"Oh Merlin, you're in Slytherin. Only bad wizards were in that house!"

We've all heard it before. Being a Slytherin means danger, but does it really mean we are bad or even pure evil? No, and let me tell you why.

1. You aren't sorted by what traits you have, but by what traits you value the most

Gryffindors obviously value bravery. Ravenclaw intelligence. Huffelpuf kindness. And what's wrong with Slytherins valueing ambition? Absolutely nothing.

2. Slytherins are extremely loyal to those they care about

If you found yourself a Slytherin friend, you're a very lucky human being, because if one of us cares about you, he or she is ready to kill for you.

3. Slytherins and their sarcasm

Your daily dose of sarcasm can be found in the Slytherin house. Believe me, we will not dissapoint you.

Sorry sarcasm falls out of my mouth like stupidity falls out of yours.

4. We have Draco Malfoy

I mean, do you need to know more?

5. We own intimidating qualities

It has its pros and cons, but lets be honest, we are pretty cool. We're brave enough to go after our dreams and ambitions. We work hard to get what we want. If we have set our mind on something, we're determined to finish what we started. And, not to forget, we're smart enough to find the best way to do it.

6. Silver is our second house color

Beautiful and elegant, isn't it?

7. We like winning

Or better said, we love it. And that's a pretty good thing if you decide to play Quidditch, right?

8. Cunning can be a good trait

If it's not overused, it can bring you very far.

Sometimes I can feel my bones straining under the weight of all the lives I'm not living.
