The world of Harry Potter is an original creation of author
J.K. Rowling. SlytherinHouse.com is an homage to her
inspiring, spiraling, ever-widening books. A fan site like
this would be silly indeed -- sillier even than it is ! --
without great original writing to be fanatic about.
Still, though, fans have been known to grasp the Golden
Snitch now and again -- Aerosmith, for example. As the
lads themselves readily admit, Aerosmith was a group of
Rolling Stones fans trying to play like their heroes.
They may not have succeeded in playing like the Rolling
Stones, but they were good at playing like Aerosmith,
and went on to enjoy considerable success of their own.
The originals -- Rowling, Stones -- are the deng an sich: the
thing itself. Slytherinhouse.com is the Internet equivalent
of cranking up Exile On Main Street and strutting across
the room doing your best Mick impersonation.
Note: The Slytherin House illustrations were created
by the imaginative & delightful Andrea Booth.
