Hogwarts houses

For those of you who have read Harry Potter or heard of Harry Potter there is a school where most witches and wizards go called Hogwarts. There is a sorting hat that sorts you in  different houses. There are four houses each. They are; Ravenclaw, Gryffindor, Huffllepuff and Slytherin. Ravenclaw is for the intelligent and witty people. Gryffindor is for the brave and loyal people. Hufflepuff is for the loyal, honest and hardworking. Slytherin is for the cunning and ambitious. The sorting hat chooses the house that fits you most. The sorting hat also takes your choice on what house you want to be in. According to Dumbledore, it's not our abilities what we truly are it's our choices. It's just like with Harry. Harry is a parselmouth, which means that he can talk to snakes. The sorting hat wanted to put Harry in Slytherin but Harry fought it and prevented it and it put him in Gryffindor. I think Ravenclaw is the house I want to be in because I feel like I belong there and it is a house for educated people. I am educated and I think I will be sorted in this house. Gryffindor doesn't sound terrible but it is also another choice for me if I'm not sorted in Ravenclaw. Hufflepuff isn't the house for me. I may be hardworking and I have some Hufflepuff traits but I don't feel like it is the house for me. I mean some people say that Hufflepuffs are dufflers and I don't want to look like a duffler.
Slytherin, definitely not! I mean that is the house that Lord Voldemort was sorted in and most people who are dark are sorted in this house and very few good people are sorted there. I'd rather die than get sorted in that house. And I will have a very few friends there and I will be an outcast and disliked by most people.
What about you? What house do you want to be sorted in to and not want to be sorted in to? Please leave a comment.


  1. I feel like Ravenclaw is the house for me too, because I value intelligence over other traits... I'm definitely not brave enough to make it to Gryffindor.

    But hey, stop discriminating against Hufflepuff and Slytherin: hard-work and ambition are important traits too!

    1. I know, I'm just saying my opinion.
