All the different ways you can be a Slytherin

你成为斯莱特林的各种方法

 

Slytherin is the house renowned for its ambition and resourcefulness – though it has an unfortunate reputation for producing Dark wizards too. Yet these aren’t the only things that make a Slytherin. We look at other ways you can belong to this house…

斯莱特林学院以其雄心壮志和足智多谋而闻名——尽管它也有培养黑巫师的坏名声。然而,这些并不是造就斯莱特林的唯一要素。我们会从其他方面考虑你是否属于这个家…

 

You can put others before yourself and belong in Slytherin

你可以把别人放在第一位,属于斯莱特林的人

 

Those who belong to Slytherin are well known for their skills of self-preservation and using cunning techniques to get exactly what they want. So, you would probably believe that all Slytherins just want to look out for number one. However, that is a massive stereotype. There are plenty of Slytherins who have gone above and beyond – one that immediately springs to mind is Leta Lestrange. At the end of Crimes of Grindelwald, Leta realised that Newt and his brother Theseus were in peril and decided to rescue them. She pretended to join Grindelwald, but it was just a ruse. Instead, she destroyed his skull hookah to cause a distraction and give them both enough time to escape. Leta ended up paying a heavy price for this when she was swallowed by the flames. Though she had been known for her self-serving attitude, she ultimately sacrificed herself to save those she loved from certain death. She certainly proved that being a Slytherin doesn’t automatically mean you are selfish.

那些属于斯莱特林的人以善于自我保护和使用狡猾的技巧来得到他们想要的东西而闻名。所以,你可能会相信所有的斯莱特林都只想为自己着想。然而,这是一个巨大的刻板印象。斯莱特林中有很多人已经超越了莱塔·莱斯特兰奇。在《格林德沃之罪》的结尾,蕾塔意识到纽特和他的兄弟忒修斯处于危险之中,她决定拯救他们。她假装加入格林德沃,但那只是个诡计。相反,她毁了他的头骨水烟管来分散他们的注意力,给他们俩足够的时间逃跑。当莉塔被火焰吞噬时,她为此付出了沉重的代价。尽管她以自私自利的态度著称,但她最终还是牺牲了自己,把她所爱的人从死亡中拯救出来。她确实证明了,作为斯莱特林的一员,并不一定意味着你是自私的。

 

Ambition doesn’t always mean seeking power when you’re a Slytherin

当你是斯莱特林时,野心并不总是意味着追求权力

 

Slytherins have a reputation for their ambition being rooted in seeking as much power and influence as possible. You can understand why, when former students included witches and wizards like Lucius Malfoy, Dolores Umbridge and the one who was after control of the entire wizarding world… Lord Voldemort. Nevertheless, there are those whose ambition manifests itself in a different way. Scorpius Malfoy was one such Slytherin. His ambitions were smaller and lot of his were rooted in doing the best he could academically and expanding his magical knowledge. Who can forget just how thrilled he was to come across Hermione Granger’s very impressive book collection? He demonstrated that not all Slytherins are driven by the same thing and proved that just because his goals appeared to be smaller, it didn’t make them any less worthy or important.

斯莱特林以追求尽可能多的权力和影响力而闻名。你可以理解为什么,因为以前的学生中有卢修斯·马尔福、多洛雷斯·乌姆里奇和想要控制整个魔法世界的伏地魔这样的巫师。然而,也有一些人的抱负以不同的方式表现出来。天蝎座马尔福就是这样一个斯莱特林。他的雄心没有那么大,他的很多目标都是在学术上尽力做到最好,并扩大他的魔法知识。谁能忘记当他偶然发现赫敏·格兰杰那令人印象深刻的藏书时是多么激动?他证明了并非所有斯莱特林的学生都被同样的事情所驱使,并证明了仅仅因为他的目标看起来更小,并不会降低这些目标的价值或重要性。

 

You don’t always have to have a hard exterior to be a Slytherin

作为一个斯莱特林学生,你不必总是有一副强硬的外表

 

Haughty, regal, snobby, high-maintenance – these are just some of the rather unflattering assumptions people make about the members of this house. While Draco Malfoy was someone who lived up to this image of what Slytherins are like (he certainly liked to sneer at others), there are plenty who didn’t have quite such a hard exterior – you could hardly call Horace Slughorn unfriendly. Yes, he had his Slug Club and like to surround himself with people who he could benefit from, but he wasn’t overtly mean or cruel. In fact, he was often rather jovial and very full of compliments for those he thought deserved them. And he wasn’t the only pleasant Slytherin to spring to mind. There was also Andromeda Tonks, Scorpius Malfoy and Albus Potter (when he was in a good mood) to name a few. It just goes to show that you don’t have to be cold just because you belong to Slytherin.

