hufflepuff stereotype

you know the stereotype that since hufflepuffs are loyal and just theyre yellow bright sunshines (not saying they cant be).


but give me a hufflepuff that spits the blood out of their mouth and stands up with clenched fights against the bully of smaller kids. because theyre tired of waiting for the adults to do something, tired of waiting for someone to do the right thing.


give me a hufflepuff that is angry at the justice system and decides to roll up their sleeves and get started fixing it.

  • Hermione, to Draco and Harry over a cup of coffee: I'm really glad you two have finally put your differences behind you. It's a relief to watch you both have a conversation without bickering.
  • Ron, laughing: It's a little weird though, right? Next they'll be getting friendship bracelets, or something.
  • Harry:
  • Draco:
  • Harry and Draco: *simultaneously pulls down their sleeves*

The Houses on a road trip

Ravenclaw:

*gazing out window for an hour in thought*

*looking up facts about an area*

*asking to stop by the road to look at the scenery every 20 minutes*

*listening to their own music on their earbuds*

Hufflepuff:

*picks out the music*

*plays I Spy with the Ravenclaw*

*Pets the horses and cows on the side of the road*

*is the official Bringer of Snacks*

Slytherin:

*calls shotgun every time*

*argues over the music with the Gryffindor*

*puts feet up on the dashboard and starts off the karaoke competition*

*shares earbuds and annoyed looks with the Ravenclaw as the Gryffindor and Hufflepuff loudly jam out to their own music*

Gryffindor:

*argues against wearing a seatbelt, but finally is persuaded by the Hufflepuff*

*eats most of the food*

*the driver for most of the time*

*opens the sun roof and stands up while yelling into the wind*

*speeds down the highways*

23. Each house acted differently at meal times:

Hufflepuff:

  • Before anybody eats they all pass around the food
  • Everybody has a full plate before anybody starts
  • Most likely to try and feed animals under the table
  • Most memorable incident of this was when the teachers found three generations of rabbits hiding under the table (the Niffler was a close second)

Ravenclaw:

  • There are some kids reading while they eat but there’s just as many talking with each other
  • Once a week they make a point of having a meal from a different part of the world (ex Chinese food one week, lobster the next, bison the week after)
  • Ravenclaws pop in and out of the kitchen all week making suggestions to the house elves (who enjoy the challenge and always come up with a feast)
  • A few items have even been added to the regular menu this way (there was almost a riot over the beignets from the other houses trying to snatch them)

Gryffindor:

  • By far the loudest house in the hall, with everybody shouting over one another and grabbing food
  • Whenever anybody has a birthday in their house they make sure to sing “Happy Birthday” for them (at the top of their lungs, of course)
  • Birthday kid has to walk down the centre of the table (and try to avoid getting tripped)
  • Everybody learns that not all Gryffindors are good at singing, but not for lack of effort

Slytherin:

  • Polite table manners, but heaven help you if you take food off somebody’s plate, they see that as a grave insult
  • Slytherin spends all year preparing for one day to change their routine and confuse everybody (they keep changing it every year, to keep people on their toes)
  • Sometimes they all speak a different language for the meal, sometimes they communicate with hand signals without words, sometimes they all levitate everything and eat their meal while slowly floating in the air
  • One year this got so out of hand that an over enthusiastic student set the Great Hall on fire (to this day nobody knows which one it was as Slytherins never snitch on a fellow snake, so the entire house got detention)

Ravenclaw Headcanon

Ravenclaws love taking in new information and that doesn’t always mean reading. Sometimes they like listening to other people’s opinions and thoughts. Other times they want to try something new, and learn in a hands on way. Sometimes it’s just them finding joy in observing the world around them.

Here's a thought:

What if the Hogwarts sorting process is less about who you are, and more about what you need?

The sorting hat sees a boy thrust into a new world he barely understands, a boy desperate not to blend in with the crowd, and a girl who would sink as deep into her books as she is allowed, and says- what do these children need? They need courage. The courage to keep moving forward despite overwhelming circumstances and high stakes, the courage to see themselves as heroes, the courage to speak up and speak out against injustice.

The hat sees a lost girl whose world has been shattered, who can’t be bothered to fit the world she sees to others’ standards, and says- what does she need? Knowledge. The knowledge of how and why things happen, and the wisdom to accept the things she cannot change.

The hat sees a boy desperate to fill his father’s shoes, used to getting his way and confused at a world that works differently than he was taught. The hat says- he needs power. He needs an identity that will remind him that he has worth, that he can be more than he is.

I wouldn’t want to attend a hogwarts that sorted based on what universal human trait I exhibited most often. I wouldn’t want to attend a hogwarts that sorted similar personalities into uniform groups. I would want to attend a hogwarts that sorts based on its students’ needs, doing its best to help them succeed.

When dumbledore says, “perhaps we sort too soon,” maybe he sees the good that a little bit of courage, instead of a sense of self-worth inflated into superiority, could have done Severus Snape.

Maybe the most dark wizards come out of slytherin because, despite their house’s best intentions, they never quite find the confidence they need there. And it is the unsatisfied, those most disenchanted with the system, who seek to destroy it.

