being in ravenclaw is not about being smart. it’s about loving learning, being curious and motivated to learn, enjoying wit and wisdom where it comes. i desperately want to see a ravenclaw who isn’t an academic genius at all. who isn’t considered ‘smart’ by school measures, or maybe by other measures as well. someone who takes a long time to pick up on things, to think things through, to figure them out, and sometimes can’t comprehend some things at all. someone who, despite the hardship, truly loves learning. someone who works so damn hard to satisfy their curiosity, because it makes them happy, and they want to spend their whole life doing it. i want a ravenclaw who is not about being 'smart’, but is about being curious, being passionate, and always, always being ready to learn.
