House // Wand // Patronus



I've always found something incredibly satisfying about answering a few questions and being presented with something that proclaims to represent me in some way. I think it's because I feel as though I'm constantly changing, or at the very least just constantly changing my mind, so I can never quite decide where I would fit.

My surprise at being sorted into Gryffindor over Ravenclaw all those years ago still hasn't entirely disappeared. I'm probably somewhere in between the two and I think that's quite a nice place to reside.

Despite knowing nothing about Ilvermorny, during the sorting quiz I felt that same feeling of curiosity and excitement that I felt when I was sorted into my Hogwarts house. I'm a Thunderbird and I don't entirely know what that means, but I certainly feel an affinity with it. In some way. Somehow.

In years gone by, when asked what I thought my Patronus would be I would mutter something about a rabbit or perhaps an otter, but in truth I was never really sure. A rabbit would probably be too obvious. And I just think otters are cute. As you can see, I hadn't really given it that much thought. But somehow the selection of questions I happened to be asked on Pottermore at that particular time has managed to give me a Patronus that fits so perfectly I'm convinced it really can see into my soul.

I mean, horses can sleep standing up or lying down, and that's pretty much me right there. Also Ginny's Patronus is a horse and Ginny is nearly Jennie.

My mam's Patronus is a wood mouse, because you bet I wanted to know! It fits her perfectly and I have no doubt she would be able to fend off an army of dementors with her little wood mouse pal, they're not to be underestimated. I'm intrigued to see what my boyfriend's Patronus is once he's back from his little seaside jaunt. He's a Slytherin so perhaps he'll stay on brand and get some kind of snake. We'll see.

Are we housemates, or perhaps even Patronus pals?

  1. YESSS I find quizzes so satisfying too, especially the Pottermore ones as I love Harry Potter! I'm a Slytherin/Pukwudgie/black and white cat and my wand is unicorn hair too!

  3. I am Hufflepuff (doesn't matter how many times I take the test, I am ALWAYS Hufflepuff haha). I've come to terms with it now. ^_^
    I got mink for my Patronus (weasel family apparently, haha), and Pukwudgie for my Ilvermorny house (though I need to read up on that as I'm not completely up to date on the North American stuff).
    I think they got me pretty much accurate actually. :)

    1. Hufflepuff's are brilliant! I've taken just about every official and unofficial sorting hat quiz on the Internet and I've only been sorted into Slytherin once (not sure what was going on that day!) but I've never been sorted into Hufflepuff and I'm pretty sad about that - I'd totally make the most of being so close to the castle kitchens! Love your Patronus too! <3

  4. I still haven't done this because I can't get it to work for some reason :(

    Last time I was sorted for Gryffindor though but I think I might have been rigging the result then ;)

  5. I was a bit disappointed to see I was a Slytherin but I guess not everyone can be Gryffindor!

    1. Embrace your inner Slytherin! You're resourceful, ambitious and take time to consider things before acting. <3

  6. I haven't taken all these quizzes yet but found out my Patronus is a weasel . . . not sure how I feel about that one! I'm so with you about finding it so gratifying to take quizzes and see what the results say about me. I still have a few more quizzes to take but I'm trying to space it out because I know I'll be disappointed when I have none left!

    1. Mr Weasley's patronus is a weasel I think, so you're in good company there!

  7. I love seeing what houses people belong to, I really enjoyed reading this, Jennie! You'll have to let us know what your boyfriend's patronus turns out to be. I'm a Ravenclaw, which I think suits me, although perhaps there's a little bit of Hufflepuff in there too, I'm not sure. My Ilvermorny house is Pukwudgie but I have to admit, I haven't looked into that much yet - I plan to at some point! xx

    1. He got a wildcat, which is eerily perfect for a quiz that really depends on which set of questions you happen to get. I guess it really is magic! x
