Hogwarts RPG Name:
Arrick Melliv
First Year

It's been ages since I've read the last book, but one point from it (if I remember it correctly at all) is that while there were some students from Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff and Gryffindor that stayed for the finale, ALL of Slytherin House left. It's bugged me for ages now and seems like the biggest blow against the argument that 'Slytherin House isn't bad' that Rowling has been insisting from start to finish. If they weren't bad, why didn't any of them stay to fight (that we know of)?

I've always felt the Slytherins were slighted somehow. Maybe it's Harry's POV narration, maybe it's how Rowling ties everything together, but I keep waiting for examples of good Slytherins and all I seem to find are Slytherin matyrs.
