Re: Dolores Jane Umbridge: Character Analysis

I despise Umbridge more than any character but I never saw her as a Slytherin and to me it perpetuates the idea that all the really "bad" people in HP are Slytherins.

I had always thought, and secretly hoped, that Delores was a Hufflepuff.
Hufflepuffs value fair play and inclusiveness, and I doubt that Umbridge ever did.

Slytherins are cunning, shrewd, ambitious and have a strong sense of self-preservation. Sounds more like Delores, don't you think?

People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint, it's more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey stuff...