傲慢,高贵,势利,难伺候这些都是人们对这所房子里的人的一些不讨人喜欢的假设。虽然德拉科·马尔福符合斯莱特林的这种形象(他当然喜欢嘲笑别人),但还有很多人的外表都不像霍勒斯·斯拉格霍恩那样冷酷无情。是的,他有自己的“鼻涕虫俱乐部”,喜欢和能让他受益的人在一起,但他没有明显的刻薄或残忍。事实上,对于那些他认为值得赞美的人,他总是很高兴,而且总是充满赞美之词。他并不是斯莱特林中唯一一个讨人喜欢的人。还有安德洛米达·唐克斯、天蝎座·马尔福和阿不思·波特(他心情好的时候)。这恰恰表明,你不必仅仅因为属于斯莱特林就冷漠。

 

Love can be your driving motivation and you can be a Slytherin

爱可以成为你的动力,你也可以成为斯莱特林的一员

 

Andromeda Tonks was a Slytherin whose primary incentive in life seemed to be love. She gave up her entire family because of her love for Ted Tonks. There is no doubt that she deeply cared for her daughter Nymphadora – she even became an ally of the Order of the Phoenix because of it. She was also devoted to her grandson Teddy, who she ended up raising single-handedly after Tonks and Remus both died in the Battle of Hogwarts. For Andromeda, love came before ambition or power, and she demonstrated how that wasn’t incompatible with being a Slytherin. And if we are talking about love, we should also give a nod to her sister Narcissa. While she wasn’t a good person – what with her support of Voldemort and highly unpleasant views – she was devoted to her son and valued that above all else. She even defied Voldemort in the Battle of Hogwarts, when she lied and told him that Harry was dead so she could get back to the castle to find Draco. Her desire to do this wasn’t noble, but it was because of love. So as much as some of them may try to hide it, Slytherins do have big hearts after all.

安德洛米达·唐克斯是斯莱特林的学生,她生活中的主要动力似乎是爱情。她放弃了整个家庭就因为她爱泰德·唐克斯。毫无疑问,她非常关心自己的女儿尼法朵拉,甚至因此成为凤凰社的盟友。她也很爱她的孙子泰迪,唐克斯和莱姆斯都死于霍格沃茨的战斗后,她独自抚养了他。对安德洛墨达来说,爱情比野心和权力更重要,她证明了这与作为斯莱特林的学生是不相容的。如果我们在谈论爱情,我们也应该向她的妹妹纳西莎点头。虽然她不是一个好人,但由于她支持伏地魔和一些非常令人不快的观点,她对儿子倾注了全部心血,并把这一点看得比其他一切都重要。她甚至在霍格沃茨战役中公然反抗伏地魔,谎称哈利已经死了,这样她就可以回到城堡去找德拉科。虽然她的愿望并不高尚,但这是出于爱。所以,尽管有些人可能会试图隐藏这一点,斯莱特林的人毕竟有宽大的胸怀。

 

You don’t have to be brimming with confidence to be a Slytherin

要成为斯莱特林的学生,你不需要充满自信

 

If Cursed Child taught us anything, it is that you shouldn’t get caught up believing that all Slytherins are extremely self-assured. Albus Potter and Scorpius Malfoy were two wizards that didn’t always feel confident about their place in the world. Scorpius’s self-esteem wasn’t particularly high – and it probably had a lot to do with the false rumours about him being the son of Voldemort. Albus Potter felt like an outsider as the only Slytherin in a family full of Gryffindors, that clearly dented his confidence. And even though Draco Malfoy seemed to have a lot of swagger during his time at Hogwarts, he still struggled with insecurity – especially after he found himself in over his head with the Death Eaters. So, while a lot of Slytherin folk might seem to be very self-possessed, inside they could well be struggling – but that doesn’t mean they don’t belong in the serpent house.

如果被诅咒的孩子教会了我们什么,那就是你不应该相信所有的斯莱特林都非常自信。阿不思·波特和斯科皮乌斯·马尔福是两个对自己在世界上的地位并不自信的巫师。天蝎座的自尊心不是特别高,这可能与他是伏地魔之子的谣言有很大关系。阿不思·波特觉得自己像个外人,在一个格兰芬多的大家庭里,他是唯一一个斯莱特林的人,这显然削弱了他的信心。尽管德拉科·马尔福在霍格沃茨的时候似乎很狂妄自大,但他仍然有不安全感,尤其是在他发现自己被食死徒压得喘不过气来之后。所以,虽然很多斯莱特林的人看起来都很镇静,但他们的内心可能很挣扎,但这并不意味着他们不属于蛇院。

 

You can be incredibly brave and be a Slytherin

你可以非常勇敢地成为斯莱特林的一员

 

Bravery and chivalry are the most recognised traits when it comes to Gryffindor – though they don’t have the monopoly on courage. There have been many Slytherins who have also demonstrated these characteristics. Regulus Black and Severus Snape are two perfect examples. Both of these men were complex and had made poor decisions earlier in life – they had been members of Lord Voldemort’s Death Eaters after all. Yet, both had been incredibly daring and turned against their former leader, risking their lives to do the right thing. Whether it was Regulus stealing Slytherin’s locket – with the intention of destroying the Horcrux and defeating the Dark Lord, or Snape becoming a spy for Dumbledore which placed him in constant danger, there is no way you could call either one of them cowards. And we reckon that there would be plenty of other Slytherins willing to step up to the plate too.

勇敢和骑士精神是格兰芬多最受认可的特质,尽管勇气并不是他们的专利。有许多斯莱特林学生也表现出了这些特点。雷古勒斯·布莱克和西弗勒斯·斯内普就是两个完美的例子。这两个男人都很复杂,在生命的早期都做过错误的决定,毕竟他们是伏地魔的食死徒成员。然而,两人都非常大胆,都背叛了他们的前任领导人,冒着生命危险去做正确的事情。无论是雷古勒斯为了摧毁魂器打败黑魔王而偷了斯莱特林的挂坠盒,还是斯内普成为邓布利多的间谍,使他经常处于危险之中,你都不能说他们俩是懦夫。我们估计还有很多斯莱特林的学生也愿意站出来。
