This post is sharing my answers on Pottermore along with other random Harry Potter facts I’ve discovered about myself if I were a witch, since I have invested a lot of time in this fandom over the years!
Hogwarts House: Ravenclaw.
Ravenclaw Traits: Intelligent, Wise, Sharp, Witty, Individual.
Famous Ravenclaw Characters:
- Luna Lovegood (my favourite character!)
- Cho Chang
- Gilderoy Lockhart
- Filius Flitwick
- Sybill Trelawney
- Quirinus Quirrell
- Garrick Ollivander
Ilvermorny House: Thunderbird
Named by Chadwick Boot after his favourite magical beast, the Thunderbird, a beast that can create storms as it flies. Thunderbird house is sometimes considered to represent the soul of a witch or wizard. It is also said that Thunderbird favours adventurers.
Thunderbird Traits: Represents the soul, Favours adventurers.
- Ebony wood
- Phoenix feather core
- 11″ in length
- Slightly Springy flexibility
Ebony: This jet-black wand wood has an impressive appearance and reputation, being suited to all manner of combative magic, and to Transfiguration. Ebony is happiest in the hand of those with the courage to be themselves. Frequently non-conformist, highly individual or comfortable with the status of outsider, ebony wand owners have been found both among the ranks of the Order of the Phoenix and among the Death Eaters. In my experience the ebony wand’s perfect match is one who will hold fast to his or her beliefs, not matter what the external pressure, and will not be swayed lightly from their purpose.
Phoenix: This is the rarest core type. Phoenix feathers are capable of the greatest range of magic, though they may take longer than either unicorn or dragon cores to reveal this. They show the most initiative, sometimes acting on their own accord, a quality that many witches and wizards dislike. Phoenix feather wands are always the pickiest when it comes to potential owners, for the creature from which they are taken is one of the most independent and detached in the world. These wands are the hardest ti tame and to personalise, and their allegiance is usually hard won.
11″ in length: The following notes on wand length are taken from notes on the subject by Mr Garrick Ollivander, wandmaker: Most wands will be in the range of between nine and fourteen inches. While I have sold extremely short wands (eight inches and under) and very long wands (over fifteen inches), these are exceptionally rare. In the latter case, a physical peculiarity demanded the excessive wand length. However, abnormally short wands usually select those in whose character something is lacking, rather than because they are physically undersized (many small witches and wizards are chosen by longer wands).
Slightly Springy flexibility: The following notes on wand length are taken from notes on the subject by Mr Garrick Ollivander, wandmaker: Wand flexibility or rigidity denotes the degree of adaptability and willingness to change possessed by the wand-and-owner pair – although, again, this factor ought not to be considered seperately from the wand wood, core and length, nor the owner’s life experience and style of magic, all of which will make the wand in question unique.
My Patronus: Dolphin
My Hybrid House: RavenPuff (Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff)
Blood Status: Half-blood
My Hogwarts Best-friend: Ginny Weasley
My Hogwarts Partner: Neville Longbottom
I answered a whole load more questions (30 in fact) here if you want to check them out.
Thank you for reading this blog post, I hope you enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed writing it. My favourite thing about the Harry Potter generation is how serious (sirius) we all take our Hogwarts houses!
