Moving Staircases
  • Gryffindor:Guys, I have a great idea.
  • Hufflepuff:We’re not capturing the giant squid to see if it’s friendly.
  • Gryffindor:Picture this: moving staircases.
  • Slytherin:That seems highly impractical.
  • Gryffindor:The whole castle becomes a giant adventure! Forces students to explore! Stretch their nerve, take some leaps of faith!
  • Hufflepuff:Not literally, I hope.
  • Slytherin:And how do they get to their classes?
  • Ravenclaw:Actually, it would force the students to pay attention to their surroundings and challenge their intellect in a variety of ways.
  • Gryffindor:Oo! Oo! And we could put in trick steps! Steps that you fall through and get stuck unless you swing yourself over!
  • Hufflepuff:We are not forcing 11 year olds to migrate through a potential death trap.
  • Gryffindor:And we could have doors that only pretend to be doors.
  • Slytherin:This is senseless bravado, Godric.
  • Ravenclaw:Intriguing. Or maybe they only lead to the right places at certain times of the day.
  • Hufflepuff:Rowena, be sensible…
  • Gryffindor:Walls that pretend to be doors! Doors that yell at you for trying to open them! Dead ends! Secret passage ways!
  • Ravenclaw:We could make it a class project for students to locate and circumvent any potential obstacles in their way.
  • Gryffindor:A competition!
  • Ravenclaw:We could do the same with the rooms themselves, as well.

I still think Harry should have been Slytherin, Ron Hufflepuff, Hermione Ravenclaw and Neville Gryffindor. We would have gotten better house diversity, Harry could have succeeded in Slytherin like Voldemort only turning out good and a friendship with Draco could have made Draco a better person and inspire Slytherin to rebel against their parents. Ron could have proved that Hufflepuff is not weak, sure Fred and George would have made fun of him for being in Hufflepuff but The Weasleys would still be proud of him and Ron could have shown there’s nothing wrong with being Hufflepuff. Hermione would have been brilliant in Ravenclaw, she would have been stuck up at first but eventually grew as a character, plus being in Ravenclaw would mean better friendship with Cho and Luna(also she might not be a bully to Luna). Neville would remain the same but his bravery would have come on his own. They all still would be friends and that shows unity and house diversity. Stuff that would be needed against Voldemort’s return and really that would have been better than the Gryffindor favoritism, Slytherin demonization and the Hufflepuff/Ravenclaw erasure we got in the actual story.


anonymous asked:

People always say that Hufflepuffs are incredibly nice, but we should have a look at what they do when you REALLY make them angry. What do you think they'd do if they were incredibly mad?

Well, you have to think about what’s really important to Hufflepuffs, which is personal connections and comfort. If you’re friends with a Hufflepuff, they can be very sweet and shower you with affection. If you make them mad, however, they’ll take all of that away. They’ll give you the cold shoulder and probably have their other friends do it too. They might even try to make you jealous by pouring their affection on someone else, just to really punish you. They’ll do their best to make you feel unwelcome (we saw how Cedrics fans treated Harry, even if Cedric didn’t condone it himself).

To get back on their good side, you’d probably have to come up with some elaborate gesture. One that is clearly well-thought out and with the right intentions. Not just, “I’m sorry please stop ignoring me,” but, “I realize that what I did was wrong and I want to make it up to you.”
