There was a boy, and he was brave and fierce; everything the House of Gryffindor stood for. “You would be good at fire charms.”
“The Houses correspond to elements, Potter. Gryffindor’s fire. Slytherin’s water. Ravenclaw’s air, Hufflepuff’s earth.”
There was another boy, and he was tough and cunning; he should have been everything Slytherin was. But he suffered, and lost people he loved. He grew cold and hard and brittle – like ice. “You want to come to Hogsmeade with us Saturday?”
“Ridiculous. None of you want a Death Eater around.”
“But – ”
“And I don’t want to be around you.”
The two boys had always sparked against each other. The fire boy saw that the ice boy was not all he had been, and he reached out.
His fiery heart melted the ice into true water.
Of course, they were opposites, and remained so – “If Weasley wears orange, our honeymoon will be cancelled for my murder trial.”
“If your dad wears funeral black, I’ll – ”
But Slytherin took its proper place among the four, “What if I’m in Slytherin?”
“What if you are? Slytherins rule the world.”
“With the Gryffindors, of course.”
And they lived happily ever after.
