My Random Thoughts

My Pottermore sorting

Due to the release of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, I have decided to create a new Pottermore account to see where I would fit in today. My old one was Ravenclaw, Dun Stallion (I really don’t get this one so I have always said it was a sloth instead), Silver Lime wood with a Unicorn hair and Pukwudgie (I don’t see myself in this house).

Hogwarts House

So without further ado I got sorted into

This doesn’t surprise me as I have always identified with it. I have identified with this house as 

I left school years ago but I have never yet stopped learning. Once I learn one thing I have to do something else. At the moment I’m doing a computer course, I’m not technically learning anything I am doing it to get a piece of paper that (or so I have been reliably informed) will help me get a better job and have a higher chance of being employed by the biggest employer in town. 


Next was my Wand and I got this

 So according to Pottermore this is:


I have often found that those chosen by maple wands are by nature travellers and explorers; they are not stay-at-home wands, and prefer ambition in their witch or wizard, otherwise their magic grows heavy and lacklustre. Fresh challenges and regular changes of scene cause this wand to literally shine, burnishing itself as it grows, with its partner, in ability and status. This is a beautiful and desirable wood, and wand quality maple has been among the most costly for centuries. Possession of a maple wand has long been a mark of status, because of its reputation as the wand of high achievers.


Unicorn hair generally produces the most consistent magic, and is least subject to fluctuations and blockages. Wands with unicorn cores are generally the most difficult to turn to the Dark Arts. They are the most faithful of all wands, and usually remain strongly attached to their first owner, irrespective of whether he or she was an accomplished witch or wizard. Minor disadvantages of unicorn hair are that they do not make the most powerful wands (although the wand wood may compensate) and that they are prone to melancholy if seriously mishandled, meaning that the hair may ‘die’ and need replacing.


Orca – It’s no mistake that orcas are nicknamed “killer whales.” They are one of the most effective hunters in the ocean. Orcas use teamwork and complex communication skills to hunt and the same cunning to protect their young. With the fierce, calculated protection of an orca on your side, you can rest assured that the Dementors will be no match for you.

Ilvermorny House

I honestly don’t know much about the Ilvermorny houses but as this is the house of the mind I think I’d be alright in here. I am a logical person who needs to know how things work in order to understand them (unlike one of the computer programs at work which I think is older than me). I do think that like Ravenclaw this would challenge me intellectually.


I am actually quite happy with the results. These are much better than my original ones. My next plan is to sort my son as my daughter is a Hufflepuff and proud, not bad with a Dursley for a dad. 

What is your Pottermore Sorting and do you agree with it or like me did you say you had something else? Let me know in the comments.

  1. The first time I got sorted into Hogwarts, I got sorted into Ravenclaw too! But when the site upgraded, I got re-sorted into HUFFLEPUFF! Which at first, I was in denial, but I’m starting to get comfortable lol. I’d like to think I’m cool with being in the same house as Cedric Diggory and Tonks, even though theyre both dead……………. anyway!! My Ilvermorny house is Thunderbird, which sounds so cool!

    1. My daughter was sorted into Hufflepuff and I had to explain that it wasn’t a boring house because at the time the most well known Hufflepuffs were Cedric and Tonks. Now they have Newt she’s overjoyed. Thunderbird does sound like a cool house

      1. Yeah I thought Hufflepuff was boring too because they don’t get into any trouble with the other houses and have the least amount of Dark Wizards or Witches. But I think that track record is really good, that kinda makes them pure and special. 🙂 And Newt is a precious little bean who must be protected at all costs!
