You can see opposition and imposition or you can see an opportunity. As a part of the slytherin house, I choose to see opportunity. If you’ve chosen to see opposition, and I seize your opportunity, I assure you that it is less selfless and more self-serving. In these situations you’ll walk away thanking me, but i’ll be all the richer for reaping the benefits of my choice, while you will walk away never knowing what you could have had.

видишь ли, гарри, так вышло, что в тебе много качеств, которые столь высоко ценил салазар слизерин у своих любимых учеников, — находчивость, решительность, чего греха таить, пренебрежение к школьным правилам. — тут усы директора вновь задрожали. — и, наконец, редчайший дар — змеиный язык однако же волшебная шляпа направила тебя в гриффиндор. Знаешь почему? подумай!
— только потому, что я просил не посылать меня в слизерин… — сокрушенно произнес гарри.
— верно. — дамблдор опять улыбнулся. — именно в этом твоё отличие от тома реддла. Ведь человек — это не свойство характера, а сделанный им выбор.
Дж.К. Ролинг

You might belong in gryffindor,
where dwell the brave at heart,
their daring, nerve, and chivalry,
set gryffindors apart;
you might belong in hufflepuff,
where they are just and loyal,
those patient hufflepuffs are true,
and unafraid of toil;
or yet in wise old ravenclaw,
if you’ve a ready mind,
where those of wit and learning,
will always find their kind;
or perhaps in slytherin,
you’ll make your real friends,
these cunning folks use any means
to achieve their ends.

We slytherins are brave, yes, but not stupid. For instance, given the choice, we will always choose to save our own necks.

You could be great, you know, it’s all here in your head, and slytherin will help you on the way to greatness, no doubt about that.

You’re a parselmouth. Why didn’t you tell us?”
“i’m a what?” said harry.
“a parselmouth!” said ron. “you can talk to snakes!”
“i know,” said harry. “i mean, that’s only the second time i’ve ever done it. I accidentally set a boa constrictor on my cousin dudley at the zoo once- long story- but it was telling me it had never seen brazil and I sort of set it free without meaning to- that was before I knew I was a wizard-“
“a boa constrictor told you it had never seen brazil?” ron repeated faintly.
“so?” said harry. “i bet loads of people here can do it.”
“oh, no they can’t,” said ron. “it’s not a very common gift. Harry, this is bad.”
“what’s bad?” said harry, starting to feel quite angry. “what’s wrong with everyone? listen, if I hadn’t told that snake not to attack justin-“
“oh, that’s what you said to it?”
“what d’you mean? you were there- you heard me-“
“i heard you speaking parseltongue,” said ron. “snake language. You could have been saying anything- no wonder justin panicked, you sounded like you were egging the snake on or something- it was creepy, you know-“
harry gaped at him.
“i spoke a different language? but- I didn’t realize- how can I speak a language without knowing I can speak it?”
ron shook his head. Both he and hermione were looking as though someone had died. Harry couldn’t see what was so terrible.
“d’you want to tell me what’s wrong with stopping a massive snake biting off justin’s head?” he said. “what does it matter how I did it as long as justin doesn’t have to join the headless hunt?”
“it matters,” said hermione, speaking at last in a hushed voice, “because being able to talk to snakes was what salazar slytherin was famous for. That’s why the symbol of slytherin house is a serpent.”
harry’s mouth fell open.
“exactly,” said ron. “and now the whole school’s going to think you’re his great-great-great-great-grandson or something…”
“but i’m not,” said harry, with a panic he couldn’t quite explain.
“you’ll find that hard to prove,” said hermione. “he lived about a thousand years ago; for all we know, you could be.

Harry had to crane his neck to look up into the giant face above: it was ancient and monkeyish, with a long, thin beard that fell almost to the bottom of the wizard’s sweeping stone robes, where two enormous gray feet stood on the smooth chamber floor. And between the feet, facedown, lay a small, black-robed figure with flaming-red hair.
“ginny!” harry muttered, sprinting to her and dropping to his knees. “ginny- don’t be dead- please don’t be dead-” he flung his wand aside, grabbed ginny’s shoulders, and turned her over. Her face was white as marble, and as cold, yet her eyes were closed, so she wasn’t petrified. But then she must be-
“ginny, please wake up,” harry muttered desperately, shaking her. Ginny’s head lolled hopelessly from side to side.
“she won’t wake,” said a soft voice.
harry jumped and spun around on his knees.
a tall, black-haired boy was leaning against the nearest pillar, watching. He was strangely blurred around the edges, as though harry were looking at him through a misted window. But there was no mistaking him-
“tom- tom riddle?”
riddle nodded, not taking his eyes off harry’s face.
“what d’you mean, she won’t wake?” harry said desperately. “she’s not- she’s not-?”
“she’s still alive,” said riddle. “but only just.

You all know, of course, that hogwarts was founded over a thousand years ago- the precise date is uncertain- by the four greatest witches and wizards of the age. The four school houses are named after them: godric gryffindor, helga hufflepuff, rowena ravenclaw, and salazar slytherin. They built this castle together, far from prying muggle eyes, for it was an age when magic was feared by common people, and witches and wizards suffered much persecution.”
he paused, gazed blearily around the room, and continued.
“for a few years, the founders worked in harmony together, seeking out youngsters who showed signs of magic and bringing them to the castle to be educated. But then disagreements sprang up between them. A rift began to grow between slytherin and the others. Slytherin wished to be more selective about the students admitted to hogwarts. He believed that magical learning should be kept within all-magic families. He disliked taking students of muggle parentage, believing them to be untrustworthy. After a while, there was a serious argument on the subject between slytherin and gryffindor, and slytherin left the school.”
professor binns paused again, pursing his lips, looking like a wrinkled old tortoise.
“reliable historical sources tell us this much,” he said. “but these honest facts have been obscured by the fanciful legend of the chamber of secrets. The story goes that slytherin had built a hidden chamber in the castle, of which the other founders knew nothing.
slytherin, according to legend, sealed the chamber of secrets so that none would be able to open it until his own true heir arrived at the school. The heir alone would be able to unseal the chamber of secrets, unleash the horror within, and use it to purge the school of all who were unworthy to study magic.

Sorting hat: “albus potter.”

he puts his hat on albus’s head — and this time he seems to take longer — almost as if he too is confused.


there’s a silence.
a perfect, profound silence.
one that sits low, twists a bit, and has damage within it.

J.K. Rowling

One must command from each what each can preform.
