WELCOME-DELCOME-TQELCOME to today’s partayayaYAY of our week long blogoversary celebration! This is Srta Aila speaking, and let’s get this fiesta rolling.
The title of this post is in reference to the unforgettable series of Harry Potter, and the topic will be FINALLY revealing who-in-the-what-de-dut-houses all of us at Happy Indulgence are in! I know we’ve had some Twitter conversations over this, but this time it’s settled. (After continuous tests on Pottermore. Hopefully.) And thus, I am glad to present…
Looks like Jenna’s houses favor creatures that fly! Being of both Ravenclaw and Thunderbird, that is. (Fun fact: When searching up for the “thunderbird” logo via Google, the first thing that pops up is Mozilla Firefox’s logo. Let’s see how long it takes Harry Potter fans to change that, shall we? 😉 ) Jenna’s first house was Hufflepuff, and now she’s a consistent Ravenclaw. To be honest I can totally see her as a Ravenclaw though! First of all blue goes well with everything so there’s that (maybe I’m just biased against yellow), but she’s also extremely sagacious too. Not like the “I’m old so I’m wise” kind of sagacious, but the “Yo don’t mess with me I’m a PhD student and can psychoanalyze you” kind of sagacious.
The rest of the traits of Ravenclaw students according to Pottermore Wikia (that place is great for resources okay) is:
Students in Ravenclaw are noted for their individuality and acceptance of people and things that others would consider weird. They can also be quirky and possess unusual intellectual interests. While others may be inclined to shun and ridicule such people, Ravenclaws generally accept and celebrate these eccentrics.
Once again, I can totally see that. Jenna’s big heart definitely opens up to all kinds of people, eccentric or not (unless you’re trying to steal her lab work then back the heck off), as well as her unlimited understanding.
It’s so weird trying to describe myself and the houses I fit into. I can say that every single Harry Potter quiz, whether it’s on Buzzfeed or some weird Facebook app (hey it was the 2011’s okay) or Pottermore has sorted me into Slytherin, including after the recent changes on Pottermore. So I guess I’m a Slytherin, though and through. It’s interesting to see that I got Horned Serpent too! I’m not a huge fan of snakes but I guess they somehow describe me in the Pottermore world? Although in my mind I’m 1/2-scholar, 1/2-warrior. I wonder why in fantasy books/worlds they sort those two in completely different categories.
Just so you know though I’m totally not on board with the Salazar dude’s thinking of pure-bloods! That kind of close-minded thinking is what limits progress in society (in my opinion). It makes me sad to see that Slytherins come off as the meanie-bobeenies in the HP books. 🙁 Remember guys, Harry also has traits of a Slytherin so don’t hate – appreciate.
Jeann used to be a Ravenclaw, but now is a Hufflepuff! Then again, the Horned Serpent is pretty close to a Ravenclaw, so it totally makes sense. I can totally see her being both though (divergent tehee). All those adjectives mentioned in the above graphic totally fit her though! She’s always there when you need her, and is 110% dedicated to things and people she’s passionate about, whether it’s books or gaming or anything else. I would also say she’s modest (you’re a Jeann-ius Jeann, don’t forget that) and exceptionally compassionate.
Further reading on Pottermore Wikia shows:
Hufflepuff has produced the fewest number of dark wizards than any other house at Hogwarts. Their cheerful and friendly demeanour can probably account for this property of the House. Hufflepuff firmly demonstrated its loyalty during the Battle of Hogwarts in 1998, when they were second only to Harry Potter’s own house of Gryffindor in the number of students willing to stay and fight against Voldemort and his forces in the defense of their school.
Let’s have an applause for these humble Hufflepuffs! I feel like they’re so underrated because people overlook them, when in fact they quietly trump all the other houses, if not in points than in dignity. Plus, they’re near the kitchens too which is awesome.
I love seeing how diverse our Happy Indulgence group is, in terms of houses! We’re all in different Hogwarts houses, and the only shared house is Jeann and I’s Ilvermorny house. Sorry for the shorter descriptions on those (they were the only ones I could find, okay), but I’m hoping to see more information on them in the upcoming movie! Wahoo.
