You'll make your real friends,
Those cunning folk use any means,
To achieve their ends."
And because I wanted to celebrate my sorting day into Slytherin and the Slytherin house in general, I also made this version of the ''Year Of The Snake'' painting I did (;
I wondered if I could give my own twist to the Slytherin symbol and ended up re-designing the shield frame and title, merging it together with the painting of the snake I did :] I felt like
expressing my pride to be in the house and wanted to contribute something at least : P
And then something I believe...
The house has a bad reputation as Rowling only describes the stereotypical Slytherins in her books, plus the fact that many Slytherins ended up becoming death eaters. You all might know the image of the arrogant, untrustworthy, sly and cheating type of Slytherin...
but this really is a wrong image some people have. People who got sorted in Slytherin or who relate to the house are
genuinely nice people who help eachother out no matter what. They do have morals, are actually hard workers and are definitely not all arrogant and all that stuff. The people on the site(s) are definitely
not like the Slytherins described in the books. The way you end up as a Slytherin is the way you use the traits you posess. Which can indeed go into a bad or good direction. It's up to you what path you take! Like many times stated
Not all Gryffindors are show-offs,
Not all Ravenclaws are egocentric,
Not all Hufflepuffs are pushovers,
And not all Slytherins are death eaters or arrogant gits (; Keep that in mind!
I wear the color green and silver with pride.I always thought that I'd end up in Gryffindor as I thought I was quit the courageous person, but I noticed that ambition was more of a suiting trait and the overall descriptions, visions and points of view written by many people and J.K. Rowling herself about
Slytherin and the house it's traits, made me relate more to Slytherin. In the end, I indeed ended up getting Slytherin as the result in many different tests. Now I've read more about the other houses, I indeed feel like I ended up in the right house (:
And remember, no matter in which house you got sorted for those who did out there, be yourself and don't let the stereotyping get to you ! Wear your colors with pride and help your house out in times of need !
And for fellow Slytherins who are interested (and also for people from other houses!),

I found this wonderful post on Tumblr about the Slytherin house and all it's positive sides ! It's to all of the people who doubt the Slytherin house and to those wo are sad to get sorted into the Slytherin house.
I simply could have never said it more right than they did in that post !Link to the post: pottermoreanalysis.tumblr.com/…
