It's Time We Discussed How Dumbledore Totally Screwed Over The Slytherin House


Posted on

But while it's difficult to criticize the beloved series, THERE IS A MAJOR FAULT THAT WE NEED TO DISCUSS. And that's the house points at the end of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.

Quick recap: The house points are an accumulation of each of the four houses' good behavior, good deeds, and academic accomplishments awarded in point form over the course of a school year.

And at the end of The Sorcerer's Stone, Slytherin House had the most points. They were the best house that year, as shown by the points.

4th place: Gryffindor with 312 points

3rd place: Hufflepuff with 352 points

2nd place: Ravenclaw with 426 points

1st place: Slytherin with 472 points


Gryffindor House was more than 100 points behind Slytherin, and in last place. But Dumbledore took it upon himself to play major faves and reward Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Neville extra points, making Gryffindor the winner.

And while it's cool that Hermione, Ron, and Harry saved the day, they didn't deserve to win the House Cup.

If anything, they probs should've lost points for endangering not only themselves but basically everyone by putting themselves in extreme danger with a KNOWN MURDERER.

Should they have been acknowledged for "defeating" Voldy and keeping the school seemingly safe? Yeah, definitely. But not at the expense of the majority of Slytherin students who did nothing wrong and followed the rules.
