Pottermore – The digital heart of the Wizarding World

So, have any of you visited Pottermore yet? If so, have you found out which Hogwarts House you belong in? Which wand you should have? What your Patronus is? Which House in Ilvermony you belong in? Have you ever been curious about any of these things?

I got curious and joined Pottermore so that I could found the answers to these questions (my results are listed below). I got my hubby signed up on Pottermore because I was curious to see what his answers were to the same questions (I won’t share his unless he gives me permission to do so).

I’m pretty happy with the results I got. I was surprised on which house I was sorted into. I thought I would be sorted into Hufflepuff, to be honest. I didn’t have any expectations on the other things prior to answering the questions. The only thing I wished they’d have is which pet should you have while in school. That I’d be curious to see….

Hogwarts House: Gryffindor

Patronus: Tortoiseshell Cat

Wand: Ebony Wood with a dragon heartstring core, 12 1/2″ and slightly springy flexibility

Ilvermony House: Horned Serpent

Famous Quotes (Fred & George Weasley edition)

Twins Fred and George Weasley……started out as students of Hogwarts, both Gryffindors, and eventually became owners of a joke shop called Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes. They were a couple of my favorite characters from the Harry Potter series. They provided lots of fun and entertainment throughout the entire series, even when the series took a darker turn. Below are a few of my favorite quotes from Fred and George….

‘Yeah, he’s nipping off to the Chamber of Secrets for a cup of tea with his fanged servant,’ said George, chortling. (Chamber of Secrets)

George: ‘We tried to shut him in a pyramid,’ he told Harry. ‘But Mum spotted us.’ (Prisoner of Azkaban)

‘What do we want to be Prefects for?’ said George, looking revolted at the very idea. ‘It’d take all the fun out of life.’ (Prisoner of Azkaban)

‘We didn’t give it to him because he was a Muggle!’ said Fred indignantly.
‘No, we gave it to him because he’s a great bullying git,’ said George. (Goblet of Fire)

‘Anyone can speak Troll,’ said Fred dismissively, ‘all you have to do is point and grunt.’ (Goblet of Fire)

‘Yeah, size is no guarantee of power,’ said George. ‘Look at Ginny.’
‘What d’ you mean?’ said Harry.
‘You’ve never been on the receiving end of one of her Bat-Bogey Hexes, have you?’ (Order of the Phoenix)

‘I don’t believe it! I don’t believe it! Oh, Ron, how wonderful! A prefect! That’s everyone in the family!’
‘What are Fred and I, next-door neighbours?’ said George indignantly… (Order of the Phoenix)

‘“E” for “Exceeds Expectations”. And I’ve always thought Fred and I should’ve got “E” in everything, because we exceeded expectations just by turning up for the exams.’ (Order of the Phoenix)

Famous Quotes (Professor McGonagall edition)

Professor Minerva McGonagall….teacher of Transfiguration and Head of Gryffindor House. She happens to be one of my favorite characters from the Harry Potter series. There are times that she is a pretty stern teacher but she also shows that she cares for the students that attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft & Wizardry. I am pleased to present to you some of my favorite quotes made by Professor McGonagall at some point during the Harry Potter series.

The house of Godric Gryffindor has commanded the respect of the wizarding world for nearly ten centuries. I will not have you, in the course of a single evening, besmirching that name by behaving like a babbling, bumbling band of baboons! (Goblet of Fire)

Minerva McGonagall: [to Harry, Ron, & Hermione] Why is it, when something happens, it is always you three?
Ron Weasley: Believe me, Professor. I’ve been asking myself the same question for six years.
(Half Blood Prince)

Potter, take Weasley with you. He looks far too happy over there.
(Half Blood Prince)

‘Is it true that you shouted at Professor Umbridge?’
‘Yes,’ said Harry.
‘You called her a liar?’
‘Yes.’
‘You told her He Who Must Not Be Named is back?’
‘Yes.’
Professor McGonagall sat down behind her desk, frowning at Harry. Then she said, ‘Have a biscuit, Potter.’
(Order of the Phoenix)

‘May I offer you a cough drop, Dolores?’
(Order of the Phoenix)

Neville: Are you actually giving us permission to do this?
McGonagall: Yes, Longbottom.
Neville: Blow it up? Boom?
McGonagall: BOOM!
Neville: Wicked. How do you expect we do that?
McGonagall: Why don’t you confer with Mr. Finnigan? As I recall, he has a particular proclivity for pyrotechnics.
Seamus: I can bring it down.
McGonagall: That’s the spirit, now away you go.
(Deathly Hallows)
