could be given a chance to make a new name for themselves.
It is a truth universally acknowledged that cat gifs will always be the most reblogged thing you’ve ever posted on your blog.
I mean, who does’t like these cute little snuggle bugs??
They even look cute wearing hats
And look majestic in the arms of a vulcan
so in short, cats own the world
and there’s nothing we can do about it but drown in their furry, fluffy cuteness
