Always been curious...what does the Slytherin Common Room look like and what kind of parties does your House have?
It's actually a lot more green than silver which surprises a lot of people because I guess they expect it to be this dungeon-like thing. It's true, we are in the dungeons, but while it's not QUITE as cozy as Gryffindor's I think it's verging on the pinnacle of cozy for most of these folks.
What I wouldn't give for some big giant windows though, man.
They exist in the bedrooms but not in the common room for...some reason.
As far as the parties...
LOTS of alcohol. LOTS. None of that butter beer shite either, Firewhiskey and Vodka and...you know things that actually have alcohol in them. Usually Cissa gets into a fight with SOMEONE and it gets nearly x-rated because she's a whiney little...ANYWAY. The gillyweed is usually brought out to quell such fighting because Merlin knows, Rasputin can't be bothered to risk his rickety old bones to stop it and I'm fairly certain that any other professor is actually a bit squicked by just the corridor outside of our...lodgings, for lack of a better word.
Oh, and at least three people mistake me for my brother and try to get their grope on, as it were.
They have windows in the bedrooms? In a dungeon? You mean, like those artificial windows they have at the Ministry, which really aren't windows at all but magical illusions? What view do you have?
You don't sound as though you like it very much.
How do you know what the Gryffindor Common Room looks like?
X-Rated Narcissa? Oooooo...do tell!
What is the most insane thing that has happened at one of these parties?
Doesn't it irk you when people mistake you for your brother?
Yeup, just like that. The ones in my room look over the forest and you can sort of see the willow if you stand in the right place. It's kinda sad because I rather enjoy watching the willow take things out.
Eh, I don't. It's cold and even though I keep getting more blankets it always feels like I don't have enough. Besides, Sirius and James have this habit of sneaking in and playing tricks on Severus and somehow, without fail, I always get caught in the middle of it. There are days when I'd rather just be a Hufflepuff than have to put up with them.
How do I know what the Gryffindor Common Room looks like? Well when enough people mistake you for Sirius Black (usually people younger than the both of us who don't know any better), they tend to just hang back so you don't have to bother saying the password to get in.
Ugh...Cissa. She'll, usually, end up getting in a fight with one of the girls...Carmina most often and they'll rip and wrestle and tear and all the Slytherin boys that AREN'T related to her and are unawares of the wrath of Lucius Malfoy tend to sit there and drool and every so often try to get involved.
Most insane thing? Bella charmed my hair pink and then Cissa decided that it needed to be in a mohawk so for a few hours I had a bright pink mohawk while two of my cousins were stripping on a table and severus was hanging from the ceiling by who knows what.
Usually...yeah I hate it. There are occasions when it has its advantages. Getting into the Gryffindor Commonroom, for example. Though our respective fangirls around Hogwarts are really quite vicious to each other. They have yet to take it out on US, but damn...it's like watching people fight over who is the better beatle, Paul or John (personally I like Ringo, but apparently I'm weird so whatever.)
Ringo, eh? I think that's a very interesting bit of trivia. Why, pray tell?
And, just being curious, what's your favorite Beatles' song?
I don't know why, honestly. He just seemed the most consistantly quirky I think. And besides, his name is Ringo, how sweet is that?
I haven't heard that many, to be honest. I really like "Hello, Goodbye" and "Help", but in order to make a REAL decision, I'm sure I'd have to bond with Potter's father and listen to his records or something equally...not fun.
Have you ever wondered why I might be a "whiney, little bitch?" You and I are more alike than you could ever admit.
I didn't call you a whiney little bitch, I called you a whiney little anyway. Nails on a chalkboard is a more appropriate description of the sound of your voice but really I was trying to be polite.
And we're not alike in any manner.
You ran off with that freak of nature and pleased your lovely parents while I'm doing everything in my power to send my mother into her grave as early as possible.
That, alone, my dear is enough to separate us indefinitely.
When one's delightfully eccentric older sister and one's rebellious cousin and heir "disgrace" the family, well, a girl must do something to survive. Were I male, I would have more options available to me. As I am not, Lucius is a better option than death.

Re: Dear cousin,
Are you quite sure about that, honey?
Regulus - ever feel like you belong in a different house?
Eh, I know I do, but when you're eleven years old and your choices are Slytherin or get AK'd...well I decided that begging the hat to be sentenced to seven years of purgatory was much better than not being around at all.
Any and all of the stories you've heard about our pathetic excuse for a mother are entirely true. well...except for the one where she killed Sirius' pony when he was...er..eight (?)...that was mostly my fault.
Anyway, yes, since day one. But when you're not the heir your livelyhood tends to matter less in the eyes of Old Lady Black.
Have you ever messed with a fanigrl thinking you were Sirius?
Hahaha. Why of course.
And he generally pays for it later.

Regulus, I seem to have fallen helplessly in love with you. I am a good conversationalist and more than willing to talk/listen to you when not shagging you senseless. Might this be an acceptable arrangement for you?
Love and kisses,
As long as you keep me supplied with a plethera of cookies, I don't see why that arragement wouldn't be possible.

Re: Indecent Proposal
I can do that. Any requests for a particular kind of cookie? I also make an awesome chocolate cheesecake, if you're interested. So how's life in Slytherin? Any interesting occurrences lately?
Mmmm, peanut butter is the quickest and most effective way to my heart.
Eh, it's life. I think Severus is going to explode all over the place sometime soon though. Should be fun to watch. I should prolly sell tickets to that.

Re: Indecent Proposal
Well I am looking for the most expedient way into your heart. Not a terribly patient person, you see.
You absolutely should sell tickets. They'd sell well ... particularly in Gryffindor, I should think. Maybe you could steal the little Creevy kid's camera and take pictures for me? I'd hate to miss it.

hmm.. in addition to the tickets, you might want to sell plastic ponchos or umbrellas as well. I don't think people want bits of Snape stuck on them. As for cheesecake, do you prefer plain or with toppings?
oOh hhhhh Re eeeeeeeeem mmmmmu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuus ssss, look at what I figured out how to do.
All right, question. Why green?
