we always talk abt how slytherins aren’t all angry and evil, why don’t we talk about how hufflepuffs aren’t always happy and shallow? Just and loyal does not mean naïve and stupid, and the fact that everyone thinks it does shows how little kindness is valued. Hufflepuffs are the ones at rallies and marches, calling their representatives every day and night and running equality accounts-just. Hufflepuffs are the ones staying up all night to talk to their friends, jumping over tables to defend their squad and helping people through the worst parts of their lives-loyal. We are not all stupid and happy, we are angry and passionate. We aren’t all flowers and sunshine, we are huge signs and wiping away tears from our the faces of our loved ones. We aren’t put in our house because we aren’t smart, or brave, or cunning. We understand that kindness in the face of adversity encompasses all of those traits and more. We are not the children. We are not your leftovers.

Slytherin: Huff!!
Hufflepuff: …
Slytherin:Huff!!
Hufflepuff: What?!
Slytherin: never mind…
Slytherin: I just needed a hug
Hufflepuff: oh my gosh, come here my baby!

Give me Hufflepuffs who suffer from social anxiety
Give me Hufflepuffs who have anger issues
Give me Hufflepuffs who have a resting bitch face
Give me Hufflepuffs who like to dress all in black
Give me Hufflepuffs who swear
Give me Hufflepuffs who are introverted af
Give me Hufflepuffs who are tough and always ready to fight to defend themselves and their loved ones
Give me Hufflepuffs who don’t fit into the “pure and peaceful cinnamon roll” stereotype.
Give me Hufflepuffs who are people with a dark side and many flaws
Give me Hufflepuffs who are not afraid to be themselves and show their true colors just because they’re always expected to be the “soft” ones and the “peacemakers”
Give me Hufflepuffs who value hard work, dedication, loyalty, fair play and patience but they are still free to behave however they want because we’re real people goddammit. We are not your stereotypes. We are the house of diversity. Let us be more than “good”. We are complicated. We have struggles. We have many sides.

Let us be real.

Hufflepuff: I’m so sorry…
Slytherin: Don’t be sorry!
Slytherin: You’re nothing but an angel!
Slytherin: You tried to help us which is a sweet move!
Hufflepuff: You’re yelling nice things at me and it’s very confusing.

............

Hufflepuff: threatens a death eater
Slytherin: Fuck. I’m in love.

............

Hufflepuff: oh look such a cute boy I think I have a crush on her!
Ravenclaw: it’s a girl
Hufflepuff: oh…
Hufflepuff: look such a cute girl I think I have a crush on him!

............

my new aesthetic is a slytherpuff same sex relationship where, because of their personality, everyone thinks the hufflepuff is the ultimate bottom and slytherin is one hell of a powerful top, but when in bed it turns out hufflepuff is a dominant top and even kinda sadistic (a sexual beast let’s be clear) and slytherin is the type who cries out of pleasure and likes to be dominated… and begs
and hufflepuff allows everyone to think this way for the sake of slytherin’s pride.

“There’s no point in being brave or brilliant or ambitious if you aren’t kind at least some of the time.”

Hufflepuff Appreciation
Hufflepuffs are like sunshine. They are warm and kind and caring and make the world a better place for being in it.
Slytherins enjoy basking in that warmth, something snakes don’t produce on our own.
And, like the sun, they can burn you to death and Slytherins respect that.

............

Gryffindor: mumbling and strangely moving around
Ravenclaw: What are you doing?
Gryffindor: Summoning Satan.
Ravenclaw: Why would you need to see Slytherin so early in the morning?

............

Ravenclaw: I hate you.
Gryffindor: I think you pronounce "love" wrong.
Ravenclaw: Well... I hate "love".
Gryffindor: I won't give up but okay.

watching a scary movie
Hufflepuff: curled in a blanket burrito with just their eyes visible
Gryffindor: shoveling popcorn into their mouth with eyes glued to the screen
Slytherin: trying desperately to keep cool but is halfway into Hufflepuff's lap
Ravenclaw: flails wildly when scary things happen and accidentally kicks everyone at least twice

Houses in a Magical Creatures Class

Gryffindor: * The one who attempts to recapture it, but makes things worse*

Ravenclaw: It's weird you celebrate Valentine's Day, didn't you say nobody likes you?

Ravenclaw: sees someone being stupid in the distance
Ravenclaw: Pfft, what an idiot.
Ravenclaw: realizes it's Gryffindor
Ravenclaw: Oh wait, that's my idiot.

