The Houses of Hogwarts

330 21 1

The school of Hogwarts is located in the beautifully ugly land of England. The students there wear typical black uniform with long black cloaks, displaying the sophistication of the ancient school. The only differing part of uniform is the change of their ties and crest which is dependant on the Students House.


RAVENCLAW: "Wit beyond measure is man's greatest treasure"

Do you belong in Ravenclaw? Their emblem is the eagle, which soars where others cannot climb; their house colors are blue and bronze. Without wishing to boast, this is the house where the cleverest witches and wizards live. Their founder, Rowena Ravenclaw, prized learning above all else – and so do the students of this house. Another marvelous thing about Ravenclaw is that their people are the most individual – some might even call them eccentrics. But geniuses are often out of step with ordinary folk, and unlike some other houses I could mention, Ravenclaw grants you the right to wear what you like, believe what you want, and say what you feel. They certainly aren’t put off by people who march to a different tune; on the contrary, they value them!

HUFFLEPUFF: "Where they are just and loyal, those patient Hufflepuffs are true, and unafraid of toil."

Hufflepuffs are trustworthy and loyal. They do not exactly go around shooting their mouths off, but cross them at your own peril; like their emblem, the badger, they will protect themselves, their friends and their families against all-dangers. Nobody intimidates them that's for sure. Now it is true that Hufflepuff are perhaps lacking in a certain area regarding intelligence, however, they have produced the fewest dark wizards out of any of the other houses in the school. Those within this house often admire the beauty of less-materialistic devices. They enjoy the pleasantries of Herbology and the study of mythical creatures. Their house colours are yellow and black.

SLYTHERIN: "Slytherin will help you on the way to greatness"

Do you belong in Slytherin where their emblem is the serpent, the wisest of creatures? Their house colours are emerald-green and silver. The house of slytherin may appear cold and unforgiving, however to be amongst them is to be but within the brotherhood itself. They care for their own, despite not exactly showing it in the warmest of ways. Yes it is usually true that one can only be in this house if their family keep a pure and running line of wizard-blood. It is true, this house has produced the most amount of evil students - however, Slytherin embraces that in the sense that they understand the greatness of these 'evil' alumni. Terrible, but great.

GRYFFINDOR: "Where dwell the brave at heart,their daring, nerve and chivalry set Gryffindors apart."

Or finally, do you keep in Gryffindor where their emblem is the proud and great lion, the bravest of all creatures; their house colors are scarlet and gold. This house is for the boldest among you all. Those within this house master a lot of things and go beyond merely exceeding expectations. With dynamics most houses do not see often, the passionate and the fiery belong within the pride of Gryffindor.
