I judge a person’s depth in the HP fandom based on their opinion on Hufflepuffs
If they still see them as the doofus house with collective munchies, we’ll keep the conversation light, stick to cannon, and very short.
“Hard workers” is a step up.
Scarred of crossing a Puff? Knowing they’re going to be the most loyal friends you have no matter if you’re fighting or how far you’ve become physically/mentally/emotionally? Let’s be true fandom friends <3

Lacing up roller skates, biting into Popsicles with front teeth, robes tied around wastes, dice rolling off of tables and onto the floor, sitting on handlebars, socks falling down in boots, hands cupped into megaphones, icicles falling tip first into snow, translucent butterflies, high top sneakers, turning door knobs slowly, chalk screeching across chalkboards, counting stars late at night, skateboards balancing on the edge of half pipes, professions of love outside apartment buildings, boom boxes blasting classical music, mix tapes crushed with hammers, walking away in mid sentence, pools of fire, solving one side of a Rubik’s Cube, slap bracelets, stunning toes on end tables, smeared dry erase marks, walking into glass doors, tipping soda cans into recycling bins, forgetting contact lenses, makeup running down faces and hair gel left on ears, falling asleep in history class, fish flailing on the beach, faded crosswalks, driving on the shoulder, taking a trip to la la land, diving into lakes, golden iPhone cases, and talking over others even though you yourself hate the feeling of being ignored.
Every listicle about which Star Wars characters go in which Hogwarts houses is bullshit. They always make Leia a Ravenclaw or a Gryffindor. Leia is a Slytherin. She was raised a princess but even that wasn’t enough for her, she was like “I’m gonna overthrow the government, bitches.”
And Han Solo is not a bad-ass Slytherin, he is a Hufflepuff, because every five minutes he is dropping his own agenda to help his friends not die doing whatever crazy shit they’re about to do.
The biggest Gryffindor in the whole trilogy is R2D2, because every beep of his can basically be translated as “Hold my beer and watch this,” usually followed by him getting zapped by something and falling over.

Paintbrushes clattering off of easels, tackle hugs that end up with both people on the floor, the sound of cameras clicking, pomegranate tea in color changing mugs, racing everywhere one goes, waking up twenty minutes late, gripping so tightly that ones fingers turn white, jumping off of the stage, vipers hiding in tall grass, graphite smudges left on doors and walls, turning away from the mirror, covering eyes with ink stained hands, lollipops hanging out of glossy lips, using phones as flashlights, losing sneakers in gym locker rooms, doodling on the back of tests, tacking sleep onto lists of things to do, lamb’s ear rubbing against already soft cheeks, freckles dancing across the bridges of noses, perfectly manicured nails covered in sloppily applied polish, seeing ghosts everywhere, making paper doll chains out of old newspapers, buying birthday presents last minute, mixing paints together to create ones not bought, improvising poetry on the spot, open windows, dresses that stop just above the knee and overalls that stop even shorter, flashing lights, lost shuttlecocks, and being able to express your thoughts so easily through art but finding yourself tongue-tied when trying to explain them yourself.
Gryffindor & Hufflepuff -sweet summer child -close, intimate, heartbreak mending hugs -giggles “that’s what she said” -likelihood you’ll fall in love with them +9999999% -probably still owns a stuffed toy
Ravenclaw & Slytherin -already wrote an encyclopedia on all the ways they’re better than you -judging you not-so-silently -“my words are both poison and exilir. tempt me, if you dare.” -intimidating at first bUT THEYRE ACTUAL CINNAMON ROLLS -“aw you didn’t have to do that!-…what do you want?” -too many trust issues, someone just HUG THEM
Gryffindor & Ravenclaw -already stalked you on all your social media accounts -board games. video games. gaaames. -always has a mess. somehow knows where everything is. -BUSY. friends, hobbies, school/work, internet til 2am, busy. -PUNS
Slytherin & Hufflepuff -knows who they will search for first during the apocalypse -“i trust you with my life. don’t let me down” -literally gives the best first impressions -it’s actually a little scary how much they could be hiding -work, work, work, workwork
Hufflepuff & Ravenclaw -“god you’re so fucking weird and i love it” -that friend who never yells at anyone until they do and everyone is terrified -my otp is better than yours -“rules were not made to be broken unless i say so” -happier when all is peaceful and quiet
Gryffindor & Slytherin -“NO I WILL NOT CALM DOWN YOU CALM DOWN” -that friend that shares all the hot selfies they find. (bless them) -has never made a good decision after 2am -*loses something* *blames it on you* *finds it 2min later with their stuff* -selfie game too strong
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
There lived four wizards of renown, whose name are still well-known: Bold Gryffindor from wild moor, Fair Ravenclaw from glen, Sweet Hufflepuff from valley broad, Shrewd Slytherin from fen. They share a wish, a hope, a dream, they hatched a daring plan, to educate young sorcerers, thus Hogwarts school began.
Gryffindor: not being strong and/or brave enough to face their fears, past demons, being seen as weak or too co-dependant, never living up to their dreams, being laughed at by the people they love, someone doubting their capabilites, losing at something they worked hard to achieve, being bullied in front of lots of people and not knowing how to defend themselves, not being able to help someone who is ill/hurt, being the one person in Gryffindor who struggles with confrontation
Hufflepuff: losing their temper or patience with someone or something and freaking out, worrying about freaking out in general, disappointing people-literally anyone, not measuring up to their expectations of themselves, their family’s/friend’s safety and security, anxiety over something they may have said or done that could have been nothing to actually worry about at all, not being/doing enough in anything they work on, being the one person in Hufflepuff who has a hard time being patient with difficult people
Ravenclaw: never fully understanding something they have extensively researched, being wrong about a hypothesis, failing or not doing well at subjects they struggle with, being the only person to actually care about the grade in group projects, being rejected by instituions that uphold intelligence and creativity, never finishing a project, not feeling unique enough to stand out, settling for a boring and unadventurous life, being the one person in Ravenclaw who is not good with riddles
Slytherin: losing the trust of people they love for a misunderstanding, being betrayed by people they thought they could trust, their darkest and most embarrassing secrets being released, losing touch with their overall goals, not living up to their family’s expectations/traditions, having to chose between two sides that they care equally about, visably falling apart due to stress, letting a great opportunity slip between their fingers, not showing their best face, being the one person in Slytherin who wants to see past tradition and the old ways.
