maria-m-art asked:

I used to think I was a Ravenclaw because I like to think I’m intelligent, and that’s what Ravenclaw's all about, right? But after being sorted into Slytherin, I gave that another thought. I don’t just want to be intelligent. I want to get somewhere with my intelligence, to put all my effort toward building myself up as a person, so I can get to somewhere I’d be proud of. I'm not in the business of stomping over others to get there like people seem to think we all are. I'm just ambitious is all.

For so long I felt ashamed of my ambition. I always strived to be at the top of my class. I was super competitive. It was something that people tended to frown upon. It was unseemly. It was selfish. Slytherin changed that for me. Ambition is something special. When paired with kindness and compassion it can do the greatest good. I want to do good. I want to drive the big changes our society needs. Ambition is the midwife of change. Big changes come with big dreams. Slytherin embraces that.


"We Slytherins look after our own… The corridors of Hogwarts can throw up surprises for the unwary, and you’ll be glad you’ve got the Serpents on your side as you move around the school. As far as we’re concerned, once you’ve become a snake, you’re one of ours – one of the elite. Because you know what Salazar Slytherin looked for in his chosen students? The seeds of greatness. You’ve been chosen by this house because you’ve got the potential to be great, in the true sense of the word. All right, you might see a couple of people hanging around the common room whom you might not think are destined for anything special. Well, keep that to yourself. If the Sorting Hat put them in here, there’s something great about them, and don’t you forget it.

I was first sorted into Slytherin for a competition, because no one else would 'be able to handle the shame'. I have since been sorted several times, and I feel most at home in Slytherin. I'm certainly ambitious, and my cleverness has often been commented on. Unfortunately, the only thing that dampens my Slytherin pride is when people use my house as an insult
