I had always assumed that each house had roughly the same amount of students sorted into it at Hogwarts, so it just makes sense that it’s the same on Pottermore. All the houses have really great attributes, and being in one doesn’t mean that you lack the qualities of the others. Look at Neville—he fought with the hat because he didn’t think he was brave enough to be a Gryffindor and look what he became. Look at Hermione—she probably should have been sorted into Ravenclaw because of her brains and obsession with her grades, but being in Gryffindor opened her up to a side of herself that she didn’t know she had.
So you’re in Gryffindor. Maybe you’re braver than you thought.Hufflepuff? You’re more loyal than you give yourself credit for.Slytherin? Maybe it’s time to take your goals more seriously, use that cunning and ambition that you didn’t think you have.Ravenclaw? It doesn’t mean that you have to love school or even do well in it—you just have to admit that you’re curious about the world and want to learn things (even if it’s only unconventional learning).
And really, at the end of the day, your house is just where you sleep at night.

Ginger wizard you just called fat? He’s skipping the chicken. Muggle-born you called ugly? She spends hours trying to shrink her teeth to normal size. Potions teacher you just attacked? He’s been abused by the husband of the love of his life. Boy with the lightening-shaped scar? For 11 years, he’s lived in a cupboard under some stairs. Slytherin you just made fun of for crying? He had to kill his Headmaster to make his parents proud. Reblog this if you’re against bullying in the wizarding world.

The weeping angel you called ugly? She can’t even look at herself in the mirror. See that unemotional Cybermen? He used to be one of us. The Oods that you make fun of? They get treated as slaves everyday. The lady that you called crazy? She knows all of time and space. See the weird man with the bowtie and the fez? He’s the loneliest man in the universe. Reblog this if you’re against bullying in the Time-Space Continuum.

Sometimes, it makes me so angry to read essays/rants about Snape and how wonderful it was that he could love Lily so much that he would risk everything blah blah blah. Because he didn’t. He had an infatuation and a huge guilt complex, and that doesn’t give him a free pass to be a bully and treat Harry like shit just because he lived while Lily died.
And Petunia, I don’t care how upset you are that your sister got to go to Hogwarts and you had to stay at home. So what if it seemed like your parents liked her more. I’m sorry Snape made a tree branch fall on you, but join the club. Nothing gives you the right to lock a kid in a closet and starve him just because he might be like his mom.

[image description: Screencap of a question and answer from crazynastyasshufflebadger.tumblr.com. The question reads: “Anonymous asked: Dear wise, old, Huffle Badger, Someone pasted the word “retarded” on their head and called themselves a Hufflepuff. I called them out on being Ableist (which is discriminating against people with disabilities) They only made fun of me more. What is the proper response to this?” The answer reads “Other than giving Huffle Badger their current location, there’s not much you can do, unfortunately. Huffle Badger can tell you’re a true Hufflepuff, though — Hufflepuffs are genuinely concerned with being fair, just, and kind to everyone, regardless of sexuality, gender, race, religion…etc. The most you can do is what you did: make that person aware of their mistake. Huffle Badger isn’t perfect either, and occasionally slips up in its verbiage. But, if a person decides to be ignorant and hateful after you try to enlighten them:
Fuck them.
Huffle Badger isn’t amused by such people, and neither are most sensible people worth knowing. Huffle Badger is proud you stood up for what is right, even if you were mocked in the end. Your temporary embarassment from being mocked is just that — temporary. The memory of them acting like an ass and trying to validate it— that will last forever.
Again, if you’re entirely sure you don’t want to give Huffle Badger their current location…Huffle Badger hasn’t had a rude shit to slap in over 24 hours…Its claws are itching to deliver some swift, backhanded justice.”]

Proud to be a puffling.

GIVEAWAY :)
Hey guys, so here’s that giveaway I was saying I’d do. Basically I’m a compulsive shopper, so I have a ton of Harry Potter shit that I really don’t need/want/have room for. I have two necklaces, a pin I bought at LeakyCon 2011, and several pieces of filmstrip that my friend took from the cinema where he works ;) The filmstrip looks cool if you tack it against a window so the light shines through. Love all these things, but I never use any of them. So the prizes are:
Prize #1: a Golden Snitch locket [featured in the first two pictures] and five cuts of filmstrip from the Deathly Hallows Part 1 trailer [bottom picture]. 
Prize #2: a flying key necklace [fourth picture] and the “I Heart Neville” pin [third picture].

Rules:
Reblog this post up to five times [that’s five entries] in its entirety, but no more than once per day. I’ll probably check, because I have no life (I just don’t want you to spam people’s dashes…yep). To make sure I don’t get confused, likes do not count as entries.
I don’t really care if you follow me or not tbh.
Contact me via ask box if you’d like to know how to get an extra entry. Heh.
Make sure either your ask box or submit button is enabled so that I have a way to contact you if you win!

I’ll pretty much ship anywhere. If you think you live somewhere really kooky feel free to ask me if I’ll ship there but the answer is probably yes. 
I’ll put all your usernames in a spreadsheet to keep track of how many entries you have. Then I’ll use random.org to pick two winners. 
Whoever’s username comes up first will have first pick of which prize they want and will have 48 hours to respond. After they respond I will contact the second winner. If you guys have any questions about the items or stuff like that, just ask.
GOOD LUCK :D
[edit: Forgot to say when the contest ends! I’ll be picking winners on September 3rd.]
