Favourite Hogwarts House
“By Gryffindor, the bravest were
Prized far beyond the rest;
For Ravenclaw, the cleverest
Would always be the best;
For Hufflepuff, hard workers were
Most worthy of admission;
And power-hungry Slytherin
Loved those of great ambition.”
- J. K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Main reason? Pottermore totally put me in that house. I love it. Intelligence, wit, Luna Lovegood. There's nothing to dislike! It's founded by Rowena Ravenclaw and there definitely isn't enough attention placed on it. I like to think I'd be sorted into the house 'for real' if I had received my Hogwarts letter (blatantly had a faulty owl delivering mine). The house has its own resident ghost (as do the rest), Helena Ravenclaw aka The Grey Lady. Again, she doesn't feature heavily in the books which I think is a shame! The head of house is good ole Professor Flitwick, and their colours are blue and bronze.
