But I shall be good health to you nevertheless,
and filter and fibre your blood.
Failing to fetch me at first keep encouraged.
Missing me one place search another,
I stop somewhere waiting for you.”
~ Walt Whitman
So earlier I did a post on why, contrary to some people’s opinions, I don’t think Sirius should have been in Slytherin,. However, as I wrote that, I realized that, contrary to canon, Dumbledore would have actually made a fantastic Slytheri, both narratively and character-wise.
And thus, since Outis asked me to do this, I’m going to give explaining it a shot! (Mostly because I like to hear myself talk. Er, read myself write? Shut up, I’m not a Ravenclaw.)
Anywho, here it is! Why Dumbledore Should Have Been Slytherin’s Greatest Example to Us All aka My Dissertation on Dumbledore. I’ll try to keep it short, but let’s face it folks, I’m a wordy person who likes to talk. And I’m 6 feet tall. Short really isn’t my thing.
