Your Hogwarts/Ilvermorny Houses
« on: July 10, 2016, 06:45:52 AM »
Eh, I didn't see this topic around and I'm a little surprised. If it is and I just couldn't find it, eh, at least it'll be revitalized.

It's a fun little way to get to know other raiders. I'm personally a proud Ravenclaw, even according to Pottermore, although you could make the argument that I'm a Slytherclaw. As for Ilvermorny, I don't think the Pottermore quiz did me very well, but I suppose Thunderbird works, although I had expected Pukwudgie first and Horned Serpent second, and even Wampus third.

A wise, adventuring soul, according to this sortment.

What about you guys?

Pottermore has a Ilvermorny quiz now? Man I don't even know enough about it to hazard a guess.

I am a confirmed Slytherin from back when the site first came out though (I still have to explain to my mom how Slytherin does not equal evil)

I hate explaining to people that Slytherin isn't evil. They're people of goals, ambition, and cleverness. They're kinda like businesspeople in that regard. A few corporate devils and people try to cast shade on the whole community. That aside, wasn't Merlin a Slytherin as far as Rowling's canon is concerned?

Also, to answer your question, yes, Pottermore has an Ilvermorny quiz now, as well as one for determining your wand. I hear they're working on a patronus quiz now...

A wand quiz? I know I had a wand, but I don't remember if it was a random selection or not.

Might have to get back on there. Although I hear it deletes your account if you've been gone too long

Hope my account doesn't blow before they finish the patronus quiz! I must know!

Well it turns out you can recover your info as long as you remember your old random username. Good thing I wrote it down.

Apparently I am a thunder bird, which represents the soul? Which is fine I suppose, since Thunderbird is my favorite of the native American stories, although one of the houses should definitely been based on a wolf spirit

TBF it seems our old friend J-Row doesn't exactly have the best of grasps on American ways. I haven't really done much reading on Ilvermorny myself, but I've heard that some fans are complaining that it's fairly Euro-centric for a school based somewhere in the US that takes in Canadian students. Oddly, I haven't really heard much in ways of Mexico being involved. :noidea:

No. I read the background on it today
 Basically it way up in the Northeast and was founded by one of the Mayflower passengers. But really, the US is too big to only have one official school. At least need another big one on the west coast

That would probably make more sense then, yeah. Like I said, I had only heard that there was some commotion. Maybe that's why the focus has been on the US and Canada and I haven't heard a peep about Mexico? Like, if there were a school towards the west, it would make more sense for that one to take in students from our southern nation neighbor.

I just went through the test of house and patronus. I am a gryffindor! My patronis is a borzoi!
The borzoi details are surprisingly accurate although I don't share the same silhouette (in that case I'd have the bear patronus lol).

That those who take the form of dogs tend to be friendly and loyal is no secret. The borzoi dog usually marks someone who is also easy-going, often quiet, and possessed of a good sense of humor. They have active, intelligent minds and are experts at amusing themselves, being content alone or with others. Rare is the borzoi that can manage to keep themselves bored for long. The tendency to find humor in almost anything is also common in borzois, from the mundane to the macabre. Though, naturally, the range depends on the individual. The humor comes with a helping of class and, when applied properly, they are quite eloquent people that can navigate difficulties in life with easy grace.

The Borzoi, or Russian wolfhound, is a sighthound bred for hunting everything from small rabbits to big wolves. Despite their lithe builds, they are quite strong and are extremely fast. Nothing pleases Borzoi more than running and chasing. As companions, they are gentle, considerate, and seem to find everything entertaining. They bond well with their loved ones but are known to be nervous when strangers invade their spaces, making them good watchdogs. Like most sighthounds, they have a lanky build and are graceful in almost everything they do. Setting them apart is their long, wavy coat suited for both insulating against the more chilly climes and just generally looking majestic. Borzoi have found admirers amongst everyone from hunters to Russian nobility, with whom they were extremely popular once upon a time.
