    The Serpents' Lair

    Welcome to the Serpents' Lair, where you can find all of the information you could ever want to know about Slytherin.

    This thread includes a history of the house along with comments and memories from it's current members.


    Or perhaps in Slytherin
    You'll make your real friends
    Those cunning folk use any means
    To achieve their ends.

    Aaaaah Slytherin.

    Slytherin is just a whirlwind. It really is, I've been in this house for quite a long time. I think I started here in June of last year. Everyone from Slytherin is just great, we're all just a bunch of weirdo's at times and we're quite the cunning little people.

    We have quite a few secrets hidden within our dungeons. Our Head of House at the moment is MithrilQuill and our Prefect is Lycanthropist. They are very friendly and so are all the Slyths.

    Our house mascot is Tiramisu the Fox. Whenever theres a special occasion tiramisu is always handed out it's a special tradtion. We also tend to be very spammy in our common room at times. In the common room you can talk about basically whatever you feel like. Just dont spam in it. We also have Christmas parties and just tend to have slushie fests at random moments. The Conga line is also quite popular around Slytherin.

    We're really just a fun bunch of people and are very welcoming to all people.

    Now the story of how I gopt sorted into Slytherin, it's quite an experience. Well, like everyone else I took he sorting quiz and blah blah blah. Did I really expect to be in Slytherin? No. It was the definatly not my first choice. I wanted to be either a Ravenclaw or Gryffindor. When I saw that I was a Slyth I really did not know what to think. I was a bit dissapointed actually but how wrong I was. Now that I look back to it wouldn't rather be in any other house. I have made SOOOO many great friends in Slytherin. We really do have the most fun, we're a bunch of quite cunning and sneaky group of people. *hee hee* Well we like top have our jokes...

    Roop wasn't kidding when she said that Slytherin is a whirlwind. We have so much going on every day that it can look quite overwhelming to someone who is signing on to the Slytherin forums! My suggestion is to (once you mingle around here and get to know how things work) hit up the common room. Introduce yourself and you will be BLOWN AWAY on how many people will talk to you! If you bring chocolate, that will up your chances by a good 20 percent.

    My Slytherin beginnings... I was sorted on 7-15-06. I was informed about my sorting by my cousin who happens to be a Hufflepuff. Needless to say she was mortified and, for a brief period, so was I. Now I am known as the Slytherin Mom. (I've accepted my fate.)

    We're here to help.

    Oh and ask one of us where the Conga is. Its a good place to have lots of fun with your Slyth family... Just keep Elle away from the tree.

    First and foremonst, I'm going to start off by saying that all the prejudiceness about the House of Salazar Slytherin is COMPLETLY UNTRUE! Here in the color green, we do not hate Gryffindors, Ravenclaws or Hufflepuffs, nor do we try to get points taken away from them in any way.

    I was entirly shocked when I saw the green Slytherin below my name, but now that I've accepted it and thought about it, it's the only house that makes sense for me! It's perfect.

    Each house has it's own mascot, and funny/stupid/weird things that only members of that house will understand. For example: The Mangarro banner in my signature (now my avatar), what Nikki said about keeping Elle away from trees, and Abbi being nicknamed the grinch, even though, she is the farthest thing from that! (all of this, by the way, originated in the Conga). We all have a great time being in Slytherin, and even though were vastly outnumbered (at least I think we are), we try to put up a strong fight for the house cup!

    I belive this was said before, but I'll say it again anyways, Slytherins have Tirimisu the Fox as our mascot, but don't forget the snake! Every other house has one too Ravenclaws are the Turnips, Gryffindors have a toaster and Hufflepuffs are known as the Badgers! I'm not sure where the Fox came from, but Tirimisu (which I've been dying to try ever since being on here) is Jason Isaics (Lucious Malfoy)'s favorite dessert sooo......yea!

    I promise, everyone in Slytherin will be a great friend! Our Easter party in the Conga room will get going soon, so hurry up and ask one of us for the link! CONGA CONGA CONGA!

    Hi, to let you know, I'm Abbi!

    Anyways, like everyone has said so far, Slytherin ROCKS! We have soooooo much fun and NO ONE is judgemental. Everyone is really nice and if you're sad, you're garanteed to have 10 PM's from everyone asking if you're okay, do you want to talk, etc etc.

    Alot of you will be wondering what "The Conga" is. Last Christmas we were having a great time in our CR (Common Room - I'll put down below our lingo) spamming and party-ing when we realised that we needed somewhere to party without getting in trouble for spamming. So I went and created a website for us to party on and now we go crazy! (Our last party was around 250 posts in about 4 days!)

    We also have on "the conga" a bunch of other things and we have a plotting table to talk challenges, the Quidditch challenge, etc. Basically, it's a site to have fun and spam as much as you like and not get in trouble.

    Regarding our Common Room, don't be scared to post. There is NO WAY anyone can be as worse as me (let's say I was completley random) when introducing themselves and all us Slytherins love having newbies!!! If you feel too shy at all, PM one of us and we'll introduce you!

    If you ever have questions, don't hesistate to us one of us via PM or the Common Room. If we can't answer, we'll refer you to the best person who can! And if you want to ask questions un-related to MNFF, we're here to help! I tend to be online practically every day so I'm always happy to answer them! Need a banner? Plenty of us. Need a beta or opinions? No better people to ask!

