deaniebeanie: Your wand is cypress and phoenix feather right? So is my brother's. He's in Gryffindor, and to be honest, cypress tends to chose Gryffie-kids. Not to say you're Gryffie-esque xP just:
"Cypress wands are associated with nobility. The great medieval wandmaker, Geraint Ollivander, wrote that he was always honoured to match a cypress wand, for he knew he was meeting a witch or wizard who would die a heroic death. Fortunately, in these less blood-thirsty times, the possessors of cypress wands are rarely called upon to lay down their lives, though doubtless many of them would do so if required. Wands of cypress find their soul mates among the brave, the bold and the self-sacrificing: those who are unafraid to confront the shadows in their own and others’ natures."
Highlighted buzz-words in associated house colors ^^
That's pretty true Bex, but to be fair, those attributes also sound pretty descriptive of Snapes personality (besides the whole "bold" part), and he was a Slytherin through and through. (Even though he's most likely to have Birch as his wand wood since it correlates with his birthday on the Celtic calendar; but you get my point)
While I don't consider myself noble, I find myself being rather self sacrificing for those that I love. It's pretty awesome your brother and I have the same wand wood and core though! He's the first person I've met with both of them.
