Slytherin House STAMP by CrystalLynnblud Slytherin House STAMP by CrystalLynnblud
IGNORE THE STRANGE GREY BACKGROUND! - it works the same as any other stamp: transparent and everything.

With all the excitement of Pottermore's pending public release approaching, I thought it was appropriate to make stamps of the official Pottermore Hogwarts House crests so deviants can (when they finally get the opportunity to be officially sorted) proudly show off which house they belong to. If you're one of the lucky people to already know your house, feel free to use whichever one you've been sorted into!

If this isn't the house you belong in, never fear! The other houses can be found here:

SLYTHERIN HOUSE LETTER:


Congratulations! I’m Prefect Gemma Farley, and I’m delighted to welcome you to SLYTHERIN HOUSE. Our emblem is the serpent, the wisest of creatures; our house colours are emerald green and silver, and our common room lies behind a concealed entrance down in the dungeons. As you’ll see, its windows look out into the depths of the Hogwarts lake. We often see the giant squid swooshing by – and sometimes more interesting creatures. We like to feel that our hangout has the aura of a mysterious, underwater shipwreck.

Now, there are a few things you should know about Slytherin – and a few you should forget.

Firstly, let’s dispel a few myths. You might have heard rumours about Slytherin house – that we’re all into the Dark Arts, and will only talk to you if your great-grandfather was a famous wizard, and rubbish like that. Well, you don’t want to believe everything you hear from competing houses. I’m not denying that we’ve produced our share of Dark wizards, but so have the other three houses – they just don’t like admitting it. And yes, we have traditionally tended to take students who come from long lines of witches and wizards, but nowadays you’ll find plenty of people in Slytherin house who have at least one Muggle parent.

Here’s a little-known fact that the other three houses don’t bring up much: Merlin was a Slytherin. Yes, Merlin himself, the most famous wizard in history! He learned all he knew in this very house! Do you want to follow in the footsteps of Merlin? Or would you rather sit at the old desk of that illustrious ex-Hufflepuff, Eglantine Puffett, inventor of the Self-Soaping Dishcloth?

I didn’t think so.

But that’s enough about what we’re not. Let’s talk about what we are, which is the coolest and edgiest house in this school. We play to win, because we care about the honour and traditions of Slytherin..

We also get respect from our fellow students. Yes, some of that respect might be tinged with fear, because of our Dark reputation, but you know what? It can be fun, having a reputation for walking on the wild side. Chuck out a few hints that you’ve got access to a whole library of curses, and see whether anyone feels like nicking your pencil case.

But we’re not bad people. We’re like our emblem, the snake: sleek, powerful, and frequently misunderstood.

For instance, we Slytherins look after our own – which is more than you can say for Ravenclaw. Apart from being the biggest bunch of swots you ever met, Ravenclaws are famous for clambering over each other to get good marks, whereas we Slytherins are brothers. 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.

Slytherin & Pottermore (c) J.K. Rowling

Funny thing is, I got Slytherin when I first tried out when Pottermore was just released, and it would be the understatement of the year that I was surprised lol. I have nothing against Slytherin, really, but found it hard to process into my head that I'm supposed to be" Cunning, Ambitious, Resourceful, Determined, Shrewd."
I had been told once that I was resourceful, but I had never been called cunning or shrewd or ambitious, so it was quite a surprise.
I actually tried the Sorting a few more time, and 9 out of 10, I got Ravenclaw, which made more sense to me ^^ I once (just once!) got Griffindor when I was feeling pretty rebellious because of my parent's divorce Sweating a little... But sadly, never got Hufflepuff. I personally value Hufflepuff's attributes most; loyal, patient, hardworking, fair, and true.

How I wound up in Slytherin, I'll likely never know. Personally I think I'd fit better in Hufflepuff...after all, loyalty is a big deal to me. You cross me...well...DON'T cross me, let's put it that way.

Of course, after I seriously contemplated creating a second account and looking up a walk-through on how to get into Hufflepuff, I realized that yea, I might have Hufflepuff qualities, but I'd definitely Slytherin. I'm not ashamed. After all; Griffindor might have Harry Potter, but WE got MERLIN.

I don't think I'm competitive enough to be in Ravenclaw. I might be ambitious enough for Slytherin, but that's more of a self-improvement thing.

Don't mess with the our first-years or someone bigger is gonna curse you. ;D
Anyone else feel like while Slytherins are also smart, we focus more on self-improvement compared to Ravenclaws who are more competitive?

Huffles and Slytherins aren't that different. Hufflepuff is actually more compatible with Slytherin than Ravenclaw and Gryffindor, because their good will lets them overlook Slytherin's reputation. They also take care of their own, like Slytherin.

You're just a VERY ambitious Gryffindor (or maybe you're a REALLY brave Slytherin). Either way, you may be a hatstall.

There will be a number in the URL of the deviation. Take that number and place it like so, :thumb________: (it goes where the blank is). Then, put that code into a custom box, and you'll get the stamp to show up.
