My Slytherclaw Identity Crisis

slytherclaw

This week Pottermore is celebrating House Pride, a topic that at one point caused me to practically hyperventilate. Growing up as part of the Harry Potter generation meant that sorting ourselves was serious business. All my friends immediately knew to which houses they would belong and happily began collecting the corresponding house gear.

Except me.

You see, I always fancied myself being in Slytherin. Sure, it was the house with the bad reputation, but it’s also a house full of movers and shakers. Even though the books largely focused on the negative sides of ambition and determination, surely there were good Slytherins. My reasoning proved true later: Severus Snape, Regulus Black, and Horace Slughorn weren’t perfect, but they all did the right thing in the end. Then there’s Andromeda Tonks, born into the most pureblood-crazed family of all, who still followed her heart and married a muggleborn. I would be one of those good Slytherins that were rarely seen in the books.

Vampire Dating: The Crash Course

Vampire Dating - the crash course

Are you newly undead and on the prowl? Lonely in the life of eternal night and need somebody to love?

We’ve asked a few of our favorite vampires for their tried and true tips on how to get some lovin’ goin on when you’re a tanning salon away from death, and here’s what they told us…

A Handy Guide to Dean Winchester’s Cassette Tape Collection

A Handy Guide to Dean Winchester's Cassette Tape Collection

 

Sam: …I swear man; you gotta update your cassette tape collection.
Dean: Why?
Sam: Well for one they are cassette tapes, and twoβ€” {Pulls out a few cassette tapes} Black Sabbath? Motorhead? Metallica? It’s the greatest hits of mullet rock.
Dean: {Grabs a cassette from Sam and pops it in the player} House rules, Sammy. Driver picks the music, shotgun shuts his cake hole.
(source)

I know what you’re thinking. “Cassette tapes? Who even uses those anymore?” you might be asking yourself. “Why not get an iPod?” Look, iPods are the work of the devil, okay? Half of hell runs on Apple products… the half that isn’t a bureaucracy. We have it on good authority that a whole circle of hell is now dedicated to standing in queues while the demons in charge of torture alternate between playing solitaire on a Windows 2000 and inputting incorrect information onto an IBM 5150. Apologies, I digress. Modern torture techniques in perdition aside, we damn well know heaven, hell and purgatory couldn’t get Dean Winchester to dump his cassette tapes in exchange for a shiny new mp3 player. Or even a CD player. How does he even shop. I can’t even…

Right, right. Today’s post, we are going to present to you five key albums you should listen to. If you ever find yourself in the Impala, you’ll know what to reach for in the glove compartment (if you’re not reaching for the salt).
