    Well I’m not at all surprised, and I am a little bit stuck…
    Hufflepuff – 2
    Slytherin – 4
    Ravenclaw – 4
    Gryffindor – 3
    So once again, I’m a Slytherclaw!

      Oh, dear, your comments were stuck in the spam folder for some reason! I’ve rescued them, though, and I’m glad you’re enjoying the adventure! I’ve always wanted Ravenpuffs to be a thing. 😀

    Mine was mostly c’s, so Ravenclaw again! But it didn’t beat out Slytherin and Hufflepuff by much. I’m definitely not a Gryffindor though – too risk averse, I think 🙂


  3. Nicole @ Boundless Bookaholic says:

    Slytherin by one answer. I got Ravenclaw on Pottermore. That was the second house based on my answers to the above questions. I think Slytherin was my second house on Pottermore. So guess the sorting hat would have to chose between those two for me 🙂
