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.

I’m a Ravenclaw with a Tonk patronus.
(it’s…basically a sweet tempered Siamese. Which is fluffy soft.)
You got the cat! I read that the Horned Serpent house is the US equivalent of Ravenclaw-that’s where the scholars reside. I always thought my favorite subjects would be History of Magic and Potions. When I went to Cambridge England, I stayed in Trinity Hall College, which was started to train canon lawyers. Their coat of arms has Ermine as an element, as the canon lawyers wore robes with ermine collars.
This might sound insane, but I’m Head of Slikerin House at Blogwarts School of Wordcraft and Bloggery. After seeing your Pottermore house, I felt that it was right to invite you to join us.
We have tasks to complete, and are currently underway the third task. If it’ll make you any more likely to join, we’re currently winning overall. 😉
If you’re interested, I’ll send you some of the details and you should be able to join!
Does Blogwarts accept adult students? I’m old enough to be your grandmother! But a total Harry Potter freak, and I’d be up to join your group. Also, I would like to have some questions answered by a young person, about what happened at the old Pottermore site. Sign me up.
Of course! There are people of all ages (I think)! If you head over to http://blogwarts.boards.net/thread/1/welcome-blogwarts-boards you can go down to the Slikerin common room and it should lead you to the forum, where you’ll be able to sign up! If you use your blog name, it’ll be easier to see who’s who! 😀
Tomorrow when I have more time. See you later!
