So I just watched the bookaxe video on Hogwarts houses, and thought it would be cool to know other people’s houses too. I’m a Hufflepuff (which I love btw). I love that we stand for patience, honesty, acceptance, loyalty, fair play, and hardwork.
My favourite Hufflepuff is probably Tonks, she’s just such a strong and funny character (her metamorphmagus powers are also pretty cool).
We also have an awesome cosy common room!
P.s. If you want to know more on what the houses stand for, the sorting hat songs in books 1,4 and 5 are a great place to start.
Hi Amy! In the cold light of day, I'm feeling much happier about my new Hufflepuff status! I seem to be in pretty good company and I totally agree about the value of loyalty, hardwork, fair play and inclusiveness so it must be right after all... although I'm pretty sure Scott would question my patience! Can't have it all, hey!? Here's the link to the video if anyone is interested. https://youtu.be/iczvlJGS-cM. Would love to know everyone's houses too!
I'm Team Ravenclaw! We are wise, creative, not afraid to speak our minds AND we have Luna Lovegood! #proud
I'm a Ravenclaw and Gryffindor, the quiz gave me both.Ravenclaws are intelligent, individual, wise, and sharp while Gryffindors are brave, courageous, and kind. My favorite Ravenclaw is Luna Lovegood and favorite Gryffindor is Hermione Granger, Harry Potter, and Lily Potter. Do you guys no your Ilvermorny Houses? I'm a Thunderbird. A Thunderbird represents the soul of a witch or wizard and favors adventure.
@Hoot24 I have no idea what Ilvermorny Houses are (showing my ignorance, I know!) but being a Thunderbird sound exciting! Please explain!
I’m a Horned Serpent.
There’s a story on Pottermore written by J.K. Rowling that explains the origin story of Ilvermorny https://www.pottermore.com/writing-by-jk-rowling/ilvermorny (which is basically the wizarding school in America).
The short version from Pottermore is:
“It is sometimes said of the Ilvermorny houses that they represent the whole witch or wizard: the mind is represented by Horned Serpent; the body, Wampus; the heart, Pukwudgie and the soul, Thunderbird. Others say that Horned Serpent favours scholars, Wampus, warriors, Pukwudgie, healers and Thunderbird, adventurers.”
@Lucy Cruickshanks Ilvermorny is the American Wizarding School. If you have a Pottermore account, you could learn all about the history of Ilvermorny and take the house sorting quiz.
Thanks @Amy and @Hoot24. I had no idea! I clearly need to do my homework better. They have seriously cool house names, though. I'm going to check it out!
I’m a Hufflepuff/Pukwudgie. I have to say I’m not fond of the name Pukwudgie, but the description makes sense for me. My favorite Hufflepuffs are Tonks and Newt.
