Why You Need Pottermore.com

Whether you’re a maniacal potterhead who’s read each book and seen each movie 10 times, or just a casual fan, you’ll love pottermore.com. I’ll give you a run through of what you’ll find in this magical place, and by the time I’m done, I’m sure you’ll love it too.

Get Your House

So, I’m gonna assume you know how to create an account for things such as this and skip right to the good stuff. Anyone can create a “Which Hogwarts House Do You Belong To?” quiz, and their accuracy varies wildly. But this quiz is the official J.K Rowling endorsed quiz, so you know it’s the realest of deals.

  • Try your very hardest not to have a house in mind when you go in. My sister wanted to be a hufflepuff. She’s a slytherin, actually.
  • Answer all questions truthfully. It’s actually kinda hard to guess which answer means which house because there’s more than 4 choices.
  • Enjoy your result.

Once you’ve completed the quiz, your house will be revealed to you. I’m actually a Ravenclaw (aww yiss) and you will be directed to a cool “welcome to your new house” speech by a prefect. It’s the coolest thing ever, because it describes the relationships of your house with the other houses. You can download wallpapers, profile pictures, and other cool things.

Expecto Patronum!

Now it’s time to get your patronus! Take another quiz to discover yours. Mine is a Manx cat, which actually makes sense because I can be as moody as a cat. But you can click and watch your patronus run around, which is the actual best.

The Wand Chooses the Wizard

Another quiz, yes, but this one’s worth it. At the end, you’ll be given a wand. It will tell you Picture of wandthe wood, the core, the length, and the flexibility of your wand. Then you can read these super long articles about the different characteristics of each feature. Mine is a 14 inch hard flexibility hazel wand, with a unicorn hair core. Below is some of the cool stuff they told me for my wand.

  • Hazel often reflects its owner’s emotional state, and works best for a master who understands and can manage their own feelings.
  • 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.
  • Wand flexibility or rigidity denotes the degree of adaptability and willingness to change possessed by the wand-and-owner pair – although, again, this factor ought not to be considered separately from the wand wood, core and length, nor of the owner’s life experience and style of magic, all of which will combine to make the wand in question unique.

I told you you’d love it!
