Welcome to the degeneration of my mind. I am a whovian, potterhead, hiddlestoner, danosaur, phillion, and nerdfighter. I am completely Sherlocked, and now I'm into Homestuck. Oh dear
The majority of the people running this blog are Slytherins, including me. Am I to assume you don’t find us respectable because of our house association? That seems fair. In reality, only a handful of people that have been in Slytherin over the past 1000+ years have ended up notorious. True, our founder was prejudice, but so were Ravenclaw and Gryffindor. Only Hufflepuff said “I’ll teach the lot, regardless of their blood status, intelligence level, or inclination towards being brave”. Soooooo.
Hey guys… I uh… see where you’re coming from… And I know how much Harry Potter means to some of you but…. it’s still just a book….. Y’all don’t need to be fighting about houses that don’t exist… Peace for all… Ya feel
Those “houses that don’t exist” are based on very real traits that very real people have and identify with. To pigeonhole them based on just those traits alone, though, isn’t very fair. Pointing that out isn’t “fighting”.
And to say you know how much Harry Potter means to people and then in the next breath say “but it’s just a book” tells me you don’t actually have a clue what it means at all. And that’s fine. But maybe don’t minimize something that’s important to others just because you don’t personally get it.
