5 Non-Harry Potter Characters Who Are Definitely Ravenclaws

Since its release, the Harry Potter series has pulled other shows into its universe. Fans of all kinds love to categorize their favorite characters into one of the four Hogwarts houses. So, in honor of Ravenclaw Pride Day, here are five non-Potter characters that show all the signs of a true Ravenclaw!

  1. Sam Winchester from Supernatural

Sam Winchester is the true research king of the Supernatural universe. He knows everything about everything, and in a world overflowing with new creatures, Sam is ready to learn. Add Sam’s witty personality and his love for teaching others, and you’ve got a Ravenclaw on your hands. And don’t forget the fact that he (as a homeless teen) got a full-ride merit scholarship to Stanford University.

  1. Matilda from Matilda

The intellectual, witty Matilda is the epitome of a Ravenclaw. Her love for learning, books, and that clever personality sorts her into the house of blue and gold. But don’t get it confused, Matilda learns on her own time, like any good Ravenclaw. She would be bored with monotonous studies, eager to learn what she can from her wagon of books. Matilda has enough ambition and brainpower to wow any Hogwarts professor, and she can move things with her mind! She’s already such a great witch.

 

  1. Stiles Stilinski from Teen Wolf

Here’s to another researching king. Stiles Stilinski: smart, loyal, clever, and witty. After finding out that his best friend had been bitten by a werewolf, Stiles dives headfirst into the supernatural world. His wit and humor keeps his friends afloat as despair takes them head-on, but it’s his intellect that saves them time and time again. And maybe that Mountain Ash trick means he really can do magic.

  1. Alice from Alice in Wonderland

Alice, so bored with the teachings of her sister that she gets lost in a book and transported to a new world. Well, isn’t that cliché? Alice is quite the Ravenclaw. She is eager to explore and learn more about the world she’s been transported to, but she is still a daydreamer, meant to spend her days in the Ravenclaw tower with Luna Lovegood. Alice is also a clever girl; creative enough to wiggle her way out of any tough spot.

  1. Rainbow Johnson from Black-ish

Seeing as she’s a doctor, it’s obvious that Rainbow is all about the books. She’s a studious woman that sees intellect as a personality trait. But Rainbow is also a wise, caring mother. She loves her children and wants them to express themselves, to be creative and clever like she is. Rainbow values to individualistic nature of Ravenclaws, carving her own path through her life and her marriage.

Drop Everything, It’s Gryffindor Pride Day and Here Are The Tweets to Prove it

Hey! Gryffindor enthusiast here. I know what you’re thinking: “but are you actually a Gryffindor?” Yes. No, I did not take every sorting hat quiz available on the internet multiple times until I got Gryffindor. Yes, I took the *official* Pottermore quiz, and yes, I got Gryffindor the first time. Settled.

It’s no secret that all Hogwarts Houses have dedicated members with the pride of their loyalties running deep through their veins. Every house has a day to shine, and it’s time for Gryffindors near and far to unite and celebrate. Clearly, I have a lot of love for my house. But trust me, I’m not the only one. Check out these tweets by members of Gryffindor House expressing their pride.

Loud and Proud!

 

And we love you for it!

How To Be “More” Slytherin For Slytherin Pride Day

Today’s March 21st, so, you know what that means. It’s SLYTHERIN PRIDE DAY! Which is absurd given we are the best Hogwarts house. A celebration commemorating the Slytherin house should be celebrated throughout ALL of March. If you were fortunate enough to be placed into Slytherin, you are an ambitious, resourceful, and cunning leader.

 

 

ON WEDNESDAYS WE WEAR GREEN

This does not take into account our high sense of style! Here goes Draco stirring up some some trouble with Harry Potter. “You can’t sit with us,” Potter!

JOIN THE DARK SIDE

Everyone knows that the Slytherin house is notorious for producing evil witches and wizards, however, that is a long standing misconception. You are only evil if you give into evil, which is enough said for me. I present to you, the evilest of them all, the Dark Lord?

It’s a birthright 

Slytherin is all about tradition and lineage. This house also corresponds to the element of water, which is going to be my main determinate in this evaluation. For all my astrology lovers out there, if you are a water sign (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) you might just be more Slytherin than any of those who self-identify.

 

 

Don’t let it get to you though, if you believe you are Slytherin at heart, that’s all that matters. STRUT THAT PRIDE (especially with this Slytherin Edition of the series)!

