Quotations & what not from Pottermore (WaveLight7866)

  • Wand:
    • Wood: Larch
      • "Strong, durable and warm in colour, larch has long been valued as an attractive and powerful wand wood. Its reputation for instilling courage and confidence in the user has ensured that demand has always outstripped supply. This much sought-after wand is, however, hard to please in the matter of ideal owners, and trickier to handle than many imagine. I find that it always creates wands of hidden talents and unexpected effects, which likewise describes the master who deserves it. It is often the case that the witch or wizard who belongs to the larch wand may never realise the full extent of their considerable talents until paired with it, but that they will then make an exceptional match."
    • Length: 11 1/2
    • Flexibility: Unyielding
    • Core: Unicorn
  • Patronus:
    • Wolf
      • they are independent, strong-willed and often misunderstood (which can define my personality and may correspond to the descriptions of Ravenclaws: "our people are the most individual" & "some might even call them eccentrics")
      • wolves are extremely attached to the significant few they love and respect
      • they are loners, but still they seek the comfort of their packmates
  • House:
      • "Our emblem is the eagle, which soars where others cannot climb; our house colours are blue and bronze, and our common room is found at the top of Ravenclaw Tower, behind a door with an enchanted knocker. The arched windows set into the walls of our circular common room look down at the school grounds: the lake, the Forbidden Forest, the Quidditch pitch and the Herbology gardens."
      • "our people are the most individual – some might even call them eccentrics. But geniuses are often out of step with ordinary folk, and unlike some other houses we could mention, we think you’ve got the right to wear what you like, believe what you want, and say what you feel. We aren’t put off by people who march to a different tune; on the contrary, we value them!"
      • "our Head of house, Professor Filius Flitwick. People often underestimate him, because he’s really tiny (we think he’s part elf, but we’ve never been rude enough to ask) and he’s got a squeaky voice, but he’s the best and most knowledgeable Charms master alive in the world today."
      • "Our dormitories are in turrets off the main tower; our four-poster beds are covered in sky blue silk eiderdowns and the sound of the wind whistling around the windows is very relaxing."
  • Favorite core classes:
    • Astronomy
    • Charms
    • Potions
    • Transfiguration
  • Quidditch position:
    • I would be enthusiastically supporting and cheering for my team... from the stands...
  • Pet:

  • Amortentia:
    • fresh grass
    • home-made cinnamon cake
  • Horcruxes:
