The dating disasters of sirius black

(For me, it’s between Sirius Black and Oliver Wood), there is another, more real world question: what house is your ideal mate in?

My roommate, like many people, is looking for a Gryffindor.

It’s hard to think of a more loyal character than Snape, a Slytherin through and through.

Even a Slytherin’s ambition and resourcefulness might be a good match for our wit, provided they don’t take after the Dark Lord.

I’m afraid I can’t see a Hufflepuff with a Slytherin.

Just in case you need a refresher, here are the distinguishing characteristics of the houses: Gryffindor values bravery, daring, nerve, and chivalry.

Hufflepuff is all about hard work, dedication, patience, loyalty, and fair play. Slytherin favor ambition, cunning, and resourcefulness. It’s hard not to gravitate toward the Griffyndor’s if only because most of the characters we know best come from that house. However, it’s also possible that these witches and wizards wouldn’t like to sit still for long. I have a hunch that this house might pair best with one of their own.

From the Animagus, to the metamorphmagus, to the effects of polyjuice potion, characters slough off one identity for another with ease.

In no instance does a stronger connection between the exterior and the interior exist than in the characters of Sirius Black and Remus Lupin.

Sirius's Animagus form takes the shape of a huge black dog, but those who encounter him immediately associate him with the Grim, a folkloric harbinger of death, rather than as a stray or potential pet.

Although the dog's size and seeming hostility during Sirius's first encounter with Harry do not lend themselves to creating the image of a comforting pet, the association with death highlights Sirius's lack of judgment both prior to and during the events of the novels.

Ambition might make a Slytherin successful in work (but perhaps also in love).
