5 Things About Kinky Slytherin

Slytherin Will Win - Harry Potter banner

  1. Slytherin House, of course, loves serpents. It is hilarious for you to throw your pet grass snake at us during Care of Magical Creatures. With our finely-developed sense of humor, we will respond by playfully filling your bedwith black mambas.
  2. Sure, many of us are Death Eaters. But that mostly just means that we’d be glad to have lunch with Death, the enchanting character from the Terry Pratchett Discworld books.
  3. Social Justice Slytherin have ended our use of the hateful and inappropriate slur “Mudblood”. Now, if we think you have some sort of mud inside of you, we will simply turn you to clay, so that the term becomes descriptive, not pejorative.
  4. Don’t ask why we have a picture of Hot Silver Fox Severus Snape pinned up in our locker. It’s for, um, inspiration because of his heroism and a grateful remembrance. Yeah, that’s what it is.
  5. Of course you can have a safeword. Just be aware that it’ll be in Parseltongue.

We’re so excited that we’ll say it again…

Please click here to view!

 There’s a lot of research and discussion below, so if you want the short version, here it is:

The world’s largest Steampunk event, the world’s largest dark/alternative social media site, and an incredible, family-owned, hand-built resort in the Catskills are teaming up to create a Steampunk Haunted House which will be available both to those who travel there, and internationally (through special backer-only shows and live walkthroughs!)  That Steampunk Haunted House is actually already 99% completed.  We want your help to push it over the top!

Get ready! First 50 backers will be entered into a contest for having a drink with Jeff Mach and members of the Blackthorne and Haunt team!
