Re: Pottermore "Homies" - Add Your Username

Apr 7, 2013

I remember that feeling... but you need to look beyond the books in order to really get a feel from Slytherin house.  Harry made enemies of several key people there and colored his view of the entire populace.  

 

When I got sorted into Slytherin, I was ready to be done with Pottermore for good.  Thankfully, I stuck with it, and grew not only a new appreciation for Slytherin, but learned to love my house.  See, the stereotype is that all Slytherins are evil is just false.  The house has had it share of dark wizards - but so has EVERY other house at Hogwarts.  We're cunning, ambitious, and work really hard to achieve our goals.  Gryffindor and Slytherin are the different sides of the same coin, which is why we don't get along all the time.  We disagree about our means to the same end goal.  Gryffs go in, guns blazing.  Slytherins sit back and get the lay of the land and plot each move's pros and cons.

My favorite part of the whole house is that once you are in, you'll never be alone.  While other houses may have their weak links... we pull ours into the fold so far that no one knows they're weak. 

So, give Slytherin a shot.  You'll meet a lot of very nice people who are a lot like you.

I haven't visited Pottermore.com yet, but I was wondering, do yo get to pick your own name and is there certain questions (I believe it's questions that you are answering to get sorted) you need to answer a certain way to get into a certain house? If I were to do this, I would prefer Ravenclaw as I dig Ravens. How would I answer questions to get into Ravenclaw?


;^) You get a choice of five names to pick from. Each is two words joined together, appended by four or five numerals.

 

You're correct that there is a quiz that determines which house you get assigned to. The decision is determined by your answers. However, the tricky part is that not every student gets all the same questions, so one cannot simply write down his questions and answers to make a roadmap for others to follow.

 

Instead, I suggest just answering the questions honestly, and finding out where you end up, even if just for fun.

OK, thanks! One quick question plus a follow up. Do each house have it's own personality or trait that maybe the questions are judged by? If so, what are they for each?

Just a FYI for those that are looking to change their house by startimg over. There are apparently different sets of questions. I was resorted and i managed to stay in the same house.all but two questions were ones i previously had. So there are no set answers to get in a certain house as they are random.

;^) Yeah, they do. My take on it is that from their names, the Slytherin are the Sneaky Schemers, The Hufflepuffs are the Out-Of-Shape Dullards, the Gryffindors are the Cool Kids, while the Ravenclaws are the Brainiacs. I'm second-guessing that Rowlings added the Ravenclaws as a second groupd of cool kids, to prevent the cliche of Gryffindor being the only cool kids.

 

Of course, there are more subtleties than that. Group statistics do not apply to the individual. Each house has its selfish students, dumb students, bright students, athletic students, etc. But in general, they seem to match the cliches as I've described them. At least to me.

 

I can't say how accurate the test is, but it assigned me to Ravenclaw, for what that's worth.