    Like everyone has said, we're a really nice bunch and we love to have fun! Everyone is really nice and I don't think you could ever meet such a nicer bunch of people! Well, maybe you could in the other houses, I don't know, but still! It's my point!

    So yeah, like Roop (nysuperstarz) said, it's really the best expirience here. Most of you are probably in shock that you're in Slytherin, but to be very honest, it's the best!

    Abbi

    EDIT: Okay, so I kinda forgot our lingo! Heh, whoops!

    OMS - Oh My Salazar
    Mangaroos - Kangaroo's in which at our Christmas party Cassie (POTCgirl1337) accidently spelt as "Mangaroo".
    Tiramisu - Our food mascot
    The fox - Our other animal mascot; his name is Tiramisu!
    The "Slushies" - the mascot drinks (we have every flavour, including the soon-to-be released Character-flavour drinks; One of the girl's ideas!)
    Pooky - Bellatrix Lestrange's house-elf we stole for our party (beware, she likes her slushies!)
    Skippy & Gippy - two of our Mangaroos that love to hang out at our parties! (by the way, they are dating)
    Joey - Cassie's Mangaroo that she tends to dance with a lot at the Conga
    Conga - Our website

    hem hem, its Skippy and Joey, or is there a Gippy too? I forget!

    I'm adding to the other ones, I know I already posted before, not a problem, is it? Just about the suprisingness of being sorted into Slytherin, most of us, I think were suprised to see Slytherin pop up under our name, but after you here for a week or two, you realize that you really a a Slyth at heart! That's what happened to me at least, this place is now my home away from home!

    And you should never be bored, it's true that we, of everyone, go through the most common rooms! And our Conga adds on to that! So again, I hope you enjoy being in Slytherin!

    Wow, this is a nice thread!!

    I'm so jealous!

    If I had the Check-In-Desk when I first came here, then I think I would have gotten involved much sooner.

    Hello, I'm Marsha. I'm still kinda new to this, but I do my best cause I love my house. I came her a few months back, FEB 2007. But I didn't start participating until 2 months later after I found out that I needed to be sorted in order to post to a thread.



    But hey. I was a little shy, so I asked a Mod, who was kind enough to get me going. So here I am!!

    It only shows that when you get involved, you can break your shyness and have so much fun around here.

    So if you have any questions, don't be afraid to ask. You never know what you'll find out until you speak up.

    Hey, this is Will. I am one of the 4 guys who (semi)regularly post on the Slytherin threads.

    there's not much to say about being in Slytherin apart from saying that we are weird and random to an extent that other MNFF Beta Board users cannot compare to.

    also, we have many talented bannermaker's, beta's, writers, and just people to talk to. so if you have a problem, or something exciting happened to you, or if you just need to get a rant out of your system, come to us. we offer sympathy, encouragement, *huggles* (not me personally), *squees* (see previous note), *happy mist* (ditto), and a good sense of humor or sarcasm (now THAT, I do offer). we're also happy to answer any questions you may have about the forums, Mugglenet itself, writing in general, Snape's innocence (ask cmwinters about that. she obsesses. and has an extremely long and detailed list of why he is innocent. it is wise to not argue with her about it), or just how to deal with life's problems (not so sure we'll be of much help with this one, but we can try).

    hmm, I've just realized that I sound like a therapy advertisement, so I'll shut up now.

    anyway, Slytherin is a great House, and I hope you enjoy your stay with us (now I sound like a hotel commercial... will the crappy advertisements never cease?!)

    See you around,

    The resident sarcastic, emo, procrastinating, mostly introverted, bannering, slightly geeky, writing, music-dependent, argumentative vampire genius of Slytherin who's actually not that bad once you get to know him,

    Hey,

    So because I feel like my fellow Slyths may have made you wary of joining our lovely household, I'd like to introduce myself. My name is Laurena (or Laur, if you so prefer) and I've been a loveable Slyth since the end of February.

    As random and crazy as we may appear, Slytherins are quite warm and welcoming. We're a close-knit group of people who love to get new members. Everyone's already told you to post in the Common Room, to say 'hi' in our Introduction thread, to join up in the Conga festivities, to drabble/banner in our Snake Pit, but they haven't told you what being a Slyth is all about, so maybe I should.

    Contrary to what JKR makes us out to be, the MNFF Slyths are absolutely loveable. Just as every other house, we've got our fangirls, who drool over the hot Harry Potter men (including Draco, Harry, Sirius, James and *shudders* Snape). We've got our theorists, who share their thoughts on what will (and won't!) happen in Book 7. We've got shippers (a ship is a particular romantic pairing that you happen to support strongly, whether canon (Hermione/Ron and Harry/Ginny) or fanon (Draco/Hermione, Draco/Ginny, Snape/Mrs. Weasley *is joking*).

    Our house isn't a very intricate system to decipher. MithrilQuill is our Head of House, and a damn good one at that. She keeps us from spamming too much, breaking house rules, and from not having no fun (double negative!!) She keeps us informed and helps us in any way possible-- nothing short of amazing. And we also have our lovely prefect *coughformerlyofGryffindorcough* Kasey/hogwartsduchess. She's a newbie in the Slytherin house, but has jumped in and participated all the same, and we already love her for it. And then you have the ridiculously small number of active Slytherins.

    Alas, (Ear wax!) I've got to go. But, as everyone else has said, please don't be afraid to join in and say hello! And if you need a helping hand, feel free to message me

    Cheers!
    (: Laur
