people are comparing Hogwarts houses with the new Ilvermorny houses, trying to find which Hogwarts houses = which
Ilvermorny houses. But I think that the reason you’re sorted in to each house is different between the two schools, so there no way to just line them up right next to each other.
Hogwarts goes by what traits are important to you and what you value in a person where as Ilvermorny seems to be more of what part of you defines who you are
these are two different things- sometimes they will match up, but not always.
gryffindors value bravery and being daring,
hufflepuffs value loyalty and hard work,
slytherins value ambition and being cunning,
ravenclaws value intelligence and creativity.
horned serpents are defined by their minds and what they think,
wampuses are defined by their bodies and what they can do,
thuderbirds are defined by their souls and what they have found,
pukwudgies are defined by their hearts and who they have helped.
gryffindors can be horned serpents because they think about ways they can get out of a bad situation (think hermoine)
hufflepuffs can be horned serpents because they use their minds to help others and work hard learning ways to help others (I can’t think of an example of someone off the top of my head but I’m thinking of an environmental lawyer who uses their mind to help save the earth)
slytherins can be horned serpents because they use their mind to achieve their goals and talk their way out of a bad situation
ravenclaws can be horned serpents because they use their mind to be creative and their intelligence is what they use the most
gryffindors can be wampuses because they push the limits of what they can do
hugglepuffs can be wampuses because they use their hard work to get better and better at what they’re good at and will fight for those they are loyal to
slytherins can be wampuses because they are cunning and will do whatever they need to get what they want done
ravenclaws can be wampuses because they use their creativity to come up with new ideas to get what they want done.
gryffindors can be thuderbirds because they go out no matter the danger and what they have found along the way
hufflepuffs can be thunderbirds because they look at what’s inside someone and what they have found in their soul
slytherins can be thunderbirds because they care about what they think and what matters to them on the inside- not what others consider important.
ravenclaws can be thunderbirds because they are creative and care about what’s inside your soul
gryffindors can be pukwudgies because they are chivalrous and want to help people
hufflepuffs can be pukwudgies because they care about helping people and think that what’s in the heart that matters
slytherins can be pukwudgies because they care about a few people that are really close to their hearts and want to make sure those they care about are above everything else
ravenclaws can be pukwudgies because they use their creativity to help people- it matters what’s in their hearts and how they use it to help others
I love how everyone thinks that McGonagall is gonna retire today after seeing James Sirius’ name on the list of first years. Do you honestly think that all of the Potter and Weasley kids don’t call her Grandma Minnie?? Like honestly Harry has so much respect for that woman and there’s no way she wasn’t around to watch those kids grow up. Hell she probably sent James a pack of chocolate frogs to enjoy on the ride to Hogwarts!
