Pottermore, Are You There?

Hello, Harry Potter fans.  Are you a member of the New Pottermore?  Have you been sorted into your Hogwarts House?  How about your Ilvermorny House?

Funny, but I have been sorted, in both places, to Houses with Serpents.  Yes, I’m Slytherin at Hogwarts, and Horned Serpent at Ilvermorny.

And just this past weekend, I discovered my Patronus.  J.K. Rowling says in her essay about Patronuses that the animal you get isn’t necessarily what you like, but what you are, inside.  So Arthur Weasley’s Patronus is a weasel, but Ron’s is a terrier!

I feel a kinship to the Weasley Family, because my Patronus turned out to be a Stoat.  Many of you have no idea what a Stoat is, and I was unsure, so I learned about it.  A Stoat is a relative of the weasel, is found all over the world, and when it puts on its white winter coat, it is known as the Ermine.  Interesting connections!  My Patronus gamboled around me, and just looked cute and playful.  Isn’t he cute?  They do have sharp teeth, and are good hunters.
