Hello friends, any fellow Harry Potter fans on here? I myself am a Ravenclaw, which makes sense in certain aspects of my personality. However if I were a blend of two houses I would be a Huffleclaw (Ravenpuff?) for sure.
I was thinking the other day about Hogwarts houses, and obviously, no one fits into their house completely, but I thought it would be fun to go through the traits of the house according to Pottermore and see how well I do fit.
“Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw,
If you’ve a ready mind,
Where those of wit and Learning,
Will always find their kind.”
– The Sorting Hat
So we will start with the colours of the house which is blue and bronze. (They were blue and silver in the movies I’m afraid). My favourite colour is blue so it was truly meant to be. Not really much to say about the colour bronze though, but it’s meant to represent the wings of the house animal which is an eagle. Blue was chosen to represent the sky and bronze for eagle feathers.
Speaking of the house animal, I love birbs (yes birbs) and the eagle is a majestic bird. It represents broader vision and strength of mind and heart. I think this reflects who I am as a person. As a writer, I can see beyond the conventional and have been blessed with an overactive imagination. The strength of the mind and heart is also something which I feel I have. I may not be physically strong but I know I’m mentally strong, and I love freely.
According to Rowling all the houses represent or correlate to one of the four elements, which creates balance when they are together. Ravenclaw is related to the element of air… I’m sure there is a quiz for this hold on.
So I got water…
Ravenclaw prizes wit, learning & wisdom. Other traits include; intelligence, creativity, originality, individuality, and acceptance.
Wit: Le’Boo says his favourite thing about me is my sense of humor.
Learning: I love learning, I’m doing a PhD, I’ll have completed 9 years of university when I’m done.
Wisdom: Mmmm I suppose I’m wise beyond my years, but I definitely don’t know everything. In fact the more I learn the more I realise it’s impossible to know everything.
Intelligence: People think I’m smart…
Creativity: Well this I agree with I’m a writer but I also draw/paint/write music etc…
Originality: Aren’t we all?
Individuality: Again yes I would say so. I’ve found my path through life to be tough as I don’t like to do things conventionally, and people often distrust me or find this weird.
Acceptance: Unless you’re being a complete a$#wipe to other people I don’t mind what you choose for your own life. You do you, friend.
“Wit beyond measures is man’s greatest treasure.”
– Etched on Rowena Ravenclaw’s diadem.
Some interesting thoughts.
According to legend, Rowena Ravenclaw’s diadem was meant to increase the intelligence of the wearer.
An eagle-shaped door knocker asks you riddles before you can enter the Ravenclaw common room, and while this sounds amusing at first, imagine coming back after a long day studying in the library?
“Ravenclaws tend to be curious about the world and pay attention to the world around them. Ravenclaws are known to be logical and rational.” – Fandom Wikia
Professor McGonagall and Hermione Granger were both almost Ravenclaws, but ultimately the hat decided on Gryffindor.
Clearly, Luna Lovegood was one of the best characters in the series, and she was a clever, albeit strange Ravenclaw.
So shout out your house below in the comments. I want to see the Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, and Slytherin homies! Also where are my fellow Ravenclaws? If you don’t know your house yet that’s ok, I’ve linked Pottermore below. Go treat yourself to the sorting ceremony.
Have a great day guys!
