Gryffindors are like the ancient Celts: wild and fearless, casting aside their plaids and racing into battle naked, swinging their broadswords. Hufflepuffs are the Roman legions: loyal, disciplined, digging formal entrenchments at every night’s encampment, marching into battle with shields interlocked, short swords at the ready. The Celts are romantic and we all love them, but who wins the Empire?
Ravenclaws? They’re the ancient Egyptians, the ones with centuries of arcane knowledge and impressive technical skills. And Slytherins are the Greeks: reaching for greatness, creating a brief civilization of unparalleled brilliance, establishing the foundations of Western intellectual culture, then falling apart in petty wars and political struggles and mutual distrust. And the Roman Legions march over them, and all they have is their history. Hufflepuff rules the world!
People respect Ravenclaws, but nobody likes them. People like Hufflepuffs, but nobody respects them. Gryffindors are both liked and respected whether they deserve it or not, while Slytherins receive dislike and disrespect, whether they deserve it or not. No wonder so many of them joined the Dark Lord.
Haha--nice take on the houses! I don't think that people dislike Ravenclaws. I always saw it as the "safe" house. If the child of Slytherin of Gryffindor alums did not get sorted into her parents' house, Ravenclaw would always be the "acceptable" alternative!
Well, what did Hufflepuff contribute to the story? Slytherin, Ravenclaw and Gryffindor all had a role in the story, Hufflepuff just seemed to go along for the ride! They DESERVE all the bashing they get from fans! XD
