Today is the day ya’ll finally find out what house I have been sorted into. I am a Ravenpuff.
Being sorted into a Hogwarts house is super important in any Potterhead’s life. I’ve been sorted twice. The first time, I was just taking silly quizzes online since I had missed the Pottermore sorting. The website had stopped sorting people and I couldn’t be properly sorted, so I just did the best I could online. I was placed in Hufflepuff. I was happy with Hufflepuff. Then Pottermore revamped itself and came out with a new sorting quiz. This time I was placed in Ravenclaw. I had a hard time with this until I started to do a little research into the houses. I started to learn about who else had been sorted into Ravenclaw, like Jane Austen’s Elizabeth Bennett. I am sooooo an Elizabeth Bennett! That made it seem to be more ok with me.
And just look at this: Sense AND sensibility?! Um hello, that is an actual Jane Austen title! It’s a match made in Pottermore heaven.
And what about Luna Lovegood? Is it just me who always forgets that Luna was in Ravenclaw? I always forget this little bit of information. I always just pair her up with the other core 4 (Ron, Harry, Hermione, Neville) and just leave it at that. But no – Luna was a Ravenclaw. I have so much in common with Luna, so now I can start to really really accept the fact that I could be in Ravenclaw.
Then I decided that I would do what I had seen online quite a few times, and smash my two houses together calling myself a Ravenpuff. I do think that I am more Hufflepuff, but if Pottermore is telling me I’m a Ravenclaw, I think I need to respect that decision. Although, Rowena Ravenclaw is said to be from Scotland, which makes sense to me now since we all know how much I identify with my Scottish heritage!
A recent Buzzfeed quiz I took told me exactly what percentage each house I am. I am exactly 30% Ravenclaw AND Hufflepuff. Which kind of makes sense. I was still placed into Ravenclaw, even though I told it I wanted Hufflepuff. Then I found this image just a few days ago on Pinterest, which basically sums up what I identify more with Hufflepuff than any other house, but I will still accept that deep down in there somewhere, I am a Ravenclaw.
