This case started with the Slytherin. They didn't know they were a Slytherin at a young age since HP wasn't out yet, but they did know that they had A PERSONALITY and that when they wanted to do what they wanted to do then they did it and SO HELP someone who got in their way. They knew this much about themselves and that meant that they would be able to realize what they needed in a relationship; someone who would accept them for who they were but wouldn't get run over by their personality and what they wanted.
And so the hunt started, and it went as well as such things can be expected really. They were able to try and date but they'd realize within three months that it wasn't working. Time and time again. Of course when they met The Gryff they weren't too keen on dating them at all. They were hard headed and wouldn't budge on anything.
But they were also consistent. When the Slytherin wanted to get up and go to the gym at the early hours of the morning to play badminton who was the only other person who showed up? The Gryffindor. They built a mutual respect for each other. And so they eventually started to trust each other and talk to each other as friends.
This is where the second part of what the Slytherin knew needed to be in their relationships came into place. She knew that she needed someone who would be able to tell the truth, especially when it was hard. Someone who wouldn't be scared to tell her when she was overstepping her bounds, which easily happens when you're distracted by your goals and aspirations. This Gryffindor was able and willing to do that. He was interested in bonding on that emotional level and was not interested in lying because that would be denying who he truly was. So they were able to understand each other at a fundamental level.
Then the last part of the trifecta came about; food.
The Gryff's secondary house is Puff and therefore almost intrinsically loves food. The Slytherin had always felt that food showed love and safety throughout her childhood, it was something that she would demand be a certain way and if it wasn't SO HELP the person who didn't give that food to her. The Gryff loved good food and was willing to get it and share with the Slytherin.
So that's how it came to be; the introspection of knowing that a Slytherin needed someone who wouldn't change because of her. A Gryffindor who was willing to keep his gym related promises day after day after day until a trust could be formed. Long conversations into the night about things that needed to be discussed and were full of truth.
Thus ends the case study of this Slytherin and the Gryffindor.
