Why do you think hufflepuffs get so much hate among potter heads? I don't get what's wrong with hard work, loyalty, kindness and patience? (Granted, I'm a little biased, being a hufflepuff myself) Love your blog btw
As the HP wiki says about Hufflepuff’s reputation, “According to Minerva McGonagall, all four of the houses have produced exceptional witches and wizards in their time, but due to Helga Hufflepuff’s policy of accepting any student and its usually poor performance in the House Cup, Hufflepuff is often thought to be the house of less talented wizards. However, this is merely a misunderstanding of the Sorting Hat’s poem.”
The line of the poem they’re referencing probably being: Good Hufflepuff, she took the rest.
So yeah I agree with the wiki, there’s this idea that Hufflepuffs were too mediocre to belong to the other houses so they were just lumped somewhere else. That’s why it became “insulting” to be called a Hufflepuff, because you’re supposedly lame and not really good at anything
except finding. I’ve recently noticed more acceptance and Hufflepuff pride though so we must be making progress!
