Sorting Hat flash app, why do you sort me into HufferPuffer? Am I a huffer or a puffer???

Seriously though every time I do a sorting hat type thing, even the SAME quiz over again, I get sorted differently. I would SO get my ass squibbed on a sorting LJ comm, because they wouldnt know where to place me.

Maybe I *am* a hufflepuff. *grumbles* At least they have the best common room.

Your icon is the best thing I have seen all day long.

I must share the icon love!!!

and are you being silly about the hufflepuffs having the best common room because although Jo has described it, it's not actually in the books! It is close to the kitchen, which is awesome. And it has squishy chairs apparently, so I guess that could be enough to go on.

I am not being silly, the huffles have the bestest common room! It is close to the kitchen and it has squishy yellow chairs and it's at GARDEN LEVEL which is great because you can see all the green fings growin' and escape by leaping out the window and spy on birdies and make squirrel friends! Also I always felt like the classrooms were ALL OVER the freaking place, so it would be best to have dorms in the middle of them all, instead of all the way in the dungeons or up in a tower.

See, I've actually thought very critically about this stuff. The lack of hufflepuff details always distressed me because of my eventual goal of writing a totally epic lifetime story of Poppy Pomfrey, the school nurse, who I am convinced was a hufflepuff. That's a long story I won't get into here.

In Conclusion:
The only good HP icon is a silly HP icon.

I tend to be sorted to either Hufflepuff or Ravenclaw. Huffleclaw or Ravenpuff, I guess.

I am a Hufflepuff, and am PROUD OF IT. Embrace your Huffleness!

See, the whole "house system" was one thing about my beloved HP that bothered me. It was just too divisive and "us against them" for my taste and I say that as someone who went to a school with houses resulting in all sorts of unnecessary drama and sniping and elitism. I never bought the "healthy competition" idea. So bleh to houses.

Also, for all the wonderful complexities that JKR put into the series, not presenting Slytherin as this monolithic pool of evil and Hufflepuff as a puddle of fail was not one of her strong suits. Sure later in the series she threw in a few Slytherins who weren't technically all that bad, but it took far too long to get there IMO.

Which is all barely on topic, so yeah, the Hufflepuff common room sounds awesome. It sounds like Hobbiton actually.

I totally always thought it sounded exactly like Hobbiton, what with all the round doors and gardening and all. And I always secretly wanted to live in Hobbiton. So. *has no point* *uses a Gryffindor icon just to be backwards*
