Put On Your Sorting Hat!

It seems that Amanda and Kriston and Josh got into a Harry Potter-related tiffaroo today over whether it would be better to be from Hufflepuff or Ravenclaw or Gryffindor...yeah, yeah, EVERYONE wants to be from Gryffindor. There were many contentions made, some erroneously. Wife of DCeiver shall now settle them.

"I've always found that the Hufflepuffs get a bad rap. They come across as the nice ones. They are fiercely loyal to their friends. And Hottie Cedric Diggory is in Hufflepuff. Amanda should not at all be insulted by being thought of as a Hufflepuff. 'For Hufflepuff, hard workers were most worthy of admission,' says Rowling, who adds, 'You might belong in Hufflepuff where they are just and loyal, those patient Hufflepuffs are true and unafraid of toil.'

As for Ravenclaws not being charged with saving the world, don't forget that Luna Lovegood - one of the foremost members of Dumbledore's Army, was in Ravenclaw. Plus Rowena Ravenclaw's diadem was a crucial part of saving the world in Deathly Hallows. If you want to chill, smoke cigarettes, and not worry about saving the world, you should be in Slytherin. That said, I'm totally in Gryffindor!"

Yeah. One of the things that never made sense to me is why they kept Slytherin around. To me, it's a violation of common sense akin to staying in a house occupied with homicidal ghosts. Know what? Fuck that. It's not for me. If I had gone to Hogwarts, and been told that basically every wizarding shitheel had come from the same house, I'd have been like, "Come on! Let's go over there right now and introduce these jerks to some Muggle concepts--like a molotov cocktail or my boot up their asspipe!"

Anyway, I'm from Dunnington House. We have a laundry, and our rooms always smell like clean sheets. And we don't have to walk nearly as far as the Courtenays.

Oooh, I forgot about Cedric being from Hufflepuff. Good point, WoD.

Also: according to Sorting Hat Josh later in the day, Cath & Kriston are both in Slytherin because, "only Slytherins vlog."
