I find it funny that Hufflepuffs are considered weak foodies when our most prominent examples of Hufflepuffs are Newt Scamander, Pomona Sprout, Cedric Diggory and Nymphadora Tonks. None of these ever appear weak in any point of the book, and with the exception of Professor Sprout (who doesn’t get much time devoted to her period) prove themselves to be strong individuals.
In the book they are labeled as hard working, loyal, and kind. Apparently these are ‘soft’ options. Well I never knew someone who worked hard to be considered weak because it always takes perseverance to continue on in any endeavor, even ones you enjoy. Loyalty should speak for itself, it’s extremely difficult to find these days. It’s easy to write others off, it’s not so easy to stick with them, even when they have wronged you. I’d want a Hufflepuff as a friend, I’d much rather have that than someone I find it difficult to trust. As for kindness, people act like it’s an easy choice, that people are kind in general. Well I think if you take a hard look at the world you’ll find it’s very much the opposite. It’s actually rather difficult to choose kindness, when anger hate and negativity are so easy to fall into.
I just don’t understand where the idea comes from that they are weak. I’d be proud to be in Hufflepuff house.
……also the mascot is a freaking badger, go pet a badger and see how that shit works out for you.
