Well, I suppose Slytherins do have a certain respect for books as well… you can keep your pristine hardcovers, you Ravenclaw you. <3
I need Slytherins defending Hufflepuffs at the Battle of Hogwarts, something like this:
“What we’ve got here?” said the Death Eater. He pointed his wand at the tiny Hufflepuff in front of him, but as he was about to cast the spell, another student appeared: a Slytherin.
“Expelliarmus!” The Death Eater blanched. “You know who he is?”
"He’s a Hufflepuff," replied the Slytherin student, “‘loyal till the end.’. He would die for me.”
The Hufflepuff stared at him with confusion as the Slytherin helped him up. The only explanation he received was a soft: “I’d die for you too, mate.”
They shook hands and with those words, they ran after the ones who sought to destroy their home.
