Your House At Hogwarts
Welcome to Bex @ Kindle Fever and I’s blog feature: Your Fate in Fiction. Every other week we will be posing a question inspired by a book. We invite others to join in the fun – answer the question in the comments or make a blog post of your own and link it in the comments so we can visit!
This post was inspired by the epic Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. If you haven’t read the Harry Potter books yet, GET ON IT ALREADY! There’s no better time! This week our focus is on HP because July is Harry’s birthday month.
So you want to go to Hogwarts, eh? Well in that case you’ve got to take your place under the Sorting Hat and see what it has to say. What will the Sorting Hat’s fate be for you – which House will you find yourself in, whether it be Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw or Slytherin.
According to the Sorting Hat:
Where dwell the brave at heart,
Their daring, nerve and chivalry
Set Gryffindors apart
Where they are just and loyal,
Those patient Hufflepuffs are true
And unafraid of toil
If you’ve a ready mind,
Where those of wit and learning,
Will always find their kind
You’ll make your real friends,
Those cunning fold use any means
To achieve their ends
Which of the four Houses of Hogwarts do you think the Sorting Hat would place you? Be honest – which House best suits you based on the traits common for each?
I think the House everyone WANTS to be in is Gryffindor, and who can blame them? It is a cool House and Harry and cohorts are residents, not to mention the Weasley Twins. However, if I’m going to be totally truthful I think the Sorting Hat would most likely place me in Ravenclaw. I”m not saying I’m a super smarty pants, but I’m sort of a nerd – I mean look at me – I’ve got a book blog that I run for fun! (giggle) I’ve also always loved to learn new things, even if it’s not necessarily meant studying as hard as I could.
I do have some Hufflepuff traits as well, I think I’m pretty just and loyal. However, I have a real problem with that “toil” part. *looks innocently around avoiding eye contact* I always picture Hufflepuff people doing hard labor type work for some reason, with big muscles. Yeah, I don’t have big muscles. I will however gladly use my brain to delegate said hard labor chores! *nods* So there my wits come in to my rescue.
So what about you?
Harry Potter has no idea how famous he is. That’s because he’s being raised by his miserable aunt and uncle who are terrified Harry will learn that he’s really a wizard, just as his parents were. But everything changes when Harry is summoned to attend an infamous school for wizards, and he begins to discover some clues about his illustrious birthright. From the surprising way he is greeted by a lovable giant, to the unique curriculum and colorful faculty at his unusual school, Harry finds himself drawn deep inside a mystical world he never knew existed and closer to his own noble destiny.
