So, got the brilliant idea to re-read some of my favorite fanfictions… Yeah, even I realise this is like a super-duper stupid idea! Like I haven’t spent enough time on them already ^^ But there you have it, some I barely remember while others come back to memory straight away and with it a smile. Ok, maybe the idea isn’t that bad seeing as I would only read good fanfiction and I can even skip the parts I already know and just read the juicy bits 😛
Main fanfiction on my list is of course Harry Potter but I usually try to find some new ones after I finish an anime I liked too (but I must have seen the whole anime to not get any spoilers, that can be a bit annoying sometimes if I get a great ship early..). Read quite a bit of Kuroko no Basket and other sports anime, some Chihayafuru, Ore Monogatari!! and Orange. Not all is to satisfy my inner fujoshi either some can be other couplings like Harry and Hermione or Hermione and Draco (I’m not a Ron fan and even Rowling has admitted that Ron and Hermione is a bad pairing). Most are romance I must admit but some are PG approved, like Harry Crow by robst – now that is a great alternative to canon!
Now I’ve thought more about it, read more about the houses and I’m so a Hufflepuff. I don’t know why I ever doubted it. Had to redo the Patronus charm though and got a vole this time, I guess that’s ok too.
Did the sorting for Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and got into Pukwudgie, that also feels nice. House of healers, guess what I’ve played most in WoW ^_^
This weekend I went to a Harry Potter convent the Föreningen Magi had arranged. I didn’t dare to go on the whole thing on my own so I just went to the dinner on Saturday night. What I didn’t really expect was the level of nerdness there 😀 These were people who knew such details about the books and movies – I was flabbergast! I mean, sure I’ve seen the movies and reread the books but still, nowhere near. I’ve mostly read BL stories on fanficton.net, didn’t really say that out load though… All in all it was a nice night! My table even won the quiz!
However, I think most of the people there where Huffelpuffs, same as me ^^ and I usually don’t take well being like everyone else so today I created a new account on Pottermore and resorted myself! I know right?! Can you do that, is it allowed or is it more of an unforgivable?!? Sure, Harry did ask the sorting hat to put him in Gryffindor but I actually got sorted, stayed with that house for eleven months and now I’m thinking of changing. Still, I don’t know if I mentally can am I a Hufflepuff at heart already? I got sorted into Ravenclaw this time around and blue is so much better than yellow for my complexion! I need to research more to see where I fit in. I’m surprised I haven’t gotten Slytherin to be honest…
One thing that does seem to fit me though is my patronus! The question came up at the convent dinner too and my answer was that it would probably be a rat – and even Pottermore thinks so! Not the Pettigrew kind, more like the Death of rats of Terry Pratchetts Discworld kind. Rats are supersmart survivors but are still cute and fuzzy, I can identify with that. Maybe Ravenclaw is a better match then (being all smart and cunning and all). And me and bae would be in the same house ^_^
