Hello! Hope you’ve all been having a lovely time while I’ve been away! I’m not going to lie, my hiatus (in my heads up post I made a point of not calling my time away an official hiatus but let’s be honest, it kinda turned into one!) has been pretty stressy: I have had a lot of uni work to do, and I’ve been preparing for leaving uni next year including going to my first ever proper interview which was terrifying. But now, I feel a bit more chilled, a bit more organised and to be honest, I was just really, really starting to miss blogging, so here I am!
As you can see from the title of this post, today I’m going to be going through my Pottermore profile. I was inspired to do this post watching two of my favourite youtubers, Dan and Phil, on their gaming channel, taking the Pottermore quizzes themselves.
Brave, courageous, chivalrous, daring, bold
Ok, I’m sorry Pottermore, but I’m not a Gryffindor. Like, I’m actually not a Gryffindor. I am Hufflepuff for life. I feel like a Hufflepuff, everybody I know says I’m a Hufflepuff and every single online quiz I have taken EXCEPT the official Pottermore quiz has sorted me into Hufflepuff. Nothing against Gryffindor, all of the houses have their merits but I am just more Hufflepuff. I can also put myself in Hufflepuff using Harry Potter lore, because I would ask The Sorting Hat to put me in Hufflepuff. So there, Pottermore!
PEAR WOOD, PHEONIX FEATHER CORE, 12 and 3/4″, SLIGHTLY YIELDING FLEXIBILITY
Right, I may not agree with my Hogwarts house but I am in love with my wand. According to Pottermore, pear wands perform best in the hands of warm-hearted, generous and wise people and there isn’t a known occurrence of a Dark witch or wizard having a pear wood wand. What’s not to love? In terms of the core, phoenix feather is apparently the rarest core type (which is exciting because we all like to be unique!) as they are pickiest when it comes to their owners. They are also hard to tame which I wouldn’t mind, because I like working hard and striving towards a goal (can I just point out that Hufflepuff’s are unafraid of toil? See, I am a Hufflepuff!).
I was pretty pleased with my Patronus when I first saw it, I mean first things first, it’s a bird and I have a pretty big obsession with flying. I couldn’t find a section on Pottermore itself which explained the significance of the Patronuses so I did the natural thing, and took to Google. Apparently, ospreys symbolise power, vision and spirit and they can lead us to find the lost parts of ourselves. All of this sounds pretty good for a Patronus I’d say!
My Ilvermorny House
Represents the heart, favours healers
I’m not going to lie, I’m not hugely familiar with Ilvermorny or the different Ilvermorny houses (Ilvermorny is a school of witchcraft and wizadry in North America) but from reading my bio (and from the great name) I am pretty pleased to be in Pukwudgie!
So there we have it, my Pottermore profile! Have you taken part in any of the Pottermore quizzes and what were your results? Do you agree or disagree with them? Would you ask the Sorting Hat to put you somewhere else?
