One of the most important parts of Harry Potter is the houses each student is sorted into. These houses act like your family when you’re at Hogwarts and you can earn or loose points for your house depending on your behaviour. And at the end of the year, the house with the most points earns the House Cup, a glory all houses dream of getting.
Each house has a particular trait labelled to it, and also have stereotypical beliefs to them as well.
Gryffindors are the brave and daring– the house that everyone wants to get into; it’s the “best” house. This is the house where Harry, Ron, and Hermione were put into.
Ravenclaws are the smart and witty– the second most wanted house if somehow one doesn’t get into Gryffindor. Luna Lovegood and Cho Chang were in this house.
Hufflepuffs are the loyal and kind ones– the third most wanted house. For years, this house has been views as the “lamest”, the house that is the least favourite, yet still better than Slytherin. Cedric Diggory and Newt Scamander were in this house.
Slytherins are the ambitious– the least favoured house particularly because all the dark wizards that emerged came from Slytherin. Draco Malofy, Crabbe, Goyle, Blaise, Pansy were all in this house.
But in my opinion, I love all the houses and I don’t believe we should have house discrimination. Slytherins are just as good as Gryffindors, Hufflepuffs are amazing one of a kind, and Ravenclaws are the nicest ever. Just because we belong in one house doesn’t mean we can’t be friends with someone from another. Harry Potter and Luna Lovegood were examples of this. Thus without further adieu…
My House is…
Ravenclaw! And I’m proud!
I’ve always been a Ravenclaw ever since I can remember. I’ve taken so many tests, even the official one on Pottermore, and most of them have said that I’m a Ravenclaw. I have the Ravenclaw scarf, the Ravenclaw robes, and my favourite colour is blue, so it couldn’t be more perfect!
Though one thing I’m sad about is that there is no Ravenclaw main character in the Harry Potter franchise as of yet. Harry, Ron, and Hermione were the Gryffindor stars, Newt Scamander as the Hufflepuff star, and Scorpious and Albus as the Slytherin stars. There has been no Ravenclaw main character yet, but I’m crossing my fingers that there will be one soon!
What do you think? What is your Hogwarts House?
