A day late (I know), but here’s my Harry Potter 20th anniversary post! The four houses of Hogwarts 18th century style! Hope you all like it :D

I remember my first Harry Potter book when I was a child: my mom bought the first one (as the Spanish version was quite new) for me to read while on vacation and BOOM a fan was born u.u When I think about Harry Potter, I think about one of the key literary and fiction influences from my childhood, along with A Series of Unfortunate Events.

What do these books makes you think about? What did you like the most about them?

Ravenclaw Aesthetic

None of the pictures used belong to me. The edit itself on the other hand does.

I’m slowly deteriorating into nothing but insanity.

The Houses as Your Friends
  • Gryffindors: doesn't give in to peer pressure, wants to be vegetarian but loves meat too much, never replies to messages, stresses over everything, has so many embarrassing stories, literally queen.
  • Hufflepuffs: laughs at inappropriate times, doesn't like people seeing them sad, procrastinates so badly but still manages to get everything done on time??, cries when they're ignored, can't help but make you smile.
  • Ravenclaws: instagram game strong af, has no clue about what to do in the future, best laugh ever, doesn't know when to act seriously, weird secret talents, resting bitch face, you can trust them with your life.
  • Slytherins: doesn't care if they're annoying, super touchy, tries too hard, somehow friends with everybody, eats so much but still super slim?? literally laughs at everything, secretly a sweetheart.