7 Magical Harry Potter Facts

Even though the Harry Potter books and the movies have ended, the brilliant J.K. Rowling is still rolling out surprises and interesting tidbits about her wizarding world. These are seven of the most fascinating facts about Harry Potter.

 

 

1. Hogwarts Has No Tuition

J.K. Rowling responded to a fan who wanted to know how much it costs to attend the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Rowling stated on Twitter that there is no cost in order to attend Hogwarts. The Ministry of Magic pays for everything.

So…where’s my Hogwarts letter? Please and thank you!

2. Hermione’s Handbag was not Legal 

From an update on Pottermore back in 2015, J.K. Rowling confirmed that Hermione’s expanding handbag was not legal. The bag, which was seen being used by Hermione in Deathly Hallows, was not confiscated from her since it was not that important. Fighting Lord Voldemort was more important than an illegal handbag.

3. Hagrid Has No Patronus

Even though Hagrid is a lover of all magical creatures, Rowling had stated in a tweet back in 2015 that the reason for his inability to conjure a patronus was because it was too difficult.

What would his patronus be? Maybe a hippogriff? Or Norbert, the cutest dragon ever! (Sorry Drogon).

4. How to Pronounce Lord Voldemort

In case you didn’t know, the t in Voldemort is silent. J.K. Rowling confirmed the pronunciation of the infamous Dark Lord’s name on Twitter back in September 2015.

5. There are ‘Hatstalls’ for the Sorting Hat

This is a term for a student who takes longer than others to be sorted into a Hogwarts house. This usually happens when it takes more than five minutes for a student to be sorted.

6. Uncle Vernon Loves to Watch Top Gear

Top Gear, a show on the BBC, is Uncle Vernon’s most loved television show. Rowling mentioned this on Twitter in July of 2015 when she talked about the British Broadcasting Company.

7. Moaning Myrtle Isn’t the Weeping Ghosts’ Real Name

The Ravenclaw ghost who lurks in the Hogwarts girls bathroom, does in fact have a real name. Rowling confirmed on Twitter in May 2015, that Moaning Myrtle’s real name is Myrtle Elizabeth Warren.

I would love to go to Hogwarts for free, make the Sorting Hat have a hatstall, hang with Myrtle Elizabeth Warren, and watch some Top Gear with Uncle Vernon. (If only he were a bit nicer, of course).

The Very Best Very Potter Musical Memes

What is there to say about A Very Potter Musical? It’s one of the greatest works of all time. If you’ve seen it, you’ll understand, and if not, you should probably just go watch it right now. Not even to enjoy these memes better, just because everyone deserves to experience it. Anyone who likes Harry Potter, though, can appreciate the show’s genius, whether they’ve seen it or not.

Watching it the First Time

This really captures the humor of the whole thing. It’s already there in the source material. It’s very close to the surface. And yeah, the Harry Potter books are wonderfully funny when they want to be, but there’s SO MUCH there that can be brought out. And boy does Very Potter Musical find all of it. They spent a full quarter of their budget on a giant chocolate bar. Go watch it.

 

Cannon?

When I tell you that Malfoy is the best part of this play, I want you to understand how seriously I mean this. Voldemort tap dances. The sheer physical comedy, I simply cannot describe the genius. Half of Malfoy’s time on stage is spent rolling around. It’s genuinely dazzling. And I’m also pretty sure this is just cannon. Malfoy throws around his father a lot, but do we think his father actually cares?

 

Wisdom

Listen. Listen. It may seem like that’s a bad name for a school. But like. Hogwarts. When was the last time we thought about that? Certainly not this decade. Maybe not this millennium. Also, this is another Malfoy thing, and you know how I feel about Malfoy. I’ll try and stop. But seriously, a wizard school on Mars? That’s basically the best place I can think of. Why did they throw sci-fi in there? Because they’re geniuses.

 

Seems Fair

This may be another Malfoy thing a little! Let’s talk about Snape. He throws his cape around, he takes points from Griffindor, and I think that’s valid as it gets. And look at that wig. Honestly I could just go on forever. If you think Snape sounds good, just wait until you see Dumbledore. He’s the absolute most, and I’m amazed all the memes weren’t about him.

 

Zefron

Image via Pinterest

As someone who’s never had an opinion on Zach Effron in my life, boy do I have opinions about the Zefron poster in a Very Potter Musical. It’s so, so funny. Dumbledore would rather be defeated by Voldemort than destroy it. And Voldemort turned a poster of Zach Effron into a horcrux. They don’t explain this! Zefron poster horcrux. Of course. Makes instant sense.
