The Way To Greatness


Notes

Ambitious, Cunning, Determined, Resourceful.

We aren't as focused on pureblood status as everyone likes to think - if you're in our house, regardless of blood status - you're one of us. We look out for our own. We help each other succeed, and encourage each other's ambitions.

We're just as clever as Ravenclaws, We're just as brave as Gryffindors, and we're just as loyal as Hufflepuffs. We know who we are, and we don't apologise for it. Welcome to our family. *full description in comments*

@Thalita Alves Wow, thank you so much! I love Hufflepuff's - a lot of people place me in Hufflepuff, actually, and I think it is THE most underrated house which annoys me greatly! I'm actually working on a Hufflepuff playlist as we speak but, man, it is so hard! Thanks again for your comment! xxx

This is my, what, tenth time listening to this playlist? I love it. You definitely have to know yourself as a Slytherin to make a playlist such as this one. I played it at a house party I had yesterday and the people loved it. I applaud you @BewitchedByNight

@burningshroud Your 10th time!? Wow wow wow - that, my friend, is dedication and I'm so super dooper over-the-moon that you've not only listened to it so many times but also played it for other people! And these people liked it too!?!? Geez, you're gonna give me a big head! On Pottermore I got sorted into Slytherin...twice! And it took a while for me to get used to the idea. But then I looked past all the clichés associated with them, and I began to fall deeper and deeper in love with the idea of being a Slytherin :) So I'm very glad that you recognise and appreciate that side of me! I accept your applause wholeheartedly and throw it right back at you for being so wonderful! xxx

This playlist is not only fantastic but is also truly reflective of Slytherin house. I can't imagine how much time and effort was put into this. There's honestly like a mental applause going on in my head for every song, annotation, the placement in the list, everything is just fab and you're fab. Thank you for making this. *hugs* (you can tell I'm a hufflepuff but yeah you're awesome)

@hafsa.k Holy hell, I hardly know how to reply to this! I feel like the Grinch when his heart grew 3 times it's size!!! I'm so so so super happy that you found this playlist reflective of Slytherin house, because that was literally my only goal - and I'm so glad you like the placement and annotations cause sometimes my choices/taste can kinda seem like they come out of nowhere, so it's just so honestly happy-making that someone out there in the big wide world understands me, haha. I'm so fab? More like YOU'RE so fab!!! I can totally tell you're a hufflepuff cause I come across as a hufflepuff a lot of the time, but most people say I'm an eccentric ravenclaw...which I find very complimentary, actually! Thank you so much again for leaving such a wonderful comment - it really truly made my week much more pleasant...and it gave me more confidence to do the other houses as well! Thanks again, lovely - and be sure to tell me if you ever make a playlist and I'll be sure to listen! xxx

I can't believe you uploaded this just now. I've been on 8tracks for days listening to Slytherin playlists, and just as I started to venture into other themed playlists, you post this. It's absolutely brilliant by the way. The concept, writing and music! xx

@Miss Lilith Oh wow - I don't believe I've gotten a more lovely, enjoyable to read comment in all my life! This sense of destiny continues, as I found myself in the same situation as you, funnily enough - I was rifling through 8tracks to the point where if it was music and it could be related to Slytherin, I felt like I'd heard it. But I still hadn't found any playlists that I felt explored almost all the different aspects of Slytherin/s. So I thought...well, I might as well make my own playlist, and if people enjoy it, so be it! And I really am so glad you enjoyed it! It sometimes feels like the way we relate to things (in this instance, music) or our tastes in things are bizarre. Not that there's anything wrong with bizarre - but it's nice to know one's not as alone as might have previously been thought. Thanks again for the comment! xx

@BewitchedByNight I completely agree with you and I do really love how your playlist is like a sort of journey on it's own. I find if something makes you happy or gives you some insight into your own person (like exploring the Slytherin house) you should never give it up. I'm proud to be a Slytherin and I'm extra proud that people think that's sometimes bizarre. Thanks so much for your reply! xx

Ambitious. Cunning. Determined. Resourceful.

We stick together.

We aren't as focused on pureblood status as everyone likes to think - if you're in our house, regardless of blood status - you're one of us. We look out for our own. Even if you're a little bit different from everyone else - like Mallory Íonmaith who's in third year - if anyone crosses her, you can bet there will be at least eight people to support our fellow Slytherin. We help each other succeed, and encourage each other's ambitions. We might use underhanded ways to get there, but we will succeed because we were born to win.

Elegant stoicism is our forte, but you'll find that we're as warm and as nice as anyone else to those who deserve it.

Our Common Room is in the dungeons, but don't worry, it's not dark or dank or dirty - it's only enchanted to look that way to intruders. We're a fan of aesthetics, us Slytherins, and our Common Room is even more indulgent and beautiful than you'd expect...green silk and dark velvet - you get the picture.

As for our intimidating nature, we're not as wicked as rumours say. We don't dispel a lot of those rumours because, well, who doesn't like to be seen as a little intimidating? We get along with everyone quite well, even most of the Gryffindors - although usually there's always a bunch of them who are as high and mighty as everyone seems to think we are, who hate us on sight. Let's just say we like to make their lives a bit more interesting with a prank or two.

We're just as clever as Ravenclaws, We're just as brave as Gryffindors, and we're just as loyal as Hufflepuffs. We know who we are, and we don't apologise for it. Welcome to our family.
