THE SORTING HAT CEREMONY
THE NEW POTTERMORE TEST
THE NEW POTTERMORE TEST
This feature was previously titled Potter Chat, but I was asked to remove "chat" from the name because there is a podcast called Potter Chat. I figured if I had to change it I'd go way out there, so it most likely wouldn't match anything else: past, present, or future. The new name is a nod to the enormous purple megaphone Professor McGonagall used on the quidditch pitch.
Pottermore sorting hat questions (see test link farther down), but I sped up my process a bit because it was announced last week there is a new "reimagined" sorting hat ceremony coming to Pottermore and I wanted to be ahead of the curve!
I was a member of a Harry Potter social site attached to The Leaky Cauldron.org website, called MyLeaky, when Pottermore opened its gates. Everyone was afraid to take the test in fear of being put in another house. I was the brave one of all the Ravenclaws and took it first and got Ravenclaw. Most of the other MyLeaky members of my house weren't so lucky. Many of them were being put in Gryffindor, with a few Slytherins and one Hufflepuff. They kept making new Potternore accounts and asking me what answers I gave so they could get sorted into Ravenclaw, heh heh. That's when we figured out some of the questions were different every time you took the test. I don't think anyone ended up changing where they were on MyLeaky, and don't recall anyone transferring into our house either. I sincerely think, regardless of the test results, we all know in our hearts where we belong.
I did however end up taking the aforementioned house percentages test, which included all the second Pottermore Sorting Hat questions, when it showed up on a separate website and wouldn't have any effect on my Pottermore house.
As you can see I'm pretty even across the board, so I'm surprised I haven't gotten other houses more often. This Sorting Hat seems to have confused a lot of newer Harry Potter fans because I have seen a lot of people saying Pottermore put them in all the houses. I tried to explain it to a few of them, but all but one of them were snippy and rude about it, saying I didn't know what I was talking about. I wonder if the nice one was a Hufflepuff. Ha! The newer fans definitely seem to be a new breed of Potterhead.
