Things I Associate With the Hogwarts Houses:

Slytherin: the first snow of winter, vodka, coy smirks across the room at your lover, black silk, the feel of satin against your skin, a wife and a mistress sharing a knowing smile across the coffin at the funeral, Arctic Monkeys songs, Lana Del Rey songs, the look of trees in winter, foggy mornings, the flash of gray eyes, whispered threats, film noirs, black tie events, lacy black lingerie, fur coats, the smell of expensive perfumes, the scent of old paper, “Take Me to Church” by Hozier, jazz funerals, New Orleans, making threats against any person who dares cross you or anyone you care for, mirrors draped in black, silent comforts from a loved ones, New York high society, burning photographs, spilt wine, the way your chin trembles while you’re trying not to cry, sucking in deep breaths of frigid air, being pricked by the thorns of a beautiful flower, crying alone in your bed late at night, every song that’s ever made you feel like you could rule the world, Russia, grunge, romantic languages
Gryffindor: running through wheat fields, walking barefoot through grass as night falls, slamming doors, loud arguments, angry tears, a room warmed by a crackling fire, cable-knit sweaters, Dublin, having a drink with your friends, whiskey, brown, silent prayers, kissing a cross for good luck, coming home for Thanksgiving, loss of innocence, dark wood, heavy quilts, the burn in your chest when you hold your breath for a long time, rolling Irish fields, modern houses done in all dark woods and glass, weathered hands, callouses, freckles, the feeling in your stomach you have right before you ask someone on a date, Rome, The Killers songs
Ravenclaw: intelligent conversation, biting remarks, academic debate, English boarding schools, opals, Indie music, old records, perfectly written research papers, silver rings, days spent in bed reading, nails bitten down to the quick, eye-rolling, bitter laughter, sly smiles, angry blushing, independent films, witty banter, flirting in another language, school uniforms
Hufflepuff: the happy laughter of small children, stealing an extra cookie off the plate, cute little cottages nestled on the edges of forests, letting someone cut you in line, the feelings of saying “I do” at the altar, the feeling of catching your breath after a good run, C.S. Lewis novels, silent prayers, smiling at your friend from the back of the room, encouraging nods, standing to applaud someone, silent self-doubt, skinned knees, mismatched socks, silly drawings, curious glances, shy giggles, laughing until your sides hurt, “We’re Going to Be Friends” by The White Stripes, crystals, your first day of college, inspiring speeches, dark curly hair, happy blushing, your first kiss, playing hopscotch, whispering encouraging things to someone who’s doubting themselves

leave some love!