105. The different Hogwarts houses celebrate birthdays differently:

Hufflepuff: 

  • On their birthdays, the Hufflepuffs get woken up with cake in bed before breakfast
  • The night before the other students prepare the celebration and the cake, and they visit the kitchen for ingredients
  • The Hufflepuffs make sure to never forget any birthday, and it’s a priority to celebrate every birthday equally much, even for students who are not their closest friends
  • The students who have their birthday in summer or during the Christmas break gets celebrated when they come back in autumn, no one is forgotten
  • The student is presented with little surprises throughout the day, like all the portraits wishing them a happy birthday 


Gryffindor: 

  • The Gryffindor students have the loudest celebrations
  • The day starts with all the other students in their dormitory singing happy birthday
  • During the day the students will randomly burst into song, and they can be heard singing everywhere in the castle
  • The birthday girl/boy/person is sometimes given a crown or hat to wear during the day, and every time they see someone wearing one, they all start singing
  • Once, Fred and George Weasley enchanted the statues and suits of armour in the school to sing every time she/he/they walked by
  • The singing always drives the professors crazy, and all except Dumbledore, Lupin and Hagrid give out detentions to anyone who sings in their class 
  • “You’re SO OLD!!”

Slytherin: 

  • The Slytherins plan their birthday celebrations for a long time, with organised teams within the house for each part of the celebrations, like music, cake, decorations etc.
  • It’s important for the Slytherins to throw the perfect birthday celebrations, and the students pride themselves in having the best parties and surprises
  • Every student gets their own little party, sometimes with only their closest friends and sometimes with almost every student of the house
  • The parties are often supposed to be surprises
  • But the birthday girl/boy/person almost always figures it out beforehand
  • Every student gets a personalised verse of happy birthday or their own short song, prepared by the students in the “song group” 

Ravenclaw: 

  • Every birthday the birthday girl/boy/person has to complete a treasure hunt, and are given clues and riddles to find the treasure throughout the day
  • The clues are given written down on pieces of paper or in other magical ways
  • Each riddle leads to another clue and they eventually lead to the treasure that is hidden somewhere on the grounds or in the castle
  • The treasure varies for each student and is personalised for that specific person by their friends
  • The students of Ravenclaw always makes sure to prepare small but clever surprises for birthday girl/boy/person to discover throughout the day, all leading up to the big gift
The Homework Assignment is due in a month, what does each house do?

Hufflepuff: Creates a detailed outline evenly breaking up the work they need to get done each day to finish.

Ravenclaw: Claims to be researching for the assignment, actually has just been looking up other things. Eventually throws together something a few days before the due date.

Slytherin: Has a flawless idea of what they want to write about. Still spends the month tweaking and changing the idea to make it “perfect.”

Gryffindor: “Who dares me to do the assignment the night before lol?”

What’s REALLY inside the Ravenclaw Common Room

A/N: Not a request, but I thought we all need a pick-me-up today. Enjoy everyone, and feel free to request anything you’d like to see me write about ~

  • Seriously, do you realize how aesthetically pleasing the common room is?
  • I mean, like the blues and bronze made you feel like freakin’ royalty once you walk in
  • the most musical of the the common rooms - there’s soft sound of choir singing because of the magic, and the blue hues really calms you down REAL fast
  • I am 100% SURE that there’s AROMATHERAPY going on inside the common room:

Okay, so if there are Slytherin muggleborns, then there must have been Slytherin muggleborns during the events of Deathly Hallows. Since Dumbledore’s army wasn’t contacting Skytherins, they must have had their own means of protection.

Imagine…

Pureblood students swearing on the honour of Slytherin house that their muggleborn friend is actually their cousin (taking advantage of the fact that, from where they’re standing, Slytherin’s honour doesn’t seem to be worth much anymore).

The Bloody Baron hanging around while the Carrows are investigating all the students’ blood statuses and occasionally saying “no, they aren’t muggleborn— I remember their grandfather when he was at school here” or “definitely not— the Smiths are one oldest wizarding families I know of, though sadly they didn’t get into the sacred 28.” Safe in the knowledge that neither of them are going to argue with a ghost who’s still covered in blood.

Snape summoning students to his office and them freaking out, worried that they’re going to be outed as muggleborns, but instead being told that the Carrows are suspicious, so they’re going to come down with a ‘sudden illness’ and are to get the train home immediately.

Anti muggleborn Slytherins discovering that one of their housemates is muggleborn and going to tell the Carrows— only for about ten of their housemates to turn on them with stunning spells. They end up in the hospital wing and, by the time they’ve regained consciousness, the student in question has been hidden in one of the many secret passages that lead from the dungeons.

Later on, muggleborn Slytherins being the first to volunteer to go with Slughorn to fight in the battle of Hogwarts, followed by their pureblood friends.

Slytherin house protecting its muggleborns.

Things Ravenclaws Say #8
  • Ravenclaw: Do you hear the people sing?
  • Ravenclaw: Singing the songs of those who failed?
  • Ravenclaws: Because none of us studied and finals are near?

Ravenclaw Headcanon

A group of muggle born Ravenclaws, who were interested in filmmaking, got together and formed a film production club at Hogwarts. One year, the club made a Star Wars remake starring their pet cats. Rumor has it, McGonagall played Princess Leia.
