My Pottermore Results
If you are like me and enjoyed Harry Potter series as a kid then you have definitely wondered where the Sorting Hat would place you. In Gryffindor, where the brave of heart dwell? Perhaps in Hufflepuff where everyone is just and loyal? Or in Ravenclaw with those of wit and learning? Maybe in Slytherin with those of great ambitions?
Have you taken the Pottermore quiz more than once to find out if you’d be a Gryffindor? Because I sure wanted to be a Gryffindor; after all, Harry Potter himself was one. Ever since I read Harry Potter as a kid, I wondered what my house would be. I have taken this great quiz multiple times, and each time I’ve gotten the same results. Spoiler alert: It was not Gryffindor. I guess I was not brave enough.

“Wit beyond measure is man’s greatest treasure.” J.K Rowling
This was obvious when I thought about it. I am a huge bookworm but not studious. I like to read for the sake of reading. I have an insatiable hunger for stories. I am curious about things that interest me. Also, a little imaginative, I suppose. I am definitely not brave enough to be in Gryffindor, not ambitious enough to be in Slytherin.
Wand: Alder wood with Unicorn hair core.
That’s good, I suppose. Unicorn hairs are definitely hard to come by. I bet this stuff is expensive.
The below excerpt is from Pottermore:
About Unicorn hair:
Unicorn hair generally produces the most consistent magic and is least subject to fluctuations and blockages. They are generally the most difficult to turn to the Dark Arts. The most faithful of all wands are usually attached to their first owner, irrespective of whether they were an accomplished witch or wizard.
About Alder wood:
Although an unyielding wood, its ideal owner is helpful, considerate and likeable. When happily placed, an alder wand becomes a magnificent, loyal helpmate. Best suited to non-verbal spell work, whence comes its reputation for being suitable only for the most advanced witches and wizards.
Patronus: Calico Cat
A calico cat is a domestic cat of any breed with a tri-colour coat. I googled that. I did not know what a Calico cat was. I don’t even like cats much; they are too judgemental; I am a dog person. Professor Mc Gonagall’s animagus was a cat, so I suppose it’s not all bad.
But according to Pottermore:
The cat is the watchful guardian of the Patronus world and embodies the dichotomy of things, often managing two opposing things at once. Fickle but somehow also loyal, they tend to be quite intelligent and alert individuals who know when to move and when to take it easy. As such, they have excellent patience when it suits them. They may seem laid back, but do not forget that the cat is a hunter. Calicos are hailed as extremely observant, lucky cats. Those with a calico may have an uncanny ability to make things happen or affect outcomes to make them more favourable. Whether or not they actually move to do so depends on the person. Calicos can be quite rare as far as cats go but tend to be affectionate, “sweet”-natured people who bond well with others but still manage to maintain their independence.
So what’s your house?
