Oh my god, I didn’t think I’d ship this ship again.
Dylan O’Brien for Teen Vogue
Stiles doesn’t set out to deceive anyone, but hunger and desperation have a way of smoothing the path. He tells himself he’s keeping the advertisement because it’s amusing, and he has precious little to make him smile now that it’s been eight months since his father left Philadelphia on the trail of an escaped convict, with no letters for the last six months, and money fast running out.
He’s examining the newspaper for job advertisements when he sees it on the facing page: a wry, single line: Bachelor farmer desirous of avoiding own cooking seeks helpmeet, with a name—D. Hale—and a post office box number. Stiles never plans to answer it; he knows full well that an advertisement posted in the Matrimonial News is meant for women, but then—this particular advertisement didn’t specify, did it?
OH MY GOD. MORE PLEASE.
Maybe I should call and ask where the demon tablet is
…It all makes sense now O.O
WHAT IF WHEN THEYRE OLDER THEY GET TAKEN BACK TO NARNIA AND BECOME THE FOUR FOUNDING MOTHERS AND FATHERS AND CHANGE THEIR NAMES AND HOGWARTS IS REALLY IN NARNIA WHICH IS WHY MUGGLES CANT SEE IT
BUT REALLY THINK ABOUT IT LIKE THEIR PERSONALITIES REALLY GO WITH THE HOUSES. PETER IS THE COURAGEOUS ONE. SUSAN IS THE SMART ONE. EDMUND TOTALLY BETRAYED THEM AT OE POINT. AND LUCY IS THE SMALL UNDERESTIMATED ONE WHO IS ACTUALLY AWESOME SOMETIMES.
"WHO IS REALLY AWESOME SOMETIMES" MAN WITHOUT LUCY THEY WOULD NEVER EVER HAVE GOTTEN TO NARNIA, SHE WAS THE ONE WHO FOUND OUT ABOUT IT FIRST
BECAUSE HUFFLEPUFFS ARE PARTICULARLY GOOD FINDERS
HUFFLEPUFFS ARE PARTICULARLY GOOD FINDERS
OKAY WAIT A SECOND
EDMUND IS NOT A SLYTHERIN SIMPLY BECAUSE HE “BETRAYED THEM AT ONE POINT”
He’s a Slytherin because he’s ambitious and cunning. He knows what he wants and he’s been offered a way to get it. (And PS: he betrayed them because his siblings were totally rotten to him, and then he stumbled into this land where a nice woman gave him things and told him he was special, like the whole Death Eater thing, which means only that he was doing what he thought was better than being yelled at all day by his family.)
Slytherins are clever, shrewd, ambitious, and they are loyal to what serves them best. Edmund is also clever, ambitious, and has that element of trickery and mischief about him trademark of Slytherins.
Sure, he screwed up. Not everyone’s perfect. He may have done something he wasn’t proud of, but here’s the thing:
He’s not proud of it. He’s ashamed of what he did.
He comes back to Aslan’s camp and he looks at them apologetically. His look says, I’m sorry. I’m sorry I put you in danger and I’m sorry I messed up.
He’s a brilliant, shrewd boy, and he checks himself and ends up fighting for the “good” side with the “good” Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, and Ravenclaw.
So no, Edmund is not a Slytherin because he betrayed his family.
He’s a Slytherin because he’s cunning, ambitious, loyal to his cause (but can change), resourceful, and he’s a self-preserver.

Now imagining Stiles being named after this artist. Like, no wonder he decided to go by Stiles. He’s just lucky no one asks about his middle name.
