I love all things Harry Potter, so of course, I was there when Pottermore was in beta, I took every sorting quiz the moment they came out and I love reading the pieces that J.K. Rowling occasionally puts out (especially the Quidditch World Cup a few years ago.)
My Hogwarts House
I’ve always been torn with this one, because I feel split between Gryffindor and Ravenclaw – but Pottermore put me in Ravenclaw.
I’m still waiting for a Ravenclaw main character in the Wizarding World universe.
I wish there was more information about the Patronus on the website. What does each one mean? Why is mine a fox? I really would like to know J.K.
According to Muggle.net, this is what my Patronus says about me:
Fox – Associated with cunning, the fox has a place in many ancient cultures’ folklore. Foxes are sometimes thought to be tricksters, leading the unsuspecting down a path of demise. The calculating fox can outwit its enemies with strategy and adaptability.
I love that my wand is phoenix feather, most of all – but the blackthorn wood is nice too. This is what Pottermore says about blackthorn:
Blackthorn, which is a very unusual wand wood, has the reputation, in my view well-merited, of being best suited to a warrior. This does not necessarily mean that its owner practises the Dark Arts (although it is undeniable that those who do so will enjoy the blackthorn wand’s prodigious power); one finds blackthorn wands among the Aurors as well as among the denizens of Azkaban. It is a curious feature of the blackthorn bush, which sports wicked thorns, that it produces its sweetest berries after the hardest frosts, and the wands made from this wood appear to need to pass through danger or hardship with their owners to become truly bonded. Given this condition, the blackthorn wand will become as loyal and faithful a servant as one could wish.
Basically, my wand wood and I are like a pineapple: prickly on the outside and sweet on the inside (sometimes).
This is what Pottermore says about phoenix feather cores:
This is the rarest core type. Phoenix feathers are capable of the greatest range of magic, though they may take longer than either unicorn or dragon cores to reveal this. They show the most initiative, sometimes acting of their own accord, a quality that many witches and wizards dislike. Phoenix feather wands are always the pickiest when it comes to potential owners, for the creature from which they are taken is one of the most independent and detached in the world. These wands are the hardest to tame and to personalise, and their allegiance is usually hard won.
My wand and I are going to bond so hard, you don’t even know.
My Ilvermony House
I just feel like there is nowhere near enough information about the houses of Ilvermorny. I’m not invested. I mean I love the Thunderbird, so yay – but it just doesn’t compare. Yet.
Have you taken any of the sorting quizzes on Pottermore? Did you agree or disagree? Feel free to grab this tag if you also love Harry Potter!
