The Harry Potter 30 Days Challenge #6

Welcome back for the 6th day of The Harry Potter 30 Days Challenge. Leannaatc @Short Story Long had this idea of a month full of Harry Potter and you can find the prompt for each day here here.

– Day 6: Which house would you want to be in? –

I like that this questions the house you would WANT to be in, as opposed to the house you ARE (yes people, ARE because Pottermore has sorted me already, and as I said before, I’m a proud Ravenclaw).

I’ll approach this on two different fronts. The first will be the house I kind of wish I was in, and then why I’m happy to be a Ravenclaw. Ok?


Yes, Gryffindor says what?! I don’t want to be courageous and what-not, I would ideally like to not be judgmental at all.


                    The Sorting Hat says it best:

“You might belong in Hufflepuff,
Where they are just and loyal,
Those patient Hufflepuffs are true
And unafraid of toil

“For Hufflepuff, hard workers were
Most worthy of admission;”

“Said Hufflepuff, “I’ll teach the lot
And treat them just the same.””

I mean, Hufflepuffs are just and loyal, patients and they treat everyone equal, it doesn’t matter who your family is, or if you’re super smart or not so much, or brave or a little afraid… everyone had a place in Hufflepuff, and that is quite the goal, right?

Oh, and it is the house who has produced few dark wizards from all!

“The Hufflepuffs virtually to a person stay, as do the Gryffindors. Now, the Gryffindors comprise a lot of foolhardy and show-offy people. That’s just the way it is. I’m a Gryffindor I’m allowed to say it. You know, there’s bravery and there’s also showboating, and sometimes the two go together. The Hufflepuffs stayed for a different reason. They weren’t trying to show off, they weren’t being reckless. That’s the essence of Hufflepuff House.” – J.K. Rowling

Also, Tonks is an Hufflepuff, and Sprout, and Hannah Abbott (who marries Neville), and Cedric, …

And check this BuzzFeed post if you’re still not convinced that Hufflepuffs rule!

Ravenclaw: “Wit beyond measure is man’s greatest treasure.

Before I did the sorting I was sure I was going to end up a Hufflepuff, don’t really know why, but then I was sorted into Ravenclaw and it made sense. Ravenclaw values intelligence, knowledge, and wit, I mean it has an eagle as its symbol!

                     But as the Sorting Hat said:

“Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw,
if you’ve a ready mind,
Where those of wit and learning,
Will always find their kind;”

“For Ravenclaw, the cleverest
Would always be the best;”

“Said Ravenclaw, “We’ll teach those whose
Intelligence is surest.””

So, Ravenclaws are smart, witty, they have a love for knowledge and, unfortunately, they think they are a little better than other people… but hey, in this, the only house that does not fail is Hufflepuff!

I’m a proud Ravenclaw, and I choose blue and copper, by the way – still not sure why they changed the colours for the movies.

And, we have the fantastic Luna Lovegood in our house!!!

    My situation is the reverse of yours! I wanted to be a Ravenclaw or Gryffindor but I got Hufflepuff. I am still pouting a bit, but now that you reminded me Tonks is a Hufflepuff I feel a little better! =) Such a great post!
