Summary: There is a thin line between love and hate. There is an even thinner line between Gryffindor and Slytherin; the willingness to do anything to achieve their goals. Gryffindors cannot see the big picture, and if they come to a decision to choose between the greater good and their loved ones or himself, they would sacrifice the world for their friends.
Slytherins are different. We know the value of sacrifice, but there is something else that separates us from those who wear red and gold. We will fight as hard as we can, in any way possible, even if it may be seen as unjustified or morally wrong. Gryffindors let their consciences get in the way of the greater goal. We don’t, but no one believes that we can fight for the right cause. They remember us as the evil, idiotic, or simply power hungry. They don’t remember us for what we are; who we are. We’re here to change that.
They will remember us, and they will remember us as those who fought all prejudice and cruelty simply because were were done with it. They will remember us, and the next time they think of a phoenix rising from the ashes they will remember this phrase:
Remember the Slytherins.

I will remember the Sltherins :)
Author's Response: You always should. They sneak up on you like a silent assassin . . . I should know. I am one of them. (MWA-HA-HA-HA) ;)
Thanks for the review!
I will remember the Slytherins. Because Slytherins don't give in.
What a dramatic (in a good way) way to start a fic. I like it, so much.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review! Yeah . . .it *was* kind of dramatic, but I needed an 'eye catcher'. I guess it worked. Keep reading! :)
