The Houses as Nice Sounds
Ravenclaw: Rain pounding on the windows. Book pages being turned. The world underwater. A heart beating. The flutter as cards are shuffled. Piano music. The whisper of the wind.
Gryffindor: Fire crackling. A cat purring.
The pop as a cork is removed from a bottle.
Thunder. High heels tapping against tile floors.
Birdsong. The roaring crescendo of applause.
Slytherin: Waves crashing against the sand. Fresh snow crunching underfoot. Whale song. Coins clinking against each other. Ice cubes in a glass. Old music. The silence right after a storm.
Hufflepuff: Laughter. Leaves rustling in the breeze. The soft murmur of a stream. Bumblebees buzzing. Stones skipping across a lake. Bubbles popping. The final note before a song fades away.
