The making of the houses crests → Slytherin
The art team tried out a number of different snakes for the Slytherin crest, as they wanted to ensure the one they used didn’t resemble a particular type of serpent (such as a boa or a cobra). The coil of the tail was another focal point as the artists wanted the snake to look natural, but not inactive. The team tried a variety of green snakes within the crest – the pattern of the skin was changed a number of times to try and achieve the right effect. For example, in the third version you can see a diamond pattern (such as an adder would have). In the end, because they wanted to stay true to the house colours of green and silver, the team set to work designing a snake that looked like it had been created by a silversmith. They felt this brought the whole crest to life, especially when combined with the green ripples in the background, designed to accentuate the water element.Some of the Pottermore Slytherin community have already noticed that theirs is the only animal looking to the left, while the other house crests have animals looking to the right. This was a decision that came about during the final stages of design, when the crests were all placed together.
I think I’ve been stripped of my Slytherin status. :( One quiz said I was equal parts Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin, another said I was Gryffindor, and then my new Pottermore account put me into Ravenclaw. And my wand was unyielding! Unyielding! Sigh. At least it was still dragon heartstring.
It was a nice two years of being badass while it lasted. At least I’m still intelligent.
SLYTHERIN WINS THE INAUGURAL HOUSE CUP*.
WIN WIN SLYTHERIN!
*take that Dumbledore!
Yes, THANK YOU! So many people go “Shut up, you’re not actually a ____ because JK said you’re a ____ and she created the series so THERE” but that actually makes…no sense. Like at all.
But I understand how I could be Slytherin. If I were sorted at 11 I would definitely have been Ravenclaw, though.
Well. Not Ravenclaw, then. Bit disappointed, but not too surprised given the nature of the questions…and I like Slytherin. :D
Ah, I’m so excited!
…and of course, Pottermore crashes again.
I think I’m going to be in Ravenclaw. Let’s see how this goes.
AAAAHHHHH AAAAHHHHH AAHHHHHHHHHH I KNEW SHERLOCK WAS A RAVENCLAW
Though tbh, I would have liked him better in Slytherin…
