A thousand years or more ago
When I was newly sewn,
There lived four wizards of renown,
Whose names are still well known:

Bold Gryffindor, from wild moor,
Fair Ravenclaw, from glen,
Sweet Hufflepuff, from valley broad,
Shrewd Slytherin, from fen

With 31 July just around the corner, I’ve been cooking up a lot of Harry Potter-inspired pieces! This House series was so much fun (Oh and you can now get prints of these in my Etsy *wink wink*)

  • Newt Scamander: Magical creatures? No I haven't seen any- *trips and ten bowtruckles fall out of sleeve* oh those aren't mine I'm just holding them for a friend- *frantically tries to pick them up, niffler falls out of back pocket* right, if you'll just let me explain- *turns around and three murtlaps, a herd of erumpets, one litter of curps and the entirety of New York's dog pound fall out of his coat* LISTEN-

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. 

Horned Serpents

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

the houses as autumn aesthetics
  • slytherin: cold and grey mornings, walking barefoot on the cold floor, drinking coffee in the morning, wool socks, relaxing after a stressful day
  • ravenclaw: waking up early, looking out the window while drinking hot tea, staying up for too long reading a book u like, falling asleep to the sound of rain
  • gryffindor: sweaters that are too big, walking in the forest while quietly singing, sitting infront of the fireplace when its cold, vanilla scented candles
  • hufflepuff: wearing jackets that are too big, taking a walk while its raining, wool sweaters, kicking leaves while ur walking, autumn scented candles

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.

What the houses really are
  • Gryffindor: stubborn pieces of shit
  • Slytherin: snobs that secretly love romantic comedies
  • Ravenclaws: those people that say "the test was so hard i'm going to fail!" and then get straight A's, also they are fucking nerds who love anime way to much
