Slytherin House by Whisperwings Slytherin House by Whisperwings
Tumblr'd here: [link]

I admit...this almost makes me wanna be a Slytherin...

This one is very different from the first two. I felt Slytherins in general would be more fond of order, hence the symmetry. And the simple color scheme isn't as bad as it seems, since you get color from the lake out the window. the lake is as much a part of the room's decor as the room itself :)

~Whisper



Edit: I feel the need to point out that these are out of my head, not based on the descriptions provided on Pottermore. Just in case people are wondering why I'm right on some counts and not on others :P

Edit 2: You guys, I am sooo overwhelmed by the positive response these have gotten! Thank you so so SO much~!! Also, I've gotten quite a few people asking if they can use these as a reference for their fanfics or own artwork, and the answer is YES! All i ask is that you be sure to credit me and if possible link back to these pieces. And tell me if you use them, because it makes me super happy knowing people have found my random designs useful :D

As a Slytherin, I love this to bits. Especially the symmetry and the underwater view. It'll really help me visualize when I make up random scenarios in my head (and when I read less than descriptive fanfiction). ^^

This is absolutely brilliant!! On pottermore I'm placed in Ravenclaw (though I feel that I'm more of a Slythenclaw), I would choose Slytherin if I had to though ^-^ I love the design you gave the dorm, I love the lake view, the lack of a need for a heater (awesome), the bookshelves lining the entire balcony and everything else. Great job :)

Thank so much, love! i'm so glad you like it!! And yeah, Pottermore isn't entirely accurate, it never would be... and I feel like 5 questions isn't nearly enough! there's this: www.helloquizzy.com/tests/the-… Where they put together all the possible Pottermore questions and take into account where you want to be placed, if you just wanna take it for fun XD

You're a great artist and a creative story writer (with your comic strips at least). The only completely accurate Hogwarts house sorter is the sorting hat himse... itself :)

I'm a Ravenclaw, but with a view from the bed like that, makes me want to be in Slytherin! :D I also prefer things being in order. Perhaps there lives a little Umbridge in me. :O

I know that feeling! Though blech, I doubt you have an ounce of Umbridge in you. I imagine Hermione to like things being in order to, she color coded her notes and such after all :)

WOW this is just WOW! This is amzing! Do you think i could build a model based off of these designs if i credit you and give a link to the original designs. I've been wanting to build a model of the houses for a while but im not good at creating architecture and when i found these designs i could just picture it in my mind and it seemed like it would look so cool and be so much fun to make. I understand if you say no though.

Thank you so much!! And yeah, I was hoping for more of a look at the castle and what it looked like...though at the same time I can understand why they didn't add such things. The moment people have a picture, then their imagination is immediately limited, sadly...

Yeah. And then there are the movies that show quite a lot and dont leave much left to think about. Still, this is a very good design.

I always saw the movies as just being an interpretation of the story & locations. I mean, things happen differently in the books than in the movies, so what we see in the movies isn't exactly how it must look in the world portrayed in the books. For instance, I don't see Harry Potter as being identical to Daniel Radcliffe, or any of the characters as necessarily resembling their actors.
Anyway, my point is, there is still room for imagination and creativity.

:iconwatchingtimepass:
WatchingTimePass Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Yes, exactly! I mean, for the most part, Hogwarts in the movies is like I imagined it. The castle look itself and the corridors and Great Hall, yes, the commons rooms, no though.
I agree. I still imagine Harry Potter slightly taller, messy-haired, and green-eyed. Same with James and Lily, their actors were older, so everyone imagines them older. I still see them as 21 year olds and James almost identical to Harry.
Leave it to creativity!