Ravenclaw: I’m not getting into anymore stupid debates with Gryffindor.
Gryffindor: Water is not wet.
Ravenclaw: …
Ravenclaw: How the hell is water not wet?! It’s water!

headcanon that ravenclaw and hufflepuff had just as big of a rivalry as slytherin and gryffindor
.it didn’t start out that way
.not really
-but it became that way over time
.the two houses just wanted that same kind of dynamic
.they wanted to have a team to cheer against in quidditch when their own team wasn’t playing
.they wanted a house to rigorously fight against for the house cup
.so it just kinda happened
.by the time harry potter comes around, it’s in full force, has been for many years
.as a result of the double rivalry, the slytherins and hufflepuffs come together
.which results in the gryffindors and ravenclaws coming together because yes, they are that petty
.everyone is
.at quidditch matches, the hufflepuffs cheer for slytherin and the ravenclaws cheer for gryffindor and vice versa
.these new duos are inseparable
.they create the best of friendships this way
.when the boy who lived is named a gryffindor, the hufflepuffs are just as disappointed as the slytherins, and the ravenclaws are excited for their gryffindor friends (though, they still secretly wish he could have been one of them)
.the ravenclaws and slytherins don’t know what to do with themselves when both a hufflepuff and a gryffindor are representing their school in the triwizard tournament during harry’s fourth year
.when cedric and cho get together, no one can understand it
.and in the second challenge, the hufflepuffs are appalled that a ravenclaw is what their own cedric diggory would miss the most
.however, by the end of the year, a lot of the ravenclaws surprisingly grow fond of cedric
.he isn’t so bad after all
.absolutely everyone is broken when he dies
.nevertheless, ravenclaw and hufflepuff friendships and relationships are rare throughout the years just as gryffindor and slytherin
.this is of course with the exception of luna lovegood
.luna befriends over half the hufflepuffs throughout her hogwarts years
.when questioned about it, the hufflepuffs dismissively respond with “oh, it’s just luna”
.luna isn’t questioned on it because well, she’s luna
.after the second war, the rivalries all kinda go away
.they pick back up again years later, but it’s not as serious, it’s all in good fun
.and when james sirius potter finally gets to hogwarts and is sorted into gryffindor, well, let’s just say that teddy lupin isn’t sure how he’ll explain it to his slytherin friends

Hufflepuff: How was the honeymoon?
Ravenclaw: Gryffindor got very drunk and tried to set our marriage certificate on fire
Ravenclaw: They said, “Good luck trying to return me without the receipt”
Ravenclaw: I don't know everything. Despite the fact that you think I do.
Gryffindor: I never said that. When have I ever said that?
Ravenclaw: Everyday since I met you.
Hufflepuff: This morning at breakfast.
Slytherin: Yesterday, when he beat you at cards.

Gryffindor: Kiss me and you’ll find out.

why the houses need the other
slytherin needs gryffindor: they're great thinkers, but fucking hell, they pussy out. they overthink all their decisions. they need someone to help them just push the button to their amazing plans
slytherin needs ravenclaw: just to calm the fuck down. both of the houses stress their butts off, they get annoyed by ravenclaws when they stress, forgetting their own stress and realizing that, now they see the ravenclaws stress, their stress is not gonna solve anything
slytherin needs hufflepuff: guys, i dont wanna follow the stereotype, but F U C K, slytherins are just way too mean and rude and need a little positivity nd genuinely nice people
gryffindor needs slytherin: 1) sexual tension 2) s e x u a l t e n s i o n 3) they can make the best plans ever, but a gryffindor seriously needs a slytherin to help them with like, take over the world
gryffindor needs ravenclaw: just to keep their feet on the ground & their head on their shoulders when they dream TOO big
gryffindor needs hufflepuff: to keep their heads orientated. when idea's & thought become one big blur, they need a hufflepuff to help them sort it out
ravenclaw needs slytherin: to talk about feelings. slytherins can be very understanding and good at listening, and a ravenclaw can really need this sometimes
ravenclaw needs gryffindor: to have a stubborn opponent. they like a tiny bit of challenge sometimes and the slytherins are just TOO determined to win, the hufflepuffs not determined enough & the gryffindors are just perfect; fun and stubborn
ravenclaw needs hufflepuff: to have someofun. i'm really not saying that ravenclaws aren't fun, just that their fun is 10x better when with a hufflepuff. they also make sure you stay healthy in stressfull periods of time, a must for a humon body
hufflepuff needs a slytherin: to realize fun isnt everything in life, to keep them out of their dreamworld back to reality sometimes. also because sometimes you kinda really need to get to get things done
hufflepuff needs gryffindor: because of all the challenges they bring in hufflepuffs life and their bolder qualities allowing hufflepuffs to be less shy & more comfortable in their skin
hufflepuff needs ravenclaw: to help them focus on little things & help them see beauty in things like WHY the stars move and how it comes the sky is bluer in spring than in summer
