Four reasons as to why house prejudices are entirely baseless and you shouldn’t follow them -
- Hermione Granger being brightest witch of her age and still being a Gryffindor because she valued friendship and bravery more than her intellect.
- Hermione Granger not being rash when caught by inquisitorial squad but instead coming up with a Slytherin worthy plan to not only lure Umbridge out of the castle but effectively put her in danger by taking her to Grawp.
- Hermione Granger channeling her Hufflepuff and being loyal to Harry even when love of her live threatened to walk out on her (and eventually did)
- Hermione Granger proving her brightest witch of her age title by keeping Harry safe from raiding death eaters, snatchers and literally every freaking person in Britain by her Ravenclaw worthy unbeatable knowledge of protective enchantments, a feat which was not achieved by even full grown wizards and aurors.
So you see, Hermione Granger was all that, and still a Gryffindor through and through. Because your abilities don’t define your house, your choices do.
“A scarlet steam engine was waiting next to a platform packed with people. A sign overhead said Hogwarts Express, eleven o’clock. Harry looked behind him and saw a wrought-iron archway where the barrier had been, with the words Platform Nine and Three-Quarters on it.
Smoke from the engine drifted over the heads of the chattering crowd, while cats of every color wound here and there between their legs. Owls hooted to one another in a disgruntled sort of way over the babble and the scraping of heavy trunks.”Happy September 1st, y’all!
calm me and let me taste the salt you breathed
while you were underneath
i am the one who haunts your dreams of mountains
sunk below the sea
i love you so much.
do me a favor, baby, don’t reply,
cause i can dish it out, but i can’t take it.
